Tour Description

Uncover the secrets of the Paris metro! Take an alternative underground walking tour and discover a new side of the Paris subway system.

See how the Paris metro compares to the subway of other cities.

Start your tour at Abbessess and arrive at Palais-Royal, passing by Liège, Saint-Lazare, and les Champs Elysées to discover a century of progress. Your guide will share historical anecdotes and funny stories you won’t hear anywhere else as they make parallels between Paris of the past and the city today. This is your opportunity to get an answer to all your questions about Paris! This tour takes place mainly in the metro, with stops outside Abbesses and Palais-Royal to admire the entrances.

    Anne est une guide passionnée, drôle, généreuse et poignante : elle sait s’adapter à son public et ne manque pas une occasion de partager ses connaissances avec les visiteurs. On a beau prendre le métro tous les jours, un petit coup de baguette magique de Anne nous fait remarquer cette fresque ou bien ce portrait devant lequel nous passons pourtant tous les jours. Un super visite pour changer de perspective sur le métro parisien et faire un saut dans le temps.
