FAQ

A fun interactive walking tour, with small gifts and / or activities for children. If we stop for a bakery visit, coffee, other snack, these are not included, but still encouraged!  Stopping for a break during a 3 hour tour will give use an opportunity to rest a bit, as well as discuss everyday life in Paris, and talk about how to spend your time during the rest of your stay.

What is included?

If you have a last minute request, I would be happy to try and fit you into my schedule. However, in the high season, summer bookings fill up quite early!  

How far in advance should I book?

Contact me here, or send an email to thepetitguide@gmail.com, with your dates and preferred area and times. Not sure what you would like to see?  No problem, let's discuss the best option for you! I will get back to you to confirm the booking and answer any questions you may have. A 50% deposit is due at the time of booking.

How do I reserve a tour?

In general, starting around 9 or 10 am for morning tours, or around 2pm for the afternoon, works best.

What times are best for tours?

What if the weather is not cooperating?

My tours happen, rain or shine! We will adapt our route and activities to suit rain or heat.

Wear your walking shoes, bring a bottle of water, and dress for the weather. Also, some ready with questions about France and the rest of your stay if you would like tips!

How should I prepare for my tour?

If you need cancel to cancel your tour:

  • At least 8 days notice : Full refund of the deposit

  • No refunds of deposits are given for cancellations less than 7 days in advance - my tours are very customized, and often involve me going to an area to map out a plan, and make a custom tour.  This also takes into account the fact that my calendar was blocked and with that short of notice, I probably will not have a replacement!

  • (That said... I am a parent and totally realize things come up at the last minute - I have always refunded even last minute cancellations.  I just want people to realize the planning and work that goes into a tour, and the fact that I most likely declined jobs, set up childcare, etc. when I accepted a tour!)
