Your teens will step up and take the lead on our Historic Heart of Paris Walk for Teens, an ideal introduction to the city for families with teens aged 13 and up. We developed this program to motivate teens to meaningfully engage with the architectural details of the city’s central neighborhoods.
Your family will decode the mysterious symbols of Paris’ oldest clock, find a hidden sundial designed by Salvador Dalí, and learn what is “flamboyant” about some of the city’s Gothic buildings. Interactive observation activities will teach your teen the city’s history, an epic story that is visible everywhere in Paris, if you know where to look.
This 2.5-hour walk covers major landmarks including Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sorbonne University, and the medieval Hôtel de Cluny, as well as detours beyond the typical tourist trails. You and your family’s private guide will explore 2,000 years of Parisian history in what is truly the city’s historic heart—the Île de la Cité, the Latin Quarter, and Saint Michel neighborhoods. You’ll hear the stories of the peoples who helped make Paris the city it is today, from ancient Roman settlers to Revolutionaries to WWII Resistance fighters.

Perfect for our Family
When my wife and I decided to go to France for our family vacation, we knew we would have to find ways to keep our teenage daughters involved. After a lot of research, I found Paris Muse. Let me just say that both the tour and Stephanie were perfect! We spent time learning about historic Paris, including…Notre Dame, the Ile de la Cite, Shakespeare and Company, the Sorbonne, and much, much more. Stephanie was fantastic at engaging our daughters and making sure that they enjoyed the tour, learned about the city, and were interested and excited. I highly recommend this tour for families with teenagers.

Best way to experience Paris
We did the Louvre Quest and the Teen Historic Walking Tour with our 13- and 8-year olds and both tours exceeded our expectations. Vanessa was our guide and she was such a font of information. She made each step fascinating. These tours ended up being the highlight of our trip. Can't recommend highly enough.
