Paris, Venice & Florence Walking Tours

Hello. I have found some awesome walking tours in Rome, however I'm looking for walking tours in Paris. Do you know of a company who provides these tours? Thanks

Paris Walks does very good tours (2 hours). I've taken 6 or 7 of them including a half day bus tour to Vaux. Here's their URL.

In Venice I tood the Amex walking tour but wasn't impressed with it. Probably because the group had both English and French speaking people and the guide had to do the same talk in 2 languages.

Here's a few of URLs for Venice and Florence. I haven't used their services so I can't comment. I do know that Venicescapes is pricey. Firenze Antica is affiliated with Scala Reale.

For a change of pace in Paris, you might try Mike's Bike Tours. They leave from near the Eiffel Tower for tours of the downtown.

Their nighttime ride was my favorite part of visiting Paris.

We took Mike's Bike Tours in Munich and loved it-Can't vouch for their Paris tour was it was very fun in Munich and not very taxing.

Sometimes the tourist offices offer walking tours. I have used their services in France and Switzerland. Wonder if the Venice office offers walking tours?
