Free guided tours


Babylangues offers you the chance to visit a part of Paris in the company of a welcoming, enthusiastic guide who is in love with the city!

Just like a friend taking you on a walk, your guide will share with you their experiences, some useful addresses and a few anecdotes along the way. As well as learning about the area’s history, architecture and culture, you will be encouraged to soak up the atmosphere and explore Paris for yourself. The hope is that you will not only make the most of the city but also make it your own.


“I had a fantastic time! The tour was really interesting and Chiara was very informative. I feel that I learnt a lot which I wouldn’t have found in a guidebook, and it was nice to chat with the others about being an expat in Paris.

I look forward to going on another tour soon!”

– Deanna, a Babylangues Instructor in Paris


This month our guided tour will be taking place around the winding streets of Le Marais. The area spans the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, sprawling all the way from the back of the Centre Pompidou up to Place de la Bastille and is one of Paris’ most historic neighbourhoods.

Once a marsh area of swamp and traditionally the Jewish quartier of Paris, today the Marais is a buzzing cultural hub of seemingly endless bars, restaurants and boutique shops. Unlike the wide-open avenues and Haussmanian architecture that can be found in other parts of the city, the streets in Le Marais are narrow, bustling and adorned with interesting street art! Here, you will also find a whole host of galleries and museums, such as the Musée Picasso and the Musée des Arts et Métiers. Victor Hugo was once a resident of this neighbourhood and wrote ‘Les Misérables’ in his apartment overlooking the Place des Vosges, a beautiful tree-lined square in the very heart of Le Marais.

Why not come and explore the area with us, as we delve into its past and learn more about its rich cultural history?

Your guide for the afternoon will be Gilles.


Saturday 25th November at 2pm (lasting until 5pm).


The meeting point will be outside metro stop ‘Saint Paul’.

I loved it. The guide was really knowledgeable and didn’t shy away from the darker aspects of French history, which was spooky and exciting. He inspired us to go on more tours.” Lou Marie

The tour was fantastic. It was very cool to hear the history of the Latin quarter. He knew some very obscure facts that I would have never learned on my own. Thanks for setting it up!” Lucie
