private tour of PARIS WITH A FRIENDly expert

Imagine discovering Paris with a local friend — someone who shows you hidden spots, tells funny stories, and explains the ‘why’ behind the what. A friend who makes you feel great about Paris. And what if this friend came with a professional guiding license, a Master’s degree, and a skip-the-line access everywhere? 
That would be your private tour of Paris with City Smart Way.
