Round Paris with a homeless guide

There has been a rise of popularity of tours with unusual guides since recently in Paris: instead of professionals you can walk around the French capital in the company of a homeless person.

The main reason of interest to such excursions is possibly the immersion into a different Paris, with secret gardens and parks, small streets with beautiful houses, historic buildings which are not marked in guides.

At this moment Paris tours with homeless guides are available in the 18th arrondissement. From September the 20th district will be added to the routs of the excursions.

There is no a fixed price, tourists decide themselves how much guides should be payed. Usually that’s 5-10 Euros.

The organizer of these tours is Alternative Urbaine.
