Paris Walking Tours presented by professional performers
Published on 26 June 2013 in Visit Paris
Paris Walking Tours are not a new phenomenon, but never before have they been done like this. The Visites Spectacles are walking tours with a difference, because they are presented by professional performers; actors, comedians, musicians, even magicians and acrobats. This is a splendid new concept of interactive, educational street theatre based on the true life, culture and history of Paris. Les Plumes Hotel is pleased to recommend this innovative concept.
Paris Walking Tours : a new way of understanding History
The streets and buildings become their backdrop and the timeless city their stage as the performers use drama and comedy to bring their narratives vividly to life. Paris Walking Tours are a heady blending of guided tour, historical recreation, and sheer entertainment in which you can be both spectator and participant, too. Each tour lasts an hour and a half and is suitable for the whole family.
There are three tour narratives, two of which are currently available in English language versions. The Romance of the Eiffel Tower tells the story of this iconic Paris landmark by way of a love story concerning an American lady and a handsome French aviator, a tale guaranteed to touch the heart. The Spirit of Montmartre takes us back to the Belle Epoque era of the famous Paris hill. The heady days of Picasso, Renoir, the Moulin Rouge, Le Chat Noir, Symbolists, Decadents, Art Nouveau and absinthe are brought to life in enthralling fashion. The Riddle of the Covered Arcades is only available in French at the moment. This tells the secrets of the Grands Boulevards indoor galleries through the unravelling of a murder mystery which you can help to solve.
