''Run like a local''

TripAdvisor Review written on December 2016 by Kevin (USA)

Amazing way to see Paris. Jean was a great guide, proud resident of Paris and happy to share his city with tourists. As a solo traveler, I especially liked that he took a lot of pictures and shared them easily on dropbox! Highly recommended!

''Great way to see Paris!''

TripAdvisor Review written on October 2016 by Kathleen (Australia)

My run was with Jean-Charles. I felt comfortable with him straightaway. The tour took us from Gare de Lyon to the Place de la Concorde, passing a lot of well-known sights (but also including some I didn’t know of, or hadn’t seen before). […] I highly recommend Paris Running Tours and hope to do another tour myself next time I’m in Paris.

''Excellent running tour, with great historic information and an excellent guide''

TripAdvisor Review written on October 2016 by Zac (USA)

My fiancee and I did an amazing 10+ mile (16+ km) guided running tour of Paris with Sylvain. The tour was excellent in every regard: Sylvain was very pleasant, knowledgeable and passionate about both Paris and running. […] Overall, if you want an active take on Paris, we couldn’t recommend Paris Running Tours highly enough.

''Surprise tour''

TripAdvisor Review written on April 2017 by Linda (USA)

Went to Paris and Amsterdam for my husbands birthday. I planned our 9 mile running tour with out telling my husband til the last minute. Jean-Charles was our guide and I have to say this was the most fun I have ever had on a tour. We learn so much about Paris, the miles flew by. Jean-Charles was such a easy person to talk too, he even researched a question I had about the country side and emailed later the answer. I would love to run again the next time I come! Oh and the photos he took of us were wonderful. By far the most memorable part of my vacation

 

''What joy!''

TripAdvisor Review written on Mars 2015 by Nicole (USA)

I ran on four mornings during my short stay in Paris. Three of the runs were conducted by Flavien (~ 27 yrs old), and one was conducted by Jean-Charles (a youthful ~ 50 yrs old?). All four runs took me to very different neighborhoods in and around Paris. At first, I hesitated before committing to this somewhat extravagant treat…But, boy, was it worth it!!
[…]
Thank you again to both of you for showing me a different side to Paris!

''THE way to discover Paris''

TripAdvisor Review written on July 2016 by Kathrine (Denmark)

Jean-Charles took us for a 9 km run through streets, passages, parks, bridges and even buildings of Paris. We enjoyed it immensely, especially the small details about the city and landmarks where you can still see and feel the long and diverse history of the country.We have tried running tours before, and this is definitely not our last!

''An awesome experience!''

TripAdvisor Review written on August 2015 by Lauren (USA)

I thoroughly enjoyed my running tour with Jean-Charles! I selected the long tour and I got more than I expected, which was great! I got to see so many different parts of the city and sites during our 10+miles. It was also a great way to plan the rest of my trip. Jean-Charles ran at my speed (slow) and we paused to chat about the sites. Loved that he captured photos of the journey. He also had a map of our trip plotted for me. Highly recommend Paris Running Tours!
