Welcome to The Tourist in Paris

Arrière plan Tour Eiffel The Tourist in Paris

We are a digital platform in English and in French dedicated to repeat visitors in Paris seeking for a local and personalised experience.

The Tourist in Paris?

It is a website in two languages dedicated to giving foreign tourists international and local news as well as what’s best to do in Paris during their stay in the City of Lights. Our daily Paris tips (with our sections where to go, what to see, where to eat, where to drink, what to do, where to party), are specific to where they’re from and who they are in order to give them the best Parisian experience and discover Paris like a local. In addition, we have created a “Mood” page in order for you to decide what you want to do depending on the mood of the day.

Our Mission

Paris has failed to rejuvenate its touristic infrastructures and lives on the remaining ashes of a bygone era. In brief, tourism in Paris has lived off his own gains. Most visitors complain of how poorly they are welcome by Parisians. Our mission is to boost the quality of tourism in one of the most visited cities in the world. Make sure foreign visitors take a closer and better look at what our city has best to offer. And finally, become an influencer of the most authentic Paris places, events and businesses.

The Founders

The Tourist in Paris SAS is a startup which was founded on January, 2014 by three Parisians: Alexandre de Villeneuve, a 30 year-old entrepreneur and business manager of this company and Bertrand de Volontat, a 30 year-old journalist, editor of this website and entrepreneur.

The Tourist in Paris will be published in ten languages: Français, English (US/UK), Deutsche, Español, Italiano, Português, Pу́сский, 英汉词典, 英和辞書, قاموس إنجليزي – عربي.
