Full description
Uncover the mysteries and legends of Paris on this audio-guided walking tour. With your smartphone in your pocket, follow your professional and passionate guide’s commentary as you explore the historical landmarks of the city. Begin the tour in front of the Arc du Carrousel, right by the Louvre Museum. Discover how the Louvre and the Tuileries Garden got their name as well as all their disturbing ghost stories. Get to know Belphégor, the indiscreet ghost of the Louvre, and find out why the Pyramid of the Louvre has been the subject of so many conspiracy stories, including in Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. Why did an Italian worker steal the Mona Lisa at the beginning of the 20th century? And what is the longest work of art in Paris? These questions and more will be answered as you go. Cross the Cour Carrée and the Pont des Arts to admire one of the most beautiful views of Paris. Then, on Ile de la Cité, discover the secret history of the Order of the Templars, the former state prison, and the antechamber of the guillotine. Take the tour at your own pace and make stops along the way as you desire. Simply pause the app then kick off again where you left off. Clear audio directions, a map, and an integrated geo-localization feature ensure you can focus on enjoying your tour without the fear of getting lost.

Dies war mein erster aber nicht mein letzter Besuch in Paris. Wir hatten den Spaziergang für unseren Ankunftstag gebucht und alles hat gut geklappt mit Hilfe eines Mitarbeiters der zu installierenden App. Der Spaziergang ist ein wunderbarer Einstieg, um mit kleinen Geschichten diese wundervolle Stadt vom Louvre zur Notre Dame zugehen. Ich gebe vier Sterne da die englischen Texte sehr schnell gesprochen sind. Wir haben den Spaziergang sehr genossen.

Ma deuxième visite sur l'appli Rewind que j'ai adorée une nouvelle fois ! Du Louvre à Notre Dame de Paris en passant par les quais de Seine, la voix FR de Bruce Willis m'a raconté de super histoires et anecdotes sur Paris. Le tout depuis mon smartphone ! Une visite que j'ai pu faire à mon rythme : j'ai pu m'arrêter et reprendre la visite quand je le voulais. Super concept !!

Expérience géniale ! J’ai pu découvrir les histoires de lieux magnifiques comme Le Louvre, les bords de Seine, la place Dauphine ou encore Notre-Dame de Paris. La voix d’un guide professionnel & passionnant m’a guidé tout le long de la visite, depuis mon smartphone. Les histoires sont très bien racontées. En fait, vous avez l’impression d’écouter un ami passionné... Ce qui rend l’expérience unique : toutes les histoires et directions se déclenchent automatiquement au bon endroit, au bon moment. Et aussi, j’ai pu faire la visite à l’heure que je souhaitais et à mon rythme. Je recommande vivement à tous ceux qui, comme moi, veulent découvrir Paris en toute autonomie
