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.

This was my first but not my last visit to Paris. We had booked the walk for our arrival day and everything went well with the help of an employee of the app to be installed. The walk is a wonderful introduction to walking this wonderful city from the Louvre to Notre Dame with little stories. I give four stars because the English lyrics are spoken very quickly. We really enjoyed the walk.

My second visit to the Rewind app which I loved once again! From the Louvre to Notre Dame de Paris via the banks of the Seine, the FR voice of Bruce Willis told me great stories and anecdotes about Paris. All from my smartphone! A visit that I was able to do at my own pace: I was able to stop and resume the visit whenever I wanted. Great concept!!

Awesome experience! I was able to discover the stories of magnificent places like the Louvre, the banks of the Seine, Place Dauphine or even Notre-Dame de Paris. The voice of a professional & fascinating guide guided me throughout the visit, from my smartphone. The stories are very well told. In fact, you feel like you're listening to a passionate friend... What makes the experience unique: all the stories and directions automatically trigger in the right place, at the right time. And also, I was able to take the tour at the time I wanted and at my own pace. I highly recommend to all those who, like me, want to discover Paris independently
