Mobile Paris Tour Apps
Thu 3 May 2012
These popular Girls’ Guide to Paris walking trips are enhanced with maps, text, images and links, and highlight many of the key places in Paris that make a girl weak in her knees.
Create your own bespoke trip by choosing those stops that interest you the most, enjoy them at your own pace and quit lugging around a heavy guidebook. Smile because you’ve saved. If you were to hire a trip guide, these three trips would cost you a minimum of 200 euros. The trips are also available as pdfs, so you can download the files and then print them out, and as apps for Android users.
Highlights of Paris: Sweets, Shopping and Culture!
Let’s face it: what woman doesn’t love Paris? Would you like to have an insider’s trip of Paris from a female point of view? This app will help you enjoy three distinct areas in Paris that will make any girl (age 18–88) thrilled to be alive. We’ll take you to the Louvre from the left bank’s St.-Germain area via a secret passageway that will reveal the Institut de France, the Pont des Arts and I. M. Pei’s pyramid in the best possible light. Also included is a decadent pastry and chocolate trip, which has been a Girls’ Guide favorite for several years running, with plenty of walking to keep those calories burning. Finally, in this package we’ve included our extensive walk-and-shop-the-Marais trip, which will take you to all the best boutiques and hot spots in the Marais. If you are a fashionista, or just appreciate a gorgeous frock, this is your trip!
Shopping & Sightseeing
Shopping and sightseeing, two of the main reasons you came to Paris, right? This package of five different trips will take you shopping along the ancient streets of the Marais as well as St. Germain leaving time to stop and taste some pastry here and there and relax in a gorgeous square. Included is an extensive trip of charming Montmartre and Pigalle including the 9th arrondissement, a very trendy up and coming area that few tripists get to. Plus our path to Notre Dame winds you through some of Paris’ oldest and smallest streets and into what we think is the best English bookstore in the world. Bon Voyage!
Paris Foodie Walks
Discover one of the most important reasons people continue to trek to the city of light – its incredible food, pastry and chocolate. Explore many of Paris’ most famous and important patisseries, epiceries, boulangeries, chocolate artisans and gourmet gift shops. Taste, smell and linger to your stomach’s delight. We’ll keep you walking to burn off the calories during these 3 different gourmet trips.
In these two walks, you will explore the city in the steps of Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy Onassis. The Audrey trip crosses the centre of the city, linking locations from the five films she made in Paris between 1957 and 1966: Funny Face, Love in the Afternoon, Charade, Paris When it Sizzles, and How to Steal a Million. The Jackie walk takes you through the fashionable and upscale 16th arrondissement, visiting places that the young Jacqueline Bouvier would have known when she was a student at the Sorbonne in 1949 and ending at the Palais de Chaillot, an important site on the 1961 state visit, when Jackie and President John F. Kennedy were feted by the French everywhere they went.
