Paris Walkers United
Local tour guide in France
My name is Rebecca Lyne and I am an American expat now living in Paris for over eight years. I have been conducting a variety of walking tours and walking excursions for avid walkers, tourists and international locals in Paris and beyond for six years.
Paris Walkers United is for anyone and everyone interested ...(read more)in walking for pleasure and lifelong fitness. And meeting some nice people in the process.
Our walks combine 3 primary things.
Paris - We explore areas and routes in Paris one normally would not find in a guide book. Our walks are designed to walk thru the well know, the lesser known and the unknown!
Exercise - We walk at least 10-15 kilometers on each and every walk! You WILL see Paris and get fit at the same time! We are increasingly offering walks of 20-30+kilometers for those who want a bigger challenge.
People- You will meet local and international walkers in a unique social and leisure experience.
Paris Walkers United offers Sunday strolls of typically 2
meeting fellow travel and walking enthusiasts.
I have traveled to
France, England, Scotland, Wales, Republic of Ireland, most of continental Europe, Israel, United Arab Emirates...

Hello Fellow Walkers, For those of you who want to experience Paris on foot,this walk is for you! This route will take you through Paris from tip to toe! Please note, that this experience is a group walk that passes through Paris' varied quartiers and tourist areas, however it is not a tour as such and therefore does not include structured commentary. For this walk we will start just outside of Paris to the North East in Pantin at Metro Hoche. We will then work our way toward the paved chemin that hugs the northern canal area in the 19th and Parc de la Villette. It is really a perfect walkers space! From there, I will lead you and your group along the Seine through the picturesque Canal St. Martin area and onward to the Ile de la Cite area. The really brave walkers can enjoy an extended walk to the Eiffel Tower folloed by brunch. Let me know your preference. We can customize this walk according to your schedule and interests. This walk covers between 10 and 20 kilometers depending on your desires. This walk is not recommended for children, casual walkers or those with health conditions. Please check with your doctor.
Our second in a series of walks dedicated to artists continues...this is a day-walk that will take us to the lovely hamlet of Auvers-sur-Oise... the last town Vincent Van Gogh lived in,where he painted feverishly and where he died. This is a great day out! This day begins at the Gare St. Lazare where we will take the Transilien train line to the town of Pontoise. Here, we will enjoy strolling directly through Pontoise to the green trail designed to take us directly into the heart of Auvers-sur-Oise...this is a walk o about 1.5 - 2 Hours. Be sure to wear waterproof and skid resistant shoes as we could come across some mud. We will take in several key Van Gogh sites including his garret room where he spent his final month, the fields he painted and even his final resting place. Other optional visits include the absynth museum, Dr.Gachet's home and others. And of course a taste of Absynth for the curious... Please be at the gare by no later than 8:05 to collect tickets and m
