Hello, I am Virginia Dae, the founder of Paris Insight. I have been creating and leading my walks for private individuals & small groups since 1996.

Why choose Paris Insight?

Paris Insight is the “fruit” of a lifetime, a vibrant love affair with Paris. My walks immerse you in “1000 shades” of magical atmosphere. They weave together all the ingredients composing the charm of the City of Light. For the last 25 years Paris Insight has been the only company meeting the challenge of tours conceived on given themes. All my tours are tailored to match your own uniqueness.

What they say about me

I like to take a half-day walking tour when I get to a new city and the one that stands out is the Paris walks with Virginia Dae, who runs Paris Insight. She is a wonderful guide and her theme walks give you a great feel for life in the city and its illustrious past, as well as present-day realities.

Find another way to discover Paris

There is no end to what Paris Insight can offer you.

Follow in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway, Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, Paul Gauguin, Delacroix, Marc Chagall, Amadeo Modigliani and many others. Paris Insight will guide you to the places where they gathered and which they immortalized in their works. Find out where episodes of Victor Hugo’s novel Les Misérables took place. Bring the revolutionary Paris of 1830 to light. Stroll through the typical open street markets, full of life and color. Discover new worlds as you slip silently into mysterious courtyards that Paris preserves so carefully.

The Beginner’s Tour is ideal for new visitors. The combination of two tours (Marais - Saint Germain) will put an end to the confusion lots of visitors have between the Right and Left Bank.

You are unique. My tours are as unique as you.
