Memorable

I just returned from a brief trip to Paris, and took the opportunity to take two of the four walking tours in this title. I was startled, enlightened, and entranced by the depth and unusual interest of the narration in this tour. It took me to places I'd been and showed me so much more; it took me to new places that I would never have seen in a standard tourist trip. Highlights included the Jewish section of Paris, and the church of St. Julien le Pauvre, across the Seine from Notre Dame. It's a leisurely stroll; you don't walk far in each tour, and there are plenty of opportunities and recommendations for break points to shop or eat. I'll never forget this Paris trip, thanks to this title! A wonderful use for the Audible technology.

Excellent audio commentry

I have been to Paris about twice a year for the past five years as I just love the city and the people. This audio guide is fantastic. I have listened to it a couple of times now and I am not even due to leave for Paris for another three days! There is a drawback though - not in the guide but in the format which it is presented here. You have no clear idea where the walks are going to take you as you lack the important items the "real" guide has if you bought it from a shop - the illustrated maps. This is not a major problem though and I am getting over it by going though the guide once more with a city map to hand so I can note down the routes.

not well advertised

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you know that you are going to the specific neighborhoods they cover you might enjoy this, the history was interesting but as I am not going to these streets and the review doesn't tell you where you are going its not accurately marketed

Has Pariswalks turned you off from other books in this genre?

no, I have always loved travel books

What didn’t you like about Gates McFadden’s performance?

she is excited about her material
