When booking my trip to Paris some 5 months ago, I focused my activities around going on this walking tour. Despite running a few minutes late, the tour guide was still at the meeting point and greeted us promptly. At each stop our guide gave us plenty of information about what the site was and what the historical context/importance of the stop was without being too convoluted. Whilst at a stop at Place de la Concode, she pointed out that whilst the square today does not have any obvious markers of its violent role during the Revolution, there is a subtle homage to the guillotine if you look very closely and your guide happens to point it out!! Overall, very pleased with this walking tour and I would wholeheartedly recommend if you have an interest in history.
