Exploring Paris

Description: Join a congenial group for guided tours, walks and museum visits with the very knowledgeable and amusing guide Claude Rocca. You will learn more than you probably want to know or could possibly retain about this wonderful city and its many museums.  

Place: At or near the place of the visit. See the newsletter. 

Date/Time: September to June, monthly, on a Thursday morning.

Cost: Payment  by cheque to ALORA. Tour cost excluding entry fees

In order to cover the guide fees, we need at least 15 participants to enrol for at least six of the ten scheduled visits. Not only will this ensure that the group will be able to pay the guide’s fees in their entirety but it will also allow members to forego some of the visits without too many regrets while they are travelling.

10 visits 125€
6 visits 75€
Individual visits 14€
Non-ALORA members /guests 17€ each visit




Coordinator: Contact and enrolment before each visit: Leslie White.

To Enrol: Send your payment by cheque (made out to ALORA) to the ALORA office, as soon as possible. Groups limited to 25, so be sure to enrol early.
