....PARIS AUDIO TOURS.......................

 

 

The World's Best Historians.

LetThemTalk.com approached France's foremost historians to help us record our Paris audio tours. Unfortunately they all told us to go away (although those weren't their precise words) but never mind help was at hand. We stumbled across David and Miyuki drinking cafes noisettes at a corner cafe who, having nothing much else on that afternoon, ventured out along with Gideon to discover Paris and transcribe its history.

 
 

It's The Talk of Paris

These Paris walking tours are aimed at tourists and anybody who has an interest in the history of Paris. Each tour lasts about 20 minutes and is in MP3 format. If you are in Paris the best was to listen is to download to your ipod or MP3 player print out the route map and follow the tour.
