Jean-Charles met us at our hotel on our first day in Paris, and took us on a wonderful orientation run around Paris. He was very informative, and shared some fascinating historical details along the route. He also took many photos, which he later dropboxed to us on the very same day. It was a pleasure running with Jean-Charles, and we are happy to recommend him and give him the 5 stars he deserves!

The Paris Running Tour enabled us to tick a few boxes on a short holiday in Paris. Jean-Charles provided us with interesting and relevant facts about Paris while we had a relaxing run, plus we also managed to gain an understanding of the layout of Paris. We highly recommend!!

This was one of the best runs I’ve done in 25 years of running…what a fabulous way to see Paris. Jean Charles is not only knowledgeable about Parisian history and culture, he is so warm and he adjusted the route once he learned a little about me and my interests (taking me to literary sites when I mentioned I used to teach literature) etc. I was afraid he would be too fast for me, but he kept easily to my pace and showed me a mix of historic buildings and monuments as well as beautiful gardens and natural areas. We ran over 12 miles together, and the time flew by. He also carried water, snacks and even a rain coat, all for me if I asked. He took MANY photos, and I am sure that some of these will be framed in my home. Wonderful tour. He also provided me with maps and a description with links to the sites we saw. Can’t recommend this tour or Jean Charles highly enough. ! FIVE STARS

Wonderful early morning run with Jean-Charles, combined with interesting small details about Paris and the sights themselves. Jean-Charles also provided water and was very caring throughout the whole run.

We scheduled the 9mile run around Paris and had such a great time. Jean-Charles created a personalized tour that brought us to many well known landmarks as well as beautiful historic spots that aren’t well traveled. He provided many museum and activity recommendations and took our pictures wherever we wanted. We also had great conversation about races around the world. Great time and would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
