Beginning from the Louvre, we will walk the literary trail that spans a thousand years of Western thought, from the gothic quads of Aquinas, and Descartes, to the haunts of Voltaire, Robespierre, Napoleon and the philosophes who gave rise to revolution and the modern world. From the haunts of Picasso and Hemingway, Pound and Fitzgerald, to the existentialist cafes of Sartre and de Beauvoir, Camus and Beckett, to the publishing house that cultivated the likes of Hemingway,Joyce and the Beat Generation, we will bring to life the art and architecture, philosophy and words of modernity, as we imbibe drinks, words and the spirit of philosophers, artists, writers and poets that made Paris a singular 'moveable feast', and made for Western civilization in all its beauty, errors and promise.

I am a professor of law and philosophy, with a passion for art and architecture, history and politics, and philosophy and literature in all its forms. As an expat from New York City, with an especial love for Paris, and French culture, I look forward to imparting a love for this most romantic, beautiful and intriguing city, as we walk the paths of philosophes and modernists, of theologians and existentialists, indeed, as we explore the lives of literary and philosophical minds who made this City of Lights their own, from every corner of the world, and who in turn made our world.

From the gothic quads of the Louvre, we will head to the Left Bank, seeking the medieval spirit of Aquinas, and haunts that bred the French Revolution, beginning with Le Procope. And then on to Jardin du Luxembourg and cafes Closerie, Le Dome and de Flore, imagining Hemingway's Lost Generation and Sartre's Existentialists, in contemplating art and existence, before losing ourselves among the ghosts of Shakespeare & Co, and ruins of Notre Dame.

I loved this experience! Probably my favorite one in Paris! John was very knowledgeable about the topic(s). First he showed us around different places in the city, telling us about their history and significance, later we sat down in a café and had a philosophical discussion about Habermas’, Rawls’ and other philosophers’ ideas on politics. Although I’m not at all an expert on this topic or philosophy in general (don’t know many names or works) it was easy for me to engage in the discussion and learn new things. But most importantly, I actually had fun! John is a super nice and helpful guy and even told me I could write him if I had any questions about studying in Paris.

When we sat down in the café les deux magots, and discussed current philosophy, i, as a current student of philosophy felt as if Simone de Beauvoir could have sit down besides us and joined the discussion. We dived deep into the area, its characters and thoughts and i felt very much enriched.

Sadly this tour was very disappointing. It lacked structure and felt like we were randomly wandering around with out any context or stories of what occurred at any of the places we stopped. I left feeling that I had just wasted two hours of my time. Also it should be noted that any coffees, etc are at your own expense and not included. The description of the tour is not very clear on this. This is perfectly fine but should be more clear in the description.

While Chris is an enthusiastic and energetic guide with a wicked sense of New York humour, his somewhat casual and flippant attitude towards his task may turn off those who wish for a more serious and deeper engagement.

John shares a genuine love for art, literature, philosophy and history on his whirlwind tour of Paris. He has a great knowledge of the traditional intellectual history of Paris that he takes an extra step further by infusing with his own unique discoveries and ideas. Definitely an unforgettable, unique experience.

I really enjoyed viewing the literary must-sees of Paris with John! I definitely wouldn't have seen the different locations (some churches, bars, cafes, restaurants, parks, and book stores!) had I not gone on this tour!
