Passion Points: Family
Want to give your little darlings a little Parisian history without them hating you and museums forever? Try Paris Walks, the oldest English-language walking tour in the French capital, with family guides who can actually inspire your kids. My fashion-crazed fourteen-year-old daughter loved hearing about what Marie Antoinette wore and how quickly her hair turned grey when things went downhill. Our amazing guide, Iris Grossman Spencer, says that all kids are different, but generally girls like to hear about the historical equivalent of sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll, while boys want to know about the exciting battles and invasions and tales of beheadings and killing. No surprise there, but it’s amazing how many guides get it wrong, throwing meaningless dates and figures at kids. From $268 (for a half-day) to $470 (for a full day).
