You will be pleasantly surprised by this quiet city that is worth a visit… and deserves the return! As Jules Verne wrote to one of his friends: “On my wife’s desire, I settle in Amiens, a wise city, polite in an equal mood. We are near Paris, enough to have the reflection, without the unbearable noise and sterile agitation.”

What do our visitors say after a walk on Amiens with a greeter


“Visit of Amiens corresponding to our requests (stories and legends of the city, facades of the city). Visit documented. Michèle made this visit a pleasant exchange. The historic visit was punctuated by anecdoctes. We were delighted with his intervention, which gave us the keys to the history of Amiens and its richness.”

“Our day with Alix in Amiens was very fun. Sometimes communication was a bit of a challenge, but we managed to make ourselves understood on both sides. We saw and learned of things we would not have had we been on our own. Alix put in a lot of effort to be sure that we learned as much as possible about Amiens. We would recommend this program to anyone who visits.”

“Emmanuelle was enthusiastic about Amiens, had excellent English and kindly offered to escort us to our next appointment. She is delightful company.”
