What's in our tour?

Want to inject a bit of fun into your holiday? Looking for ways to wind down after a long day of touring?

“Boules & Wine” is a nice, fun way to relax. Boules is very popular with Parisians because everyone has a chance to win. And wine is a nice plus.

Your boules instructor meets you on Paris’ oldest bridge, Pont-Neuf. The instructor helps you into an invisible Parisian paradise: Place Dauphine.

It takes the instructor but 2 minutes to show you the basics of “boules” – the steel balls also known as “pétanque”. The game can start.

You choose your strategy. You can score, you can block the other team. But for everyone, experience is not so important. You need self-control – and a bit of luck.

The instructor will slip good tips, and show some tricks. She will also tell the history of the game. And the fun ways you can win.

As Parisians say: the important thing here is to play, not to win. Of course, the instructor will bring some drinks and French snakes, it’s also part of the game.

At the end, well… everyone feels they’ve won! And that’s what boules & wine is all about.

Come as you are. Wear comfortable shoes if you’d like. We provide the rest.
