About the Author

Rick Steves has spent 100 days every year since 1973 exploring Europe. Rick produces a public television series '(Rick Steves' Europe)', a public radio show '(Travel with Rick Steves),' and an app and podcast '(Rick Steves Audio Europe);' writes a bestselling series of guidebooks and a nationally syndicated newspaper column; organizes guided tours that take thousands of travelers to Europe annually; and offers an information-packed website (RickSteves.com). With the help of his hardworking staff of 80 at Europe Through the Back Door-in Edmonds, Washington, just north of Seattle-Rick's mission is to make European travel fun, affordable, and culturally broadening for Americans.

Steve Smith manages tour planning for Rick Steves' Europe Through the Back Door and has been researching guidebooks with Rick for two decades. Fluent in French, he's lived in France on several occasions, starting when he was seven, and has traveled there annually since 1986. Steve's wife, who is an expert on French cuisine and wine, provides invaluable contributions to his books, as do his two children.

Gene Openshaw is a writer, composer, tour guide, and lecturer on art and history. Specializing in writing walking tours of Europe's cultural sights, Gene has coauthored eight of Rick's books and contributes to Rick's public television series. As a composer, Gene has written a full-length opera '(Matter),' a violin sonata, and dozens of songs. He lives near Seattle with his daughter, and roots for the Mariners in good times and bad.

Rick Steves has long been my favourite travel writer. His books and television series are always informative, insightful, and easy to follow. He makes travel seem possible, and that is why I chose to purchase his Paris 2013 guide. I recently spent 5 weeks living in Paris, as a student learning French. In my free time, I travelled. This book was my constant companion and personal guide. The book returned to Canada with me rather worse for wear, but it never lead me wrong when I was abroad.

My favourite part of Rick's books are his self-guided walks. For Paris, these walks give amazing insight into local Paris, but also highlight the best of sites, great cafes, and excellent sightseeing possibilities. I recommend this book to any traveller; Rick will never lead you wrong. I discovered hidden gems, small museums, great street food, and unique shops.

A good accurate guide to the city of Paris. It had good details on the famous sites in Paris. I used it on my trip to Paris two weeks ago.
