A unique way to fall in love with Paris!

Set in Paris was founded by Abigail de Bruyne to share her love for Paris and to highlight the wealth of films that celebrate, and have become part of the very fabric, of the city.

We propose different movie locations tours in Paris as well as fun, themed tours about more specific personalities like Coco Chanel, James Bond, Amélie Poulain, Gossip Girl or Sex and the City.

You can choose between different kind of tours : walking tours for individuals or groups, bike tours for sports enthusiasts who wants to see more, bus tours for big groups who want to discover all Paris. And a special tour in our vintage car for a more intimate and personalized luxury tour.

Our HQ is on the left bank just behind Notre Dame.  We run a souvenir store and cafeé where we’ve meticulously selected every product to create our dream store where you’ll find quality and unique souvenirs! From fine food & teas, berets, candles, soaps, jewellery, stationery, children’s toys…..you’re sure to find the perfect momento of your trip. Here you will find brands that range from up-and-coming creators as well as traditional French companies, such as Nina’s, Merci Louis, la Compagnie de Provence, le Château d’Estoublon, Maxim’s, etc.

As a start up, we are lucky enough to have passionate wonderful people around us that go to great lengths to help us build a caring and fun company.

From Abigail’s mum Leila who is our in-house artist, Tsil & Pam who have generously photographed our tours, Matthew our first intern who helped us move into our first office and plan a cool opening party, Fabien who gave us direction, James who gave us marketing advice, Magdelena & Amber who gave us inspiration, Anelisa & Anissa who got us super organised, Carlie who helped us start awesome partnerships, Maggie, Dara and Alice who wrote great blog articles, Colter who filmed the video above and Alison who edited lots more.  And to all the wonderful tour guides and interns that have come and gone but will always have a place at Set in Paris

To all our wonderful Parisian neighbours in the Latin Quarter who encourage us and give us tips on how to navigate working in Paris, most notably Pauline who is our Parisian-style inspiration (and Léo’s mother), Wilfred at L’Oie Qui Fume, Awsa at Bar Onze and Stephan at Freescoot for all their time and advice we’d be lost without.
