TheWaysBeyond was born out of a passion: the passion to share the things which touch us in a city we did not grow up in, but we fell in love with as soon as we went beyond its clichés.
Paris is now our city and we would like to share it with those who are as curious as we are, those who wish to live it and love it the way we do.
Here is how we aim to do so, based on four beliefs.
Here is TheWaysBeyond’s Manifesto for Paris.
(1) One Ingredient, Infinite Possibilities – Culture, Emotions
A fertile ground for inspiration, Culture connects us all. As a source of emotions, it breaks down barriers and provokes reactions that can easily be shared. These Emotions transcend language and age: they are an unforgettable force with the power to change lives.
(2) Two Keywords – Excellence & Exchange
Unlike the term Luxury, which is today all too often equated with bad taste or division between the richest and the rest of the population, Excellence is not an insult to poverty, but to mediocrity. For this reason, we only use the term Excellence to describe the quality of the people and arts you will meet during our experiences.
But a simple meeting is not enough if you cannot discuss and share. This is why we see Exchange – in small groups – as the only way to learn and empower, and as the sole condition to inspire.
(3) Go With the Slow
Like in many other cities, Paris’s highlights are flooded with tourists. But we stand for another form of tourism, a Slow Tourism that is respectful of the local environment – whether natural, cultural or human –, working directly with local actors who can, in turn, also benefit from a mutually enriching interaction with curious minds.
(4) Let Us Show You the Ways
We cannot sell you a result, an original adventure, or paradise – but we can guide you with enthusiasm. Authenticity is invaluable, and this is our way of helping you discover the unexpected – of living your own unique experience of Paris.
>> OUR COMMITMENT TO RESPONSIBLE TOURISM
TheWaysBeyond is committed to enlightened tourism, one that is conscious of its impact on the city. We advocate for a better understanding of culture in France and support a more responsible society in a preserved natural and social environment, with sound and transparent business relationships – a policy that we pursue by raising awareness among partners and travellers alike.
