Walking Tours Will Never Be The Same Again

Exploring cities will never be the same after you watch this video: walls will no longer be for leaning against, but for springing off; railings will no longer be for assistance, but for sliding down; and terraced flower beds will no longer be for visual pleasure, but for doing backflips off of.

Parkour, a holistic training discipline using movement developed from gymnastics and military obstacle courses, brings a whole new level to city life. From Paris to Delhi, lifestyle guides lead beer, cocktail, food and shopping tours, but what they may not mention is that their cities are also fertile grounds for Parkour enthusiasts. Architectural and Heritage-History tour guides might point out the likes of the Tower of London’s “Traitor’s Gate,” and share the stories behind it, but if they’ve been exposed to the world of Parkour they might also tell you how you can scale part of it and do a blackflip!

Readers, brace yourselves: in just a few moments, walking tours will never be the same again.
