Paris at Night - Jill was an incredible tour guide. She listened to us and catered to our desires to visit the places we wanted to see. We know we were able to see more of the city than we ever would have on our own. We’ve not stopped talking about it and would recommend the personal guided to the everyone visiting who wants to vote a lot of ground in a short time. Thank you Jill!!

Christmas Market La Defense - It was great visiting the Christmas Market at La Defense. There are so many stalls to stop at We brought chocolates, soap, and my wife brought a change purse Del our guide was amazing, as she walked us through, allowing time to stop Enjoyed a cup of hot wine. Allowed my wife time to do some shopping. This tour allows one to plan their own agenda.

I had a great time seeing... - I had a great time seeing Paris during the holiday season with Daniel. We saw all the highlights and he took me to some hidden gems he knew I'd like to see. Had a blast during the 3 hours. Great guide.

Great guide! - We had a wonderful time on our tour!! Our guide was so kind, knowledgeable and considerate. She made sure we got to all the top sites but that our kiddos had time to rest and see things that interested them. I’d definitely use them again!!!

Best $$$ spent on a tour! - Maria was the perfect tour guide. I have been to Paris a few times so this trip I wanted to see things I hadn't seen before and places most tourists aren't visiting. I also came during the Christmas season to see the decorations. She took me to so many interesting places and really listened to my interests. I wish she could be my tour guide for all the days of my visit.
