My cousins and I had a great experience with Lucien. His knowledge of Paris is very broad. We covered everything from monuments and gardens, to street art. This was by far one of our best experiences while in Paris. This tour is a must do.

Lucien is a wonderful tour guide, he loves history and pointed out many points of interest in the left bank. He look us to the Sorbonne, pointed out interesting traits about some churches and gave us an interesting experience. We enjoyed and recommend Lucien.

This was our first trip to Paris. Emilie was amazing!! We covered way
more ground than we could have on our own (7.4 miles to be exact!) -
all while learning so much. Highly recommend seeing Le Marais through
her eyes. You won't be disappointed. Emilie is friendly, engaging,
and truly customizes the day. No question was dumb, no request too
hard. We highly recommend Emilie!!

Lucien is an excellent tour guide! My family and I (2 adults and 3 children aged 14 to 10 year-old) booked 2 tours with Lucien:

1)”Skip the queue visit of the Louvre'”
Lucien pre-booked tickets for us at short notice and in a very busy time of the year. It was extremely easy dealing with him to make arrangements via the app and he always
responded immediately. On the day we enjoyed not only all the knowledge he shared with us but the fact that he tailored the tour for the needs of the children. We visited the medieval walls underneath the museum, a part that we wouldn't have necessary have seen otherwise. The highlights he selected for us were spot on and he
managed to gave us insights of art history spanning form the classical period to modern art. All was easy to appreciate. The visit to the Louvre would have been completely different without his expertise.

2) “Origins and history of Paris”. Lucien took us on a wonderful trip to the past. We discovered traces of Romen Paris and looked at streets and buildings in a different light. My children could follow his explanations easily and related to what they had learnt in school.

He is knowledgable, enthusiastic and well organised and he made our first trip to Paris the most special!

Anna was a great companion and gave me a lovely tour of Paris. Despite the rainy day, we saw so many of the smaller sights that I was looking forward to and I thoroughly enjoyed the stories Anna shared about each one, the history, current events and little anecdotes that really made the experience for me.

We were on our first trip to Paris and Bibiana was a friendly, helpful guide. She explained Parisian customs and history as we walked, stopping along the way to point out highlights. We felt comfortable instantly instead of that deer-in-headlights feel of a new city. And she took the best photos of us as a couple that we’ve had all week! Highly recommend this tour—3 hours, perfect amount of time!

Bibiana is a cheerful person with a strong personality and very well
prepared and knowledgeable about Paris history and surroundings. For a
short period of time that we share with her, we were really impressed.
We really want to be back in Paris and have her with us. We highly
recommend Bibiana as a one of the best tour guide that I ever met. She
was puntual and help us even with our departure to the airport. If you
want to be happy and laughing all the time and have a wonderful time,
you deserve her as your tour guide.

My daughter and I had the pleasure of having Louis as our guide for a three hour walking tour in Paris on September 12. Louis was very knowledgeable of all the areas covered and could answer any questions we had. As I am a bit older I needed more frequent rest breaks and he
was very accommodating. I would definitely recommend Louis if you are looking for a wonderful tour guide!
