Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I learned about Marina's tours through word of mouth and booked her for 2 days while in Paris with a friend. First tour was the best of Paris and the other was a trip to the Champagne Region. I could not have been more pleased with the tours and the duo team of Marina and her husband Andres.

First of all, Marina's response to your emails for booking the tours is fantastic! She is on top of organizing your visits and is extremely responsive.

Marina was extremely knowledgeable about Paris the city and the Champagne Region; she is amazing! She is a walking history book and her passion for the city and its history is contagious! And her knowledge of champagne and the overall region was outstanding.

What I think I loved the most was that Marina and Andres were so delightful to be around! We had so much fun with them and had a real connection which made the tours even more fun!

I highly recommend using Marina on your upcoming trip to Paris and its surrounding areas. I could not be more pleased with our time with Marina and Andres and my only regret was not using them for another tour while in town.

Paris with Marina just would NOT have been the same. Our time with Marina and her “co-guide”, her husband, was noting less than amazing. Marina is the “Go To” guide. She is versed in anything and everything to do with Paris. She is extremely knowledgeable and she holds MANY tour designations. Her husband was right on cue as our driver. They knew the exact places where to take us, where to drop us off and when to pick us up. The two of them planed a seamless trip for us. We were with them for two days of our week long trip. During our first day in Paris with them, we hit all of the Paris highlights. They work together like clockwork. They knew what monuments to see and what time of day it was best to see them. We avoided all of the typical tourist lines and we timed everything perfectly. If we had visited some of these landmarks on our own, we would never had the same understanding and appreciation of them. With Marina, we learned about the history of Monet and his family (it was nothing short of a soap opera) and MANY MANY other interesting facts about prior kings, queens and the like.

Our second day with Marina was to the champagne region of Paris. I highly recommend this tour too. We had our very own private tour of a local champagne maker. We went behind the scenes and deep down into the tunnels under the facility. We learned all about the champagne making process. We also visited Moët and Chandon and other local stores.

If I go back to Paris, I will definitely use Marina and her husband again. It was an absolute pleasure to be with them. You will not be disappointed with your tour. We took a group tour of Versailles toward the end of our trip and we were disappointed. The group tour was less expensive but was nowhere near the quality of being with Marina. Don’t hesitate to book the private tour with Marina, you will certainly get what you pay for.

Marina rearranged her schedule, and was able to get us a remarkable Louvre tour, of all the highlights, with very little lead time. It made our day, and our Paris trip for our 15 year old granddaughter memorable, and all in a very good way. Marina is knowlegeable, professional and very likable.

We used Marina's colleague, Elena, for three days of tours in and around Paris. Elena and her husband, Egdar, were amazing! Elena is extremely knowledgeable, speaks perfect English, and kept my 8 year old throughly entertained. We loved every minute of our three days. We would never use anyone else!

Dear Jennifer! Thanks for leaving a review, and mentioning our colleagues Elena and Edgar who replaced us because we were busy in Languedoc- Roussillon with our regular customer. You’re right, Elena is extremely knowledgeable and speaks perfect English! They are always smiling and we are happy that they are partners of France by Marina . We hope to see you again soon in France as France has so many places to discover.

It was our first visit of Paris and we had very limited time. We would never be able to get so much from our short stay in Paris without Marina and her colleague. Her knowledge and passion about France and Paris made our tours fantastic! We strongly recommend her as the best tour guide. As a bonus she can several languages including French and Russian. :-)

This was the 2nd time we used Marina as our tour guide. She is outstanding. She is extremely knowledgeable with a great and warm personality. We will use her again when we return to France in future years. Highly recommend! She and her husband who is also very nice, use a very nice SUV to transport and pick you up at your hotel. Speaks English very well. Also helped us to get tickets to events other her tours.

Having taken many individual tours throughout the world, I have to say that Marina and her husband/driver Andres are two of the most personable guides and drivers you'll ever meet. My wife, 7 year-old daughter, and myself spent a wonderful week traveling to the western coast of France (Etretat, Omaha Beach, Mont St Michel, Honfleur, Deauville, Trouville, etc) as well as Loire Valley, along with stops in Rouen, Giverny and Chartes.

Marina had some wonderful surprises along the way, and was extremely accommodative of my daughter and her eating habits, as well as getting to places at certain times for my photography. She also picked some very cool chateaus to stay at in Loire Valley. You can tell Marina loves her job and it shows.

We also spent two days in Paris with her colleague Elena, who was equally wonderful.

I would highly recommend!

With only one free day in Paris on a 5 day business trip with my dad to France, I was quite worried that I would go home without having explored this beautiful city.
As a American Express Business Platinum Card member, I called one of American Express' Paris Destination Experts, who quickly got me in touch with Marina. A few email exchanges later, I was set for a half day tour of Paris.
I knew touring with my elderly father would be a challenge. Recovering from back surgery he had four months ago, my dad was unable to walk long distances.
Marina took care of all the preparations for us. She rented a wheelchair for my dad, and had her husband, Andres, serve as our private chauffeur for the day!
Marina and Andres arrived early at our hotel for our 9:00 a.m. start. We quickly hopped into their spacious and comfortable van and were on our way. I have to write that Marina is like a walking and talking encyclopedia! She was able to share so much knowledge about Paris, from its origins, the different types of architecture, the layout of the city, to the current lifestyles and people of France. She effortlessly described in detail what our eyes were seeing, which made the experience so much more fulfilling.
Andres was such a great driver--not like the crazy cab drivers swerving in and out of traffic. He dropped us off and picked us up at various locations as passing tourists on foot and riding buses marveled at how we received red carpet treatment!
As we toured places like the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, and the Musee du Louvre, I couldn't help but smile as I could see tourists eavesdropping on Marina's words, nodding their heads in amazement of what she shared.
Our five hour tour seemed to go by so quickly, but we covered so much of the city and the sights!
If you have only one day in Paris, do what we did--take a private car tour with Marina!
I plan to return to France in the future, and I already know that I will be calling on Marina to take us around!!!
Hands down, the best guided tour I've ever been on!!!
