Although I have lived in Paris for 5 months, I had yet to go on a tour. I went on the French Revolution themed tour and learned a lot about sites that I walk by every day! Very interesting and informative.

Great tour with Tanya. Very informative. We even had a couple of minutes to shop at Shakespeare and Company. The only thing missing, would of been to include a visit to Les Arènes de Lutèce

This tour is pricey compared to the cost of the ticket to just go up the tower. However the lines are very long and you must purchase online very far advance to avoid them on your own (like 3+ months). Even if you purchase far ahead of time you are then locked into a specific date and time and can't... More

Went on this tour with Steph, who was a very informative and engaging guide. She was able to connect with the group and made the information fun and easy to understand. Even though the walk itself was quite long, it didn't feel that way as Steph had little pieces of knowledge about everything, and always had knowledge to share. I... More

The classic tour with our guide Steph was a brilliant addition to an Easter weekend in Paris! She is a fountain of Knowledge and can tell you anything ranging from the some-what gruesome history of the French revolution to the best places to dine in Paris. The weather was lovely, Steph's delivery of French history was hilarious and I highly... More

We did the French Revolution tour with Steph and would highly recommend it-we were a family of 5 with children aged 8 to 14 and she kept their attention for the whole 2+ hours. Steph is a history graduate who studied in Paris and was very knowledgable and also skilled at making the information easy to understandand FUN! I would... More

The 'Skip the Line' tickets were well worth the cost as we were able to bypass many hundreds of people jammed in the huge waiting lines for the Eiffel Tower. There was only a 5 minute wait for the elevator. Our guide, Victor, was great; very enthusiastic, personable and knowledgable. Highly recommended!

We had two different experiences with tours of Le Marais and Montmarte with Classic Walks. Paul who showed us around Le Marais was excellent and sensitive to his audience. We toured on a very rainy and windy day around all the sights in Marais. With a five year old in tow, he popped us into a wonderful bakery for croissants... More

She is awesome. Knows everything there is to know on the subject and more. Ask for Steph's tour. I never thought I would learn so much. Most other guides are doing it as a sideline. She is what a guide should be.

Our guide, Steph, was extremely well-informed and shared a ton of history while walking us through Paris. The city was beautiful, of course, but Steph helped us appreciate the rich past Paris has to offer too--all while keeping us entertained with her goofy charm. The tour itself is very useful for those who have never been to Paris, and need... More
