We booked a hotel 10 mins walkable from Eiffel Tower. Could anyone please tell me how would I join Chris or how do I cover... More

We hired Chris to do a private tour of the Louvre on our first night in Paris. We were jet lagged and unsure if we would take full advantage of the museum. But Chris made the jet lag fade away as we laughed and were mesmerized by the art and Chris' unbelievable knowledge of the work. Before we went into... More

I joined the free tour based on the positive reviews on tripadvisor and it proves to be correct! Chris showed up around 10 minutes earlier just right in the exit of metro. He is very knowledgeable about Paris and Montmartre so he can answer all questions asked by the group. Chris also tried to interact with all people during the... More

Chris met us as promised at the metro stop.. Glad I made reservations as others that walked up to join were told he was "booked". As it turned out a couple of no shows made for a small group, about 12 of us. Chris was easy to hear, and follow as we strolled by some otherwise discreet sites like Van... More

Did a custom walking tour of Montmartre, Sacre Coeur, and Marais with Chris and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Sacre Coeur was very crowded but still magnificent. Having lived in the area, he knew details about every street and every building. Chris is fluent in English and was a joy to spend the afternoon with. He was funny and informative and... More

My family and I took the Montmartre tour during the first week of August, and it was great!!! I have to admit, I have been on some seriously great tours in the past, and since it was free, I wasn't sure about what to expect. However, I booked based solely on TripAdvisor reviews, thinking that even if it wasn't great,... More

In early July, our family of five (including 2 teenagers and 1 preteen) took the Montmarte trip with Chris, largely based on TripAdvisor reviews. Believe the hype!! Chris has a wealth of experience with that part of Paris. His tour is packed with interesting stops and stories of windfalls and vineyards and Picasso, typically punctuated with some understated humor. Chris... More

I took the Montmartre tour yesterday with Chris. It was a very interesting tour with lots of stories about the history of the area being told along the way. Chris is a very friendly and approachable person and is clearly passionate about what he does which made the tour very worthwhile. I would recommend the tour to anyone visiting Paris.
