When I contacted Boris my husband and I were primarily seeking a guide for the museum Orsay. We also wanted to explore the left bank and thought we could combine the two. Boris was very flexible and happy to work with our requests. What we ended up seeing and doing was beyond any expectation. We started at the museum Though... More

The insight shared was extremely valuable. I would never consider taking a trip to Paris without taking advantage of the invaluable expertise and professionalism of this tour group.

Booked a wheelchair from www.parisprivateguides.com to allow my mother to enjoy the many sights she would have otherwise not been able to visit. The service from Christopher Back (Director @ www.parisprivateguides.com) was exceptional. Christopher was very helpful, the process of arranging the chair was very well explained and gave me confidence that everything was going to run smoothly. The chair... More

We went on our first visit to Paris and it was an excellent experience. They arranged for Airport Transfers, a Private Tour of Paris and a Private Tour of Versailles. Our driver and our guides, Alice and Sandrine, were outstanding. Thank you!

Contacted me in advance, asked alot of questions and was exactly on track with what I wanted to do and find. I would highly recommend her if you are wanting some great clothes, no... More

In Paris, Christopher guided a friend and two others on a gourmet walking tour. A sunny spring day together with an extraordinary host gave us a wonderful experience. Christopher's knowledge and gentle hospitality were exceptional. The tour was personal and unrushed taking us through lanes, every type of gourmet treat you can imagine from pastries to cheese to chocolate to... More

They provide such service; it's almost like magic. It was great to bounce ideas off them and they made everything so easy. Long distance planning can be so difficult, and they made it work like a charm. I used them to set up some hotel deliveries and a celebratory dinner for my brother's honeymoon. They provided receipts, documentation, photos, and... More

I was lucky enough to enjoy the Gourmet History Walking Tour of Paris whilst recently in Paris. It was a gentle walk through lovely areas of Paris that one would possibly never discover on their own or perhaps take a long time finding them. Our group enjoyed the delights of some fabulous pastries, cheese and wine. Our guide was very... More

This was our first trip to Paris. We stayed a week and covered many of the city's famous and not so famous places. Paris Private Guides is a great value when compared to all that we did and enjoyed and learned. Christopher's recommendations, reservations and attention to detail were very important to first time visitors.

My family and I took the train from London to Paris for the day. We had from 10am to 8pm to see Paris. I checked reviews and booked Christopher at Paris Private Guides so that we could make the best use of our time. Christopher ended up not being able to make it but he sent another wonderful guide named... More
