First Time to Paris. The Black Paris Tour was awesome. Very educational, fun and enlightening. Little Africa was the greatest. (Loved the food)! Thanks Riki Tashi and Donald Buggs.

Great job Madame Stevenson (and Team). This added so much more value to my vacation that will be cherished and shared for generations. I encourage everyone to take this tour because it helps understand the traditions and cultural foundation to ALL of Paris.

Myself, daughter and sister had an amazing experience with Ricki sharing with us the history of Black people and their deep connection with Paris, France, missing info in U.S. history books.
