Very informative tour. Ricki Stevenson was extremely personable, it felt more like visiting an old friend. In addition to the information on the tour, she shared additional information about sights and activities that added to my stay in Paris. This was as wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend the Black Paris Tours.

This was an amazing tour and by far my favorite part of my study abroad experience. I didn't realize how much African Americans influenced Paris France! Her descriptions of the history were so visual and you can tell she is patient about what she does! I would highly recommend this tour!

I just took about 20 college students on this tour today. It was amazing. Ricki and her assistant gave us a brief orientation at our hotel. We then drove to several sites in the city as she explained a lot of things about black history in Paris and Parisian history in general. She has a very pleasant and down-to-earth personality....

Informative, interactive, and meaningful! Rickie is extremely personable and knows a lot about the past interaction of African Americans living/performing/working in Paris, France. You will complete this tour pleased, surprised, and eager to learn more. This is a tour worth repeating. We have already recommended it to your family, friends, and colleagues.
