Marlene fetched us at 8 am and navigated the Paris morning traffic confidently and carefully getting us to Versailles just before 9 am and the start of private tour groups. We were first in and she led us from room to room with detailed explanations of the decor, the paintings, the history. Always interesting, giving just the right amount of... More

I always do a lot of research when I hire a tour company when traveling outside of the U.S. Well I hit a home run with Private Tours Paris (PTP). I worked with Julie, Lucia and Chiara, but mostly Lucia and Julie. These three people were great. Their service and follow up was excellent and we had a great time... More

We were in Paris for four days before taking a river cruise. I decided I would like to visit the WWl battlefields where my dad fought during the war. He was in all of the major battles that the 5th Marines fought in. I had heard many stories about his time there and I wanted to visit some of those... More

We booked a tour of Normandy with PTP. Our queries and organisation over the Internet were promptly and knowledgeable answered by Chiara and Lucia- nothing was a problem. Claude was our guide and met us on time and enthusiastically drove and guided us through Normandy. Claude happily engaged with our 6 year old daughter and patiently explained the churches to...

We booked several tours for the four days we were in Paris. Our day guide was Pierre and the night guide was Dimitri. My conversations and emails were handled by Clement and Lucia. No questions went unanswered, they were truly most helpful in all of our bookings and had several suggestions to make our short stay that much more meaningful.... More

Don't be a cheapskate when touring Paris. We had a full 8 hour tour of the ENTIRE city including all major sites. All of this was not your standard tourist guide jibberish. Our guide, Stephane, was a fully educated, sophisticated and an intelligent guide of the highest caliber. On the second day we had a limited schedule but even half... More

I was looking for a tour while in Paris to visit Vimy Ridge and Beaumont-Hamel. While TripAdvisor shows some, I could not find one that went on the day we were available. Finally found this one and they were great. Easy booking experience, quick answered to questions, flexible, and willing to work with me. The tour was one day and... More

We were a part of that cruising group arriving in LaHavre. Milan, the guide assigned to introduce us to Paris, driving a Mercedes van for just the six of us, definitely gave us a more personal and intimate experience, that just can't be had in a large tour bus. We truly enjoyed Milan's passion for sharing his homeland and the... More
