We went on the full day Paris/Louvre tour and the half day Versailles tour. We had the most incredible guide-Catherine- who was an absolute expert. We saw more in a day and a half than I thought possible and we were blown away by Catherine's knowledge. Do yourself a favor and go on at least one tour offered by Private... More

My mom and I booked an all day tour to Auvers-sur-Oise and Giverny. It was rather expensive for the two of us, and I am not certain that it was worth the cost, but we enjoyed it very much. The car was clean and spacious and, Milan, our guide was knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. He suggested we do Auvers-sur-Oise first... More

We took the Giverny tour this fall. Our family took this tour because we were in Paris for such a short time, hoping we could cut some time off the confusion of making our way around. I picked this tour because I thought we could actually see ALL the things that were listed in the description, which went beyond what... More

Emanuel was excellent. He customized our tour. We felt safe and knew he was making sure that what we wanted was what we received. We will ask for him always and give his name to all our friends and family.

We did many private tours in the last month in various cities through Europe as we really wanted our children to learn a lot about the history of the places we were visiting. When booking each tour that we did I specified that we had children and their ages and that we wanted them to learn. Unfortunately the 2 tours... More

We did tours two days in a row with Colleen of Private Tours Paris. She was an excellent guide both days, timely, knowledgable and friendly. The service is pricey, but well worth it to get an overview of the city as well as the quick access to the Louvre and Versailles. Paris was mobbed over the Christmas holidays and the... More

We hired Private ours Paris to take my family 5 children and 2 adults to Versailles. We amended the trip to add a tour of the private quarters instead of the gardens since it was December. Our guide was timely and knowledgeable. The tour went exactly as planned and during a busy time of year it is important to have... More

My wife and I plus one friend took four Private Tours this past May: three with Pierre-Yves (8-9 hrs of the whole city of Paris; Giverney; and Chartres) and one full-day with Jack to Normandy (Omaha Beach, Pointe du Hoc, US and German cemeteries, et al.). All three of us were unanimous that all four tours were well worth the... More

We spent one weekend in Paris during our 12 day stay in Europe. One weekend is not enough to experience Paris properly. However, we were able to make the most of one full day by booking the Private Tour and spending our day with Christian. There would have been no way we could have seen as much of the city,... More

My wife and I enjoyed a private tour of Versaille accompanied by our guide, Emanuelle. The whole experience was highly enjoyable. Very informative, patient and accommodating. Versaille is a beautiful, fascinating place to visit. Picked up and dropped off exactly as arranged. Highly recommended
