While I'd been to Paris a few times, it was the 1st for my wife (Helen). We did these tours a couple of weeks ago with Emmanuel being our guide - he was really great - wonderful conversation, knowledgable and certainly knew how to work through the tourist throngs to our best advantage without inconveniencing anyone. Can't rate the experience... More

Seven of us had a driver and an 8 passenger mercedes van. Very nice. The driver knew everything. We had a twelve hour day trip to Normandy. It was excellent. Cannot say more than praises about the day.

I visited Paris with my husband after a business conference in England. We have hired private guides in many cities and always had a good experience. We booked 3 tours - Paris Discovery / Louvre, Normandy, and Versailles / Giverny. We were disappointed. Our guide was Spanish and had an accent that was very difficult to understand. We had to...

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

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.
