We returned last week from a trip to Paris and Zurich and had a great time. I've left very good reviews for various tours and the two hotels we stayed at. However, we scheduled 2 tours with this company and neither of them was very good and certainly not worth the money. I would not recommend using this company based... More

We chose to book a private tour through Private Tours Paris for a half day trip to Versailles. When I first made the booking, email correspondence was very quick and attentive, leaving me feeling at ease with this company. We paid half of the price when booking the tour and paid the rest on the day of the tour. It... More

My family (group of six) had only one extra day in Paris on our itinerary and yet we wanted to see both Versailles and Monet's Giverny. After doing some research into options we decided that a private tour guide was really the only option to make it work, and after looking into pricing and reviews, we picked Private Tours Paris...

We just returned from a 10 day trip to Paris and our experience with Private Tours was exceptional. We had a group of nine family members ranging from ages 10 to 74 and our guides were always very accommodating to our mobility and interest levels. Customer service, tours, comfort level... everything was done to perfection from start to finish! In... More

We took the Versailles-Giverny tour as well as the Paris tour. Pierre Yves was a great guide! We saw so much even though we were pressed for time. He was very knowledgable about the arts and French history. On top of that he was very friendly and accommodated our own pace. We went with older people and a young child... More

We only had a short 5 day stay in Paris so I researched Tours on TA and came across Paris Discovery Tours. Communication via email with Lucia was fantastic and prompt and she answered all my queries with great professionalism. We decided to do the 8 hour Paris Discovery Tour which included the Louvre and all the main sights in... More

I so wanted this to be wonderful, but at the end of the day felt like we missed out on the best of Versailles and honestly didn't feel like it was worth the hefty price tag. I'm writing this review not to overly criticize, but in the hope that others learn from our experience. I would consider using this service... More

We had just one day to tour Paris and because Private Tours Paris was so helpful to me, through several emails, we selected a tour on Sunday, with them. Our guide, Gustavo, took us to the Louvre and highlights of Paris. We had a wonderful day; just wish we'd had another day to have another guided tour with this company.... More

Great 8 hour tour with our guide Christian. He was promp, professional and catered to our desires to skip some spots we already toured and focus on what we wanted to see. Everything went very well and the Louvre was easy as we skipped the lines and he took us directly to what we were interested in. We invited him... More
