“Excellent neighborhood tour guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We booked a private 6 hr tour with Chris, for our family, including our 13 yr old daughter and 15 yr old son. We all loved the day -- he provided insights on the neighborhoods and Paris history that we couldn't have learned any other way. He also provided the highlights of Notre Dame and the Louvre -- something our children weren't expecting to enjoy but he brought it all to life. I highly recommend Chris to learn more about Paris from the street level, rather than a tour bus.

Hello! Thank you for your review, wow, I am happy to hear that your children liked the tour as well, I know that art is sometimes not the most interesting part for the youngest but I always try to make my tours interesting for all the members of the family. Thank you so much! Kind regards, Chris

“A must do in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

We were in Paris for 3 days and actually did 3 walking tours with Chris and Tamara. Both made excellent tour guides and were very informative. We had our 6 month old with us as well and they were very accommodative. My fav was the classic, followed by Latin quarter and then the montramarte.

This is very good value and u would highly recommend it to family and friends.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I booked a private tour with Chris so I could take the children to Paris for the day during our London vacation while my husband remained behind. Despite our train being late, Chris met us at the train station and proceeded to show us all the sights of Paris in a wonderful way, educating my daughters about the history, art and beauty of the city. He is an extraordinary tour guide and I recommend him very highly; the kids loved him and learned a great deal. Also, it was very nice to have someone meet our train so I never had to worry about the metro, taxis, etc-we were all in Chris' good care from the moment we arrived until we left. I will recommend him to all my friends visiting Paris.

“Monmatre tour with Chris - thoroughly enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Chris was an excellent tour guide, informative and humourous. He speaks good English and maintains everyones attention. We learnt so much more than we expected, things we never would have know without his detail. From the Moulin Rouge, you walk up hill through cobbled roads, ending at Sacre Couer. You will definitely want to tip him well and congratulate him on a job well done.

“Montmarte walking tour with Chris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

My mom and I were in Paris and did the Montmarte walking tour with Chris a couple of weeks ago. I've been to Paris a few times previously and I have to say this was the best tour I've been on to date. It was lovely to hear all the interesting facts and stories about Montmarte from a true Parisian. I will recommend the tour to anyone. Thank you Chris, we have a fantastic time.
