I learned some new things, the guide was pleasant. There were only a handful of stops on the tour and no difficult walking. Started near Les Invalides and ended in the Latin Quarter. Guide warned that the tour woukd not be chronological, which I understand, given the geography of Paris and the breadth of the subject. But I wish almost all history tours would start with a solid grounding of background, influences on the events and a timeline. My friend enjoyed the tour more than I did, and i think the other seven people enjoyed it a lot as well. I would rate it as good, not great. The greek tour guides English was quite good, amd she was entusiastic.

It was only a 2-3 hour tour but Jerome took us a our own pace and made every site more interesting that ever before. He explained the history of the Eiffel Tower and other buildings, like pointing out and explaining the bullet holes in the building where the French held out during invasion by the Germans. Little things he explained made the tour SO worth it.

At first, I was a little daunted about meeting in a park by a metro. But once studying the meeting instructions & looking it up on Google Earth, it was a piece of cake. The tour guide Danielle was very knowledgeable, entertaining & easy to understand. It was very hot & Danielle made sure we stopped in shady areas when she paused to tell us stories. There is a lot of walking on cobble roads & dirt, so wear comfy shoes. History really comes to life on this tour! You would never know the stories of these places if you just walked on your own. I would definitely recommend Fat Tire Tours for walking tours in Paris!

We are history lovers as a family and it was very disappointing to walk and walk and hear nothing particularly interesting that is not in a textbook from our guide Sonya. She was more of a person interested as well, but with no exceptional details or in depth explanations of the causes, processes and main figureheads of the revolution. Sorry but maybe if we had the other guide it would have been the same success told by in other reviews.

We have had many guided tours and this one was the worst tour ever. First of all the guide did not have proper English to do this job. She have a very monotonous voice that was very hard to follow. It was like a child telling a story all broken up. Secondly this was not a tour! This was a like a boring class that you had to do tons of walking not to anywhere in particular. Just walking and stopping for more lecture. No sites except the Borboun Palace was visited. Please do yourself a favor and skip this one! I regret spending the time I am not even worried about the money. Waste of time!!!

Our hotel recommended Paris Walking Tour-French Revolution fit our schedule. OMG, is Chris (our guide) good at telling the primary story with details to captivate you at every turn. (I thought he was schooled in theater because he was so expressive, clearly understood and enthusiastic! Walking through Paris is so fun when you are learning as you go. He pointed out markets, signs and other points of interest while quickly getting back on the subject. If all tours are this good, I could do ALL "Paris Walks" and probably learn more about Paris in a week than any other method. You gotta go!

We were a small group, six in total, which made it very nice...we all got aquatinted, and Oscar shared some of his personal history. He was informed, humorous, and very clear in his presentation...the tour was interesting, and we will never forget the three Louie’s...the son, the fun and the done! We enjoyed our time with Oscar!

The guide seemed very nice, but unfortunately this wasn't a good tour. The places we walked to didn't really match up with what was being talked about - it was just someone taking us around well-known areas like Place de la Concorde and reciting what seemed like a half-remembered French revolution wikipedia page, in an extremely unengaging and monotonous way.

Follow-up questions didn't get interesting answers, and the guide unpredictably swang between assuming the people on the tour knew everything already, to explaining extremely basic and boring details, to just completely missing out parts of the narrative. Anyone who went into the tour not sure what happened would probably be none the wiser at the end.

Considering it wasn't cheap it should have been a lot better. Judging by some of the other reviews here some of the guides are better than the one we got, so take your chances, I suppose.

For €320 I expected much more. Our guide gave us a marked up book, couldn’t remember many of the dates and had to keep borrowing the book to look for them. She was incredibly soft spoken and hard to hear, and not dynamic in anyway. I thought this would be the highlight of our trip based on the reviews, so a word of warning-make sure you don’t get Christina as a guide. She was a nice lady, but not suited to this type of activity at all-almost no personality. I am tempted to ask for a partial refund.

I signed up for this tour because I love learning the history of any place that I visit. Our guide, Richard, was informative and enthusiastic. He was very knowledgeable about his topic. He did a great job of making the topic come alive!
