    Would definitely use April again!
    April was a professional from the start and her follow up skills are impeccable. She communicated at every step and our pickup was timely and pleasant. Her driver was knowledgeable about the area and also crisp and professional. God willing, we will someday return to Paris and I will use April in Paris tours exclusively for the entire trip!

    Beautiful Summer Morning Tour to Giverny
    This is the third time I have used April. She and all guides we used have been fantastic and super company! April arranged for us to go to Monet’s garden, about an hour from Paris, and had a comfortable luxury van pick us up at our hotel. Thank you for a great morning for our family to experience. I think of a couple of trees I saw there often!

    Do it! Tour with April in Paris.
    April is amazing! We hired her for 2 tours. The first was a delightful half day shopping tour of Le Marais neighborhood for my niece’s 16th birthday. We also did a fabulous full-day Versailles tour. Both tours were superb. April was knowledgeable, flexible, entertaining and had every detail covered. (She even planned a special breakfast complete with birthday candles!) I also appreciated how she sent us individual recommendations for restaurants and shops after each tour, based on the conversations we had and what we liked. I cannot recommend April enough. I would 100 percent hire her again. She made our trip to Paris magical!

    2hr Skip the Line Louvre Tour with Inna
    We did the 2hr Skip the Line Louvre Tour with Inna through April Tours and would definitely recommend! The booking was so easy. Great communication and Inna was wonderful. She is very knowledgeable and personable it was a great tour. She educated us on so much more and took us to see the highlights and gave us additional info if we wanted to venture on our own after the tour to continue. The Louvre is overwhelming and this tour made everything manageable. Thanks Inna and April tours!

    April in Paris made my May visit fantastique!
    This was my first legitimate stay in Paris. I wanted to see it all! I reached out to April in Paris for a trip to the Louvre, a tour of Paris and its wonderful history and architecture and the piece de resistance - a trip to Versailles. All three tours were amazing and I was delighted with the experiences and the memories that were made. I can't recommend her more. She is personable and made every attempt to make my experiences the best they could be. Thanks April!

    The best help you can get in Paris!
    April out did herself, again! My family and I planned a trip to Paris, Disney, but hotel transfers were not included. After searching the internet to see what other families did to get to Disney from Charles De Gaulle, I thought I would see if April could help. And help us she did! She organised us a beautiful private car to pick up the 8 of us with a bag of croissants in tow! In our group, we had two little travellers with us and April reassured me that there would be age appropriate car seats in the car as well. I cannot recommend April enough! April sent detailed confirmation emails and there was never a worry while traveling. This trip was not the first time we had April help us out in Pairs and it certainly will not be the last! Merci April!!

    Best in the business!
    I am a private travel concierge who curates itineraries and accompanies my clients to Paris. I have done several tours with April because she is the best in the business! April is very knowledgeable about the Chateau of Versailles and the town. She is so warm and charming that you will enjoy your time with her and learn all about the history of this magnificent palace and grounds. You will always remember the day you spent with her!

    The perfect way to explore Paris!
    We travelled to Paris as a group of 5 women and met up with April for a walking tour of Montmartre. April was such a delight! We honestly cannot recommend her enough. From the moment of booking, she reached out via email to find out about our group, our trip plans, and provided us with a list of recommendations. I was so impressed by this personal touch. The tour was a definite highlight of our time in Paris. April provided us with fun and insightful information about the area and took us to a few little “hidden” gems in addition to the main sites. The area was particularly bustling the day we were there so she quickly changed course and took us through some quieter area of Montmartre on our way up to Sacre Coeur. She even stopped along the way to help us make dinner reservations for that evening, which turned out to be our favourite dining experience in Paris. All I can say is if you’re looking to take a tour in Paris, this is the way to do it. I will gladly book again with April once my budget allows me to return to Paris. Merci beaucoup April!

    April brought a joy and energy to every aspect of the tour.
    By far the best tour i have done. April brought a joy and energy to every aspect of the tour - she was hugely informative with the historical significance of each place, her tales were filled with little gems of surprising knowledge. April is a remarkable story-teller and had an obvious passion for showing us the inside and out of the city. We wanted to see some main attractions but also to discover some less known treasure spots, there was nothing mundane and touristy about her approach and she catered to our individual preferences to make the tour a uniquely special time for us. We could spend hours and days exploring the city under her guidance.

    April helped us plan a trip to Brittany/Bretagne. We had a fantastic couple of days and enjoyed every moment. From small pretty towns to the best crepes places - we covered it all. Merci April!

    Fabulous Day in Champagne
    April organized a fabulous day tour for us in Champagne (Reims). Just as important as the itinerary itself, and her wonderful selections of where to go, was her ability to read our mood/preferences and adjust the day to meet our needs. Would absolutely recommend traveling with April, we had an incredible and unique experience.

    April in Paris Tours are the best!
    My husband and I were in Paris for a quick trip and a friend highly recommended that I use April in Paris for a tour. I am so glad that I did! April was veey knowledgeable about both current and historic Paris - we learned so much in a single morning with her! April met us at our hotel for the historic walking tour. She was an excellent communicator leading up to our trip and incredibly accommodating on our tour. She led the way, but allowed us to take detours and make pit stops. April has a fun, glowing personality and she really brought the history of Paris to life. In addition, April made invaluable suggestions for the remainder of our time in Paris and helped us make dinner plans for our last night there. We were grateful to have her help and spend the morning with her… we highly recommend her tours!

    Paris, Bruges, Mont St. Michel
    April made it easy for us to see Paris and then Bruges, Belgium and even Mont St. Michel. She had her chauffeure Christophe pick us up at our hotel and take us efficiently to our destinations with great recommendations for meals. He even added two sites for us to see that made the trip so special. He made the trip fun, kept up with our luggage, made photos for us, took us by the Olympic venues and just made us feel like royalty. We recommend April and Christophe highly

I’ve been to Paris quite a few times and have followed April on Facebook for about 1 1/2 years. This trip was with girlfriends who had never been to Paris and I wanted to make their trip magical. It worked. They have fallen in love with my favorite city and are planning to return with their spouses. Our day with April was a full day beginning at 10 am and ending around 7:00 pm. We loved acting like a local with her, taking the metro and walking about 8 miles. One of my most memorable moments was finally seeing the 4th Statue of Liberty in Paris. I always make it a point to see the large one near Pont de Bir Hakeim but to see this one so up close was magical. I hope April enjoyed our treat for her to the top of the Montparnasse Tower for sunset and the twinkling view of the Eiffel Tower. It was my pleasure to take her somewhere she had not been in the city. She said I am a true “Left Bank” lover but I have to say I am now quite fond of the “Right Bank”. I will be back in September for my birthday and can’t wait to spend a day or two with April making more discoveries. Merci beaucoup mon ami, tu es un vrai trésor. À bientôt. 💗 Dori.

Touring with April was the absolute highlight of my trip to Paris! She will take you on a knowledgeable, thorough and colorful tour all the white making smile and laugh! She knows the new and old alike and can adapt your tour to your particular interests with finely-tuned finesse. And if you don't know what you want to see she goes with her gut--and it's always right! You will not regret it. We covered all of Paris in a day: all the while learning all the history, eating the best macarons as well as amazing GLUTEN FREE crepes (yes she knows where to go for everything) AND we still had energy at the end of the night! Her ability to retain knowledge AND read her clients moods and likes is astounding. She is truly talented. She knows her stuff and LOVES her job. I can't say enough good things about April's tours. As a result, I've referred many friends to her and they have come back with the same result. Consensus: tours with April are a must!

Absolutely made Paris magical. If she can engage two families, US and German and keep our 15,12 and 9 year entertained even despite language barriers ! and with learning cool amazing things, so worth it !She arranged everything and was so enthusiastic and ON IT! Our kids want to come back and visit her again. I booked everything after booking her first. Having the perfect tour can really make a trip extra special . Our kids loved her . I would recommend the day tour first because we got to experience most of the areas we inevitably strolled through in our own comfortably. Then the St Germain food tour!!! Wow,m ! The next day Louvre, and even arranged a last min Disneyland trip transport! The next day Versailles where we hand selected our picnic and bikes across the gardens to visit the palace. Magical. Whatever she recommends just do it you won't regret it . Her recommendation to stay in St Germain area was a perfect center point for all of our shopping dining needs and to get on these tours . She knows so much history but doesn't overwhelm you with it. Plus she knows what seems like everyone in Paris which was great teaching experience to our kids of how important it is to connect with strangers that may become lasting friends .

We had a custom tour with April and she is absolutely wonderful! So kind, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and so fun!
Since we didn’t want to do super touristy things, April tailored our tour according to everything we had asked and it was beyond our expectations. She is such a joy to be with - her love of Paris exuded throughout the time we spent with her.
If you are in Paris I strongly recommend booking a tour with April it was the best decision we made.

Our girlfriend trip to Paris was an experience of a lifetime, and a dream come true thanks to April. Meeting April was just like meeting up with a friend. Her joyful personality made everything more interesting. The Off the Beaten Path Tour was the perfect combination of the history, cafe lifestyle and Parisian culture. We went to a cafe for lunch, and I still think about the fresh bites of burrata, tomatoes, basil and truffle oil. We could have people watched and chatted all day. This is the moment I fell in love with Paris. April showed us streets with small businesses like florals, fresh seafood and veggies that were carefully selected to show on their tables. April took us to the oldest bakery in France, and we enjoyed a hand held creme Brulee, and coffee. "When in Paris...". April gave us history lessons that were jaw dropping and interesting. I'm home now in Florida, still on Paris time, and writing this review is bringing a smile and a softness to my face... remembering our day with April is to remember Paris. ❤

We loved our morning with April wandering streets we would never have found on her own. Her knowledge of French history, culture, and general joie de vivre captivated us. Pacing was outstanding and the choice of cafe for coffee and pastry was perfect. She ended the tour by directing us to Etiquette Wine Bar for a tasting of organic wines with Maitre Herve -- a delightful postlude to our ramble. She later emailed us a list of restaurants, markets, and destinations to further enhance our visit in the city. We could not recommend her more highly.

The private walking tour offered by April was fantastic! My husband and I visited Paris in December 2022. On the day of the tour, it was one of the coldest day in Paris this winter and April showed up on time, cater to our needs to get warm up at times and very flexible.

April provided great insight into the history of each landmark we visited and gave us a really good background of the city. She also sent us recommendations for restaurants and other areas to visit in the future. Overall, it was a great experience and will definitely book her tour again when we are back in France next time.

My grandmother and I travelled to Paris and April assisted us in coordinating virtually our entire trip. She assisted us with securing transportation to and from CDG airport, led us on three tours, and organized a museum tour for us with another tour guide, Inna, who was extremely knowledgeable about the Louvre and Musee D'Orsay. April is well versed in the vast history of Paris, kind, and very accommodating. We cannot recommend her enough!

It was an amazing experience with April. She made sure to make me enriched in the rich history of Paris and France by explaining all the historic facts of each place she took me to. Gave me great restaurant suggestions and site seeing suggestions as well so definitely recommend to go on a private walking tour with her when in Paris

Touring with April was such a joy. She's so friendly and enthusiastic without being over the top chatty. Even though it was our fourth trip to Paris, she showed us things we'd never seen or heard about and took us to neighborhoods we didn't know existed. April really puts time into planning her tours to be lively and fun but casual and informative too. She's a real find!
