20+ years ago I lived in Paris for 6 mo and return regularly, this time I wanted to hire an expert to provide a little help in discovering areas I would not find easily on my own. April in Paris was recommended to me by an local author friend when I shared my keen interest in facts, insights and history. He added "April is dynamic and very knowledgeable, you'll have a great time!" Indeed, I did and he was right! April, was easy to reach, responsive and very organized.

I wanted to "do" the Marais so we landed on a 3-hr walking tour. April developed an itinerary that fully met my interests from architecture, historic stories, food recs, tastings, behind closed doors, quaint courtyards, gardens and even a cool library i'd hoped to see. The price was reasonable and paid in advance and we could add some time if needed/available.

I recommend April for her organization, responsiveness, thoughtful itinerary and joy, as well as her follow-up with the full agenda with links to places we visited and the additions and finds we encountered during the tour. Go to April in Paris any time of the year!

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.

"April In Paris is a one-of-a-kind, can't miss experience! I thought that the abundant Parisian beauty would be obvious but April has the gift of bringing that beauty to life! Not only does she know the interesting historical ins and outs of the classic Parisian features we all know and love, but she also has a flair for featuring the unconventional, lesser-known (and way more exciting) details that make the tours engaging, entertaining, and always roaring with laughter. April's attention to YOUR style and vibe is unparalleled - I truly had the tour of MY dreams that was personalized to not just the experiences I wanted to have but the person I am. Vraiment incroyable! THANK YOU, April! 10 stars out of 5!"

April is a very unique tour guide. She makes the tour seem like you are an old friend from her neighborhood and she's showing you some unique and fascinating places. She takes you to her favorite places and the owners are happy to see her. She is very meticulous in preparing our trips. She maintains communication via WhatsApp, and email. She arranged our train tickets, chauffer services (Sami was wonderful) and makes recommendations for restaurants. Our tour w Sonja to Montmartre was just as exciting and fun. Sonja is very knowledgeable also and she too shares her enthusiasm & passion about Paris! We highly recommend April in Paris Tours. If you want expert and personalized service, April in Paris Tours are exceptional!

I’ve always known that I liked Montmartre’s energy, but seeing it through April’s eyes and experience was absolutely worth every minute! From the moment I met her she started explaining every street to me, and what we are about to see along the way. She’s very passionate about what she does, and plans out every single step of the day, and most of all she is incredibly passionate about this city.

We started by climbing up towards the Sacre Coeur from an angle I had never seen, sat on the grass for a quick apero, and then walked around to see the secret little parks, the vineyard, the different picturesque spots before stopping for a quick lunch in the artists’ square. Every step of that journey came with incredible and exciting stories about both the history of these places and how they became what they are today.

April listens carefully to everything you say and changes the itinerary as we go to include things she felt would match the things you talked about or said you liked! This led me to a few of the spots and a photo booth from the famous film Amelie, pictures of myself (which I never do) and a painting by one of the artists, which is also something I said never works out!

I definitely recommend a tour with April - whether you are visiting or live in Paris (I used to live here 2.5 years)!

Wow, Ahmed, thank you so much for the raving review! It was such a pleasure being your guide and showing you the hidden gems of Montmartre! I am so glad to hear that you learned a few things about Paris and the "village atop the hill", even after living here for many years! I hope to see you again soon in Paris!

April in Paris is an outstanding tour guide!!!

I love April! A couple of friends and I went on her Off the Beaten Path Tour of Paris on July 20, 2021. We met at the statue of Marianne at Place de la République. April explained the meaning of the statue and then pointed out interesting sights along the way. Although I am fluent in French and have been to Paris many times and my friends are French, we all learned something during the tour. We visited Paris’ oldest pastry shop and stopped at a café for a coffee. We also had lunch together at Le Flor en L’Ile on Ile St Louis. We ended with a wine tasting at L’Etiquette Wine Cave on Ile St Louis. The owner, Hervé, specializes in organic, biodynamic and sulfite free wines. I now consider April to be a good friend.

I went on a tour with April in May to discover Paris highlights. I would say April is a great guide, very informative and flexible. As I was alone she could customise the tour and took her time to show me around and even offered me some French specialties that she usually takes her customers for food tours.
Thanks once again April.
Highly recommended!

I booked the April in Paris Virtual Tour for my family in Madagascar . I have been living in Paris for many years now and it was so wonderful to be able to show my family in my homeland my adopted home. I have watched April’s tour company flourish over the past years and I knew that this would be the perfect way to let my family explore Paris. Not only the beautiful sites like La Tour Eiffel but some of local areas too. April was charming, funny and informative. My family and I all loved this virtual tour. What a great experience!

This review should have been written months ago! Last September, a bunch of my girlfriends joined me in Paris for my bachelorette party! One of them had already done a tour with April and told me about how bubbly and fun she was, saying her day with April was a highlight of her trip. So I booked April for two tours during my girls week to Paris! I love Marie Antoinette so for our first day with April, we took her fabulous Versailles Tour! What a memorable day! April came to meet us at our apartment with Samy, our driver, and off to Versailles we went! We stopped at the local market where we shopped for picnic treats and even did a wine tasting and enjoyed delicious crepes from the charming Karim. When we got to the gardens, we rented bikes and cycled through the beautiful grounds, visiting the Trianons and Marie Antoinettes peasant village!!! It was a dream come true, walking in her footsteps. The picnic was amazing! We had cheese, wine, baguette, macarons, champagne, olives, prosciutto, salami, the list goes on. And the backdrop was the amazing palace!! At the end of the day we went inside the palace. WOW! It’s the most over the top place I’ve ever seen!

For our second tour with April, I asked her to customize an evening out in the Pigalle district. We learned about the history of the neighbourhood, visited some quirky shops, took photos out front of the Moulin Rouge and finished the night in an old brothel, turned cocktail bar. April pointed us in the direction of a dance floor afterwards, where we danced the night away!

Thank you April for making my bachelorette party so memorable! I want to get married again just so we can do it all over!

April is a true historian not to mention a true sweetheart! No other way to describe her besides saying she is AWESOME! My trip would have been ruined if I didn’t have April to assist me with my planning! April assisted my family before, during and after our trip to Paris! April in Paris tour was the best tour I have taken thus far! April customized the tour to include everything she knew we would love to see as well as things we wanted to do and see. She’s your live map, your photographer, your friend and tour guide all wrapped into one!April helped make our Paris trip a trip of a life time! I highly recommend using April as your tour guide!!! 🥰🥰🥰
