Wonderful introduction to the history and development of Paris. Elena discovered what we already knew and then crafted our time filling in the gaps and building on the foundation. Great for first time visitors, or those who’ve been before, but are sketchy on the details.

This was a great tour to hit some of the highlights in Paris. We were lucky to get Romain as our guide. Turned out my husband and I were the only ones but Romain didn't let that stop him from giving us an excellent tour. He was friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable about history, culture, architecture and art. We learned so much! Romain shared his vast knowledge in an informative, entertaining and interesting way. You can't go wrong with this tour especially if you can get Romain as your guide.

Anastasia was wonderfully knowledgeable and great company. We saw all the sights and didn't feel rushed at all. Highly recommend. February is low season so our group tour ended up being a private. A bonus to say the least.

I went on this tour with my 14 year old. Could not have asked for a better tour guide than Francois. He was super knowledgeable, answered all our questions, and was totally engaging. Both my 14 year old and I loved our morning with Francois.

My wife and I booked The History of Paris & City Center Guided Walking Tour - Semi-Private for our first morning in Paris. What a wonderful way to start our trip. Our guide, Ferit, was incredibly knowledgeable and very informative as we strolled around Paris. Since my wife and I were the only ones on the tour, we were able to customize the tour and Ferit didn’t disappoint. I highly recommend this tour - especially as a small group. Thanks Ferit!!
