We were sad we weren’t able to see the inside of Notre Dame during our trip, but Harvey made up for it. He was so charming, knowledgeable and helpful. We highly recommend this tour!

Thank you very much for your review and recommendation! We are delighted you enjoyed your tour - despite us not being able to go into Notre Dame at the moment her story is still being written today as you visit, and we very much hope that you will be able to come back when the renovations are finished and take a tour of the inside with us. We hope you enjoyed the rest of the beautiful Ile de la Cité and that you had a wonderful stay in Paris.

Thank you so much for your review! We very much wanted to allow our guests to continue to witness and be a part of the history of Notre Dame after the fire in April, and the other spectacular monuments on the island are so worth a visit, so we really are happy to read that you enjoyed your tour with Caroline. Thank you for your recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you and your family and friends on future tours!

We were reluctant to take this tour after the fire, but we were so glad we did. We have taken a lot of tours before, but our tour guide, John, we all decided was the best we have ever had! He did a great job explaining without overwhelming us and kept the tour interesting and moving that we were sorry when it was over. As the other reviewers have said, Sainte Chapelle is not to be missed when in Paris. The stained glass is so beautiful that pictures and words cannot do it justice. We just have to go back now to see Notre Dame!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. As you can imagine everyone here in Paris was devastated after the fire at Notre Dame, but there is still such a lot of wonderful things to see on the Ile de la Cité, and we felt it was important to be present and to witness this new chapter as Notre Dame turns this page in her long history. And of course as you say the Sainte Chapelle is breathtaking and magnificent! We have passed your kind comments on to John, and we would be delighted to welcome you back in future for a visit to Notre Dame.

We were in Paris for few days in early May, 2018, and found this tour of Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle, and the Conciergerie. We were fortunate with a beautiful morning, and an excellent guide in Thibaud. He was enthusiastic, attentive, entertaining, and provided us with his own take on aspects of the French character, along with plenty of historical detail regarding the three main sights we visited on Ile-de-la-Cité. It was a delightful 3 hours, and we learned a great deal. The tour requires easy walking, but less than 2 miles, spread out over 3 hours. Entry to Sainte Chapelle, and the Conciergerie is provided. Notre Dame is, well, Notre Dame, one of the most visited cathedrals in the world, and an outstanding example of gothic architecture. Sainte Chapelle has the most, and the most remarkable, stained glass windows I have ever seen, a must see. And the Conciegerie, which is less well known, was quite interesting, including a recreation of Marie Antionette's cell during the Terror. There is a lot of history crammed into a small space at the very core of Paris! Well worth the time!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a nice review and for describing the tour so well for future visitors. We are really pleased that you enjoyed this tour, especially the Conciergerie which is so fascinatng and sometimes not known to some of our visitors. And of course the stained glass in the Sainte Chapelle which is beautiful beyond words - although I'm sure Thibaud found a few! We hope we'll see you again in Paris in the future.
