    We had an awesome time!
    We loved this tour and Allison was the best tour guide! She was very knowledgeable, has an enjoyable personality and made the most of our time. We were able to see all the sites we wanted and Allison gave us history/info. She was also very considerate of when we needed breaks. She took a lot of pictures for us as well! We had a great time! Highly recommend.

    Paris in A Day with Wonderful Allison
    We love Allison! She was very very accommodating from organizing to communicating every detail, to going beyond by getting us lunch to making sure that everyone was in our own walking pace to making sure no one was left behind during the tour... It was fast but wonderful tour around Paris with the beautiful, knowledgeable and wonderful Allison.

    The Great Paris Layover tour -your chance to explore with the pro.
    This tour with Allison was a great way to roam the city and getting to know it from a pro. Fantastic!
  • jd92660
    Fantastic fresh farm-to-table authentic Bistro in the 5th!
    Alison's Paris Passages tour rocks! Always reminds Rebecca and I that we need to flauner with a local professional guide who has studied with passion all of the details. We loved everything about it discovering nuances of the great passages of Paris!
  • MPConsu
    Great Local Private Tour Guide for Paris
    Loved that this was a private tour and we weren't rushed since Allison only books with one group each day. She was knowledgeable about all the areas and offered helpful advice on other things like places to eat, etc. and other places to explore that weren't part of this particular tour. A+ experience!
  • JonathanA758
    Highly recommend!!!
    Allison was a wonderful tour guide and trip advisor for us. We’ve been going through a very hectic period in our lives, and she took all the stress out of researching and planning. She customized our itinerary to suit our personal interests and the walking tours we took with her and were fun, interesting and informative. Lastly, communication was easy and responsive. Highly recommended!!!

    Great introduction to Paris
    Our tour with Allison was our first introduction to the city and what a wonderful way to begin discovering Paris. Allison was personable, knowledgeable and extremely willing to assist us in any way. She asked what we were looking to discover and personalized the tour just for us… and provided great restaurant advice! Throughout the tour she took pictures of us which created such a good memory. I highly recommend Allison as a tour guide.

    Best tours in Paris!
    “You made our trip so special, thank you! Not only were our days optimally organized, meals delicious and tours outstanding - you were a friend in Paris who helped us feel comfortable and confident when anything unexpected popped up. Can't wait to come back!” I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend working with Allison to plan your Paris trip and taking her walking tours while there. She is organized, knowledgable, and fun. Our Paris trip was planned to perfection thanks to her. We were a group of all ages 75 to 10. Allison made the trip accessible and SO enjoyable to everyone. We had the best trip! We did 3 of Allisons tours: Marche, Soul of the City, and Montmatre, they were all fabulous!

    The key Paris highlights with a dash of celebrity stories
    Allison is a fantastic guide. She gets to know you so that she can understand what you're looking for whether you're a total Napoleon geek or if you prefer the scandalous stories of history. She ensures that she knows her stuff and can tailor to you. You'll also have fun and enjoy the journey along with thoughtful stops to make sure you get a bit of rest and/or coffee so that you can bear your jet lag. I highly recommend Allison, and indeed I've recommended her to many of my friends visiting Paris. Great knowledge, customises her offering, and is extra thoughtful along the way. Huge thank you Allison.

    this really is a great tour
    Meeting Allison for our ’tour was a breeze from start to finish. She is very knowledgeable about Paris. Both the old and the new. Our tour was extensive and enjoyable. We are so happy we booked our tour with Allison. We feel that we probably saw much more than we would have on our own. We almost ran out of ‘wow’! Well worth every penny.

    A great day in Paris
    Going to the city of Paris for the first time or even the second time can be overwhelming. Paris is big! And with so much to see and do, it was comforting to know we had a tour planned to help us navigate. Allison was not only knowledgeable and well prepared, she was fun to be with. Along with the tour she gave us great recommendations on restaurants. Highly recommend Allison and “The great Paris layover”.

    Working with Allison and Tower to Bridge was a truly great experience !My visit to France/ Paris was definitely enhanced by her knowledge of the city of lights..Merci Justin G

    Fabulous Montmartre Tour with Allison!
    We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Montmartre with Allison in December. She knows so much history which appealed to my soul plus little bits of off-beat trivia that made the tour experience so memorable. She also showed us what life is like for the modern day Montmartre citizen and took us to the shops they frequent. Allison also provided recommendations for restaurants and not-to-miss locations to visit in her beloved city. I walk with a cane and Allison made sure I was comfortable walking hilly Montmartre. We highly recommend Allison as your tour guide!

    Lovely experience discovering the gems of Paris!
    Lovely tour by Pierre! Would definitely recommend it to those who are interested in learning more about the history of paris and exploring local hidden charms!
  • Alliekrueger1664
    The best tour to see the true side of Paris!
    I booked this tour with my mom, and boy were we surprised! Our trip to Paris was during the cold and rainy winter season. Yet, our tour guide Pierre made it feel like a summer breeze. Wanting more of a history lesson rather than a stop and go “look at this attraction, ok let’s go” Pierre radiated with passion about the history and literal hidden gems that this gorgeous city has to offer. We were delighted that Pierre accepted our last minute tour request, and despite the cold and rain, Pierre was cheerful, fun, and animated when describing the stops, routes, and wonderful stories. Would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for more of a local feel, and history lesson of Paris. Thank you Pierre for making our trip memorable.

Allison is EXCELLENT. As an ex-pat who has lived in Paris for several years, she has a great sense about how to relate the Paris experience to American sensibilities. She takes you to places you would not discover through guidebooks/websites, and makes them very accessible. She is well studied in French history, and paces out her curated tours perfectly. Allison is also very attentive and tailors your experience. I have been to Paris over a dozen times, and have always loved the City. But I never enjoyed it quite like I did when our family hired Allison to show us around. I will be recommending her to all of my friends.

Merci Isaac, It was such a pleasure to show you the Puces. It is one of my favorite places to go to on my own and to share it is a real treat. Not as many people take the time to do the Big Marche tour, but boy it's worth it. Loved your photos and can't wait for your next visit.

What a great tour! Marche Madness is the perfect tour for those who want to uncover a part of Paris that most visitors don't see - the local markets. If you love shopping and hunting for the perfect treasures and souvenirs (and even feeling a bit like a local), this tour is for you. Allison is an excellent guide and you can tell that she loves and appreciates Paris. She's very knowledgeable about French culture and traditions. We will definitely be taking another tour with Allison the next time we are in town.
