About
St. Germain des Prés is one of the most beloved areas of Paris. As a former hub for writers and artists like Hemingway, Picasso, and F. Scott Fitzgerald in the 1920s, it still has a unique, carefree vibe that is unparalleled. From its lavish 19th-century Belle Époque–style buildings to its top antiques and contemporary art galleries, to its famous people-watching cafés, St. Germain des Prés is the quintessential Paris experience. Tour also includes a visit to the magnificent Luxembourg Gardens, the 17th century St. Sulpice Church, the second largest in Paris (also written about in The DaVinci Code), a bakery known for its scrumptious macaroons, and a stroll down a street known for its cafes and delicious food shops.

When my husband and I met Richard, we felt an immediate connection for our mutual descriptive love of Paris.
Richard listened to our interests, and he proceeded to follow up on everything we could have imagined.
We walked though back alleys, Luxembourg Gardens, to chocolate shops, and stopped at an outdoor cafe and indulged on scrumptious macaroons and coffee.
Richard did not disappoint with his knowledge and love for the city.
We can’t wait to see Richard again and do another wonderful tour of Paris!

We were finally able to return to Paris this September and the first thing we did was arrange a tour with Richard. Every year we cannot wait to see our friend and book a new tour. This year it was Saint Germain and it was fantastic. Let me tell you what makes Richard's tour so special . First it is his knowledge of history of Paris but through the eyes of a real resident (20+ years) he gives you the update of what you are seeing and how it has evolved. His tours are always full of surprises as he caters to your interest as you walk. To give an example we are art lovers and he always knows an interesting gallery or two to make a stop. He also will point out new trend, new stores that bring you from hundreds of years ago right to today. His tours are a must no matter how many time you have been to the city of light.

Its always a comfort to a traveler to have a friend such as Richard lead you through Paris. The Saint Germain de Pres private tour was full of surprises and new historical awareness of Paris' Left bank. We especially enjoyed the look see into Ecole Beaux de Arts. Home to many famous parisians artists, a grand hall with their names displayed on beautiful walls. We will be back again and choose a new arrondisement to adventure in to with Richard.

Richard is a warm and hospitable tour guide. He showed me the sights of Saint Germain; dear little cafes with their literary history, great places to shops, the best hot chocolate. It was like being shown around this fabulous Paris neighbourhood by an old friend. Highly recommended.

We did the City Highlights Tour with Richard the first day and loved it. He was very knowledgeable and did not waste time. We got to see what we wanted to see and had a great lesson about each landmark. My favorite part was walking around Monmartre with a delicious crepe! The private tour with the driver was KEY! My husband went on the St Germain des Pres Tour the next morning with Richard and also enjoyed his time on that tour. It was a great way to explore the city without feeling the stress of not knowing where to go. We were first timers to Paris and I am so glad we did it this way! Richard is very easy going and enjoyable to be around!

I had a great tour with Richard. What was so good was that he showed what I wanted to see and what I needed to see all while explaining what was being seen. From a quaint wine shop and wonderful stop for the best macaroons to patisseries and the grocery store of all French grocery stores I experienced a wonderful stroll. I was surpised by the Luxembourg Park, especially its size and appeal for all ages. As a Parisian with strong American roots, his explanations made sense. I would definitely tour another section of Paris with Richard. Favorite takeaway: I now have a new appreciation for the magnificent doors of Paris and am looking for comparisons at home.

What a privledge to have Richard as a private tour guide. Traveling as a single woman, I invested in two private tours with Richard. My tour of the Maraise included a wonderfully small flea market with delicious cheeses, delicate little strawberries, and other goodies. We visited a friendly and unique boutique shops, all of whom welcomed Richard warmly. It was great fun to nibble as we walked, soaking in the culture in a multidimensional way that only Richard could provide. My other walking tour with Richard was of the St. Germaine-des-Pres. I cannot say enough about this beautiful section of Paris and the tour offered by Richard. We saw all the famous cafes frequented by the literary greats like Hemingway. We stopped by Le Procope, a 17th century restaurant where great men have dined for centuries. Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson were known to frequent this restaurant, as well as Napolean! This arrondisemont is trendy and hip, with great shopping, beauty and warmth. Thank you Richard for two afternoon walks in Paris I will cherish always!
