This tour is fantastic for anyone wanting to wander back in time, learn bits of history and really appreciate the changes over time. Ellen is a wonderful tour guide with a knack for connecting and conversation. She answered questions big and small with enthusiasm and encouraged an appreciation for learning. I can’t wait to return and do other tours with her!

Ellen took my 10 USA university students and me on this walking tour. It was exactly what we were looking for! She was so knowledgeable and offered many interesting details about Gertrude Stein, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and many others. She really kept our attention during a very hot day. The talk in the shade in Luxembourg gardens was a nice addition. We ended at a charming cafe with more stories of the “lost generation.” I will definitely book another one of her tours when I come back. Highly recommend.

Ellen was a wealth of knowledge on the history of Harlem jazz in Paris. She shared intriguing (and sometimes scandalous) information on jazz icons while also introducing me to a few lesser known jazz greats. The stories kept me eager to hear more. The walking multi-media tour is a must for jazz aficionados and history buffs!

My wife and I had a wonderful time on the Hemingway tour with Ellen. Great communication with Ellen and easy meet-up got the tour off to a great start. It only got better with the mix of history lesson and sightseeing that would be enjoyable for the most ardent Hemingway fan or someone who is just looking for an alternative to the standard Paris walking tour. Thanks Ellen next time we’ll have time to take you up on the drink at Harry’s!

Ellen gave us an excellent overview of Earnest Hemingway’s life, especially while he lived in Paris. She is very knowledgeable and a good storyteller. She took us on a good walk along the same streets that Hemingway and his literary friends such as James Joyce and F. Scott Fitzgerald roamed. Along the way Ellen pointed out some of Hemingway’s favorite cafes and bars such as Les Deux Margots, Cafe de Flore, and Harry’s Bar. I would highly recommend this tour while in Paris.
