We booked 3 separate tours with Richard, including Paris highlights, Montmartre, and a Marais pastry and chocolate tour including the Sunday market. He kept both the adults and the children engaged and interested and showed us lots of spots that we wouldn’t have found on our own. He was able to read the family well and at one point, when my younger daughter was fading he led us into a head to head macaron tasting which was just what she needed. Overall, I would highly recommend a tour (or several) with Richard.

Excellent service, attention to detail and recommendations. I worked with Richard to provide overall concierge services for my trip. He reviewed several dining options with me in advance and made three separate reservations on different nights for me with my family and friends. I asked about live music and he arranged for an evening at a Jazz Club near the Marais/Les Hales area, very close to our accommodations. Richard was great about communicating with me via text as reservations neared and we communicated by phone if I had questions. The fee for these services was reasonable and his efforts made my trip more relaxing and enjoyable. Richard went above and beyond to plan a perfect week in Paris for me.

My wife had found Richard's site online before our trip to France earlier this month. We hired him for the Paris Flea Market tour on a Saturday morning and the evening monuments driving tour the following Sunday night. He was able to take us to a location in the flea market where my wife could focus on the types of items she was looking for. We spent about 2 hours there and she was able to find several things on her "must have" list. On the evening tour we drove around the main sites of Paris while Richard gave us the history of the places and city. The main stop was on the plaza looking towards the Eiffel tower where we had our picture taken right as the lights started twinkling on the tower. Richard met us at the apartment we were staying at in le Marais for both adventures. He was easy to chat with and very informative about the city.

Richard is such a kind, caring person. I hired Richard to spend a few hours every day in Paris with my husband who has mild dementia, while I attended a workshop. My husband was thrilled to walk around different parts of the city, hear it's history, and enjoy meals at Richards favorite restaurants. As he couldn't go out alone, Richard was a life saver for me. I didn't want my husband to just sit in a hotel room every day. As an American, there was no language barrier, yet Richard knows Paris SO well. We all dined together one evening, where he charmed us with his stories of his move to Paris. I will definitely hire Richard any time we are in Paris.

Even though we are long-term visitors/residents of Paris, we learned so much new about the Marais during our tour. Richard is charming and, witty and yet he gives a sweet mix of history, culture and sometimes esoteric narration that makes for a wonderful experience. We have been subscribers to Eye Prefer Paris for years... Simply put, this is the richest, most artistically presented site dealing with all things Paris! Get to spend some time with Richard and his work. You will love both! Connie and Jim Malone (New York/Paris)

On Wednesday, June 28, 2023, I had the pleasure and honor of experiencing a guided tour, of Claude Monet’s home and Gardens, with Richard Nahem.

From the moment my son and I were greeted by Mr. Nahem at my hotel lobby, I knew we were in for a special treat.

A car ride, which can ordinarily be quiet and boring, became surprisingly interesting and fun. Almost immediately, Richard, as we were told to call him, began to focus on the passing sights. First in the buildings of the city, and then, the various towns leading to our destination, all in a warm and friendly manner, always interjecting and imparting history and tidbits of interesting facts.

Once we arrived in Giverny, our interest on this trip was peeked by him even further, as we gained a lot of knowledge and insight into Claude Monet the artist and Claude Monet the person, as well as the history of this spectacular place.

As we departed for home, Richard embellished even further, on sights we had already seen. As a matter of fact, my son, his family, and me, were inspired to have a picnic at Bagatalle Gardens, one of the sights we had passed along our journey to Giverny.

As I visit my son more than once a year, I look forward to going on another tour conducted by Richard Nahem.

With pleasure, I highly recommend
Richard Nahem to anyone who wants to have an amazingly wonderful tour, intertwined with a wealth of knowledge of history and facts, delivered in a most warm and professional manner.

Please share with everyone, especially Richard.

Sincerely,
Terri Mintzer

First time in Paris and we were so lucky to have Richard as a guide! A friend had recommended his tours to us so we were super excited to wander and venture into the city with him. We had him for a whole day and a half doing the gourmet food tour in Marais, Montmartre, and Saint Germaine. He was also able to set us up with another fantastic guide, Isabelle, for a nice long tour of Versailles after the half day tour. The walking tours were so much fun and we loved learning more about the local foods and shops while also buying many gifts to take back home. We found ourselves coming back to the Marais neighborhood to grab dinner every night as well getting some of the famous chicken Richard boasts about. Richard has a great knowledge of the surrounding area shops and of the wonderful monuments we saw. He took the time to give us some fun facts of the areas and allowed us to really take in what a beautiful city Paris is. He set us up with a lovely lunch at Le Coq & Fils before we headed off to Versailles which was some of the best food we’ve had. Everything we ate was so good and I’m still enjoying all the food and teas we bought on the tour that day. I highly recommend Richard for any future escapades to Paris for a fun and invigorating time!

Richard is so much fun! There were 4 of us ladies in Paris celebrating our 50th birthdays. We booked Eye Prefer Paris for a walking tour of the St Germain de Pres neighborhood in the 6th arr on Nov 4th. The rain did not stop us from having a marvelous time with Richard.
We met him at the beautiful & historic St Germain Church and from there he showed us so many lovely parts of the area including a delicious chocolate shop, a really old wine shop where we ended up booking a wine class for another night, and a fun, and kind of hidden, "restaurant row" passage way where we went back twice to enjoy some great meals. We saw Luxembourg Gardens and Cafe de Flores and even, per our request, turned a bathroom break into a relaxing sit down in a beautiful hotel lobby. The St Germain area is full of so much beauty around every corner and it was wonderful to have a knowledgeable guide like Richard to help us feel at home.
I started following Richard & his 'Eye Prefer Paris' blogs on Facebook 10 years ago on my 1st visit to Paris and I loved finally meeting him in person! He did not disappoint!! He is energetic and full of fun facts and we all had a great time despite the rainy day. Highly recommend!!!

I booked with Richard on the recommendation of a friend and so glad I did!
This was a trip to show my 15 yr old granddaughter the sites of Paris. She was a fan
of the Emily in Paris series and had never been to Europe. Eye Prefer Paris tour was everything I had hoped for and she was thrilled seeing all the filming locations. We got a fabulous tour of the city center by luxury car. Richard was very knowledgeable about all the places we stopped at and gave us historical facts about areas and buildings along the way. He personalized all of his comments to my granddaughter to make it a special experience for her. I highly recommend him for any of his tours since he is so knowledgeable and dependable. He is also a great photographer!

My wife and I did a tour with Richard of the South Pigalle neighborhood. We chose this tour because we had never been to South Pigalle (it's near Monmartre). We had a lovely morning with Richard. The neighborhood is a little off the beaten track, for Paris, and started out a little sleepy on a Saturday morning. By late morning the place was hopping with locals shopping at their local food places and gathering for brunch. We love the food of Paris and so chose this tour because there would be a focus on that and Richard did not disappoint. So glad with did. Richard was knowledgeable and very informative. Highly recommend
