My friend and I hired Christophe of "Driver-Guide-France" to take us on an all day guided tour of Versailles Palace, gardens and village. Christophe made all the arrangements for a day that was memorable and suited our desires perfectly. We were on a timed schedule to see the palace, but the rest of the day was organized around his recommendations and our personal desires. It included a picnic lunch on the waterway below the palace. Christophe was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He was a careful driver, and his vehicle was very comfortable. If we had had more time we would have used him to take us to Giverny on another day.

We are a couple looking mostly for a driver to drive us through France for around 10-12 days. When we were planning this trip, tried to communicate with some drivers. Christophe replied immediately at my email ! So after a few emails, we arranged a call and were lucky enough to find out that he was not only a driver, but also a tour guide! As soon as we arranged his payment plan , which by the way was quite reasonable (he even gave us a discount due to the crisis), Christophe was super responsive and kind enough to ask us about how we imagined our trip, so that he plans our itinerary according to our preferences! Eventually, Christophe planned for us a 12 day trip from Paris to Nice, with several in-between stops (Dijon, Lyon, Avignon, beautiful villages and local vineyards). When we came to Paris, we were already so excited! Christophe was beyond every expectation, extremely knowledgable, professional, kind, pleasant, careful driver! In Paris we saw Monet's gardens in Giverny and Versailles and several other monuments inside the city.. On our way to Dijon, we stopped to Vezelay and other hidden beautiful spots which only a local should know.. On our way to Lyon, he took us to several vineyards for wine tasting and then to Lyon he guided us through the whole city.. Then the same in Avignon to the Palace of poppes and other significant sightseeing.. and finally in our last stop in French Riviera he drove us to all the famous and luxury cities (Cannes, st tropez, nice, monaco, antibes). We visited so many museums, view spots, art points, cathedrals... Amd he knew everything about them! I can't express with words the experience that we had in France! He truly found a balance between history, art, fun and local spirit. Christophe took this trip to a whole new level! Thank you for everything, you are great!!! Also, the car is luxurious and very clean!

Bonjour Elena & Konstantinos, Thank you so much for your great review , it is so nice of you ( and so fast too ) I really appreciate that,especially after almost 18 months without working. It really cheers me up ! Indeed it was great to visit to spend 2 days with you in Paris, then cross the country (from Paris to Nice and spend 4 days in the French Riviera,one of my favourite spots in France ) . A 10-day tour allowed us to see/visit as much as possible and I'm so glad you've appreciated the balance between history, art, local culture . We've been very lucky,indeed regarding the actual sanitary context and the new rules recently established in France ! we've been able to enter (thank to our sanitary passes to each place you wanted to go : Giverny,Versailles,Louvre, Musée des Beaux-Arts in Lyon,Picasso Museum in Antibes ,to me it is a kind of miracle (plus as a bonus,almost no rain at all during our trip ) Again thank you for your kindness and I hope to see you soon again in Paris ( why not in 2024, when the Olympics Games will take place in Paris ? ) I wish you all the best in your future endeavors, Kindest regards Christophe Driver & Certified Tour Guide in Paris

We literally travel all of the world and we always hire a private car and driver to take us around. We don't use group tours. We found Christophe after communicating with multiple tour guides for our February, 2020 visit to Paris. Christophe was the only guide to respond and maintain communication via email and even phone calls. He quickly responded to each and every request. And he asked for a reasonable deposit unlike some of the other guides who wanted a substantial deposit. We engaged Christophe for a half day city tour and a half trip to Versailles. To sum up in a few words - he was fantastic. He is knowledgeable, friendly and easy to understand. He was flexible in that he did the tours our way. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He made our third visit to Paris a memorable experience.

Christophe is a fantastic guide! I consider myself lucky to have picked him. Christophe had all of the basic expectations covered: He has fluent English, he is a good driver (we drove through the Arc de triomphe roundabout, I know) he was organized, he was punctual, he was attentive, he was able to think on his feet and improvise. Given he can cover the basics, he went even further and had the ability to give thought to the finer touches of tourism. He tailored the tour to what my tastes were, which he learned by talking with me in-depth over email months before I arrived in Paris. If you give Christophe an idea of what area of history or Paris city life you are interested in, he will not only remember it, he will detail the tour to your interests.He was also willing to stop and take pictures, or let you take pictures, of whatever you wanted. Also worth mentioning is Christophe's graciousness. He did not mind when my plans changed last minute and I ended up going on my tour with less people. He gave me a discount to account for the difference, even though it was a loss for him and no real difference to the tour. I appreciated that. Further, when he knew I would be in Paris before our tour, he personally delivered the multi-day museum pass he bought for me to my apartment so I could use it *before* our tour. Very, very, very gracious and helpful! I will be back to Paris, and I will use his services again.

Bonjour Robert, Thank you so much for your wonderful review and the great pictures you've posted ! Indeed the Museum Pass is great for maximizing your time in Paris ! and relatively cheap once you realize the number of sites where it works ! The pictures you've posted show not only all the museums we've visiting together within a single day : the Louvre museum ; the Saint Chapel & La Conciergerie and the wonderful museum of Cluny ( where the famous taspestry of "The Unicorn " is exhibited ! ) but also where you could go on your own ,such as La Malmaison and the Invalides ,both connected with your favorite hero : Napoleon 1St ; thank you again for sharing all these information regarding that very helpful Pass ! I hope to see you soon in Paris again ! kindest regards Christophe
