Alex gave us a private tour of the Montmartre and Sacre' Coeur are of Paris. He's a delete and provided us with insights into the area that are routinely missed and ignored. We saw areas that seemed very isolated that one would not know you were in a major city like Paris. It had windmills and a vineyard. What a a delightful experience.

We had a wonderful day at Versailles today with Alex. He was everything we had expected from reviews and more! Super friendly and down to earth, amazing with our kids (9 years old and 12 years old), and just overall pleasant and entertaining.

We all learned so much, and with colorful and intriguing stories. Our kids were mesmerized for 6 hours straight. We would opt for a tour with Alex again in a heartbeat!!

Don't miss out on an opportunity to tour with Alex in Paris, Barcelona or anywhere in the world...you will not be sorry that you did!

We just sent a day and a half with Alex in Paris and wish would could spend more time with this amazing guide and human being. Yesterday we did a half day walking tour of Paris and were amazed at his knowledge and passion for the history and architecture of this city. You can tell he is the real deal. He told wonderful stories, provide interesting details and showed us more in a half day that we could have seen in a week on ourselves. Today he took us down to the Champagne region for the day. Again, he provided wonderful stories and great detail into the art and science of champagne making. Alex is incredibly flexible and does whatever he can to make sure you not only have a great experience, but the best possible one. No question goes unanswered and all done with charm and smile. Aside from being an amazing tour guide, he is just a wonderful human being. Don't miss out on a great opportunity. Book Alex NOW!!!!

THIS REFERS TO A TOUR OF BARCELONA WITH ALEX

Fascinating 2/2.5 hour tour around the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona with the highly entertaining & theatrical Alex. Lots if interesting history facts to place the city in its current context, along with quirky customs & leisure pursuits.
Highly enjoyable - the time flew by.

Alex is an excellent tour guide able show you the sights in a unique way - yes, you've already seen this church but did you know that... - and seems to have lots of unexpected stories up his sleeve. We started the tour quite late in the afternoon and were already tired from walking around, but his contagious energy and good mood made the tour a great experience! I highly recommend!

Our trip to Versailles with Alex was a real highlight of our trip to Europe. Alex is a very pleasant person to spend the day with and also a wonderful, wonderful story teller. He had all of us (including 2 boys aged 14 and 9 years old) enthralled as he brought the stories of the four Louis' to life. It was like reading a book you didn't want to put down! The best tour I have ever done! I can't recommend Alex enough.

Thank you Alex for a great time together! We did several trips with him and would absolutely recommend each one. He made excellent suggestions to help plan our visit but was flexible and incorporated all of our needs very well. We loved exploring the small streets but our favorite trip was out of Paris to the Normandy beaches to learn about the D-Day landings. Alex really brings stories to life, he is always friendly and we would absolutely recommend taking tours with him.

My wife and I visited Paris for 17 days and, during our first 7 days, we took 3 private half-day tours with Alex: The First Timers Tour, The Marais Tour, and The Montmartre Tour. Our apartment was in the Latin Quarter, so we decided we’d discover that on our own. We find it hard to understand why Alex only gets 5 stars…he should get at least 10!!! Having never been to Paris before, Alex gave us the perfect introduction. I take endless videos and ask endless questions and he never seemed the least bit impatient. Somehow he still managed to show us everything…largely because he graciously gave us all the time we needed. And as if that weren’t enough, at the end of our tour in Montmartre, he introduced us to the best crepes we’ve ever eaten. Thanks Alex!

Alex's tour of the neighborhood of Montmartre was certainly one of the best tours I've ever experienced. My friend and I were only in Paris for two days and we wanted to experience as much as possible! His morning tour was efficient, professional, personal, and best of all, fun! He was incredibly knowledgeable and obviously passionate about the history of Paris and I truly felt as though I had a better understanding of the city in only two and a half hours. He also took us to an amazing cafe with crepes and wine where he introduced us to the owners and made us feel like locals :)
