My teenage daughters and I had a fabulous trip to Versailles and Giverny with Marlene as our guide. Marlene, a local, was on time (slightly early) for our 8am pick up from our apartment. During the journey to Versailles she was engaging and informative and had excellent English. Given our booking in advance and early arrival, our ticketed entrance time... More

Always helps if the driver will introduce themselves and not have to ask for the name. That was setting the standard of driver engagement. Despite being clear we had children with us the 'tour' started with some points from the driver as to how it not ideal with children. Despite our requests we went to 2 small vineyards and 1... More

We were going to be in Paris for eight days and knew that we couldn't and wouldn't see everything we wanted. We compared lists of "must see" attractions and settled on Versailles and Giverny. We also knew from previous experience that it can be very difficult to access major attractions without a guide. We decided to take the full day... More

Highly recommend this company. Booked a tour for my mom and I to see as much of Versailles as possible avoiding lines. Claudia was our driver/guide. She picked us up at the hotel, gave us lots of history info before we got to the Palace. She was friendly and knowledgeable, her English was excellent. We had plenty of time in... More

I had limited time in Paris and it was my first visit. This tour was a great way to see all of the obvious points of interest and also helped me get oriented with the city. Money well spent in my opinion.

We were beyond satisfied with our Private Paris Tour with Claude. We did a day trip to Versailles and Giverny and a 3 day tour to Normandy. They are an extremely efficient company who return emails promptly and helped us rearrange our schedule around a strike at Versailles. Claude is no tour guide he is a historian. He explained past...

We booked a day tour to Normandy as our 12 y.o son is very interested in anything World War and he was the one who told us about what happened in Normandy during WW2. After checking reviews from different tour company, we decided to go with Private Tour Paris as it has the best almost all good reviews. It is... More

We were very impressed with Private Tours Paris. Emails were promptly replied to and their assistance in arranging our private tour of the Somme was excellent. Our driver/guide Ameryc was wonderful and his efforts in making our day so successful was his knowledge of the specific Somme areas we wanted to visit. We have no hesitation in strongly recommending this... More

Our first days was a Normandy Day Trip and the second day was a tour of Paris with a stop at the Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral. Day #1 - Our guide picked us up at the hotel on time and seemed...
