With Paris just a couple hours away by train, we decided to take a day off from our week in London to visit for a full day. Honestly, using Private Tours Paris was the best choice we made. The ease of not having to arrange for metro tickets and fumbling through the subways was alone well worth it alone. But... More

We took 2 tours with Private Tours Paris-a half day tour of Versailles and a day tour of Paris with Sophie as our guide for both tours. 6 of us were on the Versailles tour. We had all been there before, but Sophie added new information and was very knowledgeable. 2 members of our party could not walk far, so... More

I cannot fully put into words how much our experience with Private Tours Paris meant to our family. Our tour was very personal to us and from start to finish the team at Private Tours Paris were exceptional to work with. They accommodated every thing we asked of them. When I began planning I was unsure of how I wanted... More

Absolutely agree with the positive reviews of Private Tours Paris. Would certainly use them again. Our guide Corinne picked us up and drove us first to Versailles. Completely skipped the line, which was easily a mile long when we finished. She proceeded to explain the various Kings and their eccentricities. It was raining pretty hard and we did not really...

The best day of our trip to Paris this summer was our day spent with our Private Paris tour guide Frederic who did an outstanding job escorting us to Giverny & Versailles. He picked us up our party of 7 in a very comfortable van and drove us to Monet's home in Giverny first. Along the way, he told us... More

While in Paris we used Private Tours for a day tour of Normandy and would definitely recommend this company. I cannot say enough about our guide Frederic, he is so knowledgeable, friendly and really made the day for our group of 7. The places we visited were very moving and he filled us in on many things none of us... More

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
