    Olena was very knowledgeable about the subject, and had great restaurant tips to offer. She was pleasant and ensured her group stayed together and had a good time!

    Eduardo renewed my interest in history because he was so incredibly engaging. I honestly thought I wanted to go in to check the box of the list see items and was so interested in all of the other works he showed us! Best tour guide ever! He is so incredibly bright - recommend him highly!

    Tour guide Arthur was top notch. Historical knowledge was not only on point but his ability to make it relatable and keep the entire group engaged and having fun was what really made it an amazing day.

    Really enjoyed the small group atmosphere and the picnic time on the canal was exceptional, well timed and appreciated.

    I couldn’t have imagined doing this tour any other way.

    We would love to get in touch with Arthur and thank him personally.

    Best.

    Amazing!!!! We loved the small tour size. The tour stops were well planned and covered a wide breadth of areas. Our guide, Maxim, was the absolute best!!!!! He took our group to a delightful lunch location that made the tour 5 stars!!!

    Marianne was amazing, very knowledgeable, thoughtful and very very accommodating. We went with over 15 people and she took the time to get to know our names, chat with us and offered great insight for exploring Paris and falling for tourist traps. The tour flew by as we had a lot of fun and laughs. She was very patient and answered every question with a smile on her face. Do book, worth every euro and more! You get to see the top sights with fun background stories that helps you appreciate the landmark more with no hassle. Thank you Marianne! You were my favourite host 💗

    Our tour guide Catalina ( or Catarina) was great. She was funny and had some cool facts. Skip the line tickets are definitely the way to go.

    Billie the guide for the Eifcel tower was amazing. Funny, personable, and knowledgeable. Skipping the line was well worth the price. The river cruise was nice and relaxing.

    Loved the beaches! We were scheduled for Utah and the cliffs as well as the American cemetery. We were disappointed not to be visiting Omaha- but our driver "took a wrong turn" and drove us past it. The lunch was good. The cider tasting was not. It was just a forced part to help them pay for the tour. Wish we had more time at each location- less than an hour. And I RAN through most of the cliffs as there is so much to see there. In retrospect we should have gone the night before, stayed at a hotel then rented a car to visit each site on our own timeline.

    We enjoyed our trip to Mont Saint Michel from Paris. It was a bit crowded when we went and only had a few hours to explore the place. Our tour guide was very friendly and answered all of our questions. There's a shuttle from the parking garage to the castle and wait time wasn't that long. But from the castle to the parking garage, where we'll board our bus, was jammed. We had to walk which was probably about 20-25 min walk. Keep this in mind. Still recommend it though.

    The tour was enjoyable and the audio device was great to listen to as we were going round. Only took about an hour so quicker tour than expected.
    There is no such thing as “skip the line” when you arrive; you just queue with everyone else regardless - a bit of a false sales pitch?!

    The indicated address was not visible at the GPS, thus, it was a bit difficult to find the place. There was no indications telling that meeting point was at the entry 2 of the tower. It would make everything much easier.

    We selected this tour in order to take in the highlights of these two major sights in just one day and it was a very good, convenient option. We were traveling with our 14 year old granddaughter, who loves Monet, and she was enthralled.
    Our guide, Martine, was very kind, knowledgeable and professional, and her English was quite good.

    Our guide, Magela, was thoroughly knowledgeable about the Palace and it’s history. He shared his knowledge in an entertaining way and the time flew by!

    This 1/2 day bike tour of Versailles exceeded my expectations!! My friend and I did this together on our last day while visiting Paris and I am so glad we did. It was such a highlight of our trip!!
    We met our wonderful tour guide, Claudio at the train station at 8am and then took a train to Versailles where we picked up bikes. After 10-15 minutes biking we arrived at Versailles and then toured the palace. There was a little bit of a hold up with getting in but this gave us ample time for pictures. The palace was stunning but Claudio's entertaining history really made it! After the place, we went back to our bikes where another member of fat tire tours' team had filled our bike bags and baskets with delicious fresh food from the local market. We rode another 20-30 minutes around the beautiful gardens before finding the perfect lunch spot. It was truly a feast with croissants, baguettes, cheeses, meats, fruit, veggies, a lentil salad, crackers, and both red and white wine options. I am vegetarian and my friend is gluten free and both of these food restrictions were amply accommodated (they even bought her a GF loaf). After lunch we enjoyed another 20-30 minutes bike ride back to the fat tires bike pick up/drop off and took the train back to Paris. I absolutely loved this trip and felt like it was a very good price for what was included! I would say to be cautious with timing because our half day lasted 8am-4pm and we ended up missing a reservation back in Paris, But overall an incredible day with Claudio and I would highly recommend him and this tour!!

    She was the best. The only recommendation would be for the guide to ask if there was anything the group would particularly like to see or focus. However, we did the Big 3, Mona LIsa, Winged Victory and Venus De Milo. Our guides knowledge was extraordinary and she was very engaging.
