We booked a very last minute trip to Paris, France, and we had only 3 days there. We knew that we would only have a couple of days on our own to explore the history-rich city. I contacted Chris at City Free Tour via e-mail the week before we went, and not only did we meet up with him for a group tour of Montmarte, he custom designed a private tour for us to immediately follow the group tour (through Marais and city center.) I told him what other parts of Paris we knew we would be visiting before/after our time with him, and he designed a tour to cover as many pieces of the city as we could without repeating anything we already had scheduled. We spent 4 1/2 hours discovering Paris with Chris. We saw things we never would have found without him and learned things that we certainly would have missed without him. He was professional, knowledgeable, flexible, welcoming, genuine, and helpful. He had an honest perspective of the city and the people that he willingly shared. We were hesitant before our trip, because we do not know French, but City Free Tour seemed like it would be a great way to learn about the city while also having a liaison. It turned out to be so much more than that. We felt like he was not only our tour guide, but a friend by the time we were finished. I know that if we needed anything during the rest of our time there (or on any future trip), we could call him.
I found City Free Tours via Trip Advisor, and I am so incredibly glad that I did! After falling in love with the city and the people (who were all incredibly nice), I definitely want to go back. We will be certain to call Chris when we do.
