Our private tour with Pamela was GREAT! We scheduled the tour for our first day in Paris in order to acclimate ourselves to the city, understand the transportation systems and get a feel for how the Parisians live. While we had no set agenda, our goal was to avoid the touristy sites and see some places that are a little off the beaten path. Pamela absolutely delivered.

We started our tour at Notre Dame, which was a few blocks from our hotel, and while this is a major tourist attraction, it was so worth it! We couldn't believe how much knowledge we could gain after 15 minutes there with Pamela. From there, we wandered throughout the streets of Paris where we were able to visit unique places such as Cafe Procope, the oldest restaurant in Paris where Benjamin Franklin frequented. At the end of the tour, we visited a wonderful bakery where we tried some fabulous pastries and were in a great area where we could continue to explore on our own. Pamela even checked in with us via email later that day to see how we were doing.

We can't thank Pamela enough for such a great start to our trip to Paris and showing us places we never would have found on our own!

We had such a wonderful day and this was because of the great planning of our tour guide!
Pamela is THE BEST!! Pamela was such a terrific tour guide and person with such a great personality! She is a delight! She gives so much of herself to the tour and goes out of her way before hand to do the research so we do not waste time. She is very knowledgeable and charming and makes the day so much fun! We have traveled to Paris many times, so she had to come up with unusual suggestions and she did! She took the extra time to make the day perfect We would definatley recommend Pamela to anyone wanting THE BEST,
All the rave reviews that Pamela gets are so deserved! She told us such great stories that had so much interest and left a great impression on us, that I will never forget them! Even after the tour she e-mailed me to give me information that she thought I would like to have! There is not a high enough rating to give her!!

OOOlalalal...says it all...over the top with every step of the "stroll!" From our initial encounter with Pamela and Montparnase, the fulfillment only began. This young lady pours more enthusiasm, knowledge and enrichment into ANY and all tours through her adopted city. Through researching its history and personality, Pamela ignites the Spirit of Paris in all she touches, with whomever she tours. From seniors to children, she accommodates; from "touristy sites" to the Flea Market immersion, she does it all. Timing? You choose; she delivers! SItes? You choose; she delivers! Unsure? No problem. She will plan you rendezvous with Paris, and you will be enthralled! Stroll with the best....Pamela!

What can be said about Pamela's guided tours of Paris ? First and foremost, the ability to ONLY give a 5 star rating is an absolute injustice to her vast knowledge of French/Parisian history, culture, and geography. A 10 star rating would still far underscore her abilities as a guide. Pamela brought Paris to life. This was not just a textbook tour but rather a tour of a living, breathing city of vitality. From her very first suggestion of a dinner boat tour on the Seine, the magic of Paris grabbed our souls. From the initial views of Paris from Montparnase and the "book of pictures", The city of Paris was identified in a most logical manner, beginning with the description of the snail. The artwork at the Louvre "spoke" to us through Pamela's insight. Montmartre came to life within and withou the Sacre Couer, even the hot wine at the festival was enchanting. The stroll along Ile St Louis with dinner at the cafe was as Parisian an evening as we could have ever anticipated or expected. Even Pamela's recommendation of Parisian theater was fantastic. And who could have EVER thought that the world's oldest, largest Flea market could have been so exciting, yet it too came to life through Pamela and her many friends that we met and were able to convers with. Truly, the only way for my wife and I to express our delight with Pamela, is to advise any reader that we are already making plans for Paris 2014. And I only say this so that you will have enough time to book your tours with this lovely lady, before her tours are all booked and you're put on the waiting list. Merci beau cop Pamela, see you next October.

Not sure if that means "absolutely wonderful" in French but that's what our day with Pamela was. She's so knowledgeable and easy going it was like touring Paris with a long lost friend. She gave us great insider tips for the remainder of our stay and went above and beyond to ensure our day was enjoyable.
