Owner description: You want the best experiences possible during your travels, right? At Babylon Tours we are dedicated to providing you with the best that each of our cities has to offer. Our local English speaking guides are experts on the landmarks and museums that they’ll visit with you. They will share a mix of historical information, scandalous stories, and surprising details whether you’re browsing the Louvre or strolling Amsterdam’s canals. At the end, you’ll have enjoyed yourself so much that you won’t even realize how the hours have passed, and you’ll be on your way to becoming a local expert yourself. We’re more than just storytellers. Our young, passionate, and engaging guides approach touring in a different way. They will bring a personal touch to each tour, adding their own favorite anecdotes and tips along the way. They are there to listen to you, to answer your questions, and to create a dialogue – unlike other tours where they just lecture you as you go along. That’s the whole reason

My wife and I met Arnaud on the free walking tour of Paris put on by Sandemans (also worth checking out) and we enjoyed it so much that we decided to pay for a tour of the Louvre with him a few days later. He only brings small groups through the Louvre - there were 6 of us when we went - and he schedules the tours for down times when the museum isn't quite so packed. It was our first time at the Louvre and we were very glad that we had a tour guide. Beyond enjoying Arnaud's stories, knowledge, and anecdotes about the museum and its works, we also just enjoyed hanging out with him. It was really nice to be able to hit the main highlights of the museum without having to think too much about navigating the space (it's SO BIG). You're not going to see everything (not even close) in a 3 hour visit, but Arnaud will make sure you see the most important stuff. Highly recommended.

It was my husband's and mine first time in Paris, we had tours of both the Louvre and the D'Orsay with Arnaud. He was able to make the most of our time hitting the highlights of both musuems in the five hours we had with him. He was so knowledgeable about both musuems with facts both historical and anecdotal. It was a fabulous day and we would highly recommend Arnaud! When we return we will be looking to book a tour with him again.

My husband and I took two tours with Arnaud on our honeymoon. We initially met him on our free Sandeman's tour in Paris and then he gave us a private tour of the Louvre a few days later. Arnaud has great energy and is very informative. He gives very interesting and lively tours. We highly recommend him!

My friend and I, along with our 17-year-old daughters, stopped in Paris for a day and a half on our way from London to Barcelona. Although my daughter and I had been to Paris twice previously, our experience had pretty much been limited to the major tourist areas. I did some research on private walking tours and chose Babylon's Montmartre tour. We were fortunate to be assigned Fililpa as our tour guide as she was absolutely amazing. Filipa met us near the Moulin Rouge and that is where our tour began. Although she is not a "native" English speaker, Filipa's English was nearly perfect and I had no difficulty understanding her. She was incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgable about Parisian history and culture. If you want to hear some excellent stories about Van Gogh, Picasso, and other former Montmartre residents, let me tell you, Filipa can tell a great story! She is very animated and funny and our 2 1/2 hour tour went by quickly. She connected very well with our teenagers and kept the tour interesting for them. At the end of our tour Filipa took us to her favorite creperie and then walked us to the metro station and assisted us in buying our tickets. Excellent customer service! If you are planning a trip to Paris, take a couple of hours to get away from the insanity of the Eiffel Tower and the Champs Élysées to enjoy the beauty of Montmartre with Babylon Tours and Filipa. You will not be disappointed!
