Our guide Clemence was wonderful - she was very knowledgeable and informative and had a pleasant disposition. Our private tour turned out to be for only the three of us including my two teenage children who very much enjoyed Clemence’s historical story telling.
Manuella did a great job showing us the sites of Notre Dame, the Sainte Chapelle and the Conciergerie. She was very personable, and knowledgeable. We would recommend her!
Our private tour-guide, Marie Christine, was a veritable font of knowledge and we enjoyed every part of this tour. She was a Parisien who had lived overseas and was highly educated so one felt one received an unbiased historic account of these three amazing places. I'd highly recommend this tour, well worth the money.
Our guide was well spoken and very knowledgeable about all three locations. The tour is just about the right length of time to be a good overview of the sights. It was a very enjoyable morning.
This is an informative and interesting tour. The meeting place was a bit confusing and finding the guide amounted to asking around until you bump into each other. Norte dame Cathedral is a bit of a tourist trap but the Sainte Chapelle and Conciergerie were great.
Excellent tour guide, extremely professional and has done this type of work for many years. We were the only 2 taking this first tour of the day so were able to ask any questions and have the guides full and immediately attention. We've been touring Europe for the past month and this guide was one of our favourites forgive us as we forget name, too long a holiday : Would highly recommend this tour to everyone as the history was amazing and were lucky enough to visit this Cathedral during a service. We were also provided a headset so never missed any information during the tour whilst service was in progress. Thank you for such a professional informative tour, we wish we had this guide for our entire trip.
Short, concise and time saving! On top of it, the chance to see a great monument.
Excellent tour. Marie-Christine was wonderful. She was prompt and very knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed Notre Dame, Saint Chappelle, and the Conciergerie and having Marie-Christine allowed us to full understand the history of these amazing landmarks. I would highly recommend this tour and MarieC
