    My 19 year old niece and I loved this tour! It wasn't as Christmassy as I thought it was going to be but it exceeded my expectations. I thought we would just walk around to see lights and trees but it was much more than that. We saw and learned about so many beautiful places. Our guide Rachel, was engaging and piqued our interest in locations we hadn't considered. It was fun and I highly recommend!!

    Aly was amazing even before we did the tour with her communication and being super helpful. Rachel was our tour guide and took us through the Royal Palace grounds, galleries (shopping arcades), and explained history and architecture. She was engaging with our children and helpful.

    What a wonderful tour. Full of interesting stories and a world of French history. I’d recommend this tour to anyone that wants to bring a small piece of Paris home with them. Magical delightful and amazing. Our tour guide Rachel was perfect friendly and I was overly impressed by how much she knew about Parisian history.

    Clemence was our tour guide. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She was engaging with my kids and shared great history with us. It was a great intro to Paris at Christmas time. She also answered other logistics questions for the rest of our stay. :)

    Rachel did an excellent job! She was enthusiastic, fun, full of great facts about Paris, and added some unexpected extra touches. It doesn't hurt that she has lived in Paris for 6+ years--highly recommend this!!!

    Our host was Rachel and she was great at history telling and very chilled. We toured some beautiful streets with Christmas decoration and ended the tour with the best hot chocolate from Angelina restaurant! Thanks Rachel!
