We had a wonderful experience and absolutely loved getting to see Paris with Romy! She was extremely nice and took great care to ensure we were able to hear all the great things she had to tell us about Paris. The tour was one of the highlights of our time in Paris partly because we got to see and learn about the different locations in Paris but also because Romy was an excellent guide. I would suggest doing this tour when coming to Paris and if you get the chance to do the tour with Romy, you are in for a great experience.

Very friendly and informative tour guide, we were lucky enough to go in the 1970’s Mercedes 280se which was very luxurious. Took us on a very good tour showing us things we would have never have looked at on our own. Would recommend this if you are in Paris.

Very diverse and delicious tasting with our guide Natalie.

We had our 11 year old granddaughter with us and our guide, Natalie, was wonderful with her. Natalie help our granddaughter feel very comfortable while teaching her about chocolates and other Parisian sweets. We recommend her highly.

Francois was absolutely phenomenal! Passionate, down-to-earth expertise for excellent food and wine, the people who make them and how to enjoy them!

Very nice tour

We had a great tour with Misha. She asked about our wishes and gave us many tips. It was very entertaining and really fun.
