Very interesting for medieval history and NOTRE DAME

Excellent Boris! perfect knowledge of our history; great erudition and very good approach to the public. But the medieval walk lacks a bit of "ruins" or remains of period buildings, concrete things to see. In the end, a little too theoretical.

Excellent tour!

Very knowledgeable tour guide. My son and the guide really got along and we both learned a lot!
