Some compliments from our customers :
Greetings Paris Walks, I got back last night after two weeks in France, most of which I spent in Paris. I was able to go on four of your walking tours and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed them. I did Hemingway's Paris, Montmartre, Marais I, and Ile St. Louis, with different guides. All were fantastic. I learned a lot about history, architecture and literature and of course some scurrilous gossip without which no walking tour would be complete. Also, as a single traveller, I was able to meet other visitors to Paris and have lunch or tea with them after the walk. Martha from Toronto.
Thank you so much to our guide for such a delightful tour of Montmartre on a chilly, rainy day - he made it so entertaining that we forgot about the weather! Thank you. Anita from Denver
Thank you so much for enriching my life in Paris with all the wonderful, fascinating and educational walks and visits and courses. I find myself quoting your information every time I show visitors around! You have given me a view of Paris I could not have found otherwise. Jennie, who lived for several years in Paris.
Dear Oriel and Peter, We've had a fabulous time in Paris and we've done three of your tours. We had the Private Da Vinci Code Tour with Malcolm, the Montmartre with Mary Ellen, and Marais II with Jonathan. Every tour was truly wonderful and packed with history, funny stories, great illustrations and explanations. We just wanted to let you know how you enhanced our trip. Thank you, and we can't wait to come back and do more of your tours. Sher and Josef from the USA
