THANK YOU FRED! This was the perfect last minute decision we could have made on our last day in Paris. My mother is handicapped so we wanted to do something where she could enjoy the whole city and monuments without walking. Fred was so kind and thoughtful in this, he even had a small stool for her to help get into the car. I highly recommend Fred and this your service. This was the perfect way to get your family photos at all the must see spots in Paris. Thank you Fred! 10/10 would recommend!

My grandchildren loved excellent guide. Small flat at the start. Came early for good seats. We are made to wait at a place then the staff makes the people who are in front of the bus get on! As a result, we find ourselves relegated behind.

Our tour guide, Fred, was magnificent. Knowledgeable, professional,social, and accommodating. The best one day tour we have experienced anywhere.

Great tour round dine fascinating Parisian chocolatiers. Patrick Roger is exceptional and the architecture an added bonus.

A great time to share to discover Parisian neighborhoods Super organization, and even with the rain we had fun bravo
