What people are saying about Luxembourg Gardens

Ana was a exceptional guide. We were taken to places that we would not have normally visited. We learned a lot about the way Parisians live and the places they visit. Ana was friendly and easy to relate to. The only negative was the meeting point. Not being familiar with the park we were waiting at the wrong gates not realising they were not the main gates. Luckily Ana was still waiting when we had realised our mistake.

Guide was exceptional
