A Recent Review of this tour

Paris is loud, overwhelming, and hard to navigate for first and second time visitors. Sara provided us with an efficient tour of the major highlights - Notre Dam, Louve, etc both by walking and using the metro. We especially enjoyed the quick trip into Ladure to get a macaron.
