Père Lachaise is a exceptional cimetery in the centre of Paris. Susanne prepared the visit very well by searching all graves of important Belgians. Very attentive ! We also got a lot of information of the background of all important persons, included their small characteristics. The other guides for other groups also did an exceptional job. Thanks and continue this way.
