Romain was great! He gave us a lot of great information on every place we went and stop for pictures! He contact me the day before and the day of the tour and pick us up On the Champs-Élysées where we were having lunch and drop us of in Montmartre where we could have dinner and walk to the Moulin Rouge.
We did a 2 days city tour of Paris with Romain and it was a great tour which was enjoyable for both adults and children. My children really like Romain and they were happily chatting and joking with him throughout the trip. He is knowledgeable as well and shared many interesting facts with us. He has great photography skills too. Very accommodating and considerate. Engage him if you are looking for a guide in Paris!

From a Paris start we went to Giverny to see the home of Monet. His car is a comfortable Mercedes with easy room for 6 guests and his driving is careful. Romain's English is impeccable easily understood. He related that he was previously a teacher. As we walked through the house, there are many painting copies from different artists. He was able to discuss each as if he was a trained docent at a museum. He was equally as familiar with the elaborate gardens and the lily pond.
Romain was terrific. He couldn't have been nicer, more knowledgeable or accommodating. We are already thinking about a return to France and a longer driving tour with Romain.

Romain is a gem! Courteous, friendly and most of all knowledgeable. As a former history teacher he is perfectly positioned to inform his guests about various subjects. He not only tells you what you are observing and how and when it got there, but also the mood and beliefs of the people at the time. We highly recommend Romain, you will not be disappointed.

Romain is a great guide! His background as a history teacher and his love of history makes the tour all the more interesting. He is also a great driver! ...which is very important navigating the streets of Paris! Nightly recommend!

This was a top bucket list visit to Paris for my wife. After reading the reviews on Romain, I knew he was the one I wanted to entrust with this once in a lifetime experience. He did not disappoint! Very knowledgeable in all aspects of Paris and its history. He knew more about artists and their paintings than I can even remember. Pickup a party of 5 at our hotel was right on time. I booked this 4 hour tour followed by a 2.5 hour tour of the Louvre. The place he took us for lunch was the best we had

Romain was very friendly and knowledgeable about Paris. We really enjoyed our tour. He not only pointed out the main sites but went out of his way to highlight things we would be particularly interested in. Great time.
Sara OhashiUnited States
Romain was so sweet and had in depth knowledge about the history of the city. He stopped at all of the awesome highlights and waited for us while we took a crazy amount of pictures. Thank you Romain!
Sue K.New Berlin, WI, United States
Romain was very personable and is very knowledgeable about his city. However, we were in a van for 4 hours with very dirty windows. A lot of the pictures we took were ruined because of this. We saw so much of Paris that we otherwise would have missed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sue. I feel very sorry about the dirtiness of the windows. I did clean the car inside but I couldn’t clean the van outside because I came very late from Normandy the day before. I did apologize when we met before the driving tour started and would like here to reiterate it. I’m glad that I least you did appreciate my comments.

Romain is an outstanding guide. My husband and I had a wonderful five hour tour of Giverny with him. He picked us up at our Paris hotel, provided commentary as we drove to Giverny. He was extremely knowledgeable about Monet and other Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists. He is pleasant, low key and ensured our day was fun and informative. I highly recommend him.

High praise for the tour provided by Romain! We thoroughly enjoyed the VIP treatment and felt like we learned much more than we would have traveling the city on our own. Oftentimes, after our vacation is over, we regret that we missed so much. Not this time!!! Thanks Romain!
Jenny BaughUnited States
5 stars. A guy who loves his city, who knows the history, very prepared in architecture, art and history of the city of Paris, which adapts to the needs of customers, who gave a hundred percent of its professionalism. I recommend it especially to those who want to improve the French language, to practice speaking French.

Smart, knowledgeable, excellent driver in Paris traffic. Very accommodating, not an incessant talker, but answers questions with deep knowledge.
Timothy O'BrienMorgan Hill, CA, United States
EXCELLENT!! Knowledgeable and accommodating. Roman knows Paris, and how to introduce the city to both first time visitors as well as "Old Timers."

This was our 2nd tour with Romain as we wanted more time in Montmartre and Marais. The Marais is a mixture of many cultures and he included some Jewish sites. I was moved by the plaque memorializing the babies to four years old who were sent to the concentration camp. We went to see a gallery featuring local artists. He joined us and enjoyed the show as much as we did; he had not had this type of request before and liked the experience. We highly recommend you choose early before he is booked.
Norbert BalonUnited States
Romain was a good history teacher because on this tour he was able to make the bricks and art come alive as if they with us now. The panoramic tour was well spaced between driving and walking around the site. While driving in Paris traffic (an experience in itself) if something might be interesting, he pointed it out and explained. He was cheerful and treated us as friends and set the bar for excellence as a tour guide. We highly recommend him and do it early as he may be booked.
