The tour was outstanding. This was our first trip to Paris in almost 40 years. Genevieve helped us see all the significant sites and was interesting and informative. We were impressed not only with her knowledge, but with her candor and her humor, which made for an enjoyable day. She was responsive to our needs and our interests. I thought she was an exceptional guide and I would highly recommend her.

Genevieve was fantastic! She is the perfect blend of knowledge and fun. She gave us a great Paris experience. We saw numerous Paris monuments and museums as well as shopping and restaurants. She taught us how to use the bus and metro system. She's not afraid to ask someone to move to get that perfect camera shot but kind to help the blind woman on the bus and help her find a seat. Thank you for doing such an amazing job showing us your beautiful city.

This was an amazing tour. We changed the agenda numerous times during the tour and she accommodated every change we requested. It was like taking a tour with a family member.

Genevieve was a great tour guide!! She took us to places in Paris that we wouldn't have seen under normal circumstances. We had a wonderful time, her local knowledge of the area was impressive. We would definitely recommend Genevieve as a tour guide on your visit to Paris!!!!
We loved touring Paris with Genevieve! She was knowledgeable and pleasant and knew her way around town well! Thanks for your help! Sofia and Michael

Our group loved Genevieve. She was funny, energetic and very knowledgeable. Her experience living in Boston was wonderful as she compared and contrasted French and American cultures.
Maureen SheehanUnited States
Genevieve is very knowledgeable and capable as a guide for Paris.

Just took a five hour walking tour of Paris with Genevieve and could not have been happier with my tour. Genevieve made the most of our time together and covered much of what the beautiful city of Paris has to offer. She kept the tour moving in terms of sights and information, and provided both historical and current insights about Paris throughout the tour. Truly and wonderful day in a wonderful city with a wonderful tour guide! Merci Genevieve!
Daniel GalliUnited States
We had a very good experience with Genevieve. She arrived at our hotel early and we planned out our trip around Paris. We decided to use public transportation so we could become familiar with the system and Genevieve was very helpful in explaining the routes and points of interest. We moved around for five hours visiting various places of interest. Genevieve also included an visit to the top floor of a high end department store which offers a great view. We were very happy with this experience.

We were a group of 14 family members, with ages ranging from 2 to 72, visiting Paris to celebrate my birthday party. We were blessed to have had Genevieve for our guide: a cultured, well travelled and a real woman of the world. She was patient, funny, warm and was able to customize a program that catered to all our needs in spite of the big range in ages. Hers was a trip that went beyond the touristic to include the authentic touch of all that is locally and typically French.

Knowledgeable regarding the city but that's about it. More concerned about what's happening around her in the bus or on the subway train.

Fabulous tour by a superb guide. I highly recommend Genevieve as a tour guide for anyone visiting Paris … especially a first time visitor. She is warm, friendly, knowledgeable and very flexible. She is well travelled herself so she can provide useful insights what to do, where to go, where to eat, and the best ways to get there. Genevieve is the best … we plan to be pack in Paris in June and expect to tour with Genevieve if she is available.
Kathleen HeiseyUnited States
Genevieve was an excellent guide. She showed myself and my husband so much that we wanted to see and know and more. We now have more places to go back to than we can fit in our next ten days in Paris. And she gave us guidance on how to get to each one. Above and beyond what we expected. Cannot say enough about how great this experience was. Merci, Genevieve
Joe ConnerUnited States
Genevieve was a wonderful guide in this beautiful city!! Very knowledgeable and pleasant! We highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her again. Tres bien!!
Genevieve is a very kind and friendly. She showed me various faces of Paris and took me to interesting spots that I had never imagined. I enjoyed listening to her and talking with her. I had a wonderful time! She made me very happy and I came to love Paris more and more. I hope to come back to Paris in the future and to walk with her. I'm sure we can enjoy ourselves.

We had a delightful tour with Genevieve who demonstrated excellent guide skills navigating the sites with ease while sharing their history with great knowledge, engagement, and humor. We experienced the beauty within and tasty treats of a department store, received a "locals" suggestions of extra things to do, and have photo memories due to her wonderful photography skills. In return we left Genevieve, a highly recommended guide, an unparalleled memory of a Southern girl's meeting with a pickpocket.

Although our arrival was delayed, Genevieve was able to make up for lost time. We visited all of the iconic landmarks from Notre Dame to the Opera House. We sat outside a cafe sipping coffe and bought pastries from a patisserie. We also stopped at a food market to purchase bread and cheese for the train ride back to London. We rode the metro and buses just like the locals and Genevieve was a fountain of information. In a few short hours, we created very special memories. Genevieve is the best!

Genevieve gave my wife and I a truly amazing walking tour of Paris and all of its "must see" monuments. She met us at our hotel and inquired about our prior visits to Paris and what we wanted to get out of the tour. It was very "personalized" and 100% perfect for what we wanted, a nice mixture of seeing the sights, having a superb lunch at a Bistro followed by a stroll through the charming St. Germain and the Latin quarters. Genevieve took many pictures using our cell phones giving us memories for life!

We threw a lot of curve balls at Geneviève today. 97 degrees. Sick kid that stayed at hotel. Melting teenagers. She handled it all with professionalism and flair. She even took the teenage girls shopping because that's all that sounded good with air conditioning. The info was great but her ability to adjust magnificent! Highly recommend.
Great full day tour, seeing all the sights of Paris. Found Genevieve to be very knowledgeable and insightful and knew what would be the best way to maximise our time in Paris. Would thoroughly recommend her to anyone visiting Paris, lovely lady.
Kimberly SpazianiPittsburgh, PA, United States
Genevieve was amazing! Lots of great knowledge about Paris, but not boring and stuffy. We inadvertently booked our tour on Bastille Day, which meant it was a little challenging to travel to some of the "regular" tour sites. Without hesitation, Genevieve shifted the day, so we could see as many sites as possible. She kept things moving and entertaining...we laughed a lot! Do yourself a favor and book a tour with Genevieve...you will not be disappointed!
William EubanksUnited States
Our family , including two teen girls, thoroughly enjoyed Genevieve's tour of Paris. It was on our first day in Paris and she really helped us get comfortable & familiar with getting around and giving us ideas on where to go back to. She is a master of thinking quickly on her feet, adjusting the tour as needed. A real pleasure to be with and very knowledgable. It was a perfect way to start our vacation in Paris. I will definitely try to book a tour with Genevieve on our next visit.
Gail AzaroffUnited States
What a great day in Paris! We covered so many sights and enjoyed learning about the history of the city. Geneviève was so knowledgeable and knew how to navigate the city. She taught us how to use the bus and the Metro. The tour was a great introduction to Paris. We highly recommended Genevieve as a tour guide!

Genevieve lets you set your own pace and decide what to see and not see. WE had an enjoyable day with her.
Jeff ShankmanSouth Africa
Genevieve is a must to become familiar with Paris, it's well known places and those many lesser known gems such as local restaurants, secret shopping areas, folklore stories and insight into Parisian life. She is kind and patient and also has an eye for those "Kodak" moments. Having used guides in many cities, I can honestly say that she is not a clock watcher and enjoys herself as much as we did.
Chad FrederickUnited States
Our walking tour with Geneviève was perfect. It was exactly what we were looking for and when we return to Paris we will definitely book another tour. Genevieve was very knowledgeable on the history of Paris and what it is today. We toured several areas of the city giving us the confidence to move around freely on our own with confidence. We spent 11 days in Europe and this was the highlight of our trip and the wonderful pictures she took of us will be memories we cherish for years to come.
Jennifer HicksUnited States
Genevieve is a great guide-knows Paris well, adapted our tour during the day for bad weather and teenager requests (shopping, eating crepes in local spot). She prepared us for the rest of our week in Paris as we went back and spent more time in neighborhoods and parks she introduced to us. Also wanted to take a cooking class, she set up a macaroon cooking class and all the other participants were local Parisians - very enjoyable nice, fun-highly recommend! Excellent guide! highly recommend she and tour!
