A Recent Review of this tour

Bertrand is fantastic! I recommend what we did, which was combining this tour with the "Paris Just for You!" tour that Bertrand has, if you have the time and can use the entire afternoon for an adventure. Bertrand is incredibly kind and easy-going, and wants nothing more than to make sure your time is spent memorably. He knows his way around the typical tourist attractions, but he also knows the best shops and streets that are more quaint and intimate. He knows how to custom fit a tour. He's awesome!
