A Recent Review of this tour

Alexandre is awesome. He was like one of the family. There were eight in our group and each of us felt like we were getting one on one attention. His knowledge of Paris and the sites ensured we saw everything we wanted to in the short time we were there. Our expectations were far exceeded.
