Patricia was perfect! Her knowledge and experience are remarkable. Unfortunately, we were in Paris during one of the train strikes, so traffic was abysmal. Patricia made the time fly as she told about everything we drove by — it almost made my thankful for the slow traffic. I highly recommend Patricia if you want the history of Paris and it's environs to come alive. She's extraordinary.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie, Thank you for your visit. I enjoyed very much being your guide and hope have the pleasure to welcome you again in Paris with your family. I wish you a nice summer.

I am so grateful to have been in the capable, strong, warm, caring hands of Patricia. We had four children in our group and she engaged them in conversation and noticed their needs (bathroom breaks, sit down, safety). This was very appreciated. Her knowledge of art and history is phenomenal. We were mesmerized by her story telling of importants events and historical figures. I could not recommend her enough. I will be referring my family and friends to her.

Patricia was a wonderful guide...she knew and shared a lot of stories and facts about the Impressionism movement, Versailles and French history! We didn't know it would be a beautiful day on a holiday weekend-the crowds were tough, Patricia helped us navigate-we would not have been able to do it without her! She was so kind and friendly-I hope to see her again and highly recommend her!

Tour: #314539, Marais Walking Guided Tour, Paris, Île-de-France, France    view tour
Date: May 15/18

Knowledgeable and interesting. Could have been a little more prepared. Could not get access to one site while another tour group did.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear M. Kweller, I am sorry for this but the entrance to the Hotel de Beauvais was not included in this tour, because it corresponds to a 1h30mn tour focusing on the full history of this place which does not fit within the 2h30mn Marais walking tour. With kind regards,

Patricia is lovely and we enjoyed our tour of the Egyptian section. She provided many insights into various objects that we would have been unable to obtain had we done this section on our own. As an added bonus she spent time with us viewing some of David's paintings. It was a perfect morning!

Tour: Panoramical City tour of Paris for Richard Fortune Group- Oct.22nd, Paris, Île-de-France, France
Date: Oct 22/17

Some of the important details were rushed. We did not have a half hour tour of Norte Dame or a quiet stop at a cafe. Both were very rushed. People in the back of the bus could not see the sites as described. The planned tour of the Eiffel Tower was to start at 4:30 but was pushed back to3:30 shortening the time spent on the overall tour. Patricia is a very knowledgeable guide and helped us gain entrance to the Tower in spite of tough security. We were disappointed,our goals were not met, a moderate succes

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear M. Fortune, I take good knowledge of your comments and am sorry for the shortening of the tour, but the reason is due to your delayed arrival in Paris from Lyon, and our meeting at 1.30pm instead of 12.30am. I did my best to meet with your requests and give you a coffee break before Notre Dame although it had not been scheduled priginally in the tour, skipping the security waiting line in the tour and respect the booking time at the Eiffel Tower at 4pm. with my best regards and thanks.

Patricia was very knowledgeable, but didn't tailor to suit our group of University students.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs O'Keeffe, Thank you for your rating, I enjoyed very much your group of students and regret the misunderstanding concerning the meeting location which did not suit them. I take good notice of it for a next time. With my best regards, Patricia

Patricia was absolutely charming as she guided us along from Paris to Giverny! She spoke of Claude Monet and his contemporaries as though she had known them personally. Her expertise and art history knowledge took us on a tour much grander than we had imagined. Her manner was gracious, professional and so enjoyable. We left her feeling as though we were leaving a dear friend! Bravo Patricia for this fabulous tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you M. Armstrong, for your so kind appreciation. It was a great pleasure for me to guide you through Giverny and share your happiness and emotions. I would be really glad to welcome you again in Paris, for other discoveries. With kind regards, Patricia

Patricia is a terrific guide! She was very accommodating to our group of six and made sure that our needs and expectations were met. She is extremely knowledgeable about the art at the Louvre - we learned so much! Also loved the tour of Versailles which was spectacular and Patricia provided a great deal of information keeping it interesting. She even went the extra mile and found where I could buy my macarons for the trip home and a great place to eat dinner. A lovely and memorable tour! Thank-you!

Since this was our first trip to Paris we were excited to see the. Lourve. Patricia was an excellent guide! We spent 3 hours in the museum and saw the highlights!! She was very knowledgeable and interesting. She even showed us how to ride the metro!! We would have never been able to do that on our own!! The lourve was very crowded and very hot but she was great in maneuvering her way thru the people!! Enjoyed our tour very much. Highly recommend!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Merril for your kind appreciation of my Louvre tour with you on monday. It was really a pleasure to be your guide. You were so interested and listening to my comments that I really enjoyed being with you and your friends. I hope you keep enjoying your stay in Paris and will be back soon, in such case I would be happy to welcome you again in the future. With my best regards, Patricia
