Our tour to Versailles could not have been any better. I cannot imagine seeing any other way, than by private car and with Bertrand as a guide. He knows everything about the buildings, the artwork, the furniture, the gardens, etc. Oh, and the fountains..with the music. He really makes you appreciate it all, is friendly, and knowledgeable.. Our group was 4 adults and 2 teens (15 and 17 year old). They loved him and really enjoyed it. This was the perfect amount of time in my opinion to spend on a visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Rebeca, It was a pleasure to share my passion for Versailles with you and your family. See you soon! Bertrand

What a wonderful tour! We had blessing s from the heavens! Bertrand was a wealth of interesting information delivered with charm and humor. I can't say enough about the experience. From the moment he met us at our door to the end of the tour he was passionate about ensuring that we were informed about not only Versailles , but Paris. I recommend him highly to anyone interested in learning about France. One thing is sure, we will contact him again for another tour when we are in France.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Jillette, What a wonderful day we have had. Versailles was just stunning under the blue skies and the lights were fantastic. I look forward to your next visit, we have many more wonders to discover. A bientôt!

Bertrand is in the top ten percent of private tours I have taken. Punctual and well organized. Extremely knowledgeable and well read on intricacies of French history and able to communicate ideas effectively to a varied audience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Luiz, Thanks a lot, it was a pleasure to take you both to Versailles and I loved your great questions! I hope to see you soon. Bertrand
We didn't have much time for this tour but what Bertrand did was select the highlights which we appreciated. What he gave us was a short and interesting overview of the various civilizations covered by the exhibits in the Lourve. And yet in detail to catch your attention and appreciate the exhibits even more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci beaucoup!
Louie the 14 came to life in our Lourve tour. Bertrand's knowledge of history goes beyond the books and makes the characters exists as if they were just around a few years ago. Excellent accommodation and sensing of our needs even without needing to request them, and best of all, for arranging dinner bookings for us and even the transfer required.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Myra, It was a pleasure to have you and your family on my tour. It is always fantastic for a guide to have such an interested and interesting group of guests. I look forward to your next visit to Paris!

Bertrand was exceptional. His knowledge of Paris exceeded our expectations, and we had an amazing tour! He made our Paris visit truly unforgettable. If you are considering one of his tours, it's a no brainer! Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! I was really glad to take you to Napoleon's tomb and show my favorite hidden gem of Paris! See you soon
Bertrand was an excellent guide. He is very personable and he had the right balance of information and humour. He chose different interesting things to see and allowed time for us to spend on the things that I was most interested in. A great way to beat the queue and to enjoy the Musee in more depth.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Chris, it was a pleasure to take you by the art collections of musee d'Orsay and share my passion for the Impressionists with you. I hope we'll meet again!

We had a wonderful visit to Versailles with Bertrand! His historical knowledge, funny stories and experience avoiding the crowds really made this must-see attraction shine brighter. On the way back to Paris, he told us about his home town and showed us his favorite restaurant that served their typical food. Delicious! To the family budget keeper; there are lots of Versailles tours, groups big and small, many less money. Do your family a favor and go with Bertrand, the difference is worth it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Kelly, Thanks a lot for your kind words, it was a pleasure taking you all to Versailles and share my passion for that fascinating place. I hope to see you soon again!

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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kevin, Thanks a lot for your kindest words. I very much enjoyed taking you to the Marché d'Aligre and my former neighborhood for the last day of the year! I hope you have enjoyed the Christmas-only cheese (I miss it already.. :) and all the great food we got there. Have a beautiful year 2018 with Josh.

Bertrand was amazing - ages in the group varied from 11 to 41 years and he kept us all absolutely enthralled with the stories and information, including asking us questions and getting us to speculate on things and solve riddles. The time flew and we covered a lot! it really was an incredible and worthwhile tour. At the end he made sure we had all the information we needed in case of wanting to see other areas or return on another day. This is the way to visit the Louvre. Thanks Bertrand!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Catherine, Thanks a lot for your kindest words. The kids were fantastic tour companions, fun and very well educated. It also was a pleasure to chat with you and I look forward to your next trip to France or mine to South Africa!
