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!

Excellent tour guide, knew Paris well, willing to customize tour to meet our needs both before and during the tour. Highly recommend Genevieve to others.
Harvey MooreUnited States
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!
Carl CromeFrilsham, BERKSHIRE, United Kingdom

Judy BuschUnited States
Genevieve showed me everything I wanted to see and more. I would highly recommend her and will use her when I return with my boyfriend
Maggie JonesUnited States
Genevieve was so perfect! She was flexible and always easy to contact. She taught us how to use the metro and bus system. She has so much energy and knowledge. I think a walking tour to the major areas of Paris is great for your first day in the city. Genevieve helps you to quickly get comfortable in the city. We are so grateful for the experience she gave us. The tour itself was excellent, but the help it provides throughout the remainder of the stay is invaluable! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Kevin HoytUnited States
Genevieve is Fantastic, very polite and full of energy
Kevin HoytUnited States
Our day was perfect we couldn't of asked for a better tour and a chance to view France. Perfecto
Robert ONeillUnited States
Austin ArnoldUnited States
Genevieve was fantastic! We asked for her to show us around Paris and she did a phenomenal job. She met my wife and I at the hotel at 10am and took us all over Paris until 3pm. She created an amazing experience and took photos of us the entire time. She has a great spirit and love for Paris.
Jeff KernUnited States
Genevieve was a wonderful guide. Truly loves the city as was evident as she took us around the city. She developed a tour around specific interests we had, as well as hit the iconic landmarks. Took us to many off the beaten path areas to give us a great vision of local Paris. Would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in an introduction to Paris.
Hank KuykendallUnited States
We started our first trip and first day in Paris with Genevieve at our apartment in the St. Germain district. We walked to Notre Dame and she asked us questions that helped her formulate a game plan for the day. Because it was our first trip, she wanted to give us a wide view of the city. I would encourage people to start their trip with her; by the end of the day we knew so much that we felt comfortable around the city. Genevieve was perfect! She taught us Paris, Art, Food, Culture & Metro.
Paige HuttoUnited States
Genevieve far exceeded all of our expectations!!! The tour was outstanding! Genevieve was very personable and added the local touch I crave! I hope she will come visit me in Charleston SC so I can show her my beautiful city to her just as she portrayed Paris to me! Thank you for making Paris unforgettable!
Janet PierceUnited States
We had one day to see Paris and Genevieve made it happen for us. We saw everything we wanted, and more. She even asked us what our plans were for the rest of the day and gave us ideas for restaurants, etc., and showed us where the bus stops were we would need, and then called us later to check up on us. Thank you, Genevieve, very much !
Judi McCanUnited States
We had a wonderful time in Paris with Genevieve, she showed the main sites and also the back streets and the not so tourist places of Paris, I took this tour with my teen age daughters and they loved the places she took us and the places suggested for wonderful pictures sites and poses. Genevieve was also available for suggestions on restaurants and activities un the other days which made us feel we had a friend in Paris looking after us. We look forward to visiting Paris with our friend Genevieve
Elizabeth KellyUnited States
Genevieve gave my daughter and me a very personal tour of Paris. It is wonderful to see Paris through the eyes of someone who knows and loves the city as much as Genevieve. I could not imagine seeing the city without the personal and historical stories that she so splendidly shared with us.
Chris O.United States
Genevieve was great. We wanted to do something different, so she took us off the beaten path on a tour through Monmartre, seeing where the greats worked. She also made sure we hit some of the main sights. It was a pleasure. She is knowledgeable and street-wise.
Vijaya Rani KaMalaysia
We had an incredible tour with Genevieve. Being a family of 7 with our age group ranging from 10 -74, Genevieve made sure that all of us had a wonderful time exploring Paris. The highlight of the tour for my kids was of course the visit to the PSG stadium on their request!! Genevieve is an extremely kind, knowledgeble and humorous guide. Overall, we were very satisfied with her tour AND the fabulous photos that she helped take for us too.Thank you Genevieve!!Hope to meet you again soon.
Susan StewardLong Beach, CA, United States
William StantonUnited States
Genevieve is a terrific tour guide. We did the highlights of Paris with Genevieve as a walking tour. Genevieve was excellent. Her ability to guide us around Paris to see the primary monuments via walking, bus, and trains is exceptional. I will warn you that there is a lot of walking on this tour and Genevieve sets a fast pace to get the tour done in the five hours. It is great for those in reasonable shape. It is a challenge for those that are not. I recommend Genevieve without question. Bill

Tom RaymoUnited States
Geneviève was terrifically helpful in providing a first day orientation to Paris. In addition to showing us some of the major sites, she also identified great places to eat in our neighborhood, made sure we understood how to use the Metro, and assisted us in getting the right Museum Pass for the week. Very helpful!
Janet CortesUnited States
Genevieve was a great guide. She accommodated to all my needs and went above and beyond to make sure that I arrived at the destination ok by talking herself with my taxi driver and making sure I took the correct bus after the tour. She is very knowledgeable of the history of the landmarks of Paris and was a great friend to spend the day with in Paris. I had a very short time in Paris but thanks to Genevieve I got a very good overview of the most important sites. She is also a great photographer!!
Sallyann GillickUnited States
You can't go wrong booking a tour with Genevieve! Genevieve is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Paris. We gave her a very long list of places we wanted to see and things to do on out first trip to Paris. She accomplished pretty much everything on our list in the 2 days we booked with her. We were given tips on what to do when our tours were over. She is very personable, you will fell like you've known her forever and she will be your personal photographer so you can be in your pics
Ron BosherPlano, TX, United States
We can not recommend Genevieve more highly. We emailed her prior to coming about our tour request and she was excellent in all respects in customizing our tour and was always very prompt in responding. Her knowledge about Paris seems endless. She was a delight and we felt like close friends when we parted.
Stephen NovakovichUnited States
Genevieve was a fantastic guide! Her comprehensive knowledge of Paris and ability to conduct the tour at a perfect pace turned our long layover at CDG into a highlight of our trip. Well done! Highly recommend!
Martin WhiteUnited States
Genevieve was the best tour guide ever! She went above and beyond to accommodate our family of 6 from the USA, including arranging a breakfast for us on the morning of our arrival into Paris. Her tour is a perfect way to get acquainted with the major sites of Paris. Our highest recommendation!
Kimberly GapinskiHouston, TX, United States
Genevieve is a fantastic guide! She taught us so much about the construction and reconstruction of Paris - from the city layout to the builders' influences. Genevieve walked us through the history of the Parisian landmarks and introduced us to the City's modern customs. She made sure we understood how to move about the city and insured our safe return to our hotel. A very full, wonderful day. Thank you!
Genevieve was so great, we enjoyed her tour of Paris tremendously. We liked her and found value in her knowlegde, she helped us feel comfortable in this huge city, she made our time with her feel special and included interesting aspects which will help us to negotiate the city and enjoy the local food and localities with much more understanding. We would recommend her to anyone visiting Paris who enjoys understanding its history, with the many wonderful places to visit, and an array of yummy food to try.
Jody Kent -BrinerUnited States
Genevieve was so knowledgeable and easy to be with. She answered our questions and it was enjoyable to be with her. We would definitely recommend her
Genevieve provided an outstanding tour and intro to Paris. We spent the day together. Genevieve has an in-depth understanding of the city, knows her history, her architecture, and has some unique stories to tie into Paris sights so they became memorable for me. She even knew which rooftops to use for those incredible views of Paris. Plus, Genevieve was able to get me comfortable on the bus and metro so for my remaining days in Paris I was able to explore on my own. Thanks Genevieve - it was wonderful
Stephanie Marie RaagasUnited Arab Emirates
Thank you so much Genevieve! Our tour in Paris France was great and fantastic, every detail of our tour was excellent. Genevieve was kind, funny and me and my husband was very entertained.. I reccomend her on any kind of tour in Paris.. thank you so much Gen��
Kelly KatcherUnited States
Genevieve was so much fun as well as informative. I asked her to refrain from the main touristy spots. We went to well known areas but because we started early, we nearly had the places to ourselves. I have a ton of great pics as she is more than willing to snap some memorable shots. I learned quite a bit of French history as well. I can't say enough wonderful things. She is organized and will map out your day perfectly if you tell her what you want to see. Well worth it!!
Wayne YoshigaiUnited States
Genevieve is a friendly, personable and professional guide who took the time to learn what we wanted to see and do in our 5 hours. Then she customized our tour to ensure that we saw and did everything on our list at our pace. Two of us had visited Paris many times before, and this was the first visit for one. Genevieve made the tour fun, interesting and relevant for all of us. And her dining, shopping and sightseeing recommendations were spot-on. We will definitely engage her again on our next visit!
Benjamin CohenUnited States

Genevieve was a great guide. She spent three days with us touring Paris. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. She took a lot of photos of our granddaughter which made her trip very special. She also told us about wonderful places to eat and visit on our own after our tour ended. We were able to see all of the places we had on our list prior to our visit plus a number of places we would not have visited without her guidance. We highly recommend Genevieve for your visit to Paris.

Karen FaheySanta Rosa, CA, United States
Genevieve was an excellent tour guide for our family of six ages: 6,21,32,,45, 65! She was bright, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible, a true blessing for our diverse group. We enjoyed a tour of Paris using a collaborative itinerary, but she will provide her own for you if you are a first time visitor as were some members of our family. I appreciated her astute recognition of the little ones tiredness, and her ability to coax and cajole us through an exciting day. Thank you Genevieve!
Robin LittmanUnited States
What a wonderful day we spent with Genevieve. Knowledgeable, caring, and professional in every way. We spent five hours with her on a private, individualized tour of Paris by car and she did not miss a thing! Her tour was efficient and we made the most of our time spent with her. Her recommendations for meals was much appreciated and she even directed us to exquisite food markets and helped us with our selections.
Extremely enjoyable tour. Eye-opening experience of Paris and Versailles. Madame Genevieve was excellent and provided lots of valuable information to us first time visitors of Paris. Was very accommodating, flexible and patient. Also have to mention that she showed us the best places to buy cheese, french bread and other local delicacies. Can't recommend her highly enough.
My family of 5 are first time visitors to Paris and Madame Genevieve proved to be the best guide to take us around. She was very accommodating, flexible and very knowledgeable about her city. We can't recommend her highly enough. Also special mention goes to Muhammad, the private driver employed by Madame Genevieve for taking us around Paris.
Kurt WagarUnited States
Genevieve was outstanding and not only showed us the tourist side of Paris but got to know us and showed us parts of Paris that interested us and we would never had seen or done without her. We gave her total freedom to run the tour because that is what we paid for and so glad we did!

Genevieve was an outstanding guide and my wife an I would highly recommend her to anyone. We became comfortable ride the metro and buses. She pointed out the places to see and recommended places to eat. She spoke excellent english and when she took us to the roof patio of Lafayette Square next to the opera we were amazed. A excellent view of Paris. She did ask if we had any specific requests and we said its her city and we trusted her judgement; we were very happy with her tour.
Susie DurantUnited States
Our group was so glad we scheduled this tour - it was definitely a five star experience. Genevieve was absolutely wonderful. Instead of the "main" attractions, she took us to neighborhoods and markets we wouldn't have found on our own, organized a picnic by the Seine and taught us to use the buses to get around on our own. She knows Paris and its history and is friendly, engaging and a superb guide. Highly recommend!
Charles P.United States
Gen was particularly attentive to our 11 & 13 year olds and made tour interesting for them.We would use her again and not hesitate to recommend her. Thank you for showing such interest in us and making our trip fun.
Je t'aime Genevieve!! We were in Paris for 2 days. We booked with Genevieve and she made our tour personable and fun with our 5 year old Ethan! Within the 5 hour tour we felt like she was a close friend by the end of tour!!! She took us to off beaten paths, as well as superior landmarks! Walking through some residential areas made you feel like you were part of Paris and felt at ease with local Parisians! Great photos to prove our awesome trip and many taken by Genevieve! Highly recommend Genevieve!! :0)
Ting Tina ChenHong Kong
We are family of 3 with a young child (6 years old) and the "whirlwind" tour of paris with Genevieve can only be described as "Magical". We were promtply picked up and efficiently guided around the landmark of Paris whilst at the same time, taking in the beaten track that are of special interests to us. Genevieve was thoughtful, knowledgable, considering, and caters very well to the specific needs of her clients, she would be the person we return to if and when we visit Paris again.
Sharon WhiteUnited States
This tour was absolutely fabulous. Genevieve is so friendly and flexible. She really knows her way around the city and was willing to take us to see all of the things on our list. She told us so many things about the history of Paris. It was so much fun. She told us how to get to our restaurant in the evening and helped us with transportation to the airport. We had my inlaws with us and she was so helpful in accommodating for them. This is a tour you cannot miss. I would highly recommend!
Mark WestonUnited Kingdom
Genevieve was charming, entertaining and informative. She followed our request to get a good overview of the city and its sights to the letter. We covered a lot of ground and then felt confident to get around Paris on our own during the following days. It was a perfect introduction to the city.

June HowerUnited States
Genevieve led us on an outstanding tour. She is energetic, and totally focused on giving us the true "Parisian experience." She went the extra mile to give us time to explore after the tour, and have the driver pick us up several hours later. We were referred to her by a friend, and I would highly recommend her to you as well. We were totally satisfied!

John ArpUnited States
Genevieve is an excellent guide, knowledgeable about both the city's major sites and the lesser known gems around Paris. She also arranged for some changes specific to my trip that made it extremely memorable and special. I recommend her as a guide with complete confidence that you will love your stay in Paris even more because she was part of the experience.
Karen G.United States
Genevieve provided our family with the best 2 days in Paris. By spending 2 days with Genevieve we were able to see the major sights and the hidden treasures. Genevieve provided us with fabulous dining options and arranged a very special birthday dinner for us. Her love and knowledge of Pairs was apparent. Not only did she take care of us while we were with her, she made certain that we knew how to navigate the city without her. Meeting her will be a fond memory.
We all had a wonderful day with Genevieve and George ( our driver ) the tour was both fun and informative and we would not have been able to see all the sights that we did unless we did this tour. Genevieve was especially knowledgable and got the whole family involved. I would highly recommend both Genevieve and Tours by local to family and friends . A great day had by all Merci.
Heather St PeterUnited States

Awesome tour by Genevieve. She helped us make the most of our short time in Paris, with beautiful skyline views of Paris, wonderful knowledge of history and landmarks, having a gourmet picnic lunch in the park with view of Eiffel Tour just to name a few. We were three generations of family, and she made it enjoyable for everyone. Thank you Genevieve. The Plunketts, Doucettes and Heins

Karen BurgersonUnited States
Genevieve was fabulous and showed us more then we ever expected.
On our first, very short visit to Paris we decided to chose a guide and Genevieve certainly didn't disappoint. We were thrilled with what she was able to squeeze into our 5 hour session. A must for those with a limited time frame. We jumped from metro to bus and explored many parts of Paris that we would have otherwise missed. Our tour was tailored to our needs and Genevieve made it a time to remember.

Margaret HallUnited States
We had a great time with Genevieve, although we had a hard time keeping up with her! She is full of energy and managed to pack a lot into the time we had with her. We liked the fact that she took photos for us so that we could enjoy the sights. She also helped us plan what we wanted to do the rest of the trip. We suggest you do this your second day (after a recovery day from the flight) -- helps to acclimate yourself to Paris. Merci beaucoup Genevieve! The Halls
Fantasic. We would never have got around to see what we did if it wasnt for Genevieve. To also ask a simple question about posting wine back to Australia Genevieve took time out to help with all the posting arrangements. Thanks Genevieve.
Mary Beth TrombleyUnited States
