Anne is a rare find. My son and I only had a day in Paris, and wanted to make the most of it. We saw more with Anne in 7 hours than we could have seen on our won in a week. She has a wonderful command of French and Parisian and worked hard to make our trip very special. The particular attention she paid to my son, adjusting for his energy level and interest throughout the day was simply amazing. Anne loves her city and her work, and it shows in every part of her tours. Book her without hesitation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wesley, thank you so much! Those are very kind words and I too had a very enjoyable day with both of you. I hope your younger son will also ask to come and visit Paris, so our paths will cross again -:)

We asked Anne to build us a 2-day itinerary and were super pleased with the results. Anne brings the sites to life with her historical knowledge and cares passionately that you are getting the best tour. We saw all the major sites and beautiful historic neighbourhoods. Anne took us to wonderful spots to dine. If you are visiting Paris and want to have the best experience then you should contact Anne - she will build you the best itinerary and look after all the logistics. Thank you Anne!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, dear Travis, for this glowing review! Your family was a pleasure to spend a couple of days with and I'm glad you chose me to be your Parisian guide. Next time, you'll be my guide in Vancouver -:)

Anne was very knowledgable but more importantly she customized the day around what we wanted to see. We had seen most of the major landmarks so she took us to local spots. She gave us the flavor of Paris that you don't get just looking at the monuments. Bob Swerk. Seattle

Anne provided us with a wonderful itinerary prior to our tour and provided us with recommendations for restaurants on the night of our arrival. She was knowledge, kind, and patient. The restaurant was fantastic. On the day of our tour, some of the participants in our group wanted to experience some other options. She adjusted the itinerary and everyone expressed great satisfaction with the tour experience. We highly recommend Anne.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, dear Lisa, for your very kind words! You were a lovely party to tour with. Your teens were very dynamic and full of energy, and I'm glad to hear they were happy with the tour. I hope our paths will cross again, may be for your next music festival?

We did an extra 1/2 day tour with Anne to see the Louvre and a few more time consuming attractions. Anne did a terrific job making the most of limited time at the Louvre by helping us catch the iconic pieces and maneuver through this enormous museum. She also did a fantastic job keeping 2 teenagers engaged in the tour - which was a feat in itself! I would highly recommend Anne for any tour of Paris and its attractions!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear LeeAnne, thank you so much for your very kind words. What a dreadful weather we had to explore the Luxembourg gardens! I'm glad this didn't spoil your memories... and I hope that your lovely ladies had a great shopping session after our tour -:)

I had booked Anne C for myself personally and my family for the Full Day Paris Tour with Anne C for May 17, 2018. We were a party of 5. She was so friendly and knowledgeable. All 5 of us enjoyed our Tour and her company. We felt like we made a new friend. We also tried a restaurant she recommend to us and loved it so much we went back twice. It was located just around the corner from our hotel. It was a wonderful, enjoyable day which we will never forget. Thank you Anne C.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorie, thank you so much for your very kind words! It was a treat for me to show you around as you were a very dynamic and enthusiastic party.

Anne gave us the best day of our 5 day Paris stay-arrived promptly and with a smile-treated my 22 yr old daughter like her own-walked over 20,000 steps on our way through Montmartre,sacre couer,Latin quarters after exploring the inside of the opera house;seeing not only the Chagall ceiling but the start of a rehearsal..we experienced the metro and a bus...saw the most important masterpieces at the louvre-had time for a quick lunch-A perfect day-A perfect guide...we loved her!Thank you Anne!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robin, thank you so much for such a glowing review! Did we really walked over 20,000 steps? Getting around with you and Victoria was like touring with my daughter's friends and family. The visit to the Opera House was, for me, the icing on the cake, especially with the start of the rehearsal. So many memories! I hope you had a nice and safe trip back home and I wish Victoria all the best for her future endeavors -:)

Anne was wonderful. She is extremely knowlegeable and an expert on Paris. She came prepared with all the information we needed to have a great week. She helped us get our Metro passes and navigate the lines and trains. By the time we left her we felt at ease and ready to explore on our own. Taking a tour with Anne to become acclimated to the city was the best decision we made on our trip!

Anne was the best choice we made for our short stay in Paris! She was extremely knowledgeable, very interesting, and catered to our time and interests. Our half day tour was just perfect for the time we had in Paris! Anne also went above and beyond by helping us reschedule our train for the next morning when there was a strike that affected our plans. We would absolutely recommend her and would use her again when in Paris!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, my dear friends, for such a generous review! The most important to me was that you kept a good memory of your short stay in Paris, despite all this burden. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay with your daughter, exploring the south of France. You should come back and visit us again, as I still have lots of things to share with you.

What a great day in Paris with Anne! Even though we had just arrived after a long-overnight flight, Anne got us going on a walking tour which made us forget our fatigue. We loved taking the local transportation and buying macarons at her favorite spot as well as lunch at a local, non-tourist spot. Our group of four felt prepared to venture out on our own the next day after Anne gave us suggestions for places to see and how to get there. We now feel we have a friend in Paris! Thank you Anne.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sally, thank you so much for you very generous words! Exploring the city with you and your party was a pleasure. I was also very happy to share with you my tips and recommendations so you could feel like true Parisians, even for your short stay. I hope you'll come back some time, and that we'll meet again.

My family and I enjoyed our 5 hour tour with Anne! She was extremely helpful to this jet lagged mom who wanted to get the "lay of the land". Anne taught us the Metro, helped purchase multi day tickets, advised for best times to visit attractions and times as well as regaling us with history and stories as we moved about the city. Her guidance for meals and ideas began well before our trip as well as once our day with her was complete. She helped make my husband's 50 th birthday a success! Merci Anne!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, my dear Andrea, for such a wonderful review! Where you jet lagged? I did not notice it as all of you were full of energy. Time flied so fast and it seemed to me I was getting around with my Bostonian family -:) I'm also glad to hear that Bob's birthday was a success.

Anne was truly awesome! Her knowledge of Paris and sights made a memorable experience. She was also very thoughtful. After we parted, she saw a disturbance near the museum we were visiting and she tracked us down and made certain we avoided the area and made it safely to a cab. There was no great danger but it just goes to how kind and fun she a person she is. You will have a great experience visiting Paris with Anne!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sandi and Alan, thank you so much for this splendid review! It was really a pleasure, and also much fun, to show you around.

Anne was an amazing guide. She is thoroughly knowledgeable about Parisian history, art and literature. Her tour of 3 iconic neighborhoods allowed us an intimate introduction to Parisian life present and past. Her easy navigation of the metro and the Montmartre funicular made us feel like locals while avoiding the crowds. Her knowledge of architecture enabled us to recognize the changes at each stage of Parisian history. We had a delightful Parisian lunch. Adaptable, responsive, delightful—wonderful!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy, thank you so much for such a wonderful review! Exploring the city with you was a pleasure and Walt's questions made it even more enjoyable (I still need to investigate about the windmill wings and so many other things!). I hope our paths will cross again and I will certainly add Pittsburgh on my US itinerary. My warmest regards to both of you -:)

Anne got out trip off to a great start - her tour of the landmarks of Paris and overall orientation to Paris (including reviewing the city lay out and how to use the Metro system effectively) was hugely helpful the entire week. Anne knows her way around the city so well - we covered so much on foot, metro, and bus during our tour. She was very knowledgeable about the city from a historical and cultural standpoint. Highly recommend.

I wish I could give Anne more than 5 stars because she deserves it. We instantly bonded and became our best friend. Such a kind soul and her knowledge of everything Parisian will leave you spellbound. We got a chance to see everything we wanted to see in a short amount of time. She knew the short cuts and work arounds to everything. We even had a little problem at the train station upon departure and she stayed right there with us the entire time. Felt like we were saying goodbye to a family member.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear friends, thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was lovely touring Paris with such cheerful and happy people as you. I greatly admire how you adapted to the cold and windy Parisian weather, quite different from sunny Orlando! I do hope you will come back to Paris soon and it will be an absolute pleasure showing you around again.

We had her for 1 full day and 2 half days and she never slowed down - Traveling by foot , metro , bus - Anne was always conscious of her approach to a cathedral , garden or statue - so we could see it from the best vantage point ! Thanks for a great time in Paris, Charlotte

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, dear Charlotte, for your very generous words! You were a wonderful couple to tour with and I really enjoyed sharing my city - that you knew already very well - with you. I will be more than happy to take you to new Parisian adventures and discoveries when you visit us again.... as I am sure you will ! Give my warmest regards to Charlie -:)

We had a small group (3 people) with varying experience traveling in Paris and Anne did a great job adjusting her insights at each sightseeing location to each of us. She has tremendous knowledge of the history of Paris and the arts, which made the tour enjoyable. She guided us on the metro and gave us advice for getting around on our own once the tour was finished. Anne guided us to a crepes take-away restaurant in Montmartre and the crepes were wonderful. I would recommend Anne!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sarah, thank you so much for this wonderful review! I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of your day in Paris and I hope you'll have a great time visiting the French Riviera. Not sure crepes are as good as in Montmartre there, but ice-creams are fabulous :-)

On this full day tour, we saw every major landmark, had a Parisian lunch, enjoyed street performers and received advice on what to do with our remaining two days in Paris. Anne was the perfect host - even looking out for one of our party who had injured her foot. A stop in the pharmacy was included - where Anne deftly translated for us to be sure we got what we needed. The sites of Paris would not have meant as much without Anne's history & knowledge. This is the only way to see Paris.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Sherry, for this wonderful review! I am so glad you were able to feel comfortable navigating the city on your own. I was also very impressed by Chelsea's determination and courage despite her foot pain. I hope our paths will cross again and I wish your daughters the very best for their future endeavours -:)

Ann was delightful and very knowledgeable. She was solicitous and caring while on our tour and she went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Tess, for your wonderful comments. Your party was great to be with. I hope you had a pleasant and safe flight back home and that you managed to take some rest in the plane -:)

Anne met us at our Airbnb rental precisely on time with a warm smile and a ton of Paris history. Her knowledge & clear English made us feel comfortable in the city immediately. She showed us how to use public transportation & explained the secret of keeping one's metro ticket after using it in case you need to transfer to another station, provided a list of restaurants in each district, and provided good advice for our use in touring alone the next day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Sherry, for your very generous words! I'm so glad it all worked out! By the end of your stay, I'm sure you were true Parisians -:)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Hodson, for this wonderful review! I greatly enjoyed touring with the three of you too, and especially with lovely Zoe. Time flew by so fast! I hope our paths will cross again, in Paris... or in London?

Tour was amazing. Excellent local knowledge, especially about the neighbourhood I was in. Nice stories about things only locals would know. Really fun tour. Would definitely recommend and will be using Anna again for my next trip to Paris . Tour was tailored to what I wanted.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Kate, for your very kind words! Spending time with you was a pleasure and I also enjoyed this tour with you. I hope you managed to visit the Conciergerie in the afternoon. If not, it will be for your next trip to Paris -:)

It was my birthday last Saturday and my tour with Anne added to make it memorable. Not only does she have thorough historical knowledge but she is organized - she had an itinerary ready and she had a list of recommendations for places, restaurants and cafes. Also, because she is very personable, the tour seemed effortless and comfortable. After the tour, she even offered for me to contact her in case I have questions or need additional information. Anne is a great tour guide and I highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tristan, thank you so much for your wonderful words... and thank you also for taking my tour for your birthday!It really was a pleasure spending the day with you and also sharing a chocolate eclair in my favourite pastry shop. I certainly do hope to see you again -:)

We had a small window with two young children and Anne could not have accommodated our schedule/situation better. You will find her incredibly knowledgeable, entertaining, and overtly hospitable. It was our pleasure to have discovered Paris through Anne.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Tim, for your very kind words! I hope your lovely kids enjoyed the Luxembourg garden playground, despite the polar cold.... My best wishes for the New Year -:)

What a fabulous day we had with Anne! My husband and I spent the entire day with her, exploring the city and sights. Anne's knowledge of history and her wonderful story telling ability made the old city of the past come alive! She took us to see things we never would have seen, and explained items and objects we would have just walked past, had we been on our own. I can not recommend Anne's tours enough! It was beyond fabulous, and we truly enjoyed the day. My additional advice- wear comfortable shoes!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for these very generous words, Laurie. I greatly enjoyed touring with you too. It is always a pleasure to share my passion for history (and food!) with fellow connoisseurs!

We had the best time with Anne. She is a wonderful, knowledgeable guide and did an excellent job of crafting a tour that hit the highlights of what we hadn't yet seen and took us off the beaten path to see Paris through the eyes of local. I was pregnant during our tour, and she was very conscientious and accommodating setting a pace that was comfortable for me. She also gave us great recommendations for the rest of our trip. Simply put, she was fantastic and we can't recommend her highly enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Christina, for this wonderful review! I must say that it was very pleasant touring with both of you, especially for such a special occasion. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Paris and that your mum had a great birthday today -:)

Another excellent day with Anne as my local tour guide. We visited so many places and sites in Paris which I would never have gotten to on my own, and we covered such a lot in such a short time! Our visit to the Orsay Museum was enriched no end by Anne's training in art history, and Anne was most helpful with suggestions for what I should do on my own the next day. I came away feeling so satisfied with all that I covered in a 3-day visit to Paris. I highly recommend Anne as a local tour guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again, Michael, for your generous words! I'm also glad to read that you were happy with my recommendations for the day on your own. That said, I still have many things to share with you in Paris... so you should plan for another visit -:)

My first of two days of touring Paris with Anne was amazing. enjoyable and productive. I got to see Paris and learn about its history, art and culture from a very knowledgeable and pleasant tour guide who made it all the more special by adding that 'local color' to the experience. As an art historian, Anne knew her way around the Louvre, and we cover an amazing number of masterpieces in the time we had there. I highly recommend Anne as a tour guide, and it was money well spent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, thank you so much for this wonderful review! Spending time with you was a real pleasure and I've also enjoyed the discussions we've had on so many different topics. I do hope one day our paths will cross again -:)

Anne's tour was outstanding. Wonderful comments about history, restaurants, tips for traveling in the city of Paris. Anne was also very considerate and asked about our abilities to walk up and down stairs. We did a lot of walking but also learned how to see the metro and bus systems her English is excellent. We highly recommend Anne.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Gordon, for this wonderful testimonial! I also enjoyed touring with you and Cindy. Besides, you already had a good knowledge of the city, so it was a bit of a challenge for me -:) I hope you'll have a great time cruising on the Gironde, with delicious meals and outstanding Bordeaux wine!
