Celine was a great tour guide. She was punctual, drove safely and was very knowledgeable. 5 ***** for Celine! I assumed a "half day tour" would be longer than 55 minutes inside Versailes and two 25 minute walks in the garden. It was very rushed. Please be clear to others that half of your tour time is traveling.

Celine met us promptly at our hotel in the morning and our day visiting Giverny and Versailles began. She gave us background information on all the sites we visited and answered our questions. She took care of everything and we were able to sit back and enjoy the tour. Thank you, Celine, for a wonderful day. We appreciate all your hard work in making the tour a success.

Celine is a thoughtful and warm person. My wife required a wheelchair most of the time. Celine made the arrangements and often pushed the chair through the venue. Her humor is understated, but clever. As a guide, she knows her "stuff". There were 8 in our group and she handled everyone's questions without discomfort. We made some changes to our tours over two days, which Celine adjusted to easily. Finally, Celine is one of those rare people that you like to have around you. She is a true 5⭐️ Person.

Since Celine grew up in the vineyards of the Champagne region of France, she was extremely knowledgeable about the area, the vineyard processes and the making of champagne. She has a great sense of humor, which made the tour even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone as it was a totally enjoyable experience and day.

This was our 2nd of 2 days with Celine. We spent the first part of the 8 hours at Versailles and returned to Paris for the remainder of our time. She made every effort to show us our interests and was extremely knowledgeable about the city's attractions and "unique" driving style! Her vehicles were a brand new VW MPV the first day and a new Mercedes MPV the second. We found Celine to be very knowledgeable, accommodating, and welcoming. Don't hesitate to book her, you won't regret it.

We had an 8 hour tour on the first day with Celine. We spent about 4 hours in the Louvre with her and she could answer any question about any piece there, not just the more famous ones. She also knew how to time it so that we could see the Mona Lisa without a hundred people gathered around. We never waited even a minute to enter any attraction - Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, etc. She seems a little pricey but her prices include admission fees where most guide's do not. Can't go wrong with Celine.

The tour was very nice however we signed up for 4 hours and only received 2 1/2 hours. Maybe the issue was our entry time in The Louvre was at 10:30 and not 9 am.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas, thank you for your nice comments, the duration of the private Louvre museum tour with hotel pick-up and drop off 'à la carte' in Paris is 3h, hence the 2h30 visit inside the museum.

Celine was amazing. Having a guide who was born in the Champagne region made this experience even more special. The tour of Taittinger was great, but the tour of Pierre Leboeuf a smaller winery in Ay made this tour so special. Helene, a fifth generation wine maker, welcomed us to her 16th century half-timbered home for our wine tasting. The knowledge and passion displayed by Celine and Helene definitely made this experience more memorable. Celine's Champagne pairing recommendations for lunch...spot on!!

WOW...what a great tour and amazing guide. Celine was so knowledgable of the history of Normandy and World War II. The stories she told brought this time in history to life. There were six in our group, all with differing levels of interest and knowledge of the time, and she made it interesting for all and kept everyone engaged. I could not have asked for a better guide for our group, everyone loved her. Celine is a 5 Star Guide! So fortunate to have her a few days later for our Champagne Region Tour.

Celine was wonderful and had exceptional knowledge. It was very clear that she is passionate about the work she does. I booked a full day tour of Paris for my family and we had a great experience and learned a great deal! We were also traveling to an American cemetery to visit the grave of a relative who died in WWI. Celine provided us with a lot of information about the site, the war and also contacted one of her colleagues to provide us with even more information. She went the extra mile, exceptional!

We were a group of 6 spanning 3 generations, ages 71 to 10. The evening at Vaux le Compte was truly magical. To see the chateau and the gardens lit by candlelight was extraordinary. Visiting the Chateau with Celine was delight- ful and enlightening . Celine is a fabulous guide. She is knowledgable and interesting and funny. She gave us a tour of the historical home then took us out into the gardens, which looked like they were straight out of a fairy tale. A highlight of our family trip to Paris!

Celine is an extraordinary tour guide. We were a group of 6 with 3 generations - grandparents, parents and children (aged 10 and 11) - which is certainly a challenge. Celine was bright and articulate and funny. She kept everyone interested and was truly wonderful with the kids. Seeing Giverny and Versailles in 1 day was a challenge, but she kept us on task while allowing us time to roam and visit the gift shops. We spent 2 days with Celine, and we hated saying goodbye to her.
