Dasha loves Paris and she loves arts. Considering she is about to Ph.D. in Fine Arts at Sorbonne - she really knows both. Very strong energy - get ready to keep up. Outstanding guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ilya, Thank you! I spent a great time in your company as well and very pleased you loved my tour! Best wishes, Dasha

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brian, Hope you are going well! Thank you so much for your comments! I am happy you appreciated my tours! Thank you again! Dasha
We really enjoyed our tour. Dasha was delightful - engaging, informative and highly knowledgeable. She was able to engage and impart knowledge with us all - ages 11-49. The only slightly disappointing thing was the speed of the tour - and I guess this is due to the need to impart so much information - Dasha has so much to share! We highly recommend the tour.

Our day with Dasha was just fabulous. She has a very broad base of knowledge and so many interesting pieces of information to share. Her command of the English language is amazing - using words we often don't. We could not recommend her more.
Brent IngersollUnited States
My family had Dasha as a guide in the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Dasha is knowledgable, engergetic and quite a lovely person. Her knowledge of the galleries was exceptional and she made it interesting for everyone, which wasn't easy because some of us have art knowledge and others have none at all. She lead us through galleries of the Greek and Romans to the impressionists and spoke proficiently on it all. Do not hesitate to use Dasha as your guide, you will love it!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dears Brent and Deby, Thank you so much for your lovely and warm words! All my best wishes to your family! It was very cool to be your guide!
Katherine SperryUnited States
Dasha was an amazing guide. She provided such great historical information for us during our tour and was a pleasure to spend 4 hours with.
Tom CroucherUnited States
Dasha was the most knowledgeable tour guide of our trip, a real expert. We enjoyed the Louvre a lot, but there are a lot of people. When we got to the D'Orsay we were able to hear all of Dasha expertise and enthusiasm on the impressionists. We saw a lot in our tour all of it with expert commentary. 5/5 as a guide, 6/5 for the impressionists.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, Thank you SO MUCH for your comment! I was really enjoyed to read this and it was a big pleasure to share with you my knowledge’s about art! Best regards, Dasha

Darya is an excellent guide. This was our second tour with her as a follow-on to the previous day's tour through Montmartre. Her insights into the local life around the Marais district were informative, insightful and fun. She is a bright, charming and engaging individual. She was very helpful to us with additional ideas, points of interest and general advice about negotiating our way around Paris. She is terrific. If we ever take another trip to Paris, I'll hope to find Darya again for another tour.

Mitchell AdamsUnited States
Our tour with Dasha couldn't have been a better experience. Dasha had the perfect plan and executed the plan in a very logical and intelligent way. Her knowledge was amazing and her presentation was so antimated and enthusiastic. Her love of the city was very obvious. We all agreed that Dasha made the tour a huge success. I would be remiss if I didn't mention Simon our driver. It was very clear that a big reason everything went so smoothly was because of Simon's knowledge of the city
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mithell, Thank you so much for your warm words! I am very happy that you all enjoyed my tour and was happy to share this beautiful city with you. Kind regards, Dasha
Annette KanterUnited States
We were short on time and requested a quick 'highlights' tour of the Louvre! Dasha was great! She was on time, organized, knowledgeable and passionate when describing the art! She whisked us through to the main art pieces we requested along with many other well known and interesting pieces! We highly recommend Dasha!
Debi ArmstrongUnited States
Great intertwining of history of the Louvre buildings and the important artwork on display.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Debi!

Very interesting guide...knowledgeable about the painting and sculptures in the Louvre. My teenaged grandchildren said she was very personable and passionate about the art. They said they felt like she was a friend...and they would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol, Thank you so much for your suggestions and so lovely comment! I am very happy your've enjoyed my tour! Have a nice trip into Europe! Kind regards, Dasha
Victor VelazquezUnited States
She was awesome. Great energy and she adapted the tour in real time based on our comments. She's very knowledgeable on the historical significance of many sites but also able to share a Parisian's view of the city from a non-tourist perspective. We traveled to multiple areas and she was efficient in approaching the city. She was a pleasure to spend 6 hours with and we would book here again. We wish she had joined us for dinner / that's how much we appreciated time w her. You won't go wrong with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh thank you so much Victor! It was great to spend time with you and your daughter! Best regards!
what a day! Dasha is a great company for our day tour in Paris. She has shown us Paris like never before. thank you for being such a good host for us.
Mary ParisUnited States
Dasha was charming, knowledgeable and friendly. We were a very tired group of six and Dasha managed to keep us energized and engaged. We were able to get in and out quickly at so many places and the historical details that Dasha provided was insightful and educational. The tour was outstanding.
Devon KellyUnited States
Dasha was a wonderful guide for my family. We had my my adult children and 2 grandchildren. I had asked her to teach us how to use the metro, and her information was so helpful. We then went by metro to the City center, and she explained all about the History of the area. Since she is studying art history, she is incredibly knowledgeable. She gave us all kinds of local knowledge which included a wonderful ice cream place as well as suggestions for lunches. I highly recommend Dasha!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Devon, You are so nice and amazing!!! :) Thank you so much for your comment and your good energy! Have a wonderful stay in Paris! My best, Dasha
Gonzalo GonzalezUnited States
Dasha was amazing!!!! We had 4 hrs in Paris and with the driver took us to see all the highlights of this city! She is incredibly knowlageble! This is largely explained by her education and her work as a curator!!! She was engaging also with the boys (15,12,10 yrs/o)!!! Five stars without a doubt!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gonzalo! Thank you so much for your comment! I am happy you’ve enjoyed our tour! Have a good stay in London! Kind regards, Dasha
David NeiblumUnited States
Dasha was great! Deep fund of knowledge of Louvre and art history. Highly recommend!!
Matthew ElliottUnited States
Without Darya our trip to the Louvre would have been half as fun and infinitely frustrating. She was extremely knowledgeable, very personable and did a great job showing us several important works overlooked by the masses. She also gave us a great restaurant recommendation for lunch! Highly recommended!
Lynn K.United States
I thoroughly enjoyed my tour with Darya. She was on time, friendly, well informed and customized my tour as we went along the route. In fact, she did the tour entirely in French at my request so that I could practice my language skills. I would definitely book with her again. I have been to Paris many times and learned so many new things with Darya. It's expensive of a single traveler but was well worth it. Merci!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Chère Lynn, Je vous remercie pour votre commentaire! J'ai vraiment apprécié votre compagnie car vous êtes quelqu'un de très curieux et ouvert d'esprit! Vous êtes bienvenue pour mes prochaines visites! Bien à vous, Dasha
Randall Weber-LevineUnited States
Darsha is fantabulous (fantastic + fabulous). Her deep blue eyes reflect an even deeper well of knowledge. The impressionists are her area of expertise, which she slowly unveils with a humble touch. We loved the tour even though Darsha thinks Cezanne is the best of the impressionists! Everyday, we paint the picture of our lives; it's important we continue to do so with broad strokes of the brush.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Randall, Thank you for your wonderful comment! I really enjoyed your company! Best regards, Dasha
Darya was a wonderful guide. We started right on time, she had a lot of information to share with our kids. She delivered on focussing the tour on our kids, as we'd requested, and was really keen to make sure they were interested in what she had to share. We will definitely request this friendly, warm, and attentive guide next time we are in Paris!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sandeep, Thank you so much for your comment! I am very glad you liked my tour of the Louvre! Have a nice stay in Paris! Best regards, Dasha
Really great tour! The way she pulled all the elements of the museum together was spectacular! Super knowledgeable and fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Darren, Oh! Thank you so much for your comment! It is a real pleasure for me! Best regards, Dasha
Christopher ChiarUnited States
This woman was truly astounding in her presentation and tactical reconnaissance of the many areas of Paris's public and lesson known locations. Her energy allowed for me to experience the city a fast rate and she gave so much of herself during the tour. I am very happy for contributions she made to my understanding of the city. Truly an amazing ride.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christopher, I am really happy you appreciate my tour! Many thanks for your wonderful comment and your energy! Best regards, Dasha
Darya is an extremely informative and accommodating guide. Her tour swept us through the Louvre at a perfect pace, without rushing, but without lagging still. A very efficient way of tackling such a giant collection of artworks. Definitely would recommend. Absolutely loved it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael! Thank you so much for your comment! From my part, I really enjoyed your company and will be happy in the future to do another tour for you! Good luck for everything! Best regards, Dasha
