We had such an enriching first day in Paris with Dasha! She is so well versed in the history of Paris and its architecture. I could not imagine finding a better way to traverse the city with such an educated friendly guide. 5 stars.

Dasha did an amazing job leading my wife, myself and our 4 teenaged kids. She is incredibly warm, engaging and informed. She also does a great job pacing the tour and using the subways of Paris. I HIGHLY recommend Dasha.

Dasha was a wonderful tour guide. She is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge of Paris. She obviously loves what she does. She is also attentive to the safety of her clients. I probably would have walked into traffic a couple times while taking in the sights if Dasha had not warned me. Thanks Dasha.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas, Thank you, thank you and again thank you for everything! :) It was great to meet you! I learned so much with you! Best wishes!

Dasha's tour of the Louvre was amazing! She has a tremendous wealth of knowledge of art, and used it to show the highlights of the museum pieces, and relate it back to the earliest Greek artistic ideals. She pointed out fascinating details in sculptures and paintings that I would have otherwise missed, and presented it all in a lovely, flowing, intriguing conversation. She is also wonderfully kind and pleasant to be around. Her knowledge and personality make her a great guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tim, I hope you enjoyed your trip in Paris and you will back here again! I was happy to be your guide and really love the idea to share in the future my knowledge about this fantastic city and its public collections. Best wishes, 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.

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!

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.

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

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.
