My family from Texas (a total of 8) had a fantastic time with Gustavo. Very knowledgeable on our tour of Paris. The Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, wonderful lunch and Notre-Dame. He know Paris history very well. Learned so much from him. Our four boys (ages 16, 15, 14 and nine) were fascinated . Gustavo picked us up in a very nice/comfortable van. His knowledge on art and history are amazing. I highly recommend Gustavo. He is taking us to Normandy later this week. You can't go wrong with Gustavo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the positive feedback. I'm glad to spend the day with all of you! Until next time..

Gustavo is truly a professional guide. He is extremely knowledgeable, attentive and flexible. When he picked us up at our hotel, We wanted to change the itinerary and see a couple of sites he does not normally guide for...and he adjusted without any hesitation and was amazingly knowledgeable even on places and history of places he does not normally tour. Highly recommend.

Our tour of Normandy was made great by Gustavo. He was not only a great tour guide, but also a great conversationalist. We had a wonderful time and learned a great deal, our appreciation for the men and women that sacrificed so much for the cause of freedom growing enormously. Throughout the day Gustavo placed what we were experiencing in context, explaining war plans and individual sacrifices and helping us understand what we were seeing. Thank you, Gustavo for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Date: Jun 14/19

Gustavo was very knowledgeable and provided not only detailed information about what we were seeing, but also offered a unique insight into other aspects of life and work in Paris. He was a last minute stand in for another guide and worked with us to accommodate the mobility limitations that we have. He was very well organized and clearly understood the history and influence of these very different sites. It was a very memorable part of our Parisien experience.

What a complete pleasure this full day tour was. Gustavo was on time (actually early) and trip return was about 9.5 hours later. All comfortable in car. Started with Fountainebleau, then lunch in village of Barbizon, then to Vaux le Viscompte. I was able to really understand the history here with Gustavo's information. I was able to ask all the questions I needed. His restaurant recommendation was great (ate at La Boheme). HIGHLY RECOMMEND this wonderful experience.

Date: Dec 26/18

Gustavo was very knowledgeable about the city and about the art pieces in the Louvre. However, our experience was far from perfect. When he picked us up at the airport the van was not big enough for the seven of us--even though I had specified several times the size of our party and paid the extra money for a bigger car. Also, we traveled with a physically disabled child--something we had also specified prior to booking and Gustavo was not good at navigating the Louvre with a wheelchair--wasted time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Alex, I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced throughout the tour. Rest assured that your feedback will not go unnoticed to prevent issues in the future. As a gesture of goodwill, I'll give a 300 USD refund. Thank you for your understanding.

Date: Oct 24/18

Our guided tour through Monet's home and private garden was the highlight of our trip. Walking through the garden made our visit to view Monet's paintings much more magical. Gustavo did a great job explaining the history of the Impressionist movement and the techniques that the artists used. During our visit to Versailles, Gustavo's explanation of the French Revolution was fascinating and left us with a desire to learn more about it. We enjoyed learning about the Revolution through the amazing artwork.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I highly appreciate your feedback Brigitte. Thank you so much!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the four hour tour of Paris with Gustavo because we saw areas of Paris that we would not have seen otherwise. Gustavo's command of European history is impressive as his ability to convey it in an interesting manner. We only wished we had booked him for more tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Brigitte. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour in Paris. Hope to see you and your beautiful family soon.

Gustavo picked us up at our hotel and took us on a tour to Fontainebleau and Vaux-le-Vicomte, with lunch stop at Brabizon. Gustavo made the day quite special, both by his anecdotes whilst driving but most especially by his wide and enthusiastic knowledge of both locations. All in all a worthwhile and memorable tour.

3 impressive sites make this tour a great value. Gustavo has the knowledge & personality to present their histories in a concise manner. The setting of Chenonceau & the architecture of Chambord alone make it worthwhile to book this tour. Experience a fascinating day in the Loire Valley away from crowded Paris.

Great day out of Paris with Gustavo. Highly recommend this tour. Fontainebleau was not crowded compared to Versailles and compares favorably. Nice lunch in the village of Barbizon then a must see -Vaux le Vicompte. The chateau & gardens are impressive as is their history. Book this escape from the crowds in Paris.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Micheal!

Our tour was excellent and I would like to thank Gustav for a wonderful experience. He arrived on time and explained what we would see and some of the history in comfort at our hotel before we left. Initially we walked around the gardens where he explained how they were used by the court and the construction of the tiers etc. We then went into the palace and his knowledge came to the fore as he described what we could see and explain the lives of Louis 14th etc. It was 100 times better than a headset.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words and gracious support. This means a lot to me. Very much appreciated.

I had very high expectations for this tour, and Gustavo exceeded all of them. He is very knowledgable about everything we saw, and provided amazing narration that "made my trip." Gustavo is also very friendly, and knows the ins-and-outs of Paris. Whether or not one takes the city tour, or the Versailles tour (or any other) with him, he will help create good memories for a lifetime! Thank you Gustavo!

What a fantastic tour! Our guide, Gustavo, picked us up on time in a beautiful, roomy vehicle & drove us to the Loire for a full day tour of 3 chateaus. Gustavo's has a great command of the English language and was easy to understand. He was extremely knowledgeable about each site we visited. Gustavo shared his knowledge in a fun way & we thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with him. I highly recommend booking with Gustavo, a highly qualified guide with a great personality!!
