My daughter really enjoyed herself. Our guide took us to a great shopping district. It was the perfect time because there were huge sales everywhere we went. I even bought a couple of things.
I have a 13 yr. old daughter and my son's 18 yr. old girlfriend with me in Paris....hmmmm I KNOW I need to take them somewhere cool to shop. This was it! Everybody had a great time, found cool things no one back home will ever have, and shopped like a french girl!! Had a great translator with us who showed us around. I loved walking and seeing all the small local shops away from the common and EXPENSIVE tourist avenues. She listened to what we wanted to find and took us to the them. I personally love vintage and she took me to a beautiful, high quality shop that had Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada etc. one of a kind items. Tons of great clothes and accessories to look for that piece that speaks to you. Very good prices. I scored a vintage Chanel necklace that I will cherish. A unique way to spend a few hours in Paris plus we got a great tip where to find the best crepes for lunch after!! Had a blast and bonded with the girlfriend and scored big with the fussy 13 year old daughter!!
I booked this tour for my 18-year old granddaughter and I to take on our first day in Paris. We had the tour guide, Sandra, all to ourselves, and she was GREAT! My granddaughter was especially interested in shoes, and Sandra helped her find not only wonderful shoes, but also some fantastic clothes as well. She took us to places we would have never found on our own, and she was truly a terrific shopping guide. She knows the places to go for every budget and what you are looking for. Not only did my granddaughter find wonderful things, but so did I. Our time with Sandra was definitely worth the money and a highlight of our trip. We highly recommend this tour, especially for first-timers in Paris. We went on the tour the first day in Paris and were glad we did because we later went back to some of the shops and did even more shopping.
Emmanuelle was wonderful. She asked lots of questions before we left the meeting place to get an idea of what my daughter was interested in, what her style was, and what our goals were for our shopping expedition. She knocked it out of the park and my daughter came home from Paris ecstatic with a whole new (and very reasonably priced) wardrobe. Emmanuelle even recommended some items that my daughter loved that she would never have considered on her own. An excellent time was had by both of us.
Our guide was wonderful, she was very knowledgeable and able to tune right in on the girls taste, she asked the right probing questions and was very patient.
We intentionally left this one for last so our daughter remembered her "shop to you drop" trip to Paris! We were pleased and she was thrilled.
I sent my 2 girls (13 and 16 years) alone on this tour with the guide. She was awesome according to the girls. I think it helped that she spoke such good English. But she very quickly worked out what Dana and Sienna liked and they both came back with bags full of goodies!
This was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. Our tour guide is a Fashion encyclopedia! She not only took us to the best shops/boutiques in Paris but she taught us so much about the Fashion Industry. We came home with fabulous clothes/shoes and a wealth of fashion knowledge.. Both my daughter and I agree it was one of the BEST days ever!
Our experience was terrific. Even though my 11 year old granddaughter was jet-lagged and homesick, our guide was unfailingly patient and we felt like we had our own personal shopper. It was a wonderful introduction to Paris fashion!
We ended up being the only ones on the tour-which was great. She asked my daughter what she was looking for and in what price range. we were in stores we would never have found on our own. There was no pressure to buy. My only complaint is that we ran out of time. definately recommend this tour.
Our guide was fabulous! My girls got so many cool clothes and accessories. They were thrilled! Our guide was great at picking things out for the girls as well. I would highly recommend
Emmanuel was wonderful with our daughter. We had been in Paris a week, and didn't seem to find any "teen" clothes - everything was either adult designer or H and M. Emmanuel knew just where to go for a stylish 14 year old on a budget. I also appreciated that Emmanuel had our daughter try on clothes that are normally not her style. While she didn't purchase any of those "different" items, our daughter sure had fun! I would recommend this shopping tour early in your trip. We found so many interesting places we would have liked to return to, but were leaving the next day!

Our niece was ecstatic about this tour and she came away with purchases she would not likely have found on her own. The guide took the time to determine her style sense and what she was interested in before setting out. Because of last minute cancellations it was a personal shopping experience that she will not soon forget.
Sandra was terrific! Kate LOVES the clothes she purchased based on Sandra's advice.
The girls loved it. Our guide explained what is in now and what is coming and then took us to several shops, encouraging the girls to try on different items as we went. We got some great things!

Fun outing! Sandra is knowledgeable about fashion trends and is friendly and helpful. She first talked to my daughter about what she likes and wants, and the quality of items we're looking for. We ended up at several chain stores that we have seen in the US, but not necessarily in our city. I enjoyed Sandra's company and my daughter ended up with a lot of useful pieces she'll enjoy wearing. Sandra has a great job as a "shopping strategist". I'd love to see more of her in other cities!

My daughter age 11 and I had a wonderful time shopping in Paris with our guide, Sandra. We found lots of wonderful clothes and really enjoyed our shopping! Our guide was flexible and tailored what we did to our desires -- boutiques vs. larger stores special needs a prom dress, etc. I would higly recommend this tour to anyone with a teen or tween!
Kathy L USA
Our guide was great! She took my niece and I to perfect places. I don't know how she knew what my niece would like -but, she did. When booking this, I thought it was a bit "over the top"... I mean, we aren't the "personal shopper" type. However, it was one of the highlights of the trip for my niece! I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

We had a great experience! Our guide was a strategic planner and had great insight into the latest fashion trends. She encouraged my daughter to try on clothes she may not have otherwise picked out and she ended up bringing home some very chic clothes and accessories that she has enjoyed wearing back home. We had a special experience because the afternoon tour we had booked was full so we had a private tour in the morning instead. We would definitely recommend this tour that our guide Sandra made so interesting and fun.

We loved this activity! Our guide was amazing and fun. Obviously, it's hard to find cute places and clothes in Paris that are cheap. She showed us where and how, it was awesome!

My 16 year daughter and her friend loved this tour. The guide was wonderful. She really clicked with the girls.
Sandra was great. She took us to stores off the beaten path where my daughter was able to find some nice items to bring back home. She is full of information, really friendly and helpful!
We had a little mix up with the time and date but they made every effort to make it a wonderful experience for my girls.
Emmanuelle was a wonderful guide. She had a great working knowledge of current trends and what was offered at the local shops. She interacted well with our older teenagers when selecting stores to match their shopping expectations. Emmanuelle even offered her fashion advice and picked out clothing that she thought would look great on the girls. Although my friend and I went along on the trip to supervise the outing and act as the bank, after spending the afternoon with Emmanuelle and watching her in action, it was clear that our daughters were in good hands and would have been just fine without us.
It was a great excursion. Meeting place was very specific and the tour bus and guide right on time.
