We were fortunate to have Shannonas our private guide. She was prompt, knowledgeable, and had interesting anecdotes. Worth every penny!

I’ve been in this tour before and went again with friends who haven’t been before and I’m so glad I did. Leo had stories and fun facts that I hadn’t heard before. He was engaging, informative and fun!!!

Loved the tour - the duration, the information and particularly our tour, guide Charlie. We came away knowing so much more about French history, architecture as well as Notre Dame.

This was a very interesting tour. Charley was very knowledgeable and friendly. Worth the price to skip the line. would do this again.

Our tour guide, Charlie, was superb. He was informative and funny without lecturing the tout group. He kept the tour moving without feeling rushed. This was a highlight and I would highly recommend it.

Loved this, again I felt quite privileged not having to wait in line. There was a service on the time of our allocated visit which was cool you got to see some of it, but we also got ushered out of a small area because of it which shortened our time there. Totally recommend the tower climb, so worth it once you are up there. Our guide was great, tour very organised and precise.

The tour wasn’t good especially the meeting point is a mile away. Three bridges away. Too much walk the our guide must hold something high to find

The tour guide made the best tour we had while in Paris. Very informative, polite, funny and holds your attention. It was outstanding.
