This was a wonderful tour! The tour starts off in Angelina Cafe. We were given iced chocolate because it was such a hot and humid day and it was a delicious drink. The tour guide told the life long story of Coco Chanel. We spent about 45 minutes in the cafe. She had a binder with pictures depicting various parts of CC's life. We left the cafe and wandered through Paris, going to her first shop hats, which would nowadays be considered a pop up shop, her fashion house, her home at the Ritz, while listening to stories of her life.

My one recommendation would be to use the pictures/images that are in tour guide's binder on an ipad just to go with the times, binders are a bit dated. It would be a more clean and sleek presentation.

Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you are a lover of CC and a fashionista!

Wonderful tour with great guide -- I believe she was Laura from Canada. Friendly and well informed. A modest amount of walking, interesting anecdotes and history. Coco Chanel was a complicated woman and this tour brings her to life. Its not about the brands and products, its about her life and history in Paris.

We started with the best hot chocolate I have ever had at Angelina while our guide, Marie, described the background of Coco Chanel. She had visuals which made the information more real and understandable. Then we walked through the streets to see important buildings relating to Coco Chanel and ended up at the Ritz where Coco Chanel lived. During the tour we stopped at the Chanel store and got permission to see and take photos of Chanel's famous mirrored staircase. Marie was also able to answer questions about Paris in general. She was very knowledgeable and interesting. I would definitely take this tour.

Fun and informative tour. Met at Angelina's and enjoyed the delicious hot chocolate to start the tour. Walked some of the areas Coco Channel lived and worked. I wish the tour guide was a little more dressed to perfection as Coco, but She was friendly and warm in her presentation.

This tour was both informative and interesting. My guide was both knowledgeable and fun with excellent English skills. She was also tres chic dressed in her vintage clothes. Oh how cute she looked sitting amidst the Belle Époque decor in Angelina's. Honestly, as I sat in this historic tea room sipping my chocolat chaud, I looked at the crowded room via the mirrors and was transported in time! Our guide used a flip chart to tell us Coco's story. The walking part of the tour was slow paced, short but informative. I would highly recommend this tour to a friend. However, I would tell them not to expect to see the latest fashions on this tour. You will learn about fashion trends and the history of an important fashion icon and the contributions Coco Chanel made to the fashion world both then and now.

I am a Chanel fan....so was very excited when I found this tour. I feel our guide channeled Coco, as she dressed in vinatage clothing, her accent mirrored Coco's voice from movies I've seen, her words and stories chosen carefully you could tell she is both a fan and a student of Coco Chanel. The tour was delightful a very well done look back, with perfect backdrop locations. My husband joined me, who is not so much a fan, but also enjoyed it.
