Awesome guide, learned lots of history that otherwise wouldn't. Great to see some parts of Paris that again, we probably wouldn't have wandered through.

Good Leader. I enjoyed the history and background info. There did seem to be a gratuitous use of violence in the story telling. Perhaps a little less gore and more supporting history would make the event perfect.
