I was lucky enough that i was the only one who signed up for this tour. Clémentine was a wonderful tour guide, and I had a really good time, learning from her, and getting to ask her questions. She is very knowledgeable and you can tell she loves history, and teaching others about it. The wine tasting at the end was a nice treat.

This was a marvelous tour of the Ile including the Palace of Justice, original lodging of the King. The history of the Ile and the structures such as Notre Dame, Palace of Justice, and Ste. Chappelle were so interesting. Our guide, Maureen, was very knowledgeable about the architecture and local history. My husband, son, daughter-in-law and I were the only ones on the tour so it was very special. We ended with a stop at one of the oldest restaurants for wine, cheese, bread, meat tasting. We would all highly recommend this tour!

This was the best tour we took in Paris!!! The information on this tour is outstanding and very different from the standard tour, so enjoy this one, as you won't find another as informative, entertaining, and of course, the wine and cheese were great!!!

This was an outstanding tour. Our guide, Violet, was fantastic. We were a small group and she was very knowledgeable of the area. The wine tasting was an added bonus. We all thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would recommend this tour to anyone going to Paris.

This was a really great experience, tour guide was very good. Especially liked the stop at a small restaurant for wine and cheese.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

The tour was thoroughly enjoyable and we highly recommend it. We thought that the tour would actually be inside the cathedral but was not. We entered the cathedral, free, on our own and toured this ancient building. The wine tasting and cheese at the end of the tour set the tour off in our memories.

Great Tour ! Our guide was a good English speaker and told us everything there is to know about the area. Our group was pretty small, the atmosphere quite friendly and we got to ask all the questions we had, a very fulfilling experience :

Upon arrival, we discovered we were the only two so we were treated to a VIP tour with Violet. She was a fabulous tour guide showing and explaining sites that we never would have known without her. We enjoyed our wine and cheese tasting as well. She picked out great wines and picked a restaurant that has the oldest wine cellar in Paris! We feel that we made a friend that day!
