Artur was a fantastic guide! His knowledge of Parisian and French history was excellent. His style was personable and entertaining. The tour offered us insights into some of the major tourist sites, then shifted into more of a gourmet tasting session as we explored some hidden

Dear Brian, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review and first of all we're happy to hear that you loved the tour with Emilie. Regarding the meeting place, we did update it on January 1st last year from Place de la Concorde to Place de la Madeleine (the distance between these two squares is only 500 meters, so 0.3 miles though!). If these changes are often problematic we tried to make sure that every distributors was informed to avoid any bad experience like yours. So we're sorry to heat that it wasn't your case and that the update of the change wasn't passed onto you. Best, Tim

So, this is two tours sandwiched back to back. Be ready for some WALKING. You're going to spend 8 hours on your feet with a few minor breaks and a lunch in the middle. The tour drifts around all over the place, as you can when you're spending an entire day strolling

I have taken this tour at the end of December. It was the worst experience I've ever tried. 1) The tour was very boring. The guide presented no interesting stories or facts about Paris. 2) I didn't feel the enthusiasm and engagement from the guide's side. He didn't pay

Hello Oleksander, We're sorry to hear that our full day tour was "the worse experience you've tried". That must have been pretty traumatising, then! Sorry as well that you didn't enjoy Arthur. We value him very much, as he's one of our most experienced and well-reviewed guide, but I believe one can't please everyone. A few points I would like to respond to your review here for other readers. First of all, yes, the tour is divided into two parts, with usually a 1/1.5 hours break, in between the two legs. The whole day includes about 12 km of walking over 7-8 hours, so people usually are happy to have a little break in between to rest their legs or to have a bit of time for shopping. Then, it is not true that the morning leg of the tour finished at 11.30 AM. It usually finishes around 12.30PM, as it was the case on the day you took the tour with us. Maybe it felt shorter because you arrived about 15 minutes late to the meeting point at the morning leg AND the afternoon leg, having the rest of the group waiting for you twice? Actually, on the afternoon part, the guide realised after 15 minutes that you were just a few meters away from the departure point taking pictures of yourself and you wife, while the group waited for you, without notifying anyone of your presence on the spot. Finally, you decided to leave before the end, which is your free decision, but maybe you missed some additional information that could have been "interesting stories and facts about Paris". Best, Tim
