This tour was absolutely amazing. We had a wonderful tour guide who described our surroundings, historical events, and landmarks from the moment we left Paris to the moment we returned, which broadened our understanding of all the areas we got to know on this trip. Once in Normandy, the visit to the museum was inspirational as it continued with a show and rooms including pictures and articles from WWII and at times, it was possible to believe one had gone back in time.

Walking the beach at Normandy and seeing the different landing sites is something that mere reading (which I have done a lot of or movies) cannot fully express, and our visit to the American Cemetery-memorial and seeing the rows of all the young men and women who fought and died for freedom was breath-taking and inspirational. Upon our return to Paris, we arrived just when the Eiffel Tower lights started sparkling and twinkling 9pm which was an awesome sight. Highly recommend this tour-a long day, but well worth it!

We booked a full day, private tour of Versailles and the Trianons as well as a half day city tour of Paris for myself and four family members (all adults). Our guide and driver, Jean, was superb. Not only immensely knowledgeable regarding the history of Versailles specifically and French history in general, but also a wonderfully pleasant person and a pleasure to spend time with. I can't overstate how informative and pleasant Jean's tours were. He really made the tours memorable. Definitely recommend at least a full day for Versailles and the Grand and Petit Trianon. Wear comfortable shoes as there's a great deal of walking.

We also booked several private transfers between Charles de Gaulle,our apartment and various venues throughout Paris. The Touring France drivers were all pleasant and immaculately on time. We had a five person party with one wheel chair and everything was fully accommodated.

I was traveling with a group of ten from the United States. We were picked up at our hotel in Paris with a driver (Sammy) and an English speaking tour guide (Frederic). Our trip was a long day, 12 hours in all, but Frederic was amazing. His knowledge of the area, of the D-Day beaches, of the war in general was unbelievable. The day flew by. The American Cemetery absolutely took my breath away and brought tears to the eyes of all of us. Pictures in books and on television do it no justice. It is a must-see for American tourists! I highly recommend this entire tour and company...they were so easy to deal with and readily available to answer any questions. Emails were answered promptly and I received a few phone calls from Claire before we left the States just to be sure I didn't have any more questions or concerns. Thank you for such a memorable experience! Debbie

Overall wonderful communication in booking the tour and determining what we wanted to see in our day in Paris! Gwen met us right at the train terminal and we were off. We learned so much in a short amount of time. Would highly recommend this company for a personal guided tour. So easy to work with especially as I was communicating with them from the states.

Never having been to the D-Day beaches, I wanted to have a tour guide to show us around. Jonathan was amazing. His knowledge was far deeper than we could take advantage of. He knew what battalion or squadron arrived at what beach at what time, how many German soldiers they were up against, what the complications were, etc We also visited the American Cemetary which was breathtaking and where again Jonathan knew more than we expected. We learned so much.He was also a very pleasant person to spend the day with. If you are expecting basically a driver, you could probably book that somewhere else. if you want a knowledgeable guide, he's your person. The company was easy to work with and good about following up with me when I got caught up in other things to make sure that we got the tour booked properly. Couldn't recommend them more highly.
