Our experience with Hidden Gems was wonderful and I would highly recommend them. We found it very easy to communicate with Xavier through email and he met all of our needs. We met Anna Maria by the Louvre and she was as sweet as could be. She was very knowledgeable and knew her way around the Louvre with ease. We also visited Versailles with Claudia and had another wonderful experience. Everyone showed up on time, including the driver who took us to Versailles. Our experience was top notch and we will definitely use Hidden Gems again when we visit France in the future.

Travelling with two young children, we decided to take a private tour to skip the lines and not waste our precious travel time in queues - coming from Australia it wasn't going to be a quick visit to come back!. Our tour guide was Anna Maria - we loved her from the start. She picked us up from our property in Paris with the driver in a luxury Mercedes and was an instant hit with our children. Anna Maria was clearly very knowledgeable about Versailles and the surrounding area and took the time to answer our many queries with great insight, having previously worked at Versailles itself.
Being able to walk straight into the palace was such a relief, and despite crowds inside, Anna Maria was able to position us to see the best of everything and understood when the kids were getting restless and entertained them also with child friendly commentary.
Her passion and enthusiasm for her job and for the palace are a rarity and she absolutely made the day. Hidden Gems was very easy to deal with and provided all required information. We just can't wait to get back for our next visit!

Lorenzo Paillaud of Hidden Gems was amazing! Our trip with you to Giverny &Versailles was absolutely magical and one of the most memorable we've ever had. Lorenzo was a fantastic guide and we look forward to seeing him again on our next journey to France. I highly recommend recommend Lorenzo and Hidden Gems to everyone!

Our experience with Hidden Gems (Paris to Versailles) exceeded every expectation: the easy to navigate website, the owner, Xavier's, answers to our questions, the prompt and friendly driver, and, best of all, our extremely knowledgeable and personable guide, Lorenzo. A sixth star option should be added for Hidden Gems and their team. I cannot recommend them more highly.

We had a nice time with Anna-Maria. She was knowledgeable and passionate about Versailles. We could have spent more time in the gardens but will use that knowledge for another trip. The driver recommended a great cafe for lunch and dropped us off there when we got back to Paris. I would definitely use Hidden Gems again!
