A fantastic tour, worth every penny. Getting to spend 30 minutes alone in the Sainte-Chapelle was unforgettable. The tour guide Adam is a natural story teller, and would highly recommend him.

Team Adam! This tour was incredible. The only one that gives private early access to the chapel! Being able to take pictures with no one else there! Adam was so knowledgeable and had such a great insight

Adam was our guide and we were in for a special treat. It was a National Strike day but we managed to gain access before they closed the doors to the public. This meant we got to spend extra time there. Adam described the stories behind the stained glass panels which made the visit more meaningful. Similarly his commentary on Marie Antoinette made the Conciergerie a very interesting visit. A great tour and highly revommended
