Our tour was wonderful! Our guide, Julia, gave us lots of interesting information & took us to great places. The skip the line feature was a bonus! Merci! We ended up taking our boat tour a couple nights later. I appreciated the flexibility.

The tour was in an area with heavy traffic noise. It was very difficult to hear the tour guide. I went on a walks tour in London the week before and we had audio aids, also in the Catacomb tour in Paris we had audio aid.

Took another Walks Tour today and it was excellent, but we had audio aid.

Our tour guide, Ingrid, has been phenomenal and made our Paris tour rich of information, fun and perfectly enjoyable. Ingrid was enjoyable, positive and attentive to the participants, including children, who also greatly liked the experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend a Paris tour with Walks to know the city in a fun and effective way.
