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.

Julia was a fantastic tour guide! She was knowledgeable, friendly, and straightforward. We had a great time walking through a part of the city learning more about Paris' history! She had so many interesting facts to share with us. The pace was an excellent speed for children and adults, and she was able to keep everyone entertained. Even though Notre Dame was closed for construction, she still brought us to see it as close as possible! The entry into Sainte-Chapelle was fantastic as well! Would highly recommend it for families and individuals short on time in Paris!
