Best day ever
Wow! Wow! We had the best time ever! Sara was our tour guide for the whole day and let me say...she's amazing!!! Her passion and knowledge about Paris will leave you wanting more! She made sure we had a great day, and took us to an amazing, one of a kind restaurant that only Paris can offer! Thank you Sara, truly, for such a wonderful day!! It was magical and one we will never forget! (I can go on forever about how amazing this day was.) We really felt the heart of Paris!

Paris by foot with mystical Eiffel Tower
Our guide Hafid was exceptional, very engaging and informing. The Eiffel Tower was incredible, shrouded in fog at the start - hence being quite mystical. Skipping the line is the only way to go, while there were a lot of people for the tour we were all split into smaller groups, generally based on language. I’d hadn’t realised there was also a boat ride down the river which was fabulous. The walk through the city was great.

Meeting point

Allée des Refuzniks, 75007 Paris (at south security entrance)
