We had a wonderful experience and absolutely loved getting to see Paris with Romy! She was extremely nice and took great care to ensure we were able to hear all the great things she had to tell us about Paris. The tour was one of the highlights of our time in Paris partly because we got to see and learn about the different locations in Paris but also because Romy was an excellent guide. I would suggest doing this tour when coming to Paris and if you get the chance to do the tour with Romy, you are in for a great experience.
