Matthew was a wonderful guide who gave historical information in a lively manner and shared behind the tour information to further enhance our experience. Seeing the number of bones in the catacombs is an overwhelming experience, but the behind the scenes part of the tour added so much more. The history shared as to why the catacombs were created was fascinating. I was disappointed when other tour participants did not seem to understand the need to tip your guide. I guess some don’t realize after the admission fees and the tour company takes its cut, there’s not much left over for the guide. REMEMBER TO TIP YOUR GUIDE IF YOU ENJOYED YOUR TOUR! 10% of the tour cost is reasonable
The tour with Emilie was fantastic! She adapted well to the change of my husband not attending the tour snd personalized it very well to my interests. Her insights and information about the history of Le Marais gave me great background for walking around on my own later. The food stops were amazing! I loved learning about the history of the Poilane bread, the buckwheat crepe with ham and cheese was my first savory crepe and so good! The confitture shop was out of this world and the chocolatier Edwin at EdwarT have so much wonderful info about chocolate origins as well as fantastic flavors. The Merveilleux were mervielleux! Melt in your mouth, light creamy flavor explosion!
The meet up location was easy to find. Our guide had us try new things, but also let us try things we were comfortable with. We tried many different things and I fell in love with so much!
LAURA was an excellent guide . Very vivid descriptions . We enjoyed the tour so much!
Absolutely fantastic experience with a very nice and professional guide!
