Helpful in many ways

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the city and had done his research well. A bit more time actually seeing the church in the buildings might have been helpful as we sat and talked a lot (had excellent reference photos) he was very good to an ailing member of the group (though not so quick to find her a bathroom:( He also helped me find a place I was looking for and made a great restaurant recommendation based on personal experience. He was sincere in his interest in history and sharing his great knowledge (not bored with material). thank you very much.

Guided tour by Quentin in perfect English. We are French but we wanted to take a visit in English, just to improve the language. Very good organization, because despite our small delay of a few minutes, the guide contacted us and guided us to the place of departure of the visit. We were able to benefit from the experience and enthusiasm of Quentin, who answered all our questions and listened to us. Thank you

A great tour. The tour guide was pleasant, funny, knowledgeable and prepared. This was my 4th visit to St. Chapelle and I’m glad I took the tour.

Our guide was great!! Great for those that want to learn a lot of Paris history.
