Star Star Star Star Star - Very nice route, very good guide, but the QUIZZ: VOID from VOID too difficult, unless you take notes
Written by Maria DA COSTA, on 29-02-2024

NO, I won't be recommending this outing to anyone I know because of the QUIZZ we look like idiots if we haven't retained any of the words.... too sophisticated Not enough SNAPSHOT anecdotes to interest the children, who are stressed by the intero at the end of the visit.

Star Star Star Star Star - Awesome!!!

This was our 1st visit with Ludo and Sophie. Visit with my 7.5-year-old son. Our guide, Cyril, really took us on a tour full of humor, games and anecdotes. A wonderful discovery, both of the Invalides and of the Ludo & Sophie organization! We look forward to our next visits, which have already been booked! A big bravo and thank you to Cyril.
