Viriginie G (March 2022):
We loved this fun and interesting visit. Our guide fascinated the children with his knowledge, his humor, his patience and his pedagogy, without forgetting the 10 words of "show-off", a very original idea. Thank you and bravo!

M Poulain (March 2022):
We had a wonderful visit to the Opera with Cyril. We were with a 5 year old and Cyril managed to capture the attention of all the children in the group from the youngest to the oldest with his passionate and exciting stories. A big thank you to him.

Eve P (February 25, 2022)
I took part yesterday in a playful visit of the Opera with my family, a visit led by one of your lecturers (Cyril) and I would like to underline the great quality of his work. It was really great! Congratulations to him.
