Paul was a really nice guy, very erudite but able to adapt perfectly to his young audience. Really great! Also, the appointment was near a demonstration and we were with our little baby. I was pretty scared and called thinking I might cancel. I got a very attentive person on the phone, who told me that the most important thing was that I had a good time and offered to reimburse me. So, even though there was no need in the end, also a big thank you for that.

Written by Sandrine, 24-08-2023

An erudite guide, but a tour unsuitable for children under 11. The reference to Harry Potter is just an advertisement; the tour is really designed for people who want to deepen their already in-depth knowledge of the city. No interactivity with the children, despite a pleasant, smiling guide, but only aimed at adults. Very disappointed by the content of this tour. Misleading presentation!

A fascinating and friendly visit led by a guide who was up to the task. We can't remember his first name, but it was his last day before his vacation in Turkey. So much for congratulating him, and congratulations again on the content of the tour.

Star Star Star Star Star - I would have loved to have taken this tour...
Written by Catherine MEADEB, on 19-04-2023

But we're under lockdown! The visit proposed on May 2 is totally forbidden (confinement until May 3). At the limit, we would have taken the risk: 4 people + the guide, no more than 6 with masks etc.. But My urban experience still didn't understand that we had a 7pm curfew! So the tour started at 5.30pm, and lasted 1.5 hours. DAMAGE!

A very interesting tour that was a great success with our grandchildren aged 16, 15 and 9. Our guide Bénédicte perfectly led the group of 2 children, 2 teenagers and 3 adults, helping us discover the treasures of old Paris and sharing her passion for history. A great experience, to be repeated.

Another way to discover a neighborhood. What's more, the atmosphere, between dogs and wolves due to the change in winter schedule, helped to create a suitable atmosphere. Well done to our guide, who was able to interest all age groups.

What to do on the Ile de la Cité side?
