    Caroline was quite pleasant, engaging and informative. We learned about Medieval Paris, especially the years1100 - 1500. Caroline removed our misconceptions and clarified our understanding of Paris in this period. At the end of the tour she pointed out a lovely square at the end of the Ile de la Cite where we could have lunch and a glass of wine and even borrow pétanque balls from our waiter so we could play in the square. We enjoyed a rich 2 hours with Caroline!

    We had the pleasure of being guided through the sites of medieval Paris with Boris. My teenage boys(15 and 18) loved it. It was actually one of our favorite things on our trip. Boris was extremely knowledgeable about everything! It was such a pleasure spending the afternoon with Boris and learning about medieval Paris. Highly recommend!

    My family and I had the great fortune to have Boris take us on a private walking tour of medieval Paris. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Boris was engaging, extremely knowledgeable, personable, and simply just fun. I give Boris highest marks. He patiently answered questions and provided a wonderful picture of what medieval Paris must have been like. We found it to be very educational (but not overly so)...my teenage boys loved it!. Highly, highly recommend.
