Hugo was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and willing to share his information with us. He is a wonderful representative for your company.
Francois was amazing during our tour. My husband and I had a great time exploring the cemetery and learning the history and stories. Honestly we could have walked around ourselves and we wouldn’t have known any of the history behind the tombs and symbols. Francois was personable and fun; this is a must that I feel is overlooked when visiting Paris. I could have spent so much more time here!
Very good time and learned a lot! Rene was a great and friendly guide. The tour was a good length and covered interesting background. Very glad we booked this activity.
Extremely interesting tour filled with anecdotes and funny stories about the "residents". Tamara was extremely well versed and time just flew by!
Our group of six women toured the cemetery with Hugo, who shared dozens of colorful stories of French men and women who are buried there. His enthusiasm for the subject matter was infectious, and he was not only knowledgeable about French history and culture but entertaining and at times hilarious as well. Truly a five star experience!
This tour and tour guide was a highlight of our trip to Paris. Eduardo was our tour guide, and is he very knowledgeable, engaging and was a pleasure to talk to. He knew the layout and history of the cemetery and those buried there extremely well. My husband and I highly recommend this tour and guide in particular if you are interested in social history in Paris.
A very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. He not only knew everything about the cemetery but he was very knowledgeable with the history of the period. The tour was very enjoyable.
Lilly was great and fantastic guide. We had a great time with her and the router was fab. She was very knowledgeable and took us to the top sites within the Cemetery. Thank you Lilly
Taylor was fantastic. Lots of great information, fun stories, and interesting people she brought to life. I would happily take another tour with her.
Julian was an excellent guide. He pointed out the graves of Jim Morrison, Edith Pilaf,Oscar Wilde. Chopan, Molliere, Sarah Bernhardt, and many others. I loved that he went to his phone, and while we stood at the grave of Edith, he played her singing La Vie Em Rose. Our guide was informative and entertaining. One could spend days there, just wandering around which would be lovely, but we did not have that much time, so the tour with Juiian was a great introduction. I highly recommend taking this tour.
