    Thomas was awesome, the tour was awesome, I'll definitely be using Fat Tire again. I'm a high school French teacher and I learned so much that I didn't already know about the different sites of the revolution. It was seriously incredible and I highly recommend it.

    We had a fabulous 2 hour walk with Richard who gave us an enthralling account of the French Revolution(s). He was very clear, concise and above all amusing. The walk is a great way to begin a visit of Paris. Must do this with Richard.

    My husband and I enjoyed this two-hour snapshot of the French Revolution. By going on a walking tour, we were able to see so many things we would have missed on a bus tour. Now I know Marie Antoinette never really said, "let them eat cake!"

    Our family of four took the 2 hour French Revolution Walking tour with David. He did a nice job of bringing the history alive for us. We highly recommend.

    Our guide Nick was superb. He started us at Les Invalides, a hospital and armory ay the time, where the revolutionaries grabbed more than 30,000 weapons and proceeded to storm the Bastille. At Ptlace de la Revolution (now Concorde) his narrative included the execution of the king and queen (and 3000 others) by guilliotine. Then there was the Reign of Terror.....We ended up in the Tuileries which once held a beautiful royal palace. We spent a couple of hours on an interesting and informative walking tour.....can't say enough about Nick's sense of humor!

    I've done other walking tours, but this one was my favorite. You really do get to see the places that shaped the whole beginning to end of the French Revolution.

    This was a very informative tour, and our guide Ben was very knowledgeable as well as personable. We had extremely hot weather (98 F), so it felt a bit like a forced march through an oven, but that certainly wasn't anyone's fault! Would definitely recommend!

    Paul was great! There wasn't a question thrown his way that he could not answer. Really gave us a good understanding of the French Revolution--causes and occurrences

    Fast-paced facts-a-flying tour for history buffs. Our tour guide was very conversational and able to answer questions for us between sights. Would highly recommend!
