  • Anya sp? was an art historian and I had to stop her several times from excessive detailing in the churches of Saint Germain and St. Supplice. I wanted to know about the area, primarily the literary environment, which she seemingly knew little about. No big deal to mention Cafe Flore, Deux Maggots, etc. She spent far too much time talking about social issues e.g., including marriage patterns in France and her own committed relationship. And she shocked me when she said that to really see Paris one should do so with a man. I tried several times to turn the conversation. Social issues as they affected the Saint Germain area would be OK. The tour turned into just a long walk down Rue Raspail, Luxenbourg gardens, etc. Loved my day tour in 2015 with Viator - to the Marne battlefields with Bertrand but Saint-Germain was a bummer. Viator needs either to re-label this walking tour as art history OR follow the marketing description. A friend did a walking tour of the area with a Viator competitor and saw all the literary sites with fantastic commentary -- I missed that!
