    Tour was cancelled due to the Paris transit strike. The tour operator did not want to spend the extra money on a taxi so they cancelled the tour. Just FYI.... taxis did not charge extra during the strike. Only Uber’s

    Tour guide never showed up and never contacted us to apologize or offer a reason. We suspect that because it was only my husband and myself they didn't think it was worthwhile for them. Very disappointing as it was our last day in Paris, we had made the 30 minute trip to the meeting site and it was an afternoon tour so we had no chance of getting on another tour.

    Very good guide and since the other person didnt turn up there were only the two of us. We enjoyed the food wine and particularly the history as we walked Montmartre. Brilliant.

    Great tour

    It was fine. The guide was a delightful young woman, who was knowledgeable and friendly. They could work better at communication, however. We were told to be at the meeting site 15 minutes before the beginning of the tour, and we were. There was no one else there connected to the tour. Finally, we learned that that was because we were the only two people on the tour, and the guide was late. No one told us despite having my phone number and my email. A telephone inquiry was not answered. It was also expensive

    A must do!. Our guide Boris was exceptional and went into great detail explaining the history and changing cuture of Montmartre as well as well as sharing his knowledge of French wine. The tastings were outstanding. Thank you!

    We arrived fifteen minutes early. Waited over 30 minutes. The guide never arrived. We ended up buying a guide book and doing our own tour
