Good, but not great
Chad_O, Aug 2022
We learned a lot on this walking tour, but the group was definitely WAY too big for the tour to be enjoyable. Too much time was spent waiting for groups to catch up (particularly those with small children), and if you weren't close enough to the guide when she was talking, you couldn't hear what she was saying, and because the group was so big, you couldn't be near enough to the guide at every stop, so there was a lot of information that was missed. We were also promised a group photo that was taken at the end of the tour, but we never received anything.

Very informative and entertaining tour leaded by Sag

Sag was a great guide - very sympathic and enthusiastic with a deep knowledge. Even if it was a quite a big group, he was able to talk to everybody and to integrate the group by asking questions.
Response from Host, June 2022
Thank you so much! Sag sure does know a lot about Paris - we're happy you took a tour. We hope to have you back again in Paris soon. Maybe take a Montmartre walking tour next?!
