Our driver arrived promptly at the hotel in a lovely car. He covered so much of Paris during the tour. He even managed to fit in the Louis Vuitton in the Bois de Bologne.

Great to be able to do your own tour at your own pace. Great information about the history of the city and how locals live and where they go.
Wajma_H, Oct 2022
Driver took us only to two places and rushed us he said there is too much traffic and was late for his next tour did not explain anything and when I asked if he knows any good restaurants that he can recommend very abruptly said - No I don’t know. He was stressed out because we were stuck in traffic the drive showed a lot of attitude and was very abrupt Please DO NOT WASTE YOUR Money on this tour
Great tour with Guide
Alayne_P, Jul 2022
Steve our guide was so knowledgeable about everything. We took us to all the best places and told us where to get the best macarons! He did not disappoint with his recommendations. His history and knowledge along with his trivia kept this tour lively and fun!
Pretty good tour.
Christie_N, Jul 2022
Gilbert did a good job showing us the traditional highlights of Paris. He was accommodating and friendly. Language was a little bit of an issue but he tried to show us what we wanted to see and describe the highlights.
driver only
Nancy_P, Jun 2022
The driver did as we asked, but if we had not been to Paris before, we would not have known what to ask for. I was under the mistaken impression that the driver also was a guide - the first thing he told us what that he was not a guide. Otherwise, he did a good job and was ver pleasant.
Disaster from a trip
Miroslav_T, Jun 2022
disaster from a trip. A driver who has to play the guide. English is not his strong link. Mostly the driver was likeable and tried as miserably as he could but nike at the level of a skilled guide. In a word disaster, avoid in a wide arc.
Saves renting a car
Marilyn_F, Jun 2022
This is simply a driver to take you wherever you want to go in Paris. We had a few places we wanted to see and it was nice to be dropped off and picked up without hassle. Don’t expect detailed guiding.
Laughed and had fun
Ren_Q, Jun 2022
Steven was great. Gave us all the good scoop and very friendly. We laughed and saw all the sights. Our original guide wasn’t feeling well and the company really helped us figure out a new time. We were so glad!
Nick_B, Jun 2022
We were disappointed by this tour. We had a four hour tour. On the positive side Gregory showed up on time and was a good driver. On the bad side he was not really a guide. He shared very little details aside from what we were seeing. So he would say “on your right is the seine river..”. And stop. No details. No history. No stories. Additionally the vehicle was not setup for tours. Two of the five seats were backward facing. So when we were being told we were approaching a site half our group couldn’t see it. Overall very disappointing.
Nana and her girls visit Paris
Kathryn_C, Jun 2022
Gregory, our driver, showed up to our apartment right on time in his mini van. He toured us all over Paris giving us information on French history and culture. He had bottled water for all of us (a nice amenity) and his English was very good. He gave us time to get out at all the “hot spots” for pictures and stretching our legs. A city sightseeing tour at the beginning of your trip to a new city is a great idea to help you get your bearings. Highly recommend.

Rohit_P, May 2022
The Driver was very polite and gived us a Guided Tour of the City. I would recommend this Paris Half - Day Tour with Private Driver.
Excellent experience
Suzanne_M, Apr 2022
Amazing guide. Friendly, knowledgeable. My children were amazed at the depth and breadth of her knowledge. Saw everything we wanted to see. Highly recommended.
It was ok
Del_H, Mar 2022
The experience started rough. We had no confirmatory call from guide. He started it at 9 but w/o call to confirm time. He showed us significant knowledge but liked to ask “ who is this or that? “ as if to display his knowledge of the object or person. I have enjoyed many personal tours in the last. He is fortunate I wrote it was “ok.”
Private Personalized Tour of Paris
Lauren_M, Mar 2022
Our driver Steven was knowledgeable, easy to understand & very warm. He showed us the highlights of Paris AND took us to some great spots that were off the beaten path & made us feel more like locals than tourists. And the vehicle was new, clean & luxury. Highly recommend!
Five Star Half Day Tour
John_W, Dec 2021
Loved travelling to all the sights we had picked out in advance. We stopped for picture opprtunities at many locations.
Two thumbs way up!
Victor_S, Dec 2021
Our guide and driver were wonderful and made the tour special. They were very accommodating and kind.
Great Paris tour
Patricia_E, Nov 2021
Our guide Lilith and driver Lucien were so friendly and accommodating Lucien navigated the city so well which allowed us to see all the hidden spots and Lillith was so knowledgeable and shared the history and great anecdotes
Perfect Way to see all the sites, then enjoy the true heart of the city… the people.
Jason_C, Aug 2021
Our tour guide Lilit was so knowledgeable and amazing. And our driver, Lucian stopped anywhere we asked for photos. We planned to only spend an hour or so in Montemontre for a cafe au lait and a crepe and all the rest of the tour was for sightseeing. Ended up with a beautiful sketch from a local artist and plenty of time to see all the other sights. In my opinion, the experience is best if you follow along and ask questions and keep your group small. It was very personalized and easy to communicate with the team. Top notch service and experience. Highly recommend.
Maximum 8 People but no Guide
2020_Vision, Jul 2021
Our group of 8 enjoyed having someone to drive us around to all the most popular sites of Paris. However with 8 people there was no room for the guide. Our driver was great, he answered the question he could but we were not able to get the full guided experience. We saw all the sites but did not get a lot of history so it eventually just became a get out take a photo and drive on. Wish we knew sooner there would be no guide.

Overall the tour was fine, Guide very knowledgeable. He had a driver with him and he and the driver spent most of the tour discussing things in French which we did not understand.

Lynne E, Apr 2017
Andrew arrived with a driver so he could concentrate on sharing historical information with us. He was a good guide who knew when to give us time to be awed in silence, answer our questions, and provide detailed, in-depth details of our first overview tour of Paris.
