We were 2 couples with only a day and a half in Paris in November. Raphaelle met us at our hotel on our first afternoon. She knew our time was limited, and she had a well- thought-out plan for our tours. We saw far more in our 1 1/2 days than we ever could have imagined. Raphaelle was very knowledgable... More

We had Raphaelle for a full day ib October. What a great day-she is fantastic. We saw and experienced so much that day. We would have never seen so much in one day. Tired and happy at the end of the day. Thank you Raphaelle!

She navigated my wife and I through the city expertly, and was able to cover so much of Paris in two days. Her knowledge of art history, the city's history, and the museums are impressive. Her fluency with English made her an ideal guide/interpreter. My wife was not feeling well on day-two, and Raphaelle did a great job of arranging... More

Seeing Paris on foot is the only way to truly experience the most beautify city in the world. Even better, spend some time with Raphaelle as she walks you through the history and meaning of it all. She's knowledgeable, brilliant, and fun to be with. (Raphaellecrevet@yahoo.fr)

When I contacted Boris my husband and I were primarily seeking a guide for the museum Orsay. We also wanted to explore the left bank and thought we could combine the two. Boris was very flexible and happy to work with our requests. What we ended up seeing and doing was beyond any expectation. We started at the museum Though... More

Booked a wheelchair from www.parisprivateguides.com to allow my mother to enjoy the many sights she would have otherwise not been able to visit. The service from Christopher Back (Director @ www.parisprivateguides.com) was exceptional. Christopher was very helpful, the process of arranging the chair was very well explained and gave me confidence that everything was going to run smoothly. The chair... More

We went on our first visit to Paris and it was an excellent experience. They arranged for Airport Transfers, a Private Tour of Paris and a Private Tour of Versailles. Our driver and our guides, Alice and Sandrine, were outstanding. Thank you!

In Paris, Christopher guided a friend and two others on a gourmet walking tour. A sunny spring day together with an extraordinary host gave us a wonderful experience. Christopher's knowledge and gentle hospitality were exceptional. The tour was personal and unrushed taking us through lanes, every type of gourmet treat you can imagine from pastries to cheese to chocolate to... More
