Chris

This was a fantastic tour -- a great way for a first time visitor to Paris to get a feel for the city. Out guide was Chris, and h...e was very helpful and knowledgeable about Paris, and gave us helpful tips and insights that helped us enjoy our stay there all the more. more

Jose

Dealing with City Discovery was an excellent experience, nothing was too much trouble. The web page was easy to follow and the pa...yment system was also excellent and very secure. I would highly recommend City Discovery. Thanks very much more

Susan

It was a great tour, we were only in Paris for a few days and wanted a tour of all the major sites and this tour did the job! The ...guide was lovely and the pace of the walk would suit young and old. The tour for you if you if you haven't got long in Paris! more

Mark

Patrick

The guide Rick was very easy to understand and very competent. I can't blame him for the rain on our tour!
Send him ...
my best regards. more

Kirsten

Our tour guide (Christy, I believe) was nice, but she did not convey the passion and knowledge of Paris we were looking for. We le...arned more about Paris from a small and inexpensive travel book we read on the Eurostar than from the guide. Such a shame, as we were hoping the tour would be packed with gossip, history, current events, etc.

And, we were under the impression we'd go to the Arc du Triomphe and down the Champs Elysee, instead they were pointed out to us from afar. This tour was not value for our money and we will not be recommending it in the future.
