As we walked by the old walls of Paris, down the center of the Tuileries and in the elegant Palais Royal gardens Marie pointed out the extraordinary effect and beautiful results of Haussmann’s work on the city. Galleries and passages, narrow streets and wide boulevards - we’ll see all differently now. A history lesson, a lovely walk, enlightening stories, and a brilliant guide. Can’t imagine any trip to Paris without the pleasure of at least one Context tour. Thanks.
Loved our tour with Marie, she was delightful. The information and knowledge we gained gave us a good understanding of Paris before our Modernist Architecture tour the following week.
Thibaud was an outstanding guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm was exceptional plus he was able to answer any questions we posed.
