Marine is an exceptional guide. She is very knowledgeable about Parisian history and is also an experienced teacher. I really enjoyed the route of her tour, especially as I've been to Paris many times and she led me on streets and in passages that were new to me. Context tours are very well organized, and their guides are the best you can find. Marine is one of the best guides I've ever had. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Excellent communication with your offices when I had queries. Thibaud was an excellent guide. He has a wealth of knowledge and a passion about his subject. He was a delight and the tour was wonderful.
Camille was great. She had tons of information and great sense of humor. The tour never was boring or tiring. We really liked it. However, we didn't hear much about how Haussmann changed the city to have better control of it or how streets could be cleaner. Maybe we were looking for things too specific.
