Dony is clearly very knowledgeable, but he got way too over involved in very specific Greek and Roman mythology and architecture. He kept going into super detailed points, often at the expense of the larger picture. He spoke very quickly and with his thick accent, we were exhausted from listening intently for 3 hours. He’s super nice and very polite, just not engaged, other than to ask what we all did for a living. I think it would have been more interesting and informative to Donyif he asked participants what our interest in taking the tour were.
The Paris Architecture tour that we took was a fascinating introduction to Paris. Iveta was a fantastic guide, leading us through some really interesting parts of the city and explaining about the development of the layout of the modern city of Paris in terms of history, architecture, and urban development. We did the tour the day after we arrived. It gave us a wonderful introduction to Paris and made the rest of our trip so much more interesting knowing what we were looking at in terms of architecture and urban design. I highly recommend Context Travel and Iveta as a guide.
Camille was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour both interesting and informative. The pace of the tour was comfortable and enjoyable. Camille was able to relate the development of Paris architecture and city planning to French and Parisian history. Her background in art history was very helpful in understanding Paris architecture. I would definitely go on another tour with Camille!
