Your guides are always excellent and I am always riveted by the content. On this occasion, Marie managed to engage my husband also, which on the subject of fashion is a real win.
This tour was absolutely amazing. We had taken the Versailles for Kids tour the previous Sunday and were very disappointed. But this walking tour with Marie, was amazing beyond the wildest expectations of both my 11 year old niece and myself. Marie was articulate, kind and very intelligent. She gave us a walking tour of the Left Bank AS WELL as the Right bank where all of the historical fashion icons resided and worked. Her visual aids kept the interest of both myself and my 11 year old. I am rather familiar with the history of Paris as well as the Parisian fashion industry, yet she kept surprising us with new information, new behind the scenes activities, and "off the beaten path" fashion locations I never knew existed. And she was so knowledgeable. WOW!!! One of the BEST context tours... in fact, one of the best travel tours I have ever taken. After the disastrous context Kids tour of Versailles we bravely endured 2 days before, I was ready to give up on taking another context tour. However, this tour was so incredibly awesome, I would clearly continue to recommend these tours to all of my colleagues who frequently travel. Although I'd tell them to avoid the Versailles tours like the plague.
Since there are many free walking tours being offered these days, I think your prices are a little extravagant. Also the participant should be left with a brochure or summary of the highlights, details and information about what they have seen.
