Wonderful historical tour of Paris! Our family of four (we have two teenage daughters) started our visit in Paris with this tour, and we were very impressed with our tour guide Tobias. He knew so much of the history of the city, and it was a perfect way to start our week there because it gave us all the background information that we needed for our subsequent tours in Normandy at the D-Day beaches, and even of the Louvre. Besides being very knowledgeable, Tobias was also very friendly and personable. He took the time to try to get to know each of us on the tour so that he could give us individual recommendations on things to do and where to go while we were visiting. In addition to discussing the history of Paris and World War 2, he also showed us good places to shop and eat. He genuinely enjoys his work, and it was a pleasure to have him as a guide. I would definitely recommend this tour with Tobias!
