Paolo is a very pleasant guide! He asks questions to test your knowledge and explains everything very well and calmly. You can ask anything, he knows Paris and the history of Paris through and through. Walking into a museum with him is worth gold. You will also receive tips on where to get your souvenirs and you will visit places where you normally do not go as a tourist. You immediately feel at ease with him and go home with facts about Paris and very nice pictures. Thanks Paolo, we'll be back!

Absolutely amazing love the message and the Eiffel Tower lighting up but most importantly the driver was an absolute gentleman.
