6 days in Paris with a group of 6 adults/young adults, saw all the sights, museums. We unanimously agreed that this tour with Mila R was the highlight! Felt like a walking college art history tour with top professor. Fast paced, lively, loaded with context. Only regret is we wished we could have added an hour, then taken Mila to lunch. She is a lovely person and fantastic guide.

Brilliant show! An absolute must see when you're in Paris. I was in stitches laughing and truly felt I knew how to fit in with the Parisian ways for my time in the city.

It was easy going and a lot of fun! You're in the heart of Paris, and you can keep sightseeing after several glasses of wine and helpings of cheese!
