    Outstanding guided tour of Saint Chapelle and La Conciergerie. Violet our guide was fabulous, extremely knowledgeable. The Saint Chapelle is a very special Chapelle, just magical!! The 1,000 glass coloured panels are beautiful. The La Concergerie was great to see so much history. As I am very interested in Marie Antoinette it was great to see where she spent her last days of her life. I felt privileged to see this.

Guided tour by Quentin in perfect English. We are French but we wanted to take a visit in English, just to improve the language. Very good organization, because despite our small delay of a few minutes, the guide contacted us and guided us to the place of departure of the visit. We were able to benefit from the experience and enthusiasm of Quentin, who answered all our questions and listened to us. Thank you

The first sight of the upper chapel is very impressive. We stayed here about an hour and injoyed the athmosphere. It is a good idea to buy an itinerary with the plan of the windows and then try to identify some of the biblic pictures. We also visited Conciergerie with histopads, which is quite an interesting application with an augmented reality.

A real pleasure to discover the history of Paris by strolling through the streets at your own pace!

well organized. get ready for a lot of walking and learning about history...

My favorite place in Paris. A must see if you're ever in the area!
