I recently had the pleasure of working with a talented photographer, Eny Therese during my trip to Paris. I cannot express enough how thrilled I am with the results. From start to finish, the experience was absolutely amazing, and I couldn't have asked for a better way to capture the beauty and essence of the city. First and foremost, she was extremely professional and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire shoot. From the moment we met, her warm and friendly demeanor immediately put me at ease, allowing me to relax and truly enjoy the experience. This was particularly important to me, as I wanted the pictures to reflect my genuine emotions and the joy I felt exploring Paris. Her attention to detail was truly remarkable. She had an incredible eye for capturing the perfect moments and angles, ensuring that every shot was visually stunning. Overall, I recommend this photographer. Their professionalism, skill, and artistic vision truly sets them apart.

My wife and I had an amazing time on Ben's tour. We hadn't done many walking tours, so we were slightly nervous, but he made us feel very welcome with a great sense of humour! The pace is easy to handle, and we learned so much more than we expected. Even if you know nothing about French history, you'll find it very entertaining, and the guide's enthusiasm for the city is infectious. He was a walking encyclopedia, quick to answer every question we had. We just wish we could have taken Ben with us on the rest of the trip! Highly Recommend.

I enjoyed the tour and the guide. Sainte Chapelle is so beautiful and the conciergerie was interesting and our guide gave us good information I had not gotten when doing these places on my own.

It was very pleasant and romantic… Seeing Paris all lit up in the evening is truly fascinating…

Great fun, fabulous way to see the city and have a sit-down if required!
