    Yazid, the Red Tourist guide, is born for this work!! He was able to catch the attention of everyone, from adults to young kids. We had the great chance to learn si much regarding the Eiffel Tower and Paris. It’s the perfect time to visit la Dame de Fer. There is not so many tourists. The guides really need to work. There is a great need to support this profession. And Yazid is a very entertaining guide.

    My kids and I had an amazing experience with the guide and the service at the History Group. They were all very professional, helpful and friendly. The guide was very interesting and kept my kids engaged throughout the tour. I would recommend this site to everyone for the tour bookings.

    First of all, the page is easy to use, they give you specific instructions to carry out the visit. Arriving at the meeting point the attention was very friendly, they left us in the hands of Sebastián (our guide). He explained all the issues very well and in a very friendly way answered our questions. Finishing with Sebastián, you can stay in the tower and do what you like best; In our case, as we ask for the pass to go up to the chasm, they let you go up only once but you can go down, take photos of the best approach you can imagine, go shopping, have a coffee, go for a snack or go to the restaurant. Everything was magnificent !!
