    I gave our guide, Oliver, a very difficult task to help me recreate my year as a student in Paris. He was charming, knew his art history, got us in and out of the museum on time. This guided tour was a total self-indulgence on my part. I was short on time and visiting Paris for perhaps the final time. It was a treat to be a "student" once again. The only negative is that the company expected me to "review" the tour immediately. I was enjoying a trip and kept my "internet" time to a minimum. Let a client get home before requesting a review! Please don't send repeated requests. If a client enjoyed your services, they will post as soon as they are able. Thank you, Oliver!

    An amazing insight and to Paris generally.

    Felix was an exceptional adviser on the Musée d'Orsay . His insight to the artworks and interesting facts behind the history of the artists was amazing. It was exceptional to have such insights delivered in such a meaningful and understandable way. I would recomend Felix in the most highly terms. Look forwrad to seeing more of Paris with Felix's guidance.
