Dawie pronounced Davie was great! He was fun and entertaining. I enjoyed this tour a lot. I went to the Shakespeare bookstore and got the Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo as he recommended. I’m excited to read it. I didn’t know he’s also the author of Les Misérables. Thank you Dawie! :)

The guide, Alberto from Mexico is really good in storytelling. His stories about Paris and France made me curious about the history side of this beautiful city.
