Viator review by AMA, Rodriguez. Texas, United States

My education background has taken me through political sciences and history, communication and economics, urban policies and archeology. Each tour is a great occasion for me to SHARE THE LOCAL vision of Paris and France, have you MEET WITH REAL PEOPLE and connect to EACH PLACE we visit.

I know all the nooks and crannies of the LOUVRE and NOTRE DAME, but let me also take you to the LOCAL AWARD-WINNING PASTRY SHOP and the most AUTHENTIC WINE BAR. Constantly looking for the BEST BALANCE of iconic landmarks of Paris, and hidden gems of our WAY OF LIFE!

Excelente guía y perfectamente preparado. Muy amable y dominio del idioma español. Visitas dinámicas y divertidas, lo que lo hace sin duda un buen guía si viajan con niños y adolescentes.Combina visitas de monumentos históricos con lugares o rincones pintorescos. Puntualidad máxima. Todo fueron facilidades. Muy recomendable.

5 stars SERGIO J. 13 Sep 2015

Bertrand fue nuestro perfecto Guia en Paris, viajamos con dos niños pequeños y nos enseñó el museo de Louvre y Montmartre.

Hizo que nuestra visita fuera maravillosa, enseñándonos rincones increíbles en Montmartre fuera de la ruta puramente turística y en el Museo hizo que los niños los pasaran muy bien, con un pequeño juego que los mantuvo emocionados y a la expectativa durante toda la visita.

En resumen 100% recomendable, muy profesional, amable y simpático..Habla español perfectamente

Tour Guide Comment: Muchas gracias Sergio, un placer conocerte y tu familia. Vuelven en Paris que disfrutamos otras partes! Un saludo a toda la familia.

Excellent guide tour!! We enjoy our productive visit to Paris because Bertrand was informative, fun and with solid knowledge of history, politics, places to visit and eat. I will highly recommend him to my friends. Will use him in my next trip to France.

Tour Guide Comment: Muchas gracias Ama, what a couple days we've had right?! I am really proud of ourselves for having seen so much of Paris yet having had time to enjoy the city as locals. You are welcome any time! Bertrand

5 stars Wendy S. 13 Jun 2015

We had a lovely tour with Bertrand around Paris. He met us on time at our apartment, helped with Metro tickets and showed us St Chapelle, Notre Dame and the Marais area. He found us a nice restaurant for lunch and also helped me organise a sim card for my phone. After lunch he gave us a great tour of the Louvre - explaining the history and ensuring we saw the best areas.

He was also really helpful with a flood of email questions and also used his contacts to book us a great Eiffel Tower tour.

Tour Guide Comment: Merci Wendy, I am very glad we manage to get your French phone set up for you stay in my beautiful country! Please pass my regards to Rami, and congratulations for the new pilote of the house! A bientôt, Bertrand

Tour Guide Comment: Merci Randy, it was a pleasure to guide for your first visit to Paris. I am glad you were so confident with using the transportation and orientate yourselves after the tour together!

5 stars Gay K. 08 Jun 2015

Bertrand provided an excellent tour and spoke English perfectly. He was very knowledgeable and able to share that knowledge in a fashion that answered all your questions and those questions you should have asked. Walking around Paris with Bertrand was like strolling through the neighborhoods with a best friend who lived there all their life and was sharing his personal insights. I would certainly use Bertrand again and recommend him to all my friends.

Tour Guide Comment: Merci beaucoup Gay and Richard, these times spent together will remain as one of my favorite memories as a guide. Bertrand

5 stars Diane W. 05 Jun 2015

Bertrand is an wonderful tour guide for Paris. He gave us the "locals' tour" showing us Le Marais, Bastille, Stalingrad and other residential areas. We mapped out our day sitting on the lawn at Place des Vosges over a croissant and learning the history of this important square. Throughout the day (from 9:00 to 4:30 ) we visited neighborhoods, sampled eclairs at an amazing bakery, cheeses at the local food market, had a typical French lunch and learned tons along the way! Highly recommend!

Tour Guide Comment: Merci Diane, we really had a memorable day, and I am glad I showed you 4 amazing yet unknown areas of Paris. Hope to see you soon, and let me know once the grand child is born!

5 stars Holly S. 20 Sep 2013

Bertrand was not available the day we wanted, but he made arrangements with his colleagues, Thomas and Alex. We had an amazing time! We covered everything I had in mind and much much more. They're English was great, so no problems with conversation. We booked them the first day we arrived in Paris and I'm so glad. It was helpful to learn the bus and subway system as we used them several times during the tour. We were kind of sad exploring Paris the next day without them!
