Daniel Popesco Private tour guide in Paris, Saint-Denis, Versailles - France

Daniel Popesco

Guide profile:

I have just retired as an executive in Industry. Now that I have the time to do it, I would like to share my knowledge of Paris having been born in Paris and lived and studied my entire life in the historical center. I still live there today and am therefore very up to date with its cultural life, events and places to go. I have travelled extensively throughout the world during my business life mostly in North America, Europe and Asia, on my own, with my family or with colleagues. I often found it difficult to locate a guide that would make me better understand the history and the culture of the places I visited in greater depth. For this reason, I feel that I can offer something more than just basic guidance. I have a passion for History, Opera and Theatre. My car can be made available for your visits in or outside Paris at no extra cost.

We had such a great experience with Daniel while in Paris. He was so friendly and easy to spend time with and was always so concerned that we were enjoying ourselves. Daniel prepared a detailed itinerary for us to follow and made great recommendations for lunches and dinners.

We had a delightful experience with Daniel. He was excellent in all respects. He picked us up from Orly, toured us around Paris with great commentary, we stopped to see the neighborhood and home of Victor Hugo, had a marvelous lunch, toured St. Germaine du Pre, and got us to CDG airport in perfect time for our flight to Dubrovnik. It could not have been a better experience.

Daniel - Perfect - He was at the boat to pick us up and he took us back to boat a day later on time. He had a plan and I think we saw as much of Paris and the area as possible. He even suggested the hotel and the evening dining - both top notch.

His communication, listening skills, and willing attitude were excellent. We were two travelers who were glad Daniel was our guide. 10 out of 10. and he speaks several languages so he can take you anywhere.

We booked a one day tour with Daniel to cover Monet's Garden in Giverny and the Palace at Versailles. He is indeed an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. He provided transportation for us by car.

We greatly enjoyed the tour of Monet's Garden. Very beautiful, it is a tour we will never forget, especially thanks to Daniel. Not only the Palace at Versailles, but we got a tour of the Grand Trianon and Marie Antoinette's Village.

It was a really amazing all day tour. His knowledge of

We thoroughly enjoyed our three days with Daniel Popesco in Paris, Versailles, Giverny, St. Denis and Senlis . He has deep knowledge about French history and culture. There was never a dull moment with Daniel because he was enthusiastic and entertaining and we learned a lot from him. Daniel planned our detailed itinerary very thoughtfully, catering to the needs and interests of my history buff wife and my general interest in France. Even though we saw so many places, we never felt rushed.

Tour Guide Comment: I have to add that it has been a pleasure to spend time with Mr and Mrs Mubeen : being both very well educated they have shown deep interest in France, its culture and its history which they already knew quite well.

Daniel is amazing! He not only provided well researched custom tours, he drove us around in his own car. I asked Daniel to plan our Paris tour around my interest in Huguenot history. He came up with a wonderful history lesson and private passes to two churches. Then he reserved lunch for us at the finest culinary academy in Paris. For our second day, he showed us the way through the back gates of Versailles – little known treasures that were so much more interesting than the usual tours.

Tour Guide Comment: Roberta and her friends have been exceptionally attentive and interested in French history. I thoroughly enjoyed preparing the tour for them which incidentally included a memorable gourmet lunch at one of the most hidden place in Paris.
