I want to share a real treasure if you are thinking to hire a tour guide in Paris. I found Raphaelle Crevet through other online recommendations. I contacted her to show my son and his girlfriend around Paris before they started their study abroad semester. They spent two days with her exploring Paris and ended on the third day with a full day private tour of the Palace of Versailles. She was absolutely amazing. Her knowledge of Paris history, art, etc was impressive. She planned a fantastic itinerary that held their attention for two days. My son said she was one of the nicest people he has ever met. She is also an instructor at a local university. She has a website and is easy to find online.
