Private guide for Paris

Life happens and we will not be able to meet our friends who were to show us around Paris in May. So! I am bringing my adult family of five to Paris and hope for a private guide to show us the city. This would take a great deal of pressure off of me. One to two days, I believe. Can anyone help me? We will be staying in the 7th.
My gratitude,
Martha

Check out Paris Greeters. They are a non-profit group that has local residents who offer to show tourists their neighborhoods, and Paris. I believe it's free but donations are asked for.

A View of Paris. Iris Amis is certified, and licensed by the French government. She would be able to set up a multi day program. I have run into her at the Louvre with a small, private family group. I’ve toured with her twice when she led the Paris Walks Chocolate Tour, which she created for them. She’s also been featured on the Paris episodes of Globe Trekker.

I recommend Paris with Flo - https://www.facebook.com/pariswith.flo
Florent is an amazing guide. He does virtual tours on HeyGo.com, so you can check him out. He is very knowledgeable about the city and its monuments and history. We did a tour with him in September of the Marais and loved it. This morning he did a French Revolution tour on HeyGo that was fantastic.

So helpful. Some of us are able walkers and others less so. Electric bikes might work. We really need help introducing my adult family to Paris with someone who can go at our pace. Many thanks and any other suggestions are so welcome.

We used WithLocals in Paris for a couple of tours in December 2021 and January 2022. Great experience. We had six - mom, dad with four 20 to 30 year olds.

Do try and book your guides directly.
All of the tour consolidators charge a 25-30% commission when you book a guide or a tour with them. Tours by Locals, Get your Guide. Air BnB experiences, Viator, etc.

He saw Paris over two days and toured Versailles on the third day. It was the highlight of the trip!
