"Our guide Isabelle met us at the train station with a big smile despite the fact that our train from London was one hour late in arriving. Isabelle was fantastic and we felt completely comfortable with her, like an old friend. Isabelle is extremely knowledge and she made sure we saw as much as possible in the short time we had. We highly recommend the wonderful team of Unique Paris Tours".

"This was a wonderful experience for our 7-person family. Our guide, Pascal, picked us up promptly and professionally for our schedule 3.5 hour tour. Although the itinerary might vary based on pickup, our tour began near Opera Garnier. After a drive through the Louvre area and some general comments, it was off to our first stop, Montmartre. We had about 45 minutes here, and Pascal gave us excellent advice on how best to spend our time. The next stop was Notre Dame, followed by the Trocadéro, with the best views of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Pascal was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and was willing to change the tour to accommodate special requests".

"I just returned from a one day trip to Paris with my mom and sister. I found Unique Paris on Tripadvisor and was thrilled I did. Alexandre organized my whole day. We had a personal driver show us all the sights of Paris in 4 hours. It was marvelous. We definitely saw more in 4 hours than I would have been able to figure out on my own. Our driver spoke great English and was very thoughtful.Alexandre was very responsive to my emails and questions. All the transports that he arranged were on time and friendly. I would definitely recommend Unique Paris. They made the difference between an OK trip and a great one".

"We took a day trip from London on the eurostar - were greeted by our first driver/guide, Fabian. He drove us all around Paris and discussed points of interest. We appreciated all his information and suggested routes - he helped us see so much in a short time. We stepped out to visit Notre Dame, enjoy fresh pastries, and to enjoy the view of Paris at the steps of Sacre Cour. He dropped us off at the Eiffel tower (they ordered our tickets in advance). We then walked to La Fontaine where they reserved lunch - fantastic Parisan fare! "

"Our afternoon paris essential trip was memorable. Fabian was excellent. He modified the tour for us as we had seen some of the attractions mentioned. He showed us some places that none of the other tour operators would have taken us. He also had lot of interesting information to share with us and was very accommodating".

"Our guide stayed with us throughout or visit. Tatiana was an amazing woman with so much good knowledge to share. She was always respectful of our time and interests and really catered well to the young kids. She never got hung up on herself and by the end of the trip we all felt like we were leaving a member of the family behind. I can honestly say it was our incredible pleasure to have met Tatiana's aquaintance and we will not hesitate to offer her referral to anyone and everyone who visits this great city".
