What to expect
Get to know Paris by exploring its grand monuments—from the Louvre to the Iron Lady herself, and everything in between, on this private walking tour. Your personalized guide shares engaging commentary along the way. Kick off your tour at the Louvre, the world’s most visited museum, and learn about its history and the art treasures inside. Stroll through the tranquil Tuileries Gardens before arriving at Place de la Concorde. Peer up at the Luxor Obelisk, where a guillotine once stood in the middle of the square during the French Revolution. Along the Seine River, head to the Alexandre III Bridge and admire the Grand Palais, Petit Palais, and Hotel des Invalides. Amble down Champs-Élysées and check out the boutiques that make up the fashion capital of the world. Stop at the famed Ladurée for a macaron before continuing to the Arc de Triomphe that looms over a busy intersection. At Trocadéro, snap photos of the Eiffel Tower in its entirety, and then get up close to the beautiful steel structure that dominates the Parisian skyline.

April in Paris virtual tour . Great for Family , near and far
Nov 2020 • Family
I booked the April in Paris Virtual Tour for my family in Madagascar . I have been living in Paris for many years now and it was so wonderful to be able to show my family in my homeland my adopted home. I have watched April’s tour company flourish over the past years and I knew that this would be the perfect way to let my family explore Paris. Not only the beautiful sites like La Tour Eiffel but some of local areas too. April was charming, funny and informative. My family and I all loved this virtual tour. What a great experience!

Bachelorette Week in Paris
Sep 2019
This review should have been written months ago! Last September, a bunch of my girlfriends joined me in Paris for my bachelorette party! One of them had already done a tour with April and told me about how bubbly and fun she was, saying her day with April was a highlight of her trip. So I booked April for two tours during my girls week to Paris! I love Marie Antoinette so for our first day with April, we took her fabulous Versailles Tour! What a memorable day! April came to meet us at our apartment with Samy, our driver, and off to Versailles we went! We stopped at the local market where we shopped for picnic treats and even did a wine tasting and enjoyed delicious crepes from the charming Karim. When we got to the gardens, we rented bikes and cycled through the beautiful grounds, visiting the Trianons and Marie Antoinettes peasant village!!! It was a dream come true, walking in her footsteps. The picnic was amazing! We had cheese, wine, baguette, macarons, champagne, olives, prosciutto, salami, the list goes on. And the backdrop was the amazing palace!! At the end of the day we went inside the palace. WOW! It’s the most over the top place I’ve ever seen!

For our second tour with April, I asked her to customize an evening out in the Pigalle district. We learned about the history of the neighbourhood, visited some quirky shops, took photos out front of the Moulin Rouge and finished the night in an old brothel, turned cocktail bar. April pointed us in the direction of a dance floor afterwards, where we danced the night away!

Thank you April for making my bachelorette party so memorable! I want to get married again just so we can do it all over!

April is a true historian not to mention a true sweetheart! No other way to describe her besides saying she is AWESOME! My trip would have been ruined if I didn’t have April to assist me with my planning! April assisted my family before, during and after our trip to Paris! April in Paris tour was the best tour I have taken thus far! April customized the tour to include everything she knew we would love to see as well as things we wanted to do and see. She’s your live map, your photographer, your friend and tour guide all wrapped into one!April helped make our Paris trip a trip of a life time!

If you want the BEST TOUR OF PARIS (on ALL accounts) this is it...MAGICAL!!!
Feb 2020
Touring with April was the absolute highlight of my trip to Paris! She will take you on a knowledgeable, thorough and colorful tour all the white making smile and laugh! She knows the new and old alike and can adapt your tour to your particular interests with finely-tuned finesse. And if you don't know what you want to see she goes with her gut--and it's always right! You will not regret it. We covered all of Paris in a day: all the while learning all the history, eating the best macarons as well as amazing GLUTEN FREE crepes (yes she knows where to go for everything) AND we still had energy at the end of the night! Her ability to retain knowledge AND read her clients moods and likes is astounding. She is truly talented. She knows her stuff and LOVES her job. I can't say enough good things about April's tours. As a result, I've referred many friends to her and they have come back with the same result. Consensus: tours with April are a must!

Off the Beaten Path
Jan 2020 • Friends
I’ve been to Paris quite a few times and have followed April on Facebook for about 1 1/2 years. This trip was with girlfriends who had never been to Paris and I wanted to make their trip magical. It worked. They have fallen in love with my favorite city and are planning to return with their spouses. Our day with April was a full day beginning at 10 am and ending around 7:00 pm. We loved acting like a local with her, taking the metro and walking about 8 miles. One of my most memorable moments was finally seeing the 4th Statue of Liberty in Paris. I always make it a point to see the large one near Pont de Bir Hakeim but to see this one so up close was magical. I hope April enjoyed our treat for her to the top of the Montparnasse Tower for sunset and the twinkling view of the Eiffel Tower. It was my pleasure to take her somewhere she had not been in the city. She said I am a true “Left Bank” lover but I have to say I am now quite fond of the “Right Bank”. I will be back in September for my birthday and can’t wait to spend a day or two with April making more discoveries. Merci beaucoup mon ami, tu es un vrai trésor. À bientôt. 💗 Dori.

April was amazing! She gave us so much insight and history about Paris while also being able to adjust to our needs in terms of suggesting restaurants and or cafes to stop along the tour route so we could rest a little and have something to drink! She’s fun and personable. When you book a tour with April you feel like you are being shown around Paris by a dear friend!

Jan 2020 • Friends
Our girlfriend trip to Paris was an experience of a lifetime, and a dream come true thanks to April. Meeting April was just like meeting up with a friend. Her joyful personality made everything more interesting. The Off the Beaten Path Tour was the perfect combination of the history, cafe lifestyle and Parisian culture. We went to a cafe for lunch, and I still think about the fresh bites of burrata, tomatoes, basil and truffle oil. We could have people watched and chatted all day. This is the moment I fell in love with Paris. April showed us streets with small businesses like florals, fresh seafood and veggies that were carefully selected to show on their tables. April took us to the oldest bakery in France, and we enjoyed a hand held creme Brulee, and coffee. "When in Paris...". April gave us history lessons that were jaw dropping and interesting. I'm home now in Florida, still on Paris time, and writing this review is bringing a smile and a softness to my face... remembering our day with April is to remember Paris. ❤

Best way to visit Paris
Dec 2019
We had a custom tour with April and she is absolutely wonderful! So kind, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and so fun!
Since we didn’t want to do super touristy things, April tailored our tour according to everything we had asked and it was beyond our expectations. She is such a joy to be with - her love of Paris exuded throughout the time we spent with her.
If you are in Paris I strongly recommend booking a tour with April it was the best decision we made.

HALF DAY WALKING TOUR AND VERSAILLES BIKE TOUR
Oct 2019
Our experience with April was superb!

We planned to hit the ground running once we arrived in Paris from Los Angeles. As we had a situation with our baggage, we had to delay the start of our Half Day Walking Tour. April could not have been more accommodating. She graciously allowed us time to resolve our situation and at her suggestion, we grabbed a delicious bite to eat prior to our tour. We were able to tour into the early evening to enjoy the city lights!

The next morning April met us at our hotel to escort us via train to Versailles. Once there, we took to the streets on bikes. We stopped by the markets to provision ourselves with local fare. We toured the grounds and then had a lovely outdoor lunch. We got into the Chateau later in the day as to avoid the morning crowds. This was a great plan!

April has so many wonderful tour options and resources for whatever you may need to enhance your Parisian experience. She arranged for car service for us for our airport pick up and for touring during our holiday!

We cannot say enough about her knowledge of the sites, her efficiency and her excellent communication skills! She is happy to assist should you have any issues or delays! Her happy and fun personality made the experience all the better!

April is a fantastic guide! We highly recommend that you book with April in Paris!
