Went on this tour with my daughter. When we met up with our guide we found out we were the only two on the trip so we had a private tour! Our guide was great and we had such a great time! He went to college in Alabama and spoke perfect English with a southern accent which was adorable. He would also speak English with a French accent if you wanted him too. He was extremely informative and gave us an excellent tour. We looked him up when we got home and found him on the internet giving private VIP tours at Versailles so you know he is great. The tour itself was also wonderful. Very informative and interesting.

This was a fantastic tour, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Paris and in particular St. Denis. I went with my Son age 12 and my Father and all of us really enjoyed it. It is an overwhelming experience and the information from Mahoun Im sorry I am unsure of the spelling made it even better.

Wonderful trip to St. Denis with an equally wonderful and knowledgeable guide.....We had visited St. Denis in the past, but this tour gave us so much more insight into the history of this magnificent basilica. We feel that St. Denis is a place not often visited by the majority of tourists, which is really a mistake as there is more history and beauty in this church than in most of the other churches in Paris combined..
This is a tour we very highly recommend....

Our guide, Herve, made the visit to Basilica St. Denis such a wonderful experience. I'm really glad I opted to go - and to go with a tour. It's easy enough to visit on your own, but hearing about the history of the Basilica and France from a knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide really brought it all to life.

Great tour. Very knowledgeable guide. We've been to Paris many times and have seen this site but have never taken an official tour of the place. Learned some new things about the basilica.
