    Besides a couple of technical glitches, our audience enjoyed seeing Paris and the information and humor that Elysse shared. Thank you for offering this tour! It was our largest attendance yet!

    Elyesse was energetic and obviously excited to share his knowledge of architecture and history with us. We found his accent a bit heavy for our old failing ears at times but we still learned many things about the island thanks to Elyesse!

    Elysse is very knowledgeable about Isle de la cite. We visited Paris in December 2007, went into Norte Dame, but didn’t have an opportunity to walk around. Loved learning about the history of the island, architecture through the ages, and hidden gems. I’d love to return, in person, one day.

    Elysse did a great job of helping us get to know Paris's Ile de la Cite. Good insights into the history, buildings, bridges and people of the area. Many thanks!

    I loved walking the streets of Paris with you. I wish the internet connection was consistent. Thank you for share your love of the historical area.

    Experienced and knowledgeable guide. Good views altho the time of day (twilight) made the scenes a bit darker than I might have liked. Brought back memories of my trips to Paris
