“Allison’s tour of Bastille Markets was the highlight of my four days in Paris.  She is very knowledgeable about Paris and its history – kept us laughing all morning – and our time with her went too fast and was too short!  I would recommend any of her tours – and will definitely do others when I return.  Thank you for a wonderful time!”

“Allison you made my trip to Paris the most amazing trip of my life!  Your little antidotes brings a whole new meaning to this magical city!  Your passion for Paris was so over the top our group fell in love with you and Paris. Your concierge service was awesome!  You made out trip effortless and your recommendations were outstanding.  Thank you for directing us to Fontainebleau instead of Versailles and Musee d’Orsay instead of The Louvre we couldn’t have been happier with these choices. Thank you for setting up our dinner reservations and keeping us abreast of when to get those fabulous skip the line passes for the  Eiffel Tower and the Catacombs.  To say you went beyond the call of duty is an understatement.   Anyone that even mentions they want to go to Paris I will give them your information.  You are the absolute best!”

“Thank you so much Allison for a wonderful walking tour.  You are so interesting and fun and I enjoyed the tour very much.  I recommend a tour with Allison and you will learn a lot, have a great time, and she is the best at guiding you along while in Paris.”

“Talk about a fun trip! Wanting to make the most of our visit to Paris, we booked a personalized tour with Allison. She was intimately familiar with what to see, what to avoid, and how best to get around. So many interesting things to see and do in Paris―we didn’t want to miss a thing! We had such a good time! Allison listened to our requests, customized a tour specifically for us, and was easily accessible via email and texting for all the questions we had along the way. She’s knowledgeable about so many aspects of the city and is a real pro. We especially liked the Marche of Bastille, where we got crepes and some really nice souvenirs.
I work for a major airline and am offered these types of guides and tour options all the time, and I have to say Alison is the head-and-shoulders above the rest.
Thanks, Allison, for showing us the best of Paris and for taking such good care of us!”

“I went to Paris for the first time last spring and had no idea how I was going to navigate the foreign city. I wanted to see everything but had no idea what was worth seeing or what was worth skipping, etc. Thank goodness for Allison’s tour!!! She created an experience that matched what I wanted to see. For example, I really wanted to try falafel in paris because a friend of mine had recommended it. So, Allison took us to the Jewish quarter in Paris and we ate falafel at L’As du Fallafel (SO amazing by the way). Additionally, I wanted to put a love lock on the bridge and she also made that possible- so sweet!
We saw everything from the Notre Dam, Arc de Triumph, Eiffel Tower, Moulin Rouge, Montmartre, and much more. I didn’t feel like I was wasting my time at all, in fact I don’t think my experience in Paris would have been the same without her guidance. Looking back, the tour was such an great way to see the city and the next time I go I will definitely be getting in contact with Allison again. I would 10/10 recommend this! Thank you, Allison!!!”

“Personal Tours Paris & San Francisco is the only way to see Paris! Allison is the ultimate host and guide. She’s bilingual, educated, energetic, and knowledgeable. She had the whole city mapped for us, and every day was a great adventure in a new arrondissement (municipal area). Allison was so knowledgeable about the areas, but also the life and culture of the areas. She’s a sommelier and foodie, and there’s nobody better to cruise Pairs with than her!!! We saw, experienced, ate, and drank all of Paris – and could have done it all again immediately! That’s the sign of a great time, made so by a tremendous host. Follow the advice and guidance of Allison, and you’ll have the time of your life.”

“Allison is incredibly knowledgeable about activities in and around Paris. She is up to date on seasonal activities like concerts in the park, giving great suggestions for shopping, dinner, wine bars, and markets. I definitely would enlist her services if you want to be in the know on the best and greatest in Paris.”

“Good as it gets!! We have known Allison for several years because of her terrific wine tours that she gave us in Napa. It was a easy decision to connect with her again when we decided to spend our 25th anniversary in Paris. We connected for two full days of customized tours in Paris that were exceptional. We saw the cultural side of Paris as well as the off the beaten path neighborhoods full of activity and great food. We hit markets and drank spritzers at cozy cafes. The blend of food and historical sites made for two very full enjoyable days with Allison. We can’t recommend her services more highly as a personal guide in Paris or San Francisco. Merci Beaucoup Allison”
