    This was the best! Knowledgeable guide walked us all through the old city of Paris, Notre Dame and into the Latin Quarter. Got us to all the sites and explained everything we saw. Wonderful stories and information. Be prepared to walk and wear comfortable shoes.

    Honestly this was one of the best tour experiences ever. Agatha was very knowledgeable and engaging. I recommend Babylon tours (and especially Agatha) to anyone. Agatha even pointed out cool notables like the jazz club Nina Simone played in, or Dalis non working sundial Can't wait to come back to Paris and tour the catacombs with them! Thank you so much

    I had a great personal tour with Heidi, the tour guide. She was very informative and had a wealth of knowledge. The area toured was very interesting and full of history. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as you are in for a hike up hill. She gave me a lot of unknown background information on the artists and history of the area. I recommend this tour for anyone who loves art or history. Ask for Heidi.

    Our guide, Tina, is a very educated and knowledgeable tour guide. She was very catering to our situation which was my friend, 89 years old, in a wheelchair. We would have loved to spend the entire day with her.

    Josephine was our guide. She was excellent. 5 stars!! So much knowledge which was accompanied by wonderful stories about each different era. She answered all our questions, had an iPad with maps/portraits that showed us what used to be versus what things look like now.
