Claire was my guide and she was amazing! I got lucky and ended up on a 1:1 tour so I got to ask lots of questions based on personal interest. Claire was extremely knowledgeable, a good story teller and an amazing English speaker. Skipping the long lines at Arc de Triomphe should be reason enough for anyone considering this experience to DO IT! Thanks again, Claire! You were great!

Tour gives a great overview and history of the area. For example how it is a Gathering place for Paris. I learned a bit about World War I and World War II generals and leaders. Specifically because of the statues around the palaces.
