Reviews for Navigate Paris

I truly cannot thank Anne enough for the confidence and enthusiasm she gave me for this amazing city. This was my first big trip alone, and I was very nervous about many aspects of it....until my first morning, with Anne at my side! Making this connection through Vayable was the best decision of my trip! Anne's tips led to many wonderful memories, long after our short time together. I'll sound like I'm gushing to list her attributes....adorable, personable, practical, knowledgable, fun....and somehow able to instantly make you feel like you are an old friend. I will return to Paris and I will book another tour with Anne :-)

Anne was so lovely! She really made the effort to show us what we were looking for. We've-my au pair friends and I- have been living in the outskirts of Paris for about 8 months, so we knew the general arrondissements, but wanted a local's perspective. Before meeting up, Anne asked us our favorite areas, and told us all about those areas, as well as places we hadn't known as much information about. I love Le Marais, and she showed me all the great shops I could go to when I was off work, as well as different local artists and opportunities available that I never could've learned without the tour. I would definitely recommend her to everyone, visiting or local! Thank you Anne!

My first trip to Paris was August 2016 and I booked Anne to give me the confidence to explore/navigate the city as a solo traveler. Anne exceeded my expectations. I roamed all over Paris like a pro on my 2nd day and my obsession with Paris was born. When I had an opportunity to return to Paris in November 2016 I hoped Anne would be available again. Thankfully she was and this time she showed me Montmarte and WOW...best tour ever! While she was showing me all the various street art in the area we came across Levalet (street artist) being filmed with his artwork by a German TV crew from Berlin for a gallery open of his work. Seriously, it's like Anne is covered in pixie dust and if you're with her cool things just happen. She is a delight to talk to and her knowledge of art, design and Paris make her the trifecta of fabulousness. I can't say enough awesome things about her. But don't just take my word for it...book a tour with her and experience it yourself. You won't be disappointed. You can bet that I will book a tour with her each time I visit, no matter how many times I go.

Can you please tell me if you entertain a single person tour

Our morning in Montmarte with Anne D. was fun and easy. She is wonderfully approachable and was able to come up with an itinerary that accommodated my 80-year old mother perfectly. Merci Anne!

I enjoyed my afternoon with Anne in what little is left of Medieval Paris. I sprang my tour request ion her at the last minute. Anne responded quickly and graciously. We walked and rode the Metro in a Tuesday afternoon, ending up at Gobelins. I will definitely take another walking tour with Anne next time I am in Paris

Fabulous! Anne knows this city inside out and is a terrific guide. She's also great fun to spend time with. Arranging a tour with Anne at the start of your visit is a wonderful way to get the most out of your stay; she'll show you how to ride public transportation, teach you insider tips on finding clean public restrooms, and point out attractions and destinations based on your own interests, as well as the things everyone comes to Paris to see. Highly, highly recommended!

Anne D. was a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable. She gave us great suggestions to explore after the tour on our own and we ended up following several of them. The tour was a wedding gift for my husband and he loved it--he said it was his favorite part of our trip. It was great to walk around with a local and get some context for how things work. Anne catered the tour to our interests. We wanted to hang out with her for longer!

Anne was accommodating and informative and provided my friend and me with a great re-introduction to Paris. I highly recommend this tour as a means of orienting yourself in the city. Anne did a great job of providing us with information and cool spots in each arrondismont. We saw parts of the city that we never would have without her guidance. I highly recommend seeing this tour with Anne.

On May 3, my wife and I were taken on the Paris Design tour and we had a wonderful time. We visited or saw a large number of quaint and charming places in the 3rd Arrondissement and in the process we learned a number practical and helpful points of information to increase our enjoyment of our time in Paris. Anne Ditmer was engaging, well informed, responsive, and forthcoming with lots of interesting items of information and help. She was fun to be with. In this tour, we covered a lot of ground. We recommend the Paris DEsign tour. BILL BOGAARD

My wife and I travelled to Paris for the very first time from April 26 through May 6 and booked with Anne. It was a perfect and proper orientation for first time Paris travelers. With the confidence Anne delivered, my wife and I visited Reims, The Palace of Versailles and dozens of sites around the city. We enjoyed travel by Metro, RER and rail. It was a marvelous adventure and the trip of a lifetime. Anne's primer really made it all come together for us! Highly recommended!

We loved our tour with Anne. She kept the attention of all of our group: two people comfortable with Paris, one first time visitor and two children enthralled with being there. She was thoughtful and full of information, but mindful of not being overwhelming. Very well done. We did the tour on our first day in the city and it was perfect! Thank you Anne!

I got in touch with Anne for a last minute tour and she was super responsive. My tour was scheduled for the day before my final day in Paris (I was there for a week). I highly recommend doing this early on in your trip to get the most out of your time there. Anne will share tips on how to really enjoy Paris's many beautiful neighborhoods. She's friendly and knowledgeable and you'll have a great time.

Anne is an exceptional and talented guide. She combines her interests in art, culture, literature, not to forget her invaluable practical advice, into a complete and enjoyable adventure. She tailored our time together specific to my requests and added her cheerful, friendly personality to a most memorable time. I highly recommend you take three hours of your time in Paris to walk with Anne. She will not only provide you with simple suggestions that will enrich your experience, but unique and special anecdotes that you will remember long after your time in this magical city is over.

Great communication when booking this experience! We had a wonderful time walking around Paris and learning some really cool things about the city that we would've never known if we had gone on a normal touristy tour. Hanging out with Anne was extremely enjoyable and she is so smart! Anne took us to some spots we wanted to check out, but didn't know much about the spots (Promenade Plantee and Rue Cremieux) and gave us some tips for photos! She also brought us to a few passage ways (and a stationary/art shop) and a fantastic croissant/madeline bakery. I highly recommend this experience if you are coming to Paris and want to explore beyond the typical tourist spots.

Highly recommend! It was our first time in Paris, and Anne met us at our apartment and cheerfully got us on our way. We walked for a bit and got the scoop on shops in the area, a little bit on Etiquette, and some solid tips on understanding the Metro on our way up to the Paris Flea Market. It was a great way for us to ease into this wonderful city and bypass the "touristy" route. Thanks Anne!

Booking Anne our first day in Paris was totally worth the jet lag and droopy eyes. Anne asked us lots of questions in advance about what interests us. She showed us her favorite coffee / tea spot, lots of off the beaten path spots that we wouldn't have known to explore, and helped us navigate the Metro. By the end of our four nights in Paris we were pros! Thanks for the restaurant recommendations too, Anne! We ended up going to the hummus / pita place (name escapes me right now) and that cauliflower was to die for.

This was our second tour with Anne and it was delightful. She met us at our hotel, and guided us to our chosen destination via the Metro and provided excellent advice for our return trip on the bus. She takes all opportunities to explain where and how to explore Paris. Our chosen destination to explore was the Paris Flea Market, and Anne did a great job of getting us there before the crowds and guiding us through the various individual markets. She translated for us as we purchased items from the vendors. I highly recommend Anne for tours of Paris.
