Alex gave us a private tour of the Montmartre and Sacre' Coeur are of Paris. He's a delete and provided us with insights into the area that are routinely missed and ignored. We saw areas that seemed very isolated that one would not know you were in a major city like Paris. It had windmills and a vineyard. What a a delightful experience.

We had a wonderful day at Versailles today with Alex. He was everything we had expected from reviews and more! Super friendly and down to earth, amazing with our kids (9 years old and 12 years old), and just overall pleasant and entertaining. We all learned so much, and with colorful and intriguing stories. Our kids were mesmerized for 6 hours straight. We would opt for a tour with Alex again in a heartbeat!! Don't miss out on an opportunity to tour with Alex in Paris, Barcelona or anywhere in the world...you will not be sorry that you did!

We just sent a day and a half with Alex in Paris and wish would could spend more time with this amazing guide and human being. Yesterday we did a half day walking tour of Paris and were amazed at his knowledge and passion for the history and architecture of this city. You can tell he is the real deal. He told wonderful stories, provide interesting details and showed us more in a half day that we could have seen in a week on ourselves. Today he took us down to the Champagne region for the day. Again, he provided wonderful stories and great detail into the art and science of champagne making. Alex is incredibly flexible and does whatever he can to make sure you not only have a great experience, but the best possible one. No question goes unanswered and all done with charm and smile. Aside from being an amazing tour guide, he is just a wonderful human being. Don't miss out on a great opportunity. Book Alex NOW!!!!

THIS REFERS TO A TOUR OF BARCELONA WITH ALEX Fascinating 2/2.5 hour tour around the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona with the highly entertaining & theatrical Alex. Lots if interesting history facts to place the city in its current context, along with quirky customs & leisure pursuits. Highly enjoyable - the time flew by.

Alex is an excellent tour guide able show you the sights in a unique way - yes, you've already seen this church but did you know that... - and seems to have lots of unexpected stories up his sleeve. We started the tour quite late in the afternoon and were already tired from walking around, but his contagious energy and good mood made the tour a great experience! I highly recommend!
