What a treat! In general I am not one that enjoys the shopping experience very much however, the guide was A+ and the selection and prices were fantastic. The next time I return to Paris I will sign up for the tour again earlier in the trip and purchase luggage in addition to a new wardrobe.Reviewed by: Janice J, January 2013
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! We were spoiled in that we had our guide exclusively to ourselves and she catered the tour to our interests. Starting off at Au Bon Marche our guide provided us with an overview of current trends before taking us to the various shops. We were able to find jackets, bags, jewellery, knitwear, toys and housewares at significantly reduced prices. Additionally, we were able to chat at length and received insights into French culture and life. This tour was worth every cent!Reviewed by: BobDalton, October 2012
Guide was very good and purchases were very cost effective.Reviewed by: Will, October 2012
The tour guide was so very nice, but this excursion was not what we thought it would be. Really, we had someone tagging along with us. The guide was a person that was employed in the fashion industry, yet her clothes were old, weathered and out of date. With that said, I really liked her. She had wonderful enthusiasm and was so very kind. We thought we were going to a shopping district that would be discount designer clothing etc. Instead the guide walked you up/down streets of regular shops, pointed out that items were on sale because of end of season, and encourage you to try on clothes., yet other people on the 'tour' might be waiting to move on - it was awkward.Reviewed by: estockford, August 2012
The worse experience I ever had. The guide took us to some back street and very small shops with very little used merchandise which seem to have been used for at least four to five years. Nothing was like the description of this tour. I would never recommend this to any of my friend. The time and money spent was totally wasted.Reviewed by: JAMES K A, July 2012
