I simply loved the tour with Diane. In general, I like tours that look at a city from a certain angle – thanks to Diane, I learned so much about the life and times of fashion in Paris, important persons, changing society there, and more. It’s a really good sign that I remembered very much of the information afterwards and have told many of the anecdotes and details to friends. 100% recommendation!
