Silvia fue muy profesional, increíble toda la información y datos históricos que nos enseñó y se notaba que es profesora porque se preocupaba para que comprendiéramos todo. Como sugerencia, sacaría algunos lugares y reforzaría con más tiempo otros, como la parte del Panteón y agregaría Jardines de Luxemburgo.

Silvia, una gran conocedora de la ciudad y de la zona. Buena comunicadora, no sólo de la información-cultura-historia sino también de la vida parisina. Recomendable.

Muy conforme. Silvia es muy amable, informada y hace el tour ameno. No es para nada cansador desde el punto de vista físico y es un recorrido interesante. Nos dejo entrar a dos Iglesias para observar su interior cosa que nunca me había pasado en un walking tour.

Excelente tour para descubrir joyitas ocultas de París, aprender sobre sus orígenes romanos y época medieval. Silvia es muy amena y sabe muchísimo sobre la ciudad. Me ha encantado descubrir el barrio latino con ella.
