Adeline exceeded expectations. Our university students really enjoyed her commentary as well as her helpful suggestions to enhance their Parisian experience.

On behalf of my wife and grandaughters I want once again to

express our profound gratitude to you for providing us with a wonderful Parisian experience.

Since arriving back home they have all been speaking with their parents about
how wondrous the experience was, how they love Paris, and how YOU
especially made it seem like a second "home" to them.
It is an experience we will all treasure as long as we live.

Our 2nd guided tour with Adeline took us through the Latin Quarter and other nearby arrondissements. She brought to life the significant institutes of knowledge, the Roman past, and life today. Our walk was beautiful, she arranged for us to enter several facilities, and she was full of recommendations for how to enjoy Paris today. Her recommendations were outstanding. Adeline knows Paris and its history and comprehensively communicates meaningful information in clear and well-phrased English.

Brilliant tour from a Marais Native!
Was staying in the Marais at the Bed and Breakfast: Hotel Bonne Nuit, Paris ( and was introduced to Adeline by her father the owner of the hotel. Took an afternoon walking tour of the Marais with her. Adeline is remarkably knowledgeable and really gives you a feeling of knowing the Marais and by extension, Paris, She has a way of weaving a detailed and colorful pattern of why Paris is the city it is, not just pointing out landmarks and a few facts about them. She is also really good at filtering her presentation to the interests of individuals in the tour group so it is really relevant and fun for everyone. Her casual style makes the whole experience feel easy going and relaxing. Cannot say enough good things about the tour

We took two tours with Adeline (Esprit de Paris) during our recent trip and she was the best part of Paris! My husband and I and our friends (another couple) explored the Marais with Adeline. She grew up in this neighborhood and knows a tremendous amount about the history and the architecture. Adeline showed us the many hidden gems in this area – spots we would never discover on our own. She is energetic, enthusiastic, and friendly. We felt instantly at ease and the time flew by. A few days later, Adeline was the guide for my friend and I along with our teenage daughters around Saint-Germain des Prés. She was amazing again! Adeline was able to teach the girls some history along with her great shopping advice – the teenagers loved her! If you want to learn about the city with a charming Paris native, I highly recommend Adeline. She’s marvelous!

I booked this tour with Adeline as a birthday present for my wife, and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. Adeline is charming, intelligent, and friendly. Moreover, before we even arrived in Paris, she took the time, through email, to understand exactly what we wanted from the tour. She created the perfect Parisian experience for us. Thank you, Adeline!

No one can ask for a more courteous, pleasant, and knowledgeable tour guide than Adeline M. She not only knows the neighborhood "ins and outs" of Montmartre, where we toured, she is extremely well versed in the history of Montmartre, Paris, France, and all of Europe. That made for a most interesting conversation while we looked at an area new to me.

Besides that, Adeline accommodated my particular interest in Erik Satie and music of the Impressionist era, including much more information than I could have imagined getting about the lifestyles of the great artists of that day. She integrated that information with the history of the area and the history of Paris in ways that made it very interesting.

We also had the opportunity to talk about how the history of "then" merges and informs the events of today. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon!

Adeline was excellent. We would use her again.

Paul Gilbert On 27/11/2011

Adeline was an amazing guide for our trip to Paris! We worked with her for three full days and she was consistently helpful, knowledgeable, pleasant and professional. She is a very intelligent, happy and positive person - a true joy to be around in a new city. I asked that she show us the neighborhoods of Paris and give me a sense of how Parisians live. Not only did she do this perfectly, she also made certain that we saw all of the great attractions. Her knowledge of history and of Paris is extraordinary!

Dear Adeline,

It is meant with much gratitude for making our Paris trip perfect! Our day in the most special Montmartre was amazing...all the special places that tourist will not have the chance to see unless they spent the day with you! Loretta and I could not say enough about our day spent with you there. You made our day so special...sharing information about you and your family...we felt as if we had lived there through your lovely eyes. I wish I were younger , I could live in Paris for a while ...I would like to be able to contact you when we come to Paris again.

Thank you for showing us Montmartre and making us feel a part of the French life style spent with you that day.

Again, thank you for the best day we had there in Paris....and France....please keep in touch my friend!
