Paris Kickstart Tour with a Local

Mischa was very friendly and knowledgeable! Our flight was delayed an hour and she was very accommodating in changing the start time for our tour. She gave a great tour of the area around Notre Dame and even showed us a few hidden gems! Would definitely recommend Mischa!
