Here's what our customers say about how much there is to do in Paris:"It was a true Paris experience, the neighborhood, metro transit, the comfort of an apartment to come home to in the midst of this great city." Louise Napoli
"Jennifer was lovely, warm, welcoming, and a font of information and ideas. To put it plainly, it's possible to rent an apartment on one's own and make the travel plans on one's own but Untours offers so much more by having on-site staff available as advisors, information resources, and organizers for the local social event. The dinner at the The Navigator in the Latin Quarter was one of the most convivial meals I've had amongst new acquaintances . . . and the food was beyond superb!" Erin Moore
"The main theme that we arrived at was that Paris is a very broad experience, with art, architecture, shopping opportunities, and especially the multi-faceted dimensions of the millions of people with whom we interacted. When we became comfortable with the aspects of getting around, we spent most of the time walking through the various districts, looking at the sights, and people watching and interacting. That was the best part!" Helen D. Taylor
"The trips to Normandy and Giverny - they had both been on my Bucket List for several years. The friendliness of the Parisians and their eagerness to stop to see if we needed help if we were reading a map or directed us to the correct bus stops or fruit stores. We had heard that Parisians were rude and there were pick-pockets but I felt almost safer than at home in Alabama! And the beauty of the architecture-wow!" Karen Voelker
"I'd stay a third week! My visit to Paris was everything I wanted it to be and graced with a few delightful surprises as well. I wouldn't change a thing. Well. . . ok. . . I'd pack lighter." Janice Diane
"We love untours because the apartments are in a safe location with lovely hosts to guide you we recommend untours to all our friends. We loved Paris even though we heard that they did not like Americans I was so pleased that was not our experience at all everyone was so helpful and kind." Suzanne Lung
"The food was great and the location in Monmartre, with its easy access to the metro and the surrounding neighborhood with shops that met our needs, was ideal. Even the meal at the Navigator was an unexpected bonus. Joanna and staff did their job well." Ken & Diane Ray
"The Paris Untour was certainly my favorite Untours and I will certainly continue to use your agency again and again! Thank you!" Victoria Garza
"Untours is the best way to travel in Paris!" Marie Neary
"We learned so much about France & its people by taking this trip!" Yvonne DelBiaggio
"Untours travel in Paris is making us lazy travellers!...Untours takes care of everything." John & Susan Brandt
"Paris is such a fabulous city and the French are really a passionate, wonderful people." Charles & Rose Mc Kenna
"Everything promised was delivered on the Paris Untour." Paul Chandlor
"Monet, organ concerts, and a castle trip to Tours...there's nothing we would have changed about the Paris Untour." Dale & Pat Boweu
"With access to two Metro lines, all of Paris was there for the taking…and we explored every area, every little street and grand boulevard, every museum that we could, most of it on foot. What a beautiful, diverse and romantic city!! Without knowing it, we fell right into that Parisian rhythm of the relaxed joy of living." Bill and Rita Vandeburgh
