Hi Michael !
We're back home from our trip and thoroughly enjoyed our whole vacation. I'm sorry we didn't have the opportunity to meet you, but Paul was a wonderful host and guide for our tours. The 'William the Conqueror' day in Normandy was one of the highlights of our time in Europe, thanks in large measure to Paul's expertise. We are very grateful to you and Paul for your help in making our trip a delightful experience.
Many thanks again,
We want to thank Frederic and Sandy Tours for a great start to our French vacation. Frederic was a great guide for Malmaison and we enjoyed the visit to both the chateau and church. We have already recommended Sandy Tours to others during our stay in France and we are certain that if they contact you, they will not be disappointed. Thank you again for a great start to our vacation!
C. just landed in the USA.
I want to thank you and Sandrine for making C.'s experience so incredible.
She thoroughly enjoyed her time with the both of you and we are grateful.
She is walking away with and unbelievable amount of knowledge and passion for Paris and its Art History.
Thank you very much for the time and your expertise in bringing us to wonderful places in Paris
It was Amazing ! The food was great, the people were nice and the buildings xere perfectly tailored.
We will never forget our first experience in Paris !!
I Hope by Gods grace and mercy, we will be able to visit again Paris.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you very much and Gob Bless you more and your family.
Thank you so much visit us in the Philippines !
Viva le France !!
Evidently they loved Michael !
Please express our gratitude to Michael and your staff!
I had the pleasure of engaging your firm to provide a day tour of Paris and an equal pleasure of meeting your guide Ms Sandrine E. who did a wonderful job of providing this tour.
With a one day limitation I realized that we would be able to see only a very limited area of Paris mostly for future reference so as to determine if I wanted to visit the City again with my wife at a later time to enjoy it more completely.
I feel we were given the most complete introduction to the City that could have been done by anyone and asked for contact info with your firm so that perhaps she might receive the recognition she disserves for a job well done.

"Private Tour Guide Recommendation"
I recently returned from a trip to London and Paris with my parents and 12 year old daughter and want to highly recommend our Paris tour guide.
Our needs were a little different than most - a knowledgeable guide who could work with us in Paris and take us to Normandy. More specifically, my dad is a WWII vet, was in Normandy and hasn't been back in 63 years.....he's 89.
I highly recommend Michael & Sandrine from Sandytours
Michael and Sandrine are registered with many of the comprehensive tour guide companies in Paris but you can also contact them directly. A husband and wife team, they each have their own specialties and will work with you to make sure your tour is exactly what you want.
In our case, my dad was stationed in St. Lo, and M. set up a visit that my dad will never forget. Because few vets return to this area now (so many are elderly), all are honored guests and my dad received the royal treatment. Two local newspapers covered his visit, and my dad was greeted by the American Cemetery Director. In addition, M.'s understanding of history and politics was comprehensive and sensitive.....
Sandytours also does wonderful tours of Paris and all surrounding areas. They have a very comfortable van which was important in our case, but are happy to do walking tours as well.

We very much enjoyed it.
It was the perfect length for
Us, and Paul was terrific
And most knowledgeable.
Please thank Paul for providing a wonderful trip to Malmaison for us.
We had a great day and were thrilled to see the Chateau.
All the best, Ros and Charlie E.
During our visit to London (January 2017), we did a day trip to Paris. It was our first time in Paris. Sandy did an amazing job as our guide. With her assistance and insight, we were able to visit all the highlights and left with so many memories and a strong desire to return and see so much more. We very much appreciated her patience and flexibility. We so enjoyed our day with her and got so much more out of the experience than we could have ever done on our own. We would highly recommend Sandy and personally thank her!
Our guide Paul was wonderful. We really enjoyed our tour and were so impressed by his knowledge. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
Nous avons passÃ© une trÃ¨s belle journÃ©e Ã Fontainebleau et Ã Vaux-le-Vicomte. Aucun souci question de transport. Guide Aymeric trÃ¨s compÃ©tent et fort sympathique. A recommander mÃªme si la journÃ©e n'est pas bon marchÃ©. Mais elle a valu la peine.
The trip was very educational and learned a lot about Josephine. The guide was very knowledgable and interesting. He was also very courteous. He took us to WWI cemetery with its beautiful view. My companion and I were very impressed.
My experience with Sandy Tours was so great!
From the moment of inquiry, Michael was extremely helpful and accommodating. I was able to set up itineraries from our 2 cruise ports of call that fit our desires.
Our drivers, Fabrice and Paul, were punctual and were waiting for us when we go off the ship.
Fabrice was an absolute dream and made our short time in Paris extremely worth while. He was friendly, informative, considerate and excited to show us around. He made sure that we not only saw the city, but also experienced it through it's history, quirks and fun facts. We hope to return to Paris again some day and will more than likely hire Sandy Tours again.
Paul was also great and informative. He gave us great insight to Mont Saint Michel and took us to such interesting historical sights in remembrance of the D-Day.
Bonjour! We Jim and Kerrianne M. had a lovely tour with Aymeric last month.
We were traveling with my husband's company, and Aymeric took us to Versailles...
Sandrine gave us an exceptional tour of Paris. She is very knowledgable of the city's history and explains all the attractions seen. I highly recommend her service to anyone wanting to learn about Paris.
It's me again!
The ladies called and told me that had the best vacation ever!
They truly enjoyed the tours and the tour guides.
Thank you so much for your assistance and great service.
We miss you! Hope your day in the Loire was great.
We love Paris! Wish you were showing us around - everyone's an amateur compared with you!!
Going to Versailles tomorrow and to the flea market if I get cooperation from the rest of the crew...
We'll see! We all enjoyed our time with you, stay in touch and come visit us in Texas!
Everything has been wonderful in Paris -- and with a special thanks to you!
Everyone is still praising you for Normandy Beach -- which is huge since many this week are professors!
It could not have been better and, of course, I will return with a group next year or later.
I just returned from a Europe trip along to my family and we hired the services of Sandy Tours to discover Paris as well as transfers from/to Charles de Gaulle.
It was just perfect...!
Sandrine is a great guide ,very professional , well prepared and shows great passion for her native city.
Her husband Michael is a passionate of FranceÂ´s history and I enjoyed pretty much by listening his stories about Napoleon while we looked at his tomb at Les Invalides..
I must recommend with 5 stars this company!!.
its seriousness , punctuality , knowledge and sympathy makes the difference...
Thank you Sandrine and Michael...
You made Paris more beautiful by showing us its hidden secrets....
We will return by your hand..
Merci beaucoup pour le tour de Paris que vous nous avez donnÃ© le lundi dernier.
Nous l'avons trÃ¨s bien passÃ©.
Voici la photo que j'avais pris de vous a l'hÃ´tel : vous Ãªtes trÃ¨s bien avec cette expression joviale.
A la prochaine,
Dear Michael: We arrived back in the US late on Wednesday after a lovely trip in Europe.
I wanted to tell you again how much we all enjoyed the trip to Versailles-- the private apartments were very special and your comments were very interesting.
Also,your help at the train station was greatly appreciated. Without the baggage handlers you secured for us, I do not know how we would have done it. They stayed with us until the train arrived and helped us get the baggage on the train.
I will certainly keep in touch and in case we come back to Paris, we will call to reserve your time. Also, I will be happy to recommend you to my friends. Again, many thanks and regards from the entire family. I will tell my daughter-in-law to thank Mr. L. for giving us your name. R.S.
I just want to write you a short note to thank you for your support and willingness, when called for a last minute service at year end.
I spoke to the Clients and they were impressed and more than satisfied with the service you rendered them.
Everything was well schedule, the driver / tour guide was most knowledgeable and friendly. Time was well kept and used to their advantage.
Short cuts to the Louvre and Versailles allowed them more time to enjoy Paris.
The way Paris was presented ; they fall in love with the city.
Thank you so much for your tour and all of your help. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip !!
Thank you for taking Eve and me on a tour of Marais today. It was exactly what we were looking for ! The history of both the neighborhood and of Jews in Paris and France. We enjoyed your stories and hearing the history of your family in France as well.
While Paris is a magical city all on its own, Michael of Sandy Tours (www.sandytours.com) provided a wonderful personalized perspective.
Having a guide our first day eased any concerns or confusion of exploring unknown areas on our own. Michael's breadth of knowledge, flexibility, sense of humor and easy compatibility made for a most informative and enjoyable tour!
We highly recommend Michael and Sandy Tours !!
Happy Travelers from Connecticut
Estuvimos muy contentos con nuestros dos dÃas de visita: Castillos de la Loira y Versalles. Los dos guias Sandrine y Jean tuvieron muy buenos comentarios e historias que hicieron que el tiempo de visita pasara volando. Mis dos hijos de 6 aÃ±os fueron muy felices. Nos gusto mucho que los guÃas fueran muy accesibles y no rigidos, ellos tomaron en cuenta nuestras preferencias. TambiÃ©n nos encanto haber parado en Amboise, fue una excelente recomendaciÃ³n por parte de Jean. La prÃ³xima vez que vayamos de visitas seguramente los contactaremos y tambiÃ©n los recomendaremos con nuestros amigos.
You took us on a tour yourself which was fantastic. We went to see the two Le Corbusier houses on the outskirts of Paris.
What a memorable day that was.
I know you organised a day trip for the .. family to the Cathedral at Chartres. They loved it.
My wife and I will be in Paris for two weeks in June and we are hoping we might meet up with you again.
There are a couple of tours we thought you may be able to organise.
I hope this email finds you fit and well and still able to look after visitors like ourselves.
To our wonderful guide
Our trip to Paris was extra special because of you and our skillful driver!
We apprecialted your exuberance, wonderful descriptions, and historical commentary.
Merci beaucoup. C'Ã©tait formidable !
Sorry for the delay in getting in touch with you regarding our trip.
It was wonderful! Would not have changed a thing. I really wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our guide/driver in Paris.
He was awesome. The trip would not have been the same without him.
Please make sure to request him in the future.
We all want to thank you for the time you spent with us to make our trip very memorable.
Please keep in touch and come visit us in Southern California!
Thank you for giving us an extraordinary experience in Paris and environs.
We are home after a great adventure with you. I have given your name to my son who is travelling to Paris in December with his wife and 6 children.
Again, many thanks.
Thank you so much for driving us everywhere today !
