I made a request while I was in Paris, not knowing that I should have requested at least two weeks in advance. Nonetheless, I received an email from Robert who offered me a three hour walking tour of his Passy neighbourhood. Despite my being a half hour late (I kept him updated throughout), Robert was very gracious and forgiving. I didn’t know what to expect and although I am not stereotypical in my desire (a lack of, actually) to see the top tourist must-do’s, Robert took me on an amazing journey through time and history. He provided so many fascinating insights that I was, to my own surprise, spellbound. While looking at Maria Callas’s former residence, the current resident and owner was walking up and he stopped to talk with us. Very cool! One funny thing I must mention is that Robert is like a sheep herding dog when it comes to keeping you from getting run over by a car, on those busy streets! I can’t recommend this greeter and his tour highly enough. Superb!
