Virtual tours of Versailles and the Orsay museum

Elisa is a very knowledgeable and engaging guide. I have used Elisa several times during lockdown to host museum and other visits for team and client events. These online events have all been a great success. Elisa is very professional in all her interactions and has a lovely manner.

Virtual guided tour: Paris Overview from the Seine River

Five stars! My work colleagues and I decided to go with the virtual "Paris Overview from the Seine River" tour as a team building event and we were very happy in choosing Elisa. She is very knowledgeable and made the experience truly fantastic for everyone. I hope to one day travel to Paris to go on a real tour with Elisa once the pandemic is over but the virtual option was still a great experience and is highly recommended.

Virtual Tour of Paris from the rooftops

Virtual tour of Paris from the rooftops - Team event

I had the opportunity to have this guided virtual tour experience around famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and other monuments. Despite of the fact that I've visited them before, Elisa show us an incredible view, even remote, and at the same time, told us some curiosities about them. I think that in current days is a good idea to visit or re-visit this beautiful city and with Elisa's interactivity is even better! Tatiana

 

It was quite interesting. I was in Paris more than 10 years ago and it was an opportunity to revisit the city as it is today and learn some history about the city. Elisa was excellent, very clear and communication was very noticeable. Rui

 

The tour was good, it gave you a taste of what you can see in Paris. We have started with the Eiffel Tour and it was very educational. Elisa told us lots of peculiar information it. I felt that the others places were not presented in the same way, but I understand this is what was possible to with the time we had. We had access to parts that we probably would not have access to on a regular tour, for i.e we we able to "go" inside the Grand Palais. Elisa was great, it was pleasant to listen to her, she was friendly. Her honest smile gave the human interaction we needed for this virtual tour. Thanks again and wishing you success for the tours to come! Ana

 

It was really nice to see Paris without leaving my house. Learn the buildings and Paris history it is always a nice experience. I really liked it and recommend it. Mariana

 

A really nice virtual tour and very clear explanation. I have already been to Paris a couple of years ago and to be there again - even if virtually - was a really nice experience: I was shown some monuments i had no time to visit during that long week end trip. I recommend the tour and I would enjoy virtual tours of other towns, or for example the Loire Valley. P.s. the tour reminded me to avoid visiting such big cities with new shoes :) Silvia

 

Was good relieving some of the sights of Paris and also very surprised about some facts like Montmartre's story! Rui.

 

Elisa has made me truly travel. Her immersive descriptions and carefully chosen and narrated stories abut the places and buildings chosen to present Paris really made me feel there and involved. I felt connected and it was very good. Thank you and keep up the good work! Vicente

Virtual Tour of the Orsay museum

Virtual tour of the Orsay museum

I book a visit of the Orsay museum as a birthday gift to a friend and something fun to do together. 

We both LOVED it! It was very entertaining, and Elisa did an excellent job at giving us interesting context for both the museum itself, and the paintings she showed us.

My friend told me after the tour: "I was a bit skeptical.. how good can a virtual tour of a museum be? It turns out the answer is: awesome! I could practically smell Paris." A huge compliment from someone who had visited Orsay multiple times before. Highly recommended!

Ideal para una actividad en familia en estos dias de confinamiento. Elisa es una excelente guia, con perfecto dominio de la lengua española y los medios técnicos a su disposición para hacer esta visita. Toda la familia la disfrutó, los que nunca habían estado en Paris sintieron que ya fueron, y los que ya habían estado, recordaron momentos muy agradables. Seguramente haremos otras de las visitas con Elisa. La recomendamos sin duda.

Virtual Tour of the Orsay museum

A transporting virtual tour

My husband and I took a private virtual tour of the Musée d'Orsay on Sunday afternoon and had a wonderful time. Elisa was so knowledgeable, told interesting stories about the art and artists, and made us feel like we had the museum to ourselves. She made sure to encourage us to ask any questions we had, and always added interesting details when she answered them. I give this tour my highest recommendation. We can't wait to have her lead us on another tour when we can finally visit Paris again.

Virtual Tour of Paris from the Seine River

Elisa joined us virtually for our team holiday event and she was fantastic! She “walked” us through Paris and gave us historical but also fun tidbits about each area we saw. She was knowledgeable, entertaining and also very professional. Our team appreciated being transported to another country momentarily and forget that we’re stuck in Canada in a pandemic. 

Thank you Elisa! Your services will certainly be recommended!

Louvre museum

Simply top

Elisa has been our guide during a 3h30min private visit of the most known and famous masterpieces and galleries of Louvre museum. We had a great time there!

She is a very knowledgeable, professional and emphatic person; she is able to talk in detail about history topics but also to tell anecdotes about masterpieces and artists.

We will definitely come back for a second visit and we will choose Elisa again.

Virtual tour of the Versailles Palace

Awesome Virtual Tour of Versailles

Our family was looking for something enjoyable and educational during this challenging time staying at home for weeks, and Elisa's virtual tour of Versailles was perfect! My family in California, my parents in Florida, and my sister's family in the Carolinas all joined Elisa for a one hour live guided tour through Versailles Palace (using Google Arts and Culture's 3D mapping so it was like being there - but with no other people/crowds!). Elisa's commentary and insights, and her eagerness to respond to questions, made the experience interactive and engaging for our tri-generational group. And, at only 80 Euros for the hour, we received a lot of value for our money. Cannot recommend enough.

The artists in Montmartre

A very different view of Montmartre

A few Saturdays ago, some very good friends asked if we would like to join them and their little dog on a 2-hour guided tour of Montmartre [...]

It was an excellent visit. There were so many little side streets that I had never been to; buildings I knew as a “site”, but not in terms of their history; little parks; who the statues were and why they were there; the old entrances to the metro stations and much more….also she introduced us to Flashinvader [...] but beware, it is addictive, though if you are bringing kids, then it’s a big bonus

She did not bother doing the normal sites; that was not the purpose. Rather it was about the long gone, hidden history. During my French studies all those years ago, I had read most of the books and poems we discussed; since when, I had probably seen most of the art referred to (BTW, just don’t miss the Musee d’Orsay or even the little museum in Montmartre itself) and heard the music

She was very patient, answered all our questions, had enlarged photos of everything so you could understand what Montmartre used to look like all those years ago ie being outside of Paris then

One more thing. We all speak fluent French, but she spoke seriously good English, both in terms of vocabulary but also accent, which is just as important for understanding

Oh, wear sensible shoes - if you didn't know, its very up and down

We had a great time and fully recommend Elisa to you

Half day private Versailles tour

Visited Versailles with Elisa. It was a very nice trip with great insightful sharing from her. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and she even went out of her way to check if our Eurostar trip would be impacted by the strike and recommended other places to explore and dine during our stay in Paris. Thumbs up!!!

Paris by Foot!

We toured the Ile de Cite area of Paris with Elisa for several hours. She had to substitute Saint Chappell for Notre Dame which was very interesting to see . Her information was excellent and she answered all our questions. She knew exactly where to go at the right time to avoid the lines. Elisa was very adaptable to changing anything we needed along the way to be sure we were happy with the tour especially in The Louvre. She even followed up with suggestions by email for some shopping areas we needed

Highly recommend her as your Paris on foot guide. Sadly we forgot to taker her photo as we usually do with our guides so I am posting one of me from our walk with her along the Seine .

Wonderful Tour Guide!

Elisa was very knowledgeable, and also very prompt in helping us decide on and make arrangements for the two tours (Louvre and Montmartre) that we booked with her. She gave us easy to find meeting points, and was always on time. She also has a great sense of humor, which made the tours even more fun.

I won’t hesitate to book additional tours with Elisa on future trips to Paris.

Best Paris Tour Guide ever...Elisa Jehanno!

Elisa took us on a whirlwind tour of the Paris highlights on May 10, 2019. She was a very knowledgeable guide, well-spoken, articulate, with a good sense of humor! She is also very well-connected at many of the points of interest she took us to...especially in The Louvre. We have recommended her highly to friends and family. Her tours will not disappoint you in the least! Should we return to Paris in the near future, we would definitely book another tour with her.

Louvre Museum and Versailles Palace and Gardens

Praise for Elisa

If you are looking for a guided tour in Paris I highly recommend Elisa. She is a real professional and will cater to your group and agenda easily. She is punctual. We did not have the benefit of making early arrangements with Elisa but she worked with us to make the most of our visit(s). I have not visited the museums in Paris for several years and things have changed. You must book your tickets online and well in advance. The Louvre was closed to people who did not have advance, online tickets. We met a couple who arrived days earlier and still had not been able to buy tickets to the museum on site. Thankfully, Elisa had taken care of us and we breezed through the gate and security.

At Versailles we had a limited amount of time but more than enough for us to have a great experience. Elisa arranged for us to be there just at the right time to see the fountains running. I have been to Versailles a few times before but never saw the fountains working. It was special.

Excellent, knowledgeable guide

We agree with the many other reviews that find Elisa's abilities as a guide to be excellent. Her tour was informative, fun and interesting. One of our group had suffered an injury and could not walk far. We were grateful and delighted that Elisa was able to find a driver on very short notice so that this member could participate. She is knowledgeable about history and art, was very good at managing to get us through crowds and, as stated above very adaptable to our needs. We would recommend her without reservation.

We were lucky enough to have Elisa of Elisa Jehanno Tour Guide skillfully and knowledgeably guide through these two wonderful museums. She focused on what we wanted to experience and provided a solid history laced with charming anecdotes. She also knew how to skirt us around the crowds, thus avoiding the crush! We spent two hours at each museum and came away with a more in depth understanding of the paintings and sculptures we have known about for years!

Orsay Museum, Ile de la Cité, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Louvre Museum

Excellent Guide

My wife and I spent a part of two days with Elisa during our short visit to Paris this past holiday season. If you are visiting a place for the first time, I highly recommend investing in the services of a professional tour guide like Elisa. Doing so takes away a great deal of the stress that some might feel when visiting a new city, particularly if you are on a tight schedule!

For our visit, Elisa proposed itineraries for each day that struck a good balance between "see all that we can" and "have enough energy to enjoy the end of the day". She showed up with skip-the-line tickets. She knew the right places to meet. She brought with her an iPad loaded with supplemental material. For the noisy Louvre Museum, she provided us with personal headsets so that we could hear her explanations as we moved through the crowds.

She is very educated on the history of Paris and she knows the highlights of the Louvre, the Orsay Museum, and Notre Dame Cathedral very well. We came to know of Elisa through word-of-mouth. The person that referred us to Elisa was equally pleased with Elisa's services and has referred multiple people to her.Thank you Elisa!

Enthralling visit at the Louvre

Very interesting visit, perfectly within the topic. I was coming with 15 American undergrad students (within affective neuroscience class) to discover how emotions were depicted across time and art.

Versailles Palace, Gardens and Trianon

Phenomenal Guide; Knowledgeable; Flexible; Easy to Work With

We booked Elisa for a 5 hour private tour of the Versailles Palace (including the gardens and Trianons, etc.) and had an unbelievable time. We wanted to keep the group small (just me, my wife and mom) because of my wife's pregnancy and mom's advanced age - and it was the best decision we could've made.

Elisa made the history come to life with her great anecdotes and historical knowledge. She was very easy to talk to and has a wonderful personality that made the long day extremely fun. Though we were all tired after walking thousands of steps, Elisa remained upbeat the entire time and helped make Versailles the favorite part of our trip to Paris. The other guides that I've used in Paris cannot compare and we'll definitely make sure to try and book her for other Paris trips in the future!
