Elena was awesome! She helped to show me new modes of composition and technique. She was knowledgable of the history, able to answer any question I had and really gave an enjoyable walking tour. If I could give her a 6 star rating, I would!

Hello Michael, Thank you for sharing you experience with Better Travel Photos. I am visiting Paris next week for work and have a couple of days off. I only have time to do one of the tours (a day tour or a night tour) .. I am leaning towards the night tour, but was was wondering what's your opinion on night vs. day tour? It is supposed to be cloudy all of next week, not sure if that matters? Thank you for the help.
