What a day with Black Paris Tours. So much rich history and an amazing delivery from Ms. Nawo Carole. Yes, the information is about black people but the history is essential for all people. It is with honor to be witness to the accomplishments of our American people, some late in recognition, some not yet recognized, sadly some forgotten until... More

My Husband and I attended the half-day tour with Miguel. It was absolutely overwhelming (in the best way possible!) - Miguel is knowledgable and very easy to talk to. He was extremely patient with our group - whom ranged from all ages and fitness level. As an African-American, I left this tour feeling enlightened about the history and contributions of... More

Four friends and I spent the day with Miguel Guerra of Black Paris Tours, and I wanted to let you know how much everyone enjoyed it. His knowledge was impressive, and his delivery even more so. One of the guests commented that Miguel made it so enjoyable because it didn’t sound memorized. Miguel isn’t just a tour guide with an... More

Ms. Stevenson's staff was GREAT...attentive, open to inquiries, knowledgeable, flexible, and punctual. The welcome package provided good information on navigating the city for first time visitors. I would highly recommend this tour company. You will not regret the experience. My time in Paris was limited unfortunately, but this tour made the trip a treasure.

This tour is wonderful, Miguel was our guide and the day went so quickly, I was sad when it ended. He was knowledgeable, fun, engaging and made sure we got a a great lesson in black history. This was the highlight of my solo adventure in Paris, made me proud to be a black man.

I highly recommend this tour. Nawo was our tour guide. She was very knowledge and a joy to be around. A lot of information was shared in a very engaging manner. We learned a lot. We ate very well at an African restaurant.

I highly recommend this tour. Nawo, our guide was lovely and so knowledgeable. I gained a whole new perspective on Afro-Parisian history. Also, I am glad I included the trip to Little Africa. That Senegalese meal was one of my favorites in Paris.
