Nic was a friendly and knowledgeable guide and very familiar with the busy St Germain and Latin Quarter areas. It was nice to stop for a drink at a hotel where jazz musicians used to stay. The walk was easy and the Chez Papa jazz restaurant where we ended up for dinner was fantastic - first rate food, friendly staff and excellent musicians. Jazz lovers - don't miss this tour!" reviewed by Brenda – Manoora, Australia
