“Oxana took us on two tours. The Louvre and Versailles. There are two reasons her tours are beneficial. First, she knows the lay of the land. She knows where to go and how to get there. Second, Oxana knows her stuff. She can explain the basics and details and then can answer all the questions you have on the tours. Having a private guide adds so much to the time and money you spend to get to these amazing places and Oxana is a top-notch guide. When we return to Paris we will look forward to seeing her again. I can't recommend her enough.”

“We had an excellent tour of Versailles with Oxana. From start to finish, our tour was well organized, well informed and very accommodating. We found Oxana to be extremely knowledgable, friendly and we most appreciated that she made the tour very interesting for our children who ranged in ages 9-14. Oxana navigated us through the immense crowd quite seamlessly and she was able to distill centuries of historical facts into several key themes that we were all able to learn and remember from this beautiful and historically rich tourist sight.”
