First time Paris visitor and photographer needs help with good tour company

Jump to last reply

I want to spend 8 or12 days in Paris and I would like to know which are the best tour companies. I travel solo hopefully will find an interesting group on the tour like Elderhostel. My main problem is the quality of the tour guide, lodgings and food. I have tried to find quality tours that I can afford on the internet but you never know who is making the recommendation! Elderhostel is excellent but I need to find a few others. Globus, Tauck visit too many places in too short a time. It is always convenient when the tour company can book your airfare also.

The lodgings need only be comfortable-not fancy and close to some of the sights of Paris. I hate crowds, especially of american tourists but I guess early september will leave me no choice. Another question: do people in Paris feel intimidated if you take
their picture? I like street photography but I don't want to offend.

Thank you for responding.
