Trying to reach Michael Osman is ridiculous. Any other recommendations?

Jump to last reply

I realize Michael Osman gets rave reviews from those who are lucky enough to hear back from him, but seriously, this is absurd. I have been trying to reach him via his aol address for 2 months - nothing. Then, under advice here, I sent him a FB message - Nothing.

I have read that he's not easy to get a hold of, but it's simple common courtesy to respond to an email, as opposed to just ignoring a potential customer. Perhaps he enjoys this "hard to reach" reputation and thinks it makes him more desirable. I have no idea. I do know that from my point of view, it's rather rude.

He obviously has time to post photos and comments on Twitter multiple times a day (, and Instagram ( yet refuses to answer emails. A simple, "I'm busy at the moment, but will get back to you within the week to discuss your private tour" would be both professional and considerate.

We'll have maps in hand, and will enjoy exploring Paris on our own, but would really like to employ a guide on one of the days we are there. Any other guides you can recommend?
