Guide with car in Paris

Any recommendations for an English speaking guide with a car for 3 days in Paris?

At first I was surprised that there have been no answers to this (it's been less than twelve hours) - - but the reason is that it might not be clear what you want from this guide. Do you have three days in Paris? or more? Paris can and should be enjoyed on foot and on the metro, with the occasional use of very affordable and pleasant taxis when you feel like it.

I hope you get answers. But single- or half-day guided experiences with a driver and car - - to equal one-third or less of your total time in Paris might be a more appropriate plan.

On the other hand, if you have certain specific needs (mobility impairment, or a long list of highly specialized targets you need to "hit" - - like specific business appointments, dressmakers, whatever), such a resource might be very important to you.

Best wishes,

Rex

Our group of nine booked a minibus with driver and guide for a private 3-hour city tour through cometoparis.com. We also used them for airport transfer. They were prompt, friendly, and our guide was knowledgeable and charming. I would recommend this company based on our experience of a few weeks ago.

I think the company is called Come to Paris. I suppose they are agents who make arrangements with other limousine services, etc., but they are the ones I dealt with and paid for the services we used.

Thanks for the information. I decided to hire a guide for the three days that my family will be in Paris. An American artist, Michael Osman, has a website called Discover Paris. He responde to my query within 12 hours, his price is reasonable and he will meet us at our hotel and help us navigate the city as well as guiding us through several museums and places of interest. Will post a comment after I return from Paris in August.
