A Truly Engaging Experience

By: Anna

Reviewed on: 26 Mar 2018

Family Twist provided several kid-friendly tours on our trip to Paris and London. The guides were knowledgeable and related easily to our children. We were all thoroughly engaged because of the professional and friendly guides. The little gifts for the children were a sweet perk.

Family Twist Review

By: Rajiv

Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2018

Our experience with Family Twist was wonderful. Our main interaction was with two of their employees, Susanna and Camille. They were prompt, courteous and extremely helpful. One our most recent trip to Paris, Family Twist engaged two guides for us. Each of them was perfect in their own way. For the historic part of the itinerary, we had Katia. She was very knowledgeable and was able to engage a 9 year old for long periods of time. She has great games for my child that entertained him and educated him at the same time. The other guide, Laurenie, is a chocolate expert who gave us a fantastic walking chocolate tour of Paris.

Tour of Tower of London

By: Andrea E

Reviewed on: 15 Oct 2018

Our tour guide was accommodating to a changing schedule with our three small children. She kept them engaged and taught them (and us) so many fun facts about the Tower of London, the history of the Kings and Queen relationship to the tower as well as fun details about the crown jewels. Plus she left the boys with really gorgeous and educational books about the Tower and the Animals it once housed.

Private tours with kids

By: paris2019

Reviewed on: 24 May 2019

We toured the Eiffel Tower and Versailles with our Family Twist guide, Katia. She was very knowledgeable and gave context and history to the places we visited. She also had some engaging activities for the kids while we toured, especially in Versailles. We would definitely use Family Twist again for private tours in other locations.

Drivers were consistently late and their command of the English language poor. Tour guides great but the company gave one of them the wrong time to meet us

Family Twist London and Paris

By: Tran

Reviewed on: 26 Jul 2019

Family Twist did a great job with all of the tours and kid's activity gifts in London, especially the Kensington Palace tour and our day at the London Eye and Thames River tour. In Paris, we loved the baguette and croissant baking class and the Impressionist art class. Both were fun activities for the kids and adults. The art teacher, Patricia Lasquier, was exceptional. The private boat ride down the Seine with our own singer was truly magical and the Louvre tour was especially fun for our 12 year old daughters. Our Family Twist guide had a problem finding our picnic location at Versailles and we subsequently missed our timed entrance into Versailles. Angela Musso at Valerie Wilson Travel did a fabulous job communicating our concerns with Family Twist and they did offer to reschedule a return trip to Versailles or a refund.

Mixed feelings

By: Travelfam

Reviewed on: 14 Jul 2019

Our Parisian tour guide Caroline was excellent and by far the highlight of our Family Twist experience. Our drivers were also very good. Our baking experience in Paris, tour in florence and certain aspects of London were underwhelming (tho the Tower of London tour was a plus). I would not book FT again outside of Paris. It was too expensive for sub par experiences.

We definitely recommend Family Twist for the above activities with young kiddos in Paris. They made the trip memorable and made navigating the Louvre with three young ones seamless in a sea of tourists.

Mixed experience with this operator. One tour guide was having an “off” day which adversely impacted a photography tour. The macaron baking and perfume making classes were outstanding.

Very friendly. Most importantly, as happens with all travel, there were bumps in the road, but their staff went out of their way to make sure that my family was well looked after. That is the sign of excellent service! Thank you.
