What people are saying:

Joleen is an excellent tour guide in every sense— she has extensive historical knowledge of her subject, a passion for sharing it, an engaging, warm personality, and relationships with the places where she takes her clients. The result is a personal experience that feels more like an enriching experience with a friend than a tour.


If I could give Joleen’s Marie Antoinette’s shopping tour 10 stars I would!! You’re in for a treat when you book with her, such a fun day and I learned so much.


“It is true I am rather taken up with dress; but as to feathers, everyone wears them and it would seem extraordinary if I did not.”
