Version: ParisAppTours: Beware Mme la Guillotine, A Revolutionary Tour of Paris 188.8.131.523
Beware Madame La Guillotine really makes the streets of Paris come to life in a way I've never appreciated. My 14-year-old daughter loved being able to incorporate our Iphone into trip and she wasn't even aware she was learning because the story was so compelling and fun and interactive. Was easy to use and excellent sound quality. In fact, the story and history are so compelling it's probably a great app even if you're not in Paris.
The only thing I can think of is that it's still so new, there is only one tour released.
This one is a no-brainer. Bottom line: a full-day guided walking tour in Paris will cost you minimum $300 -- and up to $500 (depending on exchange rate). This one is a few bucks and offers something for everyone no matter your age or knowledge level.
