Editorial Reviews

In this second look at the city of light, love and culture Globe Trekkers Adela Ucar and Justine Shapiro spend a week enjoying the museums, romance, food and entertainment of Paris. With two very different perspectives on the city, Paris City Guide 2 shows the range of experience a trip to Paris can offer. Adela s adventure begins with a motorcycle taxi to her hotel in Montmartre and a stroll around the art filled neighborhood. Justine s begins with a visit to the Luxembourg Gardens and a ride on the best local/sightseeing bus in the world. The next day Adela visits the Musee D Orsay to learn about the paintings of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, while Justine finds some art of her own in a local street performance. As no visit to Paris would be complete without a little shopping, Adela visits one of the city s most unique stores, Deyrolle, famous for its one of a kind taxidermy and Justine visits a street market in the African quarter with equally exotic goods on offer. As for fashion, Adela is lucky enough to visit with renowned British designer Vivenne Westwood backstage during Paris Fashion Week. The last part of her trip is dedicated to another famous fashionista, Marie Antoinette. First, she visits the stunning Palace of Versailles taking in Le Petit Hameau, the queen s peasant village and then with a guide she revisits Marie Antoinette s journey to the guillotine, from La Conciergerie to the Place de la Concorde. With the week drawing to an end, both Justine and Adela have one thing they just have to see before going home. For Adela it is the iconic Eiffel Tower and for Justine it is the Mona Lisa. Along the way... Take a ride to Versailles in a Citroen 2CV. Visit Paris oldest English language bookstore, Shakespeare and Company. Enjoy the Can Can at the world famous Moulin Rouge. Learn the art of French cooking at the renowned Ecole Cordon Bleu.

If you own the first Globetrekker about Paris then don't bother buying it - while they go to some different places in Paris and have another tour guide doing it - they mix in clips from the first Globetrekker Paris. If you don't have the first Globetrekker Paris - then buy this one instead - it covers more area and has lots of information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Informative December 7, 2008
I have been to Paris before and have seen 5 different DVDs and this is by far my favorite. It goes all over the city and gives a good overview of the places to visit. You'll still need a guide book but its a great dvd as an introduction to the city.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute waste of money. December 16, 2007
Several of my friends (who have been to Paris) have also seen this - it is so poorly produced, it's a complete waste of money. Between it and the sequel, most of the footage is the same. Why waste our time in a cookery class? Guide is uninformative, spends her time arguing with a cab driver and partying with guests and hotel rep rather than showing us, um, er, PARIS. If there was a 0, I would have awarded it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could've been better November 11, 2012

Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world. I originally purchased the 2004 Globe Trekker Paris DVD with Justine Shapiro. However, Justine's surly attitude ruined what should've been a majestic tour of the City of Lights. I was so disgusted that I literally threw it away.

I purchased this DVD. I figured that even if Justine started acting crazy, Adela would cancel her out. This DVD was rated G, meaning we were spared Justine's vulgar vernacular. In fact, a penis on a statue at the Louvre was blurred. This DVD began on Eurostar, which travels between London (check out Globe Trekker's Ultimate London DVD. It is the best episode of Globe Trekker) and Paris. The trip cost $100, which is much less expensive than Acela from NY to DC (London and Paris are roughly the same distance apart as NY and DC).

Many people have complained about Adela's accent, but I think it's sexy. However, a pet peeve I have is that they spoke in French quite a few times, but they didn't bother to translate it. Other reviewers have correctly pointed out that Justine's segments were recycled from the 1st Paris DVD, including her infamous argument with the taxi driver. Justine also rides the Paris Metro, which is a beautiful subway system. Musicians even play the violin in the Metro.

They stopped by Luxembourg Palace, which has a nice park. Adela then got a museum pass and went to this art museum (not the Louvre). The second half of the DVD was mostly filler crap. For example, Adela went to a store that sells stuffed animals. Justine went to a French cooking class (there are a myriad of French cooking classes in NYC). If they were going to waste time at a French cooking class, at least give the viewers a recipe. Adela even went to a fashion show.
