M. Saint James (USA) :
« I had a great time with Mr. Laporte discovering the places and artifacts of the Commune. He was professional and charming and kept me engaged with history the whole time. I especially enjoyed sharing lunch and talking of cultural differences and the effects of historical perspective.
Thanks for making this experience so easy. »
