    I’ve resisted commenting for the past few weeks, hoping this series would improve, but I don’t think you need to include the tagline “Guidebooks will only take you so far – it’s word of mouth that really goes the distance.” when all the tips so far are in all the guidebooks! I look to this site for an insider’s unique perspective on Paris and France, and I’m not finding that at all here, sorry.
