We had a wonderful day with Cuneyt in Paris. Our tour was during the transportation strike so we walked quite a bit but we also got to see more of Paris than we would have taking the Metro. Cuneyt was kind to offer us help with other transportation needs while we were there. We thoroughly enjoyed our day seeing the sites and learning about life in Paris. Highly recommend Cuneyt for your tour needs in wonderful Paris!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you ! But I must learn more the ways at the cemetery :-) But anyway we enjoyed.... Hope to see you again in Paris without strike...

I heard about Tours by Locals from a friend that has used this in other cities and the recommendation was spot on! My family of booked a 4 hour walking tour of Paris the day of our arrival in Paris and Cuneyt did an excellent job providing an overview of the city! We hit most all of the top sites! He also provided great insights and direction on how to navigate around the city (metro/bus/taxi/Uber). His knowledge of the literary history of Paris was incredible.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind comments. I hope to receive you again in Paris or anywhere in France ...

510 characters are not enough to express our appreciation for our guide, Cuneyt A! We had just arrived in Paris after an 11-hour red-eye flight and jumped right into our tour. We had written and texted with Cuneyt before our arrival to express what we wanted to see and experience while in Paris. Cuneyt taught us how to navigate the city, order food and drinks in cafes, how to tip and more! We traveled by bus and walked infamous neighborhoods and monuments. Cuneyt helped us to fall in love with Paris!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I just want to tell you one thing : I also have good friends now ! Thank you being with us as Toursbylocals and myself...

A wonderful day! It was our first time in Paris and he taught us how to use the metro which was vital to the rest of our stay. I sent our planned itinerary to Cüneyt early on and he customized our tour with him based on that. We toured Montmartre area and had a private tour of a perfume museum. We were traveling with an older couple who wore out before our tour was over and Cuneyt offered to finish the remainder of our tour on a different day which worked well. Thank you Cüneyt for sharing your Paris!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice comments and 5 star... It was enjoyable seeing with you guys, I hope that you were not lost each other again at the metro :-) You are now Parisien! Hope to receive you again in France...
Frank MunseyUnited States
Excellent English and practical knowledge of Paris. Cuneyt was very flexible with our needs and time frame. This tour was very interesting and helpful for our group of 4. He also took and sent us many pictures of our group at Paris sites. We also modified what we did on following days based on his knowledgeable recommendations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice comment and hope to receive you again somewhere in France...
Ed ParkesUnited States
Cüneyt was a wonderful guide, and I would give him ten stars, not just five. Our time with Cüneyt was great fun and very educational.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind compliments. It was so nice to be with you... All my memories from Portland Oregon came back, it was so good... Hope to receive you again here in France...
Samantha BrysonUnited States
So sorry this review is so late! We did a Montmartre tour with Cuneyt in September and we highly recommend it! It felt like an old friend was showing us around the neighborhood while still hitting all of the highlights! He also took us to get amazing macarons, which was on our must-do list. Thanks, Cuneyt!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Never late :-) Thank you for your nice words, you always welcome to Paris, you have a friend here...
Robin WalkerUnited States
Our final tour of the visit to Paris. I can't rate Cuneyt highly enough. Our group of 8 experienced Paris in a way that we all walked away loving the city. Cuneyt was flexible, changing the tours based upon our requests and was a pleasure to be with, recounting stories and anecdotes. To top it all, once he found out one of our group was a young artist, he altered tours to show us architecture and street art. A jewel of a tour guide who will give you a magical feel for Paris!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Walker's and friend... Now I have good friends in USA & UK ! I am happy to make you in love with Paris.. Hope to receive you again some where in France... Enjoy you trip back home...
Robin WalkerUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice stars...
Robin WalkerUnited States
Cuneyt is a jewel of a guide. We had a group of 8 including 4 children aged 11 - 15, and he kept us all happy and interested for a full 8 hours. Knowledgeable and flexibly changing the tour on the fly to include what we wanted. Just a wonderful guide. If you want a great guide to immerse you in Paris culture, Cuneyt is the consummate guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Than you. You guys are so nice. Hope you will continiu to enjoy my Service tomorrow

Matt GileUnited States
It was a lovely day, a lovely tour, and Cunyet was a fantastic guide! The highlight for me was when he took us to the literary cafes, he knew where all the famous artists sat and even showed us the cafe he wrote his books at! He gave some excellent recommendations: the perfect location to watch the Bastille Day fireworks from, and an amazing restaurant that had a classic Parisian feel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi... I was so happy to be your guide during your honeymoon. Thank you for choosing Toursbylocals and my tour... I wish you a happy life together and lots of books....
Drew CarterUnited States
Our tour with Cuneyt was disappointing. It was not worth the cost and wasted precious holiday time. He was unable to provide us with any interesting information on Paris. His comment was "At 65 years old, I don't want to learn anything new, such as architecture". We did not expect him to be an architect. We did think he might have some information about the general architecture of the area. He pointed out a church, saying it was the newest in the city. When asked when it was built, he shrugged.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments. I am sorry that you had a wrong guide. My age and my knowledge limits are written on my page. All the best.
David E.United States
Cüneyt was an excellent source of everything to do in Paris including the Metro, restaurants and suggested places to see. Very happy that we chose him to help us. Don't hesitate to ask him for a tour of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David, you are very kind Hope to see you again in France
Frank PawlickiUnited States
This was a great tour of the city and its hidden treasures steering clear of the more popular sites and finding those hidden places we did not know we wanted to visit. He truly made us feel a part of the city and the day to day life that was taking place all around us particularly as we sat in the cafes having coffee or sharing lunch. The guide helped us organize the future days spent in the city to assure we experienced all that Paris had to offer from places to visit to where to eat and what to order.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice comments. Hope to receive you again in Paris or any other nearby city.
Not bad not good. We had similar tours around Europe for 150 maximum 200 euros. This time we paid 500 which I think is way too much for a walk only. Guide was funny but smoking while making tour seems inappropriate for me, maybe for french is ok. Also he need to know geography more, one advice for the future - Baltic countries are not Russia
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. * I asked you what to see in Paris before we started and you mentioned that no public transport only walking, therefore we walked All the best
Sarah SchmittUnited States
Cuneyt waited for us for over an hour at our hotel. When we finally arrived, we worked out what we wanted to see. As this was our first trip to Paris, he took us to the Eiffel Tower, taught us to use the Metro, and gave lots of advice about what we should do in the next few days. We had flown in on a red-eye, so we were tired way more quickly than he was! We learned a lot and it has made our trip more enjoyable. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you
Joel S.United States
Cuneyt was simply amazing, opening our eyes to a whole world, history, and culture we previously paid little attention to or respected. Now, wherever we are, we understand that the walls speak. We come to France every year, and this time decided to do something very different; this was the tour, Cuneyt was the perfect guy. Try it, you'll like it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much your flattering comments.. I also enjoyed very much seeing together with you. All the best
Naima SommersUnited States
Amazing guide. We had a fantastic time walking all over Paris. He was extremely accommodating and very knowledgeable. We would love to see him again one day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. Hope to receive you again in Paris
Andy YangUnited States
Cuneyt is wonderful. I had the Paris for Beginners tour on Sept. 15, 2018. While walking together, Cuneyt tell me a lot of history, culture and how the Parisian live in this most romantic City in the world. I travel solo but I feel like I was walking with a local friend. I highly recommend this tour for people who are visiting Paris with only one or two days. In the end of this tour, Paris is no longer a new place to me.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great to hear this Andy. It was wonderful for me being with a friend from China, my old place. Hope to receive you again in Paris.
Albert GarridoUnited States
Cuneyt is an extraordinary guide with a perfect English domain. We had enjoying the tour and the company. One more time using ToursByLocals has been the right thing to do. My wife and I are enchanted with the service and the reliability of the guides.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. I also enjoyed very much being with you. And congratulations for your 50th years of marriage... All the best
Susan JacksonUnited States
Cuneyt was remarkable! We certainly walked a ton but the education and sights of Paris were amazing! We got to see and learn much about the current culture as well as history of Paris through visitation of both landmarks and quaint sidestreet discussions. Outstanding tour by Cuneyt and can't wait to come back!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. Hope to rcv you again in Paris.
Maria LasdayUnited States
Although Cuneyt was pleasant and punctual, we didn't get much out of the tour. We didn't feel that he understood Jewish history in France.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. I was trying my best but this was the only what Paris provides... You have been at 2 memorials and Rue Rosier. Synagogs are closed. You also knew that I am not a licensed guide, therefore I am surprised but really sorry that you were not satisfied. All the best
Gary FortUnited States
Cuneyt was extremely well prepared and a joy to enjoy the sights of Paris with. I own Le Gourmet Connection and needed to understand the Paris food scene to search for new products to add to my business. He had researched the markets prior to my arrival and had specific recommendations as we toured. His general knowledge of Paris and it's history coupled with his knowledge of food and related products was extraordinary. When I return to Paris, I will certainly ask for Cuneyt as my guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Fort. It was very much enjoyable to tour with you. Even it was August & Sunday we managed :-) Thank you for your visit and hope to rcv you again in Paris. All the best

Kayla HowardUnited States
It really was such a day in Paris, both me and my sister were beyond tired from our flight the day before, but that didn't stop it from being a great day in Paris. We were shown a lot of things that we never would have found on our own, and became somewhat familiar with our surroundings so that using the metro alone became no problem the following day. We are glad we took this tour, and if we highly recommend it to anyone debating taking it! It was fun and we would totally do it again given the chance!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice comments. I am happy to see you girls are becoming parisiens. Enjoy the rest of the holiday.
Mark GoetzUnited States
Cuneyt was very generous and flexible. He was prepared to give us a tour of "His Paris" but adapted to our needs for a "Paris Highlights" based on our conversation. He really knows Paris and gave us a day that will never be forgotten.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind comments. I was going to show you more but the time was limited with you. Hope to rcv you again in Paris.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the stars.. I enjoyed very much being with your parents... They are lovely people..
Christopher ClappUnited States
This was the best possible tour for us. My 16 year old daughter's first time to Paris and a dad who had not been to city in 30 years. Our guide tailored our day to us, perfectly blending well known must see sites from the best vantage points with some cool off the beaten path Paris one of a kind experiences. Cuneyt made sure we experienced the full range of food from Parisian breakfast, drinks at famous cafe, a lite lunch, ice cream, and an an amazing dinner at the Bisto D'Henri. Best 12.5 km walked ever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you family Clapp it was nice to know you and it was great to make Martha happy during her first trip to Paris. She now knows what to ask her future boyfriend to be with him :-) Place Furstenberg ! Enjoy the rest of your trip.
