David is an outstanding tour guide. We wish we could have spent even more time in Paris with him. He shared his knowledge and love of the city with us, geared the tour towards our interests, and was a pleasure with whom to spend the day. Highly recommend!!

David was a wealth of knowledge and very personable. He met us right on time, we started hiking through the city with-in minutes of meeting and didn't stop until our feet were aching. He shared areas we would have surely missed, if we were touring independently. We highly recommend David for a day of getting to know Paris and its history. You helped to make our stay memorable, thank-you!

Tour: #110396, Authentic Sacred Heart and Montmartre... private walking tour, Paris, Île-de-France, France    view tour
Date: Oct 22/19

We learned so much about Paris history and actually traveled the Metro. Could not have done that the first time without expert help. David was so patient and went at our pace and interest levels. He explained things so clearly and we came away from the tour thrilled for having done it . A lot of walking, stairs and hills but so worth it to see Montmartre and the city from a different point of view. David is such a nice person and so easy going. Thanks David for a great tour! Merci beaucoup.

David gave us (me, my wife and two 12 year old granddaughters) a wonderful introduction to Paris. He used his wide knowledge to extract both main points and curios, and kept all four of us interested from start to finish. He skillfully activated the girls and showed a high degree of sensitivity to their needs. We have another trip coming up in a couple of years and hope that David will be available then too.

David was exceptional! He seamlessly navigated us down the Champs-Elysees, through Montmartre, Le Marais and the Latin Quarter and the area around our hotel in Place Vendome. He even provided a quick glimpse into the Louvre. It was unbelievable how much he packed into one day in both sights and history. We would not hesitate recommending David to any of our friends! Merci David!

Hi David, on behalf of my family and I, thank you so much for a wonderful tour!!! You are a gentleman and a great teacher who should be honoured for your magical skills! The tour was amazing and purely driven by your love for Paris. If life permits, we will be back. Thank you for the honour of meeting you and giving us a beautiful insight into your city and culture. As for the macarons, well, what can I say...if the world had macarons on every corner, there would be no wars, just smiles!!!

David is a wonderful guide. Unlike other guides we have had he showed us the real day to day life (as well as all the Historic's!) but helped us navigate and fed us local specialities. It was not only an informative day but a fun day. My two sons absolutely adored him and enjoyed learning about so many places in and around Paris. A great day for the entire family thanks to David and his attention to us. He even walked us all the way home as he probably knew we would get lost without him! Great guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. I really really appreciate this particular feedback, as I felt I wasn’t able to deliver the quality of tours I usually offer, due to all this madness, yellow vests, police presence and blocked streets. Thank you for being so understanding. It was a hard day and your words sincerely touch me.

We were a little disappointed with this guide. This is the third tours by locals we have used in the last two weeks and I found it alot of hard work from myself and my parents to engage with David. The positives: David was really engaging leading up to the tour and adaptive as we needed to cater for my parents mobility issues. David also had a lot of knowledge of the area we were visiting. Apart from that, he does not have an outgoing personality and we had to ask a lot of questions to engage with David.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I am sorry we had to be stuck in traffic for so long. Driving in Paris is not ideal. It’s hard to talk turning around and in a very noisy environment. I tried to give you the info on each of the places we drove through (Opera, Madeleine, Concorde, National Assembly, Saint Germain, Luxembourg...). There is only so much to say. Most of what the taxi driver said I repeated to you, which concerned the reason for the traffic jam, which was useful information.

David was a friendly as well as informative guide. Historical facts were mixed in with local culture and trivia. He knew the sights to see, what could be skipped, and where to get good pastries. What more could you want?

We had David for an 8-hour private Paris tour and we could not have been more pleased with our experience. Having lived in Paris for a long time and having grown up in France, David is extremely knowledgable about French history and the sights in the city. He was punctual and gave a very detailed, educational tour of the city. He tailors the tour to what you have already seen and would like to see and really helps you see the city as the locals do. HIGHLY recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!

My second tour with David and another masterpiece. His knowledge of Paris is fantastic and he adds details that you won't find in guidebooks. A great afternoon on the Left Bank. We lunched at an old favorite of Jacqui Kennedy. Next trip to Paris will be another David request for sure!

Spectacular in every way! David is a phenomenal asset to Tours by Locals. We could not have had a better guide. Excellent communications in advance and during our tour;he took special care to answer our questions along the way and provided us insight into the history of what we were seeing. He ensured we got to experience some special sites and that allowed us to go back and explore later more on our own later. He can take you to the major sites or tour you through local neighborhoods. THANK YOU!

David was right on time and was able to guide us at our active pace around Paris. He took us to all of the major sites we suggested, avoided the crowds and took us to places tourists don't necessarily know about. We walked about eight miles, wear comfortable walking shoes and be able to walk uphill and navigate steps, up and down. He is very careful to check you level of ability and will adjust to what you need. Be fit and active to get the most from his tour. Highly recommended.

David was delightful, he gave my family so many insights into Paris history and we toured locations we did not even know about. He did a terrific job navigating crowds and optimizing routes so that we got to see a lot in one day. All the while bringing us to the best food spots.

Visited the Marais and Montmartre neighborhoods and loved the diversity. David was very knowledgeable about the history and culture. He customized our tour based on the groups interest and figured out the logistics for the afternoon. Enjoyed the Marais neighborhood the best and would like to go back again. Private tours are

To put it simply, David is exceptional in every way. He was organized, knowledgeable, accommodating, and took great pride in showing us Paris from top to bottom. He even made our daughter's birthday in Paris so very special. David goes out of the way to make sure his clients have a wonderful time touring the city. He is obviously the 'go-to' guide in Paris. Our family of 5 highly recommends him - you will not be disappointed! Thank you David for 2 unforgettable days in Paris!

David was a wonderful guide. He was understanding of our unrealistic time frame. I highly recommend his service. We were changing trains and wanted our young teens to experience a sample of the city. It's so full of history that seven hours can't do it justice, but David did an awesome job hitting all the top spots. He speaks fluent English, was patient and engaging with our kids, and was always aware of our safety and belongings! Plus he guided us to the best croissants and macaroons we've ever tasted!
