Veronica was great! We had very thorough tour of Versailles and surrounding areas. I did a lot of research before I came and I still learned a lot from her. We would highly recommend taking this tour from Veronica. Very professional and efficient guide. Thanks again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry but I was sure to have thank you. I must be tired !!!!! THANK SO MUCH for you comment, I feel so happy to see that there are people that are interested in what I say !!! I nearly feel intelligent ......; It was a real pleasure to meet you both, perhaps we shall meet again ? In Argentina ?
Angela TrustyUnited States
Excellent tour of Versailles and the gardens with Veronica. We learned a lot about Versailles and French history. Veronica is very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Thanks for the great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you, as I always say, everything depends on the person you have infront of you. If he is interested, and don't suffer of claustrophobia, as Versailles Palace can be very crowded, it can be very well appreciated. It agreeable to see people happy aroung you. Thanks so much for your company.
Constance SuchalaUnited States
Varonica was most accommodating by meeting us at our Paris address and leading us every step of the way. She is very knowledgeable of as well as passionate about Versailles history and culture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your mail. I'm very happy that you have appreciated the Tour. When the client is interested, things are easier to do !!!! It was a real pleasure to meet you.
William MertesUnited States
Veronica was THE WOMAN!!!! She got us where we needed to be, through the crowds, with amazing efficiency. Was great with my kids (11 and 9) and was able to explain things and show them things that would excite and interest them. Has a great deal of respect for the historical treasure we visited (Versailles) and demands that respect from all the visitors (even those not in our group :) Had a great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So happy that you have appreciated. It is always the same, to have a good visit depends on the client !!!! If he is interested and nice, everything is marvelous, is thanks to you all, that I was good.
Roman (Martha) NowygrodUnited States
Pleasant and quite knowledgeable and generous with her time however we had a difficult time communicating given the fact we speak no French and her English was modest
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so regret if you didn't understand my English, that it has been a difficult time for you. But I'm not English and I speak French and Spanish when I don't work, so sometimes I don't find. the right word.
Justin WaplesUnited States
Veronica is extremely knowledgeable and very talented at explaining complicated French history in an uncomplicated manner. Our family had a great day at Versailles with Veronica and we learned so much. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Nice to read you !!!! It was a pleasure to meet you and I'm very, very happy to see that the whole family had a great day. We were really lucky with the weather and the small crowd ..... Hope to see you again one day, here or in Argentina ????
Marcus Di LorenzoUnited States
her Spanish was perfect. Gave us an excellent overall over of the museum and recommended how to see the all of the works of heart and relics from the Creek, ejection, and no made. That are stored within this extremely large museum that were present throughout this extremely large museum. with definitely book another 2 were with this very friendly and knowledgeable guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, thanks so much for your comment, but I have no merit to speak well Spanish as I'm Argentinian, for the rest, it is really my work !!! thanks again
Joshua LewisUnited States
We had a great time in Paris! Veronica was extremely knowledgeable about art and history. She was able to show us the famous sites, but also many things that the normal tourist would not see. Even with bad weather and bad luck with some of the places closed we saw and learned more than we could imagine in 1 day. It was definitely worth it to have Veronica show us around Paris. Her insight at the Louvre was priceless, we learned some fascinating things about the art and artifacts on display.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you, as you were so interested to hear me .....A good visit depends 50% or more, of the person that I have in front of me. Thanks so much for your comment.
Carol DevereauxUnited States
Really enjoyed our long visit to Versailles. Visited all the sites, Veronica was generous with her knowledge and insights. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you so much for your comment and I'm very happy you have enjoyed the visit so much. Veronica
Jose BotelloUnited States
Very good guide.

Alfred B.United States
Veronica has a passion for art and we enjoyed having her as our guide to the Musée D'Orsay.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so happy that you have appreciated, even with all the changes that we find on our way !!!! I hope next time they won't be making new works. Thanks
Dot SnyderUnited States
I loved the tour...Veronica was fabulous...great tour I will definitely recommend to everyone/anyone. I should also mention that Veronica let us individualize our tour, and that made it even more enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so happy that you pass a very nice day. It is always good to see that people appreciate the Tour. And I really prefer to individualize the Tour, as not everybody have the same interests. Some people prefer art, other the atmosphere of the City, others History, that's why, for this sort of visit, I prefer to let the client chose what to visit and do, if this is possible. Thanks again
Glenn RockwoodUnited States
Absolutely worthwhile, wonderful, fun filled day with tons of history and colorful insight. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Thanks so much for your comment. And I'm very, very happy that at least, I made someone happy too. It is a pleasure to meet people like you. thanks Veronica
Angel SerbiaUnited States
Tour was ok, nothing I would do again. Veronica was ok
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias por su opinion.
Jeff NeichinUnited States
Very good tour. Extremely knowledge .. great teacher if you know little about art.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much to let me know that you enjoyed the Tour, it is always so agreeable to know that you made someone happy !!! It was a pleasure to meet you. Veronica
Carole SkinnerUnited States
Veronica was knowledgeable and I would recommend her and this type of tour to anyone with little knowledge of the art at the Musee d'Orsay. Her English was very good, she was punctual and pleasant. The tour lasted 2 hours and the paintings on her agenda were the only ones we spent time on, so I wished we had time and energy afterwards to go back and really contemplate the art that I have studied in my art books at home and longed to see. By that time the museum was very crowded.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, thanks so much for your comment, it was also a pleasure for me, I really appreciated the three hours I spend with you. Hope we shall meet again one day.

Patricia BennettUnited States
We learned so much! Best day ever at the Louvre! She helped us navigate the mammoth museum and experience the Works of art we had as priorities. She was amazing and taught us more in a 3 hour tour than an entire semester of art history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment. I really had a very interested group, that's why I tried to be "amazing" !!!!! I hope that you got in time to get into the Orangerie !!! If you would have told me before I should have shorten my visit !!! Have a nice stay and enjoy yourself Veronica
A Carol McKinneyUnited States
Great guide...very knowledgeable and interesting. My grandchildren said they learned a lot! Well worth the money...we skipped the long lines and got right in! I highly recommend Veronica!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so glad that you like the view, and NO CROWD !!!!!!! Have a very nice trip and thanks for you e-mail.
John AllenUnited States
Veronica was nice took her time to show us around I wish we had more time for the cost
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to meet you, and I found that, as everybody was interested in the visit.Thanks to you for your comment
Laura DeHoritySan Jose, CA, United States
Highly recommend this tour with Veronica. She truly knows her history and presents in a unique and informative way. She provided so much information about the working and middle class people who would have probably lived in and around Versailles and life around the village and the castle for those other than the nobility at that time. The day that we were there was crowded and she really knew how to help make the very most out of the experience and to move us quickly past the lines!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for you words, I don't remember to have spoke so much !!!! It was a very agreeable day for me too. Thanks again Veronica
Tim BrownUnited States
Veronica did an amazing job showing us around the Palace at Versailles and more importantly, the gardens. There is no way we would have seen some of the most beautiful sections of the gardens without her guidance. She is extremely knowledgeable and provided great insight.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment, I'm so happy that you like it. But the most important thing in a visit, is the interest of the client. If he is, the Tour becomes a good one. Thanks again and happy of meeting you.
Brian LavelleUnited States
Veronica did an excellent job for our tour of the Louvre. We enjoyed it very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you !!!!! it was very nice to meet you. Veronica
Arthur A.United States
Veronica provided us with an informative and engaging tour of the Louvre. We were concerned about touring such an immense museum on our own and wasting precious time. Veronica's breadth of knowledge was such that she was able to bring our attention to the Louvre's highlights and provide us with a more in depth background on the artist and the history. We would highly recommend Veronica. I doubt our lasting impression of the Louvre would have been the same without her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so happy that you had a nice visit. It is a really gift to have clients that are so interested in Arts, history, etc. Thanks so much for your comment Veronica
Leslie BlairUnited States
We saw some things off the beaten path that we wouldn't normally have seen, which was nice. i suggest if you are going to use this service that you be very specific up front about what it is you want to see, and what types of things you're interested in. It will make it easier for the guide to customize the tour to your interests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I though that you enjoyed your trip to Paris. It is my custom to ask a client, when we first meet, what it is they would like to do and visit while in Paris. I am surprised I did not do this on this occasion. I am sure I posed the question, and in this instance it was possibly misunderstood. My usual visit of Paris includes the more famous places of interest, but using public transport on a Four Hour Tour limits the areas that one is able to visit. I regret that you didn't enjoy it.
Kris ShaparUnited States
Good tour guide. She helps you understand a bit what it was like to be in the palace in the 17th and 18th century. She also is good at helping you understand what makes the style of the furnishings distinctive. I also liked how she personalized the tour by bringing out features she herself enjoys.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. I'm very happy when people are interested in the visit and appreciate it. I find that it is so important to make people feel how it was to live in those day !!!! not very agreeable even if you were rich !!! thanks again, Veronica
We had a great time with Veronica + experience the glamour of Versailles. Veronica was fabulous in coordinating our trip with the rail network down, we caught a taxi and another drive through Paris on our way out to Versailles. There was minimal waiting in line, although people everywhere. Veronicas knowledge of the Palace, paintings, architecture and lifestyle was thoroughly amazing. We learnt so much and loved being able to wander the gardens. Truly magnificent and Veronica made it even more enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your nice words !!!!! It was a really marvelous moment that we pass together, and this is thanks to you, and a bit part, thanks to me ....... I hope so !!!! I wish you a marvelous Year and hope to see you again, on day ?????
Judy BonfilioUnited States
Veronica was patient and the perfect teacher! We are older and a little slow--she found every elevator in the Louvre. She also gave us a tutorial on Metro use, and met us at our hotel. Incredibly knowledgeable on history and art, just fascinating!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your rating and words. It was a pleasure to work for you, very interested and pleasant to work for. Thanks again Veronica
Howard BravermanFt LAUDERDALE, FL, United States
A wonderful experience with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Veronica speaks perfect English and she brought to life the most important pieces of Art that you should see in the Louvre with the History of what went on during that time period. In addition, Veronica was most flexible in working with us on time changes for the tour. We were a group of 6 on a Viking Cruise which had to change locations to move further out from Paris due to French strikes on the Locks, and only one shuttle return back in PM.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment. I'm glad that you enjoyed the visit. And I love this job, most of all when people are interested in art, history and that they were happy to do this Tour. I hope that you were in that shuttle !!!! Thanks again Veronica

Lucie Anne I.Canada
Veronica is a very knowledgeable & enthusiastic guide. We truly enjoyed her commentary and her suggestions on continuing our visit at Versailles after our time with her was done. As we made our way out to Versailles, she also provided information about the areas we were driving through and answered our questions about other sites to visit in Paris. We would definitely contact her if we travel to Paris again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, thanks for your comment. I'm sorry if I was late, but with the taxi that I manage to find, happily we have been able to catch back the 10' I was l late and to get to Versailles on time. We have been lucky. ToursbyLocals have sent me a reminder some days before but I don't know what happened to me, I was so sure that I didn't work that day ...... age ?????? Perhaps ........ Regards Veronica
Veronica is one great tour guide. She knows her craft as a tour guide & she know the history of her tour topic. Being in Versailles with her was streamlined and stress free. She's a feisty person and takes great care of members of her tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good morning Thank you o much for your comment, I also wish you the best in your work and have a great time in the Low Countries.
Veronica was terrific. Very very detailed tour, patient and very good english. She even managed to procure us an extra ticket last minute from Versailles. Was a memorable experience. Thank you Veronica!!! Eric & Laura
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much at you for your comment. If the guide is good, this is most of all, thanks to the person that she have in front, if he is interested and agreeable to speak too. So thanks to you Veronica
Ana Daniela SiberioUnited States
Veronica is a lovely, kind, gentle person with an incredible knowledge of the history and culture not only of Versailles but of Paris as well. She made our tour extremely enjoyable and fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so happy to have received such a wonderful comment and that you enjoy the Tour. I hope to see you one day .......
Veronica was amazing. The museum is crazy busy and she took us to see the most popular works with great ease. Her knowledge was vast and brought many moments of enlightenment. Would recommend her for a tour. Can't imagine doing it by myself. Well worth the money.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for giving me your opinion, to make happy other people is the best we can do !!!!!
Veronica went out of her way to make sure we were all comfortable. She was very pleasant and informative.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so happy that you appreciated the visit. Thanks so much Veronica
Maryna TullyUnited States
We absolutely loved this tour with Veronica. Her passion for French history, her wonderful advice on things to do the rest of the trip, her stories will stay with us as best memory of Paris. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good night, Thanks so much, it is so agreeable to read such a nice opinion on ones work. But this also depends, on the persons that are really interested too, so on you !!!! Veronica
Veronica is an expert and a lady. She is the perfect guide if you are interested in art. She organized the tour exactly to our wishes. If you are a group of young people and you are not so much interested in art but in modern day Paris and a little more "fun" in the tour, you might look for another guide. Veronica is perfect for a classical tour. I would like to highlight her ambition and professionalism.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thanks for your mail, I'm very happy to have meet you. And as I always say, if I'm quite good as a guide, in a Tour, this is thanks to the persons I have in front of me. Thanks again and have a very good Year. Veronica
Charles MillerUnited States
Veronica was fantastic with the tour to Versailles- Thank You!- Maureen and Kathy
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, It is windfall to read, the moment that you wake up, such a nice words. Thanks so much and have a very nice time for Christmas and New Year, a bit early but then I shall forget to send you my best wishes.
Daniel RichterUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your starts !!!!!! I shall feel as the sky, with so many around myself !!!! If have been really happy to meet you, and I spend a very nice day in your company Thanks Veronica
Our guide, Veronica, had an extensive knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, French history. It made the whole Versailles site come alive for us. A definite 5 star tour! Thank you, Veronica!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you for given me the pleasure to meet you and to hear that you have appreciated so much Have a vey nice time and hope to see you again one day Veronica
Michael FromsonUnited States
We thought that Veronica tried hard but did not connect with my wife and me. Her English is poor. She never really asked us about what we wanted to see and would speak on random topics throughout the day. We see Tours by locals as a broker and don't think there can be good standards when you charge so much for a poor guide. In the future we will try to find our own guides directly. I apologize for such a critical review but we really feel that our tour was not very well run.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry that you were deceived by the Tour. But I did the Tour as I always do and there are few possibilities to change something. You looked happy with the Tour. If you look at the opinion about my visit of Versailles, you will see that most of the people appreciate it. About my English, nearly always, clients find that my English is very good as I'm not English and never lived in an English Country. English is my third language. Still yesterday, the clients found that I knew a lot.
Diann B.United States
Veronica was a wonderful guide!! My husband and I were amazed at the history that Veronica shared about Versailles and the gardens. It was a fantastic day .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, It have been a very, very nice day, for me too. When you have people that are very interested and agreeable to speak to, you give the most you can. I'm so please that you have appreciated the visit. Thanks and hope to see you again, one day, here or in Argentina ??? in some year more. .......
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thanks for your waiting. If you come back to Paris and want to visit Orsay, it will be a pleasure to be your guide Tnanks
The tour with Veronica was very enjoyable for various reasons. Firstly, the lady is very knowledgeable and presents this knowledge in a nice humorous way. Secondly, we found her very flexible with regard to timing and program, which suited us perfect because we arrived late to Paris the night before and to start st 10:30 was a blessing! And last but not least, she brought us to lunch in a fabulous place, the oldest Cafe in Paris, and, she booked the best table. All in all, highly recommendable!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for much for your comment. I also had a very enjoyable time with you, it is very agreeable to guide people that are really interested in what they are visiting. See you again one day ?????
Ronald NissenUnited States
We were on a cruise that visited at 8 different ports. Of these 8 ports we scheduled 7 tours with Tours By Locals. The tour we took with Veronica was by far the best of all the tours. Not to say the others were not great as they were. Veronica was very knowledgeable and a delight. We visited and saw so much of Versailles that we would not have seen or even known to see if we had not had Veronica. She was awesome as was the tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I don't know what happened, I was sure to have thanks you, but my message didn't pass !!!!! thanks so much for your comment and I'm so glad that you love the visit, it is so agreeable to see that someone is so happy to have follow the visit. I hope to meet you again, if in 5 years or more, you decide to visit Argentina, you can find my number phoning to any same last name in BA, they are all family !!! a huge one ...... Thanks again
Susan JandakUnited States
Knowledgeable, friendly,concerned for our group. Went above and beyond to make it a pleasure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment. I also had a very nice day, pity the mass that didn't permit us to see really well the construction and stain glasses at Notre-Dame. I hope that manage to do all what you expected and didn't get to tired.
Richard McAdamsUnited States
Veronica made this day special for my ten year old granddaughter (and me on my fifth visit). She is so knowledgeable, making Marie Antoinette and the 18th century come alive for both of us. We were met at our hotel, led to transportation to Versailles where we glided past the mobs of people in line there on a national holiday morning directly into the Palace. She even found time on our half-day tour to go through parts of the upper gardens, giving a child a chance to run (and dance!). A wonderful time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your words, so happy that everything was so smooth for you !!!! and I hope that you had a good weather. Today and Yesterday, it was Versailles under the water ....... not very nice but the clients were anyway, happy.
The tour was good, specially the second part, we think we missed some historic information, maybe Veronica doesn't have enough patient, also we feel uncomfortable many times when she told other tourist things they don't have to do inside Versailles, and we believe is not her responsibility to do that. She lost focus in the explanation because of that. We lost time listening discussions between Veronica and other tourist that really we don't care
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lo siento mucho de que no todo fue de su agrado, pero no tuve la impresión de que lo estaban pasando mal. Me gustaría saber cuales son the historic information, pues así, podría buscar y aprender sobre estas informaciones. Es que me preguntaron ? y yo no supe contestar ? no recuerdo. Tendré en cuenta su comentario, la próxima vez. Muchas gracias por su comment.
Tony JudgeUnited Kingdom
Very knowledgable guide and an enjoyable day
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. I also had an enjoyable day. I hope that the rest of your trip, will be the same, weather, people, champagne ...........
Harry H.United States
Veronica is fluent in English; we had no problem understanding her. She is very knowledgeable about Versailles, French history, and the history of the French kings. Her tour is by public transportation (the Metro, and then a train) which we found more interesting than just driving in a car. She met us at our hotel and accompanied us back to the Metro stop near our hotel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thanks for your comment. I hope that you weren't too tired. I also had a very nice day thanks to you.
Duayne KingUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. If you find the Tour, not so good, I'm sorry for it but why didn't tell me from the beginning what you expect from me ?.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to 5-Star tour experiences and we appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of the service we offer our customers. We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer why this tour experience appears to have fallen below our guides’ normal high standards.
Craig BrehenyLondon, United Kingdom
Fascinating tour. Wonderful guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's a pleasure to have new about you and most, when you let me know that you have appreciated so much Thanks and perhaps we shall meet one day in ??????? Regards
Robert WilliamsUnited States
Veronica was incredibly energetic and entertaining. She also really knows a great deal about Paris and has some wonderful stories to tell. She was very willing to adapt the tour to our specific needs and she went out of her way to be kind and caring. Veronica is a lovely person with a beautiful soul. We were so lucky to have her as our guide. It is a testament to her that although we only knew her a few hours we all left thinking of her as a friend for whom we have great respect & sincere affection.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your VERY, VERY, AND VERY nice words. Perhaps we shall meet again one day ? In Paris or Argentina, when I move again there ? you just ask to any Steverlynck in Argentina, my phone number or how to find my number, and you will get it. All of them are from the same family !!!! Too again, thank so much for your comment. Veronica
Christopher CallasUnited States
Veronica was an excellent guide for my wife and teen daughters at the Musee d'Orsay. She was very knowledgeable and helped us navigate the place more effectively. I would very much recommend her for this type of visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you for giving me your opinion, I hope that everybody will feel the same.
Mary SteeleUnited States
Veronica provided an excellent introductory tour of the Louvre. She moved us effortlessly though the exhibits. Her explanations were very informative and insightful. We learned how to view the exhibits through her eyes and through those of the artists. She provided background information as we moved through various eras. The pace was just right. She clearly has a passion for the Louvre as it stands. She did not overwhelm us - She provided us with a great morning.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment, I hope that my explanations will permit you to appreciate the marvelous pieces of art that we can find in all museums in the world. Hope to see you again one day.
Beth SatterfieldUnited States
My Granddaughter and I appreciated Veronica's knowledge of Versailles and getting us around in a comfortable manner. Would definitely use her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your comment helps me to find a good way to visit Versailles without making you walk so much. Thanks you so much.
Susan AmbroseUnited States
Veronica showed us as much as possible in Paris in one day - Arc de Triomphe, Eifel tower, Notre Dame, and so much more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Even this is not my name, I'm so happy that you had a nice day and hopping to see you again one day ?
Todd WittmanUnited States
We visited the Louvre with Veronica as our guide. The Lourve is extreamly large and crowed on the date we visited, but she made expert work of helping us navigate all the high points. She also helped us skip the lines which saved us at least an hour or more. She was very knowledgeable, and provided a lot of info and insight that we could have easily missed without her. I have a family of 6 and i would not hesitate to use her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So nice to hear of you, I hope that you got back in good health, that I didn't tired you to much !!!!! Thanks so much for your comment.
Todd WittmanUnited States
Veronica was great. She whisked the 6 of us us right past all the lines (saved us hours of wait time) and was very knowledgeable. She was very friendly, prompt and patient with our kids. She made sure we had a great view of all the sights inside the Chateau and expertly showed us around the gargantuan gardens area. After going, I cant imagine visiting there without her help ... in my opinion the value far exceeded the cost and i was very glad to have as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I'm so happy that you have appreciated the visit, it is so nice to have agreeable people to show them the French Treasures !!!! Thanks
Jeremy MishkinUnited States
Veronica was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and responsive to our questions and interests. She made our visit immeasurably more enjoyable, and provided a level of understanding and context that we could never have attained on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, are you back home ??? Here very warm ..... Thanks so much for your comment, I'm always happy when I see that clients are ALSO happy with the Tour, Veronica
Torin GrayUnited States
Veronica was very knowledgeable and friendly. She did a great job not only showing the development of Impressionism as a movement, but also many other factors that influenced the artists involved. I would very much recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. But if I was good, as you say, this is because I had in front of me, people that were really interested and and with a lot of charm. I hope that your Tour in Normandy will be spectacular and that you will find the oysters I spoke to you about.
Lucinda V FairfieldUnited States
Veronica was very informative and entertaining. She gave us interesting historical information without overwhelming us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was very nice to meet you and perhaps we shall meet, on day, in Paris a street ???? I hope that I didn't tired you too much. Thanks for you comment.
Darrell HowardUnited States
Veronica's commentary was informative and entertaining. She altered the tour to accommidate my needs and was a delight to be with. Funny, knowledgable, and polite. I'd tour with her any day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is very kind of you your comment, but as I always say, we guides depend on the interest of the client, so we depend a lot on the person that we are with. This was very nice of you and I hope to see you again on day ?
Gerald SheltonCALIFORNIA, United States
We loved the tour with Veronica. With her extensive knowledge of French History we were able to appreciate the history of Versailles and the people that lived there. She's very passionate about the property and takes great care to show her guest how to respect the building and the gardens while visiting them. She was on at the meeting place as agreed upon. There were no surprises, the cost of the train and admissions to the different sites were all arranged as agreed. We would use her again if needed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your rating. It have been, for me too, a very agreeable day. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Beverly ResoUnited States
Veronica gave us a great tour of Paris. We saw so much that we would of never seen on our own.

Veronica is a lovely tour guide who is committed to her client's satisfaction and overall enjoyment. She is smart, thoughtful, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable of history and events. She has a wonderful personality, and sense of humor and your time spent will be well worth it. Thank you Veronica for a wonderful tour of Paris!

Mary CummingsUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your rating. I had spend a very nice day with you too.
Veronica did a great job of arranging a customized tour based on my e-mailed ideas. She suggested alternatives that would work better and arranged a taxi for part of the tour to speed things up. Her overview of Paris from the Maine-Montparnasse Tower was a great way to start our tour, her insightful comments regarding Notre Dame were particularly interesting, and her ability to quickly show us some of the highlights of the Louvre and point out their less recognized features was amazing. Thanks Veronica!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you so much for your comments. I am sorry if my habit of correcting people worried you. The selfie stick is forbidden in all Monuments and Museums, for safety reasons both towards fellow visitors and they can damage pieces of art. As you will have seen there a few guards and many of them dont dare to correct tourists as some answer roughly to them. I feel that my job as a guide is to protect artistic treasures and the tourists enjoying them. I have taken due note of your comment.
Leonard McGeeUnited States
Veronica had a great deal of detailed knowledge of Paris. She helped us navigate local transport and gave good guidance on restaurants. Could have paced the walking tour a bit better to meet the needs of all of our eight person group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thanks for your comment, it was a pleasure to guide you around this marvelous city, where at each conner you find something beautiful and interesting. Shall we meet again one day ?

Veronica loves Paris! We had a 3+ hour tour of the Louvre with her. One of the reasons we opt for tour guides in these large museums is because we don't have to spend time looking at a map and trying to decide where to go next. Veronica is very familiar with the Louvre and she gave us a wonderful "highlight" tour that included the major works and collections. There is no way we would have been able to see everything we did with just a guidebook and a map.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thank for you comment, I'm happy that my visit interested you as I saw that you knew a lot about art. Hope to see you again one day. I wish you a very interesting sabbatic year !!! and if it is possible, with good weather but not to warm !!! Veronica

Veronica was absolutely wonderful! Her knowledge of Paris (and of the metro & pickpockets) was the best we've seen in any city. This is money very well spent!

Excellent tour guide, extremely engaging with 10 & 8 year old grandchildren, very knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommend Veronica to anyone interested in gaining a wealth of information in art and architecture in a short amount of time. Lovely lady with an abundance of energy. If I get to visit Paris again, I would choose Veronica as a guide. I cannot say enough good things about her -- outstanding!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thanks so much for your comment, even if I find that you "exaggerate" a bit to much !!! It have been a pleasure to meet you and your family. Perhaps, and I hope, we shall meet again ? Veronica
Amy MartinUnited States
Veronica is high energy, and so knowledgeable. I had my own private history lesson, and learned details that would not have been possible in a large group. The Louvre - I was schooled in art, and it was spectacular, and she knows the building - it was like I had a back stage pass to the best seats, views and history. Her knowledge of Notre Dame was also exceptional. We spent half an hour plus outside discussing the architecture in minute detail. Fantastic. I will tour Paris with her again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment. For me it has been also a pleasure to meet you and I hope to see you again one day.
Christina CaroUnited States
Veronica was extremely knowledgeable and taught us so much. She packed many sites into our four-hour tour of Paris, including Les Invalides, Montmartre, the Louvre (from the outside), and an in-depth tour of Notre Dame. She also gave us invaluable information about navigating the metro. We enjoyed our tour, despite cold, rainy weather.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, That was very nice from you !!!! I feel so good when I see that a client is happy with the tour !!!!! Thanks so much for you comment and hope to see you again, one day ? and a bit longer that 4 hrs ? or just for drinking a café ? Regards
Karen LaddUnited States
Excellent, very knowledgeable. I can recommend without hesitation. We covered quite a bit of the city. Veronica helped me gain confidence in using the Metro. Made it back to my hotel without any issue. Thank you for introducing me to Paris. Karen
Nancy McDonaldUnited States
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! While my husband has taken art appreciation classes and loves art, for me it has always been either I like something or don't. Veronica has a way of explaining things that make you understand what art is all about. I felt like a child whose eyes have been opened to the beauty of a painting, the techniques, the colors and why someone became so famous. I never understood that before. She was probably the best guide we have ever had and we are lucky to have found her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I'm really so happy that you appreciated so much, you did really inspire me, also, in my way of guiding. I find that is a very good idea to follow and art appreciation course, as this will make you visits to a museum really more interested. Thanks so much for your words.
Laure RossUnited States
Veronica led us on a phenomenal tour of Paris. We chose Saint Chapelle, Musee Cluny, the Arc de Triomphe and Montmartre. We went via the Metro (be prepared to walk a lot) and she was a wealth of knowledge about the history of not only the city, but also each place we went.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, So nice to see you happy with the tour. For me too, it was a pleasure to meet you, it is so agreeable to be with people that you fill so well together. Thanks for you comment Veronica
Veronica is amazing. She took very good care of us. Her knowledge of the Louvre was vast - she really knew her art which I, as an artist, really enjoyed and appreciated. We would highly recommend her. Bill and Winnie Philpott
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Please, let me thanks you for your comment, but I think that you exaggerate, I'm good but I'm not the only one to be. And if I'm good, this is also, because I have someone, in front of me, that is really interested in what I say and this helps me to be GOOD. Thanks Veronica
Henry OliverUnited States
Ms. Veronica was quite simply amazing! She made our day trip, from London to Paris, one of a lifetime. Not only because of her local knowledge but with her extensive knowledge of the historical aspects of Paris but her knowledge of the art was almost like taking a college course in art history! We can NOT say enough good things about the service that she provided! She was dedicated to making sure that we were comfortable and had NO agenda of her own! Her only interest was to satisfy our needs and wants!
Veronica was very informative about the history of Paris. She provided us with a great tour of the city and it's points of interest. This was the first time we have used Tours by Locals, but based on our experience we would definitely use again in the future. Thanks Veronica!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thanks so much for your comment. It was very nice of you to remember me.
Michael ChaseUnited States
it was a full day for Paris but it was a full day of architecture. Not very good
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, thank-you for your comment. In the future I will ensure my clients are interested in the architecture of Paris before we start the tour as Paris is History and Architecture and often this is what guests want and what I cover.
Jim PierceUnited States
Excellent tour. Veronica was very accommodating to a schedule change we requested. She is friendly and she thoroughly knows French history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, thanks for your comment !!!!! I hope to see you again one day ?

Kyle FritschUnited States
Veronica was the perfect guide for our visit! She made the 5 hour tour of Paris interesting for our 10- and 12-year old children in addition to my wife and me. She was aware of our other Paris plans and helped to really uncover areas and sites that we would otherwise not have explored.
Duane HathawayUnited States
there was 3 of us in our tour group. Veronica was very Knowledgeable. She was very accommodating to our tour requests. Her personal insight to Paris was very interesting and refreshing. I would recommend her highly for this tour!

Veronica really helped us navigate and understand a great deal about art and art history on a day when the Louvre was absolutely packed to the max.!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so glad that you appreciated. But also all of you were really interested, so it is thanks to you, that my visit was more interesting. My daughter nice is going to join your daughter, in September, when she will pass through Paris. Veronica

Verónica was very knowledgeable and accommodating as we had two kids , 9 and 5. She talked and played with the children. It was a very relaxing afternoon. Giverny is absolutely a must see. Gracias, Veronica!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias a ustedes, fue un placer conocerlos.
