Isabelle was absolutely delightful, personable and extremely knowledgeable! She went at our pace, showed great grace, patience and care in teaching us about the history of Paris!! She went above and beyond in showing us how to safely navigate the underground and even gave us tips on what to do the next day on our own. She stayed two hours past our time frame! Wow, what service she gave us! We will be back to see Isabelle and Paris!!

Isabelle was a wonderful guide. She has so much knowledge about the Louvre and art work. My 19 yr old and 12 yr old wanted more time with her and after the tour said we should do every museum with her as our guide. She is informative, funny and engaging. Loved her!!!

When we arrived in Paris, the city seemed daunting. Isabelle made it seem comfortable and quaint. She was knowledgeable and provided answers for any question we posed. She took us to a wonderful cafe for lunch and the best ice cream in Paris. We would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to spend an insightful and interesting day experiencing Paris.

First I would like to thank Isabelle for an wonderful tour. We opted for 2.5 hours in the Louvre and a 1.5 hour walking tour. While some in the group were not well versed in the art world, everyone thoroughly enjoyed Isabelle's knowledge, passion and her love for her city. She carefully crafted the tour to our group making it memorable and special for everyone...providing interesting facts and points of interests. I would highly recommend Isabelle. The tour was a highlight of our trip to Paris.

Isabelle was the perfect guide for my 80 year old mother, 19 year old son and I. She asked about our interests prior to our visit, and planned the perfect day. She exceeded our expectations and made our visit to several museums both interesting and fun. We would highly recommend her as an excellent choice for a guide. If her schedule wasn't full we would have booked her for an additional day.

Isabelle was amazing. So knowledgeable and fun! When we booked the tour we didn't realize it was May Day and thus has to contend with many things closed, roads blocked and subway stations closed preparing for possible riots and protests from yellow vests and black bloc. So we had to adjust our tour as a result but amazingly saw so many wonderful things and completely avoided any trouble. I would highly recommend Isabelle!!

Isabelle helped steer us through Versailles - despite all of the people there we were able to explore the gardens and fountains in relative peace and enjoy the fountain shows. She provided great context for the grounds as well as the palace. We would have missed many of the unique fountains in the gardens without her guidance and timing.

Isabelle was flexible in helping to order our day to get the most out of it. She picked a wonderful path to Montmarte in the morning enabling us to enjoy much of it without crowds while giving us a great local flavor. In the afternoon she picked a great route through the Louvre hitting great highlights (fortress foundation, history, beautiful sculptures, Leonardo paintings, etc.) along with antiquities from biblical times that were of particular interest to our group (Assyrian statues, Hammurabi's code)

A brilliant informative tour with Isabelle. Our time was at our pace . We chose to learn the metro system and ride the train to Montmarte. We walked the streets absorbing the sights and sounds and views and took in all the knowledge and information Isabelle could give us. We would so recommend a private guide for indepth knowledge in our language . Such a fun person and this tour will be a memorable one we will always remember. Thankyou Isabelle for such and enjoyable day. We feel we have a new friend.

A fantastic full day discovering Paris with our family of 5 and Isabelle, who had a real feel for monitoring the attention spans of our teenage and preteen girls. 7 hours for kids is a long time and Isabelle paced the day perfectly, knowing when our kids could absorb more knowledge and when they were ready for a macaroon or gelato break—at the best places in Paris as well! The result was an action packed day where we experienced the Louvre, Notre Dame, Champs Elysee, Arc de Triumph and more. Excellent!

Although she was hesitant to take us on at first but with a little nudge she obliged. And I am grateful. She showed us the metro system and guide us through the Paris with ease and charm. Our kids can't speak enough about her after the tour ended. Paris was very more charming and enchanting with Isabelle as our guide.

Isabelle took us on an express tour of the Louvre. She made the experience informative but also interesting and fun. None of us are particularly knowledgeable about art and Isabelle brought the art to life for us, challenged us to look at the art in new ways and generally made the Louvre approachable and not intimating. We saw and discussed some of the best known works and the whole family continues to talk about what we learned from her. Highly recommend this tour and Isabelle in particular.

Isabelle gave us a fantastic tour of Paris and the Louvre. We made the most of our tour with a great history and highlights of the Louvre and a couple hours hearing about Paris as we walked by Notre Dame and the Left Bank's Latin quarter. We learned many details of French history and culture that would have been overlooked by us without her services. We also used her recommendation for lunch before our tour started to get a jump start on our brief Paris immersion.

FANTASTIC TOUR!!!! We are a family of 5 (including 3 teenagers) from the U.S. vising France for the first time. On day 1 we did the 7 hrs walking tour of Paris with Isabelle (please see my comments for that tour) and on day 2 did this overview tour of the Louvre. You have heard if you spent 60 seconds looking at each of the objects at the Louvre, for eight hours a day, it would take you 75 days to see them all. Isabelle gave us historical and logistical insight so we could plan the rest of our visit.

Absolutely fabulous tour of the Louvre from Isabelle. She is friendly, engaging and, importantly, extremely knowledgeable. We wanted our 13 year old grandson to visit the Louvre on our trip with him to Paris, but we were unsure whether he would enjoy walking around an art museum and we were concerned that he might become bored - so we opted for a short tour. Probably a mistake now that we know Isabelle. She made the experience so interesting for him (and us) that we were all disappointed when it was over.

If I could give Isabelle 10 stars I would, she gave me and my family a wonderful tour of Paris with plenty of history and background information which is what I had requested. On her tour we stayed away from the main tourist destinations which we had already seen and we concentrated on the individual neighborhoods like the latin quarter, Saint Germain, and Montmartre. Isabelle is very pleasant to be around, we loved our time with her.

Excellent tour of the Louvre and the D'Orsay museums. Isabelle is both personable and knowledgeable in her presentation. She kept our Granddaughter engaged and interested throughout. We highly recommend Isabelle for all tours in Paris. Simply the best!

Our second half-day with Isabelle started at Ste Chapelle on the Ile de la Cite, continued to Notre Dame, and ended with an overview of the Latin Quarter, and the best ice cream in Paris. At the end of our time, Isabelle installed us in a lovely sidewalk cafe. We learned so much and were overwhelmed with the beauty of Ste Chapelle. I highly recommend this kind of a tour which was tailored to our pace and desires. Thank you, Isabelle and toursbylocals.

My group of 4, including my 10 year old granddaughter, could not have been happier with our private tour of the Louvre with Isabelle. She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and flexible. She gave us a perfect mix of history, art history and local color, and answered our questions patiently. This was such a great introduction to the world museums for my granddaughter that I am sure she will be searching out more experiences like this one. Thank you Isabelle!!!

I would give Isabelle 6 stars if I could. We were a group of 5 including 3 teenage girls. She really kept the interest and attention of the girls (and the wife and I). I loved how she was very protective of our group! Isabelle was very responsive to our needs and allowed us to customize the tour on the fly. She was truly a pleasure.

Isabelle was fantastic! She met us at an Airbnb out of her way and stayed with us on a tour of Versailles and back again to our apartment. She was very informative, funny and caring on her tour. She always asked us if we needed restroom breaks or meal breaks and what we wanted to see or do in addition to our trip. We definitely recommend her for a tour anywhere in or around Paris!

Isabelle was the best tour guide we have experienced on this site. She knew what she was showing us and never made up stories about anything. She was flexible and provided us with a recommendation for dinner that was the best meal we had in Paris. Her tours are not to be missed.

This was our second time with Isabelle in Paris and she was such a pleasure to be with on both occasions. She is very knowledgeable about the city and the people and she has an easy going bright personality that makes her even more fun to have as a guide. Would highly recommend her as a guide.

Isabella took us on a fantastic tour of the city. She arrived early at our hotel and we were off to meet Paris. First was a lesson using the Metro systems. Learning we didn't want to go up in the Eiffel Tower and the fact that in two days she would guide us through the Louvre, she quickly created a grand tour, starting with the Mont Martre to enjoy the panoramic views of the city and the fun art. A fun rest of day with history delivered with enthusiasm and great wit. Can't wait til our next time.

Isabelle is a wonderful guide - full of energy, funny, kind, protective of her guests, and had so many stories that kept us excited for each destination. She's so flexible and handled changes even if we kept thinking of new places to go as the day went on.She loves children and understands how they think so our family loved her. Having lived in Asia, she knows what Asians like and had tons of insights/suggestions. She has the magic to make your dream visit come true.

If you have read my previous reviews of Isabelle, you know that I am a huge fan! She is an incredible guide. Her English is impeccable and she is able to answer any questions you might have about neighborhoods, food, customs, art, music or history. She is quite easy-going and has a terrific sense of humor. The time I spent with her flew, because she was always regaling me with interesting historical facts. She allows you to go at your own pace and customizes the tour just for you.

This is the second time I've visited Paris and have used Isabelle as my guide. She is incredible. Her knowledge of the history, not only of Paris, but of France is astounding. She speaks impeccable English. She makes it very clear from the beginning of the tour that the tour is "my day" so she is flexible to any changes that might occur while we are walking and observing. I would not hesitate to recommend Isabelle to anyone who is visiting Paris for the first or the 50th time.

Isabelle did a great job for our day tour! She was very well informed and kept our tour on a great pace, while not overloading us. She was very flexible and listened to what we wanted to see, while adding a few of her own favorite spots that we would not have otherwise known to ask about. She related well to everyone in our party, including our 18 and 20 year old boys as well as the parents (slightly older). I would highly recommend her for your group.

She was very attentive to our needs and made sure that it is really our day. She checked us from time to time and we deeply appreciate it. We felt secured and hassle free from the beginning to the end. Also, she's all around! If you need a tour guide, I highly recommend Isabelle. She is one of a kind and really knows what she's doing.

I cannot say enough nice things about Isabelle. We missed our train to Paris, and were running late. She waited for us at the hotel, and was happy to begin the tour on our time. We only had a short time in Paris, and she catered our tour to see exactly what we wanted- we walked, took public transportation, saw most of the amazing sights and learned so much about Paris. I only wish we had more time. Isabelle was also very helpful in getting food for our food allergic son. Thank you Isabelle!
