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.

Excellent tour of central city covering over 2 thousand years of history. David has extensive knowledge of buildings, area and principle individuals who influenced the city from days of Roman occupation. Tour exceeded my expectations.

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.

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!

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

Ideally beautiful Paris should be shown beautifully and that's what David did on the four tours booked with him in June 2019. We requested tours to lesser known sights and he covered so much efficiently and effortlessly. He also volunteered to help with tickets, reservations and suggestions. He made Paris an unforgettable experience which would not have been possible otherwise

David was knowledgeable and friendly. The pace of the tour was perfect (not too slow and not too fast). His English was excellent and he pointed out places to eat and visit. It was the perfect way to start our visit to Paris. Thanks, David.

David was an outstanding tour guide. We had a group of 7, and we all give him a 5 star rating. He was very informative and brought the Latin Quarter and history of "old" Paris to life. We saw many places and learned so much during our 3 hour tour. He was excellent instructor at answering all of our questions and took us to many places we would never have seen or understood the significance of without his tour. Spending the morning with David was one of our highlights of our time in Paris.

We had the best tour guide ever with David. He was very knowledgeable, showed us many places in the short time we had in Paris, the best was his communication prior to meeting with us. Whenever I emailed him a question, he replied quickly. We plan to return to Paris and definitely ask for him again, he was awesome.

David is an excellent tour guide and his passion for Paris really shows. His knowledge of French history, culture and all things Paris is outstanding and his gentle manner of explaining and story telling is very clear and engaging. David was flexible and happy to adapt our tour to whatever we wanted, also took us on the metro which we had requested. Absolutely recommend David as a Paris guide.

David was a wonderful tour guide. He was easy to contact and gave us suggestions for a riverboat tour the day before our walking tour. The day before our tour David contacted us and suggested meeting earlier which was great! We were able to tell David what we had already seen and he tailored our tour to our needs and wants. Paris is amazing especially through the eyes of someone local who loves history and Paris. He gave use suggestions on where to visit in Provence the next day! Perfect Day!

David did an astounding job of describing the history and architecture of the Les Marais and the Jewish and Latin quarters. These are little gems which people must not overlook and his knowledge is astounding.

We did two half day tours with David . I went with him based on ratings on the website and I am glad I did. I had made the booking many months in advance and had multiple interactions over email with him. He is very prompt with responding and was helpful in guiding an itinerary which took our wishes into consideration. My son is 8 yrs old and the pace of the tour was perfect for him too. David's way of conducting the tour made it interesting for the kids too and he was wonderful with them . Great guy.

Excellent tour! It was the perfect intro to Paris for our children ages 15, 15 and 12. David was patient with our family of 5 and very knowledgeable. He definitely showed us places and shared information we would never have known or found on our own. David and I emailed a few times in advance and he customized the tour to meet our requests. I would recommend this tour and tour guide!
