We absolutely LOVED Isabelle. She was on time and had a wonderful itinerary planned for us. She was great at adjusting as our desires changed and finished our tour at the location we requested. She gave us just the right amount of history and could see when we were getting overwhelmed. She selected a wonderful cafe for lunch and helped us understand things that would make the rest of our vacation great like navigating the metro. I highly recommend Isabelle. You won't be disappointed!

The 7-hour walking tour was a lot of fun and Isabelle was excellent.  Isabelle has a great personality and she was knowledgeable, funny and very entertaining.  She also brought us to one of her favorite cafe's for a delicious lunch.  One in our party had a bad knee and Isabelle was very patient and adapting to the walking so that we all enjoyed the tour.  We enjoy Tours by Locals because it is like visiting a family or friend in another country and they are excited to show you their city.

We were visiting London and decided to take the Eurostar over to enjoy a day in Paris. Isabelle met us right at the train and we started our day. She is extremely friendly and personable! Her knowledge on Paris, the history, art, current events, etc. is incredible. Her sense of humor was amazing and she made sure to guide the tour at our pace. The amount of stuff we saw in just 8 hours was amazing. When the tour was finished she dropped us right back at the train. I highly recommend a tour with Isabelle!

In our experience, Isabelle was an energetic, knowledgeable, and fun guide. It is obvious that she has a great passion for her city and she loves to share her passion with others. She was very willing to be flexible. She was able to provide interesting background information for all the sights of Paris. She also gave us a great many hints and tips to help make our remaining days in Paris more enjoyable. We would whole heartedly recommend Isabelle!

We could not have wanted a more knowledgable guide than Isabelle. Despite our late arrival, she waited for us and spent the next 8 hr sharing the sites of Paris. She was incredibly flexible with altering our plans during the day, and she really enjoys sharing her knowledge of history and the most efficient means of getting around. If there were six stars, we would have given her extra points as well. Don't miss Ste. Chapelle, the highlight of our day.

We had 3 days in Paris with Isabelle. Just before our trip, I had a medical issue that made it difficult to walk. Isabelle was so accommodating in changing the itinerary for our days with her. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a memorable experience in Paris. She is so knowledgeable about art and Paris and French history. She gave us a new understanding of the French people and customs. We'll never forget our time with her and if we ever return, will be sure to book her first thing.

Very helpful and responsive to our questions and needs. Ultra knowledgeable and informative about Paris and the French culture. Provided us information to help as we will be spending several more days in Paris, especially teaching us how to use the Metro and public transit system. Exceeded our expectations in every way!

Can not believe our good fortune getting Isabelle. She was knowledgable, patient and very pleasant. We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a history of the locations and the path she guided us avoiding the tourist trap highlight approach for a locals path. We ended up in the same end location but got so much more history. It's like walking with a friend.

Isabelle is a wonderful guide. She is very personal and knowledgeable about Paris. We had no set agenda as to what we wanted to see and left it up to Isabelle's discretion. We saw and learned about parts of Paris which never would have occurred to us. Overall it was a great day thanks to Isabelle. She comes highly recommended. Scott and Valerie

We had a delightful day with Isabelle. We toured with her on our first full day in Paris, and her advise and spirited guidance will make our remaining week in this great city much easier and time efficient. Most especially learning and feeling comfortable riding the Metro and city busses! We had some touring preferences which she also met 100%. The temp was in the low 90's and she thoughtfully tried to keep us in the shade on this hot, steamy day.

Isabelle was wonderful as she accommodated not only the adults in the group but the children as well(10&12 yrs old). She made the tour interesting with her knowledge of the past and present facts of Paris. We had the most marvelous time with her! Our day with her was our favorite time in Paris!

A wonderful, fun day for 4 of us with Isabelle! Our 1st time in Paris from US & she took great care of us - on time pick up at hotel, a walk down Champs-Elysées, popping into shops of interest to the ladies. Then onto Metro/bus to Louvre, pausing to stroll on Seine. Walked us thru Louvres grounds, to a lovely cafe for lunch, to Latin Qrt. & nearby then back on Metro to our hotel. She speaks great English, knows Paris well & how to see lots in short time. We parted great friends! We highly recommend her.

We had a wonderful day exploring Paris with Isabelle. We visited Montmartre, the Marais, the Champs Élysées and much more. Isabelle is enthusiastic, charming, knowledgeable and a little bit cheeky (a good thing). We learnt so much from Isabelle and she made the city come alive for us. We would highly recommend Isabelle as a guide and will use her again next time we are in Paris.

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!!

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.

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.

Best tour guide in Paris. Isabelle was extremely knowledgeable. We spend the day with her like a Parisian visiting Paris like a "local". Isabelle worked at our pace and leisure and at the same time narrating the beautiful history of Paris. Thank you Tours by Local for providing great tours in every city we visit. Looking forward to visit Paris again and hire Isabelle as our tour guide!!! Best, Greny & Rene

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 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)

Isabelle is an amazing guide and took great pains to ensure every member of my family was enjoying the tour. We had just one day to spend in Paris and she showed us everything we wanted to see and places we didn't even know we should see. She pulled out all the stops to make sure our experience in Paris was unforgettable.

Isabelle was a wonderful guide; genuinely friendly, warm, and helpful. She helped navigate travel away from the local protests, and made our custom day in Paris wonderful. We could not have picked a better guide for our excursion, and would actively seek out her services in the future, if we come back to Paris.

Isabelle was an amazing guide! She was so knowledgeable and even though it was not advertised as a kid-friendly tour she was able to adjust on the fly and keep my children (7 and 5 years old) interested. We learned an incredible amount and never felt like we were on a tour, but rather like we were taking a stroll through Paris with a friend. She really went above and beyond and I can not recommend her enough!

Great job! Very knowledgable! Isabelle took us to places that we would have never found on our own! The Latin Quarter was awesome (a hidden gem)! She was also very honest with us when it came to getting the most from our tours (what to see with her and what to see on our own). A++++ rating! Thanks for an excellent visit to Paris!
