Patrice arrive 5 minutes before scheduled time and met us as desribed. He then went over plans for day. Very informative of points of interest. Had pictures of area from original era allowing us to see transition over time. Was very supportive and showed interest in making our day the best possible experience. Great way to see Paris for 1st time.

Our group really enjoyed Patrice's tour. Met us at our hotel as planned and left for a full day tour. We hit all the sights as advertised and more. We used the metro, bus and our feet to get around... always using the most efficient means to minimize travel time and maximize the sightseeing time. He explained how to use the metro so we could use it ourselves the following day. He directed my sister (the photographer) to the best spots at each stop for photos.

Our day with Patrice was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about Normandy and the events of DDay but didn't come across like an encyclopedia. Instead we felt as if we were learning about Normandy from a local's perspective. He took us to an excellent local restaurant for lunch, and a local apple farm/distillery where they make Calvados (kind of an apple congnac unique to the Normandy region of France. I highly recommend Patrice for a day of learning about DDay, but also being immersed in local culture

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you mike for your very nice review. It was my pleasure to show your my birth land... Normandy.

Our trip to the Loire Valley with Patrice was fantastic. We were picked up on time, given an overall description of what our day would entail and the tour exceeded our expectations. Patrice gave us historical facts as well as "gossip" about the inhabitants of the chateaus as well as a brief explanation of the providence of the various wines in the Loire Valley before our wine tasting. His sense of humor and attention to details was so appreciated and we highly recommend him to all!

Patrice was a very knowledgeable guide who obviously was very well acquainted with Paris. We visited many key sites in Paris and a few surrounding suburbs. We felt overall guide was a bit structured for a private tour and we had little to no input on what to see or where to go. There was a lot of walking which was to be expected) and it was nice to be able to use the local metro system. What a city Paris is! Can't wait to go back!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review. Yes, Paris is a beautiful city with much to see. My tour is indeed structured as to highlight the most popular sights for tourists. Had I known that you were interested in seeing other sights, I would have gladly altered the itinerary to accommodate your needs. Because of time constraints, we would have had to miss some of the most popular Parisian landmarks. I’m glad you enjoyed the tour and hope you return to the City of Lights as there is much more to discover.

Patrice is very kind and sweet, however, it was a little too much walking for our 2 children (9 and 11yo). We walked 11 miles that day! We appreciated Patrice picking us up at the train station and delivering us back (a day trip), but felt that the day was more about checking off sites from a list rather than making the tour enjoyable. Also, I would have preferred more commentary while we were walking, rather than feeling like we were just trying to keep up! I likely won't be using Tours by Locals again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Antonia Thank you for your thoughtful review. Your comments were very insightful and have given me much to think about. It was my pleasure to have been able to give you and your family a taste of Paris in the short time we shared together. Sincerely yours PatriceB

Patrice is the perfect guide: attentive, informative, knowledgeable and fun, but giving one enough space to explore and discover. He ensures the best use of your time and goes beyond the strict outline of the day by, for example, ensuring that we had a dinner reservation and transport in place. His knowledge of Paris is second to none and I would recommend him for any of the number of tours that he offers. Thanks to him we managed to explore the vast market and find exactly what we needed.

I hired Patrice for a day at the Paris Flea Market. I was specifically looking for a mirror. There is no way I could have gotten my perfect mirror, without his help. That place is HUGE. I would have wasted so much time just trying to find what I was looking for. Since I do not speak French, he helped with bargaining for me and helped arrange the shipping home. He's also a very pleasant and personable man, as well as very knowledgable. We enjoyed our day with him!

I came to Paris only for only a couple of days. I am so glad I hired Patrice to show me this colorful city! I can not believe how much we explored in just a day. Patrice made sure I wasn't rushed, respected my pace and interests. He amused me with unusual stories of Paris history, and by the end of the day, I felt like at 'Parisian at home'.

My family and I traveled to London and I could not conceive of experiencing my first trip overseas without seeing Paris. Although we had only a short visit, Patrice was able to assist me in seeing all the highlights of Paris I had always longed to see.

Patrice was outstanding! We knew we were in great hands when he proactively called two weeks before our tour to offer assistance on any parts of our trip to Paris. He was an amazing guide and helped us navigate and negotiate the city and antique markets. He truly made the trip more fun and we will defiantly use him again on our next visit!

Tour: Day at the Mont saint Michel, Paris, Île-de-France, France
Date: Jun 8/16

Without a doubt, the best decision we made for our family trip to Paris. Patrice was informative, punctual, accommodating, engaging, and organized. We were suppose to have a one day excursion that included Mont St. Michele and a neighboring town which specialized in copper production. But due to the manner in which he organized our limited time, he was also able to squeeze in Omaha Beach, American cemetary at Normandy, and even a local winery that specialized in apple cider. apple cider. Merci Patrice.

A great tour. We saw most of Paris, he modified his tour on the go for us. We got to see all the sites the tourist wants to see plus other sites the tourist does not know they want to see but must be seen. We are planning a return trip to see his other tours. Engaging, entertaining, informative. It is like seeing Paris with a friend showing you around. If you only book one tour of Paris book this one. You will walk but you won't feel it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jose Thank you so much for your nice review.I'm very happy that you enjoy this day with me as guide.I had a great time and hope to see you again. Sincerely Patrice

My last day in Paris was punctuated with a brisk morning walk to Arc de Triumph, continuing on to the Eiffel Tower, lunch in a nice cafe and the Metro to Mont Martre. Patrice told me about all points of interest on the way. He seemed to have an encyclopedic brain filled with limitless information on the subject of his beloved Paris. Clearly passionate about his city and his work, my tireless guide made my lifelong dream a reality. If you haven't seen Paris with Patrice, you haven't seen Paris!

Monet and Van Gogh in the same tour is truly a special experience. We traveled a leisurely countryside route in a luxury car, making brief stops to explore some sites along the way. It was a refreshing change to be out of the city for a while. The tour included much more than expected, including a stroll through the villages and visits to original painting sites. The restaurant was wonderful and was situated along the Seine at the site of an ancient fortress. Patrice made this tour exceptional!

For anyone traveling alone and on a tight schedule, it's most important to select the right guide. I wanted to see and do absolutely everything there is to see and do in Paris--in three all too short days. After a delightful introduction in my hotel lobby and a serious discussion about my footwear, I changed my shoes and off we went. I have a desk job--he said we could take the Metro, but I'd miss a lot--he was right, as he always was. I opted to walk and missed nothing. It was a fabulous tour!
