We had a great time with Alois. She really did take us to all these wonderful hidden places we would never have gotten to on our own. Not only does she know food and fashion in Paris, but she is also quite knowledgeable about culture and history. When we go back to Paris (and we will!), I would totally book Alois again.

A. was a very engaging and knowledgeable tour guide when she described the Montmarte area to me during our third tour together. Each time I was fascinated by her energy as she described the details our present location. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants an in-depth knowledge of Paris' famous landmarks.

Aloïs gave me an energetic and friendly tour while she exhibited military grade navigation skills. The tour offered me an opportunity to explore Paris on a personal level, while Aloïs augmented my understanding of the French love of order and symmetry. I would recommend her tour to anyone who easily becomes bored in their hotel room and needs to wander. Aloïs is a courteous French woman and she operates on a professional level. Choose her if you want a city reconnaissance experience.

She is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. What is most impressive is her sense of class and style which she adds to the touring process. I was completely fascinated by the way she integrated the tour with her unique French personality to make the tour a unforgettable experience. This young woman is a package of style and class which impressed me. I had the feeling of being elevated in my Parisian touring experience.

Alois was a wonderful guide and host. We walked through many easily-overlooked corners of the Le Marias neighborhood and learned a great deal about the history and culture of this unique place. Alois also has great shopping and dining tips. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes! Lots of walking as there is a lot to see!

Aloise was a wonderful guide for us in Montmartre. She gave us an historical perspective of the area including the Impressionist artists which was of particular interest to us. Aloise had interesting anecdotes about this area taking us on a walk showing Montmartre at its picturesque best! We were happy that she found L'Etoiles d'Or, a confectionary shop with an unforgettable proprietress! Merci, Aloise for your excellent translation of rapid-fire French:) Nancy Peterson, CA.

Aloïs was wonderful. We had very little time in Paris, and we wanted to make the most of it. As a family of four, we were also not interested in rushing around. She adjusted for our pace and took us to see more than we ever would have without her help -- Notre Dame, The Louvre, amazing macaroons, an authentic Parisian lunch, and more. Aloïs speaks excellent English, is a pleasant conversationalist, and her knowledge of Paris and its history is clear. I highly recommend her.

Our tour guide Alois, led our family on a wonderful +3-hour walk through the Marais. We range in age from teenagers to seniors and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. She helped us gain an introductory understanding of the Marais, from an historical, social, cultural, etc. perspective by pointing out buildings, landmarks, hidden gardens, architecture,and even some of the bakery goods that are unique to the neighborhood. It was, in total, just what we had hoped to experience.

The tour with Alois added unique insights to our trip. We wanted something that was beyond the traditional monuments and therefore really enjoyed walking around Le Marais with her. Alois is historically well-versed and has good knowledge of architecture and the arts. She gave us some great tips on other places to visit and restaurants to try. We would definitely book another tour with Alois!

We had a wonderful walking tour with Aloïs on our first full day in Paris, and it was the perfect way to begin our vacation in the city. She was so easy to communicate with when setting up our tour, and before I ever met her in person I felt comfortable and confident about our upcoming tour. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the city--in terms of culture and history--and so easy to be with. She tailored our activities for the weather that day and what we were interested in. Couldn't have been better!

This was a really fun tour! It feels much more like just shopping with a friend, and it was very nice. I was feeling under the weather, but Alois was so patient. She picked out great clothes, stayed in my budget and was honest in how the clothes looked on me. I came away with great new pieces for my wardrobe. She also recommended and ate with me at a little restaurant near where we shopped. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who is looking to do serious shopping for designer pieces while in Paris.

Aloïs was puntual, professional, and flexible. Throughout our day, she provided options so we could decide what was the best use of our time. As a result, we didn't get up close and personal with some of the most famous landmarks, but we got excellent views of more sites from afar. We had a delightful lunch with her at a very nice cafe and were able to have a nice conversation that would have been impossible while we were on the move.

Cannot say enough about our perfect day with Aloïs!! She is so knowledgeable and very accommodating. She took us to all the places we wanted to see, and then to all the hidden places we would have otherwise missed. All while relating great bits of history or clever stories. It was like walking around Paris with your best friend. While we ate lunch, she put together a list of other things we could do and places to eat (she is a true foodie!). Don't see Paris without her!!

Having been on several tours offered here, I expected to have more insight into the area but honestly, it seemed to be more of a tour of the guides favourite places to shop and eat with a little sight seeing thrown in with out too much historical insight. Of all the tours I have taken with Tours By Locals, this was my least favourite and rather flat.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorena, This tour took place ago and I do not really remember it so it is hard to understand why you felt this way . I am very sorry you felt like I was not giving enough historical insights.

Recently my fellow engineer and I took a tour of Paris with Alois. We could not be more pleased with her kindness, knowledge and excellent communication skills she possessed. Alois knew where to go and was very accommodating based on the que of lines and the weather. Alois made us feel right at home with her sparkling purple hat and stormy night purse. Who knew she was also a stylist and personally picked a scarf out for my traveling partner as the temperature started to drop. She was charming and bubbly

In addition, she was considerate of the steepness of our climb and chose our route to the top so it was easier for me. We are so grateful for our experience with Alois.
