Touring with David, in Paris was the best decision I have ever made. This was not my first trip to Paris. In the previous trips, I made the mistake of taking a tour bus (day tour) where they will only show you the highlights. Thanks to David, I got to see the areas of Paris that are more frequently visited by local Parisians than tourists. Even for picture taking, he took me to areas less visited by tourists where I can still take photos of beautiful Paris landmarks. Hope to see him again for more!

David was exceptional! We are so glad we chose Him for our full day tour of Paris. David had this amazing ability to keep each of us engaged with His passion, knowledge and understanding of Paris. David is a very caring person and we could all tell that he deeply cared about our experience in Paris. We are still amazed as to how much we were able to cover and see in just a day. You really need weeks to see Paris. We have done many guided tours; David has become a favorite of ours!

David is an exceptional guide. Very knowledgeable about his craft as a guide and very knowledgeable about Paris & it's history. He's very polite and cordial also he's extremely accommodating. I was running late for our tour and he didn't mind waiting and even offered to extend the tour by the amount of time I have lost by being late. David was very concerned about my wellbeing since it was a walking tour & we covered about 6 miles within 3 or 4 hours and he offered breaks few times.

David is an excellent guide who listens to what you want to see and then delivers. We learned mire in 3 hours about Paris and French life than in a week on a previous visit. He knows the city well and loves to talk about it. He speaks flawless English and understands that travelers may need to be helped with transportation. He met us at our hotel and taught us how to use the metro. I highly recommend David and suggest you book him early in your visit to Paris.

He provided excellent historical perspective to each place we visited.

David was wonderful. We gave him a 5 only because their was no 10 available! We only had one day in Paris and he insured we saw everything we wanted in a pace we could handle. He recommended food to try that was delicious! He was knowlagable about French history. He speaks perfect English and even helped us find the perfect souvenir. At the end of they day he went out of his way to leave us at a location that best suited our needs. We are planning another trip next year and we WILL be using David again!

My husband and I are traveling with our granddaughters and had a most enjoyable time learning about Paris. This is the 3rd visit to Paris for my husband and I, we learned several new facts about the beautiful city of Paris. I can't say enough about David's knowledge, professionalism, and wonderful demeanor!

David was a great tour guide. He added a lot of information about the city of Paris as we went from shop to shop. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. There is a lot of walking. You might want to take the bus towards the end of the tour, if possible. Also, during the summer, many shops may be closed due to vacation. It was a great tour for our teenage kids who enjoyed trekking to each of the macaron shops.

He was a very likeable young man with a fair general knowledge of the area. However, he did not come with the enthusiasm we have experienced with other Tours by Locals guides. During the tour we passed another small tour where the guide was most inspiring. We were hoping for more Jewish history of the Marais area. Some of the information given was also incorrect. Fortunately we checked with the local orthodox synagogue. There is no eruv anywhere in Paris!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Naomi. I am sorry not to have been a more entertaining guide. I chose a more respectful approach, especially when dealing with such grave issues as the Jewish history of Paris. Due to your group's appetite for knowledge, I had to tell my stories in a confused order and I appologize for this. As for the ervu, I prepared this tour years ago with jewish friend of mine, now in his 70s, who has lived in the Marais for most of his life. He's the one who explained the ervu to me, the very ones I showed you.

David is a skilled guide. He provided a perfect tour with a complete overview of the main sites in Paris. We transitioned easily from site to site and to various ethnic areas all the while providing detailed background information. We are well traveled - but had never been to Paris and this was a superb way to be introduced to the city - particularly since we were only there for 2 days. All along the route he pointed out items of interest. We were lucky to spend our day with him. He is kind and attentive.

We had a great tour with David. He had the difficult task of preparing a tour for a group containing one person who had been to Paris four times, one who had visited twice and one who was new to the city. He showed us many new things and gave us interesting stories and insights into classic sites. He was friendly, engaging and interacted very well with our daughter. This is a much better way to see the city than the typical bus tour. We would definitely book a tour with David again.

David was on time (we were a few minutes late) and EXTREMELY knowledgeable on all things Paris. We did a general tour, and had 3 kids in tow, so it probably slowed down his agenda, but for us it worked great. He was patient, and took us to a few spots the kids wanted to see - famous backery, skipped a few museums, and just a general great use of the time we had.

David picked us up at our hotel and took us down the Champs Elysees to Christmas market. The market was so crowded, David took us around the throngs of people to Concorde square. Gave us the history of the area, took us to see all the beautiful Christmas lights- opera house, galleries Lafayette. He then gave us options- we metro to Montmartre. Much less crowded- simply beautiful. David was a great guide- highly recommend.

David was very knowledgeable on the history of the city and culture, plus all around friendly and fun. Highly suggest and would book again in a heartbeat.

David has an amazing ability to communicate the history and sights of Paris in a way that is easy to comprehend and appreciate as well as fun and personable. He gauged our wants and needs and customized our tour accordingly. And his skills in communicating and speaking in English make you think English is his first language instead of him being a native Frenchman. Excellent choice!

A fantastic experience that we will always remember. ...And, we used the metro system which made it easier to navigate around Paris after our time with David. Well worth the money spent.

We took a 7-hour tour with Daviid on our first day in Paris, and could not be any happier. David gave us a great overview of most of Paris's important sites and explained the background about each one.. He also helped us plan our next few days, explained how to use/navigate a the excellent Metro system, a and generally made us feel comfortable in this beautiful city. If you are planning on spending several days in Paris, this tour is well worth the money. Thank you David... we had a wonderful day!
