The tour turned out to be awesome and memorable. Being so passionate about France and art,Romain has encyclopedic knowledge of the arts and history. He is esp brilliant when it comes to the Louvre - he manages to weave the lessons and secrets behind each art work and shows us exactly what we came to see (it is impossible to see ALL 35,000 works of art across 652,000 square feet but Romain found the ones we wanted--breathtaking!). Since he's a teacher, he knows how to keep our kids spellbound and excited

Romain is very passionate and knowledgable about art history. We enjoyed the Louvre so much more with his interesting and informative stories as we worked through the Louvre. His enthusiasm for the art made the tour interesting. We toured areas of interest, he shared insights about the paintings or challenges for the artists as many works were commissioned and artist did not have full artistic freedom. He was able to engage teenager and adults-very much enjoyed!

This was, perhaps, our favorite guiding experience of many good ones so far. To bike the streets of Paris allowed us to see a tremendous amount of things, while getting a true feel for the city. Romain was a tremendous guide, pointing out things large and small that we would have never known about. We loved him, and our 14 yo's loved him. Tremendous guide, fantastic experience!

He presented a thorough explanation of many works which made the experience come alive for us. The Louvre is such a daunting maze of galleries but it was clear Romain felt quite comfortable and adapted his narratives as our questions were presented.

The only two things we reserved for our four day stay in Paris were this tour with Romain and tickets to the Philharmonic. We could not have been more pleased with both of those decisions! Right from the start Romain had a sense of what we might care about (without earlier correspondence) and led us on a tour that shed light on French history, artistic style, archeology, and political intrigue in the collections. Our tour was early in the day and inspired us as we moved throughout the city.

Romain made our first-time tour of the Louvre manageable and so very enjoyable. He was in touch ahead of time, and meeting up was simple. Then we just walked right in. No lines! He made sure we saw the most important (and popular) pieces and many, many more. Romain's tour encompasses history as well as art. He is knowledgable and he has a delightful sense of humor, which made our tour fun and informative. And he even guided us in the best ways to view various pieces. We're so glad we toured with him!

Romain was a wonderful tour guide for our trip to Versailles. He picked us up in his van at our ship in a suburb of Paris and took us on the tour and back to the ship. The day we had picked for the tour there was a strike so we weren't sure we would actually be able to get in, but it all worked out and Romain navigated us through lines and then into Versailles itself. He is very knowlegeable about French history and gave us information that helped us really appreciate what we were seeing.

Romain is a wonderful guide. There were six of us on the Louvre tour and everyone thought Romain did an excellent job. Romain is friendly, knowledgeable, and easily understood. He made art history from the classical through the renaissance come alive. Without him, each painting was another piece of art. With him, we were able to gain some appreciation for the evolution of painting as demonstrated by changing technique in a series of pieces. We loved Romain and would unquestionably use him again.

This was our 2nd tour with Romain as we wanted more time in Montmartre and Marais. The Marais is a mixture of many cultures and he included some Jewish sites. I was moved by the plaque memorializing the babies to four years old who were sent to the concentration camp. We went to see a gallery featuring local artists. He joined us and enjoyed the show as much as we did; he had not had this type of request before and liked the experience. We highly recommend you choose early before he is booked.

The panoramic tour was well spaced between driving and walking around the site. While driving in Paris traffic (an experience in itself) if something might be interesting, he pointed it out and explained. He was cheerful and treated us as friends and set the bar for excellence as a tour guide. We highly recommend him and do it early as he may be booked.

There is so much to see in the Louvre that you can spend weeks there and not really understand what you are looking at. Having a guide that can lend context to what was happening when the pieces were created makes a totally different experience. And we highly recommend using Romain for that.

Romain was friendly and knowledgeable. He was the perfect guide for a first time visitor to the Louvre. We told him in advance some things we would want to see. He mapped out a plan that brought us to everything we wanted to see and other great sites within the museum.

Our group of 6 was delighted to have Romain as our guide to the Musee d'Orsay. We went straight from the Louvre to the Orsay. He is passionate about the art and has a wonderful knowledge base which we learned a lot about. I have no hesitation in recommending Romain to be your guide!

The tour of the Louvre with Romain was fabulous. He arrived a few minutes early, always nice. Our family group was 6 people, three generations ranging in age from 9 to 73. He catered to all of us. His English is very good, although he is modest about it. A great choice.

This was our second tour with Romain, an excellent decision on our part. Versailles is a huge place and he gave us a thorough tour and handled our three generations of 6 people (ranging in age from 9 to 73) very well. We asked him to drive, a little more expensive, but it was a great decision. We avoided the worst traffic and we could discuss any number of issues while driving.

We were not able to go to the Louvre, due to the closing of the site because of the Seine flooding. Romain did the best he could in a the given situation. He gave us a very interesting history of the Louvre and of its importance in French history, then he gave us a guided tour of Notre Dame. The tour was very good and help to dampen are disappointment on not getting to go to the Louve. Thank You Romain.

We took 3 different company tours for different tours during our 3 week trip through Europe. Romain through Tours by locals was by far the best Tour we took. If you want someone knowledgeable and passionate about what they are showing you then Romaine is the guy for you. Taking a private guided tour is the only way to go so highly recommend tours by locals and Romain. If we knew before hand how good it would be we would have booked all of our tours through tours by locals.

Romain was very knowledgeable about the works of art within the museum and how best to navigate through it to see everything we wanted to. Skip the line is priceless and a guide through the maze that is the Louvre is invaluable. You will find yourself walking by paintings and going 'hey, I know that one' from Giotto's Sermon to the Birds to Jacques-Louis David's Raft of the Medusa. The Mona Lisa, Nike of Samothrace, Venus de Milo and Michelangelo's dying and rebellious slaves need no introduction.

Unfortunately, Versailles was closed due to a transport worker strike, so after offering a variety of other options, we chose to go on a walking tour around Louvre and to the Musee Carnavalet in the Marais district. Romain is extremely knowledgeable about the city, the history and especially the art and architectural history of the city. He had to contend with a 12 year old, 2 adults and a change of plans on the fly and everyone was quite happy and interested in the tour.

Romain was a terrific guide for our family. He was incredibly knowledgeable and extremely personable. We spent 3 days with him in Paris - covered museums as well as walking tour of the Marais District and the Latin Quarter. I would recommend him for families with kids - young and teen-age alike -as well as any one else who wants an informative, fun tour of Paris. I would definitely seek him out again for further Paris explorations!

We had a great but short time with Romain. My son was sick, so we had to cut the tour short. However, romain was so knowledgeable about everything, we could have stayed there all day. He was also able to give insights into other places around Paris. Merci Beaucoup!

We met Romain easily thought the Louvre was packed. I enjoyed how he started our tour from the outside explaining the architectural changes over reigns and centuries. It laid the groundwork well for his art explanations, the foundations of how expression artistically and culturally advanced from BC forward. He was charming, concise, and steered us expertly throughout the 2 sections we explored together. It was truly worthwhile to start The Louvre this way, as well as our arrival into Paris for a week.
