Romain is an outstanding guide. My husband and I had a wonderful five hour tour of Giverny with him. He picked us up at our Paris hotel, provided commentary as we drove to Giverny. He was extremely knowledgeable about Monet and other Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists. He is pleasant, low key and ensured our day was fun and informative. I highly recommend him.

We had a fantastic tour! We were picked up right on time & driven to Versailles in a new Mercedes Sprinter van and with Romain's planning our wait time was super-limited. Since our time for the day was short - Romain did a great job giving us a high-level, concise & super-interesting tour of all the important parts of the palace. He was engaging & his English was phenomenal. We wouldn't do Versailles without his expertise. Thank you!!

Romain and his tour easily met expectations. We were two couples, one from USA and one from Poland (with good English language skills) with some knowledge of Versailles and French history. He had no trouble communicating with us, and was able to tie in with American and Polish history. My wife has mobility issues and uses a walker. Romain was right on top of that, finding ways to bypass stairs where possible, pacing the tour to her speed, and making sure she did not not get lost in the crowd. Thanks.

Romain arrived on time and spoke excellent English. We felt he gave an excellent tour and gave us insights into how the French kings controlled the aristocracy and explained how this was shown in the art of Versailles. Going by private tour got us passed the long lines and allowed us to move along at a comfortable pace. We will definitely use ToursByLocals on future trips.

Our tour with Romain was fabulous. My teen boys were interested the entire time as he guided us through the maze of rooms. We all learned so much and gained a new appreciation for the art he showed us. His knowledge of the Louvre as well as the history in addition to his delightful personality made our morning there one of the best of our vacation. He was able to capture our attention and keep the tour moving at a pace that kept both adult and teen engaged. Plus skipping the lines were a true bonus.

Romain was punctual with a very nice Mercedes van that he proved he could drive anywhere in Paris. His English is great and so is his sense of humor. If you want to catch all of the touristy sites in Paris, Romain is your guide. He had tickets ready for a River Cruise and he got us to the front of the long line. He also managed to get us tickets to see the Eiffel Tower at nine pm so we could experience it in daylight and when it is lit up after dark. We will book Romain again on our next trip back!

Ramon was our guide for a very enjoyable day trip through many of the key landmarks and beautiful countryside that comprises the Champagne Region of France. He has a very good grasp of history and the pivotal role played by the Church and the monarchy from the time of Clovis to the post-WWII rebuilding that brought this part of France into the 21st Century. We visited the tomb of Dom Perignon, the majestic Norte Dame cathedral in Reims, several Champagne houses, and wound our way through many villages.

After Louvre, we were glad Romain also took us to Versailles. If not for him and our wheel-chaired companion, we would have spent more than 2 hours in line. Even then, we spent the first hour waiting for palace to re-open after security closure. Romain whizzed us past the lines and we learned a lot about the history, practices and the kings of France. Despite our late entry and Romain's scheduled next tour, he managed to take us to the gardens and made up for lost time. Thank you Romain!

I picked Romain because of his background in history and art, and he would not mind our wheel-chaired companion. He guided 5 of us through the handicap entry, and to the important highlights of the Louvre. The exhibits were crowded but he managed to find private spots where he explained not only the subjects and historical background of the paintings and sculptures, but also the different techniques of the artists. We really learned a lot and developed new appreciation for the arts. Thanks Romain.

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!

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.

He is very personable and it was a pleasure to have him show us the most important art in both museums without feeling rushed. He got us skip the lines tickets, which saved time so we were able to easily cover all of the main exhibits during the tours. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting museum tours in Paris.

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.

Romain made our visit to the Louvre educational and manageable. The museum can be daunting due to its enormous size and if you only have one day to explore this wonder, a guide is a must have. Romain not only pointed out the high points, he took the time to educate us about what we were seeing and helped us to truly appreciate the works of the artists. A great first visit for us!

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.

Romain was a good history teacher because on this tour he was able to make the bricks and art come alive as if they with us now. 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.

Although the distance from Paris to Normandy limits the amount of time you get to spend at the beaches, this tour does a good job of hitting the major sites. Romain was very accommodating in picking us up and bringing us back to our apartment in Paris.

Romain was really excellent in our tour of the Louvre. His knowledge combined with his humor and wit made for a thoroughly enjoyable time. 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.

WONDERFUL tour with Romain! He picked us up at our hotel and showed us everything we wanted to see in our short time in Paris and more! His knowledge of Paris and it's history was impressive and he was very relaxed and his English was very good! My daughters and I had a wonderful half day and I will book with him again when my husband and I come back next year!

We did a fabulous half-day tour to Versailles with Romain. He knowledge was encyclopedic, and he kept us all wrapt with stories about the rooms, the art, the grounds, the royal family, the history, and traditions. Our only disappointment is that the tour came to an end that that we couldn't just spend our entire trip with him. I couldn't recommend him any more highly.

Out tour guide Romain was superb. All skip the line tickets were purchased before hand by Romain for the Catacombes and The Louvre. The tours went off acccroding to plan with no hitches. Romain is extremely pasionate about his love for history. We ended the tour more educated about histroy and art, than when we started. Romain goes out of his way to make sure that you get the best experience of the tour. Thank you Romain for making Paris a memorable holiday.

Romain is passionate about art, and inspires an appreciation of the messages being shared through the art and every facet of its composition. He makes complex ideas and relationships easy to follow and understand. And he communicates with ease at what ever level the group is in their own understanding of art and its history. When our tour was over we felt like we could have spent the entire day with Romain and still want more. Excellent choice!

Romain was wonderful! He was on-time to pick us up and his van very comfortable for the six of us. He was very knowledgeable about Normandy and even provided us with photos for us to compare what it was like during the invasion to the present. We only had a limited amount of time (since the drive from Paris is about 3 hours each way), and the places he took us to gave us an awesome overview of D-Day. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would definitely use him again should we return to. France.
