Alois was the perfect guide. We asked for a tour of Paris that was "off the beaten track" and she delivered! Alois was friendly, knowledgable and professional...it was like seeing the city with a friend. We would absolutely take tours with Alois again.

Alois was a wonderful guide; small intimate gardens to wonderful parks, shops and sights. She is the best!

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!

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.

Awesome guide. On time and eager to show us Paris.

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!
Loved this tour with Alois. We were able to walk and experience an area of Paris we hadn't previously explored in our trips to Rome.

Knowledgeable ... cheerful and welcoming .... enjoys Paris and helped us to do the same. She does other neighbourhood tours, and shopping ones too. We'd ask to travel in Paris with her again.
Hyman SukiennikAtlanta, GA, United States
Others have given Alois good ratings, perhaps we caught her on a bad day. She seemed to be knowledgeable about her history and some of the locations that we visited.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hyman I am sorry your experience was disappointing. I just had a bad medical diagnosis in the morning and thought I would be able to do the tour as usual anyway. Apparently I was not, I did not want to disappoint by cancelling the very day, Sorry about this, Kind regards,

Alois was delightful and charming. We explored hidden areas and neighborhood shops and museums with ease. Her knowledge of the area and it's history was impressive. In just a few hours we felt like we were at home in the area.
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.
