Date: Aug 7/18

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.

Again, Romain had a wealth of information, was able to avoid the very long entrance lines, and was an excellent guide.

This service is wonderful. Roman showed us the gardens and the palace in a such a way that brought history to life. He explained all of the political and social aspects of the times and the hidden messages in many of the features. It was fascinating. Roman is a wonderful guide. We were very happy with this tour

Prompt, informative, and pleasant, Romain provided an excellent tour of Versailles for our family. He made it interesting and understandable for our children, as well as the adults. Very fluent and understandable in English. We highly recommend tours with Romain. Merci beaucoup, Romain!

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!

5 star guide, definitely recommend. It was our first time taking a private tour and we were a little unsure what to expect, but Romain quickly put us at ease. Our guided visit to Versailles with him was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. Romain is highly knowledgeable, personable, humorous and courteous. Excellent English and driving too.

Romain was able to pick up the 6 of us at our apartment, drive us to Versailles, tour us around with pretty good English, and agreed to drop us off at Montmartre afterwards...giving us a great recommendation for lunch there. Romain is very passionate about the history and relics of Paris. He also answered many, many questions on the drive to and from Versailles.

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 an excellent guide to Versailles. He is knowledgeable and pleasant. I definitely recommend heading out on the tour in the morning before the larger crowds appear.

Romain was awesome! He was nice, knowledgeable and pleasant. He was able to adjust the tour to keep my teenagers attention spans as well help my elderly mother-in-law with her pace. I was happy with everything. Next time we are in Paris we definitely will contact Romain.

Romain took us from Paris to Versailles for a guided tour and was a fantastic tour guide. He was well-versed in the history and was happy to respond to questions we had on the gardens, palace, etc. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a first-class tour of Versailles.

Romain did a terrific job of making Versailles come alive for us. We had easy access (no lines) on a very busy day at Versailles and he kept us moving through the crowds to see the really important rooms, art and artifacts. Nice vehicle with a careful driver. Much appreciation Romain. Pete, Lyn and Kate

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.

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.

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.
