Pamela is an amazing and extremely knowledgeable guide. I was very lucky to have her as I was a solo traveler from the US. Touring with Pamela felt like I had a real friend in Paris. Enjoyed every moment together and getting around the city like a local, even using the metro. Highly recommend this tour and Pamela. I truly hope our paths cross again!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elizabeth for your review! I loved to meet you and have a "girls day"! I also hope our paths cross again ;) Until then... enjoy life! :D

Pamela IS the consummate tour guide. I really can't begin to tell you how amazing it was to see Paris with her. I had a limited amount of time and a few special requests. Pamela picked me up from the airport and we immediately jumped on a bus and entered the city. As soon as we hit the city limits my history lesson began, not only is Pamela knowledgeable but she's also passionate about her city. I'm thankful for every inch i was able to enjoy on my layover. I don't think anyone could've done it BETTER.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ohhh, Gudrun!!! Thank you so much for this review!!! I am glad all worked out as you wished and more! Paris and me will be waiting for you whenever you feel like visiting us again! :D

If I could give 6 stars I would! Pamela was better than we had hoped for from a tour guide. She came to our hotel and sat with us first to understand our objectives and timeframe for Paris.She then took us all over the city, and in doing so, provided tremendous history and insight to everything from architecture, to art, to myths and to the people of Paris. She brought us to the best viewing spots for all major attractions. There can be no better guide than Pamela.She completely customized our tour to us!

Pamela was energetic, young and very well versed on the history of her country and various sites (the Eiffel Tower, the Marais, the French Revolution, etc.). She was comfortable with dialoging back and forth about social and political issues affecting both our countries. She was attuned to our need to go a little more slowly and to sit, as in a park, for a few minutes here and there as we walked. We enjoyed her immensely and the fact that she inquired about our plans in Paris before designing our walk.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judy!!! So nice to hear from you!!! I hope that the rest of your visit was pleasant and you loved Paris. Thank you so much for your review!! All the best to both of you!

Pamela was an excellent guide and provided an outstanding tour. In a short 3 hour time frame, Pamela was able to conduct a tour that showed many of the famous landmarks in Paris. At the same time, the tour never felt rushed and was relaxed and enjoyable. Pamela was prepared with pictures, videos and a gave a very detailed historical perspective on every site that was visited. Stops included the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Luxor Obelisk, Arc de Triomphe and much more! Tour provided by walking, bus, & subway.

Our tour of Paris with Pamela was incredible! She showed us everything we wanted to see (Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Montmartre, Louvre) and even more than we could have imagined (walk along the Seine, Moulin Rouge, etc)! She was so knowledgable and knew Paris so well. She had planned SO well for our visit including which Metro stops were closed due to construction and which form of transportation would be best for us between attractions. She was absolutely THE BEST and a highlight for us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alison! What a storm surprised us, eh!!?? Thank you so much for your positive spirit and energy :D See you again soon and I hope!!! Regards to you all :)

We are 3 and, our tours (2 separate days), with Pamela were really wonderful. We explained in prior emails what we were looking for in a custom tour -- various sites/monuments but also food, wine and shopping and she delivered wonderfully. She was always on time and prepared. We were the ones always behind -- distracted by some beautiful site or shop and she was great to explain all and help us understand the history and significance. Highly recommend!!

Pamela worked with us before the trip to better understand what we hoped to see during our short stay. She then planned a whirlwind day of site seeing based on our interests. From meeting us at Gare du Nord to arranging for advance tickets to the Eiffel Tower, Pamela took care of us as though we were old friends. With every stop, she shared the history and interesting stories behind each site. Pamela was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and engaging with my 11-year old daughter. For Paris, Pamela is the best!

Pamela was awesome. We took a tour with another company and Pamela blew that tour guide away...she was super attentive to what we were looking to do, and we had 4 kids 15-9 in our group, which was a challenge in and of itself, but she commanded the kids' attention well. She also interspersed our tour with snacks (chocolate, cream puffs and wine (not for the kids :), which was awesome! Highly recommend Pamela as your tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Adam! Thank you so much for that lovely review... I am so glad you liked my tour, I loved to meet you and your family!

Fantastic and personalized tour. Pamela has a ton of knowledge and presents everything in a fun and exciting way. We learned some history of the Notre Dame and even more valuable, Pamela gave us many inside tips and ideas about what to see and do during our week in Paris. It was a perfect way to start our trip and get a real foundation for understanding Paris. Pamela kept our two young teenage girls interested in the four hour tour and also took us places we would not have otherwise found. A great day!

Pamela is a wonderful tour guide. She not only regaled us with interesting Parisian anecdotes (ones that were interesting to our entire family - two adults and two children -ages 11 and 9), she also helped us structure our four-day itinerary. Based on our general wish list, she provided recommendations on where and when to go. She also gave us tips on particular food/pastry shops to visit - ones that might not be in a tour book, but are well known to locals. In short, her guidance was invaluable.

Me, my husband and 2 daughters (ages 20 and 21) had a wonderful day exploring Notre Dame, Saint Chapelle and the small back streets of Paris with Pamela. Our tour with Pamela was by far our best day in Paris! She had a wealth of knowledge about Notre Dame and Paris. We would never have appreciated Notre Dame as much as we did without her expert guidance. Pamela's enthusiasm for Paris was contagious and we learned so much. I highly recommend a tour with Pamela.

Pamela customized our tour based on our wishes. Before the trip, she emailed us a detailed itinerary. She met us promptly at our hotel and was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited. Pam made us feel like we were friends rather than clients. When we expressed a desire to buy chocolate, she took us to a wonderful shop. She did not rush us through the tour, taking the time to explain the public transit so we could feel comfortable using it on our own. I highly recommend Pam for your customized tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leanne and Libby!!! It was a pleasure to show you my city and I am so glad you enjoyed the "chocolate experience" and all the walking we did to burn the calories!! :D Hope to see you back again in a couple of years Leanne, next time I'll make sure you taste the best hot chocolate ;) and I'll get more nice anecdotes ready for you! All the best, Pam

Wow...I can not say enough positive about Pamela! She was awesome! My mom was ill the morning of the trip and my daughter was upset. Pamela took control and helped everyone. My daughter had a blast spend some one on one time with her and then they grabbed mom and away they went for the rest of the day! She is fantastic with kids and with elderly! We have another day with her and can't wait to see the treasures and stories we will show us! Thank you so much!!!!!

My wife and I came to Paris for two days. We were lucky to have booked two tours with Pamela. She is more than just an excellent tour guide; she is a friend that you have in Paris. Besides her great personality, she speaks fluent English, she is very enthusiastic and best of all she is very knowledgeable about the history of France and the ancient buildings in Paris. We simply learnt from her in two tours than what we learned in school. We had a great and valuable time in Paris. Thank Pamela.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mohammad and Sukainah, Thank you so much for this wonderful review! It was wonderful to meet you and to show you Paris!!! Your Tuktuk idea was great as well... we are a good team! I hope to see you in Saudi Arabia soon! Take care and thank you very much again!!! :D

But she really orginazed my day very well and even walked me to the Metro and made sure I knew where I was going, I cldn't have asked for better weather or a better Guide. When you select her you get what your asking for, even More. I can't brag enough on how well she did. Thanks a million Pamela, you made me want to return!!!

We were on a cruise that made port in Le Havre and we took the train to Paris. We only had one afternoon to see as much of Paris as possible. This was our first time using ToursByLocals and we were VERY happy with our experience. Our afternoon with Pam was the highlight of our cruise. Simply put, Pam was the best guide we have encountered on any tour in any location. Period. Simply the best. We saw everything on our "wish list" We would highly recommend TBL and Pam!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bruce and Lisa, I am so happy you enjoyed your short visit to Paris. It was my pleasure to meet you and make sure you get to see all the wonderful Parisian highlights. I hope one day you get to return with more time so you get to experience the charm of our cafés, narrow old streets, bridges, and try our cheeses, wines and fresh bread. I'll be waiting for you! :)

I can't imagine visiting Montmartre without Pamela as our guide, it is so full of history and Pamela's knowledge of the area and ability to tell the stories of what took place absolutely made our trip. Montmartre has one of the best views of the city and Pamela pointed out all the places of interest from our vantage point, as we were leaving a man had overhead Pamela explaining the area to us and actually thanked her for the information and how much he enjoyed it! We didn't even realize he was listening!

Pamela was AMAZING! Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and incredible accommodating. Clearly, she loves what she does - and it shows! She got my elderly parents so excited about Paris that it was the first time in years they have not gotten tired and insisted on more walking. It was a day in Paris we'll never forget, all thanks to Pamela! (If you can book her, don't settle for less.)

An absolutely fantastic tour! Pamela is personable, easy to talk to, and tailored the tour to our needs. We did an all day tour of Paris - this was fairly rigorous for a 76 year old man with 2 knee replacements and back fusion, but we managed, and we learned so much while seeing all the sites we wanted to see. Pamela has an excellent knowledge of the subject matter, a bubbly personality, and we enjoyed learning about Paris and its colorful history! Pamela is a "star" among the travel guides!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment Nici!!! It was a pleasure to meet you and John and I hope to see you over here again soon so we'll see the other many more things that make Paris so special :D

Pamela B is the most fantastic Parisian guide that has ever been or will ever be. We feel like we have assimilated the Parisian culture by an extraordinary, compassionate, knowledgeable guide. I can only hope that anyone else with the least trepidation about visiting Paris is as fortunate as we in obtaining such a fantastic guide. Paris and Pamela are now on our annual European Octoberfest. To give Pamela only 5 stars is a grave injustice, she deserves 10+ stars !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
