Great tour, great pace. Obliged with small changes to itinerary with regards time at stops. Friendly guide, very knowledgeable and gave explanations and information above and beyond the scope of the tour. Couldn't recommend Alain enough. Regards Clinton

This was a good tour but you must consider the Paris traffic .... Alain did a great job navigating it but it does eat into your time. Again his information about the city and the sites are very interesting. Would have enjoyed more time with him at the Louvre.... but you will never have enough time in one day.

Alain did a fantastic job as our guide. For those not sure about the cost versus the benefits I will tell you it was money well spent. My husband, son and his girlfriend found him knowledgeable with many unique and hidden gems of knowledge. If you are a history buff you will not be disappointed. He showed flexibility and provided advice about things u related to the tour. I would highly recommend him and would book him for future visits - Coretha

Alain is very knowledgeable and has a wealth of information about the history of Normandy. This tour could be improved by installing a speaker in the vehicle as it was very hard to hear Alain if you are in the far back of the vehicle.
Alain was brilliant! So many interesting facts and so knowledgeable. We had an excellent tour of Versailles perfectly organized by Alain for our family of three We highly recommend.

Paris is a beautiful city. Alain made it come alive over three very full days of custom touring.He is able to explain and integrate history art and culture. We left with some incredible memories and a true appreciation for what the city has to offer. Many thanks for a wonderful tour Alain!
Diane CalderUnited States
Alain was wonderful. We had a just arrived arrived in Paris a short time before our tour and he was very kind and courteous knowing we were running a bit late. His tour of the Latin Quarter was terrific due to his knowledge of French history as well as his passion for the city. Our stay in Paris was made even better because of the tour we had with Alain.

Perfect way to experience both Versailles and Giverny
Alan S.United States
Outstanding, knowledgeable, and highly experienced guide. We arrived Paris on the hottest day on record. Alain recommended that we start earlier in the day to limit our exposure to the the heat. Alain provided expert commentary about the history of France, the architecture of Paris, and general information on French culture and educational system. Our tour group consisted of 2 grandparents, parents and 7 th graders. Each of us benefited for the tour. Highly recommend

Our family had a fantastic day touring Normandy with Alain! He was excellent at sharing his knowledge of France history, Paris history, WWI, WWII, and the finer points about what can be seen at Normandy. As an experienced tour guide, he was very adept at communicating his in-depth knowledge of what transpired on D-Day. Although this was just a day trip, he ensured we saw and understood the highlights in Normandy. He has an excellent ability to challenge one's thinking! Depth & breadth of knowledge ++++++!

Alain was fantastic and knowledgeable not only about Champagne, but Paris and France. I highly recommend him.
Sam BriceUnited States
We really enjoyed our 3 days with Alain. His overall knowledge of the entire history of France , England (entire world) is amazing and really helped to tie our understanding of the places / events we visited, together. I would definitely use Alain again in the future and highly recommend him. He provided a very comfortable van for our travels and cleaned it immaculately every evening.
Julie MaltzmanUnited States
We had a wonderful 3 day trip to Normandy with Alain! Fantastic itinerary, a very comfortable ride in his large air-conditioned van, a great pace of travel. Alain is very knowledgable about art, history, architecture, politics, religion. He weaves in stories from history to explain the resultant art/architecture, styles, origin of words, etc. His English is perfect and his manner respectful. Thank you Alain.
Marian BrancaccioUnited States
Amazing tour of the immense and incredible Versailles gardens! Alain was a charming guide who led us through the Versailles gardens and shared a wealth of interesting information about them, all during the Paris heat wave while enduring temperatures well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. He was flexible and patient, and we greatly appreciated his interest in customizing the tour for us. He had a good sense of humor, too, and we thoroughly enjoyed the interesting tour! Very pleased to very highly recommend!
Marian BrancaccioUnited States
Alain was an exceptional tour guide who was delightful and engaging, and held our attention with his vast knowledge of history, art and architecture during an amazing tour of the Versailles palace. We were a party of three adults and three teens, and we all thoroughly enjoyed having him lead us on a very special tour of Versailles. His English is outstanding, and we had no problem understanding him. We highly recommend him, and can't wait to join him again for another tour! Thank you and merci!
Terry ReevesUnited States
Alain is a first rate guide. Knows his stuff and so much more. We learned about the MONA LISA on the way to Normandy! Enjoyed our trip, learned a lot. Just the right amount of touring to the best places for the time we had. Lovely, comfortable, air conditioned van. Safe driver, too. Nice lunch place. I recommend him without reservations!

A quick view of Paris. We came for the day from London on the train. Were disappointed that we were not able to visit the Lourve, but Alain made up for that with stories and information that made us want to return. x We saw all the sites and enjoyed the food too. Hope to go with Alain again in the fall.
Bradley CoatesUnited States
Alain did a fantastic job with my family of 6. His knowledge of the history and ability to explain added an additional element to the entire trip. It was very enjoyable to get to know him and relax on the trip as he took care of all details.
Charles BeckmanUnited States
Alain was on time and was very professional and very knowledgeable of the sites we visited. We had a very pleasant and informative day with him. His english was excellent and he kept up engaged as we made our way to the sites on our full day excursion. If we get the opportunity we would not hesitate to use his services and the services of Tours by Locals in the future.

Alain is a walking encyclopedia! We have never met anyone with such knowledge of history and the arts! He was very courteous and a pleasure to spend the day with. With him, we were able to see so much and he explained everything in the greatest detail. We had a lovely lunch in Montmartre, and we were able to see budding new artists at work. During lunch, he talked with us about French culture and gave us much insight into his beloved country. It was truly a day to remember! Thank you, Alain
