Not bad not good. We had similar tours around Europe for 150 maximum 200 euros. This time we paid 500 which I think is way too much for a walk only. Guide was funny but smoking while making tour seems inappropriate for me, maybe for french is ok. Also he need to know geography more, one advice for the future - Baltic countries are not Russia
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. * I asked your permission before I started smoking. If my guests doesn't like I never smoke... * you made a last minute booking for 30-40 people and the cost of the tour marked on my page for 4 person 350 dollars, means 87,5 dollars per person 87,5 x 30 = 2625 dollars. You asked me a special price and I gave you only 600 Dollars. * I asked you what to see in Paris before we started and you mentioned that no public transport only walking, therefore we walked All the best

Cuneyt waited for us for over an hour at our hotel. When we finally arrived, we worked out what we wanted to see. As this was our first trip to Paris, he took us to the Eiffel Tower, taught us to use the Metro, and gave lots of advice about what we should do in the next few days. We had flown in on a red-eye, so we were tired way more quickly than he was! We learned a lot and it has made our trip more enjoyable. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you

Amazing guide. We had a fantastic time walking all over Paris. He was extremely accommodating and very knowledgeable. We would love to see him again one day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. Hope to receive you again in Paris

Cuneyt is wonderful. I had the Paris for Beginners tour on Sept. 15, 2018. While walking together, Cuneyt tell me a lot of history, culture and how the Parisian live in this most romantic City in the world. I travel solo but I feel like I was walking with a local friend. I highly recommend this tour for people who are visiting Paris with only one or two days. In the end of this tour, Paris is no longer a new place to me.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great to hear this Andy. It was wonderful for me being with a friend from China, my old place. Hope to receive you again in Paris.

Cuneyt is an extraordinary guide with a perfect English domain. We had enjoying the tour and the company. One more time using ToursByLocals has been the right thing to do. My wife and I are enchanted with the service and the reliability of the guides.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. I also enjoyed very much being with you. And congratulations for your 50th years of marriage... All the best
Susan JacksonUnited States
Cuneyt was remarkable! We certainly walked a ton but the education and sights of Paris were amazing! We got to see and learn much about the current culture as well as history of Paris through visitation of both landmarks and quaint sidestreet discussions. Outstanding tour by Cuneyt and can't wait to come back!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. Hope to rcv you again in Paris.

Although Cuneyt was pleasant and punctual, we didn't get much out of the tour. We didn't feel that he understood Jewish history in France.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. I was trying my best but this was the only what Paris provides... You have been at 2 memorials and Rue Rosier. Synagogs are closed. You also knew that I am not a licensed guide, therefore I am surprised but really sorry that you were not satisfied. All the best
Gary FortUnited States
Cuneyt was extremely well prepared and a joy to enjoy the sights of Paris with. I own Le Gourmet Connection and needed to understand the Paris food scene to search for new products to add to my business. He had researched the markets prior to my arrival and had specific recommendations as we toured. His general knowledge of Paris and it's history coupled with his knowledge of food and related products was extraordinary. When I return to Paris, I will certainly ask for Cuneyt as my guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Fort. It was very much enjoyable to tour with you. Even it was August & Sunday we managed :-) Thank you for your visit and hope to rcv you again in Paris. All the best

It really was such a day in Paris, both me and my sister were beyond tired from our flight the day before, but that didn't stop it from being a great day in Paris. We were shown a lot of things that we never would have found on our own, and became somewhat familiar with our surroundings so that using the metro alone became no problem the following day. We are glad we took this tour, and if we highly recommend it to anyone debating taking it! It was fun and we would totally do it again given the chance!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice comments. I am happy to see you girls are becoming parisiens. Enjoy the rest of the holiday.
Mark GoetzUnited States
Cuneyt was very generous and flexible. He was prepared to give us a tour of "His Paris" but adapted to our needs for a "Paris Highlights" based on our conversation. He really knows Paris and gave us a day that will never be forgotten.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind comments. I was going to show you more but the time was limited with you. Hope to rcv you again in Paris.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the stars.. I enjoyed very much being with your parents... They are lovely people..
Christopher ClappUnited States
This was the best possible tour for us. My 16 year old daughter's first time to Paris and a dad who had not been to city in 30 years. Our guide tailored our day to us, perfectly blending well known must see sites from the best vantage points with some cool off the beaten path Paris one of a kind experiences. Cuneyt made sure we experienced the full range of food from Parisian breakfast, drinks at famous cafe, a lite lunch, ice cream, and an an amazing dinner at the Bisto D'Henri. Best 12.5 km walked ever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you family Clapp it was nice to know you and it was great to make Martha happy during her first trip to Paris. She now knows what to ask her future boyfriend to be with him :-) Place Furstenberg ! Enjoy the rest of your trip.
Cüneyt was amazing. He went above and beyong and we really enjoyed our tour. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Monique.. It was also so good to be with you and your family... Sorry for your son as we couldn't find a right place to see the football
James SolomonUnited States
Cuneyt was the perfect guide. He is extremely intelligent, cultured, articulate, fascinating and personable. What we covered in one day would have taken us at least a week to discover on our own and he tailored our tour to suit our needs (including making reservations for us at a superb French restaurant he knew). This remarkable man made our first trip to Paris very remarkable!! Thank to our guide and to ToursbyLocals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. It was great walking with you and showing you my Paris. Let's do it again soon..

Great tour for first time Paris traveller -the guide was knowledgeable and passionate. We got great understanding of old and new Paris its culture -history and food -will certainly do another tour. Got my exercise in as well i think we walked about 18,000 steps. Traveled on bus and metro and did a bit of shopping -loved this fully-thank you for making this memorable Cüneyt. I think only a local can give you a great appreciation of thier city
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :-) 18958 steps... I told you in the beginning that you will sleep well at night... It was so enjoyable for me to be with you and show you my city. We saw only ¼ of the city but I am sure that you will like to see more next time.. Thank you for your nice words. I always try to give my best service.. Enjoy the rest of the trip...
Susanne FinchUnited States
We had an amazing experience with Cüneyt. While he perceptively attuned to what we were interested in he also brought unique facts and passion to our tour. The experience with Cüneyt allowed Paris of the past to come alive alongside Paris of the moment.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susanne & Sandra it was really a enjoyable day for me. When people enjoys "my Paris" I feel better. Now I have 2 Wonderfull friends just at the other side of the world. I have a good reason to travel. Thank you for being with me...
Joanna ManningUnited States
We had a fantastic day with Cuneyt. Although the weather was dismal (cold, raining and snowing,) we had a fun day with him. He showed us places in Paris we would never have seen on our own. Cuneyt took into account the desires of all four of our children and the limited mobility of my husband to maximize what we could see and experience. His English is great, his stories entertaining and his concern for our overall enjoyment of Paris exceptional. I highly recommend Cuneyt for a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. I also enjoyed very much being with all of you and especially with your lovely kids... I will keep the picture which Camille (10) made for me with all our nice memories in Paris.
Paul CoonsUnited States
This is probably the best money that we spent on our vacation. Not only was our guide incredibly informative, but gave us a perspective of the city we couldn't have had without him. He was punctual on arrival and followed our request to the T. The information that he gave us and the sites that we took in or parts of Paris we would never see. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is going to Paris for the first time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, Thank you very much dor your comments and stars. Please give my regards to your family members and also pls note that I hope to see you again in France maybe in Paris or somewhere else... All the best Cuneyt A.
