Great tour thank you Alexandre! We saw so many interesting parts of Paris little streets and points of interest that were off the typical tourist hot spots. He captivated us all with his fascinating and informative tour. We absolutely were blown away by Saint Chappelle thank you for your suggestion and arranging all! Alexandre catered to our family with teen, walking tour expertly we were informed, enlightened and thoroughly engaged. Brilliant guide and tour thank you for some wonderful Paris memories
We had a great tour to Montmarte walking with Alexandre and finding all these points of interest and history. Was the perfect afternoon in Paris.
Alexandre was the perfect guide for our trip to the Louvre, we were captivated by his explanations and information. He has so much knowledge and imparted all with such an entertaining way just so fascinating. My 14 year old son as were we were so engaged in the tour we will come away with wonderful memories of the exquisite art at the Louvre.

Alexandre was great. He explained all of the history and helped us with interpreting some of the pieces in the Louvre. He showed us the highlights and when our tour was over showed us where to find other items of interest that we requested. I cannot recommend him high enough. The scale is 1 to 5 and he is a 6!! I will definitely contact him next time I am in Paris. Thank you so much!!!

Alexandre, did an amazing job in our two hours-tour of the Louvre! He was personable, easy to communicate with and flexible with us ahead of the tour. But his solid knowledge of the subject and his effectiveness in presenting to us the main art pieces was really fascinating!!! Also my 14 years old son, who was tired and not particularly excited about going to any museum, did enjoy it. We really look forward to hire Alexandre again next time we pass by Paris!
This was the 3rd of 3 tours we arranged with Alexandre. All were outstanding. This walking tour took us to several of Paris' most famous sights. No doubt the highlights were seeing the recently destroyed Notre Dame up close and, maybe the best of all, a trip inside the breathtaking Sainte-Chapelle. Alex's vast knowledge of the history behind each landmark made this tour unforgettable. Alexandre is personable and extremely knowledgeable. We recommend him strongly to 1st time & experienced Paris visitors.
This was the 2nd of 3 tours we arranged with Alexandre. All were outstanding. We built a custom bike tour that included Père Lachaise (amazing!) and the wonderful pedestrian path on La Seine near Notre Dame. I can't think of a better way for a family to truly experience Paris than on a cruiser bike joining the tens of thousands of cyclists & mopeds making their way around Paris. Alexandre is personable and extremely knowledgeable. We recommend him strongly to 1st time & experienced Paris visitors.
This was the 1st of 3 tours we arranged with Alexandre. All were outstanding. For our family, this private van tour was our introduction to Paris on our 1st full day. Alexandre built a custom tour to show us many of the city's most famous highlights over a multi-hour van tour. As we discovered, Alex provided extensive "behind-the-scenes" detail on each site, which was fascinating. Alexandre is personable and extremely knowledgeable. We recommend him strongly to 1st time & experienced visitors to Paris.

Alexandre was a terrific guide! Not only was he fun and knowledgeable, but he adapted very well to our sudden need for a wheelchair, and was able to quickly adapt the tour. He was kind and helpful throughout.
Kathryn BrakemeierUnited States
Alexandre was the perfect guide for our family. I wasn't sure what I was looking for when I began searching options for our trip. After answering a few questions, we booked Alexandre. I am so glad I did!! He kept my teen girls engaged, and Alexandre had a great knowledge of the Louvre. It was all in the details. He knew small details which made our visit memorable even for myself who had visited the Louvre several times. Thank you Alexandre! There is no doubt we will book with him in future.

Alexandre is amazing! We absolutely loved our tour of the Louvre. Despite the very busy day, we were able to take in large portions of the museum in a thoughtful well-planned manner, never feeling rushed or crowded. Alexandre is engaging and able to really draw on what interests the group. Can't say enough good things about our time with him. Just wish we would have been able to take advantage of his other tour opportunities as well.

Alexandre was very knowledgeable, passionate about art and extremely accommodating to our mobility issues. Our tour of the Louvre covered all of the high points and gave us a wealth of information about the artists and their works. Despite our physical limitations, we felt that we got to experience the museum and create a lasting memory of Paris.

Alexandre is a great guide and very accommodating. We have only used Toursbylocal twice. Once in New York City. We had Bill G. He too is a great guide. So no doubt we will continue to go with Toursbylocals

Alex was great we had a group of 12, 8 kids and 4 adults he made our day fantastic!!!! He was honest, warm, engaging and so informative!!!! We would recommend him whole heartedly and wished we could have taken him on our next days adventure.
Sharon CoburnUnited States
Alexandre was a great tour guide. He knows his stuff!! Even works at the Louvre when not giving guides. If you have a chance to use him as your guide, I would highly recommend him. He knows his stuff and his art!

Alex was nothing short of the highlight of our entire vacation! He was a spectacular tour guide and I personally felt privileged to spend 3 hours learning from him about the Louvre. He walked around that awe-inspiring building with the maximum confidence and his knowledge of the Louvre is second to no one. His description of the sculptures/paintings/etc gave us a new-found appreciation for the art and let us see it in a new light. His passion rekindled my own. Highly Recommended! Thank you, Alex!!
Tom GrahamUnited States
Our tour with Alexandre could not have been better. Very informative and allowed us ample time to spend at the exhibits of most interest to us. I highly recommend him as a Louvre guide.

Lunch in the Marais district (after a ride on the metro) with Alexandre turned into a fabulous "memory moment!" We then walked to Notre Dame through back streets. Once again something we had not done on previous visits. Now we were "educated " on some aspects we had never thought about before.we were walking by the RENOVATION where 2 days later was the cause of the fire. Then on to the church itself! WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE—we are sorry that it will be a long time before people will be able to see it!
Edwina ComisoUnited States
Passionate is how to explain Alexandre's feelings about the Louvre! Passion that was contagious! Alexandre guided us through the maze of art and crowds effortlessly! Before seeing the Mona Lisa he gave us a mini lesson on just how Di Vince's painting stile evolved! Onward to WINGED VICTORY and VENUS de MILO. Again background information that made all of this come alive. After these highlights we explored places that we never had time to see on previous visits in the past. THANK YOU and we shall be back!
Edwina ComisoUnited States
PAST and PRESENT came alive with Alexandre! We walked through covered passageways that are the true past of Paris! Now being revamped one can still feel what it must have been like those many years ago. We were privileged to also see and sample from Some of the best bakeries in Paris. Courtyards and alleyways, churches and artists at work (yes we each came home with an original) were enjoyed by all 4 of us. Trust Alexandre to always go above and beyond!!
Edwina ComisoUnited States
An UNFORGETTABLE Experience! Thank you Alexandre for making this such a wonderful experience! Once again you managed to show us a side of Versailles that only a "local" would know about! Alexandre grew up on the lands of Versailles so one can imagine his passion for this place. It was his suggestion ,after our tour of the inside of the Chateau, to see the rest of the gardens riding golf carts! He had suggested we tour on a Tuesday, that way we could enjoy the dancing fountains. AGAIN A 5+ star tour!
Edwina ComisoUnited States
Exceptional guide and experience Spent 3 days with Alexandre. This was 1 of 5 tours . Wish we had more days to explore with him! His knowledge of,and his love for, "his city" is unmistakable! We took a 5 hour car tour (on our first day) so we get an overall view of the city . We exited the van to covered passage ways and many other highlights . We have been to Paris many times but with Alex we had an IN-DEPTH view. He really brought historical people and events to life. THANK YOU ALEXANDRE!!!

Alexandre provided an amazing tour that allowed us to discover some hidden gems in Paris. His knowledge and friendliness were such a delight. Our tour with him was the absolute highlight of our trip to Paris. We had a great time and highly recommend a tour with him.

Was 2nd tour with Alex (Jan 2nd - entire family). (Also hired Alex in Sept w/ 1 son/friends for Louvre tour.) He met us at 2:30 pm at metro and took us all around the Marais to hidden places, then a fun wine/cheese dinner before heading to Louvre for 3 hour evening tour. We spent 7 1/2 hours with Alex and loved it! SO fun! He's a great tour guide, knows so much history, and charming and easy to spend time with. My 3 sons (16, 21 and 25) and my husband also loved this fascinating 2-part tour!
Thomas McCarthyUnited States
Alexandre is awesome. He was like one of the family. There were eight in our group and each of us felt like we were getting one on one attention. His knowledge of Paris and the sites ensured we saw everything we wanted to in the short time we were there. Our expectations were far exceeded.
