We had an amazing tour with David! He customized the tour to our interests and the main attractions in Paris. David has an enormous amount of knowledge, providing historical background as well as interesting facts throughout the day. As it was a walking tour, he was always careful to ask if the children needed a break. We learned so much about the history of Paris (plus some fun facts), enjoyed a delicious lunch of crepes, and shopped amongst local aspiring artists.

David is very personable with excellent command of the English language. He arrived early, made sure he introduced himself to the group (we had 7). He made sure to verify what we wanted to see before we started the tour. He is very knowledgeable about Paris and its history. He kept his explanations succinct to hold our attention. I would highly recommend David's tour.

David was wonderful!!! I would absolutely do another tour with him! My husband & I traveled over from the U.S. with our children (ages 19 & 22) to tour Paris. David mapped out a full day tour that included all the high points while also working in any special requests we had. David was EXTREMELY kind and VERY knowledgeable about the history and sights of Paris, which provided wonderful color and detail to our tour. His English is excellent so he was very easy for us to understand. Just fantastic!

All the reviews about David are correct. David was great and we absolutely loved his tour. If you want to see the other sites off the beaten track David is the guide to make it happen. We were able to see all the main sites but also see the lesser known sites that I never even knew existed. We had 3 kids and a 2 seniors in our group and David was able to handle our group perfectly. He was also checking to make sure no one got left behind which was great. Book your tour with David you won't regret it.

We did two half day tours with David . I went with him based on ratings on the website and I am glad I did. I had made the booking many months in advance and had multiple interactions over email with him. He is very prompt with responding and was helpful in guiding an itinerary which took our wishes into consideration. My son is 8 yrs old and the pace of the tour was perfect for him too. David's way of conducting the tour made it interesting for the kids too and he was wonderful with them . Great guy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I know! I love this area. Most people however want to do it in 90 minutes as they have little time in Paris. I have to pack a lot in this little time. I am sorry you felt rushed.

We had a satisfactory tour with David but were disappointed after so many other great ToursbyLocals guides. This was especially true as his tour was listed as a "Best Seller". He walked by himself, looked at his phone constantly and seemed bored. He was the slowest guide to respond to emails through the company before the trip. The information seemed rote and canned. It was informative though and we covered many interesting areas.

We were so lucky to have David as our guide. A three hour tour was cut short to 2 hours due to a flight delay but he somehow managed to bring us to many attractions. It was a whirlwind activity and felt like we did the impossible. To be able to visit those places in a short time, we used the train and bus. Thank you David for being so helpful and accommodating. We'd love to spend more time in Paris and would definitely book w/ you in the future. You rock!!!

Touring with David, in Paris was the best decision I have ever made. This was not my first trip to Paris. In the previous trips, I made the mistake of taking a tour bus (day tour) where they will only show you the highlights. Thanks to David, I got to see the areas of Paris that are more frequently visited by local Parisians than tourists. Even for picture taking, he took me to areas less visited by tourists where I can still take photos of beautiful Paris landmarks. Hope to see him again for more!

David was absolutely the best guide to show my mom and I around Paris on our full day tour. He made sure to fit in everything we wanted to do, and also took us to some of his favorite places. It was incredibly fun to explore Paris with David as he educated, and showed us the beautiful city. Our full day tour was one of our favorite days on our trip in Europe as we got to fully see Paris. I would 100% take another tour with David on my next trip in Paris.

I was running late for our tour and he didn't mind waiting and even offered to extend the tour by the amount of time I have lost by being late.

He knows the city well and loves to talk about it. He speaks flawless English and understands that travelers may need to be helped with transportation. He met us at our hotel and taught us how to use the metro. I highly recommend David and suggest you book him early in your visit to Paris.

David was a great tour guide. He added a lot of information about the city of Paris as we went from shop to shop. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. There is a lot of walking. You might want to take the bus towards the end of the tour, if possible. Also, during the summer, many shops may be closed due to vacation. It was a great tour for our teenage kids who enjoyed trekking to each of the macaron shops.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!

David is a great guide. We enjoyed the pace of the tour with our group ranging in age from 8-70. We saw so many of the important landmarks and listened to great info about the history. We saw places in Paris we never would have found on our own. Great guy, great day.

He was a very likeable young man with a fair general knowledge of the area. However, he did not come with the enthusiasm we have experienced with other Tours by Locals guides. During the tour we passed another small tour where the guide was most inspiring. We were hoping for more Jewish history of the Marais area. Some of the information given was also incorrect. Fortunately we checked with the local orthodox synagogue. There is no eruv anywhere in Paris!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Naomi. I am sorry not to have been a more entertaining guide. I chose a more respectful approach, especially when dealing with such grave issues as the Jewish history of Paris. Due to your group's appetite for knowledge, I had to tell my stories in a confused order and I appologize for this. As for the ervu, I prepared this tour years ago with jewish friend of mine, now in his 70s, who has lived in the Marais for most of his life. He's the one who explained the ervu to me, the very ones I showed you.

David made this a memorable day for us. Very knowledgeable but also well targeted for both me and my 14 year old son. It was great to go to some less touristy areas and to put some of the history and design of the city into context. David shared some of his favourite parts of the city, including the best macarons. I liked the fact we had a whole day as it allowed a kind of narrative. Also his English is outstanding. Great guide.

We had a wonderful informative tour. The pastry shops we went to were wonderful. Plus David took us to see some of the sights including the Luxembourg garden which we did not see on our group tour. David was kind enough to buy two different pastries for our grandchildren. We said we wanted to see Notre Dame that day so he left us there so we could go inside. I would definitely recommend this tour.

David is a skilled guide. He provided a perfect tour with a complete overview of the main sites in Paris. We transitioned easily from site to site and to various ethnic areas all the while providing detailed background information. We are well traveled - but had never been to Paris and this was a superb way to be introduced to the city - particularly since we were only there for 2 days. All along the route he pointed out items of interest. We were lucky to spend our day with him. He is kind and attentive.

We had a great tour with David. He had the difficult task of preparing a tour for a group containing one person who had been to Paris four times, one who had visited twice and one who was new to the city. He showed us many new things and gave us interesting stories and insights into classic sites. He was friendly, engaging and interacted very well with our daughter. This is a much better way to see the city than the typical bus tour. We would definitely book a tour with David again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot! David

David guided us on two full day Paris tours. He is extremely knowledgeable with a wonderful personality. We toured the main attractions as well as local sites which made us feel more like Parisians than tourists. He is very efficient, saving time by taking subways whenever possible. We never felt rushed and his knowledge of Paris made the tour feel very personal. I would highly recommend David to anyone wanting to tour Paris.

Guide knowledgeable but not very professional or friendly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I completely agree. As I anticipated, your tour was not a good idea. I explained your travel agent that I already had two tours that day, that I would be too tired to do a third one, and that I will refuse that booking. She insisted so much that I accepted. I shouldn't have. I was just too exhausted.

I'm writing to officially thank David for his excellent three-hour tour, which was very informative. As requested, he showed us diverse sections of 'Le Marais' and gave interesting commentaries and explanations to our questions. David was a very amiable and friendly guide. He certainly deserves a 5 out of 5 rating!
