Celia is so precious. Great personality. Superior knowledge. She bent over backward to accommodate our every wish and went beyond our expectations (which are high). Highly recommend. ❤️

A perfect day in Paris - thank you Celia. Despite the French National strikes, Celia delivered a seamless, customised and wonderful tour which my 12 year old son, my mother-in-law (72 years old) and myself and husband absolutely loved. Something for everyone. This is the best way to see Paris and it was comfortable, warm, well-paced, and ran exactly as we had asked it to. We appreciated Celia's extensive knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail, accompanied by her excellent driver. Thanks Celia!

Celia was very knowledgeable and well-spoken. She navigated us through a very crowded Louvre Museum, enabling us to see most of the highlights. She also recommended other interesting portions of the museum we could visit after on our own. We asked about the River Cruise and she provided information and directions. She was so good that we were hoping to book her for additional tours while we were there, but she was already booked. I'm not surprised. Thanks, Celia, for an enjoyable experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michele for your nice review.

We were a family group of 9 women of all ages from children to adults. Celia was knowledgeable, fun, warm and very accommodating to our interests and pace. She guided us for two days, both on a city tour in Paris and at Versailles. I would highly recommend her. PS -- she knows where all of the clean and uncrowded bathrooms are, too!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Karen! Your family is fun. Tell Margot that I miss her already!

Celia guided us on a full day tour in beautiful Paris. This was our 5th visit to the city of lights. She took us through a tunnel that lead to the Arc de Triomphe. There she gave us details and pointed out interesting points about the history. Celia then took us by the underground to the famous historic Opera Garnier. She was very knowledgeable and had interesting comments about what we saw. Our day with Celia was so enjoyable and fun. I highly recommend her for your next Parisian visit

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeannette for your review. It was a challenging work to guide someone whom had visited Paris 4 times already. Besides you had a Paris highlights tour the day before my tour. I am glad that you enjoyed the tour with me. I had a good time too with you and I enjoyed the jokes of George and discussing historic stories with him. Have a nice cruise and seeing you another time! Celia

We really enjoyed our tour with Cecil. She showed us so much of Paris in our 6 hour tour. It was a rainy day so it was perfect to have a driver take us all around. Paris is a beautiful city with lots to do, so if you only have a short visit Cecil is very knowledgeable and friendly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeanne. Enjoy the ladies day today. The weather is with you!

Celia is fantastic! She took my parents (seniors) on a 3 hour VIP private van tour of Paris and guided in Cantonese. She was very accommodating to them, including guiding mostly from the private van due to wheelchair accessibility issues. Her driver is professional and amazingly, was able to park the van in front of most top paris sites so my parents could easily see the sites! Celia is quick to respond to emails & requests, and very friendly. Her 3 hour tour of Paris was the highlight of our trip! Thanks

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kandra. Your father is real interested in the stories. I am so happy that I can enlighten their trip. Thank you for selecting me as their guide.

We spent a wonderful day with Celia ...and William our driver. Besides seeing the all important sites - Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe , Champs-Élysée, Place de la Concorde and the Louvre, in approx. 7 hours we learned so much about each of these landmarks, Paris's history, people, cultures and economics. And had a fabulous lunch! I highly recommend Celia !!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nancy for your review. For one day Eurostar stay travellers, you were all in great shape. We had a good time together!

We had amazing time with Celia exploring Louvre yesterday. We were lucky to see Mona Lisa with almost no wait at all, thanks to Celia. She was very knowledgeable, patient and was able to answer all our questions. We definitely saw and learned so much more than we would have otherwise. Definite worth it! Thank you very much, Celia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Natasha. You are my lucky star, no need to wait with you anywhere! Have a nice stay in Paris.

Celia provided an excellent tour and it beat our expectations. We communicated before hand and met us on time. I highly recommend a private tour by a good guide to really utilize your time at the louvre. It is such a large place but Celia had a perfect tour planned for our first time. Again, we highly recommend the company and especially Celia for your next tour in Paris. Merci beaucoup!

Tours by Locals was great to work with when we had a canceled flight...they quickly worked with us to reschedule our much-anticipated Louvre tour on another date!! And Celia, our guide, was VERY accommodating when we were late for our meeting time by adjusting our itinerary to see as much of the Louvre as we could in the time we had there! Thanks Celia for making the Louvre come to life for us!! Merci!!

We would give Celia 5 out of 5 stars for our second day of touring with her. She made sure that I had a place to use my cane chair each time we stopped in our tour of Versailles. Then she made our lunch reservations and accommodated our desire to be dropped off at a shopping area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, Congratulations for the US soceer team. You beat us! I am thinking of your grand daughter when I watched the game. Hope to see her one day playing in the soceer field of the world championship.

Celia was outstanding! Not only was she extremely knowledge about Paris and its important landmarks, she was extremely helpful in making a full day with five adults and a six year old happen. She assisted us including a Michelin rated restaurant and a private boat tour on the Seine during the tour. I recommend her unequivocally.

Celia was a fantastic guide. We had a few ideas of what sights we wanted to see, this being our first visit to Paris, but Celia took us to so many different neighborhoods that we would have never seen on our own. She provided history and interesting fun facts during the tour. It was like visiting a friend who was showing us around her city. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Le Ewen! I like Paris and I would like to share it with my customers. You need to come back to Paris.

Celia is top notch. We have been all over the word and can say she will provide you with a wonderful trip to Versailles. From the pickup at our door from her and the driver William through our post trip things we wanted to do and have William come back and bring back to Paris was so thoughtful. Celia also made sure we could hear her at all time because she had headsets for all four of us. Consider this a tour with the right person.

Great tour!!!! Celia was right on time and knew her way around Paris with no problems. She taught us how to be safe while traveling on subway and how it works. She took us to Montmartre outside of Paris and showed us around it was my favorite part. We also ate at an incredible local restaurant. We finished the day by the Eiffel Tower where she took us after my daughter showed her a picture she saw from a specific location she wanted and ceila knew exactly where it was. Book with her!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you my lovely ladies! It is a must to leave your pretty daughters an unforgettable time in Paris!

Celia was a wonderful tour guide for the Louvre. She was easily able to handle our large group ranging in age from 9 to 70 years old. She provided a lot of detail about the history of the Louvre as well as many works of art. The tour was a good introduction to the museum and helps prepare you for future trips but it is limited to highlights to cover in just two hours. Of course I think our group slowed her down but she could see we were still jet lagged and modified the tour for us. Thank you Celia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Have a pleasant stay in Paris!

Celia's tour was very interesting and informative. She tailored the tour and her comments to our 14 yr old grandson as requested. We were all fully engaged for the entire tour. I recommend her highly both for her depth of knowledge and her lovely personality. I thought she was exceptional especially for a teenager. Thank you for an amazing visit of the Louvre.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tracee for you review. Your grandson is well brought up, easygoing and curious. He is my perfect audience. Thank you for taking the tour with me!

We very much enjoyed our tour of Versailles with Celia. She clearly knows that area and the history very well, and we all learned so much. She also spoke clearly, was easy to understand and a pleasure to be with. Had we visited the site on our own, we would not have gotten nearly as much out of our visit. Visiting Versailles was important to me, and I'm glad we had Celia as our guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ellen for your review. Your twin daughters are lovely and easy going. I am still thinking of Grace and Bubble in the shopping mall...

Our tour with Celia was fabulous! She set up an easy to find spot to meet and we started with a tour at the Louvre. The museum is so large it is intimidating but Celia knew where to go ( and routes that were less crowded). Her history lesson of the building and of many statues and paintings helped us both to really appreciate the works. We also visited Sainte Chapelle - a site we were unaware of but one that became a favorite. We look forward to future tours with Celia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cynthia for your review. I am pleased that you like the tour. There are still a lot of things that I want to show you. Come back soon!
