Anne is simply delightful. Very well-educated, elegant, kind, accommodating. I cannot say enough nice things about her. My husband and I spent the day with her on a "shopping tour" and she showed us so many wonderful places with historical information about the areas we were in. It was our best day in Paris every. I highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That is a glowing review! Thank you so much, dear Layne. I wish we were able to visit all the stores on you list (for your next trip?). Hope to see you again, it was a great day!

We loved having Anne as a tour guide for Paris. She was so considerate of the fact that we had a 6 month old with us and still found time to show us everything we wanted. I would highly recommend Anne. She is very knowledge, patient and flexible!

Anne is an exceptional tour guide. We asked for a customized 'local Parisienne' experience and she delivered a wonderful tour with a local lunch that was our best in Paris. She knows the city, it's history, and culture. I HIGHLY recommend Anne!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, dear Bambi, for this glowing review! I wish we were able to spend more time together. Showing you around was like visiting the city with my friends from Burgundy! I do hope our paths will cross again as I still have a lot to show you around.

Anne C. was terrific. We picked her based on the reviews that we had read from other travelers and they were spot on. She was pleasant, knew her stuff, and was receptive to our needs. The other bonus is that she answered questions online, discussed other aspects of Paris, and addressed some specifics regarding side trips that we did on other days and knew would not be covered during out particular tour. Our entire family had a great time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, dear Ernie, for these very kind words! I also enjoyed showing you around and you were a lovely family to tour with. I hope you had a great time at the wedding in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, beautiful location, and beautiful weather! Give my warmest regards to everybody -:)

Anne is a rare find. My son and I only had a day in Paris, and wanted to make the most of it. We saw more with Anne in 7 hours than we could have seen on our won in a week. She has a wonderful command of French and Parisian and worked hard to make our trip very special. The particular attention she paid to my son, adjusting for his energy level and interest throughout the day was simply amazing. Anne loves her city and her work, and it shows in every part of her tours. Book her without hesitation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wesley, thank you so much! Those are very kind words and I too had a very enjoyable day with both of you. I hope your younger son will also ask to come and visit Paris, so our paths will cross again -:)

I had booked Anne C for myself personally and my family for the Full Day Paris Tour with Anne C for May 17, 2018. We were a party of 5. She was so friendly and knowledgeable. All 5 of us enjoyed our Tour and her company. We felt like we made a new friend. We also tried a restaurant she recommend to us and loved it so much we went back twice. It was located just around the corner from our hotel. It was a wonderful, enjoyable day which we will never forget. Thank you Anne C.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorie, thank you so much for your very kind words! It was a treat for me to show you around as you were a very dynamic and enthusiastic party.

Anne gave us the best day of our 5 day Paris stay-arrived promptly and with a smile-treated my 22 yr old daughter like her own-walked over 20,000 steps on our way through Montmartre,sacre couer,Latin quarters after exploring the inside of the opera house;seeing not only the Chagall ceiling but the start of a rehearsal..we experienced the metro and a bus...saw the most important masterpieces at the louvre-had time for a quick lunch-A perfect day-A perfect guide...we loved her!Thank you Anne!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robin, thank you so much for such a glowing review! Did we really walked over 20,000 steps? Getting around with you and Victoria was like touring with my daughter's friends and family. The visit to the Opera House was, for me, the icing on the cake, especially with the start of the rehearsal. So many memories! I hope you had a nice and safe trip back home and I wish Victoria all the best for her future endeavors -:)

What a great day in Paris with Anne! Even though we had just arrived after a long-overnight flight, Anne got us going on a walking tour which made us forget our fatigue. We loved taking the local transportation and buying macarons at her favorite spot as well as lunch at a local, non-tourist spot. Our group of four felt prepared to venture out on our own the next day after Anne gave us suggestions for places to see and how to get there. We now feel we have a friend in Paris! Thank you Anne.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sally, thank you so much for you very generous words! Exploring the city with you and your party was a pleasure. I was also very happy to share with you my tips and recommendations so you could feel like true Parisians, even for your short stay. I hope you'll come back some time, and that we'll meet again.

I wish I could give Anne more than 5 stars because she deserves it. We instantly bonded and became our best friend. Such a kind soul and her knowledge of everything Parisian will leave you spellbound. We got a chance to see everything we wanted to see in a short amount of time. She knew the short cuts and work arounds to everything. We even had a little problem at the train station upon departure and she stayed right there with us the entire time. Felt like we were saying goodbye to a family member.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear friends, thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was lovely touring Paris with such cheerful and happy people as you. I greatly admire how you adapted to the cold and windy Parisian weather, quite different from sunny Orlando! I do hope you will come back to Paris soon and it will be an absolute pleasure showing you around again. I'll introduce you to my neighborhood, the finest in Paris (but I'm biased!) ;-) Aurevoir mes chers amis!

Anne was fantastic. She toured me, my wife and our teenage son back in March for the full day and was engaging, perceptive, funny and knowledgeable. It was my wife's second and our son's first visit to Paris (I've been many times) and she managed to keep everyone's attention all day long. Excellent communication skills. I can highly recommend her to others.

I wish I could give Anne 10 Stars! She is an outstanding tour guide-intelligent,interesting,flexible and kind. She customized our tour beautifully-for both first time and repeat visitors. In addition one of our group was ill-Anne helped us make sure she was taken care of and adjusted the tour later so she could join us. Also,Anne knew our plans for later in the week and helped to make sure we knew exactly where to go and how to maneuver the metro system. Thinking about a tour with Anne? Do not hesitate!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martha, thank you so much for such a glowing review! It was a pleasure to explore again the city with you and your party, and I felt really sorry about Marah not being able to join us. The first time we met was in May, during the Spring season.

Anne is one of the most enthusiastic and well informed guides we have had . No matter where we were in Paris - whether a museum , Montmartre , the Louvre , Rodin, Pantheon , painting , or sculpture - she knew her facts ! We had her for 1 full day and 2 half days and she never slowed down - Traveling by foot , metro , bus - Anne was always conscious of her approach to a cathedral , garden or statue - so we could see it from the best vantage point ! Thanks for a great time in Paris, Charlotte

You were a wonderful couple to tour with and I really enjoyed sharing my city - that you knew already very well - with you.

Anne was an excellent guide and went above and beyond to help us even before we arrived in France. There were items I needed to purchase upon arrival and she left a very detailed map waiting for me at my hotel to guide me to the needed stores. She was incredibly patient with my one year old son who was not always on his best behavior, and even took over the stroller during the tour to make things easier. Her immense knowledge also helped make for a great experience. I would definitely hire her again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Amanda, thank you for such a generous review! I had a wonderful time showing you around, and your charming little boy did behave very well.

On this full day tour, we saw every major landmark, had a Parisian lunch, enjoyed street performers and received advice on what to do with our remaining two days in Paris. Anne was the perfect host - even looking out for one of our party who had injured her foot. A stop in the pharmacy was included - where Anne deftly translated for us to be sure we got what we needed. The sites of Paris would not have meant as much without Anne's history & knowledge. This is the only way to see Paris.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Sherry, for this wonderful review! I am so glad you were able to feel comfortable navigating the city on your own. I was also very impressed by Chelsea's determination and courage despite her foot pain. I hope our paths will cross again and I wish your daughters the very best for their future endeavours -:)

What a fabulous day we had with Anne! My husband and I spent the entire day with her, exploring the city and sights. Anne's knowledge of history and her wonderful story telling ability made the old city of the past come alive! She took us to see things we never would have seen, and explained items and objects we would have just walked past, had we been on our own. I can not recommend Anne's tours enough! It was beyond fabulous, and we truly enjoyed the day. My additional advice- wear comfortable shoes!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for these very generous words, Laurie. I greatly enjoyed touring with you too. It is always a pleasure to share my passion for history (and food!) with fellow connoisseurs!

Date: Dec 2/16

Another excellent day with Anne as my local tour guide. We visited so many places and sites in Paris which I would never have gotten to on my own, and we covered such a lot in such a short time! Our visit to the Orsay Museum was enriched no end by Anne's training in art history, and Anne was most helpful with suggestions for what I should do on my own the next day. I came away feeling so satisfied with all that I covered in a 3-day visit to Paris. I highly recommend Anne as a local tour guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again, Michael, for your generous words! I'm also glad to read that you were happy with my recommendations for the day on your own. That said, I still have many things to share with you in Paris... so you should plan for another visit -:)

My first of two days of touring Paris with Anne was amazing. enjoyable and productive. I got to see Paris and learn about its history, art and culture from a very knowledgeable and pleasant tour guide who made it all the more special by adding that 'local color' to the experience. As an art historian, Anne knew her way around the Louvre, and we cover an amazing number of masterpieces in the time we had there. I highly recommend Anne as a tour guide, and it was money well spent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, thank you so much for this wonderful review! Spending time with you was a real pleasure and I've also enjoyed the discussions we've had on so many different topics. I do hope one day our paths will cross again -:)

If you are lucky enough to select Tours by Locals and book Anne whilst in Paris you will be guided through the most memorable experience possible. History, art, architecture, interwoven with charm and grace. Don't do all the major sites, let Anne show you her Paris, the backstreets that tell stories of the people of Paris, the food and the gardens that are the soul of Paris. We have had 3 days with Anne and we miss her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Mary! I'm glad that you enjoyed discovering "my" Paris, and I will be more than happy to share with you new experiences... for your next trip?

Anne is a very knowledgeable tour guide that definitely knows her way around Paris. We chose a private tour because of the obvious. We had no clue about where to go in Paris. Also, because we were traveling with young children and wanted to go at our own pace. Anne kept the tour schedule fluid to accommodate our needs. She also knew how to skirt crowds and get the best views. Anne provided us with good information on how to spend and navigate the rest of our stay in Paris.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Patrick, for your very kind testimonial! Time flied very quickly while touring with you and your family. Your lovely daughters were full of energy and so charming. I hope that you enjoyed these days in Paris and I also hope that you will enjoy your next trip to China -:)

We connected well with Anne and enjoyed our time with her and her love of all things Paris. She works very hard to achieve the tour you are looking for and time was not an element. She was pleasant and enjoyable and attentive to what we were looking for over a canned type tour that is predetermined before you start.

Anne provided an excellent service prior to and during our trip. She addressed my multiple questions via e-mail, providing suggestions and recommendations; she met us promptly and spent the whole day with us, giving some historical facts and practical information. Her stories were very interesting, her suggestions for places to visit on our other days in Paris were very specific (i.e. attractions to visit and corresponding metro stops, how to use metro map). We are highly recommending her as local guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Anna, for these very kind words! I also enjoyed touring with both of you, sharing ideas and learning about Odessa, its history and its architecture. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay, and that you had a great time in Versailles :-)

An absolutely perfect day! From her prompt meeting with us at 9:00am at our hotel, until she brought us directly to our correct line to climb the Eiffel Tower at 4:00 pm, Ann was a professional. She combined humor with her immense knowledge of Paris. Her knowledge of architecture and art were so helpful to us, especially at the Lourve and Notre Dame. She helped us find a perfect spot to get a take away picnic, which we enjoyed in a beutiful park in the shade, outside the Lourve. Highly recommend!!

If you are interested in art and art history, as well as other important sights, Anne is excellent. We were in Paris when the "Tour De France" was there. Thus, many streets and underground subway exits were closed. Anne negotiated around these obstacles very nicely. She really knows her City and the iconic tourist venues most want to visit. And she will tailor make your day to your preferences. She will get people where they are supposed to be in spite of congested roads and crowded venues.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Stephanie, for these very generous words! I'm glad that you enjoyed our day together, and I hope that you had a great cruise back to the U.S. It must have been a fantastic experience!

Anne was accommodating and knowledge. Includes miles of walking if you are up to it you will see areas not on standard tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Pete, for your testimonial! It is very important for me to share not only the discovery of the landmarks but also the lesser-known areas.This can be done during a walking tour, and I am glad that you noticed it. However, I am sorry to hear that you would have preferred a tour with a driver. I only offer walking tours whereas several Parisian TBL guides do offer tours with a driver and you would have been, most certainly, more happy with them. For your next trip to Paris, may be?

Anne was the perfect tour guide for a day in Paris. On time, knowledgeable on everything Paris; its history, the geography, adaptable to meeting the needs of our 87 year old grandmother, and expertly navigated our group from bus>train>river cruise seamlessly. It was very easy to hold a conversation with her whether asking a question about a historical site or personal history. She went out of her way to purchase tickets in advance to ensure that our whirlwind tour included all the requisite 'must sees.'
