Very knowledgeable and wonderful with our kids. Even under the pressure of the heat, the constant need for restrooms, all that we had to see, he was professional, polite, and entertaining. Would absolutely recommend.

Patrice arrive 5 minutes before scheduled time and met us as desribed. He then went over plans for day. Very informative of points of interest. Had pictures of area from original era allowing us to see transition over time. Was very supportive and showed interest in making our day the best possible experience. Great way to see Paris for 1st time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Charles Thank you so much for your very nice review. I m happy that you enjoyed this day and love the city of lights.

Our group really enjoyed Patrice's tour. Met us at our hotel as planned and left for a full day tour. We hit all the sights as advertised and more. We used the metro, bus and our feet to get around... always using the most efficient means to minimize travel time and maximize the sightseeing time. He explained how to use the metro so we could use it ourselves the following day. He directed my sister (the photographer) to the best spots at each stop for photos.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice review .. It was my pleasure to show you around Paris (my city)

Patrice was a very knowledgeable guide who obviously was very well acquainted with Paris. We visited many key sites in Paris and a few surrounding suburbs. We felt overall guide was a bit structured for a private tour and we had little to no input on what to see or where to go. There was a lot of walking which was to be expected) and it was nice to be able to use the local metro system. What a city Paris is! Can't wait to go back!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review. Yes, Paris is a beautiful city with much to see. My tour is indeed structured as to highlight the most popular sights for tourists. Had I known that you were interested in seeing other sights, I would have gladly altered the itinerary to accommodate your needs. Because of time constraints, we would have had to miss some of the most popular Parisian landmarks. I’m glad you enjoyed the tour and hope you return to the City of Lights as there is much more to discover.

Beatrice was fun and very knowledgeable. We saw a lot of popular Paris sites and some fun sites you don' see every day. Quite a bit more walking than was expected so have some really good shoes.

Patrice is very kind and sweet, however, it was a little too much walking for our 2 children (9 and 11yo). We walked 11 miles that day! We appreciated Patrice picking us up at the train station and delivering us back (a day trip), but felt that the day was more about checking off sites from a list rather than making the tour enjoyable. Also, I would have preferred more commentary while we were walking, rather than feeling like we were just trying to keep up! I likely won't be using Tours by Locals again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Antonia Thank you for your thoughtful review. Your comments were very insightful and have given me much to think about. It was my pleasure to have been able to give you and your family a taste of Paris in the short time we shared together. Sincerely yours PatriceB

Patrice took us through our first full day in Paris. We had a great time, saw many of the main attractions in the city, and did it on our feet (walking is the best way to get a feel for Paris). With all of the insightful comments and guidance from Patrice, he set us up to have a great time during the remainder of our stay in Paris.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David It was my pleasure to be your guide.

We (family of four with two teenagers) had a fine day with Patrice. We saw, and learned about in detail, an amazing amount in such a short time (Eiffel Tower, the Louvre buildings, Notre Dame, Montmartre), all with Patrice's expert insights into these. Lots of walking, which was fine because Patrice is flexible in the itinerary as the day progresses. A memorable day, so thoroughly recommended

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David for your nice review. I truly enjoyed to be your guide for this day in Paris. Sincerely PatriceB

Patrice was a wonderful guide, quite accommodating to the pace my family preferred to walk at and that I wanted to stop often to take pictures. We were especially pleased with the restaurant he selected for lunch and one we probably wouldn't have known of on our own. All in all, it was a beautiful day and we very much enjoyed getting to know Paris through his eyes!

I came to Paris only for only a couple of days. I am so glad I hired Patrice to show me this colorful city! I can not believe how much we explored in just a day. Patrice made sure I wasn't rushed, respected my pace and interests. He amused me with unusual stories of Paris history, and by the end of the day, I felt like at 'Parisian at home'. I would highly recommend to anyone to hire Patrice instead of stumbling thru Paris on their own!

My husband and I had been to Paris several times but this is the first time our teenage daughters came with us. Patrice did a wonderful day tour of Paris! We saw all the highlights of this beautiful city from the arch de triumphe to the Eiffel Tower to Montmartre!! He was very patient and did not rush us at all! The weather was nice so we walked through neighborhoods which is the best way to see Paris!! He didn't care if our kids wanted to go in a shop on the way! Its like a friend showing you around!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci. It was fun and nice to show you Paris during this beautiful day.

Patrice is very knowledgeable and congenial. Our day tour designed for someone who has been to Paris many time but still hadn't seen everything was a perfect adventure. We went to st Dennis cathedral was great. The to the famous cemetery. Trust me you need a guide there. The weather and cloudy day was perfect for a cemetery visit. We visited a beautiful food market and had a wine tasting. All local and charming. Patrice is a great convetsationist too. He is in himself a remarkable person.

We had a fantastic tour of Paris with Patrice. Really didn't feel like we were on the clock, but felt like having an old friend taking us around his city. He was very flexible in adjusting the day to what we wanted, and even helped to bargain prices for paintings at Montmatre. If we get a chance to come back to Paris, we will definitely be looking him up again. Highly recommend any tour with Patrice.

My family and I traveled to London and I could not conceive of experiencing my first trip overseas without seeing Paris. Although we had only a short visit, Patrice was able to assist me in seeing all the highlights of Paris I had always longed to see. His convivial personality and sense of humor made it an even more enjoyable experience. I appreciated his intimate knowledge of the city and his commentary was engaging and enlightening. Highly recommend Patrice for your guide to the city!

A great tour. We saw most of Paris, he modified his tour on the go for us. We got to see all the sites the tourist wants to see plus other sites the tourist does not know they want to see but must be seen. We are planning a return trip to see his other tours. Engaging, entertaining, informative. It is like seeing Paris with a friend showing you around. If you only book one tour of Paris book this one. You will walk but you won't feel it.

My last day in Paris was punctuated with a brisk morning walk to Arc de Triumph, continuing on to the Eiffel Tower, lunch in a nice cafe and the Metro to Mont Martre. Patrice told me about all points of interest on the way. He seemed to have an encyclopedic brain filled with limitless information on the subject of his beloved Paris. Clearly passionate about his city and his work, my tireless guide made my lifelong dream a reality. If you haven't seen Paris with Patrice, you haven't seen Paris!

For anyone traveling alone and on a tight schedule, it's most important to select the right guide. I wanted to see and do absolutely everything there is to see and do in Paris--in three all too short days. After a delightful introduction in my hotel lobby and a serious discussion about my footwear, I changed my shoes and off we went. I have a desk job--he said we could take the Metro, but I'd miss a lot--he was right, as he always was. I opted to walk and missed nothing. It was a fabulous tour!
