Susanne was a wonderful guide. It was our grandchildren's first visit to Paris and the tour was perfect to acquaint them with the city. They not only walked but they also had their first Metro rides to reach the sites visited. Susanne had planned the tour very well and was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Susanne's commentary as we toured the city was informative, insightful and stimulating for us as well as for our grandchildren. I would recommend this tour highly.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. Our private tour with Susanne on our first full day in Paris was the perfect way to start our week. She taught us enough practical and cultural things to put us at ease in in the city and generally get us oriented. Her extensive knowledge of history and present day Paris was interesting and entertaining. Our comfort level and confidence with navigating and enjoying the city during our stay was greatly enhanced by the tour. Thank you so much Susanne!

We had a fantastic day sightseeing with Susanne! We ended up doing our tour on bikes and my teenagers loved it. We had been doing a lot of walking so this was a nice change of pace. Susanne was extremely knowledgeable and we saw a lot of areas in our time with her. She was extremely accommodating to all of our needs. She has a great personality too! I would highly recommend her. My 13 year old son says this was one of his favorite days on the whole trip!

We really enjoyed our tour with Susanne. She was punctual and adapted our tour to fit our wishes. The tour was very relaxed and had time to stop and take coffee and lunch breaks which were suggested to us and were just as important a part of our experience of Parisien life as seeing some of the monuments. We covered Montmartre, Notre Dame Cathedral, Le Marais district and many monuments and sights in those areas. Loved her friendly manner and good knowledge of Paris. Some common travel experiences, too.

Susanne was simply amazing! Her knowledge of Paris and its rich history made our tour come to life. Susanne was extremely patient with all of our questions. Our three daughters, ages 9 up to 18, loved her! Susanne was accommodating as she took additional time to write down an itinerary of suggested things to do for our remaining time in Paris. At the end of the tour, Susanne personally guided us back to our hotel using the Metro. Our family could not have asked for a better experience touring Paris!

Susanne was very knowledgeable and accomodating and made our first day in Paris very memorable. We saw so much of the city as well as became familiar with the metro and now have more confidence in heading out to explore on our own. She gave us recommendations on bistros, restaurants, sites to see and other activities to do while we are in the city. If it's your first trip to Paris I can't think of a better person to make the introduction of the city to you.

We had the most fantastic day with Suzanne! Her knowledge of Paris was tremendous! She brought us to all the special places that we definitely would have missed if touring by ourselves! We went from one end of Paris to the other - using the Metro and walking!! After our day with Suzanne, we felt completely comfortable using the Metro, and used it quite often after, as if we were locals! This is a very informative tour and I recommend it highly, if it's your first visit to Paris!

We have a very fun day with Susanne doing a walking tour around Paris early this week. The tour lasted 6 hours and we walked several miles; Susanne had high energy throughout and was full of interesting facts and tidbits about Paris. We even stopped for some award winning bread along the way. She also did a nice job engaging our kids, ages 11 and 12, and answering their questions.

I am confident I was able to see more sights with Susanne than I could have on my own for three or four days. Susanne was very knowledgeable, very friendly and engaged with my entire group. I would highly recommend Tours by Locals and more specifically Susanne for any trips to France.

Susanne was a wonderful tour guide! Thoughtful, reliable, prompt, flexible and a true delight to be around. I was thrilled with my tour experience and it was well worth the money spent. Got to see and learn about much more than I would have if I was on my own. Her knowledge of Paris, ability to provide the right & Interesting kind of information was better than expected. I had an outstanding tour, and my remaining time in Paris was wonderful thanks to the information and help Susanne provided.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Amy! It was a pleasure meeting you and spending the day with you! Keep in touch!

My daughter and I had a wonderful tour with Suzanne! We decided to use bikes for our tour so were able to see so much more! Her knowledge of France's history is astounding! Suzanne is energetic and pleasant. I highly recommend her for your tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeanine! You were very energetic and pleasant as well, 6 hours of biking it was great!! I have my first tan for this summer. Hope you got back home safe, and I hope to see you again in Paris!

Susanne is amazing, she made the Paris 6 hours tour a very joyful experince. She showed exactly on agreed time, fully prepared of day plan and backup plans as well, after 10 mints brief we hit the road, we moved smartly between places, took many photos (she is real good in showing best locations for that), we covered lots of attraction in perfect pace (not too fast nor too slow) we also visited lovely Parisian cafe, also enjoyed best ice cream in town, I surly loved the whole experince.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mohamed for this lovely review! I appreciate a lot the conversations that we had and I learned a lot from you as well. I am looking forward to our next tour on Saturday!!

Susanne guided us on an introductory walking tour of Paris. We enjoyed seeing not only some of the larger attractions but also some of the smaller, tucked-away gems. The background Susanne provided at each site made everything interesting and fun. By the end of our tour, we felt we had covered quite a bit of ground and made the most of our time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lea and Tom, I appreciate a lot. I had a fantastic day with you and the kids and hope to welcome you again in Paris someday!

Our tour guide, Susanna (or Suzanne - never got that straight) was an absolute wonder. She was so very pleasant, so helpful, so knowledgeable and so great with the kids traveling with us. We enjoyed every single second of the tour she gave us and would love to go back and have her give us a more in depth tour of some of the places she took us. I can't give enough praise to this lovely young woman.... In short, we couldn't have been happier with her and she is a real asset to your company.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this heart-warming review and for a very special day! Hope to see you all again, keep in touch!!

Susanne was very nice, knowledgeable, and willing to adjust to what my family wanted to see and do. We were unfamiliar with Paris, the Metro, locations within the City, but felt very comfortable exploring Paris with such a friendly local who gave us interesting facts and tidbits about the sights around us that we wouldn't have known otherwise. We felt like we had covered a lot of ground after this tour, and knew where we wanted to return the next day to spend more time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Angela for your comment! Hope to see you and your family again! Kind regards, Susanne

Susanne was responsive by email even offering to help with suggestions and reservations for a birthday celebration. strictly I suppose Susanne is not a local parisian but her enthusiasm for the city was clear. We quickly went off-piste tailoring our tour to our (more foodie than artistic ) taste. We were lucky with our choice of using the velolib bikes which were cheap and we seemed mostly to be on routes with no traffic thanks to Susanne . We finished with a beer in the park after a great day out!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Jon and Nicky! I hope the birthday surprise was fantastic yesterday and that the weather in Paris will stay dry this week so you can cycle a lot!!

took this tour on my first day in Paris. Even thought I've been to Paris before I couldn't help feeling that I wasn't really seeing all there was to see so I booked a Tourby Locals with Susanne V. She picked me up right at my hotel and off we went for the day to discover Paris. I loved her! She was charming, informative and it was the first time I've ever used the velibs to cycle around the city and I loved it and felt completely safe with her as we cycled the city and she introduced me to the real Paris

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Maureen! And thank you again for the lovely time we've spent together! It was a fantastic day. Keep up your French and hope to see you again soon!:)

Susanne is a professional, a lady and now, a friend. She is an expert on the area and went out of her way to customize a day specifically to meet my needs as I just had a short window to see "everything." She took me to all the sights at my pace. Skeptically, I took her recommendation to ride a bike through some downtown neighborhoods, and funny, it was an unexpected highlight and memory. I had a great experience and will call Susanne again if ever I have another 9 hour layover in Paris!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again Stephen for this beautiful review. I am happy to hear that the biking was an unexpected highlight and memory! I hope to welcome you (and your family) back sometime in Paris for more biking:)!! Take care
