Thank you for making our first family trip to Paris so special! Our tour guide was wonderful and the kids loved these once in a lifetime experiences!!! We loved all of the special touches you were able to add which made each stop perfect! The communication leading up to the tour date was perfect...our tour followed restrictions being lifted following COVID-19. They made the itinerary easy to follow. This tour was fantastic for our family of 5. We highly recommend this trip along with others that Meet the Locals offers. Top notch!

We have taken a number of history oriented private walking tours in recent years. Our recent private tour with Sebastien was our 6th in Paris and was excellent! I can not recommend a tour more highly. We had requested a combination of the “normal” WWII Paris walking tour and various arcane points of special interest to us. As an example, I had requested that our guide take us to the Paris home of former French Premier Paul Reynaud. I could not find the address either through an extensive online search, various books or through any other medium. Well, in no time, Sebastien had us standing in front of it! What more could someone ask? I had also requested a guide with whom I could have an in depth discussion of French politics between the two World Wars. Sebastien was exceptionally knowledgeable and added greatly to my understanding of that complex and troubled period of French political life. I could go on for some time, but let it suffice to say that our Meet the Locals tour with Sebastien was exceptionable in every way. My wife and I highly recommend both Meet the Locals and Sebastien in particular. We will be back in Paris before long and look forward to our next tour with this relatively new and highly professional organization.

Thank you so much… we had an amazing experience! Our host, João, was extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. Our baker… what can I say… his love for his craft and passion is inspirational. We learned so much - from baking to history to interesting facts about food. It was really a magical experience and we feel blessed to have spend it with your team :-)

We have just returned from a week in Paris with my parents and our 8 year old son. We actually did 5 different tours with Meet the Locals but tripadvisor limits how many you can write. I can't say enough nice things about this company. We booked these tours three weeks before we left and from first contact they were on the ball and paid attention to every detail. The day we arrived they left a giant bag of sweet treats, a stuff Ratatouille for our son, and a bound copy of our itinerary at our hotel to welcome us. It was the perfect way to kick off the trip. We had three generations on our trip and all of us felt like the tours were customized for us. We encountered two issues during our trip that were not preventable by anyone and they were solved immediately for us (scheduling and language issues). We felt like we had a private concierge taking care of our every need. Meet the Locals met and exceeded every expectation we had. You can't go wrong hiring this company for your travel needs.
