Our family of 6, with children ages 17, 12, 12, and 10, spent 5 days touring with Laurine in Paris and the Loire Valley. Not only is Laurine extremely knowledgeable about Paris and France as well as professional, but she is also very personable and felt like a member of our family this past week. She and the Meet the Locals team were excellent at adapting tours, real-time, as we progressed to meet our family's needs and even arranged two tuk-tuks at the last minute with only 1 hour's notice to add to our Sweet & Chocolate tour. Just an amazing guide and an even better person that our entire family very much enjoyed spending time touring with this week. Dominique, the owner, put together an amazing group of tours that was the perfect mixture of sightseeing, history, activities, and food that made this an amazing trip for our entire family. She was extremely responsive during planning and even arranged for a delicious birthday cake during our Loire River private cruise as well as personally met us for dinner later that day in Amboise, bringing two birthday gifts for our twins who turned 12 that day! I can't recommend Dominique and Laurine enough. After the week we just experienced, I can honestly say that Dominique is Superwoman and Laurine is Mary Poppins! Merci beaucoup, Dominique and Laurine!

We were 2 families with kids ages 13-3 and spent 2 weeks in Paris and London. We did almost all the tours and activities Meet the Locals has to offer and even some coordinated some others outside their catalog, like Jules Vernes Lunch, cruise lunch, LV hopping appointment, Airport-Hotel transportations and COVID protocols requirements and much more. Dominique handled impressively great all our needs and requests. Yaëlle, Sebastien, Sophie and the drivers were awesome and very patient and understanding of our kids different age needs and interest, while the adults also had space and time to enjoy all of it. Great vacation and learning experience. Sebastien was so into his character that my son though he was the actual burglar of the story he was playing to do a scavenger hunt. We had a wonderful time.

I cannot recommend this experience enough. We had a 2 hour tour with Sylvanie, who kept our three kids, ages 11, 8 & 6, completely engaged the entire time. The booklets that come with the treasure hunt were age appropriate for each of my kids and a great souvenir from our trip. We saw some great art, my husband and I were able to enjoy the museum, as we weren't having to wrangle our kids, and we all learned something new. This was money well spent and I would highly recommend it!

Excellent private tour guide! Knowledgeable, patient, on time, engaging for the whole family. We did the scavenger hunt at the Louvre with Marine. The kids were so invested in her stories and explanations. She’s a great storyteller and helped us focus on areas of the museum that we would’ve missed. Her light heartedness was appreciated and she knew exactly how to navigate around crowds and large tour groups. She whisked us in and around various key sculptures, artifacts and paintings all the while demonstrating deep knowledge of art history and architecture. I would 100% book I’m so again with this company.

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 :-)

My wife and two children (ages 7 and 10) recently did the Versailles tour for kids. Laurine was an amazing guide! She was engaging with both kids, having them guide us through the gardens to various areas, and somehow finding some quite space in the crowds inside to stop in each room and tell some fantastic historical stories. I can't recommend this tour enough!

We had booked multiple tours (Chocolate and pastry tour, Versailles, Louvre and a
Tuk-Tuk ride that ended in Montmartre) with Meet the Locals during our stay in Paris. I was glad we had Laurine for all the tours. She was engaging with my kids and kept them interested in everything that we did. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history of Versailles and the art in the Louvre. The chocolate and pastry tour were so much fun, and we were able to taste different things. I highly recommend Laurine and Meet the Locals. It felt more like our friend was taking us through Paris then a regular tour guide!

We did the Louvre, Sainte Chapelle, & Eiffel Tower Tour. Ms Cindy was great! Fabulous communication from a few days before all the way through the end. She was able to keep the attention of our 6yo and teens as well as us adults.

We also had booked the Versailles tour, but it was cancelled last minute due to Versailles closing for safety reasons. Ms Cindy met us as planned, let us know the situation, but it officially closed before we made it out there. Without question we were totally refunded.

I’m typically very hands on and will plan everything and buy all tickets on my own. I am so thankful we trusted Meet the Locals for these activities as I know we got more fun and less stress from going with them instead of relying on myself.

Our family LOVED our Sweet & Chocolate tour with Nathalie. The tour with Nathalie was excellent. She was wonderful and we give her the highest ratings. She was so kind, nice and professional. She took us to so many food stops (more than any other 2 hour food tour our family has been on in other countries). We had a large amount of food which was fabulous as we all were hungry. She paced us well and did not rush any food stop. The tour had many/varied types of French chocolate and desserts. We would not change anything and hope many more families can enjoy this tour with Nathalie!!

We had the most amazing guide named Steven while we were in London! He took us around the city as well as the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey. He was sooooo knowledgeable about all things London and was so great with the kids too! 5 stars all the way!
