Besides the fact that I was born "during the previous millenium" like Lewis Trondheim, from "a mother and a father" like Laurent Hours, from all my travels and the people I met... a bit like Nicolas Bouvier, what may be most important to you is that I am a certified National Guide, have been since 1998, and that I was a tour leader long before that.
Now might you ask: " what is a guide?"
Well, we all have an answer... To me, it is someone who accompanies you with a vibrato, and diplomas... and a "wee" sense of humour? I know, it's hard to believe with the picture... But I like to think th

Hello ! Welcome to my page ! My name is David KAFARI. Tour leader and tour-guide since 2004, I became an independent and private tour leader since 2009.
I would like to introduce France - my country - I am born and raised in Paris. From a different way : you have impersonal and formatted bus tours where freedom is very limited. And you have my tours. Affordable, fun and without any limited time.
I always treat my guests as friends. Easy-going and kind I feel responsible of you, so I will treat you as I would like to be treated if I was in your country : courtesy, honesty are my main val

Hi, Welcome to Paris!
I was born in Saint-Germain en Laye, the Louis XIV birth city. Like a predetermination, I always wanted to spend time surrounded by art and history. In high school I discovered art history and knew it would be my world. Indeed, in the University I spent five years to get my master's degree in art history. At 20 years old, I settled in Paris and fell in love with this romantic, beautiful, sparkling, and poetic city. However, few years ago I studied for a year in New York University where I opened my heart to joy of meeting people from all over the world. Back in my Paris

I have just retired as an executive in Industry. Now that I have the time to do it, I would like to share my knowledge of Paris having been born in Paris and lived and studied my entire life in the historical center. I still live there today and am therefore very up to date with its cultural life, events and places to go. I have travelled extensively throughout the world during my business life mostly in North America, Europe and Asia, on my own, with my family or with colleagues. I often found it difficult to locate a guide that would make me better understand the history and the culture Learn more
