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!
You want to discover Paris ? The historical? The funny? The real one? I am your guide !
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 w

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

Originally from the region of Lyon, I was first interested by art, history and gastronomy.
After several years spent abroad (Mexico, Canada, Italy, UK, etc), I became more and more interested in what makes our cultures so different, and what make our french (and lyonnaise!) culture so specific.
Now, I am passionate about my city, my culture, and I love to talk about it !
My 2 favorite tours :
- Daybreak over the Vieux-Lyon.
The renaissance area is a gorgeous place, but it can be quite crowded some times. If you are brave enough to wake up early and start the tour around 8am, you w
