CHRISTINE IN PARIS/LILLE/REIMS Private tour guide in Paris, Lille - France

CHRISTINE IN PARIS/LILLE/REIMS

Guide profile:

CUSTOMIZED GUIDED TOURS, FAMILY FRIENDLY - In Paris - Lille - Reims

I am a full-time qualified guide and tour manager, mainly with English-speaking visitors but also Spanish and French. For bigger groups (more than 10 people), I can help creating tours upon request all over Europe.

FAMILY FRIENDLY : my itineraries and activities are adapted to families with children or teenagers, so that adults and younger ones can have fun and still learn and discover together.

FOOD & DRINKS : this is such an important aspect of a trip abroad ! I will make sure you get to taste a local specialty and recommend places to eat or specialties to try !

LEARN/IMPROVE YOUR FRENCH : You can also join tours for individuals/groups who want the visit in French language, but adapted to their level. This includes a French "lesson" and gives the opportunity to practice in a relaxed atmosphere and in real situations, with small and fun exercices ...

Having the skills of a tour manager combined with the expertise of a national guide gives me the ability to run a guided tour from A to Z : discovery, fun activities, art in the street or in the museums, walking and using local transportation, visiting local markets and tasting French amazing patisserie ... but also help you organize other visits in France and find the fastest and cheapest way to travel.

12 year- experience with private and large groups guiding in France , and leading/creating tours all over Europe working for renowned agencies and tour operators. References available on request.

Unforgettable! This was the best and in the past I have never regretted going private. It is a luxury ,but when you're in Paris for only a couple of days this is the way to go. Christine knows so much about everything and so helpful even with giving advise to our next destination. We spent a day and half with her and it was amazing! Thank you so much, we will never forget Paris.

5 stars Mike N. 31 Aug 2015

We had a wonderful day with Christine. Prior to arriving in Paris the four of us submitted our list of places to see. Christine had it all planned out but left plenty of time to show us other nearby sites. Thanks to Christine we had an unforgettable Paris experience. We would recommend Christine to anybody traveling to Paris. Mike and Co.

Christine was excellent and guided us through the battlefields out of Lille into Fromelles and through Ypres to show us the Australian sections and involvement in the war. Her knowledge of the history was excellent and Christine spent the time everywhere we went to explain in detail the Australian involvement as well as other historical moments. I recommend Christine highly and we had an excellent trip with her. Thanks Christine

If you want to spend a fantastic day with an amazing local tour guide in Lille, Christine Segall is the guide for you. She will welcome you with a warm smile and charm you with all the local history. Be sure to ask her about the chapel and the museum in L'Hermitage Gantois Hotel and why Meert is such a lovely place to enjoy a cup of tea! If ever I return to Lille, Christine will be the first person I hope to see again!

5 stars Shereen T. 06 Jan 2015

Christine was really easy to work with. She was incredibly thoughtful (especially since we were a big group of various ages), experienced & knowledgable throughout our time with her. Will definitely tour with her on our next trip to Paris :)

5 stars Jennifer M. 20 Dec 2014

Christine was incredible! We all loved her knowledge, fun, enthusiasm and great ability to keep us all engaged and enjoying ourselves so much. Her personal tour of our Australian WWI sights was so special. I can honestly only RAVE about how good she is - definitely book her as we think she is really wonderful.

5 stars Darcy M. 01 Sep 2014

Christine is a great tour guide. She arrived at our hotel promptly and spent a full day taking us around Paris. We wanted to see certain areas and learn the metro system and Christine made sure we achieved both goals. She know Paris very well and is a good historian. We highly recommend her.

5 stars Elaine B. 19 Jul 2014

Super! Fantastic! Christine has excellent communication and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Couldn't have asked for anyone better!!!!!!!

5 stars Charles J. 22 Oct 2013

Christine, what can I say? All the other reviews I read were spot on. She was on time, pleasant flexible and very knowledgeable. She even put up with my lousy French with grace and kindness, and helped me to improve it in only a day. We covered a large amount of ground in our 8 hours. Montmartre, Sacre' Couer, Dali, Picasso and then a crêpe dejeuner were wonderful. Then on to Notre Dame and Musee d'Orsay before saying our goodbyes. Highly recommend for any English speakers.

5 stars ken M. 20 Apr 2013

Christine is, in a word, terrific. From the first moment we met Christine, we knew it was going to be a terrific day. She was personable, knowledgeable, flexible, and engaging. We had grand ambitions of taking in as much of Paris in a day as we could, and Christine did not disappoint. She had a well-planned itinerary based on our prior email exchanges but allowed us to change midstream to slow down where we wanted, or shift priorities as we went. I can recommend Christine without hesitation.

5 stars Ann W. 19 Sep 2012

Christine was brilliant. On time at the hotel to pick us up. She was charming with excellent English. Two hours was sufficient for the tour (old legs) but her love for Lille was obvious and our group of 10 were also delighted with the town. She made it more interesting for us because of her knowledge of Lille. We can highly recommend her.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks Ann for your nice words. I have to say you were a most pleasant group. Hope you made it to the Swimming Pool. Take care Christine
