CINTHIA RAMIREZ Private tour guide in Paris, Versailles - France


Guide profile:

Certified Tour Guide English - Español - specialized on family tours

Originally from Chile, I arrived in Paris 2005 to study and go back. Instead I became an official guide fascinated by such a cultural, historical and open-minded city.

Without noticing it, I fell in love with Paris. This city is magnetic. It exerted a powerful attraction on me. Thanks to it, I became a great storyteller sharing not only historical facts but a thousand stories about this wonderful city . Today I invite you to walk with me to discover the city of the enlightenment as well as its surroundings. My mission is to bring Paris to life with historical facts, anecdotes, cultural aspects, its idiosincracy as well as its artistical life and to make you spend a fun, memorable and knowledgeable moment.

My tours are for everybody: friends, couples, individuals, teenagers and families with children. I can adapt myself depending on your needs.

Nacida en Chile y con un deseo inmenso de conocer el mundo, empecé a trabajar como guía durante mis años universitarios. Centros astronómicos, viñedos y la tierra de Gabriela Mistral fueron algunos de mis lugares favoritos. Profesora titulada en Inglés, empecé este largo viaje. Primero enseñando en mi propio país y luego emprendiendo un vuelo más alto.

Tenía 26 años cuando decidí venir a París para continuar mis estudios. Al final en lugar de volver a casa, me quedé. Sin darme cuenta, me enamoré de la ciudad. París es magnética. Gracias a ella, soy hoy Guia Nacional. Tanto como narrador e historiador compartiré un saco de historias sobre la vida de ser un parisino y por supuesto sobre ciudad de la luz, . Quiero hacerles revivir tiempos idos con hechos históricos, anécdotas, aspectos culturales. Revelar su idiosincrasia, así como su vida artística y hacerles pasar un momento memorable.

Mis visitas son para todo el mundo: amigos, grupos, familias con niños,etc. Puedo adaptarme en función de sus necesidades.

I had a most memorable day with Cinthia in Paris. Along with her delightful, friendly personality she has an enormous stash of knowledge to impart to her touring clients. Hi From the outset when sourcing a Viator guide her responses were prompt and we quickly covered an itinerary of the places I wanted to see in my short stop-over in Paris.

My only regret is that my stay was short - I would have loved to have spent a few more days with Cinthia in and around Paris.

Highly recommended :-)

Tour guide interests:

Both being a teacher for more than 10 years and experiencing "Aupair in America" program have encouraged me to explore new ways to motivate children. Learning a museum or walking around the city might seem boring. I have a fondness for children and I know that as long as they are having a good time, they remain motivated. That is why my interest to develop new ways to open their eyes to culture.

I am also keen on travelling and meeting new people. This is the main reason I left my homeland. I was curious about cultures around the world and I decided to explore them. Music, movies, sports, books, photography and writings are also part of my life.

Cinthia is fantastic! She has a wonderful personality and her knowledge of French and art history is unsurpassed. We could not be more happy with our choice of Cinthia as our guide in Paris.

Tour Guide Comment: thanks so much for loving the two days with me. I love what I do and I try to do it with passion. I hope you could feel it. Thanks once again for sharing your experience. Regards Cinthia

5 stars Amanda A. 24 May 2018

This was my first trip to France for work and I was traveling solo. I did not want to miss out on the great experience and history of Paris, so I decided to book a private tour. I did this because I am not confident or comfortable enough to tour Paris alone. Cinthia met me at my train and guided me through the train station. She was friendly and welcoming from the very beginning. It was a perfect afternoon and I learned so much more from her than I could have learned on my own. I recommend!!!

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks so much for sharing your experience. It was a pleasure to have met you and taught you a little about this fantastic city.

MOST AMAZING Guide, HEAR THAT WORLD? Our adventure to Versailles & into History began the moment we met in Paris. Perfect English. A blend and depth of information & relaxation at a pace that kept us on track without ever feeling rushed or overwhelmed. Book Cinthia and follow ALL her recommendations. You too will appreciate her passion, knowledge, kindness; and understand why we now call her "Cousin Cinthia". Wanted to write 10 pages, only 500 char review. Au Revoir & MERCI BEAUCOUP Cinthia!

Tour Guide Comment: Dear George, we all spent a great time together in the whole domain of Versailles. Thanks a lot for sharing your experience and hope to see you once again. We are family now.

In June 2018 my grandson and I hired Cinthia for two days as our Paris tour guide. Cinthia is knowledgeable, fun and professional tour guide. We learned so much from her. She's warm and delightful. Her teaching style, including drawings she brought, engages you in the history and its characters. We enjoyed the exclusivity she provided. Cinthia also helped us with tips for traveling in Paris on our own. I'll recommend her to any of our friends going to Paris.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Carmen, I am glad to know that you and your grandson spent a wonderful time in Paris. Thanks so much for your kind words and for your positive spirit.

Cinthia was a great tour guide. We had her do the tour in Spanish as that is what my girlfriend was most comfortable with. She was excellent with planning and communication prior to the tour. She was very well organized and thorough in her knowledge of the Notre Dame and Ile de la Cite. She also shared a lot of personal anecdotes of her time in Paris. Cinthia is an extremely warm and personable person and her tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris!

Muchas Gracias Cinthia!

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks so much for you kind words and for enjoying as much as I did the tour in the 'ile de la cité'. Sharing your experience with others makes me happy and proud of what I do. Hope to see both of you again soon.

Cinthia fue muy profesional, atenta, amable y puntual. Sus recomendaciones en restaurantes fueron exquisitas. En nuestro caso viajamos con nuestra hija de 8 a~os, todavía esta hablando el tour. Cinthia le trajo actividades particulares y dirigidas a ella.Cinthia tiene un pleno conocimiento de la ciudad, sus rincones e historia.

Tour Guide Comment: Gracias por su comentario y feliz que haya sido de su agrado.

5 stars Catalina C. 21 Jun 2017

El tour lo hice con Cinthia Ramirez, me fue a buscar a la estación de tren y todo estuvo perfecto. Ella tiene material didáctico como plano de París que muestra cómo se fundó la ciudad, dibujos de los reyes con sus nombres y la relación entre ellos con las fechas. Ella amable, entretenida, claros conocimientos del tema, da certeros consejos para viajar por París. Disfruté mucho del viaje y del tour....100% recomendable.

Tour Guide Comment: Muchas gracias Catalina por compartir tu experiencia de conocer París con un guía oficial. Así la ciudad cobra vida al revivir grandes episodios de su historia. Hasta la próxima

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip with Cinthia. I originally booked a tour of Notre Dame but she was extremely flexible and instead I took a day trip with her using car and driver to Fontainbleau, Vaux le Vicomte, and the town of Barbizon. This tour was the high point of my Paris trip and thoroughly enjoyable and informative. She was an excellent guide and made the trip truly memorable. Cinthia was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and interesting. I recommend her most highly!

Tour Guide Comment: It was a pleasant and memorable experience. Thanks so much for your kind words and for letting me bring back to life those incredible places such as Vaux le Vicomte and its amazing history.

5 stars Carmen G. J. 25 Feb 2016

La visita ha sido fantástica, lo recomiendo al cien por cien. Y nuestra guía Cinthia es lo mejor de lo mejor. Nos transmitió pasión en todo lo que explicaba y los conocimientos que tenía son impresionantes. Ha sido inolvidable. Hemos hecho un recorrido de arte y de historia que no se nos olvidará jamás. Una guía amena y generosa que hizo que nuestra visita fuera magnífica!!

Tour Guide Comment: Pasamos un momento inolvidable lleno de historias, hechos y sonrisas. Fue un placer conocerlas.
