A former Cistercian abbey in the heart of the Valois, the Domaine de Chaalis, its chapel described as the "Sistine Chapel of the Oise", (well ... maybe they are a bit exagerating L0L) its "Jacquemart-André Museum", its park and its rose garden classified as a "remarkable garden". This ensemble, rich in nine centuries of history, is nestled in the hollow of a wooded valley that has been admired by visitors for decades.
Patrick isn't one to shy away from travel and adventure. "I was lucky enough to travel the world with my job, discover different cultures, and meet incredible people!" he says, after having explored multiple cities across Europe and Asia. On his tours, you may catch more than a surprise or two about Paris. "In fact, it is an everyday experience. I'm a native Parisian, but every day, I continue to discover new things, new secrets about Paris. It's a never-ending story," he laughs. It was his love for Paris that led him to become a guide. "I'm a father and a teacher, and I realized that my passion was to share my knowledge, so I decided to be a guide about one of my passion: Paris!" Patrick chips in. "I enjoy sharing the love and passion I have for my own city, Paris. Its monuments, its history, its gastronomy, its culture, and all of its little secrets. I can't wait to share all of these with you!" "At the end of my tour I always give a virtual bise - two in fact being a good Parisian!" he laughs.

In an empty church he drops his voice to a whisper so can't be heard.

Patrick is always a thoughtful and interesting tour guide. Today's visit to the Abbey of Chaalis was a treat, as tours outside of Paris are not so common. The Abbey grounds were breathtaking, especially with the colorful variety of roses in bloom. Patrick is very knowledgeable about French art and history, so you always take away new facts and information with every tour. Heygo is very lucky to have Patrick on board their team!
