About the tour

although it is a Royal city it was often called the imperial city because of its importance during the Second Empire. It is also the city where the armistice of WWI was signed and of the French surrender in 1940. It also bears the heavy burden of having hosted the transit camps for the death camps in Germany. Patrick will show you a lot more of this sumptuous city centre and its royal and imperial past.

Meet Patrick Herpe

Patrick Herpe

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.
