Meet your local guide

Patrick

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.

Patrick has been guiding since Sep 2020

I've been on several of the auction tours and really enjoyed them. I believe that in the very first one there were 1 or 2 sales. Unfortunately, today people seemed confused as to the purpose. Perhaps due to the growth of the size of audience it doesn't work as well. Or maybe make sure that people know it's a real auction. Specific to Patrick he does a terrific job sharing small details that really make it unique like the restaurant that Django played in.

Little bit of silly fun on a wet Monday in UK, easy to follow and liked the background to the items up for 'auction'.
