Meet your local guide


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

Loved this tour Eiffel tower by night tour. The flashing/blinking light show was awesome. Nice to see the Eiffel tour close up again after many years. The surrounding view was beautiful and Patrick pointed out important landmarks along the way. Merci

What a beautiful sight the Eiffel Tower is at night. To see all the changes the pandemic has caused around the world is a reality awakening. Patrick was quite entertaining. I hope to catch this tour again. It was that enjoyable. Happy travels all.

Patrick stumbled on a lot of very good coincidences - it’s getting darker than he thought, the Eiffel Tower lighting up and dancing! All this made for a great trip to Paris! Thanks 🙏
