About the tour

Isn't it a nightmare to arrive at a restaurant and discover 4 knives and forks, 2 spoons, 3 glasses on the table? Should you cut the salad? How many pieces of cheese can you take and what about the bread...? Too many rules! Also, how to Say hello: Bonjour? Enchanté? “La bise” (kiss on the cheeks)? Shake hands? A hug? Should you bring flowers or wine? On this very special tour, Patrick takes you to his own home and will explain in more details the French "savoir vivre” And lucky you, Patrick will even teach you how to cook his famous family dishes from Brittany : "La Galette Complète ". Be careful, don't tell him it is a crepe ! Patrick will explain the difference between "crêpe" and "galette". Disclaimer: allergen not provided.

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

I was expecting a tour of Paris. Was a bit turned off by the food on the sides of his mouth while cooking. Sorry :( Otherwise he seems to be a great communicator.

This was my first Virtualtour and I loved every minute. Patrick was fun to watch and I learned a lot about galettes and crepes.

Patrick was as funny as ever, making cooking pancakes a breeze. It is not always, but he talked his way though the method, explaining why he did certain things. His travellers added to the banter making this a fun tour.
