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

This was my second tour with Patrick, and as with the first one, it was very enjoyable! Patrick is friendly, with a great sense of humor, and very knowledgeable. He showed several of the graves of well-known "inhabitants" of the cemetery, including French playwright Moliere, American rock singer/musician from the Doors, Jim Morrison, and Polish/French composer Frederic Chopin. Great tour! Recommend!
