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.

Patrick’s tours are a cut above! He chooses such interesting themes for his tours that I’ve seen places in Paris that I had never heard of much less seen. His knowledge is incredible, and his mannerisms and demeanor are genuine and absolutely delightful. I book every tour of his that I can find. I am such a fan!

I very much enjoyed this morning’s tour of Paris’s famous cemetery. Patrick was a great guide, and I felt like I was winding along the twisting paths with him. I would be happy to take another tour with him! One thing perhaps you could tell him… His English is very good, but could you please tell him that the word “crow” rhymes with “yo”. And that the word “acres” is pronounced Akers (rhymes with makers or takers). Thanks!

Really enjoyed the tour of Pere Lachaise. Merci beaucoup. Really looking forward to Normandy. One of my uncles had lived in Canada for many years, and was among the Canadian forces who landed in Normandy. Another of my uncles was a despatch rider for the British forces. He hadn’t seen his brother-in-laws for many years, but they met by chance on a road in Normandy. Life is strange, isn’t it?
