About the tour

La République: Symbol of our democracy, the square with the statue, all the rollers guys, and the perfect example of Haussman in Paris. Canal’s banks: romantic and a bit creepy...2 worlds, the area is getting trendy but still located next to a poor part of Paris. Contrasts of the society! Hotel du Nord: famous movie spot

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 is always great. But these concentrated neighborhood tours have been fascinating. Not just a tour but also a story
