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 was very good and kept my interest on what he was telling us. He spoke slowly enough so that I understood without a problem. He covered all the relevant areas and it was awesome. Thanks to this wonderful Sight!! Will be returning.

What an interesting cemetery. So old and huge. Great information. Loved the respect you had for the mourners.

Patrick was very personable, but wee tad less than factual. He said Maria Callas is interred at Pere Lachaise but her remains are no longer there. When I asked about that fact in the chat, I was ignored. Whereas he addressed comments made before and after mine. So I asked again in a different way... and was still ignored. Also the terms of being buried there were oversimplified as a blank lease of 99 years or when children/grandchildren stop paying and maintaining the graves. The reality is that there are several different lengths of "leases." But that omission could have been for the sake of time. All in all - a pleasant, informative tour, but not completely accurate.
