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

What a great part 2 of this tour ("The Famous Graves of Père-Lachaise Cemetery - Part II"). Patrick has packed this tour (parts I and II) full of information and anecdotes, I loved the quirky stories about unusual tombs and legends. Please, for those requesting that the guide shows a specific notable person's grave, note that the cemetery is HUGE and it would take a long time to walk to a requested viewing, so it is not always possible....but rest assured Patrick has packed the tour and his route of the cemetery with very good highlights, and his selection of writers, artists, political figures, memorials and curious oddities is absolutely terrific. It is always a pleasure to join Patrick on one of his tours and he is one of my top favourite guides in HeyGo (I'm trying to do all his tours). Thanks Patrick! Merci!

I could only watch for 10/15 mins as I had to go into work, but enjoyed what I watched.
