About the tour

Being in the famous Jewish quarter of Paris, discover the narrow streets, the old Art nNouveau synagogue, the typical local food where Ashkenazi and Sephardic community learn how to leave together, the rabbis in the street ... All in all, a very friendly and charming atmosphere. Patrick will also talk about the tumultuous history of the community from the middle age to the Holocaust.

Meet your local guide


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

Great tour. Lori and I were there for a full week a few years ago, and missed seeing so much! Looking forward to traveling in person while I still can.
