Alberto - Paris Tour Guides

Alberto

After studying music in London, travel hungry Alberto went to live and work in Cambridge as a tour guide on the River Cam and loved it. But summer only lasts 3 months every year in that town so he decided to go back to his native country Mexico to work on its sunny beaches as a tour guide/musician. Somehow, beautiful destiny got its way and in 2010 brought him back to Europe where he became fascinated with French culture, history (and food of course) and is now giving inspiring tours of Paris. If you’re lucky you can also catch him singing in local Paris bars from time to time!!! See you soon!!!

Alexandre - Paris Tour Guides

Alexandre

Born with an identity complex from the start, being a child of an American mother and a French father but raised in Paris, I realized my duty in life was to do my best in changing the mean, grotesque and duly deserved reputations of Parisians by sharing my love for my hometown (and its secrets). Between the history, the art, the food and the hidden corners of one of the densest cities in the world, I have enough to keep me entertained and hopefully plenty of curious souls I can share my never-ending discoveries with. À bientôt!

Alan - Paris Tour Guides

Alan

Two years ago Alan graduated from The University of Arizona and was completely confused about what he would do with a degree in creative writing. So he did what anyone would do. He sold his car and bought a ticket to New Zealand. Since then he has been wandering around the world, working in each country just to save up enough money to go to a new one. Every time he promises himself he will settle down he gets distracted by a new city and all its potential. He is now in Paris and so far nothing has been able to take his attention off the historical monuments, the beautiful language, and yummy food… mmmm steak and cheese crepes… smothered in mayo…

Adam - Paris Tour Guides

Adam

Adam was born and raised in New York City.  After finishing High School he went up north to Montreal, Quebec for University, remaining in the French-speaking province for 5 years.  That’s where he developed a passion for everything French and francophone – the language, the literature, the art, and of course the food.  It was only natural that he’d end up in Paris in 2010 to pursue one of his other interests: music.  He’s excited about sharing his love for Paris and his love for traveling with other visitors to the city.

Asa - Paris Tour Guides

Asa

Born and raised among the yellow rapeseed fields in the south of Sweden, Åsa always knew that there was a world beyond the Baltic sea for her to discover. After spending her school years at international schools she found herself being something in between British and Scandinavian. With this mixed identity she began a journey through Europe that has taken her from the sun drenches beaches of the Azores islands to the rainy hills of Scotland and almost by coincidence she found herself in the French capital. But it only took one walk along the Seine and one bite of a crepe for Åsa to fall madly in love with Paris. A love that grows stronger every day and that she likes nothing more than to share with visitors to the city!

Connor - Paris Tour Guides

Connor

I grew up in a very small Scottish town called Crieff, and having done almost every job imaginable in a small town, my love for adventure pushed me to see what the world had to offer. After developing a passion for languages, history and new cultures I became a tour guide in the beautiful city of Madrid, which proved to be a truly incredible experience. However it wasn’t long before my thirst for new adventures caught up with me and I soon found myself walking the gorgeous streets of Paris, where every building, statue and monument has a story to tell. I developed a passion for every aspect of French life, history and culture, and having explored almost every tour the city has to offer I love being able to share my experiences and tour with the best.

Dramatic stories, fun facts and useful tips are some of the many aspects you will learn along with Filipa on the walking tours of Paris!

Inga - Paris Tour Guides

Inga

I couldn´t wait finishing my high school in a little Bavarian town in the south of Germany. Ready to explore the world, I studyed Arts and Philosophie in Vienna, gave exotic cooking lessions, found my joy as an actress, gave english lessions in Tansania, sang in Jazzbars, practised Yoga in India, etc. Despite all theses beautiful places in the world, it seems to keep me in Paris. After six years of living here, I can call myself an insider. And it is still so inspiring to me! The classic and historical site of Paris as well as the modern scene. It´s the city of food and wine, of fashion and arts and it has its amazing historical background. Working as a tour guide allows me to share my passion for this city.

Justine - Paris Tour Guides

Justine

Hello fellow travelers! My name is Justine Arden, I was born in Rio de Janeiro, was raised in Rome by an Australian father and a Belgium mother. I moved to London when I was eighteen to major in a History degree. I later came to Paris (two years ago now) to dive into an acting career. Despite the identity crisis I have going on, or maybe because of, I am an absolute lover for travel and understanding different cultures. Paris has completely charmed me, and I have gotten to know it very well in these years through the eyes of history, theatre, art, loosing myself in the streets and meeting some of the most eccentric and interesting people. I ask for nothing more than to be able to share these experiences, and this is why I choose to be a guide to you. I have been around lots of parts of the world with my backpack, from Asia to the Middle East to Africa and my favourite parts were always meeting people and having to hear their experiences in each country. So when you come to Paris I want to be the person who will make you discover the wonders of this town, of its people and its numerous crazy anecdotes, hoping that you will leave this city with the only desire to come back again. See you soon for some adventures in the city of Paris!

Robert - Paris Tour Guides

Rob

Born and raised in the south-east of England, Rob has been learning languages and discovering new cultures for as long as he can remember. Having already spent six months in Chile, he took an undergraduate degree in modern languages at the University of Nottingham. During this course, he spent study and work placements in France, Spain and Brazil. Following five years back home in London, in 2013 the temptation to leave his country and start exploring again became too great. He’s now to be found travelling the streets of Paris on a vélib bike, finding out more every day about the city’s history and culture, while also taking in as many football and rugby matches as possible at the local bars.

Roberta - Paris Tour Guides

Roberta

Roberta calls herself an Anglo-Sicilian. She was born in a small town in Yorkshire and was raised on the slopes of Mt. Etna in Sicily where she did fire dancing in a circus group in her free time. When she finished school she decided to rediscover her origins and go to university in York, in England to study History of Art. After taking a module on the representation of the Virgin Mary in France she became fascinated by French language, culture and art. When she came to Paris the city inspired her so much she could not stop taking pictures! It was at that point that she realized that she had to be a tour guide in Paris so she could share her views on its wonderful and magical history.

She loves giving energetic and lively tours while being as informative as possible because for her there is no city more enlightening than the City of Lights!

When not giving tours Roberta is busy doing theatre, taking photos and taking advantage of the free wine at gallery openings.
