Agathe - Paris Tour Guides

She grew up between Houston and London. She then naturally went on to stay in England for university and was given the lovely nickname of Baguette. This was a call of her mother country she couldn’t miss. After seventeen years abroad and many trips around the globe, she moved back to France and lived for the first time in Paris.

And what better way to discover the city than by being a tour guide? She has grown a passion of all the anecdotes around every corner of every street and loves to immerse herself back into her French roots and its rich history.

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!

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!!!

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.
