Private tour guide Patrice

Patrice B.

L'hay les roses, France

I was born in Normandy, France, where I also studied.

After graduating in 1981, I served in the French army. My dedication to service led me directly to the tourism and service industry where I have been a guide for the past 10 years. And as a true native of France, I have the natural ability to reveal the history and culture of my country by creating memorable experiences for my clients.

I also bring with me a passion for art. I discovered the joy of painting when I was given a painting set on my eighth birthday - It was love at first sight! I continued to refine my artistic talent, under a Belgium artist in Antwerpen, while I traveled across Europe buying art and antiques. After many years of managing my own antiques and art gallery in Paris, I ventured to the United States in 1999.

Since then, I have returned to Paris and I balance my time cross-continent as a professional guide and a listed artist.

A Recent Review of this guide

Patrice B was our guide for the tour of Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle on Sunday, March 10th. We had a wonderful experience and we found Patrice to be knowledgeable and friendly. He has a great sense of humour and has a way of imparting knowledge without lecturing. We would highly recommend this tour and Patrice. In our group of five there were three people who had never visited Paris before and this was a wonderful introduction to just one of the beautiful sites in the city.
