After graduating in 1981, I served in the French Army (Gendarmerie). 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, 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 and spent about 14 years there.
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 was knowledgeable, humorous, courteous and respectful. It was fun having him as a guide and he helped find us to find our way to our next destination even riding on the bus with us. I would use him again st this or other locations.
