I can drive & guide you to the Champagne region for wine tastings, to the Loire River Valley to see the French Kings' castles of the Renaissance, to Normandy to visit the WWII landing beaches, to Giverny to see Claude Monet's house and gardens, I can also guide you to WWI battlefields, to Burgundy, Provence or Brittany and to Belgium sites like Bruges, Gand and Brussels. I organize historic tours of the old Paris districts (Latin District, Ile de la Cité with the Sainte Chapelle and Notre Dame Cathedral, Marais etc. ), tours to Montmartre and the Beaubourg Modern Art museum, to Malmaison Josephine's mansion. I can offer you tours "a la carte" /on demand, adapted to your party profile (families, couples, seniors etc. ) and specific requests.
I love history and arts, I love to show you the backstage of France, the heritage that we share with the world, the gastronomy, the culture, the beaches and the farms, the mountains and the traditions of this two millenium old country. I'll do anything to make your day worth ! :)
A Recent Review of this guide
Our family enjoyed this trip very much. Alain was extremely adept at adjusting to our interst level. We put this excursion high on our list of things to do while in Paris. It was worth it but the 3 hour + drive each way distracts from the experience. If you have or will have another opportunity to visit that part of France separately from Paris I would not Cram it in to a Paris trip. If on the other hand it might be your only opportunity, I would not miss it and Alain is the one to take you.
