11 years ago I moved to Paris. This was after my Master's degree in political science and my goal was to become fluent in French. I've always loved the language and the culture already since I was 11 years old and had my first French class.
I thought improving my French would help me in my career as back then I wanted to work in a human rights NGO.
The universe decided differently though. My short stay in Paris became permanent because I fell in love with this beautiful city. I stayed and concentrated on other things that I am passionate about: history, art, biking, teaching and discovering every quaint corner in this city:)
That's when I started to work for a bike tour company. I got such good feedback from my customers and they encouraged me to start my own tours. So I explored more and more of Paris and it's surroundings, went a year to university and got my French tour guide licence so I can guide in museums and monuments and skip lines. And after all these years I still enjoy this job a lot:)
So come and join me on my Paris tours! Forget about carrying your guidebook around and trying to find your way on the map and missing a lot along the way. Let me take you around and plan a wonderful day for you.

Susanne knows a lot about the French history and the evolution of art. She knows the little stories behind the paintings which made it all the more interesting. Loved visiting D'orsay with Susanne!
