Geneviève

Paris, Ile de France, France

Bienvenue à Paris - The City of Lights! You are a business person with a spouse or kids to entertain, a foreigner on a short visit and you may not know Paris well enough!

As a native Parisian, let me introduce you to my city: I offer help, advice and tips to make you feel "at home" in Paris. I am myself an experienced traveler. I have lived in Boston, London, Madrid, Rio, Casablanca and Berne. I love meeting people and I know what is key to having a good time in a foreign country.

After many years working in marketing, event planning and hotel management, I decided to take off on my own and do something I really enjoy doing - making people happy during their stay in Paris, my favourite city!

With me, you will know how to get around however you please, by car, boat, bus, subway, bicycle or by foot. I can guide you on trips to the outer districts of Paris ("Ile de France"). You will know where to shop (everywhere from thrift shops to designer boutiques), where to eat (everything from a simple street crepe to a gourmet meal), where to go (to see exhibitions, shows, private concerts), how to stroll off the beaten tracks and discover the inner districts of the city with their major monuments, their lesser-known lieu, their must-visit museums, their places of culture and fashion. If you're traveling with children, I can help make Paris fun for them too!

I will make your trip a joyous and memorable experience. Upon request, I can take photos of you during the tour, arrange a classical music serenade, organise a cheese and wine tasting, deliver flowers and champagne. . .

Don't rely on your guidebook - ask a local for the best advice!

A Recent Review of this guide

Genevieve and her driver David set the tone for our trip and gave us an incredible overview of Paris. She is knowledgeable, fun, funny, and makes sure that you get to see what you want. I emailed that we had some difficulty walking so she got a car for us rather than a van, she took incredible pictures of us at the most amazing places, and she gave us great ideas for the rest of our stay. David has nerves of steel driving around the city! This was a wonderful experience. Thank you!
