Patricia R.

Neuilly Sur Seine, France

Born in Paris, and in love with my town, I am an Official Licensed guide registered with the Paris Tourist Office and the French National Guides Federation since over 15 years, I love my work and, feel happy when sharing my passion and knowledge with travelers.

Through my university studies made in Rome, I have been for over 20 years a translator working in english- Italian and spanish in a french state company.

With a further degree obtained in Art and History, I became a professional National tour guide 15 years ago and founded my own tours and event company.

Through the streets or monuments of Paris I enjoy reviving great historical figures and secret places, as well as introducing travelers to all Paris museums, such as the Louvre, Orsay the Orangerie, or Versailles without any waiting line!

I can propose half days or full days Paris sightseing by coach, in private car with driver, or just walking, to discover the highlights, among which my favourites are Versailles, Giverny, Fontainebleau or Vaux le Vicomte, not forgetting the Normandy beaches and Loire Valley Castles.

I enjoy tailoring my own tours to meet with different extra activities, such as :
- a lunch in a typical parisian "brasserie" - a wine or cheese tasting session in a restaurant, or shopping through the pedestrian streets of St Germain des Près.

Either for a first discovery of Paris or to deepen knowledge of the french culture I can take care of every aspect of you trip sharing with you my own passion.

A Recent Review of this guide

I am so grateful to have been in the capable, strong, warm, caring hands of Patricia. We had four children in our group and she engaged them in conversation and noticed their needs (bathroom breaks, sit down, safety). This was very appreciated. Her knowledge of art and history is phenomenal. We were mesmerized by her story telling of importants events and historical figures. I could not recommend her enough. I will be referring my family and friends to her.
