Let's imagine that I am that friend that lives in a city where you are visiting. I will not take you on tours, I will simply go for a walk with you. We can be as flexible as you like, concerning meet-up times, cafe stops and itineraries.
As a friend might ask, I would say to you… "what would you like to see?"
Paris is the city of lights, tell me how you imagine this place and we can find your Paris together.
I will tell you about the sights and what they mean to Paris, the stories behind the sights. I will advise you where to go, why to go and what to see. I can assist you in getting to know Parisians, teach you a little French and take you to see the Paris you might otherwise miss.
Paris is a wonderful city, and even though at first it might seem magical and almost part of a tale, it is in fact a regularly functioning city, with a very complex infrastructure which could be hard to pierce if you are new to Paris. So let me help you do that !
A bit about myself: Avid art-lover and history and art professional, I work with art sales and curation of exhibitions. I am citizen of the world - I lived in Moldova, California, The Netherlands and Germany before I decided to settle in Paris 8 years ago. Always hungry for new experiences and meetings with exceptional people. I speak fluent English, French, Russian, Romanian (and I can find my way around in Spanish ! ).
I hope to see you soon !

Gabriella was a walking history book on our tour. We chose to see churches, neighborhoods and local eateries. Then on to the other major land marks around Paris. We were a group of 9...she chose places along the way where we all could hear the information! 6hours well spent!!!

I can not take large groups into museums (as long as we're not more than 6 we are all right.)
