Karim H.

Carpentras, France

Hello, my name is Karim, a 52-year old French government licensed guide.

Having studied Art History at the University of Paris X, I was able to learn and appreciate my country. I received my National Diploma in Guide Interpréte in 2005. I'm a fan of art history, architecture where I can help the travelers discover the buildings soul and other artistic masterpieces.

Since 1992, I've dedicated my life to tourism by being a tour leader in charge of English and Spanish tourists at Excursions Parisiennes. In 1994, I became a tour guide for private tours which I enjoyed even until now. The flexibility of private tours is what I love where I can cater to my customer's rhythm and taste.

I'm a global citizen having lived in 3 different countries where I spent more than 3 years in Spain. I was also able to travel countries such as USA, Brasil, Uruguay, Vietnam, just to name a few. With this experience, I learned to be proficient in 3 different languages such as English, Spanish and French.

I am a wine and gourmet lover which makes it exciting for me to do the Champagne Region tour from different small winemaker to commercialized wine cellars. Also provide inescapable classical tours like Versailles, Paris Museums (Louvre, Orsay, and Fontainebleau). I also love long tours from Paris such as Loire Valley Castles, Burgundy Region, Normandy, Rouen & Honfleur, Fontainebleau and Vaux Le Vicompte, Provence, and Abbey of Mont Saint Michel.

Every tour that I offer can be customized depending on your interest. Let's make it happen. I hope to see you soon in Paris!

A Recent Review of this guide

We spent a great day with Karim touring three castles. His knowledge of history and art is very extensive and he is very passionate about it. Our day started at 7 am and ended at 7:30 pm, the long day was made pleasant by Karim's ability to inform and make the subject interesting. I would highly recommend him as a guide. Jim and Mary
