My name's Jessica and I am originally from the grand old city of Liverpool in the UK. I moved to Paris around 20 years ago which I believe qualifies me as a Parisian now. I love Paris, with its history, its architecture, the way of life. Every day I discover new things about this city which make me fall in love with it all over again.
It was this love for Paris and the desire to meet people from all over the world that brought me to the great profession of guiding.
I started working in the tourism sector around 25 years ago. I had a wonderful opportunity to take music groups, choirs, and orchestras around Italy and France. This was an amazing experience where not only did I share my love of these countries with children and adults of all ages, but I also had the pleasure of hearing them sing or play in some of the most stunning locations in Europe: Saint Mark's Cathedral in Venice, the Basilica St Francis of Assisi and in the gardens behind Notre Dame de Paris.
As the Cole Porter Song says 'I love Paris every moment', there is always something special happening: festivals, sports events, concerts, art fairs, new restaurants opening. So as well as sharing my insights about the magnificent monuments and museums, we can also discuss what's happening in Paris today.
I studied to get the French National guiding license which consists of learning about French history, literature and art history, and thanks to this I can guide you in the best museums of Paris: The Louvre, Orsay, Pompidou, and in memorable monuments like Notre Dame, the Sainte Chapelle, Conciergerie and many more.
I am also passionate about contemporary art, so for clients who wish to discover more about the contemporary art scene here in Paris, I can customize tours along this theme.
I can't wait to meet you and share those special moments that enrich our lives when we discover new things and meet new people.

I am not a driver but the public transport system in Paris is an excellent way to get around the city.
