Let's try. . .
Camera's off, eyes and mind are open. . .
Curiosity and dialogue during the tour
and finally, maybe some keys for the long and Winding road. . .
When working, I always remember this :
I can lead a tour several times a week but it can be unique in a life for you.
I did hundred of tours since I started working as a full official licensed guide 8 years ago.
I had very different clients :
from 3 years old kids looking for reals dragons in a Castle to private tours with patrons in a privatized Louvre from a 3 generations family trip with people enjoying a life unique moment to young prisoners, reluctant to a guided tour and finishing it by running with me to see the more they could.
I mean, I learned to adapt myself to you and I love my work.
As an autonomous official guide,
I decided to create my own tours with ingredients I find important to compose with :
Curiosity, open mindedness, passion and confidence in you.
It is always a pleasure to dialog with you, to give you keys to understand are things are not so complicated, even if they appear to be. . .
Would you be my guests?
A Recent Review of this guide
Alexandre was an absolute delight to tour with. He was unfailingly courteous, had an in-depth knowledge of all areas of the Louvre, and engaged us in understanding various art works. I walk with a cane, and he took extra care to make way for us in the crowds and to find us a place to sit when needed. We would never have understood so clearly what we were seeing without his expertise. If there were a ten star rating we would give it to Alexandre. Please book a tour with Alexandre if you have a choice.
