Romain G.

Paris, Île de France, France

BONJOUR ! WELCOME TO TOURS BY LOCALS AND PARIS ! My name is ROMAIN.

I'm a native french guy who lives in Paris for 10 years now. I'm a crazy reader of everything relative to Paris and its history. I'm spending hours and days walking the streets and the monuments of the city. To become an expert of Paris is one of my aim in life. That's why I have so many anecdotes knocking the door of my mind and eager to be taled to any friendly ears. Indeed, I love to share my knowledge and passion for this protean City.

Graduate in History, I have been working for 5 years as an history and geography teacher in high school. I'm now a full time professional tourist guide able to speak english and spanish.
I have been guiding for few years for the RMN : Réunion des Musées Nationaux (most famous official institution which runs about 30 museums in Paris such as The Louvre). I'm now a totaly independant tourist guide, running my own self touring company.

SO, HOW CAN I HELP YOU, YOUR KINFOLKS AND FRIENDS ?

First of all, as a parisian lover I can guide you OUTSIDE providing you with WALKING and CYCLING TOURS in more than 20 districts of Paris : from central, high-ranked ones to unexpected peripheric others

As a licensed Guide-conférencier (lecturer-guide), I'm allowed to guide you INSIDE dozens of museums (The Louvre, Orsay), churches (Notre Dame) or palaces (Versailles) or any monuments of Paris and its surroundings.

As a driver (with insurance and license issued by the French government required to transport you). I can provide half-day to one week TRANSPORTATION in a safe and confortable 9 seater van (Volkswagen Caravelle). I will be happy to tailor specially for you a perfect itinerary through the FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE.

I can drive and guide you in Normandie, Britany, Champagne, the Loire Valley, Burgundy, Dordogne, Bordeaux or the French Riviera including highlights but also unexpected villages, gardens, rivers, restaurants, wineries, monasteries, spots for sports or anything close to our steps. . .
All kind of experience that make the french "art de vivre" visible, understandable, drinkable and edible !

Flexible, I will be happy to help you maximize your time during your stay. All the tours can be tailor-made at your convenience. So do not hesitate to ask ! I can adjust the tour duration, the meeting point, or anything else. I will be happy to provide you with personal tips for a good café-crème, a crusty croissant, a 5 stars macaron from Pierre Hermé, weird boiled frog thigs, a smoothy foie gras, smelly cheeses like camenbert, a hot soupe à l'oignon. . Just ask me !

Looking forward to meeting you in Paris or anywhere else in France to escort you. Have a pleasant day !

Romain

PS : During the high season, it's better to verify my availability asking me by mail before booking
