As your guide to Paris, I will do my best to make your stay unforgettable and show you the most charming face of Paris!! The idea is to keep our group small in order to blend in with Parisians and the city. Thus, you won't be tourists anymore, but rather locals for a few days!!
I am Adeline, a 26 year old Parisian who loves Paris!!
Having grown up in the Upper Marais, a very creative, trendy and historic district of Paris, I'd be pleased to help you discover the cultural heritage, lifestyle, sophistication and creativity of Paris. Over time, I have aquired a deep understanding of parisian life that I wish to share with you during our off the beaten-track tours. I am also informed of cultural events in Paris (exhibitions, places to go out ...). Among the endless choices of activities available in Paris, I will select the best on offer for you and your interests.
I received a master's degree in 18th century French history from the Sorbonne, focusing my studies on the Grand Tour, an aristocratic rite of passage. Afterward, I deepened my knowledge through various experiences: with Monique Blanc, a curator of the Louvre Museum; with Franco Rendano, President of a Cultural Center in Italy; with collectors at the International Contemporary Art Fair; and at the Festival of Theater in Avignon, where I was assisiting the writer Olivier Cadiot and director Ludovic Lagarde ...
I also play piano, I like going to exhibitions, theater, opera and cinema, and I love skiing.
During my travels (USA, UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, Madagascar, Poland, Tunisia, Turkey, Tahiti, Mexico, Martinique...), I've often been welcomed by people in these countries. Through them, I lived my best experiences! They introduced me to local customs and rules of etiquette, and gave me great tips on where to go, what to see, and where to eat... So I know what it means to be in a foreign country disoriented by an unfamiliar lifestyle. Travel can be exhausting, but also so rewarding in the right company! A guide who is also frequently a tourist, is a fabulous way to save time, while recieving an excellent introduction to the customs and mentality of a foreign people.
