Hello! I'm Alex and I love my city! That is why I have decided to share with you all its wonderful corners! Born in Paris, I have lived in this city forever. I studied history at the Sorbonne University and now I'm pursuing a master's degree in international relations. Thanks to a university exchange in Finland and a year of internship in Mexico as a French teacher in a school, I speak Spanish and English as well. I can't wait to meet you!

Trotz der eisigen Kälte haben wir sehr gerne zugehört und Alex hat die Tour die ganzen vollen 2 Stunden durchgeführt. Er ging auf alle Fragen ein, auch wenn einige sehr weit ausgeholt waren. Sein umfangreiches Wissen war beeindruckend ☺️

The tour with Alexandre was informative, funny and interesting. He took us to some main sights, but also to some places that we would never have found ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour!
