I am a curious soul who’s lived in the city of lights for over a decade now. I studied acting, with a focus on improvisational theatre, creative writing, and I'm also a linguist. I am addicted to Paris, in love with its history, and telling it is one of the things I love the most. Storytelling by nature, being a tour guide has been the medium I’ve found to bring my skills with my greatest passions together. These are art, comedy, people, history, languages, travel, and communication. I can't wait to meet you and take you on this journey!

Súper ameno, aprendes mucho de la ciudad y de su historia de una forma divertida. Se nota que Sebastián disfruta de su trabajo y hace a los demás disfrutar del día en paris. Tiene consejos para cualquier cosa que le preguntes. 100-% recomendable

Sebastián es muy simpático y se expresa estupendamente y el tour aunque es largo se hace dinámico. Sin embargo creo que el rato que dedica a empezar el tour, la autopromoción etc, quitan mucho tiempo. Faltaría un poco más de cosas curiosas
