I've been obsessed with architecture and European history since I was a child, but it wasn't until I was 27 that Paris made sense to me to live and work! Originally from the UK, guiding in Paris since 2017, I'm in the transition of becoming a moody Parisian! With this curiosité, Paris feels like showing you around my home. Alors venez nombreux !

Definitely worth doing. Jason was articulate, knowledgeable and entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed it especially all the extra information on the fire and consequent rebuilding of Notre Dame. Thanks Jason
