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 !

We had a great tour of Paris with Thom. Despite the erratic weather, he kept our spirits high! He was equal parts entertaining and knowledgeable, and the route was perfect for a first-timer in Paris. Would 100% recommend him if you’re considering going on a walking tour in Paris!

We spent a great morning in Thom’s company learning about the history of Paris. The time flew by as we heard about former kings and queens, architects and artists and how Paris came to be the iconic city it is today. Thom was very engaging and really knows his history. Whe shared lots of tips along the way too to help us make the most of our stay in Paris. Highly recommend booking this tour - you won’t be disappointed 🤩
