Hello I have been working in Tourisme ,as a guide in Paris since 1999, to accompany groups of visitors to tourists attractions whether one day trips or longer visits, and give them information and insights that help them make the most of the experience. Being healthy with lots of energy and confidence are my positive points. Sightseeing advice, problem solving,of course being calm is necessary in our job. i have worked for, Eiffel Tower, number of big travel companies in Paris as free lance, Viking cruise and in the hotels as a receptionist for more then ten years. I went to school in London and got my school diploma from UK. It is important to feel motivated and inspired in your career. Tourism combines travel , culture, hospitality, and is a pleasure to go to work everyday for me, to meet people from all over the world.

Tour description

We will start our tour at the Eiffel Tower. I will provide you with a short overview of Gustave Eiffel as well as some of his other monuments. The 30 years of his life were enriched by a history full of new developments. I will give you all the key information on this. In this area there was once a massive and beautiful palace named Trocadero, the story of which you will find out.
From there we will walk towards the Champs de Mars Park, then onto the military school which the young Bonaparte attended. I will give you more detailed explanations as we go along.
Next we will head to the Invalides, the glory of louis XIV and the monarchy under Napoleon Bonaparte. This is where Napoleon's impressive tumb lies, including the tumbs of other political figures.
Our walk will continue towards the Army Museum, one of France's largest military museums, which opened its doors in 1796.
Finally, we will have the opportunity to get a glance of the statue of Auguste Rodin (the thinker). This statue is located in the nearby garden of the Rodin Museum.
At the end of our walk, if you feel like a snack and/or a drink, I can recommend you a stroll down the 'Rue Clerc', a nice food market street which is in the neighbourhood.

We had a very pleasant tour today, Neda shared information about the neighbourhood that we did not know and also made many recommendations for places for us to visit and for restaurants in Paris that would match our preferences. Thank you, Neda.

Je recommande vivement les tours avec Neda. C'est une guide très professionnelle et très passionnée par l'histoire de Paris. Elle est très bien organisée et on ne sent pas le temps passer. Ia prochaine fois que je reviens à Paris, je refais un tour avec cette guide dans un autre quartier c'est sur. Merci Neda !

Mrs Neda is a lovely lady, patient and attentive to people's needs. She gave us a very good introduction and went quickly through all that we would experience during the tour. Her manners were fun and thorough at the same time. She answered in details to all the questions we had and gave us some suggestions on where we could find out more about he history of this fascinating city. I was on the tour with my mother who is 81, but Neda made sure to consider the pace of the walk, keeping her in mind. That was nice. It was a very interesting couple of hours and we felt very relaxed in the convivial atmosphere set up be the guide. Despite the cold (it snowed a bit a few hours later), we did not feel the time passing by. Would highly recommend this tour, especially if you are interested in finding out more about Paris and it's history.
