What you'll do

I propose to you an immersion in the parisian history with a commented tour in the hearth of the city: the City island, the latin neighborhood and the Chatelet district close to the most beautiful avenue of Paris: the river Seine.
These banks have seen the birth of the city of lights, french institutions and were the religious and university center of France and Europe.

I fell in love with Paris during my studies, which pushed me to do my job. In this sense, for the last two years, I have been working in the company "Les Vedettes du Pont Neuf" as a tour guide.

Where you'll be

Here, there is no big avenue! Let's visit the small streets of the Latin Quarter and the Ile de la Cité. I will take you to mythical monuments such as the Notre Dame de Paris, the Conciergerie, the Sorbonne university, or the old thermal baths of Cluny

Thanks lot to Alban to provide such a great tour for my family. He is professional, knowledgeable, showing great passion in sharing French art/history/architecture. Most of all, he was so patient and answered my 9-year old endless whys. Also, my father-in-law does not understand English. He was so considerate and gave us time to translate by arriving earlier than appointed time and being very patient throughout. I contacted Alban with very short notice (this early morning) and was a little bit worried about my “special” group. He answered my enquires almost instantly and gave us clear instructions of meeting point and how to get there - very easy to meet up. Definitely 5-star+ experience, strongly recommend!

パリに着いた日に参加する予定でしたが、時間が遅れて参加できなくなりました。 その旨連絡したら、別日程に時間を変更してキャンセルすることなく参加させてもらえたのでとてもありがたかったです。またAlbanさんの人柄もフレンドリーで話しやすく、パリの歴史の話が垣間見れました。ショパンやピカソの質問をしたときにそれらはまだわからないので縁の地を勉強しなくちゃと言っていたので、今後幅が広がるとより面白くなると思います。

Alban is a great guide. He is quite knowledgeable about the history of Paris and I can see he loves the city very much. Having a tour with a good guide always makes the place look differently and he does that wonderfully. It was only one hour tour but I learned a lot of new things about the city with lots of interesting anecdotes. I had a wonderful time discovering the city with him and I would definitely recommend his tour.
