Our Guides

Friendly France is an association of devoted, enthusiastic and professional guide-lecturers. We are graduates of the University of Paris. We are motivated by the desire of sharing our knowledge and love for our city, our country, its history and culture. We have been living and working in Paris for many years.
We highly recommend visiting Paris and wish that any visitor would be able to say, as French writer Jules Renard did, “A few letters more, and Paris becomes Paradise!” *. We will do our best for you to feel that way.

* “Ajoutez deux lettres à Paris : c’est le paradis.” in Journal 1887-1910, Jules Renard

What I love in this job is the pleasure of introducing people to the most beautiful city in the world and helping them appreciate its gems! Moreover I enjoy meeting people from other countries and discovering their culture, their vision of the world, as if I were travelling with them.

“I love Paris every moment of the year!” Does this ring a bell, the Cole Porter song! That’s how I feel about the city where I live and work. And I am proud and happy to share this love and interest with visitors, wherever they come from, and help them feel at home in Paris!

Paris is an exciting, dreamy, tender and surprising city! I will be happy to accompany you in the discovery of Paris, its treasures, history and lifestyle with pleasure, joy and perhaps a little sense of humor. And then I’m sure you will tell yourself (like the great Ernest): “I was lucky enough to have lived in Paris for a while, then wherever I go for the rest of my life it stays with me!”
