Elisa | about the guide

Want to discover the main Parisian monuments and find out more about French history, but, short on time? This full-day private tour introduces you to many Paris highlights, as well as plenty of hidden treasures, while also providing invaluable advice on getting around Paris. Your day tour will start at the Louvre, the largest museum in the world, where you’ll learn more about masterpieces like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. Next stop? The Eiffel Tower for some serious photo-taking. Feeling hungry? Enjoy a typical French lunch in a chic Parisian bistrot near Notre Dame, before embarking on a guided tour of the Cathedral and Ile de la Cité (stopping by Sainte-Chapelle and the Conciergerie). The tour will finish with a flourish and a leisurely stroll along the prestigious tree-lined Champs-Elysées, past its designer boutiques, to the Arc de Triomphe. Your guide will then give you tickets for a Seine boat trip for the date and time of your choice, day or night.

Born and brought up in Rennes (Brittany), I decided to move to Paris because of the city’s amazing architecture, history and dynamism. I wanted to combine my passion for history, art history and modern languages. So, after finishing my art history and modern language degree, I prepared and obtained my professional guiding license in Saumur. I like meeting people from different backgrounds, talking about architecture and taking visitors on a journey through French history, as well as giving insights into modern French life. One of my favorite places to take you is the Basilica of Saint-Denis because of the incredible mix of architecture, stained glass, sculptures and history. My passions? Argentine tango, impro, accompanying young people on language stays, history and architecture.

Elisa was an amazing tour guide through the sites of Paris! She is incredibly knowledgeable and her passion for the city and it's history is contagious. Elisa moved us effectively through the biggest and best sites at the Louvre, Notre Dame, The Arc de Triumph, and several interesting and hidden sights in between. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with her and would highly recommend a tour with Elisa to anyone interested in learning about and touring the sites of Paris.

Elisa should be among your most popular tour guides, as she was fantastic. She first took us on a walking tour of Montmartre providing rare insight into all the artists who lived there. We then went to the d'Orsay Museum where her knowledge of the Impressionist period was fabulous. We then had lunch together at an excellent outdoor cafe. We concluded our tour by visiting Notre-Dame Cathedral. Elisa is a delightful and most knowledgeable tour guide.
