About Flora Goldenberg & Paris Guided Tours :
Born in Paris, I grew up in the heart of this city, in Le Marais neighborhood. Everyday, I go around my city and take pictures of it. Walked it, biked it, read about this fascinating endless City and I am still discovering it every day. I have a true passion for the city of Paris.
I have traveled a lot myself, which has given me a truer perspective on my own city.
After studying History and Art History at the Sorbonne University, I decided to become a guide in Paris and got my license. Why? The city of Paris is my passion and I couldn’t think of a better way to reveal everything Paris can offer. History, museums, monuments, gourmet, fashion…
This city fascinates me !
Oh, Well … I must confess that my mother, who is a guide in Paris since 29 years, transmitted me the pleasure of sharing and exchanging. And, now, I just can’t get enough of searching for new places, restaurants and new stories! So, I design new tours, as a hobby, and customize them according to everyone’s wishes, themes, walking distances and their Art knowledge …
I love Paris when I go to work. I love it in the morning when I do sport. And by night for its different atmospheres. Still, the most amazing thing to do in Paris is its museums. They are numerous and rich in History and Art, and the biggest in the world !
Let me Say : I can’t wait to enjoy together an unforgettable guided tour in Paris !
with me, the Paris Guided Tours are in French or English.
