Heidi

Hello! I’m Heidi – Paris tour guide. I made the move over to Paris from London in search of a new adventure in the French capital where I began guiding. Through guiding my love for Paris blossomed; I developed a fascination for all things French and a genuine joy for what I was doing.
In the past, Paris has been likened to a female muse, inspiring the many great male artists and writers who made their names here. But what about the women who lived here? What was Paris for them? Isn’t it time we heard their voices too?

Location Information

The tour begins in front of Saint-Germain-Des-Prés church, right outside the Saint-Germain-Des-Prés metro stop, which is served by the number 4 line.

From there, you’ll explore one of the most characterful neighbourhoods in the city, and at the end of the tour your guide will be happy to give recommendations on what to do, and where to go, next.
