I'm a 36 Parisian girl born and raised in a village nearby Versailles.
I used to create and sell "love locks" on the famous lover's bridge "Pont des Arts" with my darling, Sed (we've been a faithful couple for 14 years).
This job revealed me a keen interest in working with foreign visitors.
When the government replaced the bridge's fences by windows I started to search for another job. I've been lucky enough to find a company's ad searching for a guide specialized in Catacombs. This is how I discovered this job.
Being impassioned by catacombs and underground heritage for 9 years, I am currently employed by several companies to lead guided tours of the Catacombs Museum. I also do day-tours of the Normandy D-Day beaches, the town of Chartres and its cathedral, walking tours of the cemetery of Père-Lachaise, themed-tours about the historical crimes and legends of Paris...

This is the dream job to me: I love meeting people from all around the world to share my passion with them.

I also love history, music, gigs, exhibitions, pubs, urban exploration...

Description

Cruising down the River Seine is the best way to avoid the tourist crowds and see the beauty of Paris.

Meet your local French guide Leo at the station who will tell you about some of the most iconic landmarks in the city and then give you the chance to choose which ones you'd like to explore during the 2 hour cruise. You'll then hop on and off together.

From the historic center of Lutetia, to the recently damaged cathedral of Notre-Dame, get to know how Paris emerged and the importance of the Seine in the city's evolution.

Depending on the weather you can bask in the sunshine on the boat's terrace - or seek shelter under the glass roof.

Your boat tickets will be valid for 24 hours (48 hours access on demand for 10 extra euros per person) which means you can stay onboard after the tour. You can hop on and off as much as you like at any 9 stations including Tour Eiffel, Musée d'Orsay, Invalides, Saint-Germain des Près, Notre-Dame, Jardin des Plantes, Hôtel de Ville, Louvre, Place de la Concorde.

This tour is available between 9am-8.30pm. You will need to arrange your preferred start time with your guide when you book.

Fantastic guide, fantastic tour
The catacombs tour led by Leo (Eleanor) is amazing. You get some history, some laughs and even a ghost story. The setting is like nothing I've ever seen before and Leos tour makes it more fun and less creepy.
I would definitely recommend this tour and this guide!
Catacombs
Excellent Tour, excellent guide Leo, so much information, anecdotes...
I recommend!
As it turned out, I had a private tour because 3 other people did not show up. So that was pretty great, and so was my tour guide, Leo (Eleonore), who was very knowledgeable and genuinely interested in the history and preservation of the catacombs.
Terrific Catacombs Tour
This was a very good tour! It was really cool going underground and seeing millions of bones and walking through the underground tunnels. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very worrthwhile.
A Must Do In Paris with Leo!
Leo's tour of the Catacombs is fantastic and if you have any interest in seeing them, this is the way to go! She was easy to communicate with when we had questions before booking the tour, with information after booking and on the day of the tour. We met her outside the metro station and she took us right inside - no line! (And the line had to be at least a couple of hours long on a very hot day). Leo spent 2 hours taking us through the catacombs, giving us the history, pointing out the really cool stuff and telling us great stories - she really knows her stuff! Don't hesitate to book this tour - you will love it!
