About me:

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...

My idea of a great trip is: very simple: A road trip in a van with my darling (15 years of happiness so far), my dog and some of my loyal friends through the great landscapes of a beautiful country during a sunny summer. I'd start with visiting France, there's so much to see, any region is gorgeous and always has delicious food and drink specialities...

I love my city because: It's a place full of history and stunning anecdotes, unsuspected parts to discover, surprises to reveal.. The architecture is wonderful, each door, building and street is beautiful. I feel lucky and privileged to be Parisian and to have such an interesting job. What I dislike is aggressivity and rudeness often part of French people's behaviour... I want foreigners to spend a great time in Paris and have a good experience with French population!

I have travelled to: London, Los Angeles, San Diego, Amsterdam, Germany, Geneva and the countrysides of Scotland, Switzerland, England and France.

4.8/5

Creepy but good
Fantastic tour! Our guide made it even more interesting by pointing out things to look at instead of just seeing a bunch of bones. Also got to see a few closed to public areas making the extra money worth it.
Can only give 5 stars...
Amazing!

The queue was 5 hours long... even their ‘skip the line’ queue was lengthy but this, we got there, met Leo and we were in. Absolutely brilliant!

Leo was a fantastic guide. She was able to accommodate my booking for my wife’s surprise Xmas present at short notice. She was very passionate and knowledgeable and took pride in sharing this with us, answering any questions we had. The rest of the group were great too, it felt as though we were among friends.

We’d recommend seeing the Catacombs to anyone but only if you do it through Leo. The tour time is also longer than the standard tickets. We got about 2 hours exploration time!

A memory that will stay with us forever. Thank you Léo! 💀🌟
Really cool tour
It was just my husband and i for the tour, so we had our own private tour. Leo was friendly and full of cool facts about the catacombs. Really great tour!
