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.

Great experience exploring Paris catacombs with a local guide
My son and I really enjoyed the tour with our guide Leo (Eleonore). Time went by so quickly, it felt we were down there for few minutes rather the 1.5 hrs. Leo was casual and easy to talk to. She is clearly passionate about the topic and waved in number of stories from the past and current about the 'cataphiles', people who explore co called "negative Paris".
We are glad we choose this group tour. We went inside exactly at the scheduled time vs waiting in the line and Leo's personalized commentary made it very engaging. We also had an access to parts open to groups only.
In conclusion- a bit pricey but we are glad we did it. Great memories.
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...
