What you can expect

Rouen is a city on the River Seine in the north of France and it is the capital of the region of Normandy. Formerly one of the largest and most prosperous cities of medieval Europe, Rouen still has a historical vibe running through its streets and monuments.

Spend a day relieving history and join me as I show you important places where famous characters have set foot. Visit the pyre & the fortress where Joan of Arc was imprisoned. Hear all about her magnificent & tragic life from me!

This picturesque town has also been a great source of inspiration and by taking a look to its Cathedral you can realize why Monet loved this place so much. Go to a local market and enjoy a lunch break where you can try some Normandy specialities. Visit important local gathering spots like the 'Gros-Horloge', city hall & the courthouse.

This private drive offers a comfortable ride to and from Paris and an incredible scenic view through the French countryside. And to make this experience even better, allow me to personalize the tour around your needs.

Paris is my favorite as it has both the "touristy" and "behind the scenes" sides, which will amaze you and make you never want to leave this city! Come and join me discovering Paris and make your stay really memorable!"
