Hi! My name is Wan and I am a Singaporean who has been calling Paris home for over 4 years now. I started running my own tours after living here for sometime because I wanted to share my experiences of in this amazingly beautiful but often misunderstood city, away from the usual touristy stuff. I was a former physical education teacher and while I still have a strong passion in sports, I would most likely be found wondering the streets of Paris these days discovering and experiencing this amazing city these days. So come join me and explore the city together."
