Your Guide

Welcome to Paris !
I’m Anne-Marie. I was born in Brittany in the western part of France, but as far as I remember Paris has always fascinated and attracted me. Almost 16 years ago, I moved to Paris and founded Détour à Paris  in 2009 to share with you the passion I have for “my” city.

My tours are tailor made in order to suit everyone and every occasion. Whether you are in Paris for the first time or know the city like the back of your hand: there is always a new Paris to discover.

There is a thing I always try to reach during the tours: a good balance between historic/artistic knowledge and tips from a Parisian you won’t find in guide books.

I am a local and licensed tour guide you can spend hours with in the Orsay Museum talking about the Impressionist paintings, and the one delighted to share with you a very special lunch on a Parisian secret terrace…

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” (Ernest Hemingway- A Moveable Feast)
