Meet your local guide


I was lucky enough to travel the world with my job, discover different cultures and meet incredible people. I enjoy sharing the love and passion I have about my own city, Paris. Its monuments, its history, its gastronomy, its culture, and all of its little secrets. I can't wait to share all of these with you!

Patrick has been guiding since Sep 2020

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Paris with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and amazing guide.

The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Paris. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

I found it quite difficult to understand Patrick's accent - I completely understand that he had to wear a mask, but it made it harder for me to follow his tour.

Thanks for the wonderful Notre Dame WW2 tour. It was a pleasure following you through the streets of Paris. It was all well prepared with some personal stories that made it even more lively. Merci and thank you, Patrick ⭐️

This tour was fabulous, and Patrick was amazing! I love these walking tours from Virtual Trips. Since we cannot travel too far, it is lovely to walk through these cities, with a guide, and experience these cities as if we were there! I have been to Paris about six times, and I always learn something new. Thank you! :)
