I came to Paris from Moscow to follow a master degree in law and I finally fell in love with French history and art. That changed my life completely. After I graduated I followed an other degree in what became my passion : the Art history and I became a professional licensed tour guide. I am passionate about the art history, particularly the decorative art, art of a table and history of gastronomy. I am working in the most famous sights in Paris and its area: museums, palaces, antic markets etc. I am always searching for interesting facts about the places I work in and mastermiding new tours. My work is not only about telling stories and showing people what they see in museums, but it is also about sharing our impressions and experience. Every day I meet people from all over the world and discover something new.
If your group is more then 8 people I can provide you with radios for you to hear me well during the tour.
