Paris Bike at Night Private

This tour is unique because it is really private, it is mostly done with 1 or 2 people and we go to the details of the places to visit. Secondly, my way of showing it is unique, a traveler took the bike with me and told me that he had seen more beautiful than with the group of bikes he had taken in the morning and that I showed him more details The places I show at night have a unique way and a unique journey in the City of Light which gives it more magic. I can stop for a drink with the traveler or eat a pancake. Your guide, both professional and artist, will transmit to you the magic of appreciating the city, the most beautiful in the world!

Hemingway's Haunts in Paris

Hemingway's Haunts in Paris

star-5

Hemingway spent his formative years in Paris. Surrounded by fellow authors such as James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound & F. Scott Fitzgerald, he transitioned from struggling journalist to seasoned novelist. These men & women were known as the "Lost Generation", many of whom had suffered through the horrors of WW1. They flocked to Paris not only for artistic inspiration but also to find themselves. This tour will take you to the places that Hemingway frequented, where he lived, worked & partied. Along the way I share documented research on his life & exploits, archival photos of Hemingway in Paris, and excerpts of his work. From his first trip to Europe as a volunteer Ambulance Driver in WW1, to his final journey embedded with the American troops liberating France in WW2, I will share Hemingway's experiences in Paris, his lives, his loves, his work. We will visit his favorite bars and perhaps share a drink - you can even type a note on the typewriter he left in the Ritz Hotel.
