Who I am
Véronique here. My friends call me Véro [Vay-Row]
For the last two decades, in the United States and in France, I have shared my love of France and French culture as a travel blogger, French language instructor, public speaker and tour guide.
What I do
After 23 years in Seattle, WA, I relocated back to France in 2019; led custom private Paris tours and worked as a tour guide for Rick Steves Europe. In 2019, I spent over 100 days with visitors around Paris and France and had many adventures I have been thrilled to share with clients and on social media.
They have toured with Vero…
In their own words…
Veronique was outstanding. Her knowledge of the area was excellent, and she was very easy to talk with. She was excited about everything and that rubbed off on all of us travelers. We were lucky to have her as our guide. Dianne S.
Veronique was fantastic! She was a good listener and storyteller. I appreciate her narrative about her family history. Hearing about people’s everyday lives (as opposed to a recitation or linear account of history) gives more meaning and a better understanding of a country’s culture & history. Florence E
We are used to traveling Europe on our own via RV or car/hotel I plan. We decided to try a tour this time and Rick Steves is the only thing I’d consider. It was a fantastic choice. Veronique was an amazing tour director. The fact that she was born in France but spent many years in Seattle gave her the edge in handling a bunch of Americans in France. (…) She was just so friendly and personal. She made us feel like friends and not clients. Betsy C.
Enough bragging. You get the point: I know my stuff. I work hard (yet make it all look easy.) I am friendly. I will show you France and a good time.
In 2020, tour with Véro on YouTube, for free!
During this exceptional year, international travelers haven’t been able to come to France, so I bring France to them. As a virtual tour guide, I focus on doing what I do best: sharing quality, original content on Paris and France, via articles, photo essays, live streamed events and video guided tours.
How often do you get to look at France and French culture through the eyes of a native? Tour with Véro on my YouTube channel where I share favorite guided walks around Paris and la Belle France. There’s more: I live-stream throughout the month from favorite (and lesser-known) corners of France in my Facebook community (all Live tour replays available on YouTube.) Join the fun!
Coming soon: Zoom virtual tours
In 2021, I will be offering hour-long, interactive virtual tours on Zoom.
Join la Mailing List to hear the news first. Registration will be limited to 20 participants per session to allow for quality interactions.
