Joanna is a professional journalist and writer in addition to being a tour guide. She wrote about culture, music, cinema, theater and art for the Polish daily Polska The Times. One day she decided take a holiday from journalism in order to learn a new culture, get new experiences and new material for her documentaries. Her direction was the south of France. She spent a few months in Mougins, a fairy-tale town near Nice (It's where Pablo Picasso spent the last 12 years of his life.) She totally fell in love in the French countryside, lifestyle, food and scents.She wanted to learn more. She moved to Paris.Immediately she felt in love with the city. She participated in the history of art, culinary and perfumery courses here. She discovered most secret nooks and crannies of Paris. She wanted to share the mysterious spots in the historic heart of Paris. SO... she became a professional tour guide. She worked for the famous Bateau Mouches (the Paris Seine River tour boat company). Now she is available to be your tour guide and holiday planner. She has shown Paris to people from all over the world - and she loves to do it! She shows Paris originally, intelligently and with humor. JOANNA all the time explores the lesser-known parts of the City of Light. Thanks to this her notebook is full of Parisian addresses which you will never find in the tourist guides. She knows where to find the best french hot chocolate and where to meet friendly local's. She even knows the location of Serge Gainsbourg's cool looking house. She knows the secret shopping places (Monday is the best day) and great restaurants. For sure you will enjoy this when you see Paris with her. (btw - Ask her about the time she drove the big boat in the Seine River.) She speaks five languages, which is why the boat tour company wants her back. But she definitely prefers to give you a personalized tour around her favorite city. Full profile Leave a Review
