Paris Literary Tour
"[Our guide had] a deep knowledge of Paris during the period that the Lost Generation was creating their mark on the world. We had a delightful tour and thoroughly enjoyed our morning learning about Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Stein, and their lives on the Left Bank."
Hailing from the birthplace of American Liberty, Lexington Massachusetts, Laura crossed the Atlantic after graduating from Boston College with a B.A. in History and French to continue her studies in French history (with a specialization in the politics of the French Revolution) as part of New York University's M.A. program in French Language and Civilization. Her passions include history, literature, ballet, food, and of course, all things French. She loves sharing her experiences and all of the wonders that France has to offer with any visitors to the city of light.
A native of San Diego (USA), Gil graduated in Politics and English from Brandeis University and later earned two Master's degrees: the first in Public Administration from New York University, and the second a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. After earning his MFA and producing his first book, Gil moved to Paris for a Parisienne and hasn't looked back. For over a decade Gil has lived, written, worked, and led tours in Paris. His background in literature - both canonized and contemporary - combined with his understanding of the inner workings of cities have enabled Gil to tell his narratives as experiences and provide unique insights into Parisian life.
