Before she started leading free walking tours Maris was a publisher in Saint-Germain. Naturally she has now also become… a Paris guidebook author! Her latest publication is About Paris in Summer (in French – learn French quickly!).

When she is not sitting at a café in the Latin Quarter, or looking at the spire of Notre-Dame from her window (some people are luckier than others!), Marie can be seen walking around Paris – or leading a walking tour, Montmartre – from Moulin rouge to Sacré coeur in particular.

Beware, Marie “will have you wanting to live in Paris within 15 minutes.” If you join one of her tours, she will welcome you as friends and make you feel at home, but at the end of the day she will put a curse on you: “You’ll fall deeply in love with the city”.
