LA PETITE FRENCHIE
La Petite Frenchie is a tour guide company born from a true lover of the French art de vivre. This experience takes place in a family car, the traditional Citroën 2CV owned for more than 40 years.
The tours offer multiple authentic sightseeings of Paris that meets everyone’s needs: from an unforgettable first visit of the city of Love, to an historical tour for French tourist in the capital, to previous 2CV owners that want to relive their past, to a romantic escape for Parisians… and all of them at the same time.
The aim is to take you on a tour to discover Paris in a different way. Everything is there to fully immerse you in the French culture: a capital full of history explained during the tour, the charm and appeal of the 2CV, and a knowledgeable local guide that will take you in the Paris that he loves.
La Petite Frenchie is the story of a young French guy that quit his job from a big international firm to create a French local tour guide business. After travelling the world from his 18 to 26 years old, it was time for him to offer what he loved the most while travelling : discover the local cultures, histories, lifestyles through the contact of local people.
The idea emerged back in 2017, when he brought his old family car from the south of France to the big capital. When driving around the streets of Paris, tourists from all origins showed him a crazy enthusiasm. Why so much fervour? Why so much excitement?
At that moment he understood that people like so much this old vintage car, and decided to make the best out of it.
It took him 2 years to escape from his busy lifestyle, to live like a real Parisian from the 70’s and launch La Petite Frenchie in May 2019.
