Alex Kaiser

In 2013, I found my calling by starting to work as a tour guide to reconcile my passion for talking endlessly about Paris and my need to constantly uncover the hidden secrets of the City of Lights.  Ask me about the latest techno event or where to find the best falafel in Paris; you won't regret it.
