A little bit about Celia SO, Paris – I was born and grew up in Hong Kong, and my passion for people led me to study hotel management. After travelling all over the world and working for a French hospitality group in global sales , I fell in love with Paris and a Frenchman over 20 years ago. The twin love affairs continue, and even today – over two decades later – Paris still surprises and charms me.
France is a beautiful country with so much to see and discover – not to mention revisit! – and so I spend my vacations with my family travelling around the country to learn as much as I can about French culture and traditions.
Travel planner and Paris guide – Following my earlier career in luxury hospitality, I then re-trained as a French government-certified Guide-Conférencier so I could share my love of my adopted country with others. The course takes over one year full-time studying French culture and heritage, and only fully qualified Guide-Conférenciers can take guests inside museums and monuments. I’m also one of only a small number of tour guides who hold a further qualification to take guests around the private apartments of kings in the stunning Chateau of Versailles. I guide in Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese) and English.
Let me help you with your next visit to France…
