I will transport you back in time from medieval times to Paris in the roaring 1920s.

We will begin the Experience in the charming neighborhood of St Germain de Près with its ancient church and fascinating history .

We will stroll down the narrow streets that inspired Balzac and Gertrude Stein and see the studio of famous fashion photographer Man Ray.

We will see the cafés where Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir liked to frequent and we will see where F Scott Fitzgerald lived.

We will stop at the hotel where Oscar Wilde spent his last days and we will see the beautiful church of St Suplice and walk in Hemingway’s footsteps to the Luxembourg Gardens.

I am Irish and I have been living in Paris for 20 years. I have a degree in Languages & Cultural Studies. I am an absolute culture vulture and I love meeting people.

I live near Sacré Coeur and I also do a Famous Artists of Montmartre Experience on week days.

I love sharing the history, stories and anecdotes with visitors from all over the world and I take pleasure in revealing the secrets and treasures that Paris has to offer.

Having been on Eileen’s ‘Famous artists of Montmartre’ walking tour last year, we knew that the ‘Writers and legends of the Left Bank’ tour would be engaging, informative and enjoyable - and we were right. Eileen clearly has a passion for literature and a real skill in drawing you into that through vivid stories about writers and other celebrated Left Bank figures. We had been around that part of Paris ourselves in the past but with Eileen we gained so many fascinating new insights. The highlights for us were seeing Rimbaud’s ‘Le Bateau Ivre’ presented on a wall near St Sulpice church, and the magical moment when we visited the building where Gertrude Stein and Alice B Toklas lived. We managed to get in to see the garden in the courtyard and then Eileen played us a 1934-35 recording of Gertrude Stein reading her poem ‘If I told him’. An exquisite way to close the main part of the tour and we will long remember that. Overall then we’d highly recommend this tour and also Eileen’s Montmartre tour. Treat yourself!

What better way to spend an afternoon? Strolling around the beautiful latin quarter in the sunshine, discovering lovely places, chatting to interesting people, imagining what life must have been like for all the famous writers and artists who lived in this area: F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Oscar Wilde, Colette... Thank you Eileen for opening this world up to us and creating such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We finished the tour in the Jardins de Luxembourg, where it was great to pull up a chair and join so many Parisians enjoying their weekend.

Eileen gave us an absolutely wonderful tour highlighting all the literary highlights from Balzac, to Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. We learnt lots of new exciting human stories and gave us a reason to read up more on these writers. A great way to spend an afternoon in Paris and learn more at the same time. Eileen our tour guide is warm and friendly and we really felt her passion. Emmanuel and I highly recommend Eileen's tour.

We spent a lovely afternoon with Eileen, discovering the haunts of the famous writers, Balzac, Oscar Wilde; Henry Miller and Hemingway,. Eileen has many a tale to tell you about these writers across the ages, brings us back to those times so that we can imagine how they lived. We were very lucky to explore quaint streets and squares we didnt know even existed. Also the home of the photographer Man Ray was an interesting discovery along the route.
