I am a museum professional with two grown children, ages 25 and 22. My son is a pastry chef and my daughter is a recent college graduate. We all studied French in school. The kids have never been to a French-speaking country, so I would love to explore Paris with them. My son's girlfriend, who has been to Paris often and has a dear friend there, has volunteered to be our guide.
