When London Destination Expert Marie-Pascale Ragon went to there on an exchange trip when she was 12, did she ever imagine one day she’d end up living there? We’ll let her pick up the story…
“I’ve been fascinated with London, and English, ever since I was a teenager living in the suburbs to the south of Paris. I did a business school and my goal at that time was to settle in an English-speaking country, and now I work in event management, marketing and communications in London!
London is so open-minded, full of energy, things to do… The proverbial city that never sleeps! There is always something happening. You’re never bored here, there’s something for everyone.
I like wandering and discovering new places, shops, restaurants, galleries, magazines and art, I like vintage cars too, and actually used to race an English car! I sing too, and used to be in a band!
I’ve travelled further afield too, always preferring to take a backpack so I’m free to move around to discover things. I’ve done some beautiful trips in South America: Brazil, Mexico, Guatemala, Belize… But also French Polynesia, Canada, US, Ireland, Indonesia, Mauritius, Dominican Republic, West Indies, Morocco and much more.
When I travel, I like enjoy my time in the place, feel the ambiance… Which is why I like preparing my trips, getting advice to avoid wasting time and going to the wrong places.
That’s what I’ll enjoy doing for you in sharing C My Cities London, putting you in touch with people in my address book and making recommendations. And above all helping to make sure your stay is the best!”

“We flew like birds in Madrid with the teleferico across the casa del campo, gliding just above the houses and trees. Wonderful day!”

“My husband and I spent a week in Cape Town last march. Amber was my contact at Cmycities and I must say she was great helping us make our stay the most enjoyable possible! Amber is easy to get in touch with and is extremely reactive. She gave us tailor-made advices, as I had been in Cape Town only once, years ago (loved Green Market Square and the Truth Coffee).
I particularly appreciated her good tips (we were looking for running spots and found great ones at the Sea Point Waterfront) and addresses that no guide tour would have given me (girl-to-girl best spots like shopping in the Watershed) but also lots of groovy attractions for the two of us. “

“I had a wonderful last minute week-end in London two months ago… Cmycities London helped me find a hotel, select a musical and recommended the Saatchi Gallery, which was really for me an amazing experience. I can only recommend Marie-Pascale, for the personal touch I am always looking for when I travel… and I can’t wait to travel again with Cmycities! “

“We had the most incredible experience in Paris a few weeks ago! The trip was a surprise long weekend for our 5 year-old daughter birthday and it was just perfect! Her eyes are still sparkling, maybe from seeing the Eiffel Tower?! We managed to keep a day out at Disneyland as a surprise. It’s a family trip we’ll never forget! “

“I only had a short stay in Sao Paulo but I was lucky to have Andre to show me around and point me in the right direction. He knows all the good spots and fun areas, and you can definitely tell how much he loves his city! I can’t wait to go back and explore more of this incredible city!
I highly recommend getting in touch with him before your stay!
Thanks again Andre :)”
