Bonjour from Paris! Thank you for considering this project; I think we’re onto something pretty special here and frankly I can’t wait for you to be part of it.

I’m an ex-New Yorker who married a French girl & moved to Paris 8 years ago. I’m a full time tour guide, photographer, and Paris blogger, and my name’s Corey Frye so I call myself A French Frye in Paris. I hope you find that at least moderately clever. You can check out my blog here and I hope you do.

I started a concept - the first of its kind - of using my Facebook page to broadcast live video tours from the streets of Paris. Each week I take online viewers from around the world on a walk in real time, pointing out hidden details & anecdotes that make this city magical. Each episode finishes with a live video chat at a local café with yours truly. Think of it as a virtual tour of Paris for when you can’t physically be in Paris

To get a feel for previous episodes head to my YouTube channel. I think we’re at the forefront of a new movement and I want you to be a part of the adventure. Are we poised to revolutionize the tour industry? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves...but yeah, that’s kinda the idea. 🙂

How can you be part of it? My weekly FB Live Video Tours are free and I hope to keep them that way. But as you know even free stuff takes time, effort, and planning. Your monthly donation ensures the project’s survival and gives me freedom to expand it. In real terms it means that instead of being at my day job I’ll be able to make more videos, refine my content, and manage the ever-growing French Frye community.

Depending on your contribution you’ll get rewards that I’ve chosen especially for you: exclusive blog content, PDF’s of each video tour, early announcements, input on where I go next, even additional private video tours. Browse the donation tiers for more details, and thank you from the bottom of my little quasi-French heart!

You love my weekly videos & think they’re easily worth $1 each. Maybe you’ve been itching to buy me coffee or a new scarf. That makes you awesome. In exchange, each month you’ll get these rewards:


-Access to my Live Post-Tour Café Chats. Previously open to the public, now they’re for Patreon members only. You’ll be sent a link to a private Facebook group to have access to these broadcasts and their replays. 

-Exclusive blog content. Come to this Patreon page for special photos, blog posts, tips & recommendations and other content I’m not posting anywhere else. Your own private French Frye feed as a reward for your generosity.

-Join the community. Get access to a second private Facebook group where a friendlycommunity of Paris lovers share travel tips, answer questions, and discuss their francophile obsessions.

-Hang out with us. Coming to Paris? We hold weekly, subscriber-only meet ups at a local café and you’re invited. It’s a great way to socialize with other Paris fans, make a few travel friends, and have a drink with yours truly when my schedule permits!

You’re totally invested in this idea and want to see it survive & thrive. You’re happy to toss me a few dollars for each weekly video as a thank you. Yay! In addition to the café chats & exclusive content above, you’ll get tons more great stuff:


-Extra live video tours. You‘ll occasionally be invited to a join an exclusive live video tour - viewable only by upper tier supporters.

-A PDF map of each video tour. After each walk get a record of where we went & what we saw. Perfect for planning your own walks thru Paris!

-Advance notice of video tour locations. Know ahead of time where the next walk will be.

You don’t just love Paris - it’s a religion. And I‘m totally with you! You think this project is a noble quest and that it deserves as much of my attention as possible. You’re also, by the way, my hero. You’ll get all rewards above plus:


-Content control. I’ll post occasional polls just for your group, so you can help decide the location & theme of future episodes.

-One-on-one time with me. Have a private Skype/Facetime/Hangout with me to ask questions, help plan your Paris visit, even practice your French if you want.

-A bigger real-life tour discount. Coming to Paris? As a gesture of my appreciation you’ll get 50% any of my group tours. (Must be requested at time of booking; applies to your entry only)

-VIP video content. In addition to exclusive blog posts and photos I’ll post small videos of details, stories and recommendations I find around town. Perfect for the true Paris addict - basically your own private French Frye vlog.

-Discounts on future special events. When this project evolves to the point of paid events or products, you’ll be sure to get a hefty discount for your loyalty to the project.
