A Tip for the Tour Guide

per month

You dig what I’m doing & just want to say thanks. I really appreciate it! Every little bit helps & the fact that you went out of your way to make this gesture makes you cool in my book. Although there aren’t any rewards for this tier, I look forward to sharing more Paris content with you via my public pages!

The Café Club
$5
per month
You love my weekly videos & think they’re easily worth $1 each. Maybe you’ve been wanting to buy me coffee to say thanks. That makes you awesome. In exchange, each month you’ll get these rewards:

-Extended tours just for you (via Facebook). Once each public live-stream is finished, the tour will continue privately for Patreon members as I share additional details, history, and picturesque views.
-Access to live post-tour Café Chats (via Facebook). Previously open to the public, now for members only. You’ll receive a link to a private Facebook group to 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. Between our private Facebook groups, our weekly Zoom chats, and the new Frite TV network of member-hosted shows, you’ll get access to a friendly & informative community of Paris lovers who share your francophile obsession.
-Hang out with us. Plan to be in Paris? We hold weekly, member-only meet ups at a local café and you’re invited. It’s a great way to socialize with other Paris fans, make travel friends, and have a drink with yours truly when my schedule permits!
-Discounts on Paris stuff. I occasionally team up with designers, artists and travel professionals to offer discounts to my Patreon supporters.

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:

-A PDF map of each live-stream 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 tour locations. Know ahead of time where the next walk will be.
-A discount on my real-life tours. Coming to Paris? You‘ll get 30% off one of my group walking tours. (Must be requested at time of booking & applies to your entry only. Valid once per calendar year. Does not apply to private tours.)

About

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 nine years ago. I’m a full time tour guide, photographer & content creator, and my name’s Corey Frye so I call myself A French Frye in Paris. You can check out my blog here.

I started a concept - the first of its kind - of using my Facebook page to broadcast live guided 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. Many episodes finish with a live video chat at a local café with me and often a guest. Think of it as a virtual tour of Paris 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 a day job I can focus on making more content, expand my ideas, and manage the ever-growing French Frye community.

Depending on your contribution you’ll get rewards that I’ve chosen especially for you: private extensions of live tours, exclusive blog content, PDF maps of many episodes, early announcements, a book club, and even additional private video tours. Browse the donation tiers for more details, and thank you from the bottom of my little quasi-French heart!
