I was the only one on my tour but my guide was fantastic! She took me to some really interesting shops and was more than happy to stop while I took a picture or wanted to look at something. After spending a few days trying to find all the tourist sites myself, it was wonderful to have a guide!
This was my favorite tour that we did in Paris! The young lady that took us on the tour was terrific and very knowledgeable. There was sooo much to see. I found some terrific, must have, pieces! I wish the tour guide could of stayed with us longer. It's a bit intimidating without someone who knows their way around. Also, the flea market is located in a bad area, and we had a hard time finding our way back to the metro station on our own. Nevertheless, I would gladly do this tour again!
Very interesting tour with a great guide. An amazing place which you will probably want to stay on at after the tour is finished!
the flea market was absolutely huge - one mile square - and it helped to have a guide get us there. But after 10 minutes, there was no value in a guide.
it was ok
We enjoyed our time at the St Ouen markets. Our guide made it interesting with his knowledge and added humour with his anecdotes.
Tour went off without a hitch and was very helpful. We would have missed a major kind of hidden portion of the market had it not been for our guide. Well worth it.
Quick tour; excellent guide - market is over-rated and not many 'market deals to be had'.
Fascinating tour. Just a group of four of us which made it a more personalised experience. The sights and sounds, the characters of the vendors, treasures galore made it all truly Parissienne!! You get a wonderful sense of history. Well worth the trip

Excellent, our guide gave us a well explained commentary.
Guides were very informative with tips on bargaining. Gave it a three as merchandise was very expensive though lovely.. So not truly bargains. Learned so much about french antiques
Based on what I read the bargain hunting tour was for a guide to find out what we wanted to buy and take us to the dealers at the market. Instead the guide gave us a history of the flea market and toke us to the various markets. I do not believe it was the guides fault, he did a fine job on the history. That's not what I paid for!
This tour was such a great experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable and was able to joke with the group while showing us around and generally making the day fun and interesting. He delivered the history and background of the various market sections without sounding bored or rehersed and really seemed to enjoy interacting with the group and showing us little secrets he's discovered in the markets. We were shown so many wonderful and beautiful (expensive!!) things and taught how to bargin with useful tips etc. The meet point was a bit dodgy, and getting a taxi out of the area after the tour was a nightmare, but don't let that stop you!
The tour guide was very good; however, a group that had missed their tour the day before joined our tour which made it too large. Otherwise, the tour guide was very good.
This was interesting, but Monday afternoon really isn't the time to see the market if you want to shop. Although not crowded, many of the shops were already closed and we weren't left with much time to shop
