This was fun and our guide was lovely. I'd always wanted to see the Market, and in fact bought a small canvas and a bowl from Italy. I could have spent a few days there. It's not in the greatest area of the city, so I probably would not do this on my own- I was glad to be with a group! although I did stay on later by myself with no issues
Romaine was fantastic - many thanks
Wasn't very engaging
I loved this!! It was everything I was hoping for. Our guide, David, went above and beyond to help us with deals and translation. I would love to go again!!!
The tour was wonderful, I'm so glad I booked it. The guide was friendly, very informative in history and art and made the tour a memorable experience. The market is so large and diverse it would be easy to be overwhelmed, the information from the guide was a huge asset for navigating the market on my own later that day.
A lt of good tips on shopping the market and a good overview of the different markets.
I enjoyed the flea market and the guide was very knowledgeable. I received a lot of history connected to the flea market. Felt like we got an inside view.
What A Disappoinment. Guide Was Good Until Later Comers Arrived And My Husband And I Were Ignored The Rest Of The Tour. Very Very Disappointed It Was My Last Day In Paris....
The was a great tour and our guide was very nice. He spoke great English and really knew the area well. He showed us all over the flea market and took us into different areas. He was willing to negotiate with sellers and made sure we understood the dynamics of the flea market. The flea market is located in a bad area and we felt safe with him.
What an amazing small tour with a fabulous informative bohemian tour guide, he loved the past and history of the markets and the eclectic items sold in these 100's of stalls. Managed to get my hubby a vintage copy of Edith Piafs songs, he loves that French woman. These markets are fantastic and shouldn't be missed as something different to see in Paris. Highly recommend
Excellent guide. Orleck Not sure of the spelling was very informative and a lot of fun. We gathered in front of a McDonalds with a few others and he walked us to the market. He discussed the history of the flea market, how to bargain, and really gave us a wonderful cultural overview. I would highly recommend this tour. If you stay to shop you will be for more informed. You can also treat it like a museum experience.
Olek? Was wonderful. Had lots of great info about the area and shopping safely around the flea market.
Found many beautiful items but many were above my price point. Some of the shops are almost like museums filled with beautiful furniture and art. Great day
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
Pat and Gary
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!
