A thoroughly enjoyable walk with our great guide! We had lots of photo opportunities and lots of inside knowledge on the area. Thanks for a great afternoon topped off by a visit to a fabulous bakery!

It was a gray day with the Paris skies periodically crying on us. However, our guide Gil Soltz made the trip well worth the visit. We started at the Pompidou Center of Art (which looks like it's still under construction...with all it's 'insides' hanging out). We ended at the site of the Bastille. In between, we wandered the Paris streets, a warren of randomly connected neighborhoods. We lingered at the the Hotel de Ville, the city hall and heard of its many lives. We saw preservation efforts, sites saved, sites lost and replaced with character-less buildings, a church, a Kosher neighborhood, and an eclectic array of shops, restaurants, and architecture. Our guide lives not far from the end of our journey and his love for the area was evident. With our small group of four, it was easy to ask questions and have the tour adapted to our needs. We return to Paris in two week and plan to return to the Marais District to do further looking since we have been well oriented by our guide. Paris is so big, being able to take a 'small bite' like this is very helpful in appreciating why Paris is so well loved.

Very educational and interesting. The guide was well informed and entertaining. Small enough group that we would ask many questions and stop for the best chocolate croissant in the Marais.

It was a very good introduction to this interesting area of Paris. Our guide provided us with snippets of information about museums, sites and shops which we could go back and investigate at our leisure. I would recommend this tour to any first time visitors to Paris.

If you come in the later weeks of September you may find yourself with a very small group! I was the only one who signed up for the walk for my time, actually! This was really nice since I got to talk to my tour guide on a more casual and easy-going basis, and she gave a great idea of the history of the Marais district and where to go for really awesome falafels (Lenny Kravitz apparently goes there when he's in town) and some nice shops to hit up.
