Very very good tour and excellent guide. Learned a lot about the Marais district and what went on in the olden days and how it transitioned to the hip place it is today. A very worthwhile tour led by a charming guide (whose name escapes me. Please see that he gets proper credit.)
Excellent. Highly recommend. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable about the history of the area and was highly engaging.
We met our guide on a hot afternoon. Our guide Gill had a good grasp on French history, he was kind to stop in shady areas when giving his talks. If you want to have insight as to the make-up of this district this is the tour to take. mareeS.
The guide was very personable and because only the three of us she went the extra kilometer. It was fascinating to learn about this district of Paris. We sense that the younger indigenous French generation are ashamed of what happened to the Jews during the Nazi occupation. This is a great way to utilize your time when making a short visit.

Loved our guide's, Octavia, enthusiasm and knowledge of the Marais District. It was a great introduction to familiarize ourselves and we even stayed the rest of the day there AND went back another day.
Had a great time with Stephanie. The Marais, has so much history, even if bloody. Great to know more before walking around blind to what is really around you.
This was an interesting section of Paris to experience. The guide was interesting and knowledgeable.
We did this tour on our first afternoon in Paris and as we were staying in the Marais district it was great to explore this area and learn about the history and landmarks. Our guide Kit gave us lots of information and on later days we were able to find our way easily around the area and return to places Kit had shown us. We did try the falafels Kit and they were delicious.
Loved it! I had been to the Marais in the past, but the history provided by the guide was really good. Based on what he had told us, I returned a few days later and took the English-speaking tour of the Memorial de Shoah (the English version is given the second Sunday of each month), which was very well done. All in all, I strongly recommend this walk.
Stephanie is VERY knowledsgeable and kept it interesting! knew the places to go and where to stop for a moments rest Knows the history! GREAT GUIDE!!
Our guide was very good and it was very helpful to learn about the different communities that live in the bustling Marais.

The weather detracted from this tour. Paul, our guide, did an excellent job under some very trying conditions, heavy rain. Marais is an old and interesting section of Paris that we would visit again. The area also includes the Pompidou Center, a museum of modern art, the Hotel De Ville (City Hall), and a Holocaust Museum.
I loved this tour. Gil Stolz was an amazing walking encyclopedia of the area and we thoroughly enjoyed the mix of intellect and human story. Recommended.
An excellent tour with an excellent guide. He was knowledgeable and charismatic and I learnt a lot.
This was an excellent tour! The guide was the best! Great history, architecture, current event in the areas we were in and very personable! The most enjoyable tour of our trip! we loved it! Perfect!
What a wonderful guide, absolutely fantastic! Excellent walking tour in an area full of interesting history. Our guide was so knowledgeable and able to convery her information in an interesting way that kept our attention. She could answer any question posed and had a lovely personality .We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour which was one of the highlights of our visit to Paris.
Fabulous walking tour! Our guide was Steph and she was a fountain of knowledge and had a sense of humour to boot. We had a very small group (only 4) and she was able to answer any and all questions. She had a real love of the area and her enthusiasm was contagious.
Brilliant! Our guide was fantastic and we really got a great feel for the marais...brilliantly planned, would definitely recommend!!

Although my wife and I have been to France many times, we had not been to the Marais District. Bring your walking shoes and camera. Our tour guide was kind, well informed and friendly. She took time to show us around the history of this district. It was a good tour and strolling through the area was an eye opener to history and culture. We liked the tour and recommend it.
This was very interesting, The history and the culture we were exposed to was fascinating. It was almost too much for the senses and the brain. I would recommend doing this tour eary on your trip because you will want to go back like we did.
Same guide as above--fascinating--filled with interesting facts--very enjoyable.......
