5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

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.

Our guide, Erell was extremely knowledgeable and very engaging. The market is very large and impossible to see in its entirety in one afternoon; Erell did a great job finding out what areas we would be interested in and then took us to each of those areas. We look forward to going back and experiencing the market with Erell once again!

I was a little bit afraid to go to this area by my own, but I am very glad I take this tour. They show me really nice furniture, vintage clothes, and I even bought a 40’s hat. This market is like a fantasy, you take several steps to the past and it is a most seen in paris.

Roberto was wonderful and spoke multiple languages so was able to cater to our group. Thoroughly enjoyed the walk through and it was very informative on the evolution of the area and the markets. He also takes care of his clients to ensure our safety. Highly recommended!

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2014

Quick tour; excellent guide - market is over-rated and not many 'market deals to be had'.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better November 2013

Not impressed with the selection of goods for sale at the flea market, lots of repetitive things
and garage sale quality items at alot of them. My tour guide, and her protege (sorry can't remember the names, started with a K) were great though! Very friendly and helpful. We were the only ones on the tour that day which made it nice and personal. Probably wouldn't do the flea market again.
