Spectacularly presented by Ellie, who was knowledge-filled, energetic and enthousiastic about her topic, the 10 of us met some incredibly friendly shop-owners, ate amazingly dellcious food and sweets, and had a tasting of a couple of wines at the end of the tour which we would never have known about otherwise. The Marais was already one of my favorite neighborhoods in Paris, but I learned and saw so much more in detail than I had ever known before.
