Our tour was conducted by Florant, who proved to be extremely knowledgeable and engaging. He took us to different areas of the Flea Market that all proved to be very interesting for each of the four members of our family. We were very pleased with how Florant helped us to understand the role that the St-Ouen played in 19th and 20th century Parisian society. His stories were very entertaining, and his recommendations of restaurants were excellent! A great experience! Highly recommended!

Marion was very helpful. I’m glad we were with her to get an overview of the market layout before venturing out on our own (I honestly don’t know if we would have found the actual flea market without her as there is a “pop-up” market before arriving that is full of typical tourist stuff. Worth the $

I enjoyed this trip very much. I was able to buy something that I carried back to U.S.-a statue. The booths are fabulous.
The guide was very nice too. I would recommend this excursion to anybody interested in art and antiques. Plan to do it again
if I get back to Paris.

This was a great tour, the guide gave us a great insight to the area and how the flea market became established. It was like going through an amazing live museum of Paris. If you are looking for something different and getting slightly outside Paris, then I recommend this for you.

If you have time to spare in Paris, check out this market. So many interesting finds in this place. Our tour guide was fun and engaging and he gave us a lot of trivia about this place. You will be on your feet the whole time so senior citizens be warned.

This was the highlight of my brief visit to Paris. My tour guide was excellent. Sorry if I butcher his name but it was something like Flore ?. He was very knowledgeable and fun. When he said he would show me things I'd never seen before, he was right! At the Colonial House, a decorative arts showroom based on natural materials including taxidermied animals, I was enthralled w the display and variety of beautiful things. I purchased a small bird from Australia and it will always remind me of Paris. I've seen a negative blurb about the shop elsewhere from someone who doesn't like stuffed things, but I found it fascinating. St Ouen is a maze, so I'm so glad I had my guide to lead the way. So much to see. I left very happy w my small treasures of antique photos, keys, shells . . . and a little, purple and black bird note, it's NOT on the CITES list, we checked. I highly recommend this tour. :-
