We did the guided tour along with our guide Paul. He was very knowledgeable and sweet. It was a small group tour of just 3 people so each one of us got enough attention. We were taken to Aux Merveilleux, Pierre Herme, and Maison George's for some amazing french Pastries. Wish we could taste more than 1 piece each.
Excellent tour of Le Marais. Outstanding tour guide makes all the difference. Lots and lots of walking , so wear comfortable shoes. Our guide, Gil, took us to all top notch stores for samples of pastries, candy, cheese and we ended at a bistro for snacks and wine.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! We were a small group - just the two of us - and Arthur treated us like old friends. He gave us lots of insights and background of the Marais district. The pastries, wine and cheese were really delicious!
Wonderful walk thru the Maria’s district..weak link was the wine and cheese..but even that was very good...it’s just that the rest was sooooooo very good, excellent!
Pastries, history, walk...wonderfull
Guide knew he stuff..met us on time. Accommodated allergies, helped us find way to next thing we were doing
This tour was amazing! I really felt the local touch, our guide has been amazing in making us feel like true Parisian and by the end of the experience we were all very happy about the things learnt during this activity. He shared with us a lot of information and brought us to see the best food treats spots in the Marais. I cannot recommend this tour enough, thank you!
This was an excellent tour. The guide was excellent, fun, and really kind. We were able to taste a number of delicious pastries and find some really cool shops. Afterwards we had a lovely and relaxing wine tasting. I love desserts, but sitting around with the group having wine was the perfect ending to the tour. The hosts were very kind and offered us wine and a nice meat and cheese trays. Would do this again!
I definitely recommend this tour! Although it rained and snowed on the day of our tour, it was still a lot of fun. All the people in our group got along, stayed positive and pushed through (despite of the cold)! Ellen was fantastic also! She was very personable and brought great energy to the group
Our guide, Arthur, was so fun and interacted with everyone really well. He guided us around the narrow streets, stopping for all of the planned treats and a few extras if someone wanted to make a purchase. I don't know if the other tours include aux Merveilleux and Pierre Herme, but they are worth choosing this tour over any other similar one. The pastries and macarons are amazing, but the history and tour of the Marais are just as enjoyable. We ended in a little cheese and wine shop that looked like they made the shop by roofing over a small gap between buildings. The wine was excellent and generous, as you'd expect in Paris!
This tour was amazing! I'm so glad that we decided that this was the way to find out of the way places that we wouldn't have found on our own. Not only did we sample out of this world pastries, try different cheeses and sample wines, but our wine shop owner gave us a great overview of where the wines came from and why certain grapes were grown in certain regions! The small group lets everyone bond and we became great friends by the end of the tour. Our guide pointed out so many architectural features and historic insights along the way that we learned as we ate. The food was fabulous! We would do this again.
