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. :-
EXCELLENT!!! Bruno was WONDERFUL!!! His professionalism and knowledge of the area is beyond words. THANK YOU!!! I highly recommend this tour...
The guide was well-versed on the market and historical background. The length was just right. We had a great time!
Romaine was fantastic - many thanks
The tour was wonderful, I'm so glad I booked it. The guide was friendly, very informative in history and art and made the tour a memorable experience. The market is so large and diverse it would be easy to be overwhelmed, the information from the guide was a huge asset for navigating the market on my own later that day.

What an amazing small tour with a fabulous informative bohemian tour guide, he loved the past and history of the markets and the eclectic items sold in these 100's of stalls. Managed to get my hubby a vintage copy of Edith Piafs songs, he loves that French woman. These markets are fantastic and shouldn't be missed as something different to see in Paris. Highly recommend
Excellent guide. Orleck Not sure of the spelling was very informative and a lot of fun. We gathered in front of a McDonalds with a few others and he walked us to the market. He discussed the history of the flea market, how to bargain, and really gave us a wonderful cultural overview. I would highly recommend this tour. If you stay to shop you will be for more informed. You can also treat it like a museum experience.
Olek? Was wonderful. Had lots of great info about the area and shopping safely around the flea market.
Found many beautiful items but many were above my price point. Some of the shops are almost like museums filled with beautiful furniture and art. Great day
I was the only one on my tour but my guide was fantastic! She took me to some really interesting shops and was more than happy to stop while I took a picture or wanted to look at something. After spending a few days trying to find all the tourist sites myself, it was wonderful to have a guide!
