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. :-

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!

This tour was such a great experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable and was able to joke with the group while showing us around and generally making the day fun and interesting. He delivered the history and background of the various market sections without sounding bored or rehersed and really seemed to enjoy interacting with the group and showing us little secrets he's discovered in the markets. We were shown so many wonderful and beautiful (expensive!!) things and taught how to bargin with useful tips etc. The meet point was a bit dodgy, and getting a taxi out of the area after the tour was a nightmare, but don't let that stop you!

We truely enjoyed Olesander (not sure if that's right-but I think I'm close) Meeting our tour guide at the metro stop I must admitt was alittle dicey, don't let that scar you. (Not in the best neighborhood) But once Olesander arrived-as it turned out, we were his only customers-it turned out to be a wonderful day/experience. Olesander knew his stuff. He took us to all the places that we had interest in. Explained the history and background of the flea market and explained to us how to bargain at the market. I highly recommend this tour, it gave us an excellent starting point and by the end of the day we were shopping like the French. I'm so happy we took this tour. My best regards to Olesander for a lovely day!

What a great tour! Our guide made sure to ask if anyone was looking for anything in particular and helped keep an eye out. Lots of good tips/suggestions. I'm not sure I could have found everything on my own, so was glad to have the tour guide show us around first.

This tour was most fun and interesting. The market has amazing items, but many are very expensive. Our guide Marie was so nice, natural, and a great host. My only comment was that outside the Market the area was sketchy and we felt somewhat unsafe, especially in the Metro station, where aggressive young males were trying to sell tickets. We walked down to the next station which was fine. Watch your pockets.

Our guide was a delight and very knowledgeable. Very much enjoyed our trip through both the old markets and the newer, more trendy. Great characters and much fun!

It was a pretty nice day checking out the authentic flea markets - finally to the correct spots despite having been there a couple of times and pretty intimidated by the dodgy people by the streets! I was the only tourist and Orlec was indeed an excellent guide - very knowledgeable and comical.
