Although we have explored the Marais several times, we now wanted to delve deeper with a guided tour and we were very happy to have made the right decision. Ségolène was a great guide for us, showed us and told us exactly what we were hoping for. We were able to explore hidden corners and alleys a little off the beaten track, walk through many a hidden door and learned a lot. But the highlights were not lacking either. Thank you Segolène for the many stories you have told us. Hope we can explore a part of Paris with you again.

We booked a private walking tour of Les Marais. It was a very nice, interesting tour with excellent support. Marlene was professional and all the details about every building, courtyard, church we were allowed to visit were very exciting. Unfortunately, the time was too short because Les Marais have so much to show in terms of gastronomy. The next time! Thank you very much! We definitely recommend this private tour.

Great tour with a guide who impressed us with her knowledge

We got to know many sides of the Marais that we would never have found without this tour. From lots of informative historical details to beautiful backyards to the Jewish part of the Marais, where you can find the best falafel and other specialities. And best of all, there were only three of us together with our guide. Highly Recommended.
