A manageable city walk with a knowledgeable and cheerful guide. We are family with two children, 9 and 17, and the guide made a real effort to make them both and us adults interested. Insight into the city's history spiced with anecdotes. Highly recommended, especially if hosting one of your first trips to Paris. Take it preferably at the beginning of your stay.

The tour guide contacted us beforehand so that we could meet on time the next day, the tour was interesting, a lot could be told and shown. We were lucky enough to be in a group of two, so that our running pace and questions were taken into account.

With Sabi we had a great city guide through Paris. We saw and heard an incredible amount. It was really interesting, informative and very entertaining. We are very happy to have discovered Paris in such a small and personal tour. It was great.

Great tour. Very educational but also entertaining. Not only did we learn about the Jews in France but in intertwined with The history of France. Saw many Jewish sites along with not mainstream Paris attractions.

It was a very nice tour. The guide went out of her way to show as much of Paris as possible. Interesting information and unique moments of this tour make the trip unforgettable.
