      The tour was really interesting and fun. Anukool our tour guide took his time to explain everything and make sure we had a great time. He explained the history, old buildings as well as shopping, places to eat, etc. Highly recommend it if you love walking around old school neighborhoods with history.

      Our guide Anukool knew a lot and it helped us get a better picture of the history and present of Le Marais. We wondered around the urban ‘swamp’ of Paris and discovered beautiful churches, stories and streets that we did not know of. A must done if you like to know which place you are visiting. Anukool is the best

      Very friendly and nice guide, but not very knowledgeable. This could a suitable tour for someone not familar with Paris at all, but for those who know the city and its history - little value added.
