    Matthew_H, July 2022
    We had a guy who was a teacher who did our tour he did an amazing job. He was really good about showing us places and things that we hadn’t seen yet on our trip. When we started our walking tour he asked us what we were interested in and what we had seen or wanted to see. It is a lot of walking if you want to get as much out of the tour as you can. I think we walked 5 miles just on this tour. I definitely recommend this tour.

    Private family tour in Marais
    Ivy G, July 2018
    I wanted to tour Marais but all the tours were booked so I signed up for a private tour for our family of 5. Our tour guide Lola was amazing. She is studying art at the Louve so was very very knowledgeable of the sites and history behind them. We had our 3 boys with us, 14-18 and Lola kept them all engaged. 3 hours flew by and we learned so much of this beautiful, historical city. I would definitely recommend this tour
