    The tour started off ok, and the guide was very nice. We looked at various buildings and heard about the history and architecture of each. At around the one hour mark we were in a kind of garden somewhere when the guide asked if we'd like some time to explore by ourselves. We found that a little strange given that it was supposed to be a two hour guided tour so we said no we'll keep going. From that point on we seemed to just wander around aimlessly back-tracking at times, occasionally she would point out some minor thing here or there. After about three quarters of an hour of this wandering the guide said that was it, did we need directions to anywhere in particular like the nearest metro. We both thought this tour was a little lacking in content. We did a similar tour the day before of the latin quarter which was packed from start to finish and probably went longer than advertised. So in comparison this was definitely the lesser of the two. For us the best part of this tour came after it was finished when my wife and i backtracked to a little leather shop we had passed during our wandering and we bought two really nice leather coats. Did i mention the guide was nice?

    TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback. Our tours are historical tours, very different from many other tours available in Paris because our guide are always specialised official guides. We never just "point things out", we always tell the stories behind the beautiful buildings and things we see on the tour path. We're unsure what you might have been expecting, but are sorry to hear this was not the tour for you.

    This walking tour led by Claudia was wonderful. Our group consisted of my husband, son, daughter-in-law, and me. Claudia was very well versed in the history and architecture of the Marais area. We saw the Jewish Quarter, the Vosges, a portion of the old city wall, and other unique areas. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it.

    One of the best tours we have taken. Our guide Claudia was very informative. Even though we have been in the Marais many times, we learned so much from her.

    Our tour guide had a very good knowledge of the area we chose and the history and architecture. However it was not as we thought as we did not enter any of the places we were taken to - we could only stand outside. Disappointing.

    Hello Melinda, thanks for your review. As indicated in the description of the tour, this is a district tour, so we do not enter to visit any monuments. We do enter anyway in the halls or secret passages between ancient buildings. We are very sorry that the tour was not as you expected.
