A young man's unwanted opinions
Robert_G, Mar 2023
Guide was poor and tour was disjointed HE judgemental and provided little information, just his opinions of the past. We would have enjoyed a story of the history of the neighborhood
Dayna_K, Jan 2023
We expected Jewish history - which we did not get. There was a mention of the plaques around town and the falafel stand and that was it - a lot of time spent on the church and Picasso - interesting but not what we signed up for

Great tour of Le Marais with a terrific guide!
Norman_B, Oct 2022
We had a wonderful tour of Le Marais. Our guide, Tamari, was delightful--charming and knowledgeable, with a nice humorous touch. She was very informative, especially as to the architectural features of the area and tips for eating and shopping.
Great tour

We had a great time with Agustina. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area, introduced us to a new area of Paris. We will definitely go back to this area and take another tour with Agustina.
Highly recommend!!

Francois was absolutely fantastic. He is animated, passionate, fun, and very knowledgeable!! We learned all about the neighborhood’s history, architecture, and best local spots. Highly recommend this tour, it was very interesting and became one of my favorite areas in Paris!
Must do in Marais!
Ashley_H, Sep 2022
This tour was a wonderful way to explore a part of the city we were unfamiliar with. Our guide did a fantastic job explaining various areas/ stops to us. We especially enjoyed visiting the Jewish area and learning the history of the Jews in this area. I recommend this tour and if you go, you’ll be lucky to have Malaika as your guide!
Medieval History, Architecture with Incredible Knowledgeable Guide
Nancy_R, Aug 2022
Our guide, Francois, brought his passion for Paris history to life. His enthusiasm was infectious. We learned so much from him. We were able to tailor our tour to our interests and he happily complied. It helped that my husband and I were the only ones that day. Le Marais became our favorite region of Paris. We learned of amazing museums off the beaten path and away from the tourist crowds. We saw some of the oldest buildings in Paris and the remnants of the Paris City fortress walls from centuries ago. Le Marais is a jewel of medieval history in this city of so many gems.
Fine but expensive.
Gillian_D, Jul 2022
Somewhat interesting. I would have liked more history and more sites. Not what I expected but fine. Expensive for what it was.
Amazing guide!

Our tour guide Romain was the best! He showed us everything and took into account some of the things we saw all over into our tour and showed us the spots! Super fun day!
Very Highly Recommended
Reynel_G, Apr 2022
Martel, is very knowledgeable and passionate about Le Marais district and Jewish quarter. We have a wonderful time even though we are only 2 during the tour, and despite the rain Paris is wonderful. We highly recommend Martel and the Babylon tour for the job well done. Definitely we will be using the company again in the near future! Au revoir!!!
Very enjoyable and we learned a lot about Paris!
Sandra_G, Jan 2022
Our tour guide Belen was wonderful! She gave us a tour filled with a rich history of the area including the history of the architecture and political history. We did not know what to expect but at the end we knew so much more about France. It was very enjoyable. She also gave us some restaurant recommendations which were very helpful.
Great fun

Loved this tour! Francois was funny, knowledgeable, and answered all our questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this district with Francois.
Important history told by great guide
Pasd8j, Sep 2019
Le Marias District is loaded with history and impressive architecture. The Jewish Quarter tour is also well presented and informative. We added separately the Jewish museum which is excellent and close in proximity to the guided tour. Elana in particular was very knowledgeable, engaging and interactive. We had a rich experience with her as our guide and came away with a good grasp of the history of the neighborhood and Paris at large. We highly recommend this guided tour as it adds a different perspective to the usual sites in Paris.
Joel_B, Apr 2019
The guide was a nice person but he didn’t really talk about history & architecture as much as we had hoped.
