We did the Marais walk with Pierre Yves and he made it come alive! From history to street art to monuments to tips on food....We would definitely do it again!
Very informative and enjoyable.
Pierre was very knowledgeable about the Marais area. He was informative and helped put the sites into a historical perspective. Well done from beginning to end.
It was a pleasure working with Melanie. She was very knowledgeable and quite pleasant as well. And I loved the content of the tour through the cobblestone streets and out of the way courtyard
Christina was great. We were fortunate enough to be the only people on this tour and when we explained what we were doing that afternoon by way of another tour and what we had done earlier in
