This tour was not what we expected. The guide asked us what we wanted to do. Our expectation was that she would be familiar with special or unusual places. She did take us into a perfume shop, but this was like just having a third person shopping with you. I would change this tour to include something different, especially for the money.

It did not feel as much as an insider tour but rather the substitute guide (Caroline the regular guide was not available) was more of a shopping companion. We just went to a few stores to shop when I was expecting a slightly more behind the scene tour.

Dissapointing! I was expecting a french native. Also thought guide would have a rapport with the shops she took us to visit. She did not ask what kind of stores we were interested in-didn't learn from what we didn't like. So painful we left tour early-and was just us on tour!

Caroline was a fantastic guide! Once again, turned out to be just the two of us and she catered the tour to my 12 yr. old grandniece. She could not have been nicer..and an extra treat, stopped in a local teahouse for a break with a little treat! Perfect way to see the off the beaten path Paris.

We had a lovely tour guide called Stephanie, she was very interesting and friendly. She showed us shops and galleries that we might not have found walking around on our own, we were not taken to a fragrance lab. We loved the Marais area and will visit again.

I highly recommend this tour, the company meeting the French for me has the best tours in France, you get away for the classic touristic stuff, and you make tours that made me understand the French, I bought several clothes that has indistinctively French style, and I am very happy
