We are Discover Walks: Europe's #1 for custom and private tours. When you pick a tour, you ask yourself: does it rate high? But you can also ask: will they both show me the must-see landmarks and “take me backstage” for a taste of the real city? Do they keep their groups small, with good facetime with the guide? Will my guide be not some expat, but a true local with a passion for her/his hometown? A guide able to give me more than just facts, dates and figures? In other words, will I be just another tourist? Or will they “lift the curtain” for me? Discover Walks creates tours that include both the tourist must-sees and locals’ hidden gems. We select guides who are true locals with great personalities. We train them to be engaging and personable and to tell a story well. We keep our groups small, by adding an extra guide when necessary. Welcome on our tours!

About the tour

"Le Marais" is where Parisians choose to hang out. And why? because of the old stones and the trendy stores. The old mansions and the contemporary fashion. The atmosphere and the people. Every tourist who sees Le Marais wants to move to Paris.

In English. El tour es en inglés.

This tour includes:

>> Place des Vosges and the house of Victor Hugo

>> The secret palace of the King's Prime

>> The Jewish district - and the best falafel

>> The art galeries and the fashion houses that every Parisian has their eyes set on.

"Le Marais" is a treat for people who wonder what elegant Paris is really about.

Interesting to know a bit more of the disctrict's history. Good for people that don't know the district and would like to learn about French history in General. I don't recommend it for people that have some knowledge on French history.

Stan was attentive and personable.

I was the only attendee at the tour this afternoon, however, stan treated me with respect and kindness.

Stan's knowledge and enthusiasm allowed me the opportunity to better understand why Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

I highly recommend this tour.

Thank you and kind regards Kimme from Australia.
