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!

Tour description

"Le Marais" is where Parisians hang out. And why? Is it the old stones? The fashion stores? The old mansions, or the hidden gems that hit you at every tunr? Every tourist who sees Le Marais wants to move to Paris.
 This tour includes:
 >> Place des Vosges, jardins des archives, and Victor Hugo's house.
 >> The secret palace of the Prime Minister.
 >> The Jewish Quarter - and the best falafel.
 >> The art galeries and fashion houses that every Parisian loves to hate/love/hate/love...

 "Le Marais" is a delight for people wondering what elegant Paris is really all about.
Tour ends near metro stations Rambuteau and hotel de ville.

-We walk rain or shine. In Summer, we keep to the shade, and our guide brings fans for everyone. Just look for the guide in a pink vest.

    Meet your guide outside metro Pont-Marie (metro line 7), at street level. Look for the guide in a pink vest. If you are late, try to catch up with the group outside Bibliothèque Forney (at 1 rue du figuier street), but not every guide goes there. We start on time, we walk rain or shine.

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

My gf and I visited the Marais district in Paris with Tobias. During the tour, we saw beautiful places and hidden gems. Tobias gave us many information about the historical context, the French royalty's influence on the district influence, among others. He was always keen to answer our questions, we had a very pleasant conversation. I definitely recommend him for your next tour in Paris!

We had a lot of fun on our walking tour of Le Marais with Flo. Our tour's theme was "survivors" and was incredibly informative. I would recommend this tour to anyone!
