Walkative was established in 2007 by a group of young enthusiasts who also happened to be licensed tour guides. Today, we operate in 20 cities in countries across all of Europe and beyond, including France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Ukraine and Israel. We have already guided more than 3 million tourists, with more than 350 000 in 2023 only! Despite this growth, we stay true to our values: be local and present the history of our cities in a professional, yet entertaining way, accessible for everybody, regardless their budget. We provide service not only in big, well established places like Berlin, Paris or Krakow, but also smaller, less known, yet no less fascinating locations, like Nice, Toruń or Lublin. We cooperate with highly trained, professional guides providing both engaging tip-based and regular fixed-price tours. And most importantly - we know our cities by heart! Join us and stay Walkative!

Tour description

 Discover the essence of Paris ́s most iconic and opulent neighbourhood on our tour: Le Marais is a local treasure, inviting you to uncover its rich history, monuments and hidden gems far away from typical tourist trails. 


Our expert guide will take you on an immersive journey through the aristocratic charm of the 16th and 17th century, with magnificent palaces of the high bourgeoisie, showcasing authentic jewels of French architecture. Despite its humble medieval origins, Le Marais was spared from Haussmann’s urban renewal, preserving remnants of its illustrious past, medieval and renaissance.


Marvel at architectural masterpieces like the Hôtel de Sully and the ancient walls of Philippe Auguste. Let your mind wander through picturesque private mansions, where tales of royalty offer a glimpse into the district’s opulent history.


Follow the footsteps of literary giant Victor Hugo before delving into the Museum of the History of Paris. Experience the vibrant Jewish quarter, home to Paris’s infamous Jewish community since the 13th century. Discover the Pletzl, a hub for Eastern European Jews fleeing persecution, and indulge in the flavours of the area, from traditional Jewish delicacies to the best falafel in town.


Let us guide you through Le Marais, offering local insider tips on the best eateries, patisseries, museums, and galleries and immerse yourself in the unique vibe of this iconic neighbourhood.
