Paris Walking Tour: Discover the Marais District
Continue to the Place des Voges, one of the oldest squares in Paris and a highlight of the Marais. It was once a royal park and is considered to be one of the most beautiful squares in Paris; it was also home to famous French writer Victor Hugo. Next see one of the best examples of Jewish culture in the Marais today – the cobbled Rue des Rosiers, home to Jewish bakeries, bookshops and kosher food outlets. Walk along this vibrant street with your guide, and make note of its popular cafes to come back to during your time in Paris.

The tour guide was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He was also very personable. He showed us all the places in Marais that were off the track. He explained the historical significance of everything he showed us.
Excellent walk about the Marais filled with nooks and crannies you may never knew existed bar for the happy tour guide. Vey helpful to get perspective on the area, it's occupants and life's' impacts on it's inhabitants :-
Wonderful way to see part of Paris. History, food, shopping, street art. Great'n
So great that I took it twice!
My husband and I have always loved the Marais district for its charm and liveliness. We saw the Marais but did not know it. This tour brought it to life in a way we could not do by ourselves. Kit was a remarkable guide, explaining both the architecture and the history of each place we saw. Kit brought to life the many French revolutions. My husband laughed that Kit should have been his history teacher, We saw the interior of several churches and Hotel Particulars most notably Place des Voges and Hotel Sully. The most poignant part of the tour was Kit showing us plaques listing the young French children who died in concentration camps in WW2. We highly recommend this tour.
One of the best tour guides I have ever had
Excellent tour and tour guide. Highly recommend if you want to know more about this interesting section of Paris.
