Our guide showed up late with a sandwich in his mouth. Then he went and got a water and never asked us if we wanted one. He proceeded to walk to the Flea market ahead of us with the look of maybe being annoyed he had to give a tour. he said he had just had a small heart attack the previous day so we were trying to be polite. The Flea Market was amazing but our guide was rude. We would have had a wonderful experience except for him.
Quick tour; excellent guide - market is over-rated and not many 'market deals to be had'.
Our guide, Erell was extremely knowledgeable and very engaging. The market is very large and impossible to see in its entirety in one afternoon; Erell did a great job finding out what areas we would be interested in and then took us to each of those areas. We look forward to going back and experiencing the market with Erell once again!
Not impressed with the selection of goods for sale at the flea market, lots of repetitive things and garage sale quality items at alot of them. My tour guide, and her protege (sorry can't remember the names, started with a K) were great though! Very friendly and helpful. We were the only ones on the tour that day which made it nice and personal. Probably wouldn't do the flea market again.
I was a little bit afraid to go to this area by my own, but I am very glad I take this tour. They show me really nice furniture, vintage clothes, and I even bought a 40’s hat. This market is like a fantasy, you take several steps to the past and it is a most seen in paris.
