Magical day in Marais
Tamar was delightful, charming, and entertaining — a truly wonderful guide. She shared so much history and so many interesting stories. I highly recommend this tour and if Tamar is your guide you will be very lucky!

Meeting point

Meet in front of building 2 Rue Brisemiche, located next to the Pompidou Center across from the large Dalí mural. (The mural shows the face of a man holding his finger to his mouth).

The guide will be holding an orange sign that says “ExperienceFirst.”

For easier navigation, you can paste this address into Google Maps: 2 Rue Brisemiche, 75004 Paris.

FAQs

How much walking is there?

We cover about 2 miles at a leisurely pace. If mobility is an issue, consider booking a private tour.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips aren’t expected but are always appreciated by our guides. If you think your guide did an outstanding job, a tip is a great way to show that.
