Discover the most charming and vital neighborhood of Paris during this 2-hour private tour for the whole family. Take your kids to an exploration of the Marais district, enjoy its marvelous buildings and its narrow medieval lanes alive with the hidden gardens, secret courtyards, hip art galleries, design shops, trendy boutiques and fashionable gourmet restaurants.

Highlights include Hôtel de Ville, Place des Vosges, the Jewish Quarter, St-Paul-St-Louis Church.

With our kid-friendly guides everyone in your party will be engaged in the history and landmarks of Le Marais. Le Marais is an historic district in the heart of Paris and it offers at once the breathtaking fascination of history and the modernity of  the metropole.

You will get to learn about the many layers of its intricate past: Le Marais used to be a swamp (which is the very meaning of the word 
Marais in French) and then went through many ups and down, from being an aristocratic residential area to being completely abandoned by the nobility after the French Revolution and then becoming a working-class, bohemian and even shady neighborhood.

After its rehabilitation, the Marais is today one of the most hip and energetic areas of the City of  Light. You will meet your guide at the city hall, on Place de l’Hôtel de Ville, stroll up the rue des Rosiers for an exploration of the Jewish Quarter, which once hosted the largest community in Europe and is now  filled with delis and delicious eateries. During the tour your guide  will show you a series of secret courtyards, le Centre Pompidou, the  National Archives Garden and St-Paul-St-Louis Church. Last but not  least, you will then marvel at the view of Place des Vosges, deemed to be the most elegant square in the world, and you can even visit the home of Victor Hugo who used to live at number 6 while writing Les Miserables and enjoy a nice view from its windows.
