Even in the very centre of Paris, there are neighbourhoods that feel like independent villages; enclaves with a thriving community and distinct atmosphere - Le Marais is one. Explore its old world charm and artistic tendencies, stroll along cobbled streets and between pre-revolution mansions, meander through the stalls of Paris’s oldest market and in and out of small galleries. This is one of Paris’s most historic quarters, which today is a diverse blend of Old Paris, Jewish heritage and a vibrant LGBTQ scene. With a local by your side, soak up the charming atmosphere and savour delicious gourmet cuisine from bistros, boulangeries and open air markets and discover the heart of Paris through the eyes of a local.

What To Expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you. 

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do. 

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary. 

Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things, and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
