We took a Context guided food tour of the Marais just a few days after the terror attacks on the city. While it was very quiet in this part of the city, the tour was fine.

The tour itself -ie. where we went was excellent. I wish we had done it on the first day we were in Paris as there were etiquette tips telling us how to behave to get good service. We went to some interesting food shops where our guide bought samples of things we would eventually taste. I have mixed opinions about... More

We highly recommend Context Travel. We had heard about them from friends, and the Crash Course of the Louvre was better than I expected. We learned about many of the key pieces of the collection, setting the stage to explore again later on our own. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a great teacher. We went on a Context Travel...

On short notice Context not only arranged our transportation from Paris to Cain, but our tour of Normandy and Omaha Beach was with the author of the book about this historic place and time. His knowledge, and delivery of Churchill's speeches was extraordinary. We were truly moved by the entire experience.

One of our best experiences in Paris. Preston our tour guide was fabulous and explained the history and importance of various foods such as cheese, baguettes etc. Our taste buds were on overdrive on this tour. Well worth the price. You must do this and you will better understand french food.

Our tour guide, Alisa Morov was amazing! She gave us a private walking tour and food tasting in the Marais area of Paris. She was incredible - full of interesting information and definitely knew the best places to taste the best food! My husband is gluten free and it wasn't easy, but she definitely planned for him in the tour.... More

A lovely, relaxing, personalized excursion into the world of Claude Monet. From the moment we met at the train station in Paris, the docent swept us off our feet. Beginning in our train car, we were presented with a rich history of Impressionism, interesting biographical material of the "father" of this art movement, anecdotal information, and a wonderful IPad portfolio...

Preston Mohr was our experienced and informative tour guide on this delightful tour of the St. Germain area of Paris. Preston's knowledge of the history of the French foods and drinks was impressive and we loved sampling all of the offerings of the area. As we had been to Paris in the past and seen all of the 'big sights',... More

We took the morning Baguette to Bistro tour at the beginning of our trip to Paris. Alisa was an excellent guide - experienced food journalist, long-time Parisian, friendly with top food purveyors. We learned a lot about food traditions and sourcing, and enjoyed so many delicious samples that we couldn't eat lunch that day. I recommend this tour to anyone... More

If you love chocolate, if you love patisserie, then it would be rude not to do this tour. We visited 8 wonderful chocolate / patisserie shops and had some great tastings and history lessons along the way. There was just me and a couple of ladies from NZ so we were quite spoilt being a small group. Not rushed, lovely... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
