Richard came highly recommended but we received way more than we had expected! We saw all the sights one would expect to see but the knowledge and history he was able to share with us was priceless! He even stopped to take the fun "touristy" pictures of us so that we would be able to have wonderful memories of our... More

We first leaned about Richard when a friend recommended his blog - Eye Prefer Paris, which we followed for several weeks. Then another friend told us that he lives in the Marais district and would be the perfect guide for a tour there. We spent a lovely morning during our walking tour of the Marais with Richard. His insider's view... More

I met Richard for a walking tour of St. Germain and experienced first hand all of the charms of the neighborhood. Richard pointed out hidden passageways, beautiful courtyard gardens and gave highlights of the history of one of the oldest parts of the city. We made stops to sample salted caramels that melt in your mouth, scrumptious chocolates and ended... More

We've been staying in the Marais area many times while visiting Paris. It's one of our favourite areas of the city, and just wandering around by ourselves is wonderful. But it hides a lot of gems that you wouldn't find that easily on your own. Therefore, we hired Richard to show us the area. I'm very happy we did. The... More

The Marais was my second Eye Prefer Paris tour. It was superb again . If you think you can wander around Paris with a guide book and Google maps and get the true experience then think again. Richard knows Paris like only a true insider can. He loves the city and it shows.I was entranced by the beauty of the... More

Richard's tour exceeded our expectations. This was our first trip to Paris and he was recommended by a neighbor. We chose these 3 tours because we hoped to get a lot of the city covered in 2 days. He is so knowledgeable and personable. We had a day to ourselves and he made recommendations for sights we should see as... More

In May ,my daughter and I had the wonderful experience of touring the Marais district with Richard. It was like meeting an old friend. Richard was so knowledgeable about the area. He pointed out places that we probably would have missed if we were on our own. We enjoyed his stories and his sense of humor. What a pleasure to... More

Richard is an incredible guide. He took my family on 2 of his different walking tours. We enjoyed the different paths, the secret places and history Richard gives. His tours are great because they are personalized by day and where you want to go. His knowledge of history, architecture, and all the other little Paris tid bits makes him an... More

My wife, daughter and I took Richard's 3-hour walking tour of St. Germain-de-Pres on our visit this month. We had an excellent time and I highly recommend his tours to anyone visiting Paris. We had been to Paris before but hadn't ventured to St. Germain so it was nice to learn a new area. Richard knows Paris and showed us... 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.
