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

If you want to get to know some Parisian neighborhoods as the local do, take the tours that Eye Prefer Paris tours offers. I read great reviews in trip advisor of Richard and his tours from friends, and decided to go for them. Richard is an expat who has been living in Paris for more than ten years. He takes... More

You know how it is. Someone suggests you do this or that and you drink the Kool Aid and follow along. Well drink away with this one. Richard does an amazing job of showing you Paris. We did the driving tour of the big attractions followed by the walking tour - both were wonderful experiences!!! My daughter (16) wife and... More

I booked a full day customized shopping tour with Richard of Eye Prefer Paris. Richard emailed me soon after I booked online, asking me what my expectations were. I had specific things I wanted to do/see/buy, but of course wanted to make room for his expertise. Mainly I wanted to experience shops that are unique to Paris. The day turned... More

Richard helped us with two tours of Paris for our small group. He and his colleague both moved to Paris due to a passion for the city. Richard is extremely adaptable, quickly learned what interested us the most, and provided a unique perspective on sections of the city which most tourist miss. Yes, he can do the highlights too, but... More

we really enjoyed our tour of the Marais with Richard. It's a real insider's view of a Paris neighborhood which was perfect for us, since we've been to Paris many times. He made us want to live there!

My friends and I recently took 2 tours with Richard, and both were excellent. The day of our arrival in Paris Richard and his driver picked us up for a 4 hour overview tour—we saw all the highlights and learned some history along the way. It was a great way to get acquainted with this gorgeous city and to get... 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.
