My in-laws had spent some time with Richard and recommended us to him for our Spring Break trip to Paris. I have 3 teenage boys and Richard was great for all of us. He took us around the city & told us wonderful stories with every turn, especially in the Marais area. I recommend him if you have a short... More

My college age son and I (his mother) were recently in Paris and had the opportunity to spend a morning with Richard on his tour of the Marais. What a lovely way to spend a morning. It was more like spending time with a friend who lives in Paris. He was able to point out places and things that we... More

My husband and I pride ourselves on being able to navigate and experience to the fullest any foreign city with a good map and a guide book. On a recent spring break trip to Paris with our teenage daughter we decided to deviate from the more cultural attractions and culminate our visit with something frivolous - sampling chocolate and pastries!...

Richard was the perfect shopping guide for us - two moms and two 16 yo daughters on a 'sweet 16 trip'. Richard really knows the Marais well and took the girls to a wide variety of fun shops where they found some cute fashion items and local art. I would highly recommend Richard, his style is very easy going and... More

My parents, daughter and I spent a wonderful morning with Richard on a tour of the Saint-Germain de Pres neighborhood in Paris. We met Richard within walking distance of our hotel near Les Deux Magots and Cafe de Flore and from there spent several hours wandering the beautiful streets. We visited chocolate shops, the Bon Marche, and Saint Sulpice. We... More

It was a trip of our dreams when a group of lifelong friends headed to Paris this spring. And there to give us an incredible introduction when we arrived was Richard! That's why I'm calling him our Best Friend Forever in Paris= BFFP. I can't imagine a better welcome. Richard met us at our rental apartment and took us on... More

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of taking a trip to France with our two adult daughters. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to share France and time together with them.

My husband and I went to Paris some time ago to celebrate my 40th birthday (it was my first time there but my husband had been several times) and I thought it would be a good idea to engage Richard to show us around and introduce us to this beautiful city in a way that was not typical of most...

My lovely wife and I were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary with a romantic trip to Paris, and boy were we lucky to be referred to Richard..it turned out to be a highlight of the visit.

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.
