We took a three hour walking tour of Jewish Paris and the Marais with Gabrielle this past Friday. She made history come alive for us. We had taken a tour of the same area four years ago with another tour company and we learned many...More
We thought Eric Blanc did a FANTASTIC job educating us on Paris and it's history on this walking tour. We covered so much! Be prepared to walk as we covered nearly 7 miles on a gorgeous Paris morning. Eric's knowledge of Paris urban history and...More

We had planned a tour of Versailles which was cancelled on the morning of the tour due to Versailles staff on strike. Context reacted remarkably and gave us many options to spend the day. We ended up doing a fantastic walking tour of the Louvre...More
Isabelle from Context Travel did the perfect Louvre tour. She tailored the tour to our interests and provided context (accurate name for the agency it seems) for many of the works. She clearly made an effort to interest our 9- and 14-year-old daughters while including...More
Context Tours are truly terrific. Small groups - typically under 8 persons - with an experienced expert guide. Our guide, Eric Blanc, is a Frenchman who has studied urban planning in France and law in the USA. Very knowledgeable, and interesting. We saw about everything...More
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.

We have a good deal of tours for families traveling to Paris. Personally, my favorite is the Montmartre for Families: Palettes & Paintbrushes. It tells the story of a neighborhood through the lives of the great artists who lived there. Kids have the opportunity to try being artists for the day. It's great fun and educational at the same time.
I hope this helps,
