    This tour, and Stephanie in particular, far exceeded our expectations. Her knowledge and sense of humor was a highlight of our trip to Paris. Fantastique!

    We learned so much from Boris during the 2 hours we spent with him (which flew by). He was an extremely well-qualified guide who was able to explain how significant eras and events in history (beginning with the Agricultural Revolution!) paved the way for subsequent developments, including the tragedy of the Holocaust. Boris is a true scholar and it was a privilege to listen to his extremely well-informed, thoughtful and insightful presentation of the history of the Jews in Paris. He was able to put this history into a broad context that made even the most horrific events more understandable. Bravo Boris!

    Our trip through the Jewish section in Marais was amazing - the experience difficult to put into words. The Jewish presence in Paris is so ancient and rich, and our guide, Anja, made it come to life through her extensive knowledge as well as personal stories of her family. She was delightful to be with and so knowledgeable about the Jewish experience and culture during and after the war. The trip to the Holocaust Memorial was very powerful as was the wall with the names of the righteous...we learned so much on this tour thanks to Anja , and recommend it without reservation.

    I have been in Paris many times but never took a tour since I considered I "knew everything about Paris". A friend recommended me Boris so I decided to check on different tours he was proposing. What a great surprise! I loved the fact that he had something on Jewish History which is not common. The weather was great so it made my experience even better. Boris know a lot on the subject and our discussion was really great and creative i could even say. I have recommended later this tour to some of my Jewish friends from the States and they loved it too! Now for my next trip in February I'm planning to do Art Nouveau Tour with Boris :)

    This was the best tour I have ever been on!!! Boris Petrovic was the guide and his knowledge of the topic and the angle of discussing the sites in the context of European history/influences/beliefs was phenomenal. I could not recommend this experience more to anyone who is interested in this topic area.
