    Our guide was Olga and she was excellent. Would have found it impossible to traverse the flea market without her expertise and she conducts tours other than to the flea market. Would book with her again if and when I should return to Paris.

    Our guide showed up late with a sandwich in his mouth. Then he went and got a water and never asked us if we wanted one. He proceeded to walk to the Flea market ahead of us with the look of maybe being annoyed he had to give a tour. he said he had just had a small heart attack the previous day so we were trying to be polite. The Flea Market was amazing but our guide was rude. We would have had a wonderful experience except for him.

    I loved this!! It was everything I was hoping for. Our guide, David, went above and beyond to help us with deals and translation. I would love to go again!!!

    The was a great tour and our guide was very nice. He spoke great English and really knew the area well. He showed us all over the flea market and took us into different areas. He was willing to negotiate with sellers and made sure we understood the dynamics of the flea market. The flea market is located in a bad area and we felt safe with him.

    Quick tour; excellent guide - market is over-rated and not many 'market deals to be had'.

    Our guide, Erell was extremely knowledgeable and very engaging. The market is very large and impossible to see in its entirety in one afternoon; Erell did a great job finding out what areas we would be interested in and then took us to each of those areas. We look forward to going back and experiencing the market with Erell once again!

    Not impressed with the selection of goods for sale at the flea market, lots of repetitive things
    and garage sale quality items at alot of them. My tour guide, and her protege (sorry can't remember the names, started with a K) were great though! Very friendly and helpful. We were the only ones on the tour that day which made it nice and personal. Probably wouldn't do the flea market again.

    Excellent tour guide and tour. Would definitely recommend this tour to other's visiting Paris! Great price and found some terrific gifts at flea market.

    The guide was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. If you are looking for a particular type of item, or are needing someone whom speaks French, I would highly recommend this.

    I was a little bit afraid to go to this area by my own, but I am very glad I take this tour. They show me really nice furniture, vintage clothes, and I even bought a 40’s hat. This market is like a fantasy, you take several steps to the past and it is a most seen in paris.
