    Tobias was an excellent guide-very knowledgeable and a great communicator. The market is too big & confusing to do it alone but Tobias made it less intimidating. Really enjoyed his tour!

    Tobias was lovely and very helpful. The tour was extensive and suited to our tastes. The market is extensive and without Tobias’s help it would have been difficult to get a good overview, despite published descriptions.

    This was a great way to explore the Flea Markets of Paris in a fun and educational way! Our tour guide Tobias was very knowledgeable about the different markets and was able to guide us through the complicated passages. He even tailored the tour to what items our group was interested in seeing, and he was able to communicate with vendors with us if we had any questions. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is considering visiting the flea/antique markets! They were much easier to navigate with Tobias as our guide.

    Our guide, Tobias, was absolutely wonderful! He asked what we wanted to see and made sure that is what he showed us. He was fun, informative, and helped us get the best price!

    Best intro to the market! I went the weekend before and was discouraged and overwhelmed; our guide was knowledgeable and fun!

  • 08-Mar-2022

    Was good to hear the history of the markets and to see different areas but the guide kept taking us to parts of the markets that sold huge pieces of furniture and garden settings etc. As overseas travellers we cannot buy any of these things and take them home so would have been better to stick to the parts that sold smaller goods

    Sean is a very personable and knowledgeable guide but the tour needs to be adjusted to his audience …as a tour guide myself I try to tailor my presentation to my audiences interests…this is not a criticism but I hope a helpful critique. We were a group of 8 all 60+…I personally found it hard to relate to the “younger” points of interest (space ships, cartoon characters, records …all things hip with the younger generation lol if “hip” is still a word )when there are so many other “older” things I’d have liked to seen…we ended up leaving the tour early to go explore on our own. P.S. not my first time at the flea market so I ended up showing my friend around…

    Florent gave us a birds eye view of the huge St Ouen flea market. It was an interesting and informative tour.

    Betty and I have been to Paris, perhaps two dozen times, and without fail, we spend one day at the Marche du Puce ( Market of the Fleas ), in St. Ouen. You could visit a hundred times and never see it all. However, there are favorite stalls that we must always visit. The Tapestry shop, Vernaisan Tapisseries, is one of those places. We always find at least one or two French tapestries that must come home with us. And the corridors with the African sculptors and artists is a must-see.

    There is really nothing there, usual trinkets for tourists. Complete waste of time, we spent 30 min looking for anything interesting but saw nothing at all.
