Jewish Quarter Paris Tours – Le Marais Jewish walking tour

Welcome to Jewish Paris Tours,

my name is Flora Goldenberg,

I am a Tour Guide specialized in the Jewish Walking Tours in Paris.

I am Licensed by the state, after studying History and Art at the Sorbonne University for 5 years, that’s why I tour in all museums and monuments of my city like the Louvre, Versailles, Orsay.

I am born and raised in Paris, in le Marais. The Jewish Quarter of Paris has always been my Home: I am the granddaughter of Joe Goldenberg, owner of a famous restaurant in le Marais : Rue des Rosiers “Pletzl”. 

My mother is a tour guide in Paris as well, she inspired me in my Jewish tours. We designed together the Original Jewish Walking Tour of our beautiful neighborhood.

 You can contact me by Email : Flora.Goldenberg@gmail.com or Whatsapp +33616304735


Here is the list of my tours & some ideas for your stay : 


 – 1 – The Jewish Walking Tour in Le Marais Neighborhood Paris 

Duration : 3 Hours – Languages : English  + Español + Deutsch עִברִית + Français 

We will explore the Jewish Quarter located in the heart of Paris, the “Pletzl”, which has been the center of Jewish life in Paris since the 13th century.

While walking in the paved narrow streets of Le Marais, you will learn about the history of the Jewish communities in Paris, for more than 2000 years. We will talk about the history of the Jews in the Middle ages, when they were persecuted and expelled from the country in 1394. We’ll talk about the time of the French Revolution, and the occupation of Paris during WWII, and you will have the chance to discover some hidden places that only a local can know about.

I organize visits inside the beautiful synagogues of the neighborhood with the help of the local community.

We discover the Jewish shops, the Kosher bakeries and Jewish bookstores…

The tour includes a quick visit of the Holocaust memorial located at the end of the tour, in Le Marais.

*Short Tours : We can do the short version without Notre Dame, or without the Memorial.

*Long Tours : We can add la Place des Vosges, or give you an inside tour of the Jewish Louvre

After the tour, you can stay in Le Marais for lunch, and maybe try the famous Kosher Restaurants in the area or trendy Jewish restaurants ( but not Kosher)

Flora did a GREAT job showing us (two grandparents with a 13 year old granddaughter) the Marais and explaining both its history and that of French Jewry. She has a wonderful demeanor and was a pleasure to be with. Her knowledge was great and easily communicated. And importantly, she paced the tour on a hot day to make it enjoyable. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get a feel and experience of the area and its history.

I am the owner of a luxury travel agency and it’s one of my greatest missions to find the absolute best tour guides in each city. I feel SO lucky to have discovered Flora - what a gem. From the very first email, I knew Flora would be the perfect fit: she is prompt with her replies, creative in the construction of tours, speaks flawless English and her prices are fair. I love that she is such an accomplished, certified guide as she brings to the table a wealth of knowledge and precise accuracy that cannot be replicated by most guides. Above all, Flora’s people skills are beyond measure. She goes above and beyond to make sure tours and client experience are both flawless and for that, we are especially grateful. If you are looking for a Parisian guide to show you the sites - with a Jewish focus or without - Flora really is the perfect fit. You will not be disappointed!

Livia was an outstanding guide. We took a Jewish tour of the Paris Marais and the information she provided was extremely thorough and we felt that we learned more in 2 hours than the previous 6 trips we have taken to Paris over the past 5 years.

I connected with Flora online and knew I wanted her to be our tour guide for me, my daughter, and my 10 year old twin granddaughters. The timing did not work out for us but she connected me with her colleague Ben. We LOVED Ben and were so grateful for him to have been the one (other than Flora) to be our guide. He connected with my family as if we were the only ones in the world he had to devote time to, (and there were 4 other people on our tour.) He presented a LOT of history in a very understandable fashion for the girls, and was always aware that anything he said needed to be absorbed by young people. We then had the pleasure of having Ben join us for lunch and that was amazing. Thanks Ben for a great morning in the Marais!!

Flora was not available but recommended Cynthia who we toured with for 3 days: Marais, Lourve and Versailles. Our group of six had an amazing experience, Cinthia's knowledge of French history and art was encyclopedic! Flora arranged everything for your tours, made suggestions that were spot on and handled a small glitch with ease. We are not Jewish but the Shoah Memorial brought my family to tears. Thank you Flora!
