Flora answered all our questions very quickly by email. She booked us for the small group tour of le Marais. We shared the experience with 2 other visitors and it felt like a private tour with a real Jewish French guide. We learned a lot about the jewish life in Paris and the jews of France in general. Le Marais has a lot of charm and Flora made it more alive ! thank you again for taking good care of us 😉 It was the highlights of our stay!

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!

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 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.

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!

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.
