We toured Marais with Jill on a recent trip to Paris. She did a great job opening up the neighborhood to us and sharing all the interesting historical background and fun facts about Marais. Jill has a fun personality and a unique storytelling approach. We enjoyed discovering this neighborhood and came back to it a few times during the rest of our trip!

Jill was very nice but but we would have enjoyed seeing more of the Marais and less time on non topic- related facts about the French Monarchy.

During our stay in Paris, we were lucky enough to have not only one, but two tours with Jill. For our second tour with Jill, we explored the Marais district, and learned so much about it’s rich history, including aspects of architecture, gastronomy, art and culture. Marais is a very unique part of Paris - apart from the Latin Quarter, it is one of the only neighborhoods that did not see the Haussmann reconstruction during the mid 1800s, which still keeps some of the medieval aspects intact. Jill’s knowledge of the city’s history is clear, and her passion and love for the city shines through in her storytelling and makes for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind tour experience. I would highly recommend her Paris Always Walk tours for anyone wishing to learn more about Paris during their stay. On our first tour with Jill, we explored the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris, which was absolutely wonderful. I hope to return to Paris again soon and would love to book her Latin Quarter tour. Thank you Jill - your tours were highlights of our stay in Paris!

Très bonne expérience avec Jill, amoureuse de l'histoire de France, l'architecture, et bien d'autres choses. Cette visite est très dynamique, enthousiaste, dans un quartier contenant beaucoup d'histoire, d'architecture de différentes époques. Je recommande vivement cette visite.

I was really excited to read the description of this tour as I am a person who prefers the one to one interactions rather than group tours; as curious person it always gives me a better perspective and allows me to ask any question. And much to my delight I was hooked with Jill upon first meeting her! We discussed everything about Paris the city: history, architecture, art, and culture! I could truly feel her passion for the city which is one of the reasons that made me fell in love with this tour! I personally enjoy the company of Paris residents who aren’t French, as it gives me sort of the perspective of international artists who fell in love with the city and called it HOME. And Jill definitely will make you fall in Paris too! Also, I really loved that I couldn’t feel the time pass with her, and she kindly extended the tour a bit -without me asking- just to show me a few places and local shops that she felt I would like it. So if you want this amazing personal touch, don’t hesitate to book this trip.
