Couldn’t have been better - spectacular,

Our trip through the Jewish section in Marais was amazing - the experience difficult to put into words. The Jewish presence in Paris is so ancient and rich, and our guide, Anja, made it come to life through her extensive knowledge as well as personal stories of her family. She was delightful to be with and so knowledgeable about the Jewish experience and culture during and after the war. The trip to the Holocaust Memorial was very powerful as was the wall with the names of the righteous...we learned so much on this tour thanks to Anja , and recommend it without reservation.

This was the best tour I have ever been on!!! Boris Petrovic was the guide and his knowledge of the topic and the angle of discussing the sites in the context of European history/influences/beliefs was phenomenal. I could not recommend this experience more to anyone who is interested in this topic area.
