Wherever we travel we always seek out a Jewish Tour to get a particular perspective, and see how historical events (both pre and post World War II) have shaped neighborhoods and countries in general.
This tour did not disappoint. As many others have stated, Karen is extremely knowledgeable and points out things a long the way one would not notice unless you were told. She is able to create an image of how things uses to look like and also explain how and why things transformed to how they look now. She facilitates entry into buildings one would otherwise have troubles seeing (or even knowing they were there).
She also makes it easy to get into a fabulous falafel restaurant, one we even returned to on our own. Given her knowledge and ability to navigate the neighborhood, even during the time of unrest in multiple cities\countries, we always felt safe and cared for.
Whether you are Jewish or not, you will learn a lot and enjoy this tour very much. It was memorable and we would absolutely repeat it on future visits to Paris.
