We had a great experience with Karen on a Sunday morning tour of the oldest food market area in Paris. Karen was fun to be with and truly appreciated the relationships she has built up with the local vendors and restaurant owners in order to make this tour happen. The food was delicious and the experience one of our best while in Paris!
