I enjoyed a wonderful tour with David on a summer-like day in March when we walked the Marais neighborhoods (the focus on the Marais was at my request.) David was fastidious about preparing the tour. He emailed and called me before I went to France in order to understand my wishes. He also emailed a list of recommended restaurants near where I would stay in the Marais. The day of the tour, he arrived with a couple of books and some photocopies of maps to address my wish to see how the Marais has changed over the years. We talked and looked at the books for a few minutes over coffee and then began walking. Since I already knew something about the Marais, David tried to select places I hadn't focused on yet, including the stunning, slightly hidden gardens of the National Archives. He was knowledgeable and wonderfully flexible. We ended up looking at gardens, architecture, and gay restaurants, cafes, and a bookstore, "Les Mots a la Bouche." David is an easy-going pleasant guy with a wealth of experience in various jobs and an in-depth knowledge of Paris. Tour with him - you'll be glad you did.
