Gabrielle was so knowledgeable and very interactive. We learned about the history of French Jews and Jews in Paris from Roman times til present. The walk through the neighborhoods where Jews came to escape persecution in the late 1800. And early 1900’s, tge open borders to immigration allowing many Jews from Eastern Europe and the plight of French Jews during The Shoah were so interesting and moving. We especially were moved at The Shoah Museum at the wall of 76000. My husband Steve us a WW2 and Jewish history buff and really enjoyed the lively exchanges with Gabrielle. We also loved stopping fir delicious treats in Tge Marais and experiencing the culture. We will recommend Gabrielle to our community whe our friend visit Paris!
Gil was FANTASTIC! He customized the tour depending on our preferences. We learned a great deal about the area and Gil invited questions and answered them easily. We can’t wait to return and use Gil as our guide again.
As I noted on our sign up form, we were interested in combining the Nazi invasion/WW II impact with our tour. That part was missing but Asili covered the Jewish Marais very nicely.
