We all absolutely loved our walk with Genevieve. She is a gorgeous warm and engaging person with so much local all knowledge. We had booked the Marais but she also took us to Notre Dame, The Latin quarter le grand épicerie and recommended so many great eateries that it is lucky we clocked up 18kms walking that day. Mercie à toi Geneviève. C'était le pied !!
