He was a very likeable young man with a fair general knowledge of the area. However, he did not come with the enthusiasm we have experienced with other Tours by Locals guides. During the tour we passed another small tour where the guide was most inspiring. We were hoping for more Jewish history of the Marais area. Some of the information given was also incorrect. Fortunately we checked with the local orthodox synagogue. There is no eruv anywhere in Paris!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Naomi. I am sorry not to have been a more entertaining guide. I chose a more respectful approach, especially when dealing with such grave issues as the Jewish history of Paris. Due to your group's appetite for knowledge, I had to tell my stories in a confused order and I appologize for this. As for the ervu, I prepared this tour years ago with jewish friend of mine, now in his 70s, who has lived in the Marais for most of his life. He's the one who explained the ervu to me, the very ones I showed you.
