    By far my favorite tour by an amazing, knowledgeable and extremely friendly tour guide Tobias! Trying to get through that market would’ve been impossible, and there’s a lot of pitfalls before you get there not to mention that it is huge, bigger than any market I’ve ever seen. So finding out what the layout is and the best way to go about it and how you interact with people was key! Tobias is well informed, experienced and insightful. He makes this about your wants for shopping and anticipates your needs. I doubt a better tour guide can be found! I highly recommend him! You will not be disappointed.

    Great experience!

    I got a top notch tour of Marche de Puces. Saw what was important for future return trips and checked off one more "bucket list" item. Florant, our guide, was clear and concise. He covered what seemed to me a very large amount of territory in only 2 hours and addressed all the needs of the participants. At the close of the tour I was able to comfortably return to the areas that were important to me and get back to our initial meeting place comfortably. Thanks Florant for sharing your special native knowledge.

    Good orientation

    Had Sean all to myself so he was able to show me a few stalls that has things I was interested in. He did a good job of orienting me and showed several unique features about the various markets. Good value.
