The weeks before our tour, I had a very good contact with Diane Lepicard, the owner of Paris Shopping Tour. As she wanted to get to know us a bit better, we had to fill in a questionnaire in which we had to answers questions about our favorite brands and styles and of course we could mention the maximum budget we wanted to spend. That way, she could adjust the tour on our wishes.
So after a stroll in the Marais and lunch at Kong’s (of which you can read more in a later travel post!), my sister Cindy, my daughter Charlotte and I met up with Alexandra, one of the fashion experts of Paris Shopping Tour.
Alexandra was very friendly and very knowledgeable about fashion and she took us to different boutiques in a neighbourhood of Paris which was new to us: Rue Saint-Etienne Marcel and surrounding streets. This neighbourhood definitely wasn’t overloaded with tourists which was really nice for a change!!
We visited several beautiful boutiques in which we were given tips by Alexandra and the shop assistants, but we never ever felt obliged to buy stuff (of which I was a bit afraid of at first).
After the tour, I was contacted again by Diane as she wanted to know of course how I had experienced the tour. Again, the contact was really nice and smooth.
