The tour will include Le Marais (the main Jewish neighborhood), Place des Vosges, Hotel de Sully, Musee Carnavalet, the Holocaust Memorial Museum and much more!
Would you like to accompany the tour with an authentic Parisian meal? We’ll provide recipes if you do!
Karen Reb Rudel is our presenter. Born and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, Karen grew up with the aspiration to be a comedian, a musician, or both. From the age of 30 until she get married, Karen was back and forth between Paris and Philadelphia, working on musical projects and touring (including being the flautist and singer in a Reggae band in Paris). One day her parents came to visit her and Karen, having learned a lot about Paris, was showing them around when her mother exclaimed, “Karen, you would make a great tour guide!” That was the light bulb moment, and as the French say, voila!
