Hi fellow planners! Love all of the info I get on these forums and hearing everyone's trip reports! Our first RS tour is fast approaching, and we're so excited!
Here's my dilemma: On our HOF itinerary, one morning says your guide will tour you through "one of their favorite neighborhoods." How do you plan your free time if you don't know where that is? When do you find out? On the final tour email that is received one month out?
My main concern is that we want some significant time in the Marais, but it is not specifically named on the itinerary. So I spent some time planning a day to flaneur (wander) that area. But now I am concerned that maybe that is the "mystery neighborhood" and our free time would be better spent somewhere else. Also, there are a couple of things that are in that area that I want to get reservations for. Anyone done this tour recently? Or know the ropes better than us newbies?
