Manufacture des Gobelins At €18 this is a very expensive and disappointing tour even for someone like me who is very interested in this craft. The first 50 minutes of the tour were spent standing listening to the guide. There are no tours in English,...More

We were a large group attending a conference in Paris near the Gobelin manufacture, and therefore it was obvious to include a visit to the Gobelins. And we were not disappointed: it was outstanding to experience the concentrated work and handcraft of the chosen few...More

We visited the workshop (we missed the tour. Not sure when the tours are, and they are only in French.) The workshop is open several days a week. The display is described all in French, but on the second floor there are artisans who were...More
