I usually visit Montmarte everytime I go to Paris. So I was pleasantly surprised to be taken through interesting small alleys on this walking tour. The tour guide was Charlotte. She was funny and witty - delivering the narrative with wicked humor. The tour starts from the Blance Metro station (line 2) at 11 am. When you arrive, its not... More

Went on 2 of these walks whilst in Paris, The Marias and Moulan Rouge, both were very enjoyable with the well informed guides giving a good insight in the history of the areas.

Very interesting experience, Victor is a really knowledgeable and funny guy, I especially remembered the anecdotes about Edward VII, or the Pink Panther guys robbery. Highly recommended for everyone who is interested in a crash course about the history and soul of one of the prettiest cities in the world.

Had an excellent historical introduction to the opera house, place vendome, and strolled through areas of the louvre garden. Also had a great tour guide, Victor- who shined with enthusiasm and gave just the right amount of history, without overwhelming us with facts. He even offered to take us through to le Pompidou, free of charge as he was heading... More

Discover Walks is a company that provides “free” walking tours of famous neighborhoods in Paris (they also have tour guides in many other large cities in Europe). While the tours are technically free the guides work on tips and you pay what you want at the end of the tour. I went with my wife on a Monday morning in... More

Myself and teenage daughter booked the Montmatre Tour with Manuel? We only booked the evening before. Our tour guide was great and knowledgeable and truly loved this neighbourhood that he was born in and grew up in. Nice to have little personal tips and backstreet views of the Sacre Cour. The tour was supposed to last 1.5 hours but we... More

We took the discover walks Notredam tour with the guide victor. The tour and Victor were great.

We enjoyed it very much. The... More
