We enjoyed a Montmartre walking tour on a bright, sunny day. Our guide couldn't have been more informative or entertaining. We spent a fun-filled 2 hours listening to stories about prior events that happened in this area as well as things going on today is this eccentric area. These guides work hard and do an overall excellent job. I had... More

90 minute tour of Seine river was good, with Nadia as our guide. A native Parisian, she is friendly and gives a good tour. We would have enjoyed more stories and insider tips, versus just the facts about the sights. Nadia is young and will get better as a tour guide. A worthwhile tour of the Seine, along the Isle...

We did the Montmartre walking tour and loved it. Our guide Quentin was knowledgable and we could tell he really loved the city and talking about it. The tour went through some quieter streets of Montmartre which we never would have done alone and we learnt a heap. He was also happy to give us helpful hints about keeping safe... More

My wife and I did the Montmartre Impressionists tour and loved it. There were 8 of us plus guide. It was most informative and very entertaining. Our guide, Roma, was brilliant. He kept us all interested with his knowledge of the area and the artists. He entertained us with lots of funny stories. And he even sang to us! I... More

These were informative tours, priced well below the competition and very good value. Do the Marais on Sunday, when most of the rest of Paris is closed. If you do the Marche aux Puces, the giant flea market at Clignancourt, BE SURE TO TELL THE GUIDE THAT YOU NEED TO BE LED BACK TO THE START. Otherwise, she just waves... More

Spot on! The Flea Market is gigantic, and getting there is confusing. And so we meet guests at the metro, and at the end we walk them back to the metro or to the bus, or we order a taxi for them etc. Thank you. Warm regards, Alexandre More

Walking tour of Montmartre was excellent. Native guide gave a personal touch. Good to see the back streets away from the hoards of tourists.

Our guide to Montmartre, Lo, was great fun, very entertaining and informative and it was a super way to find our way around the area with someone who could tailor the walk and talk for the group.

We seem to hsve become veterens of the "free" waking tours offered in cities aroung the world. Great idea sometimes well executed, sometimes not. Basically it all comes down to the guide you get. So, in Paris, we did the tour of the Marais led by a guide who lives there. Frankly she was hard to hear and we didn't... More

I did the Montmartre tour guided by Margaret (I think that's her name!). She was an excellent guide, full of knowledge, energy and enthusiasm and bad jokes (:D). I would definitely recommend doing it as it's a great way to see get a fast insight into the area and its history.
