We have been to Paris a couple of times before, but this was our first guided tour. Very competent and friendly guide (Mathew), lots of interesting stories and historical background, never boring. We can recommend the tour 100%. Thank you!!

Loved the tour with Marielle! It was truly wonderful! Very informative, the sights were amazing and I met some incredible people that were in our group. I fiercely recommend it to anyone who wants to get to know Paris, a little of its culture and History, and that are up for a good walk around the city.

Experience of Montmartre is the best when walking through its narrow streets. It is better when somebody who knows this place can tell you a little bit more about it while walking with you. And it is much better if somebody is Marielle from Culturefish. You can get to know various interesting things from cult places like where Vincent van... More

The tour was amuzing, interesting and interactive. Me, my younger brother, our parents, uncle and grandma all joined the tour and it was fantastic! The guide (Marielle) was very funny and caresmatic. She knew history about every corner of Montmartre and told us funny anekdotes throughout the tour! We learned how Parisians act, date and live and a lot about... More

I loved the walking tour. My guide was Mark and it was a rainny day of November and only myself and a couple showed up. And Mark keeps the enthusiasm all the time, like if he was speaking for thousand people. Always open space to question, making observations going beyond the thing we alredy knew about Montmartre.

My adult son and daughter had no real memories of their last time in Paris and Montmarte. We didn't know we were in for such a rare treat. Marielle spent 3 hours with us on Monday afternoon, giving us the real scoop on Montmarte's past and insights on present day life. She clearly loves her job, her heritage, and the... More

This is a late review and my guide (Emily?? I forgot her name) had informed us that she was moving to Germany soon and we were one of her last tours. So I'm sure she's gone from Paris now. However, this tour was so good. Our guide had such a wonderful energy and great acting skills. It was entertaining and... More

We did the Culturefish walking tour of Montmartre on a cold November evening, with Pierre and half a dozen other tourists from around the globe. Over almost 3 hours, Pierre regaled us with fascinating insights into the history of this famous area of the city, its bohemian cast and much, much more. Culturefish is a small family-run enterprise, competing in... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighborhood Profile
Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
