We went on the Art Tour in Montmartre. We had Pierre as our tourguide, who was witty, funny, knowledgable, interested and interacted with us on a personal level. He really gave us a good feel for the place, explained everything very well and he answered all our questions. I'm sure all the other tours are great and his brother and... More

Pierre was a superb guide, in what is a delightful, family run tour company. Extremely friendly and helpful, and also pointed some jazz bars after he learned about our musical interests. Culturefish is unique, in that Pierre points out and illustrates the cultural differences that separate Paris from the rest of the world . A really pleasant atmosphere - it's... More

I think this tour was probably the best tour I could have ever picked. The thing that got me to go on this tour was the pay what you want which is probably the best idea ever for both tourists and the tour guides. The tour itself was jam packed with amazing information and Pierre did his best to fit... More

I was in Paris for one day and decided to go on the Culture Fish tour. Their niche in the walking tour market is that they provide great insight on the French Culture and how the cultural differences can cause misunderstandings among cross cultures. Our tour guide Anya was great and very informative. She was very knowledgeable and went above... More

This was a fantastic tour. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Matty. He was energetic and very informative. We did two tours with culturefish and we're glad we did! I wish you were in other cities!

I had an absolute blast on this tour. Matty, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about Paris. I loved that the tour not only combined information about the history of Paris but also cultural information that came in very handy for the rest of my trip. In 2.5 hours, this tour allowed me to see all the top sites... More

Very informative introduction for the trip in Paris from Anya. We could not visit that much place in a 2.5 hours. Thank you.

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.
