My husband and I spent a week in Paris in early November, and had the opportunity to go on the Montmartre walking tour. Ended up being one of the highlights of our entire trip. Our guide was Mark, who was entertaining and informative, & kept things moving but still allowed time for questions/photos. Excellent information about the area's history, and... More

Went to the Montmartre with Mark and it was awesome. Chalked full of information about the area as well as Parisian culture. It seems like the company is still very young and small, but the quality of the tour is very much there. Would totally do another tour with this company.

This tour is the best of the top 100 trip advisory tours because it does something that no other guided tour will do. Having done many other tours in Europe, this is the only one that teaches one to interact with Parisians through Montmartre history and culture. My guide, Marielle, revealed the layers of Montmartre literary, artistic, and social life... More

The guides from Culturefish tours give you a great walk through not only the city of paris, but also the history and culture of paris. It was a great pleasure to do the walks around the city centre, and around Mont-martre. Moreover, the guides are very interested in the people in the group they are guiding, and they will give...

A gift for my husband for graduating his post-ed degree was one of the best deals we had. Great people, great tours and best time to see Paris on such short notice. See the best places, get through short cuts, learn tips that locals have and find your hidden treasures! Enjoyed the guides, the weather, and all the little stop... More

The guide we had was Mark and he was perfect as a guide---knowledgeable, funny and engaging. I lived in Montmartre for a year in the '70's and most of what he told us was new to me. The walk was about 3 hours which I felt was about right.

The tour was amazing, Mark was very knowledgeable about Paris and fun to tour with. He showed us the most important landmarks if the city during the trip. We liked it so much that we did the Paris Must Do Tour and the Montmartre. We noticed that we were not the only ones that liked the tours as much as... More

This was the best way to get an introduction to Paris. Not only did we get to explore the city and learn about history but we also got an orientation to the French culture which was very interesting and good to know. The guide was very knowledgeable. I recommend anyone going to Paris to take a tour with Culture Fish!

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.
