My boyfriend and I took the free Montmarte Tour with Donovan. We learned a lot about the history of the area. This area is drastically different from the heart of Paris. Donovan was very informative and very knowledgeable about the area.

We did the Monmartre tour and it was great! Donovan, our guide, walked us around and told us about the history behind every interesting place. We learned a lot about the historic significance of the neighborhood and how the artists who lived there shaped the modern arts. Bottom line - it's a must tour in Paris!

My husband and I took the Heart of Paris walking tour on Monday. We were delighted to meet Pierre at the starting point and were also introduced to Kat who was a new guide starting out with the company. Unfortunately we commenced the tour and Pierre said goodbye and Kat took us on one of her first solo tours. I... More

We took a tour of Monmartre today. The young lady who was the tour guide was excellent. She put a first class effort in with friendly and informative advice. We had not been to Monmartre before and we highly recommend it as a tour destination.

We did the Heart of Paris walk within hours of arriving in Paris. Fabulous introduction for first timers in the city. Pierre is an outstanding storyteller and his love of Paris is obvious. We learnt a lot and felt it added greatly to our understanding of the history of Paris as well as the nature of Parisian/French culture. We would... More

Highly recommended. Family business by passionate people. Pierre was the one who brought us around. Although it was raining, the tour was still awesome!

If you're a first-timer in Paris, this is really the go-to tour. Pierre mixes in art, history, and French cultural faux-pas that will prepare even the most hesitant travelers. He'll circle around the Notre Dame, taking you over famous bridges, along the river, and end at the Louvre. It's not the most in depth tour, but Pierre could really spin... More

Everyone who visits Paris needs to do a CultureFish Tour. We are a couple of Canadians (from Montreal) who visited Paris for the first time last week. We decided to do the Montmarte tour by CultureFish. Our guide Pierre was fantastic! He was so knowledgable and enthusiastic. He made us feel very welcome and gave a very personalized tour. We...

Even if you are a seasoned traveler and have been to Paris many times this is a tour well worth taking. Pierre, who started this company with his siblings, is a wealth of information, not only about history and places but about culture and every day things in Paris. We did the classic tour starting on ile De la cite... More
