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

Do this tour if you prefer interesting conversation in small groups - as opposed to tape recordings of potted history in boats or buses stuffed to the brim! No need to book in advance - really convenient. Guide Pierre so enthusiastic, humorous and really interesting. Mixed low key group on our morning and a stress free, pleasant and fun way... More

We decided to show up for this at the last minute, and we are so glad that we did! We saw so many things and learned so many stories about Montmartre that we otherwise never would have known! The tour guide was so friendly and provided us with a lot of "good to know" information, such as the social and... More

The tour was great! We learned so much about Paris, and it was told in such an enjoyable way! Our guide Pierre was absolutely amazing! He took the time to talk to each and every person individually. Highly recommend both tours.

Culturefish is a great way to orient yourself with Paris. They have 2 tours, one through the centre of Paris and the other through Montmartre—we did both. You will learn about the history, art and culture of Paris and make feel more connected to everything you see around you by the end of these tours. Their story-telling style style is... More

My 20 year old daughter and I went on the Heart of Paris tour with Pierre and it exceeded our expectations in every way. He was engaging, knowledgeable and entertaining. While he grew up in the US, his love for Paris in contagious. This tour really "made" our brief trip to Paris and we wished we'd had time to take... More

We totally recommend this tour. Our guide "Pierre" was kind, good looking and totally competent. He knew how to present rather boring content like history in a very entertaining yet not silly way. And his English was perfect (which makes sense since he's actually from the USA). The tour took nearly 3 hours but it felt shorter. We hope next... More
