Both tours are excellent. I had been to Paris many times before, but these were my first walking tours, and I kept thinking, why didn't I do this earlier? In addition to all the sights we visited, we learned some cultural things that really added to the experience.

Pierre's tour of Monmarte was such a fantastic way to see the city! His historical knowledge of the area and passion for sharing his knowledge brought to life the neighborhood. A true must-do in paris!

Found a flyer for this tour half an hour before the tour started and went on a whim, excellent decison :) Our guides name was Pierre and he was lovely. He spoke with great passion about the area and its people and he made a great effort to get to know the people on the tour. He was not pushy... More

I had such an amazing time touring Montmarte with Culturefish! Tours. I know that there are larger companies that are well known for doing the free group tours, but Culturefish! Tours is definitely the way to go! I did not feel overwhelmed with too many people in the group, and Pierre was awesome! Lastly, yes, this is a "free" tour,... More

One of the best walking tours ever. Pierre is bustling with energy, enthusiasm and motivation, he is there to offer a funny story or anecdote about every single house or monument in Montmartre. He manages to build up a whole world of the past just in front of your eyes, pampers imagination with striking facts and comparisons and leaves you... More

Pierre was great and really knew his stuff and obviously a passionate guy, I enjoyed all the stories and information and he was helpful in answering the random questions we threw at him too. This is FREE so given some of these things charge £50 a head then ask for a tip why would you not go!!

I loved the tour. I did Montmarte tour with Pierre. We had a small group Jan 1st. Pierre is very passionate about what he does and his passion oozes out through the stories he tells about the city. I recommended this tour to others and noone has been disappointed so far

Did The Heart of Paris Tour. One of the best walking tours i had! Pierre was our guide on a cold December. The energy he brings in!!! Love how the tour is setup, the way Pierre morphs into characters and how animated his story telling is. It just adds to the sights we visit. I missed the montmartre tour this... More

Pierre was phenomenal. Really knowledgeable, super friendly, and has created a great tour through what is now my favorite district in Paris. He was great to talk to while walking between stops. Would highly recommend for anyone as while the district is beautiful, without a guide you could easily walk right past extremely important places without knowing their significance.

I took a tour with culturefish and it was absolutely amazing. It is a very well rounded tour that gives you the history behind the places you visit in a very engaging way. I took my tour with Enya and she was absolutely amazing. Very informational and entertaining. I definitely recommend anyone to take this tour.
