My husband and I did the Culturefish Tour of Montmartre and really enjoyed it. The tour was well thought out, leaving us with a better understanding of not only the neighborhood and it's importance in history, but of art in general and of some of the habits of the locals today which can sometimes be badly interpreted by travlers like...

The CultureFish tours really gave me a whole different perspective of Paris. I expected a dry factual tour, and instead literally lived the story of Paris! Our guide Anya led us through the streets filling us with colorful and informative stories about the places, people, and significance of pivotal moments in the rich history. After our tour, I felt a... More

Fantastic tour of some of the tourist highlights of the city. Lots of history about Paris was included and told in an engaging way by our lovely tour guide Anya. She really took the time to personalise our tour, was on hand to answer every question we had, and knew the city very well. We were lucky enough to be... More

I took this tour in Paris for the first time, and loved was amazed by the knowledge of the tour guide , friendly way of explaining, and learning something about the cultural differences as well. Needless to say, got a lot of context and history of every place we visited. Kudos to the culture fish team. I highly recommend this... More

We happened across a culturefish tour the first time in Paris and loved it so much that not only did it set the standard for all our walking tours throughout europe ( none of which were close to be as interesting and fun) but we then came back to paris over a year later to finish the Montmart tour

The Montmartre tour was absolutely fantastic! I'm so happy that I made time to take this tour as our guide truly provided a solid overview of this very special area of Paris. There were so many wonderful and interesting stories during the 2+ hours; what I loved most was feeling as if we were walking through an art gallery. I... More

Our family of 5 had a great time with Pierre in Paris. We loved that he not only showed us the sights, but he also reminded us of the history and culture of Paris!

We had one day in Paris so we wanted to do something that would provide us with some idea of what Paris was about. We joined a walking Culturefish Tour with Culturefish. We loved it. We walked for a couple of hours with Anya as our guide and about 10 other nice people (larger than normal for these tours) and... More

My wife and I have been to Paris a few times and we always try to do one of the "free" tours. We decided to try CultureFish this time and were extremely pleased. We did the "Must Do" tour and our guide was Anya (born in Indiana in the USA). Only a few people showed up (hot day) and I... More

I had Donovan as our guide for the Montmartre tour. The tour lasted for about 2 hours, and there were around 15 people in my group. Donovan is very knowledgeable about the history of Paris and arts in general. He did not only show us the sights, but explained the stories behind in great details. Donovan's tour is also very...

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.
