Pierre did a great job! Montmartre is a pretty unique area which has attracted artists and bohemians over the decades and combining relevant historical detail with cultural insights made the walk particularly interesting from the start at Blanche metro station to the top at the Sacre Couer and terminating downhill at Abesses station. Although it lasted just over two and... More

We did the "Must Do" tour in Paris and were very pleased. Marco was our tour guide and did a great job. He was funny, informative, and kept things moving along. We had a small group of about 10 people, which was perfect. I like the culture class pieces that are worked into the tour to help outsiders understand Parisian... More

This is how a guided tour should be! I always wanted to explore the Montmartre area and know about it's exciting historical and cultural significance. I could not have asked for a better experience. Pierre was a wonderful guide - full of energy, enthusiasm and stories. He can make anyone fall in love with this lovely area. The walk is... More

While in Paris for 5 days, we did both tours and they were both excellent! The "Must Do Tour" had all the historic bits of Paris, while the "Montmartre Tour" focused on the unbelievable artists that were residing in that area all at the same time. Both tours were different and great from different reasons and personal interests. Pierre was... More

I highly recommend doing the early tour, chances are the group will be a little smaller than the afternoon. Guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. My wife and I both had a great time. And afterwards our guide have a lot of helpful tips, even have us his metro map as we hadn't picked one up yet.

Eight of us did a private walking tour in June 2015. Our guide was Pierre and he was excellent. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining. We did their "Heart of Paris" tour that took a little over 4 hrs. We were only in Paris a couple of days before we picked up a River Cruise, or we would have arranged to have... More

We did the "Must See" and the Montmartre tours in one day! It was a full day and we learned a lot from our very knowledgable guide Matty. The pace was perfect for our group, ranging from 13 years old to 58 years old. It was fun learning the little bits of history and "culture clash" tips you otherwise might... More

I took the free walking tour of Montmartre area (one of the few free tours for this area). Our guide Matty was very good - he had a very animated style of talking, had lots of good stories to share, and was very polite & helpful! The Montmatre area is unbelievably beautiful - it takes you back to very interesting... More

We did the "must see" walking tour with Marco. He did an excellent job showing us the sites of Paris. The tour is 2 1/2 hours and goes by very quick. Marco is very interactive answering everyone's questions. The tour was a great way for our family to get acclimated to Paris. We loved hearing about the cultural differences. I... More

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.
