“Informative Paris tour of Monmartre and Sacre coeur”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

My mother and I prebooked this free walking tour after reading reviews on tripadvisor. The walking did not disappoint. Chris the guide was very knowledgeable and professional. He moved the group along and showed us many sights that we would not have seen walking on our own.

Highly recommended and tip at the end of the tour based on how pleased you were with the tour guide and tour generally.

“Awesome and Fun Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Did this tour on Nov 25. Chris' walking tour of Montmarte was fun and informative. A great way to see the back streets (not touristy areas) of Paris and learned a lot of history too!

Thanks Chris! and more power!

“Private tour with Chris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I emailed Chris a couple of months before our trip to Paris and organised a private tour for our family. Chris collected us as arranged from our apartment in the 7th, took us to our closest Metro station and accompanied us to Montmartre. He ensured we had Metro maps, helped us buy tickets and gave us some handy hints for using the Metro during our stay in Paris. Very quickly we felt like we were sightseeing with a friend rather than touring with someone we had just met as he looked after us as though we were friends, not just paying clients. It was great touring Montmartre with Chris as he is a local and passionate about the area; we got more than just a tour of all the significant historical sights, we also got an insight as to what it is like to live in this unique neighbourhood. Chris is engaging, funny and easy going and was easily able to keep us all interested during the 3+ hours we spent with him. One of the best advantages of having a private tour was that we had Chris all to ourselves and could ask lots of questions we had about Paris, which was helpful as this tour was at the beginning of our stay. Chris is a great guide and ambassador for Montmartre, and Paris, and we would definitely use his services again. Thanks Chris, see you next time!

“Great way to know some history about Paris, and also some fun facts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I took this free tour both times I were in Paris. It meets by the fountain on Place St Michel at 11am, and there are English and Spanish groups.

It takes almost 3 hours walking, but it is really nice. The guides know a lot about the city history and also tell fun facts about places.

It covers many touristic attractions, but this is not the best time to take photos, because they tell the stories and go back to walking, so I`d recommend paying attention on the tour, and later coming back to take better pictures of the place you like the most.

Obs. it is a free tour but in the end you can tip the guides if you think it was worth it :)

“Wonderful Tours with City Free Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We took 2 tours with Chris, around Montmarte and Jewish quarter/Marais and also took the traditional city tour with Tamara. Both guides were great, knowledgeable, friendly and interesting. We particularly enjoyed seeing Montmarte with Chris, he is a local and you could tell he has a real passion for the area. It's a great way to see the city and learn about its history and interesting facts. We would definitely recommend any of the tours to visitors to Paris. City Free Tours was also very responsive with respect to the reservations and inquiries.
