Paris Hidden Montmartre Small Group Walking Tour
From $40.28
Overview

Explore the charming streets of Montmartre with this small group tour. Your guide will take you to a mix of iconic landmarks and off-the-beaten-track sights, from the Moulin Rouge windmill to the home of Vincent Van Gogh. You'll also get to try croissants at an award-winning bakery, explore the vineyards of Montmartre, and pass through a secret passageway into a cobbled back street.

What to Expect

Welcome to Montmartre, the Paris of your dreams!  Our tour begins opposite a quintessential Parisian landmark: the Moulin Rouge windmill. We’ll start the climb up the hill, spotting the café where the film Amélie was shot and Van Gogh’s home as we go. 

Our first stop will be at one of Paris’ best bakers, winner of many prestigious prizes for its bread and pastries. Here we will taste one of France’s most famous patisserie: a deliciously buttery croissant. Is there any better way to start your morning in Paris? 

After learning how to say “je t’aime” in 250 different languages and listening to the crazy legend about the first Parisian bishop, we’ll climb a few more stairs to discover one of Montmartre’s loveliest squares and the one-time home of Pablo Picasso. Hear the stories of struggle endured by many local artists here before they found fame and fortune. 

From here we’ll pass by the house of Dalida, one of France’s most famous singers and an iconic figure in Montmartre. Find out more about her dramatic life and why she became an icon for the gay community in Paris and beyond. 

We’ll pass by one of the last remaining windmills in Paris, now totally privatised, then we’ll promenade down the “Champs-Élysées” of Montmartre, where we’ll see some of the most expensive houses in the capital. Your guide will then lead you through a totally secret passage that reveals not only one of the best views over Paris but also one of the cutest cobbled streets in the city! 

Next up are the famous vineyards of Montmartre. Almost on the top of the hill they overlook the suburbs of Paris and produce a surprisingly good red wine. Opposite the vineyard is the entrance to the famous Cabaret, Le Lapin Agile, where your guide will tell you the legend of Lolo, the painting donkey.

Finally we’ll walk to the iconic Basilica Sacré-Coeur, where we’ll stop to admire a view of the church from a perspective that very few tourists know about, leading onto our grand finale of another stunning Paris panorama. 

Before you go, don’t forget to pick your guide’s brains for the latest on what to see and do during your stay in Paris.
