A walk for people who like puzzles & want something different. Eric delivers in a delicious French accent snippets of information on art, science, culture and Parisian history. How does theatre tradition and sayings differ in France, which womaniser started forensic procedures, how to wish a French friend 'good luck' and more. The walk was in Jan. with rain expected,...

Vincent, our guide was charming, energetic and enthusiastic. On a day when fingers and toes were frozen he was able to keep us all going. I would have loved some of the Jewish quarter to have been included but c'est la vie.

I joined the 11am tour that starts opposite Moulin Rouge. I was in quite a large group of about 25. Our female guide was excellent and full of energy. She took us to the venue where the film Amelie was set. Then past many wonderful small shops. Our guide did a great job of pointing out what to look for... More

My wife and I did this tour to "kill some time" and it was awesome! Unfortunately cannot remember the name of our tour guide, but she was incredible! Probably the best walking tour we've taken anywhere in the world! All the sights and severely of Montmartre and Paris, awesome! Tour ends at the beautiful Sacre Cour.

Astrid was a wonderful guide, she's a local who loves her neighbourhood and took pride in sharing it with us. She gave us great insight into the history as well as how people lived there today. The tour felt personalised, she gave us tips on where to eat and buy goods. Would definitely feel more confident exploring Montmartre solo after... More

We had the tour of Monmartre with Astrid. She was really kind and helpful. Thanks for all the information and the tips. Despite the cold weather, she was very cheerful and enthusiastic. We will strongly recommend you to our friends and congratulations for your job! Victoria and Gonzalo

We didn't plan but accidentally bumped into Montmartre walking tour group outside of Blanche metro station and decided to take part in the last minute. It turned out to be a pleasant experience. Sean, our guide, speaks very good English and knows the area pretty well so was able to explain the history with some added info he prepared beforehand.... More

Excellent! We had a wonderful experience. Our guide, Alex, provided wonderful history and backstory to all of the places we showed us. We went to a wonderful cafe with scrumptious pastries, too. Thanks so much (and thanks so much Alex!) for another great Paris memory!

The Montmarte tour is not for someone who is unable to climb stairs - the views are stunning and the ability to navigate this interesting neighborhood takes a local to lead the way. The tour was informative and intimate. I recommend it. However, There were no bathroom breaks and there was no information after the tour to direct us to... More
