We did the Montmartre walking tour on the last full day of our two week trip to France--after having visited museums, cathedrals, and monuments for most of the trip, this was a refreshing break from the routine sights. Pierre provided so much history and interesting tidbits about the area, linking it to famous artists and paintings...well worth the time. While... More

It was quite spectacular! We didn't want to do the usual sites of Paris and the tour of Montmartre was a perfect way to spend the day giving you a true scope of its rich art history. Our guide's passion and love for the city came though beautifully and made the tour even more memorable.

Loved our Paris tour with Pierre. He was sweet, funny and above all very informative. His love for the city made the tour extra special and interesting. Highly recommend this tour if you want to get a true feeling of Paris from the past into the future.

Since it was our first visit to Paris we wanted to familiarize ourselves before just going exploring on our own. I read great reviews of Culturefish Tours so I tried to book both tours but too far in advance. I received an email response from Pierre who told me not to worry, he would make sure we had reservations for... More

Pierre was funny and informative. He communicated his deep love for the area and hit us with some great stories about the artists that have lived there over the years.

We took a 2 hour Monmarte tour with Pierre and it was excellent. We learned a lot of fascinating information about the city and we especially loved the cultural tidbits, which added an interesting twist to your typical tour. I would highly recommend a tour with culturefish!

We had a great time on the walk up Montmarte. Our guide was very informative. I love art, so it was a no-brainer for me to do this. Our guide also gave us great advice on a place to eat in the area which turned out to be very good as well as affordable.

Our family of four joined a group totaling twelve on a 2-1/2 hour walking tour of the Montmarte area of Paris. Pierre was our tour guide. He not only told us stories about the history of Montmarte but shared culture tips about Paris. The time flew and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire tour!! As a side note, our tour was... More

We took this walking tour with Marc who is an excellent raconteur. He led a group of us 10-12 people through some important places of central Paris (some bylanes too), all the while sharing excellent nuggets of information on French history and the daily Parisian life. This is a wonderful must-do tour which I suggest should be taken at the... 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.
