This was the second time I did a walking tour of Montmartre, and this one was by far the BEST! Dawie was our guide and he was the best tour guide I’ve ever had! He was so knowledgeable, yet down to Eart and funny! He made my friends and Lee really comfortable and we enjoyed every minute. There were so many interesting facts that we had never heard before and we loved it. I highly, highly recommend this to work or any tour led by Dawie!

Harry is an excellent guide, he is incredibly knowledgeable on current and historical Paris with regards to the area Montmartre and with historical figures, especially artists. He also adds touches of humour to his tour which we really loved.

Great tour. Even in the cold, walking around Montmarte in a small group, being led so passionately by Emmanuel was good fun! Learnt a lot about the place, and was exceptionally thankful for the cafe / bar recommendations :)

Our guide was simply amazing! He took us to all the main attraction spots and was obviously knowledgeable about Montmartre’s history. I truly enjoyed the tour and would gladly recommend it.

The guide talks very lively and in artistic style. You may not be bored suring these couple hours!!
