Excellent tour with Francoise. He is very knowledgeable and personable - took us all through the “nooks and crannies” of Montmartre and gave us a real sense of the history of this neighborhood in Paris as well as what it is evolved into today. Lots o great insights into the artists who lived there and how it shaped life in Montmartre. Really Superb! I’d been to the area twice before but this felt very fresh.

Our guide François was great! He lives in Montmartre and is funny and energetic and seems to love his job. We loved the information about the artists and architecture. The walk was not strenuous (it is uphill, though) and there are many stops to make it that much easier. Thant you, François, for a great time!

Michelle is an informative and genuinely benevolent tour guide. I’m familiar with Paris but he added an element of education and discovery of Montmartre not known to myself or my guest. And what I am aware of he brought to a new level of understanding.

Enjoyed the history and the interesting nooks and crannies of this beautiful neighborhood. Guide was fun, entertaining and kept it moving along.

A pleasant approach to this friendly district of Paris
