Excellent tour in a "must experience" Paris neighborhood

Out guide, Anastasia was excellent. She has a strong art history background and was able to bring color, context, and life to the landmarks. This was our favorite neighborhood in Paris and I'm certain we would have missed so much of its history had we not taken a guided walking tour. Highly recommend.

Exceptional tour - we had a great time experiencing Montmartre

Fred (our guide) was excellent. He shared so much history with us about Montmartre and provided us with context so we could really experience the district. Super casual and friendly with a very personalised experience. Would take a tour with Fred anytime we are back in Paris. Thank you

Loved everything about this place. The guide, Oliver was amazing and so well versed in art and art history. He really made the city come alive with the knowledge he presented. The area was gorgeous and I couldn’t have asked for a better tour to end my trip.

She showed us patiently the beautiful streets and places and my family and my self enjoyed this tour very much. I totally recommend to anybody to book this tour.

A great way to learn the history about famous artists, buildings, etc.
