What people are saying about Place du Tertre

Our tour guide, Francois was exceptional! He was experienced, knowledgable and very entertaining. I would never have known the stories behind the area just walking around by myself. He was animated and put on a performance, acting out artists through different voices. So fun! The walk was beautiful and we went at an appropriate pace for the group. I would highly recommend this tour for the history lesson and a different side of Paris!

My boyfriend and I were in Paris for a few days and this tour was one of the best experiences we had! Montmartre is so charming and has a rich history that is fascinating to learn about. Our guide Alberto is a passionate storyteller that kept our tour group engaged and entertained the entire time. He also gave many recommendations of places to eat and drink at and things to see and do, which we really appreciated!

Our guide Dawie is a great guy who knows a lot about the history of Montmartre and he managed to give us great insights on this beautiful part of the city and its history that comprises for example Vincent van Gogh, Dalida, Toulouse-Lautrec and last but not least The Faboulos Destiny of Amélie Poulain. Definitely recommended!
