Met our very informative tour guide, Derek close to Blanche metro station close to the Moulin Rouge. Excellent tour which was not rushed, and at a steady reasonable pace. Visited many of the iconic areas within Montmartre, which I am sure we would not have...More

I joined the Montmartre and Marais. Unfortunately the Notre Dame tour wasn’t available on that day. Nevertheless, the tour with Derek was amazing with all the fun facts he gave away which I guess couldn’t be found in most history books. You can also get...More

We went on the Marais Free Tour with Derek and really enjoyed it. Nice pace, lots of important and fun information, easy-going, yet professional tour guide. La Marais is a must-see, must-walk, must-experience, from the Hotel Sully to the Pompidou Center, from the best macarons...More

Chris was the best guide! His tour of Le Marais took us from the Dark Ages to the French Revolution to the present day, full of insights on history, architecture and culture. He’s the most genuinely personable walking tour guide I’ve met. I fully recommend!

I had been to Montmartre many times before, but this time I discovered other things I didn’t know. Primarily we chose Chris as his tour is a one man operation. He is energetic, vibrant, pleasant and funny. He tries his best for you.

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

The recommended tip is €12. The company charges the guides €6 per person on the walking tour. This is one of the reasons the guide takes a photo at the end of the tour, so the company can work out how much the tour guide... More
