I thoroughly enjoyed this leisurely tour of Montmartre. The guide Harri K. is charismatic, knowledgeable, and passionate about the history of the area and its former resident artists. He brought the area at the time of Monet and Renoir back to life for me. I wished it could have lasted longer - I'm sure there is much more to discover.

Our tour guide Francois was amazing. He modified the tour according to the group's interests and has an entertaining storytelling ability. The close to 3 hour tour flew by and we got such a deep background of the art scene in Montmarte. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris!

Our guide was very friendly and informative. We have really enjoyed trying all the different food Montmartre has to offer. It is a perfect way to learn about the area while trying local pastries, sweets, cheese and wine. This tour is also vegetarian friendly. We had an amazing time on this tour!
