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!

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.
