Chris was very knowledgeable about this area and organized a good route leading up to Sacre Couer through the neighborhood. We enjoyed the artists area at the top where many were doing portraits of visitors. We followed Rue Caulaincourt with its street-side flea market downhill...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

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, 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

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
