Walking is definitely the best way to see Montmartre and this tour gave us the opportunity to do it accompanied by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. Our guide, Gil, was American and had only been living in Paris for about a year but his knowledge of the area and its history was impressive. We would perhaps have preferred a little more discussion of Montmartre's 18th century history, whereas Gil focused a lot on the modern art movement, including street art. We would definitely recommend this tour - wear comfortable shoes and plan some time after the tour to visit one of the bistros or patisseries you will pass by as you walk.
We paid for the two day ticket. We got on the bus at the Place De La Concorde on our first day handed over our printed ticket and was given our 2 day tickets without any fuss. The commentary is very good through the given headphones and we initially went on the grand tour which was very informative and took in all the main attractions along the Seine. We then spent the next 2 days visiting a number of the attractions, using the bus. We also did the Montmartre tour. Friendly and helpful staff, buses stopped very near to all main attractions. A must for first time travellers to Paris.
Enjoyed this back side of Montmartre walking tours, but wished to get to Sacre Coeur from the Front. Should spend time (with extra fee and with 300 steps to clim up) for Wonderful

This is an excellent way to see part of Montmartre, and the pace is one suitable for adults. Our informative and friendly English speaking guide was excellent. As the path is mainly uphill on our way to see artists' studios, windmills, and Sacre Coeur, our guide stopped at various points to add his insights and stories about each place. After reaching the the church, the tour ends allowing visitors to go into the church, or wind their way back down to the main streets. The tour guide was able to direct us back to the starting point. Good value and a great guide.
I was really happy with this tour, we went to many great parts of Montmartre that seemed to be relatively hidden from tourists.
This was a wonderful tour but you have to be able to walk the steep hills. Our guide was fun and informative. It made me have a much better appreciation for Montmartre.
The guide did a wonderful job. He was interested in the history of Montmartre and so made it interesting to the listner.
Walking tour at pleasant pace with interesting factshistory of Montmartre and its historical artistic residents. Well done by FTB-Paris.
\\great! The drivers were very helpful and friendly to this non french speaking couple. The bus stops were well spaced, the whole trip taking more than 2 hours, giving us a good idea of where we could then take a walk. I would have liked to see Montmartre on the itinery.
My daughter 14 and I did this tour and really enjoyed the guide, the insights, and the experience. Just long enough to keep us interested, and not too much information overload. The guide covered Montmartre history, art, personalities, local quirky information, and even introduced us to the current wave of street artists found around the area, so when we walked through other parts of Paris, we were always on the lookout for these small street-art finds.
Excellent way to get a good overview of Montmartre.

Doing what: Pastry and Dessert Course in Paris
The course was a lovely thing to do in Paris but I had difficulty finding the venue in Montmartre.
We had a great time and learned lots of new facts about the artists who lived in Montmartre.

Doing what: Montmartre and Sacre Coeur Walking Tour in Paris
Our tour guide was a nice girl. You get to learn about the famous inhabitants of Montmartre and the tour ends in front of the Sacre Coeur. Just be sure to wear extra comfy shoes cause most of this walk is going up and down hills. I enjoyed it very much.

Doing what: Paris City Tour by Minivan, Seine River Cruise and Lunch at the Eiffel Tower
The tour guide was great; however, the van was not suitable for sightseeing. The windows weren't big enough, and the people sitting in the middle really couldn't see much. It would have been nice if the van had had only window seats and a high roof, so the windows could be larger. That way everyone would have been able to see well. I feel we would have seen more in a sightseeing bus. The Eiffel Tower and Montmartre experiences were great.
