What You Can Expect
See the venues that influenced their art, like the building where Van Gogh lived when he moved here from Holland. Van Gogh lovers believe it was here that he really found his personality as an artist, and then never looked back! Visit the Montmartre windmill that Renoir featured in his scandalous masterpiece Bal du moulin de la Galette, and walk past the Moulin Rouge cabaret that famously inspired Toulouse-Lautrec’s distinctive style of painting.
After 1.5 hours of strolling around Montmartre, learning about Impressionist art and its place in Paris, head to the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur to admire the spectacular view over Paris with your guide. This is where your tour finishes and before leaving, your guide will hand over your skip-the-line ticket to Musée d’Orsay, Paris’ famous Impressionist museum that you can visit independently.
Your guide will give you directions if you want to visit Musée d’Orsay straight away, or you can use your ticket to visit on another day of your choice. This mesmerizing gallery holds Paris’ largest collection of Impressionist art inside its beautiful building, a train station turned museum.
This was our favorite. Our guide was a lovely French woman, who took us to the bakery that won Best Baguette in 2015, we all shared the baguette while she explained how they select the winner, by smelling the bread, crunching it, and of course tasting it!
Walking through Montmartre, it was amazing see where Picasso, Van Gogh lived and the various places where many artists got inspiration for their paintings. The best part is going into Musee d'Orsay and seeing their masterpieces.
A lovely fall day to wander the streets of Montmarte! Our guide was very knowledgable about the area and the artists who made this their home. It is a difficult place to walk if you don't know where you are going. We saw both windmills, the last vineyard in Paris as well as import ants homes and artist studios. Great views of Paris and it added to our afternoon visit to the Musee d'Orsay-must do!
We totally enjoyed the tour - our guide was knowledgeable and charming. So glad we found this tour option. Also loved the museum. Thank you so much.
Marion was very knowledgeable and interesting. We saw parts of the Montmartre we would have ignored. Plus, she knew the best bakeries.
Nice walk through Montmarte. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.
Informative and interesting walking tour
The tour guide was very knowledgable about art and the history of the area. We really enjoyed the tour.
Excellent tour. Our tour guide Quentin was really knowledgeable about impressionist artists and their history in the Montmartre area. Fabulous views of Sacre Couer at the end of the tour.
Our tour guide was very charming and informative. She was able to show us areas of Montemartre that I had never seen before, as well as the artistic history behind the neighborhood. You dont even have to be a fan of impressionist art to appreciate this incredible Paris which is not considered Paris by residents, you'll find out more about that. Highly recommend it!
Wonderful tour! Olivier, our guide, was knowledgeable and charming.
