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.

We were met by an amazing young French women who was our guide for this tour. She was very informative, very patient, very charming, and we loved every minute of the time we spent with her. We are both in our sixties, and slow to move, and she was very responsive to our needs. The tour took us through the heart of Monmarte, and the commentary was fantastic. We are very interested in Impressionist Artists and this gave us a huge insight into the haunts and homes of these artists. Our tour guide then took us via the Metro the the Musee d'Orsay where we spent the remainder of the afternoon. Would highly recommend this wonderful walking tour of the most gorgeous part of Paris.
An great tour of an old area of Paris. Our guide Tim did an excellent job. He provided a great deal of insight to the area and its history. You'll find the Moulin Rouge, areas where the Impressionist painters got their start, as well as Sacre Coeur, the church that overlooks the city. The area is dotted with cafes and shops. If you wanted to get a feel for the real Paris it's a very worthwhile tour.
