Loved this tour!!! Found out after returning home that Degas was buried in the cemetery we visited. This should have been mentioned! Other than that little thing, it was perfect! Planning on doing it again next summer!

This was a great tour! Our guide was exceptional- he went over and above with information about the area. You could tell he was very passionate.

Gil took us on a great round about path to the Sacre Coeur. I really liked the length and pace of the tour. Two hours was just enough history and information to spark my curiosity and want to come home and read more but not so long that I got tired or bored. Gil also pointed out some more contemporary art, street art, that was not obvious to me.

Our tour guide Inga from Sandleman Tours was excellent. Even though the weather was cold and wet and it was a 6pm tour and she was very energetic, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area. Great tour through the back streets of Montmartre - and she did a wonderful job. I've been here many times without a guide and unknowingly passed so many landmarks - this is a must see tour with guide

This was an excellent tour and exceeded our expectations. The guide was so knowledgeable about the Montmartre area and made the lives of the impressionist painters who lived there come alive. It was just the right pace with completion at beautiful Sacre Coeur. Loved it!
