This tour is the best way to highlight the hidden side of the Montmartre that sadly on your would be missed. Gill our guide was just fantastic with an obvious passion and enthusiasm for the area and made the tour both interesting and fun. A tour not to be missed.
Our guide was Gill and he was so great! He was super smart, kept a perfect pace for our group and was very kind and considerate. He made my first venture to Montmartre a perfect day!
Enjoyed the walking tour of Montmartre....very interesting and educational...Lots to see...Would allow time before or after to visit great eating cafes/restaurants...Great atmosphere.
brilliant guide with only 3 of us on the tour which was great, we must of explored every inch of Montmarte it was such an interesting and such a pretty area with the vineyards hidden away!! and the windmills lovely lovely tour could not of done what we did without a guide with his knowledge and enthusiasm
do not miss it totally brilliant afternoon
This was a great walking tour,gill our tour guide was very informative. The pace was perfect for everyone and we discovered a lot of hidden gems we would never have found on our own. Thank you.
This was a wonderful tour! Our guides were so personable, and knowledgeable of the area. Just bear in mind that you will be doing lots and lots of uphill walking on cobblestone streets. Basically, the tour was an overview, and because we were staying right in Monmartre we were able to come back on another day and visit the Church of San Pierre ( which is the oldest church in Paris) as well as other areas where we were taken. The Church of San Pierre is not to be missed. So so much history within those quiet walls!
Silly people! Don't judge on first impressions/ appearances. Steph has an amazing amount of informative interesting knowledge presented superbly. The tour never lagged and we still wanted more after 2 1/2 hours.
We have 4 more tours booked and would book Steph for all if we could.
Steph is a very pleasant, knowledgeable and most important PASSIONATE tour guide. i love her so much. She knows Montmartre inside out, not only telling us about the historical aspect, but the way she brought us to deeper philosophical view on Montmartre.
I really enjoy the way she lift our moods by her witty point of view. She is refreshing :)
AWSOME and one of the best tours we attended. The guide was outstanding. A great way to start the trip.
Exelent, superb, knowledgeble, smart, funny guide who did all his not easy job with love.
We loved the walking tour of Montmatre, our guide Stephanie was incredibly good at her job and spoke loud and clear which for my Mother who is deaf in one ear was fantastic, first time we've been on a tour and I've not had to repeat everything that was said! Reaching the Sacre Couer was well worth all the walking!
We loved this tour! Our guide was very informative and interesting. We saw things (a small cemetery, van Gogh's home exterior, street art tucked away, the local vineyard, etc.) that we wouldn't have seen or appreciated if we had done this walk on our own. Well worth the price and time!
Kit was a fantastic, informative guide! He brought Montmartre alive! Truly a fantastic tour. We had never been to Paris before and this tour was a perfect way to spend the afternoon.
Excellent small group walking tour that took us from the base of Montmarte to Sacre Coeur. Our guide was well prepared as he led us from the Moulin Rouge, to the cemetary and past the homes of many of the Impressionists. He told it in a very personal way which made it even mor einteresting.
Unfortunately, we missed the walking tour, as we were not aware of the daylight saving changeover. We left the arranged area after waiting for about 20 minutes, thinking that there was a no show. Nevertheless, we did the Montmatre and Sacre Coeur walk ourselves and it is indeed somethng not to miss. Suggest the tour though instead. .
I had not used Viator before but would certainly us of again. The tour guide we had was incredible. Not only did he have a great knowledge of the history of the area but was also an artist so he shared so much information about the artists who inhabited buildings in the area.We saw Moulin Rouge,Moulin de la Galette,cemetery,Sacre Coeur,Au Lapin Agile contrasting parts of Montmartre.The tour lasted 6 hrs. and we were physically and emotionally exhausted but learned so much. The guide was also helpful in helping us find our way home at the end of the tour. This was my best day in Paris.
Fat Tire are one of the best tour operators I've come across in Europe. Previously I had tried their biking tours and this was my first walking tour. Jim was very fun, informative and just good company while walking around Montmartre. Recommend this tour to anyone wantign to explore Paris. This is a way better idea than just going up to Sacre Couer for the obligatory picture.
This was an amazing walking tour. The guide was an English speaker and shared with us all the history of Montmarte. Because it was raining, our group was only 5 people which gave us a better experience and the ability to ask questions. Montmarte was such an influential part of the history of Paris, as was its impact on the art world. My only slightly negative take away was that we ended up at the Sacre Coeur and it wasn't really part of the tour. C'est la vie- it is free to enter Sacre Coeur, and only 8 Euros to go down into the Catacombs. I had arrived early and gone into the church, as well as the Musee de Montmarte (highly recommended), so all in all it was a perfect 2 hours.
Our tour with Kit was excellent. He gave us a perfect blend of history, culture, background stories, and the "life" of Montmartre. One caution: this tour does require a lot of strenuous walking uphill.
I'm so glad I decided to book this walking tour - there's no way I would have 'discovered' most of the things our guide so expertly shared with us. She told us the stories behind the famous buildings and landmarks and made the experience truly special. Thank you!
