Most excellent tour of various sites in Montmartre. Wish it were 3 hours instead of 2. Does involve a lot of hill climbing. Suggest reversing the tour direction to start at the top (Sacre Coeur) and walk downhill. were 2 assistant staff whose chatter was disruptive to listening to the guide

Enjoyed the walking tour with Sonja. She is very knowledgeable about the area and was enjoyable to listen to. Wish we could have gone closer to a few of the highlights. We stopped short of them by a block and they were discussed from a corner. Not sure why we didn't go closer.

I was very impressed with the tour guide. Great background and knowledge of the area. Needed a mike, hard to hear sometimes with the traffic noise.

My son's and I loved this trip! Sorry that I don't remember our guides name because she was wonderful. She was very informative, personable and funny. She kept everyone interested. Montmartre and Sacre Coeur were definitely worth seeing. I would suggest this trip to others.

We really enjoyed this relaxing and interesting tour. The pace was perfect for taking in the various stops and taking pictures when desired. Our follow-up questions were welcome, and Sonya was extremely knowledgeable about the entire area, its history, and its connections to the people and culture. Loved it!

We could hardly hear the guide and some of the highlighted stops were interesting while others were note. I thought stops where artists had lived were interesting but I did not enjoy the stop at the cemetary. By the time I got to the top, I decided to skip the Sacree Couer Church which I had been especially interested in seeing.
