Homer not sure if I spelt that right, was awesome. Funny and informative. I got so much out of this tour. There is walking up a hill involved. But so worth it.
Montmartre is one of my favorite parts of Paris, but I'd never had a official guided tour through this neighborhood. Our tour guide, Marie, was very kind and used lots of humor through the tour which made walking in the rain much easier. She was very knowledgeable about Parisian history and Montmartre history, which are two very separate places. She tied in political history, art history, anecdotal history, famous landmarks of the area, best places for views, common modern street artists, best places to eat--EVERYTHING. She was so passionate about this part of Paris and it showed. Montmartre is beautiful, but until you know what you're looking at, it's not as meaningful. I highly recommend this tour because you will leave it with so much knowledge and a new understanding for a commonly misunderstood neighborhood.
We did this tour on Saturday 9th December 2017 in the morning on a clear cold sunny crisp day in Paris-ideal weather for exploring hidden and hitherto unknown parts of Montmartre. Our guide Laurent hope I've remembered that right, tall chap with beard! was charming, knowledgeable, clearly absolutely committed to sharing his beloved Paris with two old ladies! We learnt so much we didn't know about the Impressionists, the back streets and history of Montmartre away from the ghastly and overcrowded tourist hotspots and were very happy for the little additions we were shown like prize winning boulangeries and the finest patisseries! I cannot recommend this tour and this guide more highly. I will take it again next time I visit Paris, that's for sure.
This tour was a real highlight of our visit to Paris. Our guide was a real Parisian, very knowledgable and passionate of the art and the area and he was a pleasure to stroll the beautiful streets of Montmarte with and see some of the off-the-beaten-path highlights. We visited the Musee d'Orsay the next day without our guide, but it felt like he was still with us some of the time, as the stories he told us stayed with us when we saw the impressionist art, in its original form. The ticket got us past all the queues, which was really welcome on a rainy Sunday.
This tour was amazing!
Our group of 4 adults all found this tour delightful and immensely enjoyed ourselves– Adele brought the Montmartre neighbourhood to life for us with her enthusiasm, passion and local knowledge. Adele had many stories to share along the way, always illuminating our understanding of the original Impressionist artists who settled in Montmartre. Adele was also very entertaining & skilled in charting an intriguing and stimulating walk intermingled with some personal insights. Adele generously shared her local knowledge with her personal recommendations such as support for the local shop owners. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. We booked a variety of tours across our 3 weeks in France and this one with Adele was one of the best.
This tour was amazing!
Excellent guide with lots of good information.
Montmartre was our Favorite part of the trip! Florent was a student in Montmartre, so he was able to give us a true Parisian's look at the area. He also has an excellent sense of humor, and kept us laughing! Go off the beaten tourist path! Well worth it!
