Overview

Spend an afternoon enjoying two of the best things to do in Paris—wandering the cobbled streets of Montmartre and admiring the artistic masterpieces of the Louvre. With a guide, you’ll explore the historically bohemian district of Montmartre, where artists such as Picasso used to live and work. A funicular ride is included to get to the top of the hill, where you can visit Basilique du Sacré-Coeur. Then head to the Louvre, where you have skip-the-line admission to go straight inside and see works by Leonardo da Vinci and other great artists.
  • 4.5-hour Montmartre visit and skip-the-line Louvre Museum tour
  • Stroll the ancient streets and alleyways of Montmartre
  • Take the funicular to the top of the hill for city views
  • Explore the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur independently
  • Enjoy skip-the-line entry to the Louvre Museum
  • See the Mona Lisa andVenus de Milo on a guided tour
Your half-day tour starts at a central location in Paris, where you’ll meet your guide and board your coach or minibus. Head north to Montmartre in the 18th arrondissement, and walk around this lively and charming quarter with your guide.

Learn about Montmartre’s rich history, which dates back many centuries and includes the era when artists like Monet, Dalí, Picasso and Van Gogh lived, worked and socialized here. Hop on the funicular to ride up to the top of the hill, where you can admire a panoramic view over the city. Then head inside Basilique du Sacré-Coeur, known for its Romanesque and Byzantine architecture. You have time to explore the basilica on your own before returning to the bus for the drive to the Louvre.  

When you arrive, cruise past the ticket queue with your skip-the-line admission, and follow your guide along the esteemed hallways of this world-renowned museum. See its best-known pieces such as the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci and Venus de Milo, an ancient Greek statue, and marvel at other works such as Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People and Géricault's The Raft of the Medusa.

When your guided tour of the Louvre ends, you are free to stay at the museum on your own to continue exploring its treasures, or return to your original departure point on the tour bus. (Note: On Wednesdays and Fridays, the Louvre is open later; on these days, it is possible to stay until 9:45pm at no additional charge).

Tour was just ok
From the moment we got there, had to wait 20 min in line to "checkin" at paris vision store
Guides to slow, we lost a lot of time at the louvre with trivial small talk
The first tour guide at montmartre had a microphone and was litteraly "breathing " in our ears

Really a very nice combination tour, I would have liked to see the inside of the basilica with a skip the line entrance there as well. As it was there was not enough time to see inside with how long the wait was. But still a very nice tour, my guide was knowledgeable and had a fresh way of delivering information to keep things interesting. I would suggest to anyone to take the tour on a Friday when the Louvre is open later so you can wander and marvel to your hearts content.

My family and I were very disappointed in the tour overall. There were several problems: The busses were extremely largewanting to pack as many people as they possibly can so it was very challenging driving through most of the tiny street of paris. The tour guide, although seemed like a nice person, was not very knowledgable of the museum exhibit and we could only understand 20 of what she was saying due to a very heavy accent along with horrible headsets. The checking in process was even worse. Terrible customer service. The man inside the agency was yelling and screaming at people. I would not recommend This company CityTour. They try to pack as many tourist as they can and shove them in different groups. Overall, I would never use this company again!!

Best tour I took in Paris. Our tour guide was wonderfully informative and took us to some interesting sites of Montmartre. The Louvre tour hit the main highlights. No line to wait in we walked right in. We booked the tour for a Friday. The Louvre closes at 9:45 pm on Fridays, so after the guided portion of the tour was over, we had time to explore on our own for a few hours.

Viator should consider re-evaluating the relationship with this vendor. After printing out our ticket from our Viator confirmation we were instructed to exchange at an incredibly busy tour office for other tickets for some reason. Everyone in office was unfriendly and unhelpful. At the front of the line, we tried to approach a ticketing desk and were yelled at by a woman NO! GET BACK BEHIND THE LINE!. This was the ONLY rude experience we had in the entire trip to Paris - a terrible way to start. The tour itself was okay. On the way there, there was little commentary besides the importance of getting to the bus on-time although we passed directly by the Opera house - no commentary. We got very little information in Montmartre from the tour guide and we actually lost a portion of the tour group because it was super busy and she seemed to not care if anyone was able to keep up. Instead of looking for them, she asked those still present to remind them to come back to the bus on-time and left. Very little information on the Sacre Coeur which we toured on our own best part - do not miss. The bus was fine and the bus driver was friendly. The Louvre tour was much better - if we had skipped the horrible tour office and weird time in Montmartre and spent the whole time at the Louvre, we would have given a better review. Viator - consider taking this tour in-house as our tour directly through your company was MUCH better.

Great tour, lots to see and great access to the Louvre. The tour guides did not make any effort to interact with the group though, they just seemed to run through their script.

We started with the tour of Montmartre and heard lots of interesting facts from our guide, Jean Louis. The funicular ride is a must especially for people who will be challenged by the uphill climb to the Basilica Sacre Coeur. Next, was our Louvre Museum tour which Jean Louie expertly navigated and pointed out the most important artworks. We will never forget Jean Louie he is very engaging and animated and made the whole tour fun. It was a plus to take this tour on a Friday since the museum closes late and you can stay longer after the tour if one wishes.

This was an excellent tour. Our guide made the event fun and told us a lot about the artists where they lived etc.We got to spend a lot of time at the Louvre after the tour was over and explore it on our own.

The tour was very well organized and our tour guide was very knowledgable. Having a tour guide, particularly in the Louvre was a huge benefit, not to mention the skip the line feature! I would highly recommend this package and make sure you go on a night that the Louvre is open later so you can stay on your own after the guided tour and explore more!
