What To Expect

Boasting vibrant creative energy and stellar hilltop views, Paris’ Montmartre district has long been a favorite stomping ground for the city’s artistic community. Meet up with your guide here in the afternoon, and explore the streets and sights that inspired some of the world’s greatest painters, including Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Vincent van Gogh and Henri Matisse. 

Walk to the sparkling white Basilica of Sacré Coeur, majestically built at the highest point in Paris. Step inside the Romano-Byzantine cathedral to admire one of the largest mosaics in the world, and take in sweeping panoramic views of the city from the front steps. 

Continue on to explore one of Montmartre’s lesser-known gems — the only remaining vineyard in Paris! Learn about the history of winemaking in the city and stop in at two of the oldest bistros in the city for a tasting of various French varietals. Snack on a savory charcuterie platter of cheeses and cured meats at one of the cafés where your guide shares information on regional wine and offers tasting tips. 

Your 3-hour tour concludes at Montmartre’s charming Place du Tertre square, where you can continue exploring this fascinating neighborhood on your own.

Disappointed
Letha_D, Sep 2019
Tour was cancelled due to the Paris transit strike. The tour operator did not want to spend the extra money on a taxi so they cancelled the tour. Just FYI.... taxis did not charge extra during the strike. Only Uber’s

Julie_B, May 2018
Tour guide never showed up and never contacted us to apologize or offer a reason. We suspect that because it was only my husband and myself they didn't think it was worthwhile for them. Very disappointing as it was our last day in Paris, we had made the 30 minute trip to the meeting site and it was an afternoon tour so we had no chance of getting on another tour.

Very good guide and since the other person didnt turn up there were only the two of us. We enjoyed the food wine and particularly the history as we walked Montmartre. Brilliant.

William G, Jun 2017
It was fine. The guide was a delightful young woman, who was knowledgeable and friendly. They could work better at communication, however. We were told to be at the meeting site 15 minutes before the beginning of the tour, and we were. There was no one else there connected to the tour. Finally, we learned that that was because we were the only two people on the tour, and the guide was late. No one told us despite having my phone number and my email. A telephone inquiry was not answered. It was also expensive

A must do!. Our guide Boris was exceptional and went into great detail explaining the history and changing cuture of Montmartre as well as well as sharing his knowledge of French wine. The tastings were outstanding. Thank you!

Derek B, Jan 2016
My wife and I did this tour on New Year's Day. Charlotte was our tour guide. She was very nice and knowledgeable of the area. It was just my wife and I that day so it was like walking around town with a local friend! The wine stops were nice. Charlotte explained the wines and cheeses as we sat and talked. Unfortunately, we did not get to tour the Basilica because they weren't letting people in when we got to it. We weren't sure why. Otherwise this was a nice way to get to see and learn about the Montmartre area through the experience of a local.

Regina H, May 2015
We really enjoyed this experience. Alexandra, our guide, was so knowledgeable, interesting and engaged. She took us on a lovely walk through Montmartre with stops at a few cafes for wine tasting at the first we also had a cheese plate and at the second some charcuterie. We learned a lot about the area, the people and about Paris in general. The pace of the tour was also perfect. This was a great way to start our Paris vacation!

This was a great way to spend an afternoon and learn about the history of the Montmartre Quarter of France. Our guide was delightful and made us all feel like friends. Great Tour.

Tom H, Apr 2015
Our tour guide was so interesting, giving us a really great insight into the history of Montmatre as well as the wine and food we tasted. She took us to parts of Montmarte we would never have know the history and intrigue of had we not been with her. She really made this tour special.

Phyllis C, Oct 2014
This tour never occurred. I was at destination an hour early, meeting point is easily identifiable. I waited more than the hour and finally called the number for the United States, they tried the tour operator but had no luck. I called the Paris number, no one answered. Fortunately, another walking tour was gathering which I was able to join on-site, although there was no stops for wine and cheese, which is why I booked this particular tour to begin with as I wanted to experience Montmartre a bit more than the tour I ended up with.

Jeffrey T, Oct 2014
Found it very hard to find starting point for this tour as the instructions on the book were not accurate. Would also have helped if the tour guide had some sort of recognisable uniform or sign that we could look for. There was only 4 people on the tour itself so we had plenty of time for questions and it was easy to get us around. It would have been good to have some time to ourselves on the tour to purchase souvenirs as we went rather than at the end having to double back.
Excellent guide and thoroughly...
Phillip W, May 2014
Excellent guide and thoroughly enjoyable experience. Exactly right pace. Wine and cheese came at opportune times. Plenty of time to see everything. Very knowledgeable guide.

John L, Apr 2014
Alexandra was tres magnifique!!!. She was knowledgeable, charming and fun. The area we visited held so many endearing little secrets that we would never have found without her. She learned of our love of the movie Amelie and she took us to many of the scenes where it was filmed. Fun wine and food on a perfect Paris spring day. Recommended without reservations and most highly!! Ask for Alexandra.

Jerry N, Dec 2013
The church itself was beautiful. It was a lot of walking up and down hills which I didn't like. Wine tasting was okay.
