We really enjoyed our tour through Montmartre. Mitch was an excellent guide. He gave us lots of interesting information and we learnt a lot about the area. This is the part of Paris we always stay in because of its vibrancy and we realised that there were lots of things we didn't know. It was a nice gentle walk to the top with lots of stops along the way. I would highly recommend both the tour and Mitch who living in the area really knows his subject and was excellent at answering all our questions as we went along.

This was a fantastic tour of Montmartre. Mich our tour guide was amazing. He made the whole tour so interesting. We had two 16 year old boys with us and even they enjoyed Mich’s commentary. Montmartre is such a beautiful town and learning it’s history was so enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour and especially Mich!

Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and motivated. She told many historical incidents from artists and various well-known people and how they related to the various cafes and houses. The most exciting thing for us was her spiritual, theological demonstration of the symbols and images in the Sacre Coeur.

Great tour. Even in the cold, walking around Montmarte in a small group, being led so passionately by Emmanuel was good fun! Learnt a lot about the place, and was exceptionally thankful for the cafe / bar recommendations :)

Our guide was simply amazing! He took us to all the main attraction spots and was obviously knowledgeable about Montmartre’s history. I truly enjoyed the tour and would gladly recommend it.
