It was super nice and we have gained a lot of knowledge about Montmatre, it was a wonderful tour. Rène was an excellent guide who took us into his enthusiasm about Montmatre. I was in Paris with my in-laws and had planned this tour as a surprise and it was a great success. My in-laws were really impressed by Rène. Rène took the time he didn't look at his watch, he just wanted to give us a very nice and pleasant tour. The tour lasted longer, but we were never bored. We were impressed by what he showed us and how he told us about Montmatre. Highly recommended, Rène was a fantastic guide. TOP!
We really enjoyed this guided tour. Our guide was SO nice and helpful and really made an effort to give us an experience beyond what you could expect! Thank you so much.
Seen nice parts of the neighborhood. History covers the area and number of interesting properties viewed. Nice walk to get to know this.
