Montmartre Free Walking Tour: From Moulin Rouge to Sacré Coeur

We are Discover Walks: Europe's #1 for custom and private tours. When you pick a tour, you ask yourself: does it rate high? But you can also ask: will they both show me the must-see landmarks and “take me backstage” for a taste of the real city? Do they keep their groups small, with good facetime with the guide? Will my guide be not some expat, but a true local with a passion for her/his hometown? A guide able to give me more than just facts, dates and figures? In other words, will I be just another tourist? Or will they “lift the curtain” for me? Discover Walks creates tours that include both the tourist must-sees and locals’ hidden gems. We select guides who are true locals with great personalities. We train them to be engaging and personable and to tell a story well. We keep our groups small, by adding an extra guide when necessary. Welcome on our tours!

Tour description

Welcome to the bohemian, romantic village of Montmartre!
We will hit the landmarks that every tourist wants to see, like Moulin Rouge or Sacré Coeur. But we will also tour the non-touristy section of Montmartre, the area most tourists don't see, such as the cobblestone allleys, the vineyard and so on. That's because your guide is both a professional guide and a local of Montmartre. In English. El tour es en inglés.
Landmarks that we will see: 

  • Moulin Rouge cabaret
  • Van Gogh's windmill
  • The Sacré Coeur Cathedral
  • Artists' square
  • Picasso's workshop, the spot where Impressionist Art was born. 

Hidden gems that we will also cover: 

  • The vineyard
  • The Cabaret of the Assassins
  • Unconventional views over Paris
  • The Man Who Walks Through Walls

I would definitely recommend this tour.. took us up and down all the cute little side streets on Montmatre with lots of hidden gems. Clem was really friendly and fun. She had lots of enthusiasm throughout the tour which made it more interesting to learn about Montmatre.

This tour was great! You could see her passion from the way she talked about this area and Paris, overall. I have been to Paris a few times but this was such a treat to see a neighborhood that has so much culture to it that felt like it was off the beaten track. If you’re an art lover, you’ll really enjoy all of the points of interest, as you will see places important to Pablo Picasso and Vincent Van Gough. We had a smaller group (5 of us, guide included) so we were able to move around quickly and ask many questions. Even in a larger group, the information given would have been awesome without the additional questions. 10/10 recommend! I’ll definitely be checking out one of their other tours when I return!
