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!
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.

This wasn't a tour, it was a performance! Our guide was wonderful, he really brought to life Montmartre for us via his engaging storytelling, his sharp sense of history, and his humor. We loved it!
If you want to discover the real history behind the neighborhood of Montparnasse and not the touristy junk, go on this tour!!
Francoise was extremely energising and kept a large group engaged and energised (to the point we were ready to carry out a rebellion for a just cause !!) he was very informative with his favourite restaurants, bakeries, bars. His love of the Montmartre area was palpable. And we are a lot more educated on art from Montmartre. Thank you Francois!
