I am a curious soul who’s lived in the city of lights for over a decade now. I studied acting, with a focus on improvisational theatre, creative writing, and I'm also a linguist. I am addicted to Paris, in love with its history, and telling it is one of the things I love the most. Storytelling by nature, being a tour guide has been the medium I’ve found to bring my skills with my greatest passions together. These are art, comedy, people, history, languages, travel, and communication. I can't wait to meet you and take you on this journey!

Tour description

Join me on this free walking tour around the beautiful Montmartre. On this 2h 45 min visit, we’ll do a deep dive into the most charming & picturesque neighbourhood in the entire city. And you will understand why it is considered by many to be 'the soul of Paris'. As it is the best preserver of the idea of what one imagines Paris to be.

Our tour begins right outside of the Starbucks in front of the Moulin Rouge (our first stop). Afterwards, we’ll begin to walk up hill in a spiral-like fashion. Slowly working our way to the top until the Sacré-Coeur. That will b our finishing point, and it’s the best place to enjoy the view of Paris as well as the sunset.
We’ll cover all of the most iconic landmarks, plus the other hidden gems which are off the beaten path, and outside of the tourist’s radar.

We’ll talk history, arts, life in Montmartre, street-artists, plus many fun facts and interesting anecdotes! All of which combined will deepen your understanding and appreciation of this magical and unique place.

What we’ll see:
1) Moulin Rouge
2) Restaurant from the Amélie movie
3) Vicent Van Gogh’s House
4) Moulin de la Galette
5, 6, & 7) Top 3 Most Beautiful Streets of  Montmartre
8) Dalida Square 
9) Le Clos Montmartre (Paris’ only vineyard)
10) Le Lapin Agile
11) Sacré Coeur

As a happy resident of Montmartre for many years, I know the neighbourhood like the palm of my hand, and so do my other collaborators. Therefore, we'll give you the best recommendations about where to eat, where to drink, and where to have a fun night out. Avoiding tourist traps, and discovering the true local spots that will make the experience that much more memorable! So come join us! Can't wait to having you on our tour!

Sebastian es un excelente profesional y siempre muy cordial con el grupo, pero debo reconocer que no quede satisfecho con el tour. Esperaba un tour que pudiera hacerme entender la importancia de Montmartre y su diferencia a nivel histórico arquitectonico con el resto de París y lo que obtuve fue paradas por sitios de "cultura" actual (thrash) como Amelie, Dalida y sobretodo Emily in Paris. El guía muy bueno, el contenido de la información es bastante mala.
