Tour description

Visit Montmartre, the village has everything that Paris stands for: history, art, and love.

On this tour, we aim to make each tour an intimate, authentic Parisian experience. 

Our average group size is 10 - 15 guests, and we try to keep a max of 22 guests/guide. 

Also, our tours are all designed and run by local Parisians. No expat to run your tour! We give you the tourist must-sees and also the Paris of the Parisians. 


Only this tour will show you all. And tell you all.

We’ll show you the landmarks
: the church of Sacré Coeur, artists’ corner, Paris’ last vineyards, and so on. 

We’ll tell you the stories: what the Cabaret of the assassins is about. How Montmartre became the birthplace of Impressionism - and Van Gogh - and Picasso. And even why so many locals actually hate their church of Sacré Coeur.

We'll take you where other groups don't go.
 So many tourists in Montmartre! So of course we'll hit the must-sees. But we will also take you off-the-tourist-path every chance we get. And that's a promise. 

Our route covers the landmarks of Montmartre: 

  • The best views over Paris
  • The windmills of Montmartre and "the scrub"
  • cobblestones, picturesque streets, and a farmhouse even
  • the vineyards that the locals are so proud of
  • The birthplace of the greatest art – Impressionism. Cubism. Edith Piaf 
  • and the church of Sacré coeur - but from a better viewing point


We don't want you to just know Montmartre. We want you to love it. 

We walk rain or shine, and your guide wears a pink vest that you cannot miss.
