I am a filmmaker and artist based in Paris, and have been working as a tour guide since 2020. I was drawn to France and Paris for its rich cultural history, particularly in the domains of art, literature, and cinema. I came here in 2015 for a two-year post-masters in a prestigious art school in the north of France and have since completed another master's in the History and Philosophy of Art. As well as a passion for art I'm also fascinated by the rich and diverse history of the city and love to share all the unusual and surprising historical anecdotes that I've picked up to along the way.

Tour description

Welcome the mythic world Montmartre, an eclectic and historically legendary neighbourhood of Paris, a place that has always been a buzzing hive of creative activity and the dwelling place of some of the most influential artists of all time.

Over the years Montmatre has been a beacon to artists of every creed, but it also become famed for its nightlife, its cafes serving absinthe, its red light district, its 'bals' and cabaret halls, a place where 'anything goes', a place pushing the boundaries in all directions. 

We will see the magnificent Sacré Coeur, and wander through the quaint streets passed:

  • The Cabaret Patachou
  • Through Place de Tertre
  • Passing an old vineyard
  • The bust of Dilada
  • The 'Passe-Muraille'
  • La Moulin de la Galette
  • The Moulin Rouge
  • Le Chat Noir
  • Passed the dwelling places, of Picasso, Modigliani, Georges Braque, Suzanne Valadon, Auguste Renoir, Vincent van Gough, and many, many more. 

Book a tour with me and soak up the rich artistic atmosphere and follow in the footsteps of the legends of Montmatre. You will be beguiled by the strange fascinating anecdotes from Montmatre history.

Eine perfekte Tour. Obwohl die anderen Teilnehmer kurzfristig abgesagt hatten, hat Ewan trotzdem die Tour nur für uns zwei durchgeführt. Er ist ganz individuell auf unsere Anfragen eingegangen, hat viele über die Region erzählt und auch bei Nachfragen viel Wissen gehabt. Wir waren ganz begeistert und können die Tour mit ihm wärmstens empfehlen.

Ewan made the experience very unique, with lots of hidden gems and laughs inbetween. The tour was beautifully paced and no question was a silly question. Wish every tour was as fun!
