Begin your relaxing journey through the winding streets to arrive at Cafe des 2 Moulins, featured in the popular movie Amelie. Continue uphill and walk the streets where Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso and other artists lived and worked. Stroll along the Rue Abbesses and learn its history dating back to ancient times.

Along the way you will pass the only remaining vineyard in Paris, and the last 2 windmills still standing.

Best part of the trip!

Eric was our guide, and he was fantastic! I had planned on going to the Louvre Museum after going to the Palace of Versailles the previous day, but thought twice about going to another building packed with tourists. I made a choice to go on a walking tour of Montmartre with our guide Eric, and it turned out to be a very wise choice. Such a beautiful place with a terrific guide and group, and there was no huddling around in rooms vying for the best spot to snap a quick photo; it was nice, airy, and at the end a terrific view. You will NOT be disappointed. This tour and seeing the Eiffel tower at night were the highlights of my three day trip to Paris. Also, get the Paris city card that has bus, tram, and train passage attached for a much easier time getting around the city. I'll be back!

Eric was our guide and saying he was top notch and Amazing still does not do it justice. Eric has an incredible way of pulling you into the story and before you know it his passion for what he is sharing is contagious He is extremely knowledgeable about a vast variety of French subjects which made the 2 hours fly by and left us all wanting more. Many of us on the tour were “foodies” and all while walking to the next stop he shared great places to visit while in Paris. With Eric as your guide you will leave feeling guilty as you get so much more than you paid for. Started the tour with Eric as our guide left the tour with him as a friend in Paris. The Ammons

Fabulous!

Eric was amazing. He went through interesting facts about the area we would’ve never known unless we had a guide . I loved that he was a local and also told about the best ice cream shoppe and Boulangerie! It was a pleasure really and I got his email and when I come back to Paris I am going to reach out to him for a private food tour. Make sure if you book a tour in Paris... request Eric!! So interesting and bright!
