Top sights in Paris
The Paris neighborhood of Montmartre is famous for its bohemian flair, and many of its cultural offerings shape the city. It's a great place to relax and take in some art - what are some places you shouldn't miss?
Paris' most famous basilica was completed in 1914 and shines like a beacon. After you've climbed its white steps, it will give you a breathtaking view across the city!
This collection of sculptures and paintings is the only permanent Dali exhibition in France. It's really popular though, so get your skip-the-line ticket!
Not just a movie, Moulin Rouge is a legendary place you can visit - why not book dinner for two with a raunchy show there?
Visit the Wall of Love in the Jehan Rictus garden in the world's most romantic city! Made of molten lava, it's covered with the phrase "I love you" in over 300 different languages.
The street life along this canal summarizes the Parisian lifestyle - leisurely strolls and afternoons spent sitting outside at cafés, sampling world-class food.
Unfortunately, Paris' status as a world-class tourist city means it's also rife with pickpockets. Keep valuables stashed away deep inside a bag - especially on the metro - and don't flash them around at night.
While nobody's expecting you to master French before you arrive, learning some basic words here and there will get you places and cause locals to look at you favorably!
If you're keen to dine at a certain restaurant, reserve in advance to avoid disappointment - and remember that the French tend to eat dinner a bit later than Americans, around 7:00PM.
You don't want to spend your vacation standing around, do you? If you have your sights set on one or two major museums, score yourself a skip-the-line ticket for priority entry.

What people are saying about Montmartre
We really enjoyed the tour as it led us to all the most important and most beautiful places in Montmartre. We surely would've found all of them in a tourist guidebook or on the internet, as none of them was much of a hidden gem. That's why we found the tour to be just a little bit too expensive. But it was so much fun to follow the storyline, and the interactive style with the clues and riddles made it easy to learn something new! We also enjoyed being able to play at our own pace, as we took several breaks to take photos or to sit in a lovely café. In the end we really didn't regret buying it! The day we made this tour in Montmartre ended up being our favorite day of our holiday in Paris.
Caroline, the manager at "Retro Tour" was very helpful and supported to set the ride to a sunny day - basis of 'joyride' on motorbike. Christophe was punctually waiting for us on Concorde at gate to Tuilleries garden. The motorbike was great, a 750 ccm beast, with comfy sidecar, suitable even for non-experienced people. Christophe asked, whether we prefer speedy ride, we choose soft version, it was impressing even so. The route is well elaborated, concentrating on known places and 40 minute is good enough. During the ride is difficult to give long explanations - Christophe was ready to do it - best to enjoy the views of Paris, the breeze, the speed!
My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable one-hour tour of the Montmartre area with Severine Cortines as our Expert Guide. She was informative, highly engaging, and very funny! We got introduced to the ancient history of Sacre Coeur and Montmartre, as well as getting entertaining glimpses and anecdotes about events, houses, and colorful persons from more recent history. Highly recommended!
All good except that the boarding point in notre dam is not that clearly indicated.getyourguide should provide more pointers on each of the boarding points, I don't think the current content was sufficient to find the notre dam boarding point. Also buses timing are not that great due to a lot of construction activity happening in Paris ( I took the bus in the last week of may 2019)
We booked two days and the river trip option (deluxe). The first day was rainy, with busy streets and no live commentary, relying on headphones. The second was sunny, with an excellent guide (Phil) and truly worth every penny. The river trip as everything in Paris very crowded but Ok. Decent mass tourism.
