Meet your expert English-speaking guide and join your fellow travelers to start your walking tour of the artistic Montmartre district by the iconic Moulin Rouge cabaret theater.

See where Toulouse-Lautrec drew some of the most famous pictures of the nightlife of Paris. 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.

Maria was an incredible guide. She gave us insight to Paris and the best spots to eat. She shared great information about Montmatre. This is an uphill walking tour which highlights places such as restaurants and churches. I recommend a day tour so you can appreciate the architecture and leave plenary of time to walk back down in order to visit places that may have grabbed your interest before they close. And make sure to walk all the way around Sacred Heart. Enjoy!

We came late for the tour, due to traffic jam to the meeting point. Of course, this is our own responsibility, because the tour started on time. Luckily, the customer service staff was very helpful. He/She told us the route that the guide will pass. Luckily we met our guide, at the third meeting point, Café des Deux Moulins. From this point, we continue walking with the rest of the group and heard about explanation of the main attractions at Montmartre. We stopped by Wall of Love, and continue climbed up to the main attraction, Sacré-Cœur. Overall the tour was nice, although we love Montmartre area so much, it's so romantic. But the pace of the tour was quite fast for us (we always left behind), thus we cannot hear the guide explanation properly. Her English was superb, but maybe too many other participants made us less enjoyable, because sometimes we couldn't see the guide, or even just listened her from beyond. You should join this tour if you really love Montmartre.

An interesting excursion to get a first-hand impression of Montmartre. The climb up the hill was doable even for me, who is 74. Paula made sure we didn't get lost. Seems a little too expensive and it should be taken into account that you will have to find your own way from the top of the hill back to the subway. However bus #40 also goes from there.
