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 highly recommend everyone that visits Paris for the first time to book this tour, the sightseeing with the old 2 cylinder Citroen car was just AMAZING! Ask for James, he went above and beyond to make sure he explains everything that is cool in Paris for 2 hours, which is impossible:) He stoped for the perfect pictures, couldn’t been happier! Thanks James!
