The wine, cheese, and pastry tour was great for the items of food we got to taste, and for the experience with our group, and walking around Montmarte. The guide did a good job talking about the food, but he didn't have a very enthusiastic personality and we didn't receive a lot of information about Montmarte - it was very food-centric. We enjoyed the experience, but hoped to get a little more historic information out of the tour along with sampling the foods from the various locations.

The guide started the tour with a brief explanation of the area ... things I would not know before. Throughout the route the guide explained to us all sorts of anecdotes about the place. And of course with every explanation we had something delicious to eat Just to remind us it's a Culinary tour. Undoubtedly a large part of the tour was the guide's knowledge on every corner we stopped at to eat something delicious.

An excellent tour of Montmartre- Francois, the tour guide certainly knows his stuff and delivered with humour and passion. The tour included a mix of the history of the area as well information of the famous artists who made their name whilst living in the locality. Listed as two hours the tour was closer to three by the time we finished - excellent - well worth the time and money.

This was probably our favorite activity in Paris! Alain was an absolute pleasure to work with and took better photos than our wedding photographer. We would highly recommend anyone that wants great photos of Paris.

Fun way to experience Montmart - dont buy multiple tickets. A single ticket for a group is fine.
