The Montmarte tour is not for someone who is unable to climb stairs - the views are stunning and the ability to navigate this interesting neighborhood takes a local to lead the way. The tour was informative and intimate. I recommend it. However, There were no bathroom breaks and there was no information after the tour to direct us to... More

I must say the first experience I had was much, much better. We took the Montmarte Tour this time and I wasn't as impressed like before. The guide tried his best to be funny and informative but I think the stops were not as interesting (like the mainstream wine store). I think I just had very high expectations given my... More

We took a tour of Notre Dame and the surroundings with guide Eric. He had many interesting facts about the the architectural facade of Notre Dame, as well as its history. He also had some very interesting history about its surroundings. Great recommendations on restaurants and where to buy the best macarons as well. Would highly recommend this!

I had a tour in Montmartre, Paris by Manuel. Because I am an artist, the tour of the area where a lot of famous and important artists to me were there, it was amazing! Manuel showed us a certain place and a photo of what it did look like, how it was painted, and how it changed. It brought a... More

Would definitely recommend this tour group for walking tours of paris. It is so worthwhile to learn about the history and culture of the places visited. Their walks only go for 1.5hrs which is a good amount of time meaning you can do many or just one. We tipped 10 euro each which i think would be the minimum appropiate... More

My friend and I started our Montmartre Impressionist Art Walking Tour with a big mistake. We were told to meet right in front of the Moulin Rouge, which we assumed was the found area just across a narrow part of the Blvd. Clichy where numerous tourists were gathered to meet their tour guides. When the meeting time passed, I emailed... More

My husband and I did the Marais and Montmarte Discover Walks tours last week. Both tour guides were fantastic - informative, engaging and fun! The price (free with a recommended tip) could not be beat. We did another tour while in Paris that cost a lot more money and did not give us much more. I also liked that there... More

I did walking tours in a few countries and a tours within Paris before and this one was sub-par. Maybe it was not what I was expecting as I wanted to know more about the history of Paris, the sculptures, and what to look for. The main thing I got from this tour was the restaurants to go to, printed... More

We travel a lot and are big fans of "tip only" guided walks. Discover Walks were right up there among the best. We did the Landmarks and the Notre Dame tours. Both were very enjoyable and our guides were friendly and funny. Highly recommended.

Wow! We learned so much on this walking tour. Our Paris born guide, Marie, gave us an insider's view of the Marais. She treated us like new neighbors who had just moved to her city. She wanted to show it off & make certain we knew where all the highlights were. Marie, Great tour yesterday! Thank you very much! You... More
