Traveller Tips

The walking tour is "active" but not overly strenuous as Eric was careful to slow down appropriately to chat with us and let us in on the local attractions and history.

Vive le Republique!
harry_h, Mar 2023
Our guide was from Spain but had a clear love for the Republic of Montmartre. She was passionate and knowledgeable and also curious when we asked questions. I got the feeling she was going to learn more as soon as the tour ended.
Great Experience
Steven_T, Mar 2023
Joanna was so gracious, informative and fun. Great tour. We also walked by her wonderful watercolors!
Meghan_T, Mar 2023
Hafid was awesome, we learned a lot, pace was good (not too fast with all the uphill climbing but not too slow to be frustrating!). Would definitely recommend. Great way to see all the hidden gems in this quaint neighborhood
Very nice experience for a first time visitor
Andrew_R, Mar 2023
Montmartre is a beautiful neighborhood in Paris to visit. I can see why it is such a desirable place to live, film, and visit. I found myself deviating from the group a few times just to snap pictures of a beautiful restaurant terrace or lovely narrow street. Our guide Amira was great! She was lighthearted and fun, she was very loose and was cracking jokes with us. I am doing a Versaille tour in the coming days, and I hope she is my guide for it. This tour is certainly not for people with mobility issues, you are doing the equivalent of climbing to the second level of the Eiffel Tower. Once you get closer to Sacre Coeur it is very crowded, so watch out for pickpockets and scammers.
Wander through Monmatre
Helen_P, Mar 2023
Informative and we got to see things we would have missed if we’d been alone. Our guide was knowledgeable and very personable.
Fun For Everyone!
Clare_M, Mar 2023
Heidi is fab! She’s so knowledgeable & funny & engaging. I’ve been to Paris loads of times but wanted to learn something about the streets I often walk down. This tour was great!
ExperienceFirst Montmarte Tour and Hedi our Guide was Excellent!
Lisa_S, Feb 2023
ExperienceFirst did a great job!! They had a flag at the departure point that was easy to find and people were there to help. Hedi our tour guide was wonderful, very informative, and funny, and she was able to keep track of the group and spoke loud enough so the whole group could hear.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Heidi is really knowledgeable and always gives a great tour. Thanks for your 5 stars and for choosing ExperienceFirst! We hope to have you back again.
Overall a good tour
Teresa_B, Feb 2023
Educational walking tour. Easy to walk the hills and the guide was easy to understand. I do think the description of the tour was misleading as it said food and drinks included and there was none. Also know that the bathroom that is recommended requires 2 euros so make sure you have some change.
Great tour through wonderful Montmartre
David_D, Feb 2023
Great tour with our guide Heidi! She is very nice , funny and knowledgeable about wonderful Montmartre! Through the picturesque sceneries of this district, she took us to an historic journey, full of information and anecdotes. This is an highly recommended tour!

Celeste_T, Jan 2023
Our tour guide Remi was fun and knew so much about Montmartre. We walked all around and he explained architecture, the historical significance and made recommendations on where to go for later. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour!

Great way to get introduced to Montmartre
Jeanne_M, Jan 2023
Sara was a great tour guide. She had so many interesting facts for us from Moulin Rouge up to Sacre Cour. Information was clear on where to meet and the pace was comfortable. Sara made a point of chatting with each of us individually during the tour. We had a really nice time. She even sent us some wonderful ideas of restaurants she enjoys. Lots of facts on the many artists and writers as we went zig zagging up from Moulin Rouge to Sacre Cour.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you so much for your glowing review of the tour and our guide Sara. We're happy to hear this was a memorable tour for you, and that you were pleased with Sara's recommendations. These types of reviews are why we love doing what we do! We'll make sure to share this with Sara.
Great Monmartre tour with Sophie as our guide.
Frank_B, Jan 2023
Sophie was our guide and did an excellent job! She was very knowledgeable and charismatically entertaining. I enjoyed hearing about all the different aspects of the people and places of monmartre. Would be great to get a skip the line ticket into sacre coeur with this tour. Even so, I would highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Merci beaucoup! Sophie is indeed excellent and one of the bests. Thank you for the 5 stars, we're happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and had a great time getting to know one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Paris.
Brillant guide!

Excellent and very well...
Reinaldo_R, Jan 2023
Excellent and very well prepared guide. She knows the area and had great recommendations for our group.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you so much! We're happy you took a tour with us. We hope to have you back again in Paris soon.
Not the best experience!
Robert_M, Dec 2022
An overwhelmingly large group for an unbelievably soft-spoken tour guide. We’re traveling very busy streets with nearly 25 people (normal group size according to the tour company) and she was INAUDIBLE. I did contact the tour guide and they gave me 50% refund. Other companies (Memories, for example) have individual headsets with the tour guide, having a small microphone. I would encourage this company to do the same as it is laughable to expect to be heard. The second stop, she gave us was fairly subjective as well. She took us to the best bakery in Montmartre-but it was closed. I guess we’ll never know… After that, I pulled out the Rick Steves guide and just left the group and walked on my own. I’d encourage you to do the same.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for the feedback. The overwhelming number of guests we see review us highly for the value our guides bring to the experience. I am not happy to hear this is not your experience. We will speak with your guide to ensure they're providing a great experience to everyone.I hope we hear from you soon and wish you safe travels! Nihad.
Excellent tour

Sara the tour guide was animated to share all the details about Montmartre location. She is an asset to your establishment.

Taneka_H, Dec 2022
My tour guide used funny and memorable stories to help make the tour enjoyable and fun as well as ensuring that those certain facts or stories will remain in our brains over time and the places or things we saw along with them.

Amazing guided walking tour of Montmartre
Rudra_G, Dec 2022
Overall walking trip was a lot of fun, and super great. The tour guide was great, as she gave an amazing history for this place along a hill called Montmartre, and it was great, everything we saw along the way and how it evolved to what it is today!
Response from Host, Dec 2022

Monika and Montmartre
Chad_P, Nov 2022
Monika was wonderful! Very knowledgeable. Montmartre is a beautiful area to stroll, shop, eat and take in the scene. Even better when you have an engaging guide.

walking tour of Montmarte
Theresa_G, Nov 2022
Our guide was great! she made the walk fun informative and so interesting . We walked on beautiful side streets in Montmarte, which we would have never known and we made our way to the top of Sacer Cour without going up the hugh amount of steps in front, what a surprise!. I would highly recommend this tour and out guide was wonderful I believe her name was Paulina
