Great guide
Kathryn_W, Mar 2023
Mark was a great guide and clearly passionate and knowledgeable of the area we toured. Highly recommend.
Wonderful Tour in Montmartre.
Andrea_B, Jan 2023
Marc was spectacular. Gave us a wonderful, informative tour! Such a great experience. Montmartre was one of our favorite parts of Paris.
Beautiful way to explore Montmartre Paris
Arthur_D, Dec 2022
This is the first time we have done a guided walking tour. I wouldn’t have done one previously thinking it’s a waste of money and I can find my way round on my own. Having spent the time with our guide Rene, I have a different point of view. Interesting facts and history about the area and some of the places we visited. Relaxed, insightful way to learn about the Montmartre district.
An enchanting evening tour with an amazing guide
Robyn_S, Dec 2022
My daughter and I had an enchanting time exploring and learning about the Montmartre District. Tamari Aznarashvilli was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, history and architecture. She directed us to the most wonderful macaron shop and educated us on Parisian food and history as well. Tamari made amazing recommendations during our tour and then took the time to follow our tour up with a personalized email which included a list of places to visit and eat in Paris. This tour was our favorite part of our vacation. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

Best tour we had

We loved all of the personal tips Mich had for us, like where to eat and where to get a drink and his favorite souvenir shop. He was so passionate about the culture and history. Our adult kids loved the tour and it was our favorite one.
Fun and interesting

Memorable Moments in Montmartre
Michelle_L, Aug 2022
François was our guide through this historic neighborhood. He was terrific - informative, engaging, personable, and flexible. We got caught in a 2 hour downpour that started about 30 minutes into our tour. François provided us with shelter and umbrellas, and he was so engaging that we kept on and enjoyed every minute. The good news is Montmartre and Sacre Coeur were uncrowded because of the rain. The rain cleared as we were leaving the basilica, so we got to see the incredible view of Paris as the sun returned. Big thanks to François for turning a soggy moment into a great memory!
Very long
Margot_V, Aug 2022
Francois was very nice - definitely was a bit over -theatrical … and we spent way too much time talking real estate and looking at newer properties instead of more history. And never even got inside the church! 🥲.
Great trip with Hugo
Monica_E, Jun 2022
Hugo was an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable but also entertaining! The area is beautiful and historic. Highly recommend this tour but specifically with Hugo!

Well worth a trip to Monmartre!
Jessica_D, Mar 2022
We had the best time in Monmarte with Tina. She knew everything about Montmartre as she lives there, was very well-spoken, her English is perfect and her knowledge about the history and stories was incredible. We had our two young teenage daughters with us and they adored her! Highly recommend.
Highly Recommend!
Jack_S, Feb 2022
This was the first of two tours we took though Babylon Tours. I highly recommend the tours provided by Babylon, as they have great tour options, excellent tour guides, and very detailed and clear instructions to make sure you have everything you need for the tour. We had the pleasure of touring with Lili. This was our first tour during our trip to Paris, and Lili made it an extremely enjoyable and memorable experience. Thank you Lili!
Amazing tour! Thank you Nancy!
Jennifer_V, Jan 2022
This was an absolutely incredible tour and Nancy was the perfect guide! Her warmth and enthusiasm was contagious and she is so incredibly knowledgeable about the history and stories of this beautiful area of Paris. She is a gifted storyteller and helped us feel immersed in the Montmartre culture. We couldn’t recommend this tour more highly! Thank you, Nancy, for the unforgettable experience! (And for singing Les Miserable together!)
Worth every second
Grace_S, Sep 2021
It was wonderful! I cannot speak for my friend, but I enjoyed every minute. Ivana, our tour guide, was at the meeting place early. She is very knowledgeable & answered all the questions asked.
