Doina was a great and knowledgeable guide. It was very interesting to understand the Montmartre neighborhood better than just walk to Sacre Coueur and see the church. The croissants and baguette of one of the best boulangeries in Paris were a highlight, as were the street art sightings and information about the Lapin Agiles and the artists who painted and lived in the area!

Nice walk through Montmartre

The tour was very well organized - the meeting point was easy to find and everything was on time. Rafael's English and attitude were absolutely perfect. We had a nice walk around Montmartre. Personally, however, I missed some stories and backgrounds for the things we saw - for me it was a guided walking tour of Montmartre with relatively little explanation. But otherwise it is a very nice way to experience Montmartre!
