Tour Description

Discover more about this tour

Wander through the postcard perfect district of Montmartre, home of the Impressionists and cabarets that marked the Belle Epoque period. This semi-private walking tour, with no more than 8 travelers, will explore a time when the City of Light sparkled more than ever. Your tour will pair you with one of our enthusiastic young guides who share their favorite stories and personalities that define the Montmartre neighborhood.

 

Climb the butte or hill of Montmartre, starting at its base where the Moulin Rouge’s windmill still spins slowly and where its girls still kick high each night. This small group tour winds up the hill and its cobbled streets. Discover the houses of artists like Van Gogh and Picasso who called Montmartre home. Let us introduce you to France’s disco queen Dalida and the artists who still sell their wares on the square.  At the top of the hill, you can enter the gleaming white basilica of Sacré Coeur before taking in breathtaking view of Paris from one of the city’s highest vantage points. Cinema buffs and fans of the film Amélie will feel extra giddy in this district, where much of the movie was filmed. You also have the option of taking an evening tour to catch a sunset over the city if you’re lucky (depending on the season).

Highlights Generally Include:

Moulin Rouge

Sacré Coeur Cathedral (with time allowed to explore inside as well)

Place Dalida

Moulin de la Galette

Vincent Van Gogh’s house

The Artists’ Square

Amélie Café

    I really enjoyed walking through the side streets of the Montmartre District and learning the history of the area. It was a great tour! I loved the small group. It was leisurely enough to stop and take pictures and enjoy the ambiance.

    We had a fun walking tour of Montmartre. The tour was supposed to be for a small group, but we got lucky and there were only 3 of us!! Our guide was great and she walked us through the area. I highly recommend the Babylon Tours group.

    MONTMARTRE: Small Group Guided Tour - Moulin Rouge to the Sacré-Coeur was a great walking tour. Our guide Carolena was so very nice and knowledgeable about the area. She had a few visual aides she showed as the tour was progressing regarding certain artists or certain buildings in the area. She showed many highlights like the restaurant from the movie 'Amelie' and talked about all the different artists that lived there and there were even some interesting legends about lesser known people in the neighborhood that made for great stories. Be prepared as the walk is hilly and steep in places and the streets are slightly uneven with stones but this is definitely worth it! I was extremely glad that the company did not cancel as there were only 2 of us on the tour. Highly recommend as the church and view at the top is unmistakably beautiful!

    We loved our walking tour with CHRISTINE of the awesome area of MontMatre (Paris) where the Sacre Coeur is located ON April 14, 2017. Christine was so friendly and so tuned in to what we would enjoy and she made is special for us. She gave us just enough historical background to make things interesting and meaningful. She took us to see windy streets & unusual architectural sights. We loved it!! I would rate the tour with CHRISTINE A 5 STAR! Joyce & Daryl Deering, USA

    Our guide Ljiljana was very knowledgeable, professional, and fun to be with. This tour was the highlight of our visit, and Babylon tours took very good care of us.

    We had Alex as our guide, he was amazing: knowledgable, enthusiastic, courteous, and super friendly. We learned so much and had fun doing it. Small group (4 people) made for an intimate experience, I'd book a tour with Babylon and Alex again in a heartbeat.

    Our guide Viotette did an amazing job explaining the history and context of the cathedral and surrounding areas of Paris. She was funny, articulate and also happens to have a PhD in art history, all of which combined for an enlightening and immersive tour. It is incredible how much information she packed into a few hours!

  • Janet J

    There was only two of us on tour so we had a great experience. Highly recommend tour.

    I booked the walking tour of Monmarte and Lily was our guide. She was extremely warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. She showed us all around the village while sharing a lot of facts about the history of the area. I took many tours while in Paris and I feel like this was the most informative one. Due to it being the low season, there were only 5 people on the tour! It worked out well because we moved around quickly and could hear everything easily.

    Took a walking tour with Melissa to Monmartre up to Sacre Coeur. She was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly. By luck, the tour group consisted of only me and my wife. Melissa took her time providing detailed explanations, and answering all of our questions. The walk to Sacre Coeur through Monmartre was a little hilly, but a comfortable walk. Definitely recommend.

  • ELMER B
