Neighbourhood Tour

Tour

Little has changed in Montmartre since the time Van Gogh set up his easel and painted this Hill of Dreams. Fortunately for us, this little village has evolved for our enjoyment: the houses of pleasures are now fabulous pastry and chocolate shops, and the wine produced locally is undrinkable so we can enjoy great Burgundy’s and Champagne with a great view. 

On your tour you will see windmills, hear about the revolutions at the Sacre Cœur, samples the best local bakeries, and get a feel of what it’s like to be a local Montmartrois.

Price per private group of 1 to 4:

Since the middle of the 19th century the "Butte Montmartre" has been a place for walking and enjoyment. On the slopes were taverns, eating-houses and dance halls where workers and the middle-class met on Sunday afternoons to celebrate and relax. This effervescent atmosphere in addition to the low cost of rents at that time attracted all the artists and intellectuals like Picasso, Modigliani, Utrillo and Apollinaire.

"Another leisure format which owed something to the café-concert and something to the literary café evolved in the 1880's, when the painter Rodolphe Salis established a night club in his gallery on the Boulevard de Rochechouart. It attracted a wide range of artists as well as struggling poets and musicians. The Chat Noir management published a literary journal of the same name, and its evening floor shows allowed the performance of its contents, alongside musical turns and light sketches. Mirliton performances comprised a mixed menu of turns, heavy on satire and studied silliness and with a sentimental attachment to le Vieux Paris spiced with political attacks on urban developers and corrupt politicians. Such locations allowed the mixing of the literary and artistic avant-gardes. The bourgeoisie liked to slum it in such arty venues, for which Montmartre acquired a reputation."

"The tours were wonderful.  Mik was fantastic, knowledgeable and took very good care of us. Christine was great as well.  We enjoyed her insights and her knowledge of Paris and it was all just fantastic.  We wish we had planned to stay in Paris longer, I guess we will just have to go back! It was all great!! Thanks again for working with me to arrange the tours."    John Y
