What's in our tour?
With this Montmartre Night Walking Tour, see Moulin Rouge and Sacré Coeur at their best – without the big, day-time crowds. Welcome to the romantic Montmartre most tourists don’t get to see.
Our guide is a true born-and-raised Parisian who knows the best photo spots, the back stories, and the quiet vantage points, for the famous landmarks – Moulin Rouge, the homes of Van Gogh and Picasso, the church of the Sacred Heart etc.
Our tour also includes Montmartre’s picturesque hidden gems – e.g. the “clos Montmartre” vineyards, the pink house, Dalida’s breasts (that’s right!), and the cabaret of the assassins.
With this tour, “overtourism” in Montmartre will not be a problem for you. The tour is in English, and we keep our groups small and intimate.
Your guide will meet you outside metro station Blanche, and wearing our distinctive pink vest.
Our first stop is also our first photo opp: the entrance to Moulin Rouge – possibly the world’s most famous cabaret? You will observe Montmartre get ready for night life.
This compact tour is littered with highlights and photo opps, such as the café of Amélie (Montmartre’s top romantic comedy), Picasso’s art studio, Renoir’s favorite wind mill, cool-looking cobblestone back streets, and sweeping vistas over Paris.
Your guide provides context, takes you to easy-to-miss top spots, explains who lives here today, helps with photos, and includes gems that stand away from the tourist path.
We end the tour at Sacré Coeur’s award-winning photo spot. The building is immaculate white. And the tourist crowds seem to have vanished.
Please note that in order to see more, we do not spend time going inside buildings.
