Explore Paris best neighborhood with a local guide
Montmartre Private Tour
With its cobblestone streets, stunning Sacré Coeur Basilica, artists, bistros ... Montmartre is full of charm! Perched on the top of a small hill in the 18th arrondissement, the most authentic Parisian district has lost none of its village atmosphere that appealed so much to the artists of the 19th and 20th centuries.
A real melting pot of art and inspiration for the cinema, Montmartre is very unique and picturesque. Most visitors say that it's the reason why they fall in love with Paris!
Like Picasso, Modigliani, Miro, Toulouse-Lautrec, Géricault, Renoir or Van Gogh, painters have made Montmartre their home, met up in cafes and busied themselves in the many artists’ studios on the hill.
What is included
A friendly tour guide who will show you the best part of this picturesque neighborhood during 2 hours.
Valuable private interaction to get the most out of your experience.
Marais Private Tour
This historic area is now one of the most visited districts of Paris, for its architectural heritage as well as its unique vibe. Home to aristocratic mansions (hôtel particulier), art galleries or trendy stores, it is today the most vibrant neighborhood in the city.
The Marais gathers an impressive number of architectural gems from the 17th and 18th centuries, some of which have been converted into museums such as the Hôtel de Sully. The beautiful square Place des Vosges dating from the Renaissance is a highlight of a stroll through the Marais streets. It used to be the former Royal Square and hosts today famous art galleries and gourmet spots.
The Jewish quarter is also located in the Marais and will charm you with the picturesque streets and hidden garden full of history.

Marie was absolutely wonderful. She was very flexible in helping me organize itineraries for several tours I booked. She was always very prepared and full of many suggestions and enthusiastic about showing me around Paris. Marie even helped me with practising some French. Thanks for making my stay in Paris wonderful!

Being new to Paris and to this type of tour guiding, Marie was very friendly and "real". My partner and I experienced and were shown Marie's recommendations such as: Bakery Moulin de la Vierge rue Sainte Dominique. We ate a delicious chouquette, thanks again. Place de la Bastille, Coulée Vert René Dumont (the green splash).

My mom, my sister and I saw Paris with Marie as our tour guide. We have no regrets whatsover. We had a wonderful time with Marie. She was friendly, easy-going, sociable and so accomodating. She communicated with us about what we wanted to do. She gave us recommendations. And she planned out our itineray. We walked the cobblestones of Montmartre and ate authentic French cuisine like true locals. She enlighted us with French history as we toured each monument. It was a day well spent. Marie is a very knowledgeable and fun tour guide. We highly recommend her.

I had a truly incredible time with Marie in Paris. She created several possible itineraries based on my interests. She was totally prepared, thougtful, and truly made the day special. The unique thing about this experience was that I was with a local who knew the city well and could plan a wonderful day but, also, it was like meeting a new friend. Marie's goal was making the day memorable for me. She provived plenty of options and I never felt like it was just a job for her. She truly seemed to enjoy the day as much as I did. I will absolutely use "The French Travel" again and look forward to booking another tour with Marie in the future !

I've never done a tour like this before but I am so glad we did it! Marie was pleasant and it was really nice to spend a few hours with a local to really get to know a part of Paris that we would
have never found on our own. It was really nice that we were able to customize our tour and Marie was so great. I would recommend a tour with Marie to anyone who visits Paris.
