I've been a guide and living in Montmartre for five years. My motley background in art and acting enriched me, to create this adventure; cultural, historical, surprising and fun.

I nourish a true passion for art history, storytelling, and love meeting people. My goal here,
is getting you to relive the 1900 period, to make you feel, understand and appreciate the artistic effervescence and the secrets of one of the most charming site of Paris.

Parisian experience, fun, friendly, authentic and spirited ! With french accent...

We, as a family, really enjoyed this tour and the guide. Fabien is an enthusiastic storyteller who knows everything about Montmartre, its past and present. Now we have a far better understanding and knowledge about this neighborhood. Thank you so much for sharing Fabien.

Amazing tour. Fabien was very knowledgeable not only about the artists of Montmartre but also the area itself. I’ve been to Montmartre many times but his tour gave me a new appreciation for the neighborhood. Highly recommended!

If you are an art lover, or are staying in Montmartre, do not miss this tour! Fabien is an amazing guide, and having just gone to the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, and some museums in Barcelona, this tied so many different threads together for us. It was absolutely magical time and such a value for the cost! We will be sending all of our friends visiting Paris to this tour with Fabien.

What a pleasure to meet Fabien. This man knows his subject. But he knows how to tell stories too. Make sure you've got you're walking shoes on though, for up and down the butte you will go. The tour goes so much deeper than the incidental 'here and there' of 'who and when'. How the Impressionists got their name, who led an artistic revolt and what happened next, the very particular 'rules' that informed a movement and who set them. Prepare to lose yourself in intrigue and wonder - this is fun! Highly recommended.

Balade dans Montmartre très enrichissante. Fabien est passionné, connaît parfaitement son sujet, est une mine d'informations sur l'histoire de Montmartre et la vie des peintres. Nous n'étions que 3, c'était formidable !
