Highly recommend taking this tour to bring the neighborhood of Montmartre to life. This can be a very touristy area, but our guide presented a little known side to the popular “Moulin Rouge” image through his interesting stories and anecdotes. Which is exactly what we wanted. He captured our attention despite the pouring rain and frigid temperatures. Great value!
