We did the tour with Ellie on 28th December. We started off with a cake (in lieu of the advertised croissant because the bakery was closed for the holidays) which in my opinion is a great way to start. We started next to the map at Blanche Metro station so that Ellie could explain where Montmartre is situated and how it came to be part of the city of Paris. Ellie is very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the area, its famous inhabitants and she also pointed out good places to eat and to explore further (we went back the following day to have lunch at La Mascotte on Rue des Abbesses which was a great recommendation). All in all we would definitely recommend this tour to those who want to learn more about Montmartre than you would get from your typical tourist guidebook. Thank you

We really enjoyed our tour. We tasted some amazing food as well as learning about the Montematre area and Paris more generally. We tasted a wide variety of pastries and chocolate as well as some cheese and wine. The opportunity to sit down and enjoy the cheese, wine and charcuterie gave us a good chance to talk to others on the tour. The tour lasted just over three hours which people should factor into their planning.

It was awesome! I recommend! Our guide was super nice and even if I came from the country I learned a lot! On the bad side, which isn't about the tour at all: some other tourists (from the states) were a little rude and weren't eating the plates given so i don't really the point in coming if you're not willing to try stuff out... in a FOOD TOUR? Anyways i recommend a lot! :D

Exceptional tour! In spite of the rain this was the best tour we took on our recent trip to Paris. Knowledgeable local tour guide with excellent English took us to 5 shops we would never have found on our own. Felt like a local friend taking us to his favorite places with a bit of history mixed in. Our teenagers loved it too!

Awesome tour! Our guide was engaging, informative, and made the tour fun. The food samples were delicious and the perfect portion. Also, the area is charming and a nice change of pace from the busier parts of Paris. Highly recommend!
