Peek in a bohemian heart

"Begin your journey through the charming streets of Montmartre, led by an expert local guide. This historic neighborhood was where great artists like Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Van Gogh lived, drank, danced, and created. Your local guide will take you to Picasso's residence and workshop as they narrate stories of his youth! But that's not all, wander through cobblestone alleys drunk on bohemian vibes as you discover the secrets of cabaret and the French Cancan dance. Visit Paris's last remaining vineyard and an artists' square where people still gather to paint, sell, and buy art. You can pose and commission a portrait too!

A little bit of everything and you'll leave this tour an expert on the old world charm of Paris."

Face-to-face with divine artistry

"Climb up to the iconic Sacré-Coeur Basilica, a stunning masterpiece of Romanesque-Byzantine architecture. Here, your guide will show you all the unique features of the Basilica as they take you around the Basilica and its gardens. After your tour ends, walk into the Basilica by yourself and soak in its beauty with no one to hurry you. Look at Christ showering his love on you from the basilica's ceiling, adorned with a mosaic as big as 3 volleyball courts!

You can choose from English or French-speaking guides, to tour the Montmartre quarters in the language of your comfort."
