Cultural Visit
2 hours
Private Certified Guide

DESCRIPTION

Meet your private, experienced guide and let them take you and your family through the charming, narrow cobblestone streets of Montmartre. More than a district, the area of Montmartre feels more like a village perched on top of a hill in the north of Paris. Its small shops, artistic ambiance and vineyard make it one of the most charming areas of the French capital.
During this 2-hour walking tour, follow your guide as they take you to the main highlights but also some interesting off-the-beaten-path curiosities that will surely please you and your family. From historical cabarets, to ateliers where very famous painters lived and worked (the Montmartre Museum), all the way to the Sacré Coeur Basilica and the “painter’s square” (Place du Tertre), Montmartre will have no more secrets.
Our kid-friendly guide will keep the children engaged and entertained, and they will each receive a game to make this experience extra special.

This tour is available in the following languages : English, French, Spanish, German, Chinese, Portuguese and Russian

FAQ's
Is this tour private?
Yes, it is. No one else will be joining your private tour, and you will have your own private guide throughout the visit. However, there will be other people visiting the Montmartre Museum at the same time.
Is there a lot of walking during the tour?
Because our tours are designed for families with children, we make sure the distances are not too long. Plus, it all goes downhill. Moreover, there are bakeries and ice-cream stores along the way, so you’ll be able to treat your children to something sweet during the tour if you want. That will keep them going!
Are the parents staying with the children or separated?
We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
We recommend this walking tour for kids aged 6 or older, because they must know how to read and write in order to enjoy the fun-filled game booklet. Younger kids can join and they will enjoy it, but they won’t be able to play the game, unless a parent or older sibling helps.
Will we have to wait in line?
Visiting the inside of the Sacré Coeur Basilica is not possible due to the long lines. But if the line is very short, then you’ll be able to get a quick peek inside. There are very short lines at the Montmartre Museum for security checks, which cannot be avoided.
Can I bring a stroller or a wheelchair?
Technically, it is possible to bring a stroller or wheelchair, but we would not recommend it because of the uneven cobblestone streets, the very narrow sidewalks and because of the topography of Montmartre (on a hill).
What happens if it rains?
The tour will take place, even if it rains. Just make sure you bring an umbrella or a rain jacket.
Will my teenage kids like the tour?
Sure they will. They might not want to have the game booklet, but since it is a private tour, our professional guide will adapt their speech to keep your teenagers engaged and entertained throughout the tour.
