Full day tour to explore Montmartre, the Marais and the Left Bank

2 millions people live in Paris! This tour will introduce you to their iconic neighbourhoods. We'll explore Montmartre, in the northern part of the city, with its village ambience and its numerous picturesque restaurants and food stores. Closer to the river Seine, on the Right Bank, we'll stroll the Marais, best-preserved historic district with art galleries and trendy fashion stores. Finally, I'll share with you the secrets of the Left Bank, my neighbourhood since the past 25 years, with the Latin Quarter, Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the most popular Parisian park: the Luxembourg garden!

Last but not least, on our way, we will of course enjoy gourmet breaks in local side-walk cafés and taste the best baguettes, chocolates and pastries in town!

This tour can be done every day. However, I would not recommend doing it on Monday as many places are closed on that day.


The itinerary could include the major landmarks, such as:
- The Sacré-Coeur Basilica and its breathtaking viewpoint
- Place du Tertre
- The Moulin Rouge
- The very lively market street rue des Abbesses
- Place des Vosges
- Hotel de Sully
- Hotel de Soubise and the gardens
- Jewish district with the rue des Rosiers
- Church Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis
- The Sorbonne University (exteriors)
- Saint-Germain-des-Prés
- Saint Sulpice church
- The Luxembourg gardens

and so much more, depending on your own interests, but it will also include my favourite lesser-known sights!

This tour can be done every day. However, I would not recommend doing it on Monday as many places are closed on that day.

A Recent Review of this tour

Ann was amazing. She was energetic and very informative and continued to check in to make sure we were feeling good and enjoying our tour. My friend was supposed to come on this trip but in the end could not make it. Ann check in with me and my sister who came as a stand in, to make sure the agenda was still to our liking. Would definitely use her again and give her highest ranking.
