Reviews of the Tours (some are translated from French)
I have lived in Paris for almost twenty years and had visited Montmartre numerous times but I still learned a lot from Robert. I appreciated his endless knowledge, his passion for the neighbourhood and the artists who lived there, and his patience. I especially liked his singing in front of the guinguette Lapin d'Argile. I also appreciated that he was willing to do the tour for just two people, under the rain, mixing both perfect French and native English. I would recommend not to comment about people (age names etc ) . I regretted that I did not have enough cash on me to pay him an extra tip. He definitely deserved it.

Superb walk, very different, away from the tourists around unusual corners of Montmartre as it used to be, completeness, without getting tired. I will follow your advice to sleep at the Sacre Cœur even if I have to pray for one hour, that should be a beautifull experience. Thanks Robert. Pascale of Rouan, tour of March 2018.
