Super Saver Montmartre and Sacré Coeur Tour plus City of Light Night Tour
Meet your guide in the Montmartre area to begin your morning walking tour. Your guide will share facts and anecdotes about famous Impressionist painters such as Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir and Cézanne as you explore the bohemian neighborhood that influenced these legendary artists. See the building where Van Gogh lived after moving to Paris from Holland. Walk by the Moulin Rouge cabaret with its iconic windmill and learn how it inspired Toulouse-Lautrec's posters and paintings of the venue.
You'll also see top attractions such as Le Clos Montmartre vineyard and the stunning white Basilique du Sacré-Coeur atop Montmartre, where your 1.5-hour walking tour concludes. Your guide will hand you your skip-the-line ticket to Musée d'Orsay and leave you to marvel at the panoramic views of Paris at your leisure and grab a bite to eat (own expense).
You can use your ticket to Musée d'Orsay during your free time in the afternoon or at a later date. Whenever you choose to visit, bypass the long entry lines and delve right in, admiring the 19th-century art by Impressionist masters in the grand old building, a converted Beaux-Arts train station.
Night Walking Tour (1.5 hours):
On the same day as your morning Montmartre walking tour, enjoy a second walking tour at night. Meet your local guide (who may be different from your earlier guide) at the Louvre Museum. Pose for pictures before the Louvre's distinctive glass pyramid. As you walk around the Louvre's courtyard, listen to your guide talk about the masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa housed inside the massive museum.
See the City of Light in all its illuminated glory as you stroll along a bridge across the Seine River. Admire the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral glowing in the darkness.
Continue your tour by going off the beaten track, learning about local hideaways and hotspots most tourists don't know about. Finish your 1.5-hour walking tour in St-Germain, a vibrant, youthful neighborhood with plenty of bars and clubs. Get recommendations from your native guide on where to finish off your night and what to explore during the rest of your time in Paris.

Both of these tours were great. The morning one in Montmartre helped us see some interesting spots and hear some tidbits we would not have known on our own. The evening tour was also a lot of fun. They were short enough 90 minutes each so they did not take up a lot of our day. I would recommend both.
My wife liked the Montmartre tour, but I would have given that part a 2 only. The guide was very nice, but I did not learn much about Impressionist artists from this tour. Learned more about the people that lived in the former Bohemian artist enclave and the history of the Moulin Rouge. We were not even told where to find the artists area in Montmartre, and wound up descending the hill, and having to climb back up to find it...Sacre Couer was ok, but not as impressive as I expected either. The only reason this tour got a 4 was my wife's opinion on the Montmartre part, and the Night Walking Tour. The guide on that part was exceptional, a true professional, perfectly suited for what he is doing. He told us and showed us much about the Louvre, from the outside, got great subset pictures from there, around the pyramid. Then walked us over the Seine and into the SGDP St Germain De Prix? neighborhood in the Latin Quarter, which was a highlight of our trip!
Loved our guides loved the tours learned so much loved being outside and walking
This was one of my favorite tours in Paris. You really get the feel of Monmarte in this walking tour. Our guide was excellent and enthusiastic. There are no artists painting outside anymore, but it is a great historical tour. You can really feel you are there when hearing the history of Montmarte.
Absolutely must see area when visiting Paris.
I really enjoyed the morning Montmartre tour. Our guide was great and the sites were beautiful. She pointed out some great bakeries that she would recommend. It was the night tour that dropped this to 2 stars. The night tour was not what I thought it would be. I thought we would see Paris lite up at night. Instead we went to some off beaten streets of Paris. I don't know if our tour guide went out on her own and decided to take us there. But would rather have seen the Eiffel tower lite up rather than some stone wall in the lower level of a parking garage.
