Reviews of the Tours
A big thank you to Robert. He warmed up this cold day and offer an interesting insight of Montmartre: considering I walk here almost everyday, it was a real surprise …. Loved the tour!
Maybe you can share with him (and with the family) a couple of pictures
Please do let me know when you organise the Street Art tour, I would be interested Luca, tour of February 2021
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.

Hi Robert, Thanks again for excellent guiding. We followed your advice and had a nice lunch where you recommended and went then to the flee market at Rue Andre del Sarte. A very nice experience along with some home-made crepes and a bite of Vietnamse street food. We will certainly recommend you in the future. Ola K. tour of June 2019
Dear Robert, Thank you so much for our fascinating morning, walking the streets of Montmartre. What a fabulous guided tour. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. We ate in the corner restaurant (red awning) which you recommended. (I can't remember the name). The staff were extremely friendly, good food and reasonably priced. For your information, I have recommended your tour to my students (French) - suggesting they could have a guided tour in English. Many thanks again. Kind regards

Hi Robert, thank you so much for everything...we had an amazing time. It was so informative and we enjoyed the tour very much. Ken is doing good....just a bit sore but he is a trooper. Thank you so much for checking up on him and coming back down to lunch to make sure he was okay. We also really appreciate your help with finding a restaurant and helping us get settled.

Hello Robert, Thanks a lot for the beautiful walk through Montmartre. We have passed an excellent afternoon with you. We will keep a nice memory of that moment thanks to you, your enriching commentary, your sense of humor,and the little extra efforts such as the photos taken. Antoine loved it. Sylvie, tour of April 2018.
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 coeur even if I have to pray for one hour, that should be a beautifull experience. Thanks Robert. Pascale of Rouan, tour of March 2018.
