Linda provided us wonderful information about the Montemarte area. She was knowledgeable, kind and funny. Would recommend her to anyone who’d like a great tour.

We had a great tour of Montmartre lead by Cecilia. She was passionate and knowledgeable and super kind and friendly. On top of that, as an artist herself, it gave an extra layer of interesting perspective. She took us to areas of Montmartre I had never been before, as well as the not to be missed spots. She took her time showing us everything and patiently answered all of our questions – even when we got off the topic of the history of Montmartre! Highly recommend.
