Once home to the likes of Picasso, Van Gogh and Matisse, the dreamy, hilltop neighbourhood of Montmartre has earned its reputation as one of the most inspirational areas in Paris. Today it’s a popular tourist haunt and the most visited Parisian neighbourhood, but if you explore beyond the big landmarks and movie locations, you’ll find the original eateries and local hangouts that most tourists miss.
Our 3-hour Montmartre food tour starts early in the morning so you can experience this beautiful area before the big tour buses arrive. We pick up a buttery pastry and a coffee before taking the cable car up to the top of Montmartre hill to enjoy the breathtaking view. You’ll pass the Sacré Coeur and other highlights before we whisk you off to the backstreets behind Montmartre hill, where you’ll meet the real artisans that live and work in the area.
Enjoy an exclusive kitchen tour at a local bakery and meet the makers behind the bread. You’ll never look at baked goods the same again! Later, we sit down for a private meal at a humble neighbourhood bistro, popular for its simple and hearty homemade dishes. Share a moment with your new friends and enjoy food and wine selected by the Montmartre-born owner himself. Of course no Paris food tour is complete without crêpes! But have you ever tried a savoury crêpe? We take you for some of the best in town on our way back.
Join us as we walk beyond the typical hotspots and explore the food, stories and real people behind this historical neighbourhood.
Note: this tour requires walking up steep inclines. Not suitable for wheelchairs.
