sacre coeur is so beautiful. The history, the limestone...lovely. We were sad we did not get to go back in and reflect for a little bit but that was our own fault lol

Tour concentrated more on sacre cour than just monmartre - was very good but would have liked a bit more balanced between the two.

Informative walking tour of Sacre-Coeur and Montmartre. It was really helpful to have a guide in this rich area.

Its better to have a guide than tour montmartre by yourself. Had fun!

Wonderful visit, structure that must be part of your plans for Paris!
