A lot of backtracking in the tour. But the content was entertaining and good. Just hard to navigate where it was telling you to go next.

Beautiful self guided tour that takes you off the beaten path of the tourist traps (just a brief walk though them). We could not believe how well done this was. So reasonably priced and a must do to learn about montmartre while walking through!

Loved this self guided audio tour. It was easy to download, easy to follow. The narrator was easy to understand and she made the tour fun and interesting. This was a great experience. Much better than having to walk in a group tour. I hate those! Please keep making more!
