Some opinions on this walk

From the platforms of the Gare du Nord, through the glass roof of the Gare de l 'Est, and from the Canal footbridge, Juliette knows how to choose her decorations to tell us about her beautiful walk. And thanks to the distribution of the extracts, we almost believe it in the film. The music, the dialogues ... It makes you want to see him again.

Very pleasant under a bright sun. There were only a few of us, which allowed us to make the most of the explanations provided by our guide Juliette who was able to interest us with her comments and images viewed on her tablet. In addition she is very nice. We look forward to seeing her on ciné Montmartre.


- Alain

A very well conceived, lively stroll, punctuated with anecdotes, extracts or photos of films viewed on a tablet. An excellent balance between architectural information and cinematic details. A charming and fascinating guide, who, as a bonus, took us to some well-hidden places in the neighborhood! This is the 2nd film tour that I am and I fully intend to subscribe to others ...

- Brigitte W.

A professional guide who knows how to hold the attention of his audience thanks in particular to many anecdotes enhanced by the use of a tablet. 2nd visit with this guide who will surely encourage me to make other visits with him.
