Great way to tour the major spots on foot. Would suggest that you take this tour on your first day to familiarise yourself with Paris. The guide while knowledgeable could have provided more commentary on the places that we visited.
I would recomend this trip as it is a good way to see Paris by day and by night in a completely different way. The guides are enthusiastic and make it fun.
It's a great way to get a taste of Paris in a short time. I'd suggest doing the walking tour on your first day so you get familiar with the city, and can then decide what you want to see more of during the rest of your stay in Paris.
Wear comfortable shoes because this is a long walk. We had a fit, tall tour guide who was determined to cover it all from Pont St Louis at one end to the Ecole Militaire at the other. A really great introduction to Paris. We stopped for lunch in Tuilleries gardens as part of the experience.
Would have been a great tour if not for the rain. Yes, it rained the whole time and being soaked and cold didn't make for a fun day out. We had on poncho and wet weather jacket but didn't help much; jeans, sleeves, head and shoes soaked! Our guide battled the elements and introduced us to Paris with a smile and positive attitude. Would love to do the tour again but wouldn't pre-book.
Our guide did not know enough about the area we were visiting. Couldn't answer questions like what kind of trees are lining the Tuileries gardens, for instance. Not great, but pleasant enough.
What our guide lacked in historical and cultural knowledge he made up for in enthusiasm. He needed to be very enthusiastic. He demonstrated a particular forte for ignoring all the rules of the road, leading our group of cyclists through several red lights and haphazardly around roundabouts. I was surprised that the whole party survived the tour unscathed, but it did make me thankful to still be alive and I subsequently enjoyed my holiday so much more. It was also worthwhile experiencing the pure hatred that the Parisians feel towards this particular tour operator. Overall I would recommend this tour if you are the kind of person who thinks everything is AWESOME!!! Otherwise I would hire your own bike and cruise around independently.,
