Doing what: Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tickets and Small-Group Tour
Learned alot about the Eiffel tower's history and the history of those buildings seen from the tower, like the Ecole militaire, Eglise de Dome, and the Place de la Concorde. Hannah, our tour guide's stories were interesting and engaging. And skipping the hours and hours of lines was awesome. Definitely recommend this tour!!
I was very disappointed with the hop on hop off tour we chose. The first bus we got on would not accept our voucher/confirmation and said it was probably the wrong tour operator but that they really didn't know either. She didn't do anything to inquire or to assist us in any way. (Actually I felt like she couldn't be bothered) The second bus we did get on. It was the exact same bus line. No problem this time. Sat down and the bus went on route from Notre Dame to Place de Concorde without any commentary, just music. Very dissatisfied. Tried to ask the bus driver but he was too busy using his telephone. Finally demanded to let us off. Had to walk quite a ways to get to the next bus stop. Wasted a lot of time as a result of these issues. Commentary on this next bus was good. Also the buses go way too fast to enjoy the sights. Wasted our money.

Doing what: Paris City Tour, Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower
The tour provided a great overview of Paris. We drove along the Champs Elysse, went by Place de la Concorde and everywhere in between. And of course, the 2nd floor view from the Eiffel Tower was breathtaking (skipping the line was also great..i might add). The only thing was that the earphones for the audio guide on the bus didn't work very well, so I feel I missed out on some informative parts of the tour, but overall was very good.
This tour had some good moments, such as visiting Place de la Concorde, however it would have been nice to enter Musée de l'Armee and see Napoleon's tomb.
excellent way to know the CIty, very convenient, unfotunately, the service ended at 4:30 pm at la place de la Concorde, if you are close by, fine, if not, like me, I have to pay for a taxi to get back
A potted history of France delivered by a Canadian. However it worked out well. We started at 'Hotel des Invalides' then walked across Le Seine to Place de la Concorde and finished outside Le Louvre. OUr Canadian guide, Scott, was very entertaining and informative.
We paid for the two day ticket. We got on the bus at the Place De La Concorde on our first day handed over our printed ticket and was given our 2 day tickets without any fuss. The commentary is very good through the given headphones and we initially went on the grand tour which was very informative and took in all the main attractions along the Seine. We then spent the next 2 days visiting a number of the attractions, using the bus. We also did the Montmartre tour. Friendly and helpful staff, buses stopped very near to all main attractions. A must for first time travellers to Paris.
We think we may have picked the wrong trip for us. Although the Seine River Cruise was nice the bus tour was not that riveting. You drive around Concorde Square about four times, in traffic, and at the time we went the sun wasn't close to setting so not much was illuminated.
Despite this, everything was easy to understand, they did a great job accommodating all languages. All in all, recommended for older travellers but not so much for youth. It was an unnecessary expense in our eyes as we had walked the entire tour ourselves already without knowing it!
As we were in Paris for such a short time,this was a excellent way of touring the louvre,our tour guide was excellent,we saw the key things we wanted to see on our first visit ,although we hopped out of the tour a little early ,it left s with time to walk through the jardin des tuileries,place de la concorde,champs elysees to the arc de triomphe and have relaxing lunch before our 2,30 taxi to the airport.

Doing what: Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Orly Airport (ORY)
Although the driver was punctual, courteous and spoke more than one language, he dropped us off at the wrong Concorde Hotel, right accross the street from ours, forcing us to haul our luggage ourselves by foot almost a block.
The bus was late picking us up, so when we got to the boat, everyone had already had their photos taken to be purchased later, and all the best seats were gone. It was raining, there was rain on the windows, and there was no deck to go up to. We couldn't see anything that was being pointed out. The bus took us on a tour, going around in circles, pointing out the Place de la Concorde at least three times. My earphones didn't work. There were 5 in our group, three of us had faulty earphones. One good thing, the bus dropped us off at the Moulin Rouge at our request.

Doing what: Paris by Night Illuminations Tour and Paris Moulin Rouge Show
Without warning trip was delayed for 30 minutes. I liked that boat trip came as an extra. In overall information that comes through the headphones, could have been better. I am interested in the country I am visiting so everything matters, history, culture, people. Might be that others were happy with those bits and pieces like 'This is the Opera' and 'This is Place de la Concorde'. I would suggest everybody who wants to go to Moulin Rouge to go there, but without too many expectations. I am very demanding person, and surely the show was touristic and not that high-class, but still worth seeing with your own eyes and forming your own opinion.

Doing what: Eiffel Tower, Paris Moulin Rouge Show and Seine River Cruise
The dinner at the Eiffel Tower was a disaster and could have been so nice. We were instructed to arrive 15 minutes prior to departure and on the way round Concorde we had to go to the Metro and wait for a couple who were late. We had no choice of menu and after three courses and a coffee we were out in an hour. It was too rushed to enjoy the whole experience of dinner at the Eiffel Tower.
The evening after that at the Moulin Rouge was very good. Have a longer time enjoying your meal and forget the boat-trip.
