Paris City Tour, Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We only had 2 days in Paris and booked this tour as the skip the line tickets for the Eiffel Tower were not available and your web site had then. Then one week before our departure the Eiffel Tower tickets did become available - go figure - but we stuck with our original plans to take the tour.

It was exactly as described - we met at the designated office, left promptly on time in a very comfortable tour bus and saw the sights. We then were driven to the The Eiffel Tower, were given our entrance tickets and also our tickets for the Seine River Cruise which we could use at our leisure. We were escorted to the elevator of the tower where we could stay as long as we wanted. We did purchase additional tickets to the very top level which seemed reasonable (got a senior rate but sorry we can't remember exactly how much they were).

Our conclusion was to exit the tower and take a short walk across the street and down a long set of stairs to the river cruise. No handicapped ramp was visible, so do inquire if you need to use one. The wait was just a few minutes and we were off for our round trip cruise. We had originally thought his was a hop-on-hop-off boat and had planned on getting off and back on along the way but it is not. The cruise ended right back at the Eiffel Tower and we were able to see the lights come on as we walked back to our hotel.

We would recommend this tour for a quick and comprehensive way to see the major sites from both the road and river with the bonus of having the opportunity to go up the Eiffel Tower.

Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We called the number supplied upon our arrival and were told which outside door to wait at. The very friendly airport personnel kindly directed us to its location. Our wait was just a few minutes and away we went for about a 45 minute drive to our hotel with 2 stops along the way for other passengers. We were in no hurry as our hotel room was not available so enjoyed the drive and sights along the way.

The van was very clean and the driver talked to all 6 of his passengers, pointing out sights and giving us many much appreciated tidbits about Paris.

London Shared Arrival Transfer: Airport to Hotel

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
We booked a shared arrival transfer to our London hotel from Heathrow airport. We were traveling thru Europe and did not have internet access until the end and noticed that we had an urgent email from the providor (not Viatour) stating that there are no shared vans in London and that it would cost us an additional 30 pounds for a private van. We had no choice but to accept those terms upon our arrival. However, the driver called his company and they offered us only an additional charge of 20 pounds. Viatour needs to change their web site offering the London Shared Arrival Transfer since it doesn't exist!

Barcelona Airport Arrival Shuttle Transfer

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We arrived in Barcelona after an all night flight from the US. The tour operator was not waiting for us with our name on a sign, but we were able to find the local contact tour desk in the airport and they sent our diver quickly. We had the shared van transfer as we ordered and were promptly delivered to our hotel. We would highly recommend Viatour for Barcelona, although we did had issues with this company at Heathrow.
