Tour/Activity

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

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The driver drove like a bat out of hell, and it took us over 2 hours to get from the airport to our hotel. Our plane arrive at 6am. We were ready for pick up at 630am, and did not make to the hotel until 915am (we missed our 9am excursion). Good mode of transport, but do not book any excursions before 10am!

Disneyland Resort Paris with Transport

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

There was lots to see and do, but 12 hours at Disneyland is way too long. We ended up leaving early and taking the train and then the metro back to our hotel. The train station is on the same grounds as Disneyland, and the train ticket teller was very helpful in explaining what train to take to get back to the city.

Seine River Cruise, Paris Illuminations and Dinner on the Champs-Elysees

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We really didn't see Paris "illuminated" because it was dusk when the tour began. We did see some nightlife landscapes on the river cruise, but it was so cold, we stayed inside. The dinner was wonderful, delicious and a great value, but our bus delivered us to the restaurant at 11pm, and we were so tired from our long day, we did not have much of an appetite to enjoy dinner properly.

Perfume Workshop in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This experience was one of the highlights of our trip. Our perfume teacher/expert was absolutely wonderful! We each made our own personalized fragrance and are thrilled to pieces with the results. The next time I got back to Paris, I will definitely reschedule another session so that I can recreate more of my own peresonalized fragrance.

Paris L'Open Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The best value for the money. We walked and took taxis the first few days and use the hop on hop off tour bus the last few days. We saw more of the city via this tour bus than any other mode of transportation (with the exception of the segway tour which was awesome!) I highly recommend this and wlll book again the next time I return to Paris. One recommendation is that you have more of the blue line buses to the St. Germaine area. We missed an excursion because one of your buses didn't show up timely. A lot of people were waitng for that bus.

Behind the Scenes of a Boulangerie : French Bakery Tour in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Unfortuntately the bus did not get us to our excursion destination on time, so we missed this tour. I am giving them high marks though because when we called to explain that we were not going to be able to make it on time, the tour guide tried to reschedule and make arrangements for us to do the tour at a later date. Even though it wasn't possible, we still very much appreciated her efforts.

Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Walking Tour including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is that we picked the evening option of the the tour and were almost locked in the Louvre overnight! The tour guide, bless her heart, was so intent on showing us everything that we expected and giving us the full Louve experience that she failed to note that everyone was exhausted from all of stairs and really just wanted to get out of there. We stayed so late that only one exit was available. Unfortunately, our tour guide didn't know this and 6 of us had to trek across the Louvre to try at least 3 different exits before we found the one exit that was not locked. Great art, but the stairs are a nightmare.

Paris City Segway Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was the best excursion of our trip, and we booked over a dozen! Our tour guide Moko from New Zealand was awesome (and so fine)! He was very knowledgable, and we basically saw every landmark in the city within a 3 hour period. I was concerned that my aunt would have trouble with the segway (she is over 50), but she actually picked it up quicker than I did! It was quite safe, and easy to learn how to navigate. Everyone in our group had a fabulous time. As soon as I got back to D.C., I booked the local segway tour so that I could re-experience how fun it was to operate one and how easy it was to see the best that a city had to offer. This was the best time ever, and I highly recommend it to everyone.

French Wine Tasting in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

It was ok. I learned a bit about wine and how to properly choose and determine if the wine is pleasing, but the experience felt a bit rushed, and I was a bit lightheaded afterwards because they only served us wine without any bread or other food as promised.

Paris Ghost and Mystery Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Robin was very entertaining and just generally awesome. He really made the city and its history come alive for our group. Unfortunately, I think our group was a bit weary after the tour and kind of petered out at the end. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in Parisian history and wants to experience authentic Paris nightlife with a guide who is a true raconteur.

The Original London Sightseeing Tour: Hop-on Hop-off

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We tour the Eurostar into the city from Paris, and only had a day to enjoy the city. This bus tour was the best way to get an overview of the city. We rode almost all of the lines, and took the black line back to the train station when we had to return. The tour guide at the main office was very helpful and gave us several recommendations about which tour lines to take on a limited time frame/schedule. Overall, this was a great tour, but I recommend spending more than 1 day in London in order to get a more complete experience.

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

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

We got up early so that we could be ready for our 6am pick up time. Our plane left at 1045am, so we had to be at the aiport by 945am. Even though we were the first to be picked up, the driver made 3 more pick ups. That was expected and not a problem for the most part. Except the driver travelled alllllll the way across the city to the business district to pick up a passenger that should have been booked on a transfer ride with passengers who were located in her area of town. That detour to the business district added 45 minutes onto our travel time. The other passengers were all located within 15 minutes of our hotel, right in the city center. We barely made it to the airport in time, and our driver was burning rubber to get us there, even with the horrible traffic. They really made a huge error in judgment by booking a passenger whose hotel was farther away from the rest of the passengers...bad call..will take the train back to the airport the next time I go to Paris.

Paris City Tour, Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower

Paris, France

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

It was ok. The tour guide basically abandons you when you get to the Eiffel Tower, and you have to find your way to the boats for the river cruise, and to the metro to get back to your hotel. We would have loved to take a taxi back but the tour guide didn't tell us where the taxi stops were located, so we had to hoof it to the nearest metro. She did tell us how to get to the boats and metro though...thanks a lot
