Seine River Cruise and Paris Canals Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great tour. A complicated metro ride and then a confusing walk to the outskirts of Paris, but a really fun trip back. Traversing the locks in the canals drew crowds who waved at us and chatted from the bridges as we passed. The narrator easily switched from French to English and had enough anecdotes to keep everyone charmed.

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Well worth it for two reasons-: 1) We skipped a very long line - people had been waiting for over an hour when the museum opened and 2) our guide provided extremely valuable commentary and insights on little known aspects of the museum itself as well as the famous works housed there.

My Review

The crowds were incredible. Even with our tour we waited for 1.5 hours to get in, primarily due to funneling into one of two security checkpoints where the ONE guard stationed there carefully searched each bag, backpack and purse. People were three deep at all the viewpoints and lines for elevators going above the second floor were over an hour long. It is an amazing monument, and I'd like to return at a different time of year to see more of it.

My Review

The van was prompt picking us up, but then we waited while he toured other terminals and picked up additional visitors. As soon as we were full, we zig-zagged through the streets to hotels all over Paris. Even though we were the first on and last off, it took us a little over an hour to reach the hotel. That's better than the Metro, and much cheaper than a taxi.
