3-Day Mont St Michel and Chateaux Country Tour from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The itinery was great and the balance between being guided and having free time was balanced however there was insuficent time to properly explore the chateaux (especialy the gardens) on the 2nd and 3rd days which were all very lovely. Mont St Michel was well worth a visit. I did not expect to be spending so much time in a coach. The Motel food on the first night was not good, otherwise the accomodation was fine.

Provence Countryside Small Group Day Trip

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The guide was a delight. St Paul is a great place to visit - more time to have lunch at the Golden Dove would have been great. The chocolates at the bon bon factory were amazing(especialy the white chocolate with roses). Grasse was dissapointing we were expecting to see fields of flowers.

Giverny and Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A great day with a small group of interesting people. We had exactly the right amount of time at Giverney which is very lovely. Lunch was at a little restaurant on a river(delightful setting), and was very good. We had this trip at Easter so the queues to enter Versailles were very long and the palace was very crowded, this contributed to not having sufficient time to fully explore this magnificent palace. I would recommend this tour on a weekday to try and avoid this problem. The guide was very pleasant and he drove safely – not at all like a typical Parisienne.

Eiffel Tower, Paris Moulin Rouge Show and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Unfortunately 3 of the 4 elevators at the Eiffel tower were not operating so we didn’t have dinner at the Eiffel tower, however an excellent replacement restaurant was provided close to and overlooking the Eiffel tower. The night cruise on the Seine was beautiful and the Moulin Rouge is a must see show full of energy and dazzling colour. A very enjoyable evening with a nice surprise we were delivered by coach to our accommodation..

Skip the Line: Catacombs of Paris Small-Group Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Catacombs was an interesting tour through some of the history of Paris. This was not at all ghoulish rather a solution to a problem that is respectful to those whose remains are incarcerated there. This tour is probably not for you if you get claustrophobic as some of the passages are narrow and have low ceilings. As the ground can be uneven and damp in places, wear sensible shoes. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

Paris Pass

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

It was not clear that the Paris pass is in fact several passes that can be used independently of each other i.e. they don’t all have to start on the same day. If you get a pass plan carefully to get the most from each pass and be aware that many museums close on either a Monday or Tuesday so factor this in. We enjoyed using the passes as they often avoided queues(not always) and encouraged you to do things you may not have otherwise done i.e. a tour of the sewer!
