Skip the Line: Versailles Full-Day Tour

Versailles, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Directions: Instructions to get to Versailles via train were skimpy to say the least. Inquiries to the office were helpful but the needed information could be provided on the voucher, i.e., metro lines, train stations in Paris, etc.
Tour Guide: Friendly, but very difficult to understand. Heavy French accent unlike other tour guides we encountered. The heavy traffic added to the difficulty which of course was not the guide's fault.
Versailles: The palace and grounds were breathtakingly beautiful. The visual portion of the tour was great, however this just added to the frustration of not knowing what we were seeing.

Outstanding experience. We learned alot about the bakery business and the impact of the French government on business in general. Tour guide was very effective.
The tour starting time was not as advertised. Suggest follow up a day to two prior to the tour date.

Omaha Beach Half-Day Trip from Bayeux

Bayeux, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour was very informative, giving us all a very close up and personal account of the activities taking place on the day of the invasion. The guide was very knowledgeable and fielded questions very effectively. The individual profiles described at the cemetery were very touching.
The starting time of the tour was not as advertised. We booked a morning tour (8:30) start. When the van failed to show up the office advised that our tour was changed to 1:00 (without notice to us). This was a bit troubling as we had traveled a great distance to make the morning tour.

Seine River Cruise: Sightseeing with Optional Aperitif or Snack

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This one hour cruise was as expected. The narratives were in three languages via loudspeaker, which at times was difficult to hear. Regarding logistics, it would be helpful if the name of the tour company was included on the voucher, ours was not. There are three cruise companies operating at that dock and we had to try all three to find our tour.

Private Tour: Customize Your Perfect Day in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our experience was outstanding. From the planning stage forward the tour company was very helpful in designing our tour and was very quick to respond to our every query. Our guide (Marie) gave us complete descriptions and historical information at a very high level. She was infinitely familiar with all the viewings we selected and brought a sense of humor into her narratives. This tour was by far our favorite among the five we took, all of which were very good.
