Eiffel Tower, Seine River Cruise and Paris Illuminations Night Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The Eiffel Tower view was very nice. I wish we were given the option to pay extra to go up to the top of the elevator. The River Cruise was also very nice, and interesting, pointing out a lot of history and landmarks. The Illuminations Tour seemed like a waste of time. Short on time and information, covering very few landmarks. Overall I'd recommend this as a good way to see quite a few Paris landmarks at night so you could return to your favorite spots by day.

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and her English was easy to understand. She also did a great job getting us to the highlights of this amazing museum in a very logical chronological sequence. The headsets worked well to allow us to spread around exhibits and to find each other as we moved between rooms. It was also a good use of time to have our tickets in advance as it looked like the ticket lines could get quite long. After the guided tour I took a little break that she suggested then stayed until they closed as there was so much to see in that enormous museum. If you like art you will love the Louvre.

Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Orly Airport (ORY)

Paris, France

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

My Review
The driver was friendly and knowledgeable about getting around Paris. He was also prompt in picking me up. Although I kept pointing out that the hotel name and street name that I had in my records did not match where I was being dropped off, he insisted it matched his paperwork. He pointed to the end of an alley and a sign saying "hotel" which I followed with my luggage in tow. After waiting at the counter they confirmed I was at the wrong hotel and gave me information on how to get to the right location using the subway, which I did, fully loaded with luggage and no knowledge of French.
