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

Paris, France

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

My Review

We actually ended up not being able to use our departure transfer voucher. In various places in the instructions that accompanied the voucher, we were advised to call Paris Shuttle 48-hours ahead of our pick up time to confirm the pickup arrangements. There were also 2, 3 and 4 hour timeframes referenced in the instructions. What seemed clear was that we had to call to arrange for pickup. We didn't see the instructions until the evening before. We attempted to call Paris Shuttle to either confirm a time or confirm that we needed to arrange for other transportation to the airport. We were unable to reach anyone at any of the Paris Shuttle numbers, receiving a message that the offices close at 8:00 p.m., and we assumed we had missed the opportunity to schedule pick-up for the following morning. Early the morning of our departure, the front desk of out hotel called to let us know that a driver was waiting for us (four hours ahead of our flight time). We had to send him on his way because a pick-up time had never been confirmed and we weren't ready to go. The instructions need to be revised to make clear what the traveler needs to do and doesn't need to do. At a minimum, the instructions should clearly state whether a four-hour advance pick-up can be assumed unless changed in advance and advise that no one is available at Paris Shuttle after 8:00 p.m. Until those issues, as well as others we had with Paris Shuttle on arrival, are addressed, I suggest taking a taxi or the train.

My Review

Long on presentation, short on content. The tour operator had to work pretty hard to stretch so little content into a multi-hour bus tour.

My Review

We took this tour twice, once with each of our sons. When Tammy led our tour, she was phenomenal - fun, enthusiastic and informative. The next time, a guy led our tour and the experience was quite the opposite. He basically just "mailed it in". Didn't take us to half the places that our first tour did and had very little to share about even those. The second tour was a total waste of money. Bottom line...the tour is great if you have a really good tour guide.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our younger son, who would not have had the patience for or the interest in the regular Architecture Foundation river tour, loved this tour - as did we. Our guide was very good - young, enthusiastic and knowledgeable - and was great with the guests. This tour is the right balance of excitement and information.

3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

For the first time visitor to Chicago, this is an easy way to get around to ensure that you see the main tourist attractions. The tour guide's cheesy script got on our nerves, and there were times that we wanted to leave the bus just to escape it, but otherwise, this is a tour worth taking.

My Review

All in all, we were satisfied with this tour package and felt that it was a bargain. Being first-time visitors to Hong Kong and Macau, we found the instructions for picking up ferry tickets in Hong Kong and Hop-on/Hop-off tour tickets in Macau insufficiently detailed to allow easy pick-up.
