Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tickets and Small-Group Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was more than I expected it to be. Our guide, I believe his name was Conner, was entertaining, knowledgeable, energetic and all around a good guide. He was considerate of my mobility issues while maintaining the pace of the tour. In other words, he was able to make suggestions to me about where to stand or sit while maintaining his attention on the group as a whole and his focus on the information he was providing. The tower was very crowded, however, it was organized well and the crowds moved along efficiently. I would highly recommend the Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tickets and Small-Group Tour. Especially, if you can connect with guide Conner.

Skip the Line: Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

I was very disappointed with this tour. I had contacted the company asking if my husband could pick up tickets for us, so I could wait at a specified entrance, because I have mobility issues. The answer was "No". So, by the time I actually got into museum, I was struggling to keep up. At the first set of stairs, my husband told the guide that I was going to take the elevator and meet up w/ the group at the next level. She didn't tell him that they were not going to the next level, so when I exited elevator, my group was no where to be seen. Needless to say, I exhausted myself trying to find them and my husband was upset because he didn't know where I was either. By the time I connected w/ them, I was only able to follow along for information about a few of the art pieces. Finally, my husband and I dropped out of tour. This could have been avoided if I could have saved my walking by meeting tour at specified entrance and the guide been gracious enough to tell me what level they were going to first. Also, I might add, that a young couple w/ a toddler child was told they couldn't bring their stroller and to leave it at some office once inside the building. They had to carry their child during the tour. At one point after catching up w/ the group, the child was crying because she was tired of being held and the parents were exhausted wrestling w/ her. They were very upset and left the tour as well. They pointed out to me that their were other strollers and wheel chairs in the museum, so the guide must have worried that the stroller would slow the group down, when all she had to do for them was the same she could have done w/ me and that would be to tell us what level and what exhibit they were headed towards. I realize, as did the young couple, that the tour operated within a certain time frame and neither of us expected the guide or group to go slow for us, but w/ simple consideration, we could have re-connected w/ group and got along just fine.

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

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer from CDG to our hotel near the Eiffel Tower was without any problems. We were able to meet up with the shuttle van easily. We were concerned that there would be problems because among our regular size luggage pieces, we had one really large suitcase. But, everything fit and we were off in no time. We would definitely take this shuttle service again.

Moulin Rouge Show with Transfers

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this show. I had previously read online that the theater seating would be very crowded, so it didn't surprise me when we were seated shoulder-to-shoulder with other people. In some ways, I felt that this added to the ambience of the theater and show. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel w/o any problems. Our driver gave us some information about the city during our ride and was very helpful giving us information about getting to/from the theater to our pick up point because the streets were very congested with people and vehicles. I would highly recommend the Moulin Rouge Show with Transfers. Note; We attended the champagne show, not the dinner show.
