Our Guide was very knowledgable and friendly. We did the full day tour so we were able to tour the gardens in the morning in addition to the standard afternoon palace tour. I would recommend the full day as the gardens are beautiful! The group size was small which was nice and of course skipping the line to the palace was great! The ticket to Marie Antoinette's Hamlet was included in the price of the tour which you are supposed to get to one your own. We didn't end up doing this because the line for the train was too long and it was very cold for a spring day so i'm deducting one star only because it would have been nice to skip that line as well. All around a great tour!
Perfect tour! You see the highlights you want to see and more without feeling overwhelmed or bored. Our guide Michele was amazing. Very knowledgable and funny and he really encourages interaction. The group size was large but the guide helped keep everyone under control and we never had a problem hearing what was going on or losing the group. I would highly recommend this tour. Not only do you get to skip the line and see more works than you could imagine but you learn the fascinating history of the louvre.
I think this is hands down the best way to see a lot of the city if you're short on time. I would suggest dowloading a map prior to boarding and planning which stops you will skip and which to get off at since the stops come up quickly and it's hard to keep track of where you are. We decided to do the Paris Grans (Green) Tour since we were short on time as this tour has the highlights of city. We were staying near the Eiffel Tower so we boarded at stop 15. We got off at the Invalides (great museum of you have time),Concorde Royal (many designer boutiques in this area), Opera House/Department Stores, Notre Dame and had planned to switch to the orange line and walk around the Latin Quarter and St. Germaine but since it was rainning and cold we decided not to. The only con is that the map provided doesn't make it easy to find the stop if you've ventured too far from where you got off so plan accordingly.
