Nadia was excellent. I especially liked that she was so EASY TO UNDERSTAND. Whereas some guides have thick French accents, she did not. We could therefore concentrate on what she was saying better. Nadia was a fabulous guide, telling us not only about the history but also about anecdotes. Before arriving at Notre Dame, we especially liked going through the flower market and hearing about the famous criminal-turned-crime fighter Vidocq. Seeing Notre Dame's gargoyles was the highlight of my entire trip. I got some awesome, up close photos that I am going to enlarge and frame to remember this trip by. It was well worth the climb.
Just awful! We were unaware that you couldn't wear shorts to the show or you'd be turned away. My husband wore shorts, so after showing up to the tour office we had to find a shop and go buy some very expensive Italian trousers that he will never wear again. The tour company was nice in helping find a shop and in negotiating a discount, but it really cost us a bundle and was completely unexpected. The main course and dessert at the restaurant were the best part of the night. The river cruise was hot, cramped and boring, and we would have preferred to totally skip it. Our party of 5 was split up on the river cruise, and when we got off we couldn't find our driver for 30 minutes although we waited at the appointed location. As our party waited with another couple from the tour, we all wondered whether he was going to show back up. The driver tried to tell us that a hotel drop off at the end of the night was NOT part of the package. He wanted to leave us at the Moulin Rouge and not see us at the end of the show. Luckily, I had all my original paperwork to prove otherwise. The Moulin Rouge show was filled with a lot of gratuitous nudity. I cannot recall when they actually covered their bare naked breasts. Not a lot of talent. A completely wasted night.
