Giverny and Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Overall, I felt that this excursion was just fair. I think that both places are worth seeing, but the disappointment came with the tour guide. Her english was poor at best, and had difficulty speaking and understanding the language. When we arrived at both destinations, we were given very little information and both tours were self guided. Overall, if the tour guide had been better, it would have made for a more enjoyable trip.

Skip the Line: Notre Dame Cathedral, Tower and Ile de la Cite Half-Day Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is not a half day tour...took less than 2 hours. We did a walking tour of the island which really didn't have much to see. We waited on the same line as everyone else to enter Notre Dame, but fortunately, we were there early so we didn't have a long wait. The advantage here is if you want to walk up the Bell Tower (all 422 steps) then you skip that very long line. The bell tower is worth seeing, because you see a beautiful view of Paris (the bells were ringing when we were up there) and are eye to eye with the Gargoyles!

Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a fantastic tour. So very interesting and moving. Our tour guide Eliza was incredibly knowledgable. She is from the region of Normandy and was able to explain things in detail. She spoke about any and all topics from the time she picked us up to when she dropped us off. I was not sure if this excursion would be interesting for myself and teenage daughter, but the entire family felt that this was a highlight of our time in France.

Paris to Bruges Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

While Bruges is a beautiful city, my biggest complaint was with the tour guides. We were on a bus that was half English speaking and half Japanese. The trip from Paris is about four hours long...more that enough time to give information about the surrounding area and Bruges prior to arriving. Once we arrived, we were given very little info (no maps of the city) and given 3 hours of free time to do what we wanted. That is all well and good, but we had no idea what we were looking at! I felt that the guides should have been giving us more information on the bus, rather than sleeping.

My Review

Fun way to see Paris. Our driver, Antoine was very pleasant and took us to all the places we wanted to see. My only complaint is that we had to change our tour (towards the end) because he was running out of gas. For what this excursion cost, gas should not be my problem...

Learn How To Make French Macaroons in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a very interesting and unusual thing to do! We went to a french chef's personal apartment where she had everything waiting and ready for us to bake. We made two varieties of macaroons (raspberry and milk chocolate and coconut). We were a small group, just four of us. It took about 3 hours, and Marthe was great. We each left with about 15 macaroons each in a box to take with us. Fun and unusual experience!

Moulin Rouge Show Paris

Paris, France

My Rating

My Review

I really didn't know what to expect from the show. I thought there would be can- can dancers, but it was more than that. There were singers (topless), dancers (topless) a juggler, and woman swimming with snakes (topless) and roller skating acrobats. Honestly, it was just weird! The acts are all over the place. The roller skaters fell, the snakes were escaping form the pool and a dancer fell. Good thing they served Champagne!

This is worth the price just to skip the lines alone! Our guide was very interesting and informative. We saw all the usual highlights, and she made it fun to learn a little more about what we were seeing.
