Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Walking Tour including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The tour description covers this tour pretty accurately! We saw an amazing selection of works in the Louvre, and our guide was remarkably knowledgeable, articulate (in English for our tour) and helpful about ways to get the most from our visit. We were pleasantly surprised by seeing such a large range of works, with fascinating and well-paced discussion. The tour was quick, yet did not feel rushed.

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

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a fascinating and well-paced tour of the Eiffel Tower. Our tour guide (the Mexican Luis) was very articulate (in English for our group), very knowledgeable, considerate, and personable. The weather was a cool and damp for our visit, and he was very good about keeping us as warm and dry as possible. The "skip the line" tickets were well worth it, and our time with Luis was fantastic.

Versailles and Giverny Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was very well run, with a comfortable bus and fantastic lunch stop in the middle of the day. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and spoke English very well. Giverny was fantastically beautiful and peaceful. It was inspiring to see where Monet lived and did so much of his work. The trip to Versailles was also impressive - such beauty was impressive. I could easily see it being intimidating, as intended when it was built! Our radio headset systems ran into a bit of interference in Versailles; a neighboring tour seemed to be using the same channel. This was only a problem for a small fraction of the tour; I think the tour guide made special effort to separate our groups as much as possible.

Seine River Cruise and Paris Illuminations Tour

My Review

This was a very good tour - the boat was not crowded and well-designed. It was easy to sit and easy to move a bit to get pictures. The commentary was fascinating. I wish the handsets for listening to the commentary (a bit like the handset for a pay phone, with a heavy cable) were a little more flexible or even wireless. I found it inconvenient to take pictures while listening.
