Viator VIP: Palace of Versailles Small-Group Tour with Private Viewing of the Royal Quarters

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I cannot say enough nice things about this tour. It was sooooooo worth the extra money for a private viewing. Our tour guide was GREAT. He was witty and very funny. He even had us singing a song so we could learn some French, too funny. This tour was not rushed or crowed and the guide inside was just so knowledgeable. It was so amazing to be inside the hall of mirrors with only a hand full of people. No one pushing or shoving to get a pic. We saw the opera house which the general public does not have access to and the Chapel which is blocked off to the general public. We were actually walking around in the Chapel while the general public was trying to catch a peek at it. Amazing. The weather was horrible, however our tour guide said he would try to work his "royal connections" to see what he could do about that as well, again we loved him. He suggested a great restaurant on the grounds and when we met back up at a different restaurant and the waiters wouldn't let us set down to get out of the rain because we weren't buying customers Kevin took care of that as well. This was such a wonderful way to spend the day and see this lovely place. We will use this specific tour company again if we come back to Paris for a visit.

Seine River Cruise, Paris Illuminations and Dinner on the Champs-Elysees

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was a nice night on the town. Here is what I enjoyed about this tour the River cruise is really nice and gives you quite a bit of information about La Seine and some of its surroundings and in your spoken tongue. I was disappointed in the Paris illuminations part of the tour. You see things but there is no stops or time for photo opps unless you are at a stop sign. That part needed to be slowed down. I loved dinner at Chez Clemont. We had a wonderful server, met some sweet ladies on the Illuminations part of the tour and had dinner together. Dinner is late (very late) so be prepared for that but I did enjoy it. You do have to find your own way home at the end of this tour which is another issue that late in the evening so make sure you can catch a taxi or know the bus/metro system. We found a bus and had no issues.

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

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This was a nice tour filled with lots of facts about Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Although our guide was good, he was also very laid back (which can also be good) however when you have other tours scheduled not soooooo good. We missed part of the tour because we had to go so we could make our other scheduled and paid for tours. Had this tour started at the time it was supposed to according to the paper and time we requested to be booked at 10:30am not 11:30am we may have been able to get it all in. Ah C'est la vie. Live and learn.

Romantic Horse and Carriage Ride through Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

For the money spent it was OK. The sights were beautiful after all you are taking a stroll via horse in Paris. Our carriage driver was nice but didn't really tell us a lot about the city we were seeing before us. And for the money spent I thought it was alright. I think I could have taken other tours that would offer more information and the ability to see more for the money. That being said my daughter did so love being in Paris and seeing some of it via a horse drawn carriage. The driver even stops and takes your picture for you which I thought was also nice. It was misty the day we went and a nice customer service touch would have been to have a blanket to offer us for the cold.
