Tour/Activity

Arc de Triomphe Walking Tour with Access to the Summit

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were not sure if this was going to be worth it but it proved to be great.
The views from the top are fantastic and give you a great perspective of the city layout.
The history behind its construction and time taken were a revelation in relation to some other monuments.
The climb up the stairs is well worth it.

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

Versailles is a great tour to take but you really need more than 4-5 hours as the tour of the Palace takes around 2-2.15 hours. The Palace does not open until 9am then you don't really have enough time to fully enjoy and appreciate the gardens before heading back to Paris.
The Palace,including the opera house are full of history and richly ornate and a must see.
There should be more concise information regarding the water fountains show as we were given two different accounts and missed some of the shows.
Make sure that you finish the available tour in time to see this as it really enhances the gardens.

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

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

How can you come to Paris and not do this tour. The line ups for elevator tickets are very long so skip the line is a must.
We had a great and informative guide in Connor(? spelling).
The views from the tower are breath taking.
Make sure that you also see it at night at the hour from 10pm when they put on a light show for 5 minutes each hour.

Bateaux Parisiens Dinner Cruise on the Seine

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Pricey but worth seeing Paris at sunset whilst dining. The food was ok, service adequate, the air conditioning was not working very well at all, we found ourselves and others spending a lot of time outdoors which proved to be a fantastic way of enjoying some of the sights.
Seeing the city light up is a great experience.

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

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I guess you cannot go to Paris and not visit it! Skip the line is well worth doing on this tour as the lines a re often hours long.
You cannot see all of the art on display in one day so take a pick of the must do and make a bee line for it.
Venus Milo was much more accessible than the Mona Lisa, which was extremely crowded and difficult to get near. They should really take a leaf out of Musee D' Orsay, which I would recommend in front of the louvre as far as quality and display of paintings are concerned.

Moulin Rouge Show Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We ended up upgrading our tour to include dinner and show. We got a better seat as a result but I'm not sure if the extra cost is warranted.
The show itself was very entertaining and worth doing.
Please note that the lines are very long and 15 to 30 minutes before the show may not be enough to guarantee a good seat as it is first in as far I can tell.

Barcelona Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The driver was there waiting for us as promised.
Nice to have someone waiting for you in a nice car but I don't think in Barcelona it is essential as their taxi services are quite good and cheaper.
