Small-Group Gourmet Food and Market Tour of the Bastille District in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Our guide was very friendly and informative but the 'tastings' were very disappointing;
One very, very good croissant - score 11 out of 10!
Then sadly downhill with a walk around the market we could very easily have done on our own and mediocre samples of everyday produce;
A small sample of pie
A small sample of ham.
A few plum like fruits, damsons I think.
A sample of oysters
A small sample of a selection of three cheeses.
One taste of one mediocre wine.

I reckon the whole lot could only have cost less than 20 euros for the four of us that were on this tour and regardless of cost was a real let down.
Do NOT book this trip!!

Paris City Tour with Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower Lunch

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was another success and we have only dropped a star because the commentary on the cruise was pretty rubbish due to it being relayed over a hand-held speaker with pretty short lead. This meant that it was impossible to take photo's, look at the sights etc, as well as listen to what was of interest.
I appreciate that in a multi-lingual enterprise it is hard to cater for everybody. but, to be honest, that is the service providers problem - not the customer's!
I am sure that with a bit of thought this could be resolved.

The city tour was great and the commentary via headphone worked well here.
Lunch at the Eiffel tower was an experience in itself and was only marred by the fact my wife was on crutches due to a car crash 3 days before our trip, but we can hardly blame the tower!

Moulin Rouge Paris Dinner and Show

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Absolutely fabulous, mind blowing, dazzling, incredible..........and on, and on!!
Highly recommended and cannot be faulted in any way.
The food was excellent, the pre-show cabaret was ok, and the show?
It is something I will never, ever, forget and I would go daily if I could!
Only one criticism......it was not long enough!

Dinner Cruise on the Seine River with Hotel Pickup

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was our first trip out after arrival in Paris and it was wonderful.
This was one of the smaller cruise boats and was much better than it's larger cousins as it provided a far more intimate setting with better views of the Seine.
The food was far better than we expected and the service was A+
Paris by night is just amazing!
