Excellent experience! The trip on Eurostar through Viator was without hassle and the free tube passes with a Paris map really cinched the whole trip! Thanks Maria.
For an independent day tour this is perfect. You get the tickets to and from, a day pass for the metro and busses, and a map. There wasn't much more that I needed for a run through of Paris.
Really fun trip and worth every penny. Went like clockwork.
We had the day in Paris and it was wonderful. We were on our own in Paris and did fine. We went up to the top of the Eiffel Tower, visited the Louvre and saw Mona Lisa, visited Petit Palais Museum, walked down Champs Elysees, saw Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame. Loved it and so glad we did it!
I absolutely loved this trip! The only thing that I had trouble with was knowing where to meet at the start of the trip. (I took another Evan Evans tour the day before and was able to ask.)
The tour representative was extremely friendly and helpful. The information packet held all the information I needed and then some. This was a very well organized tour. I would definitely book this tour again should I have the ability to travel to Europe again.
Best day our family has ever had. My 8 year old son has autism, and the French were so nice and considerate with him. A+!
This was a great trip - everything went as planned. Although I wouldn't advise seeing Paris for only one day if you've never been there before, this was a greaty opportunity to return and see a few key sights. The metro card worked perfectly (and apparently better than the hop-on/hop-off bus tour). For anyone who has a sense of adventure and believes they can navigate the Paris metro system (it is not very difficult), I highly recommend this trip. Note that it is a long day.
Great staff, organization and reasonable price! Enough time to see the main Paris attractions. However, would recommend to save more time to explore the Eiffel Tower because of the very long queue. Still worth to go! Recommended and would go again!
An excellent option if you are pressed for time or just have an extra day in London you don't know what to do with. The schedule is perfect - early departurelate return so plenty of time in Paris. The metro pass saves time and money and the maps are very useful. You need to do a little planning on while on the train to decide what you want to achieve during your day trip.
The train was wonderful -a little early in the morning, but that allows for more time in Paris. The train station as well as the train itself was spotless and extremely comfortable!
Exactly what I wanted. The "tour" was as-advertised. I was given my Eurostar tickets, a map of Paris and an all-day Metro pass. I spent the day seeing everything at my own pace. If you're not interested in a guided tour and you're okay with being on your own, this is what you want.
We were novice travelers, but no more. The Paris trip by train was great. We did get the Metro passes, but instead hopped on the On and Off bus tour. That was well worth the money. You listen to the history of the city as you drive through the city, and get on and off at the many different stops. We plan on using this again when we go back.
This tour doesn't include a tour...only the Eurostar tickets and a Metro pass. If you know where you want to go in Paris, it's brilliant!
