The only negative about this tour was finding the guide in Pancras station. The voucher said meet at the group desk at gate 5 but there wasn't one! When I asked a Eurostar employee for help they just said to wait around the terminal. Had some anxious moments as the time ticked by and no sign of a tour guide! Finally we saw a sign for the tour company in front of a cafe and we were taken care of. WHEW! I would definitely advise to place a sign or flag or something to direct you to the tour guide.

Other than that the tour was even better than we expected. The Eurostar was clean and efficient. When we arrived at Gare du Nord we boarded a bus and had a quick tour of Paris. Our guide pointed out all the sites we were passing. Then we got on the cruise boat on the Seine and had the most picturesque views of the Notre Dame I have ever seen! It was exquisite! We braved the slight drizzle and wind on the top of the boat and it was definitely worth it. Next we walked from the dock to the Eiffel Tower for lunch and bypassed a very long line. Lunch was more about the view than the food. Portions were small. Finally our guide took us to the Louvre and we saw the highlights on a whirlwind tour of the museum. Lots of walking but worth it! All in all a long day but enjoyed it. Not a moment wasted the tour was run seamlessly between tours. Would definitely recommend if you only have a day in Paris.

What an incredible day. We saw so much but never felt too rushed. The guide showed us all the sights and explained all the instructions for the day very well. the tour was the best, most comprehensive tour of Paris that we could get for only being there one day. It was amazing
