awesome. We had trouble on the train but the guide fit everything in that we were supposed to see. Got a lot of history with a tour of the city. Saw all the highlights.
It was a super hot day and we had train issues nothing related to Viator. Charlotte was our tour guide and she was so sweet, we were very happy with her French background especially with the delayed trains in Gare Du Nord. The only things I would recommend is that letting people know exactly where to meet in front of bakery in St. Pancras However, there's no table, and let people know that your tour rep just shows up. There were 6 tours leaving from 6 tour companies in the same spot.....there's no group desk as the paperwork intended.
Lunch was fantastic, worth every penny not to have to wait in line to go up to viewing deck and lunch was very tasty chicken and potatoes. We had 2 little girls with us and the group was super good with them as was Charlotte!
Great tour, great tour guides, lovely lunch. Would highly recommend this tour to others.
the tour was lovely. Except for a little confusion at St. Pancras Station. The tour guide showed up late and was not at the location she was suppose to be. The train ride to Paris was nice. Tour guide waited at train station in Paris for everyone and took us to our tour bus. I think we should have spent more time at Eifel Tower, but time was limited. I would advise someone to do this trip.
This was a very nice quick trip to Paris. We didn't have plans to visit France on our recent trip to Europe so being able to take a day trip to Paris was great. The lunch on the Eiffel Tower was pleasantly surprising in that it was good, substantial and quite pleasant. I would definitely recommend.
Great Highlight reel for anyone wanting to see the main sites of paris when you dont have alot of time to take it all in properly. Highly recommended! Charlotte was an amazing, helpful guide
The trip was wonderful with loads of interesting places visited. Value for money indeed！
Paris is amazing and the Champaign Lunch at the Eiffle Tower was awesome.
The tour guide was lovely and very knowledgeable she talked about so many interesting subjects on Paris and the sights we went round on the bus and boat down the Seine River and we also went on a private tour in the Louvre.
Way better than we could have imagined! Charlotte our tour guide was great and so informative. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to the area!
An excellent experience overall. Our tour guide Pascaline (sp?) was amazing! Only two negatives: 1. Service at the Eiffel Tower restaurant was slow. We skipped dessert to avoid further delay in our tour time. 2. Getting to our return train to London was very rushed. Seemed poorly planned.
Excellent tour. Guide was very good. Lunch on the tour was great. Highly recommend if you only have one day to do this.
This was a very full day as there is just so much to see in Paris. The meal served at the Eiffel Tower was delicious. We were very satisfied with the day's activities which left us wanting to go to Paris and stay for a week to see all the wonderful sights at a slower pace.
Can't say enough about how great this day was. The most difficult part was waking as early as you need to catch the train. It was a 1st time for us on EuroStar and we enjoyed that experience. First class included breakfast and dinner on the train. Very nice ride, clean, and good service. In Paris in less than 2 hours. Everything here was perfect including the weather. Over an hour boat ride that was very enjoyable. An excellent lunch in the Eiffel Tower and a really spectacular long tour of the city, plus 1 1/2 hr. in the Louvre.
We took this day trip because it was the only way we could see London and Paris on our trip. It was wonderful, but it was a long day. Our guide, Pascal, was great! She had lots of stories to tell during the bus ride. Meeting the tour was not good. We stayed in a hotel next to St. Pancras station so we could be on time to meet our tour at 6am. When we got to the gate, no one had heard of Viator. Turns out our tour was really with the local tour operator. Once this was handled the Chunnel train trip was great. The bus tour through Paris is very good and lunch on the Eiffel Tower was fun. Because this is a single day trip, we didn't have time to explore the tower after lunch, we took the stairs down to meet the boat tour. The rain stopped and the skies cleared as we got to the boat. The trip along the Seine took us past all the landmarks we've seen on tv and in movies over the years. Next we went to the Louvre, which is closed on Tuesdays. Due to our schedule we could only take this tour on Tuesday, but, as it turns out, we only had about 90 minutes at the Louvre anyway. Even if it had been open, we would not have had time to see very much. We did have a walk around the beautiful grounds of the entrance and gardens of the Louvre and some shopping time in shops just outside the museum. The train trip back to London was not good. Due to 'electrical problems' in the chunnel, our train stopped at Calais just before the eastern entrance. We sat for 2 hours while other trains went past us towards Paris. This delay was not the fault of the tour, but be prepared for this sort of delay.
Brilliant..I am very glad I went. The bus driver and tour guide were very accomodating, and made sure everyone was accounted for. The lunch at the Eiffel Tower was excellent, the river cruise was excellant. It was one of those perfect sunny days river is smooth, music was great sun was shinning could have gone on the cruise once more. A friendly reminder if you have to use the facilities at the Louvre shopping galleria it will cost you. Would highly recommend this tour keep in mind the Louvre is closed on Tuesdays.
Booked this trip for my wife's 30th birthday and was brilliant. Weather was perfect to compliment the organisation of the tour. Clock work tour. Only little minor thing is there is no time to go to the top of the Tower which is a little shame but you won't worry about that when seeing the rest of the city. Charlotte is very knowledgeable and super helpful and friendly. Book with confidence it is value for money, but you will be tired, it is a long day.
