Our family took this tour on July 29th and enjoyed every minute! While we did not get to explore Paris on foot, we did see the highlights via bus and on the river cruise. Our tour director was lively and full of interesting information. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was amazing. The food was great, although the presentation was a bit weird - serving the food in Tupperware style containers seemed strange! But the Eiffel Tower was awesome to see in person. We did some great shopping and saw the Louvre. We did not have more time to give to Paris while on vacation, so the day trip was just perfect to check out the city. Having done that, we will definitely return to Paris and stay longer to explore this beautiful city!
Overall this tour was great. I was on a trip to London with my mom and had never been to Paris before so we decided to spend a day there. When we arrived at St. Pancras we weren't sure where to go. We got in line at the group desk and then a helpful woman approached us to ask which group we were with. The tour is operated by Premium Tours, which has a sign there, but we didn't know to look for it. She took us to the front of the line and gave us our train tickets. Boarding the Eurostar was easy and there are cafes inside the terminal to grab breakfast. Our guide found us on the train and explained where to go when we got off. We found him easily and met with another guide who would show us around Paris. The bus tour was okay...it would have been nice to get out at certain points for photos, but we did see a lot. The river cruise was lovely. My highlight was seeing the Notre Dame cathedral, even though we couldn't go in. Next we went to the Eiffel Tower for lunch. Our group got broken up in line for the lift and those of us in the back missed the Paris guide's explanation of where to meet her after lunch. By the time we got to the lift she was nowhere to be found. We made it to the restaurant and found her, but she didn't give us any further instructions. Lunch was very good. After, we went back down but had no idea where to go! A group member said we were supposed to find the red bus at the corner. Which corner? We weren't sure so we checked them all and eventually found the bus. This ordeal was frustrating. On other tours the guide offers a phone number in case of this situation but ours did not. Anyway, we had no problem with Louvre tickets (the guide purchases them for you). We saw the Mona Lisa and other key pieces. The shopping in the area wasn't great so the Louvre was a better option, even though we were exhausted! Great "Intro to Paris" tour. Would probably do it on my own next time to see specific sites. The Premium Tours guide was great!
I arranged this tour for 3 of my fellow traveling companions as part of a larger trip. My 3 friends loved the experience and said all went well from beginning to end. They would recommend it to anyone who only has a short time to allow for a day trip from London!
Overall this tour was fine. It was Paris that we wanted and that is what you get for a day. On the positive side the Eurostar was great. We were met at St. Pancras by one of our guides and led to the train where she introduced her self. Once in Paris is got a little confusing. Another guide met us but didn't seem quite as professional as the woman whom we met in London. Her commentary and organizational skills were not very good. Lunch at Tour Eiffel was good, the Seine cruise interesting and the bus tour hit upon the major landmarks. Be aware that unless you prebook for the Louvre admission you will not be able to get in do to the enormous crowds. That was a mistake we made but we still enjoyed the gardens and a few exhibits just inside. With all this we still enjoyed our day in Paris and would recommend it as in introductiion to he City of Lights.
This was certainly the way to do Paris in a day. All the sights in Paris are crowded so it is good to have someone lead you right in to what you want to see. Tickets are very easily purchased at kiosks at the Louve. It was our goal to see the Mona Lisa because the Louve is massive. We saw it and we're amazed at the huge painting on the wall opposite to the Mona Lisa, brief visit but well worth it.
Loved it We had a great time seeing everything. Our tour guide met us on the train. I think I would have rather had her meet us at the ticket area, because we were a little confused as to which line to wait in. the train was great and throughout the tour our guide was great and very informed. Loved our lunch on the Eiffle Tower. Would have liked a little more time for shopping but all in all we saw a lot and did a lot. It was a great tour.
Our tour guide was enjoyable and helpful. We only had a day for Paris and this was a perfect way to spend that day.
The day trip to Paris was amazing!! We loved the train that was fun, and our guide was the best. We saw and did all you could do in one day. I highly recommend this to anyone. Thanks for the experience!
Seeing the Mona Lisa in person was a once in a lifetime experience!!!
I give this trip 5 stars!!! It was a busy day but very fulfilling. Our tour guide was very knowledgable. Lunch was delicious at the Eiffel Tower. My only complaint would be that our tour guide could have been more visable and should have walked alittle slower for the older people in the group.
The River Cruise down the Seine was wonderful and the tour guide was very knowledgable and Funny!!
A really great tour; got a nice introduction to the city by Charlotte! Riding the Eurostar a fun bonus; would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
This was the PERFECT tour for a taste of Paris. I only had time to visit Paris for 1 day but this gave me the opportunity to see all the major sites. I paid the small extra fee to go on the guided tour of the Lourve and Im glad I did. I cant wait to go back to Paris and I definately plan on using Viator for tours of other citys!
