wonderful tour guide the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Saw so many wonderful sites
We did the Hop On Hop Off Tour and it went like clockwork. We were asked to be at the London train station at 5:30 am and we quickly found our liaison from the tour company. We booked through Viator, but there was a local tour company. The lady told us everything we needed to know about the tour and saw us through the check in process on our way to Paris. When we arrived in Paris we quickly found our contact carrying a tour company sign. He told us everything we should expect throughout the day and brought us to the bus. The buses arrive at the stops every 10 minutes and we never waited long to get to the next attraction. We found that the length of time was more than enough to see everything we wanted to. We didn't go in any museums because we wanted to spend some time at every attraction along the route. In hindsight we would have been able to go in the Louvre, for example, and still get to see everything else. Perfect day tour.
The trip was fantastic. Perfect way to see Paris in a day. I highly recommend to anyone thinking about doing this. Of course, we had great weather on this particular day and I'm sure that makes a huge difference.
Fantastic! Definitely worth the price! Our guide was very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. A great way to see an overview of Paris in one day.
Enjoyed seeing Paris, but it wasn't worth the money we spent through Viator.
Had an absolutely fabulous time. Our guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He was able to get us express tickets for the Eiffel tower as well as Notre Dame, so that we did not have to wait in line. Train trip from London to Paris was quick and smooth with beautiful countryside scenery. Viator representatives were very easy to spot and efficient at both the St. Pancras station in London and Paris station.
Great day trip. Busy day but managed to see so much and felt we had plenty of time at each venue to enjoy. Guide was terrific very informative and made us feel we were not rushing. Would definitely recommend the guided option and we enjoyed the upgrade option on eurostar.
Definitely a great one day trip to Paris! Enjoyed our train ride. Had a great tour guide and loved the hop on hop off bus for the day, made it easy to see all the big things we wanted to see for the day.
Other than the tour was cut short due to a train strike it was very nice
Tour guide was really kind. Paris is absolutely lovely and thanks to this tour, my younger sister and I got to see as much as possible in one day. Thanks so much Viator for helping make a dream come true!
I loved this trip! I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to just spend the day in Paris! It was so easy through this company!
Great day!! Everything went smoothly and the guides were informative and readily available. Highly recommend.
I had a wonderful time! I was traveling in a group of 4 and we really didn't have any expectations going into this trip so it was a delightful surprise. The tour operator really do an excellent job at arranging everything for you. You meet a representative at St. Pancras, where she gives you your train tickets and gives you instructions for the day and where to meet the guide at the train station in Paris. The train itself was comfortable. We purchased tickets in coach and just bought food at the train station to take with us. Sammy, the guide, met us in Paris and took us on the hop-on, hop-off tour, to the Musee d'Orsay, the Notre Dame Cathedral, and a boat tour of the River Seine. Note: We went on a Tuesday and did not know that the Louvre was closed that day so if you want to visit that museum, don't go on a Tuesday! We saw the Eiffel Tower but didn't get to go up it and some in our group were really disappointed by that. The guide switches it up so it was my impression that not all groups go to the same places. He did take us to a cafe where we had a wonderful lunch with French food. My advice is to go with an open mind and don't have your hopes on visiting anything specific since it can be subject to change. We went just wanting to see Paris and we did just that! Thanks Sammy!
what an amazing experience! Our tour guide Sammy could not have been any better. He kept our small group together and made sure we saw everything we wanted! He took the time to see to it we got all pictures. Took us to the front of lines so we did not have to wait! Lunch was great! Amazing!
I was the sole person on the tour and Sammy was an excellent guide as we whizzed around the beautiful city of Paris. I saw everything I wanted to see and more!
We were more than an hour late . Ian was standing outside waiting for us in the drizzling cold winter . His warm welcome n broad smile really touched us. The apartment was very clean n in the city centre. Highly recommended for short or longer stay.
This was a great trip, I read lots of great reviews about the tour guide sammi...and there all true, this guy is the bomb in Paris, getting us to the front of the lines at all the hot spots...it was a amazing trip...getting engaged on the top of the Eiffel tower was pretty awesome as well. totally recommend...
Paris has always been a city that I dreamed of visiting someday and this day trip was enough if one's time is limited to squeeze in a visit to Paris while vacationing in London for a few days. We enjoyed touring Paris with our guide, Sammy. :)
The tour was very well organized. Sammy, our guide, was very knowledgable and able to adapt to any changes that were necessary to make sure we maximized our visit. Even though, I have been to Paris before I felt as though I got to see some things that I hadn't seen before. I have done day trips to many cities in the past and I don't think I could have gotten as much squeezed in if I had done a self guided tour.
