The Euro star is the way to go and having a guide meet us at the London station to brief and send us off on our way, was very comforting. Then to arrive in Paris to a guide for the day perfect. I had injured my knee and moving slow that day and the guide made sure that I would always get a chance to catch up. I lived in Paris 32 years ago during colege but my family had not been there before. I actually saw more on the day trip on the hop on hop off bus in one day then I did going to school for a semester, this was because I traveled the metro when I was there.
Never had to stand in line to get tickets and the guide knew all short cuts. Thrilled we went this route.
Once again we had an excellent tour guide!!! The day flew by and we had a great tour.
Highly recommend this trip. It was a whirlwind trip but a great way to see Paris if you are short on time. Train trip is about 2 hours but only 20 minutes under the Chunnel. The opera house was closed so we spent more time at Notre Dame which was time well spent. As another traveller mentioned sensory overload!
This was perfect for us. It was a full day; but saw the most important sites of Paris. The best way to see all is sitting on the top of the bus. The view was impressive. Our tour guide was flexible when our group wanted to stay longer at Notre Dame than the Opera area.
The guide, Sami, was extremely helpful. Even though we chose the hop on-hop off bus tour, he still assisted us and made sure we were armed with all of the helpful knowledge we needed in order to make our day successful and fun. He also planned a very easy meeting point on the bus route for us to meet back up with the group, so we could all ride back to the train station together. We will definitely use this company again when planning our tours in the future!
Paris was wonderful! We had a fantastic time on our trip. Because one of the elevators was closed on the Eiffel Tower and the line was about 5 hours long, our guide took us to the Louvre instead. Being able to see the Mona Lisa and Venus di Milo was incredible! I loved every minute of the trip; and even though it was only for one day, I think we got a pretty good overview of Paris. Our tour guide Sammy was outstanding!
Great trip-wonderful tour director-very knowledgeable. Would like to do it again with her! Worth the money.
Everything went very smoothly and Sammy, our guide was great. A very well worth trip that gives you a taste for Paris in a day.
This was great trip! We did unescorted tour and had a great time. My mother is 74 years old so we wanted to take it easy and go at our own pace. We saw all the things we wanted to see. The hop on hop off bus was great and easy to find with the map they provided. Sammy was very helpful explaining where to be when so we can catch the bus back to the train station. He was in charge of the escorted tour but did help explain things to us too, VERY NICE! I would recommend this to anyone and would to it again. :)
The highlight of our trip. We were treated to all the sights and our tour guide was first-rate. We didn't get to go up onto the Eiffel Tower, but we got to go to the Louvre instead so it was a great trade off. I enjoyed every minute of the day and the guide even made allowances for my disability and not being able to keep up with the group as well as the others. He was very personable and made sure that we had all the information we needed when we needed it and then let us go and do our own thing part of the time. The train trip was great and relaxing and the time spent touring this beautiful city was well worth the money. There was no way we could have found all the things without the help of a guide. We also made it to Notre Dame right at 5 o'clock mass which just made it that much more special. LOVED LOVED LOVED the trip.
This was an exciting whirlwind tour of iconic Paris. Great weather added to the enjoyment. Our tour guide Sammy took advantage of time saved due to no lines at the Eiffel Tower to get us to both the Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral. Thoroughly enjoyable, but the pace and flexibility required to "go with the flow" of the tour guide may not appeal to everyone.
I had an amazing trip! Samy our tour guide was very informative and friendly.
The tour guide Sam was wonderful. He kept us moving all day and we saw so much. Great taste of Paris!
I thought this was a very good way to see Paris in one day. Our guide Sammy was very good, and with his experience he could get us around faster.
Excellent and very well organized day trip to Paris-we had complete freedom to see what we wanted and the hop on hop off bus was superb. The arrangements with the Eurostar were flawless and we were very satisfied with the whole experience.
Fantastic, everything was ok, and the scorted tour was above my expections
Everthing was perfect. We had a small group of five people, from three different countries and we all got along very well. Our guide, Mirjana Stankic, took excellent care of us throughout the trip.
Sammy was wonderful. He was fun entertaining and very aware at all times of the group. Do not miss the chance to take this tour...especially with Sammy.

Excellent. We were picked up at the hotel by a taxi driver on time. There was a nice person waiting at St Pancras station with all the information and tickets. We had a good guide during all the day avoiding queues. We had an excellent day using hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus. We became a good group of 7 persons spending a vey nice day and returned at night as booked.
It was a wonderful experience. I have always enjoyed my viator tours. Our tour guide was wonderful. We needed more time at the Eiffel Tower because it was croweded but overall the experience was great!
I would give it more stars if I could. My friend and I chose the escorted option and we were very glad we did. We got Sammy as our tour guide and took good care of us from the minute we got off the train, making sure no one was left behind. He was very knowledgeable (since he grew up in the city) and enthusiastic! My favorite part was that we didn't have to wait in line to get up to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. Breezed right past the endless line of people! I got to see all the other landmarks I wanted to go to with plenty of time to look around on your own as well. Definitely would recommend this to my friends and relatives.
