An absolutely stunning building. Our tour group was about 16 people however the tour guide really knew her stuff and got into a lot of details about the history of the building, architecture, use, etc.

Our guide was fantastic! She was really informative and didn't make it feel like we were rushed. Was a great way to see the opera house and here it's history without mobs of people.

The after-hours tour is limited and sells out quickly. It was great to have the place to ourselves and a few other groups. The guides kept the groups separate so we felt as if we were the only ones there. As warned in the brochure, the theatre itself may be closed due to rehearsals. This was our situation. I was disappointed but we were able to go into a private box and watch a bit of the rehearsal. As a fan of Phantom of the Opera it was fun to see the Phantom's box which has an honorary plaque. Book ahead since the tours are limited.

Brilliant architecture. After many trips to Paris, I wanted to see something different and it was a treat. We were lucky and were able to sit in the seats as well while a few of the orchestra were warming up which doesn't usually happen. I enjoyed this tour better than Versailles.

Whatever else you do in Paris, fit this tour in! Truly breathtaking. Our guide was lovely and incredibly knowledgable. I loved how the architecture ensured that 'nobles' were seen as they 'paraded' at the opera. Suggest that guide uses audio thingey for larger groups as sometimes was hard to hear.

Wouldn't see it any other way! Our guide Caroline was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. She gave colorful details of the building and answered an array of questions from our group. Seeing it after hours was sublime. No screaming children or people interrupting our tour for photo-ops. Our group was about 20 people. We even got to see some stage hands working on the nights ballet performance lighting and staging. Now I want to go see a performance!!!

AMAZING TOUR.

First of all, our guide was this beautiful Italian girl named Tiziana sp? and she was so good at her job. SO GOOD. She was informative, lively, and was full of anecdotes as well as facts about the history of this place.

Second of all, prepare to save A LOT of room in your camera/phones because you will be taking a lot of photographs here. The interior is INSANELY OPULENT. I wont say anymore, dont want to spoil the surprise.

BOOK IT, ITS WORTH IT!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It was very interesting and so nice to be able to experience the Opera without crowds of people. We were able to really view the opulence of the Opera and hear the very interesting stories from a well informed guide. We would definitely recommend this tour.

It's true, this is a jewel in the middle of Paris many people dismiss. It is beautiful and the guide makes it so much better. The guide was very knowledgable and helps you appreciate the beauty of it much more. Next time in Paris I would love to see a show.

Amazing. Our tour guide met us on time. She was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. We were a small group of about 16 people which was very nice. The opera house was more beautiful and spectacular than I ever imagined. We experienced a very unexpected treat. The opera was hosting a red carpet event that evening and we were able to watch and listen to the orchestra and singers rehearse Phantom. Imagine walking through the opera house listening to Phantom of the Opera. A WOW moment.

A wonderful way to finish a busy afternoon in Paris. It was lovely having the opera house almost all to ourselves on this tour, and not having to jostle with lots of other people. We were treated to lots of information you would never normally hear, and sights you would miss if you were just strolling through the opera house by yourself. It wears a bit tricky finding our way in, even though we arrived at 4.45 as instructed, as everything in the entrance area as roped off, and we had to keeping explaining we were on a tour, then were let through the roped off zones. At the end of the tour, we finished at the souvenir shop and although the woman there said the shop was open and welcomed everyone in, the shop then closed about 5 min later! You can visit the shop without touring the opera house itself, so I would recommend going to the shop on another day rather than trying to make purchases at the end of the tour.

This was my absolute favorite part of my entire month long European trip. If you can believe, I walked in right as they were performing songs from the Phantom of the Opera, LIVE, with opera singers and a harpist in this beautiful gallery with many chandeliers. When they performed "All I ask of you," I started crying, it was so beautiful. One of the best moments of my entire life, I will never forget it.
