Paris is magnificent and Versailles is breathtaking. We had a wonderful driver and guides for the day. It is a long day, but when time is limited, it is a must tour.

Pricey but so worth it. This was my favorite tour in Paris. Saw so much in one day and lunch at the Eiffel tower was the highlight of my time in Paris. We did so many walking tours on our vacation and this was a great change of pace. Great bus tour, then lunch at the Eiffel tower, Versailles in the after noon which was the only time of day with some walking, then ending the day on a relaxing dinner cruise. Completely recommend.

Loved this tour! It was a lot in one day but the day went so smoothly and the guides were all extremely helpful. We did this tour during the summer and I highly recommend it if you do not like standing in lines. We had plenty of time at every spot and we have a fantastic collection of pictures to show for it. My teenage daughters did not complain once and and loved having lunch at the Eiffel tower.

Definitely worth it...the guides were all very knowledgeable...being on the tour gave us quick access to the Eiffel Tower for lunch very good and also to the Palace at Versailles also very good. The Seine river cruise was very nice, quiet, peaceful, even romantic and the food was very good. The tour basically showed us from the outside everything we wanted to see, then we spent the next few days seeing them on our own.

Our guide was great, and the tour was awesome. You just cannot do this on your own in a day without a tour. If you plan to do Paris in a day, this is it!
