This was an extremely worthwhile tour. The tour guide took great care to explain sites during the driving tour and we spent at least 45 minutes in the cathedral. The tour guide lead a wonderful and informative tour inside Notre Dame.

Good overview of historic sights by bus, able to go inside Notre Dame for 1/2 hour. Should consider adding a visit to St. Chapelle which is in the same area - the "jewel of Paris".

Not your best tour. Was not very informative and the guide seemed distracted.

The guide was pleasant, but commentary was not frequent. I wanted more information, which she knew, but only offered if asked. The tour within the Cathedral lasted only approx 15 mins and beyond that we were on our own. A bit disappointing. I was expecting considerably more historical content than what was received.

This was an okay tour as we did see alot from a bus, but we were on a tour which included english and spanish speaking tourists and therefore did not get very much information about what it was that we were seeing and by the time she told us what we were seeing it was already past.

Great because it was raining but overpriced for what was offered. The only stop was the Notre Dame which was a free attraction anyway. Needs to be priced less...way less. Not worth the money.

This tour was advertised as handicapped accessible. While the cathedral was indeed accessible, the tour via boat was not. Luckily for me and my sister, other tour members helped carry my cart up and down the stairs to the quay. I discovered upon reaching the cathedral that I could have gotten in for free, along with my sister due to my handicap. We could have taken a taxi and gone right into the cathedral. I recommend that everyone investigate more before booking through an agency. BTW your tour guide was very knowledgeable about the historic area of Paris but we went through far to fast to really experience anyrhing.

Not worth the money. Everything was drive by, head phones went in and out so you couldn't really hear on the bus, and there was almost no information given on the church or its history. You also did not receive skip the line access.

It was disappointing. We were just dropped off at Notre Dame Cathedral and picked up in an hour and we were on our own. The city tour was ok but not to my expectations.

I was disappointed in this tour. It did not represent good value nor was it the best way to see the city. The bus tour was hurried and provided passing views of the important monuments and historical buildings. Also, the tour was done in 4 languages which watered down the amount of detail the guides could share. The guides did a nice job walking through the Cathedral and shared some good information. The tour had no finality as we were told to go on the boat portion alone. Some bad information led to a mix up which prevented us from going on the boat tour that day. The local operator did a nice job of fixing the problem the following day.

The guide was not really very knowledgeable about historical Paris. As the tour was done in Spanish and English this may have been a problem

Awful tour. Skip it. Poorly organized. A lousy bus ride and they put 3 different languages on the same tour. They put all of the visitors at risk as the guide cut a long line at the Notre Dame Cathedral. They left no time for any viewing on your own. If you weren't ready in20 minutes you had to make it back on your own. Save your money and skip it.

We were disappointed with this tour. We felt that the bus portion of the tour did not go to enough sites and seemed a bid short. The river boat portion of the tour was ok. Fortunately our tour guide was wonderful. I would not recommend this tour and I thought that the company came up short and putting in another context screwed us.

The actual portion of tour when our guide was sharing information was disappointing. There was no dialogue during the boat cruise, and the "guided" tour of Notre Dame was limited to a few minutes outside the cathedral. Fully 12 to 16 of us assumed we would be traveling on a mini-van, so there was anxiety among us until boarding the full-size bus as to where our coach was. When I re-read the description of the tour, I saw where my misunderstanding came from as it explained if weather didn't permit, we would return via mini-coach instead of the boat. Frankly, I would not recommend this tour, but we did enjoy ourselves and our guide.

It was not good value for the money spent, we understood it was an English tour ut turned out to be Spanish and English, very short did not include a tour guide in the cathedral as it was a Sunday? This should have been explained prior to purchase
