5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

We really enjoyed this tour combination. Although we had been to Paris before, the bus tour went to areas that we had never seen. We went back to some of those areas on our own later. The river cruise is a great way to see Paris from a different perspective and provides an opportunity for some great photos!

Excellent Tour, must be the first tour you do when arriving to Paris. With this city tour, you will have the idea of what is important to visit or your preferences during your stay in Paris. The Seine River Cruise is a must, specially at sunset, the romantic music, the beautiful sunset, the cruise, Paris is great!!

We planned this tour for our 1st morning after arriving for a 10 day visit. We used it to get our bearings in Paris in the comfort of a tour bus and boat ride. It was the perfect way to start. We eventually made it back to everything on individual tours or exploring by ourselves but it was very helpful to get the insights of our guide and get a feel for where things were and how best to get to them. it was also great to see Paris from the river.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

Great tour for an intro to Paris. Due to traffic, blocked streets and crowds our total time was more than 3 1/2 hours....okay with us, but don't schedule to tightly. River cruise ends at the Eiffel Tower. Good time for a tour there if time allows. Taxis plentiful for return to hotels. Highly recommended for first day in Paris.
