We had a great time on our tour of Paris. To see so much in one day is daunting but we did it. Herbert, our guide was great!. Lunch at Eiffel Tower was really good and the views fantastic. Our family enjoyed this tour greatly.

We started our tour with wasting 1 1/2 hours waiting for a Brazilian couple who was delayed to join the tour. But overall, we had a great time with our tour guide, Mr. Oscar Caicedo who made our tour fun, informative and enjoyable. We had a great city tour round Paris, passed through the Musee de Louvre, Notre Dame, stopped over at Arc de Triomphe to take some pictures, had a nice time at the Seine River Cruise and of course having our lunch at Eiffel Tower. It was breathe taking. Over all, it was a great tour.

David-our guide was the perfect host. Traffic issues kept us from one drive-by site. It was frustrating for all, but he kept his cool. We rerouted our plans and made the Arch at the end of our trip to the satisfaction of all. We received full value for the day's excursion.

An excellent way to get a good flavour of Paris in a day!
We shared the minivan with three American ladies who unfortunately were late at their pick up point. The minivan tour had just the right balance of stops/walking - although the driving/traffic in Paris is pretty scary!
The lunch in the Eiffel Tower was good value and service was excellent. It took us about 20 minutes from the beginning of the queue for the lift to being seated in the restaurant on the first floor. We then had about 20 minutes to explore the Tower before getting to the boat which is located nearby. Luckily the weather was hot and we were seated in the open area at the rear. The cruise passes under 20 bridges and provides excellent views of many of the Paris sites.
All in all ... a very enjoyable 'April in Paris'.

We took this tour on our first day in Paris to get acquainted with the overall setting. Pedro, our guide, was such fun and very informative. We found that his comments kept returning later as we re-visited places and remembered what he had explained about them. The lunch at Eiffel Tower is surprisingly good, views wonderful. Seine boat cruise had audio guide and TV in English as we passed monuments. All went very well, and we were pleased.

Great way to start a visit to Paris. The tour provided a great overview of the city and where things were. It helped organize the rest of our vacation. The Seine River cruise and lunch at the Eiffel Tower were an added plus.

The tour company was great, constantly advising me of changed pick up times. Only three people so it made for a lot less waiting after stops. Fred the guide was fantastic. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was superb, excellent meal and the views amazing. Recommended!

This tour in one word "FABULOUS"! We chose the Mini-Van (fits 8) and the Van was new, comfortable, clean and spacious. We had the best Tour Guide, Fred (from Paris), who was friendly, humorous, informative, kind, spoke excellent English and very patient. Fred gave us an excellent City Tour of Paris, complete with historical facts and interesting stories, Fred has a great personality and was also helpful in providing information beyond our tour i.e. favorite places to eat, bus/metro info. The Eiffel Tower was amazing and lunch at the Tower was very delicious, service excellent and staff polite and courteous. Fred stopped at the best spot for a photo op of the Eiffel Tower and let us snap away at our leisure - we never felt rushed during this tour. We ended the evening with the Seine River Cruise, which is a must to see the city of Paris from the water was magnificent! Viator was very helpful from the beginning planning stages (US Staff was awesome to work with) to the end of our tour. We were staying outside of the City (Van couldn't pick us up at our Hotel) and Viator gave us options to meet up with our group and assured us we would not be left behind :). The Paris staff was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, professional and patient. I would definitely use Viator again! Thank you for making our short stay in Paris so wonderful! ~San Diego, Ca.

Wonderful all-inclusive way to see highlights of Paris. Guide just a bit hard to understand but our group was just the two of us so manageable. Lunch at Eiffel Tower was perfect inclusion to this day trip. Will use Viator definitely again!
