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!
The bus arrived on time for pick up and the driver very informative. The lunch on the Eiffel Tower was nice and served with efficiency and the view amazing. No waiting to get up the tower our driver took us straight to the front of the queue. The river cruise was really nice and relaxing to see a different view of Paris. Our bus driver was waiting to take us back to our hotel as promised. Perfect day with all the stress taken out of it. Great way to see alot of Paris in one day.
My tour guide was excellent. Even though it rained all day, he made it a good tour. What an honor it is to have lunch in the Eiffel Tower. I felt on top of the world. The service at the restaurant was very good. And whatever you do in Paris, you must take a Seine River cruise. It's one of the best ways to see the city. Our particular boat played charming French music as we sailed through French history, passing by the Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower and the many historic bridges of Paris.
The tour was as advertised. Small group of six people. Happy with the tour and guide.
Our guide Paul was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable about Paris spoke English perfectly and was interested in us. We got into the Eifel tower for lunch with no mishaps. Didn't have to wait in a long line. The Seine cruise was very good. Absolutely no complaints. I will recommend and use Viator again.
This was a great way to see the highlights of Paris in one day! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very personable, and loved having the "small group tour" experience. Highly recommend to anyone trying to maximize a short visit to Paris, or for someone trying to get an overview of the city prior to exploring on their own.
Timely pick up and the tour was superior! The lunch was also excellent!
Excellent tour guide; very knowledgable and personable. Kept up a relaxing pace while still keeping the group on schedule. Very responsive to tour group members; happy to answer any questions. Provided very interesting information as we toured Great guy! Very professional and committed to his job and his tour members- again, wonderful to have a Parisian guide.
Would be nice not to have to line up for lunch at the Eiffel Tower.
Wonderful tour. Our guide was a delightful gentleman who was helpful in every way. Lunch at the tower was, for a tourist facility, quite good. We also enjoyed time to visit Notre Dame.
The tour was everything and more that I expected. Our tour guide was the best! We only had 1 and half days in Paris and this was the best way to see and do as much as can be done in that time. I highly recommend this tour!
Great tour was able to get out at the major sites and visit. The lunch was perfect at the 58 Restaurant picnic style but very good. The Seine River Cruise was beautiful and a very different view from the water .
I don't remember the driver's name but he was very informative pointing out various tourists attractions with brief history. He was the one driving the electric van. The tour gives you a very nice view of the city's best attractions and a little time to get out and explore on your own. I recommend this tour because it is more individualized and you can ask questions. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was fun as well as the Seine River Cruise. The driver gave us the choice of being dropped back off at our hotels or a specific point we'd spotted to do some shopping. He also took the time to give me detailed directions to get back to my hotel. Very good tour! Excellent tour guide!
Great tour, great guide. The only thing I would suggest is that the tour guide turns up his microphone, especially for those in the back of the van who are attempting to hear him over the air-conditioner fans blowing back there. All of the small van tours we took had this problem. Lunch at the Eiffel tower does not include access to the top. We came back at night on our own to get up there. The lunch is served picnic style - you tell them what you want, and they bring it all at once in containers and it was good enough. In our case we were there early enough to have a table by the window. When we left it was crowded. An overall very nice day.
