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.
Gregory was an excellent guide . Very polite courteous knowledgeable funny and we all enjoyed his tour immensely. We would definately request him again for another tour.
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!
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.
Takasi did an outstanding job of sharing the highlights of Paris!
Great tour and guide
Highly recommend this tour to start you off in Paris .
Helps you locate things later for yourself . Also skipped the big lines to get into the Eiffel . Great lunch
Great river cruise .
Only had 2 days in Paris. This was an exellent way to see a lot in a short time. Pamela picked us up right on time at our Hotel. She was an absolute wealth of knowledge both historically and currently. She was friendly, warm, engaging and accomadating. The tour route was excellent. It was a great hop in hop experience of several amjor monuments. The pre-paid eiffel tower ticket was great. Skipped a long line. Lunch at 58 was excellent. We were there on a wednesday and at the end of the Tour Pamela was able to drop us off a the Louvre at 3;30 and it was open until 9:45PM so we got to see a lot; Notre Dame is amazing and a must see. She was able to drive passed all the major sites inclding the Arch de Triumph. Gvae us a great flavor for the city and what we anted to spend more time seeing. The river cruise was nice as well. All in all a great day.
Brilliant tour - this one is a must. Our guide Fred was the best. His sense of humour definitely added to the experience. Lunch at the Tower was great, We enjoyed our time there. The River Cruise was excellent. The whole day was an absolute hit. This one is a must. We did 21 tours whilst away for an extended period of time. This was one of the best. Thank you Fred
