We had a very knowledgeable & helpful drivertour guide name Jose and this is a MUST if you have limited time in Paris and want to see the essential sites and get a overall history of Paris. You will be dropped off at the major sites and given 20-40 mins to walk around and take pictures Thanks again Jose!!!
We loved it. In a short period of one day you get to know and see a little about a lot of Paris. The lunch at the Eiffel Tower was beautiful. The meal excellent. The guide "Fred " made you feel comfortable
The tour was excellent. The driver was very friendly and knew the information given very well. The only complaint that I have is the minivan. This car does not acomodate 8 persons, only 7. Two persons in the front seat with the driver is just not confortable enough for two adults. We were able to change the front seat with 2 other persons that agreed to the change. If no person would had agreed to change the seat with us, the only other posibility would had been returning to our hotel and cancel the tour.
Having been to Paris many times I booked this tour strictly for my mother's benefit as this was her first trip. I did not expect to enjoy and learn so much for myself. We had a great guide and see the city from the advantage of the mini van and the Seine was an extra plus. The biggest surprise was the food at the Eiffel lunch was fantastic! Well worth the booking!
Having so little time in Paris this was the perfect experience to see the sites of the city. When seeing the crowds at the Eiffel Tower our driver managed to get us straight through to the front of the waiting crowds and we enjoyed lunch with a view of Paris from the tower. Excellent.
For a first time visitor to Paris, this tour covered all of the highlights, and helped us determine where to revisit the following day. The tour guide was very informative and helpful.
As a solo traveler, this was a great way to see the city and meet fellow travelers. Our guide was very informative and pleasure to travel with. Not having to wait in line at the Eiffel Tower was a huge plus. As we moved quickly into the tower, we saw the very long line of people waiting. It was too cool to eat lunch in the Eiffel Tower and look out upon the city. It was just a great day. I thought it was a great way to get your bearing and decide what you wanted to in more detail. I knew that I wanted to see the Arc de Triomphe, but I did not need to walk to it. We circled it and I got great pictures. This tour allowed me to experience Paris in a compact period of time. This is a great tour if you want to avoid Eiffel Tower lines, have a limited amount of time in Paris, or simply want to get your bearing.
Even in light rain Paris is beautiful! Lunch was excellent at Altitude 95.
I purchased this tour for my daughter who was overseas, and doing this was easy and very efficient. She had no trouble with the vouchers or contacting the tour, and she really enjoyed the tour. I have since purchased more tours in other countries for her with no problems. I would recommend this as a great way to book tours. Thank you for making it so easy and smooth.
A great tour with enough time to explore the major features. Very competent tour guide. I would highly recommend it.
The tour guide was very interesting. The tour covered a lot of sights. The lunch at the Eiffel Tower was very good.
Loved it but for the price would have expected a glass of wine or champagne to be included in the lunch, that's my only fault! Had a wonderful driver and a wonderful day, thank you so very much.
Given as a gift to my son traveling with my sister. Both loved the tour and the great guide who combined a tremendous amount of information with humor. No waiting in lines and perhaps the best comment from my sister who has been all over the world she would not hesitate to sign up for another tour from this company and she has pretty high standards.
I loved the tour; the guide was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. I would never ever recommend lunch at the Eiffel Tower - the waitstaff were completely unfriendly, and the food was terrible. Besides that, it was a great tour. Thank you.
If you are short on time, or even if you have sufficient time, this tour covers all the highlights of Paris that you will want to see. I highly recommend this tour. We had six people in the van, along with the tour guide, so it was a much more relaxed and informative tour than we would have had with a larger tour.
I enjoyed this skip the line experience. Some more specific commentary on places would have been more helpful. I was disappointed that we did not get to walk through Montmartre, as I thought this was included.
This was good, almost like a guided tour. Guide was explaining about Paris and took us to almost all areas of Paris. Recommended for 1st comers.
Driver was a lil late, but it still turned out to be a great Day... Enjoyed it!
We had an action packed day in a private van with one other family. Great family photos early in the morning near the tower, then off all over the city. Very comfortable air conditioned van. Saw sooo much in the morning, then had window seats in the sold out restaurant in the Eiffel Tower! Impossible tickets to get in short notice , but Viator got them. The river cruise was peaceful on that sunny day. Expensive day, but worth it. Negatives, our tour guide gave us a fact per location ( if that) he was nice but disinterested. The family in the back of the van (from China) could not hear him when he did talk. I requested he adjust his microphone for them , he said it was fine, yet they asked me again to request adjustment. They could never hear his rare comments.
The Seine River Cruise should have been on a boat with a top to protect us from the hot sun. I would recommend the river cruise be taken at night and not in the afternoon. Otherwise, the tour was just perfect with a great English speaking tour guide.
