Worth every dollar. Especially on a weekend day, when you got to bypass the lines at the Louvre and Eiffel Tower. Loved taking the boat between places, and Stephanie, our very informative and personable guide, reminded us the boat tickets were good through the evening. When the tour ended at Notre Dame, we hopped back on the boat and did some more comfortable sightseeing from the river....

This was a fantastic tour, well worth the money. It was all perfect, from the Louvre tour to the cruise along the Seine. Lunch on the Eiffel was a highlight and was a very memorable part of this tour. Our guide Manuela was fantastic and I cannot thank her enough for being such a great tour guide.

I had been to the same places on my own a few times before but this time with the tour guide, Isabella, she added stories and histories to places, fascinating indeed. The meal at Eiffel Tower is unexpectedly delicious.

The Paris tour was excellent! It covers the most common things to see in Paris via the canal boat. The canal boat was the taxi used to get to each place and no commentary was provided while on it.

The first stop is the Louvre Museum to get a nice summary of the important pieces in the exhibit, including the Mona Lisa. Next, we stopped at the Eiffel Tower and had lunch and some spare time. There was enough time to climb up to the 2nd floor, but not enough to go to the 3rd top floor, which I was a bit unhappy about, but the views are still amazing at the second floor.

The final stop is the Notre Dame Cathedral. Although I wasn't too interested in the cathedral, some background information about the cathedrals in Paris piqued my interest and really got to see the cathedral for what it was.
