Wonderful tour - only wish the weather would have cooperated with us a bit more. The Louvre was exciting to see - unbelievable art! It was fun to eat lunch at the Eiffel Tower and the food was good. You will not have time to go to the top of the tower so make sure you find time to do that on your own. The ride down the Seinne was fun - able to stand at the back of the boat and take awesome photos along the way. Notre Dame was a sight to see! There was a mass going on while we were there so the smell of incense the singing of the choir just gave me chills. Guide was very informative - we totally enjoyed.

I loved this tour! Great way to see the city if you have short time in Paris! Our guide was great! You get to go in to the Louvre, which I wish we would have spend a little more time there, then we took a shuttle boat over to the Eiffle Tower where we had lunch. I got the herb chicken and it was great! Then you got some free time to either climb the tower or wander around. You then take the shuttle boat over to Notre Dame where the tour ends. Nice way to enjoy the city. I definitely recommend this.
