This tour was great! Our guide was wonderful, and the lunch at the Eiffel Tower was great!
Just amazing. No words can describe how complete this tour is. The well presented and thoroughly educated walk through the Louvre, beautiful river cruise, Eiffel Tour visit (including a never to forget lunch on the first floor), finishing with a tour of the Notre Dame! First class experience!
If you have only one day to see Paris, you can't go wrong with this tour. I added up all the hours we would have been standing in lines at the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower and well..we'd still be in line. With this tour we bypassed all the lines, got to see a few highlights at the Louvre, eat lunch in the Eiffel Tower, and tour the cathedral at Notre Dame. Without the expertise in getting around, we would have been hard pressed to see more than one thing. The tour guides were also very knowledgeable and informative, and interacted quite well in English.
A tour is rated by the performance of the guide and ours was excellent. The two canal rides were an ideal way to move between sites.
These were all very professional done tours. We had an excellent guide. You must understand the limitations of what you can see at each stop. Having said that, we were shown quite a bit, and could not imagine seeing and learning half as much on our own.
Great experience for a one day trip to Paris. Looking forward to coming back!
Great overall view of Paris if you are new to the City and have limited time. Notre Dame, the Louvre and getting to see the Eiffel Tower are great places to see. The guide was great. Unfortunately there was a last minute wildcat strike so we did not get to eat lunch as expected in the Eiffel Tower. The guide made a last minute substitution to a restaurant on the Seine river. The restaurant manager was very kurt and put out. ( through no fault of the guide) he put us in a corner of the restaurant were there was no service. After 15-20 minutes, I figured out what he did, I notified the guide and she did her best to rectify the problem.
Our day in Versailles and Giverny was also cancelled at the last minute due to a wildcat strike. Another disappointment . The striking workers need to realize that this practice during peak travel times will deter people from coming back to Paris. We will not be coming back to Paris anytime soon.(perhaps the REAL reason for the strike was because the World Cup soccer game was being played)
My advice for other travelers is to have a plan "B" even though you may have booked and paid for a day tour 6 months prior. Beware of wildcat strikes in Paris.
It was great! We saw all the typical tourist-y things we wanted to! Our guide was very knowledgeable, and told us a lot of back story on each place we visited. Lunch on the Eiffel Tower was delicious......Notre Dame was gorgeous! Overall, a great choice!
An interesting tour through the Louvre (art seen : Venus de Milo , La Joconde,...) then you take the batobus (very enjoyable) to the Eiffel tower where you eat at 58 Eiffel Restaurant (food was very good but the service and seating not much) . After the lunch we had free time so went to the 2nd floor (3rd floor needed more time so we avoided the queues) - once done it took around 30 minutes to be able to go down. Both Louvre and Eiffel tower had skip the line and that was great. After the Eiffel tower we took again the batobus to the Notre Dame Cathedral which is our last stop and also was very enjoyable . Overall Great tour and highly recommended.
I had a lot of fun on this your the guides were excellent. I recommend this tour for first time tourists!!
Guide should have pointed out the buildings of interest during the river travel
