I wish this had 5 stars. It was definitely the highlight of our trip to Paris. Be sure not to miss the 3-hour night tour...magical. We felt like celebrities in our classic 1968 Citroen! We got "thumbs up" and smiles by most of the Parisians all night long! Also, our driver/guide could not have been more charming and accommodating.
This was a very special experience. In the three hours we saw all the sights of Paris in our little Green CV. This was better than any coach tour!!!
The whole night was a hit! The drivers were great fun and certainly added to the overall pleasure - nothing was too much trouble for them. We were able to stop for photos on request. We thoroughly recommend it as a great fun way to see the sights of Paris.
It was absolutely perfect until one of the Citroens broke down and we had to push it up the hill, though that did make for some great pictures and funny stories. A wonderful way to see and be seen in Paris.
From the moment our red 2 CV arrived promptly at our hotel we were transported into another world. Our driver made the whole evening fun, took us on a non-touristy route and we saw things we had never seen in all our visits to Paris. He was very knowledgeable and took great care to see that everything was comfortable for us. We thought the tour a little expensive but after the experience we were glad to have paid every penny and also to give the chauffeur a tip. We were glad to have selected the evening tour as one could imagine daytime being a bit noisy and a bit polluted. In the evening one sees the illuminations of the shops and buildings and it is so romantic. The car is immaculate, one gets the history of its manufacture, and the red velvet seat covers were a nice finishing touch. Highly recommended to young and old and something we will do again perhaps next year. A great experience and the hotel pick up and drop off was appreciated.
This tour was fantastic. It was private, just the two of us snuggled up in the back of this classic car, with a nice blanket provided by the driver. We felt completely luxuriated while the tour guide took us all through Paris, answering questions, stopping for photo ops, and giving us the skinny on what to do with our time in Paris. The rain came and went during our tour, as did the convertible top on the vehicle, but our spirits didn't. It was the best way to see Paris. The car attracted a lot of onlookers too! Or was it the sight of two awe-struck Americans in Paris?
This tour was amazing! The company and driver want out of there way to accommodate my needs. The sitesand views were awesome, but would have liked to stop a little longer at spots and gotten out of the car...
Fun way to see Paris. Our driver, Antoine was very pleasant and took us to all the places we wanted to see. My only complaint is that we had to change our tour (towards the end) because he was running out of gas. For what this excursion cost, gas should not be my problem...
It was a great way to see Paris. There are many ways to see Paris but this way is one of the most unique ways to experience it. I did it at night, 10pm, to see Paris lit up, the highlight being the Eiffel Tower from Trocadero. The driver was friendly and easy going. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to experience something different, something out of the ordinary.
Would have seen the same on a hop on bus, but concept is different. Should be half the price though.
I love the old CV, We went to Montmartre which was great. Our Frence driver with his broken English was very knowledgable and very polite.
This was a great experience - Gabrielle was a super guide - cute, polite, a good driver! Loved being able to go where the big buses cannot! Even having to push start the car gave us something to talk/laugh about! Was well worth the money.
The guide was a parisian so had a good knowledge of the sights. It was a treat not having to get on and off of a bus tour and having a hotel pick up was great! The only downside was that you don't have the time to get out and explore. However, we did stop quickly for the odd photo! Its definitely a good introduction to Paris, especially if you don't have much time.
Apart from being slightly late at my hotel pick up, this was a thoroughly enjoying tour. The convenience at the end to be dropped of at a location of choice was ideal. The driver was friendly and knowledgeable and the experience in the car was great.
Antoinette, our driver and guide, was a delight! It was the perfect tour to do on Day One as it gave us an understanding of where the major attractions were located, and plus we actually got to see them straight away. The car was an attraction in itself and received many admiring glances as we drove through city streets. A great introduction to Paris!
Great fun - it was my husband's birthday and we both love the 2CVs. The driver was a little sick and so wasn't very happy, but we saw all the sights lit at night and would do it again.
This tour is a great thing to do when you are in Paris for only 2 full days. Make sure to book it at the beginning of your stay, so that after this tour you can explore in more detail the sights you liked the most.
We had so much fun with our guide. It was great to be able to stop and take photos and drive some of the smaller streets and neighborhoods that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. The car is very fun and just perfect for two people. My only suggestion for improvement is to have the drivers know more about the sights we saw. Basics such as year built, previous use, current use and maybe a little known fact or two. We will tell all our traveling friends about the Viator tours.
The ride was fun the driver told us he had a cold and was tired didn't tell us much about the stuff we were seeing unless we asked
Unfortunately it was raining so we had to keep the top up most of the time. However the guide was very nice, knowledgable, and drove us to a couple sights just off the route that we asked to see. Despite the rain was a cool experience.
Our tour guide was sick, so I don't know if that made the experience less exciting. It was good to see the city, but now having done the tour, I wouldn't recommend it as a "must do" for anyone. It was pricey for the value we received.
I picked a bad time of the day, it was 1pm and there was a great deal of traffic. The car is very very small and my husband and son are very tall. They were squished in like sardines so if you are tall, I wouldn't recommend this tour. They also got a lot of wind and it was chilly so they didn't enjoy the tour. I thought it was okay, but we paid way too much for the experience. Our guide was somewhat knowledgeable, but driving that car through traffic and having to talk to us with the noisy wind wasn't optimal. I would save your money and take the tour bus instead.
This would have been a great way to see this wonderful city had it not been winter and raining. Because of the uniqueness of this vehicle, sightseeing in the rain didn't really work. However, the young driver was very knowledgeable and we still enjoyed the experience.
