Our guide was great. Can't remember her name, but she's from the UK. Note that there are no elevators to take you up to the top of the tower, so make sure you can climb the 300+ steps! It's so worth it at the end, though :)

Nico was a very well informed amusing young man and his walk around the area of Ile de late Cite was full of interesting facts. We were turned away to the back of the queue for entrance to Notre Dame itself which was a bit disconcerting however it moved very quickly. I did not take advantage of the trip up the tower as I suffer from vertigo! Well worthwhile doing though!

Excellent tour, the guide was very knowlegable and interesting. Hardest part was finding the starting place at the Cite Metro entrance.

Loved the tour and history snipets that personalised it. I did it specifically to take a particular photo of the gargoyles overlooking the Paris skyline and the Eiffel Tour which I got. Amazing views and the essence of Paris.

Our guide was an American who is married to a French man so was easy to understand. The tour included a lot of history told as interesting short stories. We did skip a several hour line to climb up to the tour. The climb is one way up a stone spiral staircase in which the steps are carved down in the middle from the millions of people in the past making their way to the top. Being in shape made the climb doable but our calves were tight the next couple of days. Definitely well worth it. The view from the top was amazing and I love the gargoyles and grotesques as well as the huge bell. The guide also recommended a great restaurant which was excellent. A must do if physically able.

Did not make the Tour. We became confused and did not find the meeting place. It was definitely our mistake. We did, however, rebook a Lourve Tour two (2) days later which was spectacular. Damian (the guide) went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we received a wonderful and well conducted tour. The star rating reflects the Louvre tour and not the Notre Dame Tour

So much more entertaining than I imagined. Small group of 5. Walk straight past the public line and in! no waiting. Great guides.

This was a great walking tour and the view from the top of Notre Dame Cathedral was breath-taking (literally - after all the steps)! Our guide (Macy) was a great source of interesting and entertaining information about Ile de la Cite and Notre Dame Cathedral. Definitely recommended but wear comfortable shoes and get in shape to make that climb - It is worth it!
