Excellent tour. Really enjoyable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Myself and my 15 year old son went on this tour, joined by about 8 other tourists from England and America who were all delightful people too. The American family on our tour had 10 year old triplets with them, who were not only lovely children, but they enjoyed every bit of the trip too and they asked lots of interesting questions, which made it even more interesting for all of us! Anyone would enjoy this tour and you MUST book this skip the line tour and not queue up in hope, else you cold wait hours!

Our guide Victoria, was Parisien and she spoke perfect English and she had time for everyone, we cannot thank her enough for her knowledge and patience and friendliness throughout, she was a perfect tour guide. PLEASE DO book this tour - it is worth every penny and is an amazingly interesting thing to do, even if think you might be a bit squeamish - you probably won't be, as it is a historical and respectful place to be and you will be in awe and admiration of the workers who built this/worked on this. Do book it now! you wont be sorry you did!
