The Paris Pass office was great with helping us find the office and get the passes for our trip. This is a MUST if you are going to be in Paris for more then a day and want to get around Paris on the public transportation. IF you think you can get around Paris by car and/or find parking - forget it! The museum entry card got us into the museums fast and around the crowds!
The tour was EXCEPTIONAL in every way. My wife loves history. Our guide Chris was excellent - very relational and answered every question my wife had. After the tour, we felt we had learned a lot, had a great time and had a new friend in Chris. Highly recommend.
We had an excellent tour guide who showed us many things that we would never have seen. Highly recommend it!
Good value for money if you can cram in as much as you can in the 2 days.
My biggest gripes were the amount of time we lost getting to the office to pick up the pass and then trying to get to the nearest hop on hop off stop, where we then needed to wait at least 30 more minutes to exchange our pass for a ticket. All in all we lost about 2 hours on our first day trying to get that all sorted.
We also still ended up lining up for almost an hour after the Louvre opened to get in, despite having a so called jump the queue pass. We spent about a quarter of the time in the Louvre we just wanted to see the Mona Lisa as we did lining up to get inside.
This pass is definitely worth buying as it gives entry into a large range of museums, random attractions and daily transport tickets. If you are in Paris more than 2 days this is one pass you should buy because of the overall value for money.
The Paris Pass is not a bargain, but, it is a great option. It is very complete, and especially for first time visitors, very helpful. Almost all of the attractions and museums are well worth the time and effort to pack them into 4 or 6 days. The Louvre alone could take all the time available.
The book that was provided with the tour booking is disappointing. Although it describes the sights of Paris it does not suggest which stop to get off to see the sights. There are few stops and the stops are hard to find particularly early in the tour but even late on the tour unless you get back on the bus where you got off finding the stops is difficult.
The tour was spectacular and was the highpoint of my trip! The tour with Francesca was absolutely fantastic! She was by far the best guide I have had the pleasure to spend time with. Her warm, endearing personality and depth of knowledge about French history and local insights for each of the sites was outstanding beyond compare. If you choose this tour, I would highly recommend that you request Francesca to be your guide. It was a complete joy to share this time with her.
I liked using the pass. My complaint, though, is that when we arrived in Paris, it was already 315pm and the place to pick up our 3 day pass closes at 3pm, so we lost that day. The next day, it was difficult to find the location to pick it up. Would be nice if it were in a more central location.
Used it to do the hop on hop off bus tour in Paris. According to your website we could hop on any bus. However, when we tried to do that the bus driver told us that we had to go to the main office, redeem our pass, and catch the next bus. I have arthritis in my knees and was forced to walk another three blocks by this driver. When we got to the office the lady at the desk laughed about the bus driver telling us that until I told her that my knees were hurting and that it wasn't funny! Would recommend this tour for the sights seen but wouldn't recommend it if you are expecting courteous and friendly people.
For me, the issue is the location and trouble of getting to, the validation office. It is in a backstreet. I,Es from any of the hop on hop off bus stops. There has to be a major improvement in this aspect. The pass itself is OK if you were going to go to all those places - if not it is cheaper to buy a bus ticket and pay for entry where you want to go.
Pick-up is in a poor, out of the way, location and hard to find with poor signage. The street addresses make no sense and I had to ask a shop owner for help but was only 20-30 feet away. This is a joke! Why not near Notre Dame or the Louvre? I bought the 2 day pass with the included an upgrade to 3 days. However, we picked them up in mid-afternoon and were told to sign and date then. Do NOT do that unless you get them early in the morning. The Museum Pass portion turned out to be for 2 days only and at the Louvre we went on the third day. We got in as they were not looking closely but were turned away from one of the 3-4 internal galleries and could not see all of the exhibits. I question the value of this pass and you would really have to be able to get into several venues each day to make it worth while. It only gets you into the towers at Notre Dame and not into the Eiffel Tower at all. I would not purchase unless it was a four or six day pass and I really wanted to see all the places where it is accepted. The hop-on hop-off bus was good but the boat trip was pretty lame. All-in-all not worth the trouble finding the place nor the price. We were very disappointed as we have used Viator to book other things in Paris, Venice and Barcelona.
We were so incredibly lucky since my wife and I were the only ones on the tour! Gwen, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and fun. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone that is going to Paris and I would make sure to tell them to ask for Gwen if she is available.
Guide Manuela was excellent!!
