I enjoyed this tour immensely. Our guide was especially knowledgable and very friendly.
Different guides for each tour, but both were very knowledgeable, efficient and thoughtful. Our Notre Dame guide knew some unique history of the site. We would never have seen the best highlights of the Louvre in three plus hours without the guide who had interesting facts to share about each piece of art we viewed.
The tour guide was not dull at all. Was very informative, kept us eager to want to know more. Architect was AMAZING. We walked the grounds inside and out. I was more than impressed. I felt if you saw one Church, you saw them all-not in this case....aww inspiring, jaw dropping and the history, RICH.

Good tour, be sure to know where the meeting point is as it's a tad tricky, well it was for us. But once we got on our way the tour was very interesting.
Wonderful tour! Our guide was quite knowledgeable about Notre Dame and the area surrounding the cathedral. Unfortunately, due to the cold weather we were not able to go up to the tower, but it did not take away from the rest of the tour. Overall, we had a great time, and would recommend this tour to anyone.
This tour is fun...but as a heads up most of the tour is walking a couple blocks around the cathedral. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She helped us skip line to get up to the tower which is worth the walk up the stairs to see the Gargoyles. Once inside the three or four people directly next to the tour guide can hear her comments about the interior but the rest of the tour company can not because it is inside a church so they can't talk that loud for obvious reasons. As a result of this people start going off in their own direction. Its a shame because the tourguide was so knowledgeable about the cathedral itself but this tour is not really designed to highlight their knowledge...perhaps a headset and microphone system would work if you want advice as to how to improve the tour. Its a cool tour but I am not sure if everyone would like it for the reasons I have listed
Great experience! It ended up being a personal tour for my husband and I, so we got great personal attention, and loved that they did not cancel it for only 2. Tour guide was fantastic and very informative. We were not able to go up in the tower as it had snowed the night before, so they had it closed due to slippery conditions. Will just have to go back.ni had been to Notre Dame a few times before on my own, but it was well worth taking the tour for all that information you can't get on your own. Highly recommended.
Church is beautiful and the view from the tower is spectacular.
Our tour guide Charlie was outstanding. Best tour of the trip. We spent an 1-1/2 hours but could've spent another 2 or 3 hours easily.
Had amazing guide. Young fellow from England. So knowledgeable.
Kevin was an amazing guide. Well worth the extra 's to skip the line and get to the top of Notre Dame. Saint Chapelle is a GEM that I had never seen before and was BEAUTIFUL!
Excellent way to see this monument. The guide provided some great information (I and #39;m sorry that I forgot his name). Highly recommend this tour.
The tour guide was outstanding! The group,was prompt and easy to find. Very enjoyable experience.
How can you NOT be awed by the glory and splendor of Saint-Chapelle? It's absolutely fabulous. Beyond description. Breath-taking. And the gargoyles of Notre Dame were every bit as magnificent as I'd hoped! The only reason I'm not giving this tour 5 stars is that it was our guide's last tour of the season and his heart just didn't seem in it. This tour deserved more enthusiasm.
Our tour guide was excellent. I liked that we each had ear buds so everyone could hear no matter where you were standing. I enjoyed the view from the tower and seeing the bell. So much history!
Amazing experience, skipping the line for Notre Dame is a must!
Very excellent tour guide!!!!
I booked 3 tours on viator about a week before I left for Paris for my first visit there. This was the best decision I made for my trip! I was nervous to be booking tours where you just showed up at a defined location, but everything worked out absolutely perfectly.
This was a 2 hour tour given by an American named Hava spelling? who moved to France years ago. She gave us an overview of the island that these chapels are on. Then a history of Saint-Chapelle, with 30 minutes to explore it on our own. Following that, we walked over to Notre Dame, where we got more history. Then Hava escorted us to skip the line to head up to the towers. The line was over an hour, so this was very key! Then we were free to explore the towers as well as the ground floor of Notre-Dame on our own.
Hava was a fabulous tour guide. Her history/overviews were compelling, interesting, and insightful, and were the perfect amount of material. This made viewing the chapels much better than had we done it on our own without a guide.
I highly recommend this tour to all visiting Paris!
It was a great tour we climbed all the stairs and our guide was very knowledgeable.

Our guide Charlie was hands down the best guide anyone could ever ask for. Giving little bits of information no one knew to ask for. I wish he could be a guide on every tour I book from here on out. Notre Dame was incredible!
I visited Notre Dame a few years ago, considered it a beautiful church but had no special feelings about it. Now this tour has broadened my horizon and introduced to me the true beauty of Notre Dame. Avi, our tour guide, holds a history degree and does an excellent job in guiding us through all the intriguing history, culture and architectural features of this magnificent church as well as lle de la Cite. And yes, the skip-the-line access to the Notre Dame Tower is invaluable as there is always a long line at the entrance of the towerand it will only move a little every 15minutes or so. With this tour, I am able to go right up the tower and appreciate the world-famous stone monsters and gargoyles. The whole tour is extremely interesting and worth every penny you spend.
Oh wow! The history shared on this tour made it so much more interesting. Facts and tid-bits that you won't find in any travel book. I love both of these churches, and it was well worth the money paid.
Our tour guide was great! The skip the line is definitely worth getting.
Highly recommended. Our guide a history major gave us a very interesting history and anecdotes relating to the Notre Dame Cathedral and of Paris during the ages. The visit to the bell towers is a must. amazing views of he city and the cathedral itself. Be prepared to climb a steep narrow staircase. Skip if you have health issues.
