This was the first tour of our ten day stay in Paris and it was marvelous. We had a small group and Stephan was our guide and host. We loved learning about and sampling the various breads, cheeses, pastries and meats during our walking tour of the Latin Quarter. Stephan shared the history of the area including the background of the Pantheon and the church of St. Etienne. We ended with a stop at a local small eatery where we sampled a number of cheeses and meats including foie gras and of course wine! A wonderful way to begin our stay in Paris. We definitely recommend this tour!

My wife and I truly enjoyed this tour, especially since we only had two days in Paris. Astrid was our personal guide and was outgoing, upbeat and very knowledgeable. We saw just about everything we wished to and at an unhurried pace. It was a full day for all of us. We would definitely recommend this tour and if you're lucky, to have Astrid guide. She saw us through town and revealed some memorable hidden gems here and there.

This was a wonderful experience and our guide, Charlie, has ruined us as far as tour guides go. He was so knowledgeable and personable that the day just flew by and was a complete joy. He not only had all the facts and statistics but also had anecdotal stories that just made everything all the more interesting, even if war/military history isn't your thing. Charlie, we should have gotten your number so that next time we're in Paris, you could show us around. You were so personable and knowledgeable, we appreciated it so much...and easy on the eyes to boot! We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Normandy and would recommend this day trip for anyone - the military and history buffs or even those just looking to see a bit of French countryside, the beaches were beautiful.
My family and I loved this trip. It was our first Paris experience for a relaxing start. Our meal was delicious. I wish I knew our waiter's name as he was friendly, funny, and allowed us to take our leftovers with us. We purchased the cheapest meal and seating area. We were able to see the sights just fine and our food was great. I would love to do this activity again in the future.
Outstanding way to finish our time in Paris, on a beautiful evening on the deck of a lovely ship sipping champaign as we floated past all the illuminated sights on the Seine! Enjoyed our amazing guide and the tour of the Eiffle as well.
always a good idea to have a guide to point out the important pieces instead of getting lost amongst the thousands of works - this has worked for me several times in the past, but this might be an exception...
The museum is huge so you'll need a good half day or if you can the whole day. It's fascinating everywhere you go. Our guide was English speaking but she was quite chaotic in her delivery of knowledge and she couldn't answer several basic questions it felt disappointing to pay for a guide whom you expect to have the knowledge about their tour. It seemed like a very hurried tour. After it ended, I had my own guide book on the museum so I followed some of the info in that to browse other pieces. This seemed more enjoyable and definitely more relaxed. However i would have gained alot more from the museum's own audioguide where i would have seen many more pieces and done it at my own pace.
Being a Bank Holiday weekend in England I assumed there would be queues - there were none wherever I went in Paris that weekend! No need to skip the line...
I'm being a little harsh in this review because I'm comparing it to a Viator tour in Amsterdam of the Rijksmuseum and van Gogh museum - 2 hugely important museums but so well organised and we didn't feel rushed or that we didn't see enough...
But all in all, I suppose if you're short on time this is a good tour to get a small insight into the significant basics but if you're a keen museum enthusiast like me, avoid the high fees, make your own way around and spend a good few hours at your leisure.
This show is a must see when you are in Paris its stylish, sophisticated and a bit daring I am from the UK after all. The whole audience was mesmerised by the show. The set and costumes were glamorous and the stag area was used to its fullest didnt think there was enough room for an ice rink but you live and learn.
We booked the show and Champagne package. We were seated promptly and our champagne was brought to us.
The venue photographer took some great pics of us to remember the evening. All the seating seems to give you a great view of the stage.
As i ve said a must see its not the cheapest night out but some times its about the experience not the price.
Great show, dress up, it pays off. I booked the 9pm show, no dinner, but includes half a bottle of champagne per person. I arrived at 7:50 wearing a sports jacket and my wife in a dress. They let us into a waiting area with about 12 very casually dressed people. they had us stand in a separate line, a few other dressed well were escorted to stand by us. at 8pm they let us in and seated us first. They assign the tables. They want you well dressed. The show started at 9pm but was preceeded with a singer and band playing well know songs of the past. The show lasted about 1hr 50 min. This was my first time in paris and I wanted to go to a well know location, this is it.

Great way to see all the attractions and the 4 routes give you a good sense of orientation of where you are in Paris!
I highly recommend this tour if you're trying to get to Mont St-Michel from Paris. It's a 5-hour trip each way, and there's no mass transit other than buses because it's so remote. Our bus driver made stops about halfway through each way, at a very nice rest stop type area where there were plenty of restrooms and lots of choices for drinks and food. Along the way, the guides that were with the tour gave us some history of the site.
Once at the bus parking area, a tram was available to take us to the main entrance. Some of those on the bus were taking the guided tour, but we were signed up only for the independent tour, and honestly, I feel like we got to see more at a more leisurely pace. I'm sure the guide offered some interesting tidbits and history, but I did my own research online before we went so we could explore at our own pace, and by doing so, we didn't waste time at the lunch that was scheduled for the tour group. We had plenty of time to see it all and we didn't feel rushed. I had time to walk the ramparts and look for photo ops, while my husband had a cold beer.
I highly recommend that you walk quickly past the numerous stores and street vendors at the bottom of the hill and head straight for the Abbey at the top. The crowds at the top get very overwhelming late in the afternoon, and you won't be able to see nearly as much. After you see the Abbey, you can then take a leisurely stroll back down, enjoying the sights as you go. Do take time to notice how quickly the tide rushes in around the island.
This company was higly organized, professional, and on time. Much better than several others that we worked with in our 3-week European vacation. I highly recommend them and this tour.
Everything covered in one day. If you don't have allot of time in Paris this is the trip for you.

WOW! The tour guide Charlie was fantastic. A young history enthusiast. We stoped at Utah beach, Omaha Beach and the cemetery where my uncle was buried. If you have a loved one there, look up their marker location before you go. It will save time! Cider tasting was plentiful. Stories and sights were magnificent and touching. Pointe du Hoc was amazing and sad, with blown out bunkers all over the place and craters stretched as far as you can see. Ability to walk around all the bunkers and craters. Long drive from Paris with breaks at the gas station/truck stop for food, etc.
This was a really convenient option for us to get around town to see everything! We only had 2 days in Paris and wanted to squeeze in as much as possible. Sometimes the buses were NOT every 10-15 minutes, but overall, we highly recommend it!!

I had booked the 11pm show but my partner was happy about that. It meant us being out in Paris in the small hours and the Metro would have stopped running - two retired 60 somethings knocking about and quite unsure how to get back to St Michel Notre Dame. There was no problem at all for Viator to change it for us. I checked first of all to see if there were places at the 9pm show. Called up Viator and they charged only 5 to move the booking. We went there at the allotted time to be shown to our seats straight away and given a bottle of champagne to share no queing Then the show began. It was amazing! All those beautiful Doris Dancers and Men were unbelievaby entertaining and the costumes were gorgeous. It was a variety show - Feerie. Something for everyone. A ventriloquist with a real little dog, half a dozen minature ponies and a perspex tank coming up from the stage with boa constrictors swimming in the water in the Medusa part. The lead dancer went in the water with them and then as she came out held one of them up above her head. None of the animal acts were very long, it was clear that they had their welfare in mind. There was also a brilliant couple who were on roller skates on a 2m round platform. Very skillful. We were delighted with the whole of the show. It was worth every penny cent. Book with Viator and you will pay a lot less than if you were to just walk in. Also everything is pre paid so that you have not got the worry about settling up whilst there. Thank you very much it was wonderful.

One of the best tours I've done in Paris. Lots of opportunity to taste sensational pastries and chocolates as you amble along picturesque streets from one food place to another. I appreciated being introduced to some of the famous names in chocolate and pastry and bread making, and trying some treats that were quite new. My advice: have a VERY small breakfast before you take this tour, so you have room to indulge !
