This was a great experience for someone experiencing Paris, France for the first time. We met the tour guide exactly where the directions told us where we would meet. Our tour guide, Sarah, was awesome and well versed in French and American culture. She was extremely personable, funny and willing to answer questions. She gave us some time to explore the 2nd floor of the eiffel tower on our own and then brought us back together to talk about Paris history buildings we could see from the 2nd floor and The Eiffel Tower and its history. After that we got in line to go to the summit and see the top. On the way down you could stop on the 1st floor if you wished. There is free ice skating on the first floor, shops on both the first and second floors, and restaurants highly recommended but you need reservations for the restaurants. After that we hopped on a BIGBUS highly recommended as well and went to the Louvre. The Louvre entrance is through the glass pyramid, once inside, they check your ticket at the entrance of the wing you want to enter it is huge. If you opt for an audio tour separate from this ticket, you will need to purchase a ticket at the ticket counter prior to going to the wing where you pick up the actual device - we did not do this and opted not to go back and get the ticket and I regretted it because all of the plaques with information about the art is in French. This is a huge museum so plan to spend some time there. After that we headed back to the Eiffel tower where we hopped on the Cruise. We got on the cruise at 18:00/6:00 pm and it was perfect. When we left it was dusk and the lights began coming on in the city, as we passed Notre Dame, the bells were ringing and when we returned to the dock, the Eiffel Tower lights were on and began twinkling. I highly recommend cruising at night. The cruise is not really informational, just really fun to see the city from this perspective. We did this all in one day 10:30 tour of the Eiffel Tower, lunch, Louvre, and then River Tour but it is designed to be done at your leisure. You can use the Louvre ticket and River tour tickets whenever you want.
Tour guide was extremely pleasant and funny. Very knowledgeable about not just the tower, but surrounding landmarks that you can view from the 2nd level. The skip-the-line is absolutely worth it's weight in GOLD to get into the Louvre in a fraction of the time as others that would have waited at least an hour or more. The river cruise is very nice as well, though does not go all the way as other cruises the company offers.
Our tour guide was excellent and spoke very clear English!
Saved a ton of time using Viator to get in and get a tour.
The guide was very informative and on time. Great way to get to and from Versailles rather than just taking a train.
Highly informative and very convenient to be on the special private tour.
Awesome Experience!! Highly Recommend it!
The tour guide was funny, but you can go off on your own if you want to once you reach the second floor skip the line is a must as the queues without are ridiculously long. The views are incredible and booking to go to the summit is a must!
Excellent tour. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and provided each of us with equal attention.
It was also great that the weather cooperated so we had clear skies and lots of sunlight.
The only issue is finding the meeting point, so give yourself enough time to follow the instructions.
I was in Germany and decieded last minute to go to Paris to spend the day. I didn't want to spend my time in a long line. I booked a tour with Viator. The best thing I could have Ever done!!! My tour guide was knowledgeable
and nice. We passed all lines. Went to the summit... had enough time to head back to the main train station and have lunch! Excellent !
When I tried to take this tour a little over a year ago, there was a strike that day that prevented us from going. I was thrilled to see I was going to have the same amazing tour guide this time as I had previously. The drive from Paris is very quick and you are able to get inside before many of the other tourists. You get to see some lovely rooms in the palace, then return out back to walk the gardens. Lunch was delicious at the restaurant, and then looking at the smaller palace and the nearby village was fun and interesting. Lots of walking on this tour, but most definitely worth it.
Great tour, nice not to have queue on the way up, it's very busy and not really suitable for young children. Great views and photos to be had. Coming down is very busy and you have to join the queues but it very orderly. I was looking forward to a glass of champers at the top but that was a bit of a let down, plastic glasses and over priced. But I would do this trip again.
Our guide was fabulous!!! She had so much personal information about many different places in Versailles. There is so much to look at and to learn about it's a bit overwhelming. We had our 3 older children with us. It's a great tour, worth every penny!
Our guide was great!!
Guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Kathleen is an excellent guide! Saw all of prime importance and very satisfied.
tour guide very very friendly and knowledgable about the art pieces and got us in and out in a reasonable amount of time and still felt
I saw everything I was supposed to. Highly recommend
I loved this tour, so much I recommended this to all my friends and family. The local guide was amazing, the driver brilliant and the overall service could not have been higher.
However, and it is a big however, I will never use Viator again after today and I will be advising everyone to use other tour operators. Having booked a different tour in October 2016 for February 2017 and planning a whole long weekend around it, including flights and Hotels, we found out from the local operator not Viator itself that the tour wasn't running. I had to call America as my request for them to call me did not receive a response, I receive no form of apology, no explanation, the only alternative offered was after I asked if they could help and I was offered a different tour for almost twice the price. Needless to say, I declined and I will now be as vocal about avoiding Viator as I was pro them until today. Furious.
