Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Summit Priority Access Ticket with Host
Excellent Eiffel Tower experience
, Jan 2020
We very much enjoyed our priority access Eiffel Tower tour. Our tickets expedited our entry & assured us the quickest access possible to the summit. Adrielle was a helpul & friendly guide who shared with us thistorical info. & ably assisted us with access. She also gladly answered questions. The location for meeting the guide is very convenient & a mere 2-3 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower. The office efficiently checked us in & got us on our way to the Eiffel Tower. We would do it this way again.
Only as fast track to the 2nd floor. Had to wait in line to get to top. The champagne and macarroon "special" was more expensive to buy from the company then it was to buy directly there. Totally not worth that part.
Bypass the long lines at the Eiffel Tower with this tour that includes summit access. After fast track, skip-the-line access, proceed to the second level to survey the city from the viewing platforms while listening to commentary about Paris culture, traditions, and history. Then, proceed to the summit to see Gustave Eiffel's private apartments and sip Champagne from the onsite bar (own expense).
Wonderful tour with a highly knowledgeable guide - David! We were, unfortunately, very limited in our time in Paris, so it was important to us to have a guide who could get us into the museum quickly and take us to see some of the pieces we considered highlights. David was perfect for the job. He knows a lot about the museum, the art and history. In addition, David took many photos and educated us on how to get the best lighting and angles of the art we photographed. Wonderful afternoon!
We had a wonderful private tour of the Louvre. Christophe, our guide, did an outstanding job. He is not only very knowledgeable about the museum, he also has an excellent way of explaining it. We needed wheelchair assistance for one of our group and he did a great job of arranging that and guiding us around the building.
Maximize your time at the Louvre with skip-the-line entrance and a private guided tour for you and your party. Take all the hassle out of exploring the world’s largest museum, as your guide whisks you to star attractions like the ‘Mona Lisa’, ‘Raft of the Medusa’ and ‘Venus de Milo’, and points out lesser-known gems among the vast exhibitions. Best of all: your private tour can be tailored to your preferences and you can stay at the museum as long as you like after the tour ends.
Maarten (sorry if I got the name wrong!) was amazing. He gave a great insight into the history of the tour around the Eiffel Tower and all the surrounding landmarks. At the end of the tour (ours was the last in the day), we spent a bit more time with him just talking in general about our experiences in Paris and he was extremely helpful in advising us about our trip and what we can do whilst in Paris.
The tour was great as well as we skipped the line and we had clear instructions regarding what the plan was and what we needed to do. I do advise all people who book to read the small prints on everything they provide as you need to arrive 15-30minutes before your tour start time to a location 5 minutes away from the Eiffel Tower.
Save time with this Viator skip-the-line Eiffel Tower ticket. This priority access admission ticket allows for a relaxing visit to one of the world’s busiest monuments, accompanied by a host. Listen as your host adds colorful history and facts to the sights below as you look over Les Invalides, Notre Dame Cathedral, and other city landmarks.
Loire Valley Castles Tour from Paris: Chambord, Chenonceau with Lunch & Wine
Great daytrip for Couples
, Jan 2020
My partner and I had a great time on the castle/wine tour. Our tour visited the impressive Chambord and Chenonceau castles while stopping for lunch and wine tasting at a lovely family owned castle in-between. Plenty of wine to be had through the trip and the food was lovely. We had Michelle as our tour guide and she was great! Super knowledgeable about French history and told us many interesting stories about the region. She also spent time after the tour answering everyones general questions about Paris. So helpful!
Fantastic tour of the Loire chateaux and superb lunch at chateau Nitray winery. Thank you Paris City Wonders for a great day. And our guide, Michelle, was wonderful. Couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. Do yourself a favour when you are Paris and book this tour.
Overall we enjoyed the tour, however, we got a little lost trying to get to the pick-up point and were scolded when we arrived late. Thank goodness the bus driver saw us! One of the tour guides took advantage of the wine tasting too much. I enjoyed the history lessons.

It’s historical and culturally how a king’s living style as money is not a concern. Despite the rain there’s no lacking of American tourists. Our guide is okay. Maybe anxious to share her knowledge; talking more than we can absorb.
Great tour led by Manny! Only issue was waiting in the rain for the Skip-the-Line tickets, but I believe it was due to the fault of the palace staff. Manny was excellent and would definitely recommend this tour to others!

We had an amazing day in Paris with our tour guide Marc. Our family of me, my husband, our 16 yr old b/g twins, 12 yr old boy and my mother in law all had an amazing experience. Marc was totally amenable to switching things up and making it our day yet had so much to share wherever we went. Definitively recommend this tour and our guide!
We were visiting my son in Antwerp Brussels. Wanted to do a day trip. Chose Paris, a 2 hour train ride. We received great communication about when and where to meet our guide and contact info. When we missed our connecting train they quickly amended our meeting time. Sarah met us at the train station as we exited the platform. The car and driver were across the street. Sarah explained they itinerary for the day and was very flexible. We saw all the highlight spots and had a great lunch. During lunch we decided what else we wanted to see and do and Sarah made it happen. We stopped at a market for bread cheese and wine so we would have dinner when we got home. We ended a few blocks from the train station so we could have pastries and coffee to end our day. It was really perfect. It was worth every penny. We only had one day and we couldn’t have seen anything more. Sarah was amazing.

Our tour guide found us at the meeting point and was very friendly. She took us to parts of the Louvre we had not seen and would not have found. My daughter and I were equipped with earpieces so we could hear our guide whilst walking - we could walk and talk. We visited the ruins, greek statues, paintings and the drawing rooms of the French Kings and Queens that had lived in the palace. It was all so informative and interesting. And yes, we saw the Mona Lisa with a fresh mind and new ideas.
We ended up having a private tour! The Louvre is so large and overwhelming, so it was great to have a guide who could organize the exhibits for us to essentially travel through time. The tour focused not only on the artwork, but on the building's history and the history of Paris as well. After our "2-hr introduction," we were left to explore the Louvre on our own, which was nice to be able to visit areas that we did not see during the tour.
My only disappointment is that two of the exhibits that I really wanted to see were closed for refurbishment.

London Day Trip from Paris by train including Hop on Hop off Tour
, Nov 2019
Our experience on the Eurostar was great and we were able to meet our guide as soon as we got off the train. The hop on hop off was a bit confusing and it wasn’t explained to us that well. Overall, it was an average experience with the bus tour.
My wife and I spent a week in Paris. We took the Day Trip to London. We had a phenomenal day. We took the river cruise down the Thames, ate lunch at Westminister grill, did the Hop on and Off bus seeing all the sights and finished off a great day with afternoon tea. The Viator staff was difficult to find upon departure and we never did find the staff when we arrived in London. We were a bit lost but figured it out. We had a two hour delay returning to Paris due to a death on the tracks. Very sad! We loved this experience and highly recommend it. Buckingham Palace was one of our favorite sights.

Really great experience with this tour and the guide. Meet up was very easy at main entrance to the Architecture Museum at the Palais de Chaillot and the guide was there early and easy to find right outside the building. The audio headsets made it very easy to hear the guide and to follow along as he gave the history of the Eiffel Tower and a bit of Paris as well. Highly recommend this guided tour and taking the steps back down to the base of the tower.
