The guide was unhurried. Took us through side streets and explained the history of people who lived there. Knowledge of the Opera was wonderful.

The tour was okay but be careful you are not short changed!. Our guide only led the tour for 2 hours and did not take us to the view from Galleries Lafeytte she bascially could not be bothered as we were only a small group of 10. Also note your language may be french and english

I've been to Paris a few times before but had never seen the covered walkways behind the Palais Royal nor the Opera Garnier. This building is absolutely magnificent, taking my breath away! It made me decide to watch the opera that same evening because even though I'm not a fan of people taking at least 3 songs to die, I figure this had to be the venue worth watching one.

Very special thanks to Helene for putting a lot of heart as our tour guide, pointing out Garnier's genius in the design and engineering of his masterpiece. Seeing all of Paris from a rooftop was the best way to end the afternoon and the Opera Garnier was definitely the highlight of my trip!

Amazingly interesting tour. The Opera is just beautiful. I thought this would be a bit daggy but its actually one of the most enjoyable tours weve ever done in Paris. Absolutely recommend this tour - just remember to take photo ID or the site are very reticent to issue you the headset

Went on my Birthday. Opera amazing everywhere. Passages were just like an Arcade. Rooftop view interesting on LaFayette building.
Good exercise!

This tour was good. The group was all French speaking except my husband and I so she skimped on the English translation. She took us to the Lafeyette dept store toward the end of the tour and promptly lost us. She gave one set of directions and never repeated them. We had to go back to our meeting place to return the whisper machines which was out of the way from our hotel

The Palais Royal portion of the tour was a great way to see some of the shopping streets of Paris, while walking at a leisurely pace. The Opera Garnier is a wonder all its own!
