Only Got Half Of A Tour

Unfortunately, we were not able to see the actual auditorium because there was a last-minute rehearsal. Since this was what we came for, it was disappointing, but not the fault of the tour guide. It was nice to see the rest of the Opera without lots of tourists, so I would recommend this after-hours tour, but make sure you are able to see it all.
Magnificent!

If you are in Paris this is a not t be missed tour. It is done after hours and the building is empty. Lots of stories and information about the opera house and some of the myths and legends of the building.
You shouldn’t miss it.

The opera Garnier inside is spectacular, the guide was entertaining, very knowledgeable of the history of France and also the construction of the magnificent building. His exhibition was very detailed throughout the tour and pleased one of the members of the group that was interested in knowing the history of the opera ghost. Unfortunately, I do not remember his name, but I would like to acknowledge his work, he attended group C on Saturday, September 22 at 5:00 p.m.

I booked this tour so that I could have photos of the opera without people in them. Instead there was a modern dance company rehearsing on the grand stairs and in some of the halls. We were on a tour with 30 people so it was hard to hear our tour guide. To make things worse our guide kept getting shushed by the dance company. We couldnt get close to the grand staircase or some other main areas of the opera. Our guide was grasping for places to take us and so were the other guides. We all just kept running into each other. I requested a redo of this tour which would basically cost the company very little and would leave me very happy but I received a flat no. I think it was very greedy of the tour company to have tours on a day when parts of the main area of the opera are closed.

A must for Phantom of the Opera fans or lovers of art. This opera house was exquisite and seeing the box reserved for the phantom was a unexpected treat. The guide was very informative and we just loved the history of this building.

Absolutely beautiful! As a Phantom of the Opera fan this was one of the highlights for my trip. It seemed as though we had the whole Opera house to ourselves. Martin our guide showed us the Phantom's reserved balcony and even allowed us entrance to see it. What an amazing experience and the pictures I took were fantastic!! Thanks Martin for an unforgettable experience.

Excellent tour and quite thorough. Just give a heads-up about the need to exchange voucher for ticket at the entrance. Also make clear that the entrance is around the front of the building to the left and then way in the back.
