Fantastic trip. Thank you to our tour guide Sammie. Everything was as stated and organized. Lots of walking, but worth it. Sights, sounds, history and culture was incredible. Accommodations in Paris were modern and very comfortable. This was a perfect way to celebrate our 25th anniversary.

My sister and I both in our mid 70's took the two day tour to Paris and it was absolutely fantastic. The preparation of bookings and meeting at Railway Station was perfect. Our Tour Leader in Paris was fantastic. We had aa two day pass and really saw much of Paris. Value for our money, and will always recommend your Company. Thank you.

We had a great day with Charlotte. She was a great tour guide. It was a big group and she was very knowledgeable. We had a fun day and loved it. It's a lot to try to do in one day. It was pretty rushed but she did the best that she could with the time that she had to work with. We enjoyed the river cruise and the lunch at the Eiffel Tower. The Louvre just really needs to have a week to itself but she showed us some highlights and I enjoyed what she showed us. Loved Charlotte! She was a lot of fun.

Excellent !!! I'm glad picked the scorted 'cause we got the best tour guide ever: Samy from Evan Evans !!! He took care of us all the time, got us tickets to Eiffel Tour, and wen't to the second level in a few minutes, then lunch, boat tour on the River and Notre Dame. Hotel was excellent as well.

My 2 day rail trip to Paris was really great. Our guide did a phenomenal job getting into places easily and keeping us on the go all day. My only disappointment was not going onto the Eiffel Tower. The line was several hours long and we would have spent too much of our tour in line. My wife and I travelled to Versailles the second day and truly enjoyded the palace. We would not have been able to see all that we did on our own.

An excellent way to see Paris on a short time frame. Our guide "Sammi", was attentive to our needs, providing additional support for directions, accommodations, transportation, etc. The hotel for the overnight was good.

Very good tour. We were happy with how almost everything went. Sami was great as a tour leader. Things we were not happy with were minor and in the big picture, not terribly important. Tour went just as we anticipated when we booked, and made our Paris visit memorable.

This trip was with Evan Evan tours, it was strange because I was the only person who had booked the escorted tour. There was a couple who took the train in with me and did the louver and Notre Dam, but then we parted ways there. Not to say this was a bad experience, my guide, Sammy, was extremely nice and helped me when my bag broke to find another at a reasonable cost, he also helped me check into my hotel and was exceedingly pleasant. He helped me store my bags the first day so I wouldn't have to lug them around and the best part was the next day, which was unescorted, I ran into him the train station and he helped me find what I was looking for even though he had another group that day. All in all, I was not unhappy with the experience.

Our trip to Paris worked out well,good tour and guide.However,we were very disappointed with the hotel as it was very far from the station and we had to take a taxi which cost us 30 euros.The following morning.we again had to take a taxi back to the station to store our luggage so we could go on the hop-on,hop-off bus which was another 30 euros.When I phoned in advance to let the tour people know that we would be there,the man I spoke to told me that our luggage would be dropped off at the hotel before the tour started.Of course this wasn't possible and our tour guide told us that we had to store it at the station which cost us 10 euros on the 1st day and another 10 euros the 2nd day.Therefore between the 2 taxi rides at 30 euros each and the 2 storages at 10 euros each,we spent 80 euros which we had not planned on.
We also met 2 other women who had booked a 2-day Paris trip from London and their hotel was 2 blocks from the station,saving them taxi money.We also saw many hotels in the area around the station,so we didn`t know why we were so far away.If we had known all this,we wouldn`t have gone or we would have taken the 1-day tour which the other people in our group had done.

Guide was quite a character, but he made sure we could find our hotel and that we were picked up when promised to get back to Gare du Nord.

Booking through Viator was the best thing we could have done. I had to phone them as my hotel in London was not on the list as a pick up point. The agent couldn't have been any nicer. She arranged for a car service to collect us from the hotel and drop us off at the train station. An agent from the tour company was there to greet us, with documents in hand. Our tour guide Sammy, greeted us upon arrival. Everything was as smooth as it could be. The hotel selected for us was located in Montmarte. It was a very nice hotel in a perfect location. Sacre Couer was about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. I deducted one star from the review because of seating on the Eurostar. I requested the standard train trip versus first class on the Eurostar. I felt like I was in a cattle car. The seats chosen were the worst of the worst. They need to work out a better system with Eurostar; choose seats for their tour passengers well in advance. Don't wait a week before departure. If you can afford the extra money, I advise upgrading to first class. All in all I had nothing too major to complain about. It was a wonderful 2 days laid out by the tour company. I will most definitely use them again for future tours.

Viator was great, Paris... not so. Arrangements were handled well, including prompt hotel pick-up in London. We had escorted tour and our tour guide was the best! The guided tour itself was well arranged and we were able to see a lot. Again, our guide was the best. The hotel was actually quite good. Large room (by European standards), good amentities, nice breakfast included. Hotel was conveniently located. Unfortunately, we find Paris a dirty city and the traffic congestion made the bus tour very slow for the most part. We opted to upgrade to first class for the return train trip, which was a bit of splurge, but it was nice to have more comfortable seats and beverages and a mice meal as we relaxed on the trip back to London.
