This tour was pretty much exactly as described. Pick-up at our hotel was on time and our driver/tour guide did a good job of describing the points of interest and history of the various areas we visited. We especially enjoyed the tasty lunch and views at the Eiffel tower as well as the chance to explore inside Notre Dame cathedral. The Seine River cruise offered an opportunity to see parts of the city from a different perspective. If you're only in Paris for a short visit, this tour provides a good overview of this beautiful city.

This is by far the best choice I made during my visit to Paris. Fred, the driver was so knowledgeable and friendly, he made it a lot of fun. You'd be surprised at how many relatives he has living and working in Paris. By arranging all of the noteworthy places to tour the lunch at the Eiffel Tower the River Cruise, he made it all happen like clockwork and it was totally delightful. Thank you for your delightful and efficient City Tour by Minivan. I loved it. Harriet Wenger Bradenton, FLorida

We had a great time on our tour of Paris. To see so much in one day is daunting but we did it. Herbert, our guide was great!. Lunch at Eiffel Tower was really good and the views fantastic. Our family enjoyed this tour greatly.

We started our tour with wasting 1 1/2 hours waiting for a Brazilian couple who was delayed to join the tour. But overall, we had a great time with our tour guide, Mr. Oscar Caicedo who made our tour fun, informative and enjoyable. We had a great city tour round Paris, passed through the Musee de Louvre, Notre Dame, stopped over at Arc de Triomphe to take some pictures, had a nice time at the Seine River Cruise and of course having our lunch at Eiffel Tower. It was breathe taking. Over all, it was a great tour.

David-our guide was the perfect host. Traffic issues kept us from one drive-by site. It was frustrating for all, but he kept his cool. We rerouted our plans and made the Arch at the end of our trip to the satisfaction of all. We received full value for the day's excursion.

An excellent way to get a good flavour of Paris in a day!
We shared the minivan with three American ladies who unfortunately were late at their pick up point. The minivan tour had just the right balance of stops/walking - although the driving/traffic in Paris is pretty scary!
The lunch in the Eiffel Tower was good value and service was excellent. It took us about 20 minutes from the beginning of the queue for the lift to being seated in the restaurant on the first floor. We then had about 20 minutes to explore the Tower before getting to the boat which is located nearby. Luckily the weather was hot and we were seated in the open area at the rear. The cruise passes under 20 bridges and provides excellent views of many of the Paris sites.
All in all ... a very enjoyable 'April in Paris'.

We took this tour on our first day in Paris to get acquainted with the overall setting. Pedro, our guide, was such fun and very informative. We found that his comments kept returning later as we re-visited places and remembered what he had explained about them. The lunch at Eiffel Tower is surprisingly good, views wonderful. Seine boat cruise had audio guide and TV in English as we passed monuments. All went very well, and we were pleased.
