Best tour I took in Paris. Our tour guide was wonderfully informative and took us to some interesting sites of Montmartre. The Louvre tour hit the main highlights. No line to wait in we walked right in. We booked the tour for a Friday. The Louvre closes at 9:45 pm on Fridays, so after the guided portion of the tour was over, we had time to explore on our own for a few hours.
We started with the tour of Montmartre and heard lots of interesting facts from our guide, Jean Louis. The funicular ride is a must especially for people who will be challenged by the uphill climb to the Basilica Sacre Coeur. Next, was our Louvre Museum tour which Jean Louie expertly navigated and pointed out the most important artworks. We will never forget Jean Louie he is very engaging and animated and made the whole tour fun. It was a plus to take this tour on a Friday since the museum closes late and you can stay longer after the tour if one wishes.
The Dirty Dozen
This was an excellent tour. Our guide made the event fun and told us a lot about the artists where they lived etc.We got to spend a lot of time at the Louvre after the tour was over and explore it on our own.

The tour was very well organized and our tour guide was very knowledgable. Having a tour guide, particularly in the Louvre was a huge benefit, not to mention the skip the line feature! I would highly recommend this package and make sure you go on a night that the Louvre is open later so you can stay on your own after the guided tour and explore more!
Great tour, guide was very informative and full of knowledge regarding the village! I was very impressed and excited. The vendor should advise that this isn't for people that can't walk up a hill or steep street. We had a woman that couldn't do the full tour.
Really a very nice combination tour, I would have liked to see the inside of the basilica with a skip the line entrance there as well. As it was there was not enough time to see inside with how long the wait was. But still a very nice tour, my guide was knowledgeable and had a fresh way of delivering information to keep things interesting. I would suggest to anyone to take the tour on a Friday when the Louvre is open later so you can wander and marvel to your hearts content.
Great tour, lots to see and great access to the Louvre. The tour guides did not make any effort to interact with the group though, they just seemed to run through their script.
Very informative, helpful and friendly guide. A must tour for those with limited time.
Visiting Montmartre was a different experience. The old town, its survival with the surrounding, dominating Paris with its view, and its independence. Really it was a center of artist...
Louvre tour is a must, specially with interested guided personal to scim its important points in one afternoon.
Tour was just ok
From the moment we got there, had to wait 20 min in line to "checkin" at paris vision store
Guides to slow, we lost a lot of time at the louvre with trivial small talk
The first tour guide at montmartre had a microphone and was litteraly "breathing " in our ears
Tour was organized and timelines were good but our guide definitely could of been better. Although somewhat informative she was having difficulties enduring the tour physically and we were victims of her laboured breathing through our headsets. This was very unpleasant and when told, she dismissed it and sarcastically said we could hear her because she was alive. Instead of turning the microphone away from her mouth or turning it off when she wasn't talking. It was extremely annoying. One couple quit the tour in Montmartre and went on their own. It would of been nice if there would of more enthusiasm during the tour. We left Montmartre feeling a bit underwhelmed and unsatisified. The Louvre tour was a bit better. The guide managed to highlight a few important works of art and was interesting but in the end she called us The Survivors meaning that she is use to losing a few people along the way. What does that tell ya? I think it's time for this guide to either get a second wind and burst of enthusiasm or hang up her headset.
Tour was ok. Louvre was worthwhile as a quick intro but Montmartre no tour given. We were dropped off with almost no orientation to the area.
Viator should consider re-evaluating the relationship with this vendor. After printing out our ticket from our Viator confirmation we were instructed to exchange at an incredibly busy tour office for other tickets for some reason. Everyone in office was unfriendly and unhelpful. At the front of the line, we tried to approach a ticketing desk and were yelled at by a woman NO! GET BACK BEHIND THE LINE!. This was the ONLY rude experience we had in the entire trip to Paris - a terrible way to start. The tour itself was okay. On the way there, there was little commentary besides the importance of getting to the bus on-time although we passed directly by the Opera house - no commentary. We got very little information in Montmartre from the tour guide and we actually lost a portion of the tour group because it was super busy and she seemed to not care if anyone was able to keep up. Instead of looking for them, she asked those still present to remind them to come back to the bus on-time and left. Very little information on the Sacre Coeur which we toured on our own best part - do not miss. The bus was fine and the bus driver was friendly. The Louvre tour was much better - if we had skipped the horrible tour office and weird time in Montmartre and spent the whole time at the Louvre, we would have given a better review. Viator - consider taking this tour in-house as our tour directly through your company was MUCH better.
Very disappointing- quite a disorganised start, much time wasting and re walking turf already covered. tour guide Linda was friendly but quite flustered at first. Too much wasted time in Montmarte and too much rushing at the Louvre .
My family and I were very disappointed in the tour overall. There were several problems: The busses were extremely largewanting to pack as many people as they possibly can so it was very challenging driving through most of the tiny street of paris. The tour guide, although seemed like a nice person, was not very knowledgable of the museum exhibit and we could only understand 20 of what she was saying due to a very heavy accent along with horrible headsets. The checking in process was even worse. Terrible customer service. The man inside the agency was yelling and screaming at people. I would not recommend This company CityTour. They try to pack as many tourist as they can and shove them in different groups. Overall, I would never use this company again!!
So disapointed we could not find the pick up point.Got in area in plenty of time. No clear signage. Took the metro to try to catch you at Monmatre but did not see you. unable to get into the Louvre with my voucher. WASTE OF ALMOST one hundred pounds. Upset as was part of birthday present. :-(
