Very informational tour. Our guide Charlie was interesting and obviously knowledgeable about the tour. The Cathedral was beautiful and I am grateful to have been able to see it.
Our guide provided very useful informations on the history of Cite island with passionate and professional presentation style.
The guide was a great little Irishman not French ?? with a professional friendly presentation style.
Looking at the long lineup at Notre Dame I was thankful for the skip the line access although those waiting appeared not as happy
We did this tour during our first full day in Paris. Meeting coordination was as noted and we had a decent sized group. The Cathedral of course is awesome and the guide was quite engaging and well informed.
There was a bit of a delay getting through the tower line -- on the order of a half hour or so. That caused some coordination problems with a couple of others on the tour as they had a subsequent tour closely timed.
Also, it should be made clear that the 400 step walk can be troublesome for some. It was clear that at least one touring person was not going to make the walk up the tower -- that's not a fault of the description, except perhaps to include a note that the tower walk is REAL exercise.
My wife and I could have gone all the way up but stopped at the bell tower level due to time constraints -- that 30 minute delay getting access to the steps, plus a couple of delays by the Tower security people grabbed up some spare time for us.
That being said, this was an excellent tour and the guides explanation of other sites in the one hour lead up to the Cathedral portion of the tour were very much appreciated.
It might be useful here to make sure people realize that the tour really has three components.
1 A walking tour of Ile de la Cite about an hour or so.
2 A guided tour of the inside of the Cathedral about 30 minutes
3 The skip the line access to the tower once the guide gets you in at this point, the guided portion completes.
That might reduce some confusion. Also, we do wish that 30 minute hold for tower access could have been less -- say 15 minutes or less.
Josephine was an awesome tour guide. I and #39;ve gone on tours of Notre Dame before, but Josephine gave excellent insight and new information that I and #39;ve never heard before! By all means, go on this tour. The climb to the tip-top was spectacular!
Our tour guide, Lee, was really knowledgeable and entertaining.
great tour. The guide was awesome.
Ben was our tour guide. Very knowledgeable. Many interesting facts provided which would be very rare for an outsider to learn in a short trip. Highlight was the visit into the Notre Dame where Ben and #39;s expertise came in handy and the explanation of the front doors symbols.
outstanding! from the knowledge of the guide to his interpersonal skills.
Fantastic tour guided by Avi who was simply fantastic! Avi and #39;s commentary and knowledge were just superb. The skip the line tix to enter the bell towers were definitely worth it. Highly recommended..!!
