Wow. I can't believe it took me this long to go inside this building. The guided tour is the only way to get a real insider view, as they take you into the theatre assuming no rehearsals happening, which gives you the full perspective of the interior and ceiling art you can't from viewing from the two public boxes.
This theatre is an amazing feat and my jaw dropped more than a few times. It has been kept in stellar condition since it was opened, so really worth the visit. It even has a hall of mirrors that rivals Versailles!
As a big fan of Phantom of the Opera this was must see and it exceeded my expectations! its a magnificent building and our guide was very informative and patient as we had a large group. it was lovely to see parts that are normally off limits as there are areas that are guided tours only. Had to buy the book all about it when I saw it. I would definitely recommend this!!
Is is a must see place and the tour was very informative and I got out of it a lot more than just walking round the building on my own. Our tour guide was exceptional and was very knowledgable.
A wonderful walking tour of the Opera Garnier in Paris. The guide did a great job of showing us this beautiful opera house.
This was my first big historical building to visit on my first trip over seas from the US. My mouth dropped on the magnitude of these huge open spaces and how they were built without modern technology. I'm also in love with Phantom of the Opera, so I had to come see were the stories originate.
Our guide Anna really helped me as I am disabled. She has a wealth of knowledge and made it very enjoyable as well as educational. Only problem was joining the group as there were so many people going in. Maybe a different meeting point would be helpful.
The Opera Garnier was my favorite place in Paris. Our tour guide was wonderful, so the tour was both full of beauty and entertaining. We were so fortunate in that the theater was open and the curtain up so that we could watch some construction going on. In August of 2016, there were no crowds. There are no lines to skip, even in the afternoon. There was one other tour group going through that we saw once. It was great.
This tour was very informative and our tour guide was knowledgeable and also kinda hilarious :

Interesting view of the Opera. Tanya, the guide was knowledgeable. Being able to get to the seating area was a tremendous Plus
Fun and informative tour and guide. Lovely to see and hear the stores of the Opera Garnier. We didn't plan to do this tour but thoroughly enjoyed it and were glad we did.
