A great day with a great guide! We got to see all of the big things we wanted to see during this enjoyable day. Even with a bit of rain and wind the guide made it a fun day and looked after us so well.

My Husband and I really enjoyed our day. Well organised. Our tour guide Sandrine looked after. Is very well. Skipped the long queues at the Louvre and Eiffel Tower. The lunch at Restaurant 58 on the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower was the highlight also really enjoyed the river. Raise along the Seine. Would recommend this tour if you don’t mi d walking.

Great tour guide, great tour with lovely cruse , got to see Mona - Lisa of course, terrific lunch at the Eiffel tower, and good discussion about the fire at Notre Dame. Definitely worth the time and money.

We loved every minute of this tour. Our teens - who were not chomping at the bit to go the Louvre - Declared it a total success! Lunch was very delicious and the views were beautiful. A great way to see some highlights of Paris

It was an excellent tour-a lot of walking. My granddaughter and I really enjoyed it and the lunch at the Eiffel Tower was very good.
• Submitted 29 Jul 2019
We would highly recommend this tour. Our guide Sandrine was very knowledgeable about the Louvre, Seine, Eiffel tower and the Notre dame. For us, the highlight was having a magnificent lunch on the Eiffel tower and then taking the stairs up to level 2 for some beautiful views. Skipping the massive lines was a bonus. Well worth it to avoid 2 hours queue. Our only suggestion for this toour would be to spend a bit more time at the Louvre. Now that the Notre Dame is undergoing renovations after the fire, there's not as much to see; and the Louvre is wonderful. Our two kids (14 and 10) didn't get bored at all! Highly recommended!!

Vincent was an excellent guide. My ten year old daughter and I enjoyed it very much. However, you need to be fit. It’s a long day with lots of stairs, lots of walking and some queueing.
• Submitted 12 Jul 2019
Things happen, we all know that... and it just so happens that on the day we were supposed to go on this trip, employees at the Louvre went on strike. Also a few weeks before was the horrible fire at Notre Dame. We had a wonderful guide who did what she.could and tried very hard to get us in to the Louvre to no avail. They kindly refunded me for the missed opportunities. I would try it again on my next trip.

This is a great way for a new visitor to experience a few highlights of Paris. This is the second time I have done this tour. It is well organized and an efficient and effective way to see these benchmark attractions. Highly recommend!

Our tour guide was English speaking in very easily understood. She was thorough friendly and she kept up with all of us that we didn’t fall back and lost in the shuffle. The Eiffel tower experience was awesome and the food was fabulous
• Submitted 03 Jul 2019
The tour was a great overview of the top attractions in Paris especially since I only had a little over 2 days to spend in Paris. Our tour guide (I don't remember her name) was exceptional. She was patient, friendly and very knowledgeable. The tour included lunch at the Eiffel Tower which was actually really good, I didn't have super high expectations since its such a tourist heavy sport but the French don't mess around with food. The ticket for the river boat for transportation to/from the Eiffel Tower was also nice. I went only a couple weeks after Notre Dame burnt down so we weren't able to get very close for safety reasons but still got a good history lesson.

A very informative tour and the tour guide was very well versed with the history of all three venues we visited. Despite the cold and rainy day it was very enjoyable

We loved our tour and appreciated the well informed guide who led us through the Louvre explaining the history and meaning of the art pieces. We enjoyed our boat trip down the Seine which took us to the Eiffel tower where we enjoyed a nice and relaxed lunch. I would chose Viator again for tours.

Pedro was an awesome guide for an awesome group! We saw and learned so much about Paris while laughing and enjoying the day.
• Submitted 19 Mar 2019
Our tour guide was great! The tour size wasn’t too huge. The lunch at Eiffel Tower was superb! The only thing I would change is the time at the louvre. It was too rushed. Maybe start off the the cathedral, go to the tower then end at louvre. Overall not bad
• Submitted 18 Mar 2019
This was a great tour. We were able to see so many things in one day. Eating lunch at the Eiffel Tower was amazing!!!!
• Submitted 18 Mar 2019
We had a nice small group for this tour. We saw the major pieces of art in the Louvre. Beware of aggressive Asian tourist when you get to the Mona Lisa. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was the highlight. The food was very good and the scenery fantastic. This was a great tour even in the November rain.
