Speak to guide, not Viator
Steven_Z, June 2023
The guide was nice and tried. We paid a lot of money for a tour that was disorganized (didn’t have a car for the first hour) and there was a lack of communication between the Viator and the guide. We tried to plan other sights (other than the top 30 sights - great tour!) the day prior and Viator reassured us that we would see interesting things since we let them know about this prior tour. We decided to let the experts give us a taste of other things to see in Paris. The guide was clueless. She had no idea we got the private car and no planned itinerary for the day except what we had seen the day prior. She ended up doing her best and showing us what she could. It was very expensive for the experience. Our other Viator experiences were great, but if you plan to do this make sure you plan your 6 hours out. The guide needs to communicate with you, not Viator. You need advanced notice to gain entry into places - Viator had advanced warning, but the guide did not and we were unable to go into places or visit sights. It was disappointing.
Recommended if you like Walking & History!
Katy_K, June 2023
Our tour guide Alex was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable on the history of Paris and very thorough on our walking tour. She kept a comfortable pace and we were able to stop for a quick bite along the way. It was a sunny day but she made it a priority to stop & chat in shady areas as opposed to direct sunlight. Our walking tour gave us a good introduction to the city of Paris, which we then further explored the next two days on our own. We walked about 7-8 miles total, so be sure you wear comfortable walking shoes and bring sunscreen!
First time in Paris!!
Brenda_D, May 2023
It was amazing. Our guide was so knowledgeable about everything we visited. He took the time to point out attractions we might like to see if we ever come back..
Great tours hitting all the hot spots and some hidden treasures - Just a little too long
jessgraz, May 2023
Our tour guide Hannah was a delight as we toured the hot spots of Paris from the comfort of our own mini bus (we were 8 people). She also showed us parts of Paris that were secret gems - ones we would never think to visit on our own. Hannah’s was not only friendly and kind, but knew so much about Parisian history and cool facts about our stops. She was five stars!! The only reason this is 4 stars instead of 5 is because we realized that 6 hours is too long of a tour with a group of mixed ages - even with the bus available!
Stephanie the tour guide...
Janine_G, May 2023
Stephanie the tour guide was absolutely FANTASTIC So much knowledge and enthusiasm She also showed us the quainter things of Paris Enjoyed it immensely Would go again and use her everytime
Great experience!
Ron_S, May 2023
Views of the city, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triumphe and many other landmarks. We had lunch at a very nice restaurant.
Excellent Paris Adventure
Cheryl_M, Jan 2023
What a perfect, fabulous tour! We had the best time ever! Our tour guide was extraordinarily knowledgeable, extremely patient, fun, kind and went above and beyond around every corner and bend in downtown Paris. It was our most favorite adventure on our trip. 10 stars!!!
Tina did a great job,...
Suzanne_M, Nov 2022
Tina did a great job, even if she seemed to be a little inexperienced. She provided a lot of information and made sure we saw all of the high points in Paris. I wish she had engaged with my daughter a little bit more. The second day, we asked to walk instead of using the driver and Tina was a great sport. We covered almost 8 miles! Overall, it was a wonderful experience.
Wonderful guide Addie
Marlana_T, Nov 2022
Addie our travel guide was wonderful. We learned history of Paris visited beautiful places. She recommend a wonderful place to eat lunch. It was a perfect day. Thank you Addie for the wonderful memories.
Perfect day
Lauren_S, Nov 2022
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable of the history and architecture of the city. Tour can be tailored to personal interests whether it be the arts, cuisine, history, etc. very personable and gracious guide
Proposal in Paris
Donald_S, Oct 2022
Tina was our tour guide, she was awesome. Our driver was great getting us around. I wish I could have walked it more as sitting in Paris traffic was a drag. Definitely would recommend private tour, 1k to sit in traffic was a bummer, take the one where you use public transport. Either way ask for Tina! She videoed my wedding proposal and was so sweet!
A great day in Paris
Marie_R, Sept 2022
I apologize for this being late, my 18-year-old granddaughter and I, a 68-year-old with bad knees, took this tour back in June 22. It was perfect for us. As long walking was not something I could do. Our guide Addie was knowledgeable friendly understanding of my limitations and showed us so much more of Paris than I would’ve been able to manage on my own. Having both a guide and a driver also made it easier as we did not have to backtrack to find the car. Our driver just met us when we were ready to move on.
Pack a good pair of walking shoes tour
Maria_M, July 2022
Our wonderful guide Tina, met us at our hotel to get started right away and took us on a fabulous tour of all the highlights of Paris. Could of had more history at each spot but wandering the streets of Paris from spot to spot was Amazing!!
Detailed and engaging...
Trey_M, July 2022
Detailed and engaging history of Paris throughout our entire walk. This was the perfect way to acclimate. Our guide was energetic and knowledgeable, which made our day just that much better. Wonderful experience.
Terrific experience
Tiara_S, July 2022
Barbara was fabulous! Very knowledgeable and we had a great experience and covered a lot of sites. Would book it again in the future.
Wonderful experience
Liz_P, July 2022
Both the guide and the driver were fantastic. We were travel as a group of five -- two seniors, two adults and a sixteen-year-old. We only had one day to spend in Paris (we had all been before). The guide was an invaluable source of information and showed us a side of Paris we hadn't seen, and provided local and historical color. The driver knew the best routes and where to park / let us out. It was exactly what we needed to make the most of our time in Paris.
One day in Paris
Stephen_G, June 2022
Mila did a great job adapting to the wants and desires of our family of 7. She even set up an evening dinner reservation and walked inside to make sure all was good. Our family had a great time!
Must do Use Addie
jodi_m, June 2022
This was a great tour. Addie was an amazing tour guide. She knew where to take us and knew her history inside and out. We loved that she had fun information mixed in with the history to make it entertaining and memorable. John was her driver who did a great job getting us around the city and it freed up Addie to focus on the sights. Highly recommend her and this tour.
Nice tour
Erwinbudiman_H, Apr 2022
We are having a good time and the guide was so informative The car not so in good condition what i expected but still ok
A Day in Paris
Adele_L, Feb 2020
What an amazing experience! My family and I booked the tour as a day get-a-way from our London vacation. We wanted to see Paris but do not speak French and felt we would not be able to get around on our own. We wanted to make the most of our day in Paris and our guide Anya did just that!! She was very knowledgable and accommodating. We were picked up at the train station and she had messaged me prior to know where to meet up. Anya asked what our "must see" Paris attractions were and she hit all plus more! In 6 hours I feel we experienced what we wanted to see in the short time we had. We opted for the driving tour and our driver was fantastic! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone with a limited time in Paris!
