Take big bus tours
William_S, Sept 2022
This was horrible. Ear plugs worked hall the time, meeting place hard to find, disorganized, facts very boring, did not see some major buildings and went by many places twice. A terrible experience.
Tour and boat ride
krmulligan718, May 2022
The boat ride was especially good. Bus tour was ok. I would have preferred a live person. The meeting location was very difficult to find.
No refund

Great river cruise
Rosalyn_H, Aug 2019
The cruise was extremely affordable. The boat was clean and comfortable. Included in the cost was a bus tour of the city. The information was informative. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Sight seeing
Tiffany_N, July 2019
The city tour and sight Seine River were great. We enjoyed the tours very much, but the meeting point was terrible. The address on the ticket was different from the actual meeting point. We stayed at the address on the ticket for almost 1/2 an hour and didn't see anyone showed up, so we decided to ask other tour guides and luckily we found out that we needed to check in in the office next to where it's stated on the ticket. We almost missed our tours.
Roseanne D, May 2019
First off being from the US and not knowing anything about Paris,I felt very confused as to how to find the location for catching the bus. The bus ride was ok but most of the time was spent listening to music as we sat in traffic. The river ride was good but at no time we were instructed to keep our headsets to listen to various locations along the way. And, afterwards we were left at the Seine to figure out how to get back to our original location. If I had to do it again, I would have spent my time in Paris exploring on my own.
If you take this tour make sure...
Hector S, July 2018
If you take this tour make sure you're on the upper deck on the bus or else you'll end up missing a lot! The river cruise was just okay. Take it only to say that you sailed the Seine a being there, done that kindda thing.

Dorothy S, Feb 2018
This tour did not even last an hour. We only saw the Eiffel Tower, Opera House and Champs Elysees Arch de Triomphe. We were told they would not be doing the river cruise and to try to get a refund with Viator. They would not let us join the others going to the Eiffel Tower, they just dropped us off at the Eiffel Tower after only one hour. The Hop On Hop off bus was more informative. The guide never spoke. We just had a recording like the Hop On/Off buses. She never added any additional information.

annie.3rand, Jan 2018
We took this tour in the morning and it was such a great way to start our day. The bus tour took us to major sites and we ended at the pier. We boarded the boat and cruised down the Seine. It was a little cloudy start to the day but by the time the river cruise ended, the sun was out and it was a glorious day. This is a really good tour to take because you get to see some of the major sites on the bus tour and then you get to enjoy a wonderful cruise down the Seine - this is a great tour!

Tabitha_L, Dec 2017
the city tour was good you can skip the river cruise wasn't worth it.

haris a, Nov 2017
Great experience! We signed on for a 3 hour tour including bus and a river cruise starting at 15:00. At this time of year I highly recommend this time slot. When you start it's still a daylight and by the time you finish it is dark which makes it perfect for your Eiffel tower night photos. It may be little chilly however, make sure you get a nice spot at the top - outside. Haris.

Audio guide with very poor information, minutes in total silence. The host Victor was overrun. It fel that Paris City Vision wants only your money.

Good Value for money. Would recommend the trip to lean about the History of Paris
Dear Travelers, The Seine River...
Natalie D, Sept 2017
Dear Travelers, The Seine River Cruise was the best...You will have access to all languages devices that will tell you what you are seeing and wow... The Bus Tour was very good but the Tour Guide needs to relax a little...We are on holiday's and we are not children..He needs to smile and go with the flow.. And Yes I do recommend this Tour...Voila! From a Friendly Canadian

BARBARA M, July 2017
The city tour was fine but we missed the river tour because of the airport shuttle taking 3.5 hours to get us to our hotel. Very disappointed

Amy S, June 2017
This was a really nice tour. Headphones were provided by the tour guide upon boarding the bus, and you just had to select the appropriate channel for your language - the tour was prerecorded. There were lots of interesting historical facts presented along the way. Only a few people on our bus had selected the Seine River Cruise, which was at the end of the tour, and there was a bit of confusion when we arrived at the dock as to what we were supposed to do. The boat ride was nice, but there was no guide to provide any information on what you were seeing as you cruised past. It was still nice and relaxing.

Simone M, Jan 2017
The city tour on the bus was very intresting and showed all the most famous sights of paris. The river cruise showed many of the same sights but due to bad weather and being stuck inside the boat the view was poor.

Shalon_G, Oct 2016
It was a good first day tour to check out the highlights and sites. The bus tour took you through Paris. The river cruise was fun and nice. It made it possible to see the landmarks from a different aspect. Notre Dame is beautiful from the river bc you can see all the detail along the back side.
This is a nice tour but not great...
Robert_J, Sept 2016
This is a nice tour but not great. The narrative for the tour was good and then we got tickets for the Seine, but it is just a tour on a bus that doesn't stop and you see things out the window and it is very quick and cursory.
