This was a 3.5 hour walking tour that covered about 5 miles. We saw sites we wouldn't of known of or wouldn't have time to see if it wasn't for this tour. The guide, Emma, was flexible in that she changed the ending destination from the Eiffel Tower to the Arc de Triomphe since we already visited the tower and hadn't yet walked the Champs de Elysees. I felt this was a good value for the time involved and that it was private..

Not Good for a Cruise Excursion

, Jun 2019
We notified the tour company that we'd be coming to Paris from the cruise port in Le Havre so we asked if we could customize the starting time. They agreed and gave us the number to our tour guide Romy. We texted about meeting times and locations but his answers were not helpful and he stopped texting back after two messages. We tried to cancel the tour but were inside the 24 hour mark so we still tried to make the tour but couldn't find the guide at what we thought was the correct place. Poor communication and no help for those coming in from a cruise.

This was a very poor tour and I am determined to warn others not to waste their money or their valuable holiday time on it. The tour we were given did not match with the tour name that we booked. We were shown no “hidden gems”. We were given misinformation about the highlights. Our guide was very inefficient with our time, taking the most circuitous routes to get from place to place. There were 8 of us, he spoke very softly. He didn’t use a device to help us to hear him. I have booked through Viator before and expected better.

The best tour of Paris

Solene was our guide and she was terrific! We saw not only main tourists sites of Paris, but she took us to many hidden gems - just what we were looking for. Solene is a terrific guide, who got to know each person in our group so she could show us what we're wanted to see. Highly recommend this tour, and ask g for Solene is you can!
