It was a long day but we were expecting that! Euwan was very knowledgeable and responsive to questions. Later in the day we did feel like we were rushing some, it might have been helpful to have spent less time at some sites in the morning. At the Louvre, we also would have liked to have heard more about the museum itself rather than some of the art history we heard about. One individual in our group asked many questions and wasn’t as aware that many others in the group were loosing attention. Overall though it was a great day and we loved how much of the city we got to see!

My husband & I did the "Paris in a Day" group tour with Carolina in March 2023 for our first full day in Paris. It was such a good & efficient way to see all of the big "must sees" in Paris. Carolina's in depth knowledge of all of the sites, fun stories, and ability to wrangle the group exceed our expectation of the tour. She was awesome. We were exhausted after our tour day (in a good way) and would 10/10 recommend to others.

Is the Eiffel Tower always included on this tour?
The Eiffel tower is open almost every day of the year, but it often closes on Bastille Day (July 14th) in order to set up for the annual fireworks display above the tower. Some years preparations begin on the afternoon of the 13th. If you are planning to visit the Tower around Bastille Day, please contact our customer services team to check on the hours of closure for the Tower.
Can I bring a stroller on this trip with me?
Yes, but please be aware that not every metro station that we use has working elevators. If you bring a stroller for your child you will have to carry it up some stairs.
When we're on the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower, can I buy tickets to access the top of the tower.
Unfortunately, no. If you want to buy tickets to the top of the tower you have to return to the bottom, wait in line, then buy your ticket to the top. They cost €25.00 each.
Do I need to bring an ID with me on this tour?
Yes! Please ensure that all members of your party have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit. This is particularly important for guests who have qualified for a student discount.
