Adam was absolutely the best. His knowledge of the city was great. The information and stories of the art in the D’Orsay made the museum visit so much more interesting. Would let him guide us anytime we are here. 10+++++

Best tour we took in Paris. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us an amazing overview of Paris that we used to build the remainder of our trip. The pace is VERY FAST so be forewarned but there are breaks built in for snacks and occasional trips on the Metro. My only criticism is we should have eaten BEFORE doing the Musee d’Orsay (at noon) rather than after. By the end of the Musee we were all exhausted and we all wanted to see more and actually had an extra 30 minutes where we could have seen other parts of the museum but we didn’t have it in us. Then we were told we had to travel another 30 minutes over to the Eiffel Tower BEFORE we could eat. So it was 3 pm before we had lunch. Otherwise it was a wonderful day ending by going up the tower. We saved our river cruise tickets and used them on the morning of our last day and saw Paris from another perspective- amazing!

Loved this tour! You walk a lot but you see so much. It was fun using the metro and we loved all of the sights we visited. Our group size was good, ten people, and we loved our very informative guide, Jess.

In preparing for our trip to Paris I had read a blog where someone recommended this tour as a way to get the lay of the land in Paris. I am so happy that I stumbled upon it and booked. Our tour guide was Emmanuelle who led us on an all day journey through Monmarte, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower. I can say with certainty that having a guide enhanced the experience greatly. You begin your day meandering through Monmarte, exploring the view from Sacre Coeur then observing some of the popular spots in the area like where Van Gogh lived, the famous windmill, and a delicious patisserie. We then took a break at a wonderful cafe. We left the area and took a walk near the Seine River, getting to see Notre Dame. Emmanuelle preplanned some lunch options, and we sat down for a french meal at Le Fumoir which was delicious. Then we went to the Louvre. I am certain that you could spend many, many hours at the Louvre and still not see it all. I felt we were in good hands to see everything we'd hoped to see and learn so much more than expected. The Louvre is extremely overwhelming so taking a tour greatly enhanced the experience. Finally, Emmanuelle took us to our final destination at the Eiffel Tower and it was a great way to end the day. We chose to use our Seine river cruise a few days later when the weather was nice and we weren't so tired. It ended up being a sunset cruise and we docked just in time for a magical last night in Paris watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle. Note- this is a very intensive walking tour. You walk, a lot. So if you are booking this, I encourage you to ensure that you are capable of walking a lot. Think like 20,000 steps a lot. There were some people who booked who ultimately bailed out as they couldn't keep up. It's a lot of money to throw away. You will walk. A lot.

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.
