OK. Just OK.

Mildly interesting. Our driver was certainly knowledgeable (especially about architecture), but we looped past the same areas multiple times without venturing into other nearby districts. Would not recommend the river cruise - it was a bit of a yawn.

We were only in Paris for 2 days so decided this was the best way to see as much as possible in such a short time. And it was fabulous! Our guide ( I don’t remember his name) was very knowledgeable with the history of what we were looking at, and super friendly and helpful. A worthwhile tour, both on land, and the river cruise. We were thrilled with the experience. No disappointments what so ever.

Enjoyed the tour. Sarah and the driver were very patient with the several deviations required on the day due to police traffic control requirements. Lovely relaxed way to get an overview of the heart of Paris on the land and water. Hapyy to recommend both.

Very informative by our guide Oliver learnt lots and glad he was driving as mayhem through Paris. Was disappointed that Eiffel Tower tickets weren't available for the time we originally booked so booked earlier ones as offered, but sadly missed it due to train delays into Paris. We were told the day after booking the tour about Eiffel Tower but not offered to change the day of the tour. I think they shouldn't have taken our booking if didn't have the tickets available. Made it in time for the tour and with time to spare. Saw the glass roofed mini bus parked and it looked good, went for a wander then returned for our tour. Our driver came and collected us and off we go. There were only 6 people on the tour, 4 already on the bus then we got on, but it was just a normal mini bus no glass roof as advertised or as we had seen. Tour was good with lots of information but sadly as we were on the right side of the bus unable to see the places statues etc. Feel it would have been much better and easier to see more if it had the glass roof. Trip down river was good. Generally a good trip to introduce you to places to visit in Paris. If the mini bus was glass roofed as advertised and we got Eiffel Tower tickets as originally booked would have given a much higher rating but was sadly left feeling slightly disappointed!!!

This was great. We did this the day after we arrived in Paris. We wanted to get a feel of the place before we did our own thing. The only problem was finding where to catch the tour. We got horribly lost and arrived late. Our guide was forgiving, informative and lots of fun. We have found this with all the tours we have had. It was a beautiful sunny day and the Seine cruise was relaxing. The complimentary champagne on the cruise went down well. September is definitely a great time to be in Paris.
