  • Notre Dame was very good but Sainte Chapelle is not to be missed - so beautiful.

  • Davor was an extremely informed guide. He was able to bring in personalities of history and make us feel the past. He made Paris even more memorable. The city is amazing and knowing more about the past was incredible. Notre Dame was a moving experience and Sainte Chapelle more gorgeous than you can imagine. Both will stay with us for life. The cost of the tour is well worth it and I highly recommend City Wonders and Davor. Always love VIP and not standing in line!

  • We could only wish that our tour guide, Avi, had personal time to lead more tours. We were exceptionally pleased with the information provided, both historic and artistic style, as our guide was not only a student but a teacher as well. This was easily one of the best tours we participated in during our ten days stay in France. Meeting on the Pont Neuf, and walking along the Seine River, past the Hall of Justice where trials of those accused of crimes against the people of France during the French Revolution was fascinating. Our arrival to the grounds of Notre Dame Cathedral through the center front gate was awe inspiring. Avi drew our attention to the architectural features as well as the symbolism and reminded us of the time span involved in the construction of this landmark. We look forward to a return trip to France based on what we have seen, experienced and learned on this trip. Vive La France!

  • I took several tours in Europe and this was one of my least favorite. The guide makes or breaks the tour and Ruben just didn't cut it for me, unfortunately. We focused on many details that didn't interest me and didn't even go into the first building until an hour into the tour. 9 out of 15 people in our group left the tour midway through. We then stood outside of Sainte Chappelle for 30 min just talking while it was raining on us and we could have been inside enjoying the views. Also just FYI there is no skipping lines at Notre Dame.

  • Great tour guide. Nice and knowledgeable. Loved this. We were jet lagged, but still enjoyed the tour and the history a lot. Used the restroom before this tour! Paris is not the best place of you really gotta use the restroom. :/

  • Avi was the perfect guide!!! So knowledgeable but in a way that made hearing all the info fun and entertaining!

  • This was a great tour. Our guide, Charlie, was knowledgable, friendly and helpful.

    Note - this is a 2.5 hour tour and there are NO restroom stops, so prepare accordingly.

    Restrooms are a challenge in Paris, but there is a solution - Starbucks has clean restrooms for the price of a java.

  • Fantastic tour guide of Notre Dame inside and outside walking tour and love skip-the-line tickets - don't miss Sainte-Chapelle!

  • Definitely worth going to Sainte Chapelle as well. Having a tour guide to explain the history of the island and the background of the churches was very enriching.

  • We loved our tour guide and found the tour Informative, and interactive. The information that printed up about the meeting point was not entirely clear. The meeting point is directly by the Metro entry point, next to the flower market.
