    I am requesting a refund. I was not allowed to enter the Louvre. A bunch of other people bought tickets for Viator too and they were all not allowed to enter the Louvre either. Total waste of not only $75 but my quick trip to Paris too.

    meh. i had a 2-day pass and didn't bother with the second day. i think i did 2/4 routes. the audio guide was out of sync and extremely boring. i did get to see some of the best sites from the top of the bus, a good vantage point, and decide where i wanted to go later.

    Tour is great but driver was rude, maybe he had had a bad day...

  • 25-Aug-2018

    Great way to see it all !

  • 07-Aug-2018

    frankly its just a bus tour like so many there. the busses come and go in a certain frequency. not always easy for any bus tour. ive been on so many different ones the think to look for is more about the complaints. I had none although the experience wasn't WOW.

    The bus ride was fantastic but we went on a Tuesday and the Louvre is closed on Tuesday. Check before you go.
