  • !!!!!!!Do not use Viator, some of you will not adhere to this warning. they do not answer the phone to help you find the meeting point and the customer service is rude.

  • A very good and informative tour. Well worth the effort

  • Make your life easier. No lines makes a big difference. The Hop-on and Hop-off was a problem because you have to go to the central office to do the ticket validation

  • The bus tour was very educational.

  • Do not go to these places without purchasing a ticket! Skip the line tickets are definitely worth it! This worked very well. Pick up the ticket the day before so you can get into the Louve at 9, when it opens. The place to pick up tickets did not open until 9:30.

  • Well worth the money. Queues at the Louvre were not long considering how busy Paris was and the Seine cruise a great way to see the sights.

  • This was especially valuable at the Louvre because of the snaking lines. The Hop on Hop Off classic tour is far more interesting than the Montmartre tour if you decide to only stay on the bus. There isn't much to see and the route goes through heavy traffic.

  • Easy to find. The guide was great. Not be missed. There is not skip the line from the Summit, but is worth the wait to the top.

  • Best way to see all of Paris in just two days!

  • We really enjoyed our visit to the Louvre and the queue to get in with Skip the Line was relatively quick. Seine River cruise was taken in the evening and was really lovely. Staff were all helpful and very pleasant and welcoming. The Hop on/Hop off bus was a good way to see Paris and learn the history. It was easy to collect tickets but a few things would make it much better:
    1 if there was a reverse route one could go to the next place one wants to see without having to do the whole route again. This would be helpful especially when time is short.
    2 the bus tickets should start at the time they are collected and run for the next 24/48 hours

    All in all, we had a great time in Paris and thank you for your assistance in getting us to where and what we wanted to see.
