  • Every detail of the tours worked smoothly. Used the bus for orientation to Paris and as transportation about town. Took cruise in early evening luscious sunlight. Boat was full but not crowded. Splendid views from the river. Went right to the head of the line at the Louvre just as advertised. All around good deal plus lots of fun.

  • We were only Paris for 2 days this week and booked this package to make sure we get to see everything. Overall, it's a great package. Although they said the walking tour from Notre Dame has been discontinued months ago. We wish that would have been deleted as a feature here so we didn't have to expect it. When we went to Louvre, the line wasn't very long so it didn't make a difference whether we had a fast track ticket or not. The Big Bus hop-on hop-off was reliable although traffic in Paris caused some tour delay. The buses can get very packed too considering we were there also on a weekday. The Seine River Cruise was great. If you are in Paris for only a few days, this package will be helpful. I just wish they would also adjust the pricing now that the walking tour is no longer existent.

  • I'm a fan of hop on hop off tours - easy way to get around cities and get your bearings and hear interesting commentary. Skip the line tickets and river cruise were great inclusions.

  • The bus- be careful signs for the bus pickups is REALLY hard to find. Service desk was rude and not helpful. Cruise was the highlight. The Lourve- come around 9ish for less crowds.Though its a skip the line entry still need to queue to buy the audio tour. This shouldve been an option for this deal.

  • Best way to see Paris. Excellent value.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • For first time travellers in Paris, this is definitely a must. We get to see the iconic landmarks with no hassle. I like the way the recorded descriptions of each area are being presented . The background music added to the flair. You won't miss the bus stops. We are happy that whenever we stepped into the bus, there's always a room for the 4 of us!

  • Getting into Louvre was easy. Rented the recording. HOHO bus easy to use. River cruise was hard to find. Boat was very nice. Trip OK but nothing special.

  • !!!!!!!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.
