    Our guide was very knowledgeable. The opera looks beautiful and breathtaking! I’m glad we took this tour.

    The pick up location for the required paper tickets was really a disaster. The wrong address was listed on my purchase receipt and caused unnecessary stress. I finally just went into the Opera House to ask what to do - and that's where I actually needed to go. Why not just provide digital tickets and send us to the Opera House?The tour actually was GREAT!! What a magnificent, beautiful building. I took my two grandchildren, age 7 and 11. We studied the activity guide provided online before going, and the kids were prepared for the visit.
    Tatiana clearly engaged with them and made it special. We were able to hang around after the tour ended and watch workers set the stage for the next production. The kids were enthralled! We all loved the tour experience.

    The instructions that we received for the departure point were seriously less than helpful.njmber 8 does not appear on the opera building until near the back. You really need to go to the entrance down and to the left of the main front entrance. The whisper machines were terrible. It had a lot of static and picked up someone speaking french frequently blocking out the English information. Less than impressive.

    This place is beautiful better than Versailles. The art decor and architecture are well preserve. this is a must visit place

    Beautiful place to visit. We bought our tickets in advance through Viator and had an English-speaking tour guide. Would highly recommend this tour to those planning a visit.

    Most beautiful building in Paris. Would have liked to hear more about the conductors, singers and orchestras. Focus was on audience and their fashions.

    The Garnier Opera house is certainly worth visiting. We had an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and her English was quite good. The Chagall-painted ceiling is worth the price of admission. I highly recommend this tour.

    Bought tour tickets in advance. Got there and still had to get actual ticket, stood in line. Went to our lettered spot, tour guide late, had trouble handing out whispers. Found out auditorium was closed due to rehearsal scheduled. Very upsetting and tour guide was terrible. Could not get a refund - even though tour guide told us to do it. All they offered was a stamp on our ticket goid for a year. We live in the US, very unhappy all the way around. Our only chance to see it. No time to tour alone as opera house closed early due to opening night that evening. Should have been posted on website - these shows are scheduled far in advance

    We had a very informative and relaxed tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and easy going. We really enjoyed the pace and thoroughness of the tour.
