Great evening, Throughly enjoyable consider a window seat but if you cannot stretch yourself it will be okay as the main area is raised so you will still see nicely.
Food was top class not to much nor to little. The waitress was very generous with the wine which was also good quality.
I think considering that one is travelling down the Seine and seeing Paris light up at night this goes down as a world class event, I will say there is not a running commentary of what you are going past so consult the info they give you.
Lastly the on- board entertainment was classy, not intrusive.
Ensure a memorable night out in Paris with a gourmet dinner cruise along the Seine River. Float past the city’s famed monuments, such as the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, and Ile de la Cité aboard a luxury Bateaux Parisiens riverboat. Soak up the magic of Paris from an onboard dining room while enjoying a gourmet 3-course meal. Please note that Champagne and live music are also included on select 8:30pm departures.
The Louvre is a massive museum and booking a Skip the Line: Guided tour is the only way to visit.
Ruben, our guide, was fantastic; approachable, clever and funny. He shepherded us through the entry point - quick, easy, and past the massive lines - into the museum. His knowledge is extensive and his obvious passion is an asset to the experience.
He told wonderful stories (the gossip about the Mona Lisa is saucy!), revealed the meanings to various paintings the tour focused on (why is Napoleon dressed like a Roman emperor?) and knew the building well enough to quickly point us toward the exhibits we wanted to see once the tour was done.
We'd definitely book again with City Wonders Ltd Tours on our next visit.
Experience culture and art through the ages with a small-group tour of Paris’ epic Louvre Museum. Jump the queue and learn about some of the museum’s 35,000 artworks across eight themed galleries from your art historian guide. Then enjoy time on your own to explore, viewing paintings, sculpture, and architecture from 450 BC to the 19th century. Numbers are limited to 25 on this small-group tour or upgrade your ticket to a private tour exclusive to just your group.
Feast your senses on the vibrant color and charisma of the ‘Féerie’ show at Paris’ iconic Moulin Rouge during an extravagant evening in the City of Light. Take a seat in the atmospheric theater and prepare for a dazzling spectacle of drama, dance and music. See elaborately dressed show girls dominate the stage; marvel at dancers as they perform compelling choreography; and opt to upgrade to include a French feast and fine Champagne before the show starts.
Used bus often but only once did we have the narrator. Would be useful to have one on every bus. Otherwise it was great. Covered a lot of area. Buses came frequently to all stops. Plenty of ear buds and naps always available.
The Big Bus Tours are amazing - the audio descriptions are very good (and there'e even music) BUT if you get a live commentry it is fantastic - as they add their thoughts and feelings and can be really funny.
Make sightseeing in the French capital easy with a Big Bus tour of Paris. Enjoy the convenience of hop-on hop-off access at any stop along the route, and soak in the views from an open-top, double-decker bus. See sights like the Louvre Museum, Moulin Rouge cabaret club, and the iconic Eiffel Tower as you listen to informative, English-speaking guides or audio-commentary.
Dave was a great guide! He told us where to go to find amazing food, and I appreciated that he gave us a good amount of history and lore, but didn't overwhelm us. The other people on the tour were friendly and pleasant. This is a great way to see the grounds of Versailles and really take it in.
Great Experience, perfect way to explore Versailles
, Oct 2019
First let me start with the most important - our tour guide was amazing! His name was Denis. He was very knowledgeable, great sense of humor, he went above and beyond making sure we all have a good time.
This is a whole day event. Be prepared to ride bike on/off for good 3-4 hours, leisure speed though. My wife and I enjoyed it very much, learning a lot about French history.
Strongly recommend it!
The tour with Eddie was very informative and relaxing. We both enjoyed the easy going approach with Eddie and the itinerary and pace suited us perfectly. We have no problem with recommending this tour to other people.
The gardens of Versailles span an impressive 1,976 acres. Rather than exploring the sprawling grounds on foot, pedal your way around with an informative guide on this full-day Versailles bike tour from Paris.

Well organised day trip to MSM. It takes about 4 hrs to reach there and the bus trip was broken by a rest stop midway which was nice.
There were 4 hours at MSM itself.
It is an amazing place well worth going.
We opted for the guided tour which included lunch (with a view of MSM). We requested to skip the lunch and rejoined the tour in the abbey followed by some free time to buy souvenirs.
Long day but comfortable coach and good guide made it very nice
Our tour guide, Elizabeth, was excellent. She was full of historical information. She made the tour come alive. Would love to take make tours with her.
The meal was just so-so. Next time would not get the lunch and would have more time for the tour.
Travel through scenic Normandy en route to the medieval Mont-St-Michel on a full-day trip from Paris.

Great way to see many sights in a couple of days! Great staff!
, Dec 2019
Perfect way to see as many sights as possible. From the women in the kiosk at the eiffel tower stop to the staff on board, thank you for making this a great way to see some of the best that Paris has to offer.
Very punctual service too.
See the major sights of Paris from the water on a hop-on hop-off Seine boat cruise. With either a 1- or 2-day ticket, glide leisurely along the river, hopping off and on when you wish to visit the attractions that most interest you, such as Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre. Or simply stay on the boat to admire Paris’ World Heritage-listed riverbanks.
Maarten (sorry if I got the name wrong!) was amazing. He gave a great insight into the history of the tour around the Eiffel Tower and all the surrounding landmarks. At the end of the tour (ours was the last in the day), we spent a bit more time with him just talking in general about our experiences in Paris and he was extremely helpful in advising us about our trip and what we can do whilst in Paris.
The tour was great as well as we skipped the line and we had clear instructions regarding what the plan was and what we needed to do. I do advise all people who book to read the small prints on everything they provide as you need to arrive 15-30minutes before your tour start time to a location 5 minutes away from the Eiffel Tower.
Save time with this Viator skip-the-line Eiffel Tower ticket. This priority access admission ticket allows for a relaxing visit to one of the world’s busiest monuments, accompanied by a host.

See period-era military maps, plans, and photos, while listening to inspiring stories about June 6, 1944. Sip some of Normandy’s famous traditional cider before returning to Paris.
Immerse yourself in the extravagance of the Moulin Rouge, the most popular show in Paris, during an unforgettable evening that includes a gourmet 3-course meal. See talented troupes of colorful showgirls and expert dancers strut their stuff on the historical stage of the Moulin Rouge. Lose yourself in the dancing and drama and pleasure your palate with fine French flavors during a delicious meal. Book in advance to avoid missing this sell-out show.
Really enjoyed this tour a few days ago. The guide did an excellent job giving our group all of the information we were hoping for. One small issue was that the tour was oversold. Thus, before departing on the tour, people in the group were asked if they wouldn't mind canceling/being reimbursed their tour fee. This put everyone in an awkward, frustrated mood. No one said yes (because everyone had planned and looked forward to the experience). Luckily the tour was able to still take place, but with 4-5 extra attendees.
Dig deep into history with an underground Paris Catacombs tour. Learn why the bones of more than six million people were deposited under the city in a complex maze of tunnels that you definitely need a guide to navigate.
Normandy D-Day Beaches Trip with American Cemetery with Optional Lunch
Wonderful Trip to Normandy
, Feb 2020
This was a tremendous day trip from Paris and full of sites to see. Our tour guide, Vincent, was very attentive and full of knowledge and he kept the discussions going. We had a wonderful lunch at an old farmhouse from the 15th century- great atmosphere and wonderful food.
The whole experience was awesome!!!! The visit was on our bucket-list of places to visit, but it exceeded expectations in impact and scope. We were blown away by the vastness and visualizing the immensity of the landing.
The tour guide was great; she used the time on the bus to give us all the background information before getting to the museum. We could have used more time at the museum, but it was great to have one section for D-Day and another for the war overall. So much good info! The lunch was nice, but plain. It was convenient to add it and not have to purchase separately.
We visited Pont duHoc, Omaha, and Gold besides the cemetery. All were beautiful, somber, and overwhelming.
Would absolutely recommend this trip for anyone!!!!
Visit the D-Day beaches during this full-day trip from Paris to Normandy. Stop at Omaha Beach to learn stories and historical facts about WWII; stop at the Juno Beach Center; pause at the American Cemetery; and stop by the Caen Memorial Museum for a scenic lunch. Gain fascinating insights from your guide into the sacrifices of Allied soldiers and the French citizens they liberated. Upgrade to a small-group tour when booking for a more personal experience.
this bus tour is perfect if you don't have much time visiting a huge city like Paris. the guides are very good and multilingual and the lines cover the most part of the city. The blue line bus is very frequent and visits Paris's main attractions. I highly recommend it!
Finding your way around Paris doesn't need to be challenging, thanks to this hop-on hop-off bus tour. You have the option of one, two, or three days of double-decker bus access, covering various routes with stops at most of Paris’s most important museums, attractions, and shopping areas. And with your ticket, get all sorts of freebies, including walking tours and on-board audio guides with narration in multiple languages.
As someone who is not great with heights, the lift is a little bit daunting - especially the lift from the first platform to the next, but once you get up there, it is all worth it.
I went at night and WOW!
Instructions to meet the guide were simple and clear, and we left pretty much on time.
The guide took us through security and into the lift area, where we were given the choice to stay with him or to go off on our own.
Paying the extra for the skip the line was worth it, even though when I went it wasn't really much time saving, but I would guess at busier times it would be.
I highly recommend this tour, and especially at night!
The main reason I wanted to make sure and send in this review, was to congratulate you on hiring such a great guide. I can't say enough wonderful things about Romain. Besides being an excellent tour guide, full of humor and very knowledgeable, he went above and beyond. We knew we would be walking everywhere in Paris, so my partner had brought his cane. We had it with us when we met Romain for the tour, only to find out that canes, and such, were not allowed in/on the Eiffel Tower. Romain was able to talk a near by shop owner into holding on to it until after we returned from the tour. Unfortunately the shop closed while we were walking back, but Romain was waiting for us with the cane. I just want to let him know how much we appreciated it!! Thank you!
Breeze past the crowds outside the Eiffel Tower with this skip-the-line pass and 1.5-hour tour. In the company of your local guide, you'll gain priority access to the tower's second level.

Skip-the-Line: Paris Catacombs Tour with VIP Access to Restricted Areas
Skulls and Bones!
, Feb 2020
Fascinating. Our guide, Leye, is a great storyteller, very engaging and energetic. He kept us moving along without hurrying us. It would have been a lot less interesting without him. It's a little creepy down there, but not really because it's so well maintained.
This trip was beyond amazing John (Edward) was such a great guide called people by name and made it seem like we knew eachother super friendly and the amount of info we received was beyond amazing I was alone and felt like I was with friends I Definitely recommend taking this tour the stuff we saw the general public doesn't see was out of this world!!!

Loire Valley Castles Tour from Paris: Chambord, Chenonceau with Lunch & Wine
Great daytrip for Couples
, Jan 2020
My partner and I had a great time on the castle/wine tour. Our tour visited the impressive Chambord and Chenonceau castles while stopping for lunch and wine tasting at a lovely family owned castle in-between. Plenty of wine to be had through the trip and the food was lovely. We had Michelle as our tour guide and she was great! Super knowledgeable about French history and told us many interesting stories about the region. She also spent time after the tour answering everyones general questions about Paris. So helpful!
Fantastic tour of the Loire chateaux and superb lunch at chateau Nitray winery. Thank you Paris City Wonders for a great day. And our guide, Michelle, was wonderful. Couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. Do yourself a favour when you are Paris and book this tour.
Overall we enjoyed the tour, however, we got a little lost trying to get to the pick-up point and were scolded when we arrived late. Thank goodness the bus driver saw us! One of the tour guides took advantage of the wine tasting too much. I enjoyed the history lessons.
Marvel at the Loire Valley's opulent châteaux and taste its famous locally-made wine during this full-day tour from Paris. First head to Chateau de Chambord—the inspiration for Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast'—for a guided tour. Then, relax midday with a traditional French lunch at Nitray Vineyards, with unlimited wine. Then, visit the elegant Château de Chenonceau and embark on a tour through its intricately carved stone walls, rich hanging tapestries, and intimate chapel.
Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Summit Priority Access Ticket with Host
Excellent Eiffel Tower experience
, Jan 2020
We very much enjoyed our priority access Eiffel Tower tour. Our tickets expedited our entry & assured us the quickest access possible to the summit. Adrielle was a helpul & friendly guide who shared with us thistorical info. & ably assisted us with access. She also gladly answered questions. The location for meeting the guide is very convenient & a mere 2-3 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower. The office efficiently checked us in & got us on our way to the Eiffel Tower. We would do it this way again.
Only as fast track to the 2nd floor. Had to wait in line to get to top. The champagne and macarroon "special" was more expensive to buy from the company then it was to buy directly there. Totally not worth that part.
Bypass the long lines at the Eiffel Tower with this tour that includes summit access. After fast track, skip-the-line access, proceed to the second level to survey the city from the viewing platforms while listening to commentary about Paris culture, traditions, and history. Then, proceed to the summit to see Gustave Eiffel's private apartments and sip Champagne from the onsite bar (own expense).
Wonderful tour with David who shared interesting facts about the history and food of this great city. The jams were a surprising highlight as well of a more than 2 hour walk through the streets of Paris
Guide was awesome , knowledgeable, and fun. We liked our small group of 6 so that we could participate. Definetly do not hesitate to try out this tour. Food tours are our favorite way to get to know a city!
We had a very fun time learning about (and tasting!!) chocolate and also Paris's famous boulangeries! Our guide David was particularly great - he knew about history, architecture, food and art in addition to chocolate, pastries and bread. A leisurely but active tour with only 7 guests, including us.
Discover the cultural highlights and delectable bites of France’s capital on a culinary tour of Paris. Spend the afternoon strolling past the city’s iconic monuments with a guide and enjoy intermittent samples of pastries, chocolate and freshly baked bread. Listen to commentary of Paris’ rich heritage and receive personalized attention from your guide on this small-group tour, limited to only eight people.
Bateaux Parisiens Seine River Lunch Cruise with Live Music
Paris Highlights with Wine
, Feb 2020
Highly recommend this for a day event while in Paris! The service was excellent, and the live music was great! The food was good - just very classic French food that isn't really our style. Definitely splurge for a window seat and drink all the wine. An excellent way to see a lot of Paris in an efficient way.
Very poorly organised ticket/queuing system prior to getting on the boat - after queuing for 45 mins we were told we needed to go and collect physical tickets and queue again.
Boat was very clean with good views of the monuments however space between tables was not sufficient enough to be able to easily get in and out of your chair.
Serving staff were very kind and helpful.
On board entertainment was good.
Length of the cruise was perfect.
Food - portions were very small with limited options on the menu
Glide down the River Seine while enjoying a gourmet 3-course lunch aboard a Bateaux Parisiens river cruise. Soak up views of riverside attractions like the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame and Musée d'Orsay as you dine on seasonal selections from an à la carte menu, accompanied by wine. Enjoy live entertainment and a welcome glass of Champagne for a bubbly beginning to the experience.
Paris in One Day: Louvre, Eiffel Tower Lunch and Notre Dame Cathedral
Excellent half-day tour option!
, Jan 2020
My family of four opted for the half day tour, which started at the Louvre (skip the line and see the highlights) and a bateau-bus ride to the Eiffel Tower with lunch. This tour and lunch at the Eiffel Tower (outside under an enclosed dome) was the highlight of my teenagers' first time visit to Paris. Our tour guide was informative and funny. An extra bonus was that we were able to use the bateau-bus tickets all day. So, when we were done with lunch at the Eiffel Tower, we took the boat to Notre Dame on our own (which continues to be closed due to the fire). The metro strike was still happening, so the all day boat tickets were a wonderful way to see the City.
My tour was great , our tour guide was Franklin and he was great had so much insight to give us at the Louvre. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was great even though it was technically on the 1 st floor in a dome like space.
Unfortunately, I was unable to attended the one day tour Oct 7th due to an unforeseen illness and flu. I made it to the Paris City Vision bus terminal that morning and feinted and fell on the floor in the line at the counter. The staff was very nice to me and contacted the paramedics to attended to me immediately. Th staff stayed with me to make sure that I was ok until the medics arrived. I’m sure that the Pairs City Vision has this event noted on file under my name. I was very disappoint to miss the tour but had to be sent back to the hotel to rest the form the next two days before continue on my trip. This was of course no fault of the tour service whom was extremely attentive and cordial.
I am not certain if it is possible to ask for any amount of refund at this point, but due to the circumstances I would like to formally make the request for any partial refund if applicable.
Thank you. Joel Cisco
See the French capital with a guide on a half- or full-day tour of Paris, ideal for travelers short on time. Head inside the Louvre Museum to see artwork by Leonardo Da Vinci and tour Île de la Cité. Immerse yourself in the culture and architecture of the city as you travel along the banks of the Seine River to the iconic Eiffel Tower, and enjoy lunch on the terrace of a yacht facing the famous tower.
Versailles Palace & Giverny's Monet House Day Trip from Paris including Lunch
Lots of treasures
, Nov 2019
We really enjoyed the trip to Giverny. This has been on my bucket list for a long time and it did not disappoint. There were lots of people there but we had no problem making our way around the gardens. It was stunning. We enjoyed seeing Monet's home. Lunch was absolutely delicious in such a quaint restaurant. On we traveled to Versailles. It was raining and extremely crowded. To be honest it was not the experience we hoped for. We felt like sardines and couldn't wait to get out. Because of the rain our trip though the gardens of Versailles was rushed. This certainly was not the fault of our tour.
Monet House and Versailles are a must see if you are visiting France for the first time. The tour was comfortable and our guides were great. There was ample time to see everything and anything you would like to at Monet House. If you are visiting Versailles for the first time, I would recommend a different tour where you can spend more time there. 2 hours at Versailles is only enough to visit the main building. The gardens and other buildings a worth a separate visit for sure. 5 stars for comfort and service.
Many visitors to France make time to visit both the Palace of Versailles and Monet's Impressionist garden at Giverny. This day trip from Paris allows you to do both. First, wander through the lush landscape around the artist’s residence, which served as inspiration for his Nymphéas (Water Lilies) series. After lunch, head to Versailles and visit Louis XIV's lavish royal palace. On particular dates, you see the fountains on display.
The tour was a great way to see highlights and then have our own time to explore if needed. The tour guide (CityVision) was good, though she didn't keep track of people in group too well; she needed to keep talking and say where she was going, but since she didn't we lost two people crossing the first street.
CityVision was rather congested and somewhat unorganized, but once I exchanged voucher it was fine.
This guided tour with skip the line access is a good experience, learned a lot from listening to what the guide was sharing, and a real skip the line..different access... Be ready to walk and go up the stairs.. I loved this tour because i was able to see places I haven’t seen when I visited louvre without the tour guide...
Paris’ Louvre is one of the world’s largest art museums, so don't waste your time waiting in line. Head straight inside, with your priority access admission, to see three of its biggest crowd-pleasers, including the unavoidable gaze and wry smile of Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa." On this guided tour, hear fascinating tales and tidbits about these unmissable masterpieces. After coming face to face with several artworks by great masters, you’re free to explore the Louvre independently.
Best of Versailles Day Trip with Skip-the-Line Access & Lunch from Paris
Ricardo was Amazing
, Sep 2019
Everyone told us to skip Versailles because the lines would be too long and it would be so crowded we would not enjoy it. So wrong!!! Our guide Ricardo was not only knowledgeable about the history, but he knew how to navigate the site so efficiently that not a moment was wasted on a line!!
It was our lucky day - this turned into a private tour as we were the only couple signed up that particular day. Our guide did a spectacular job of getting us to the gates and positioned for entry at our pre-assigned time. She then guided us well through the palace itself over about an hour's time. We then had time to peruse the gardens on our own before meeting at a pre-assigned time and location near the Grand Canal for a 3 course lunch. Following lunch, we were driven a short distance to the Grand Trianon an Petit Trianon. From there, I wandered on my own to Marie Antoinette's village before returning to the vehicle for return trip to Paris. Pick up was near the Eiffel Tower and very convenient to our hotel.
Delve into the Versaille’s visionary architectural array on a comprehensive full-day tour from Paris. Sail past long lines outside of the Palace of Versailles with your priority-access pass. Embark on a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed wonder and see grand chambers like the Hall of Mirrors. Absorb the botanical beauty of the palace gardens, and then head to an esteemed restaurant by for a gourmet 3-course lunch (if option selected). Conclude with a visit to the Queen’s Hamlet and the Grand Trianon.
