Charlotte was wonderful. Very helpful and the nicest guide.
Booked this for our wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint. We had a delightful day in Paris travelling on the Eurostar and enjoying lunch on the Eiffel Tower, had a boat trip down the River Seine, drove around the city and did some shopping as well.
This was a decent tour, but we were really rushed and almost didn't make it back to the train to London on time it was extremely stressful waiting through the customs line wondering if we'd make it or not. We also didn't get to have lunch at the Eiffel Tower because it was closed that day and we weren't told until the last minute. They gave us a river cruise lunch instead. It was ok, but no comparison to lunch on the Eiffel Tower.
Tour was OK, but mared by fellow passengers who didn't return to the bus on time as the were shopping. This delayed the rest of us and didn't leave enough time at the other stops. Guides should be allowed to leave guests on their own if they can't follow instructions. However our guide was concerned about the missing travelers and opted to wait for them.
This was a great way to see a bit of Paris in one day. I would recommend that the tour mention an exact place to meet at the Euro train as we wondered around a lot trying to figure that out. The tour guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. We added on the Louvre for a little extra and of course we would have loved more time there, saw the highlights but that was all. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower definitely a high light. We were really glad we did this tour.
We truly enjoyed our day trip to Paris. Our guide, Charlotte, was very friendly and knowledgeable. I do not remember our driver's name, but he also did a wonderful job driving us around the streets of Paris safely. The sights and monuments were memorable. Unfortunately for us, the weather did not cooperate so due to high winds, we were not able to do the lunch in the Eiffel Tower however, we will be refunded that portion of our cost. Obviously, this was no fault of the tour company, and they did drive us around a very cute little area to find a place to have lunch on our own, which we really enjoyed, as it gave us more of a local flavor. The boat ride down the Seine was also quite beautiful and memorable. The train was late arriving due to weather, so we missed out on seeing some of the planned sights, and also had some difficulties on the return trip, as we departed from Paris about an hour late again due to weather issues but this was no fault of the tour company, and we will be receiving compensation for the inconvenience through Eurostar. Tip: listen for that announcement on the train if that should happen on your trip. Other than the unplanned delays, the Eurostar was very comfortable and we met some wonderful people on board. We were very impressed with the service of all the coordinating companies and would highly recommend the tour. It is a great way to see if you would want to do a more extended visit to Paris.
a wonderful Day !
The tour was good. Getting there needs improvement. On Saturday it is imperative that you only use a company that will book the 6 am train. The station in France is next to the busiest market on Saturday, we missed the morning Siene river cruise, had NO time for the Louvre. Gloria was excellent
The day was not as expected we did not get within a mile of the Eiffel Tower.
