Loved this tour
, Sep 2021
Absolutely worth the price to do this tour. We had a small problem finding the initial meeting spot, but once we were there everything was amazing! We loved being able to skip the line into the Louvre and being guided to the important works. The Seine cruise was nice and we got a voucher to hop on/off for 24 hours. We loved the Eiffel Tower and being able to go up to the second floor- really nice photo opportunities! I would recommend this tour to anyone who doesn’t have a lot of time in Paris

Great tour, hit all the spots
, Mar 2020
Was great but disappointed About the missing the cruise from the Louvre to the Eiffel tour due to weather. Was also disappointed we had not information about the Eiffel tour and were just sent up. We had so much information about the other sites it was just off. Maybe she forgot? I’m aware you can get audio guided but she could have just told us before we went up or I would have just paid and went there instead! Felt for the price it should have been more organized and they should have let you know that you end the tour at Notre Dame and not where the tour began.
A nightmare

My wife and I were highly disappointed because the Parisvision staff miscommunicated information whereby we missed our tour(we were placed in the wrong group which took us nearby Disneyland) and had to take metro train back to Paris. What an inconvenience

Worst tour ever.
, Feb 2020
One of the worst tours I’ve ever been on. We learned nothing about the different places. The boat ride was uneventful. Would definitely not recommend.

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 day

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.
Terrible Tour
, Oct 2019
I have taken many tours throughout Europe. After having a wonderful experience with Through Eternity Tours in Rome, I came to Paris with 2 friends and chose this full day (7 hour) tour because it was the best way for my friends to experience the city in 1 day. I stayed back due to a cold. When they arrived at the meeting point, there were only 4 people, so the guide decided not to use headphones. This proved a disaster in the Louvre where nothing could be heard. The guide was giving out inaccurate information about the paintings. A terrible time. On to lunch which was changed from the Eiffel Tower (because of renovation) to a boat ride. The 4 course varied menu we were promised now was a piece of live, a fish and some chocolate. There was no discussion and no chance to order from the menu- even if we wanted to pay! The guide didn't even stay on the boat. She was going to meet them later My friends ran from the boat and never looked back. Viator really blew it in this one folks. I will not be using them in the future.

Paris in One Day
, Oct 2019
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
Louvre, Eiffel Tower Lunch
, Oct 2019
Our guide through the Louvre was absolutely wonderful. It was raining the entire day, so it was difficult getting from the Louvre to The Eiffel Tower. Our guide had to leave us for another scheduled tour. We had a wait before our scheduled lunch. With all the security and crowds, The Eiffel Tower was not enjoyable compared to years in the past. The lunch at The Tower was wonderful.
, Oct 2019
A great day with a great guide! We got to see all of the big things we wanted to see during this enjoyable day. Even with a bit of rain and wind the guide made it a fun day and looked after us so well.
