First Time Touring in Paris
"Excellent way to get to see Paris and the highlights. Three separate routes that covers most of the highlights. Buy the combined night tour/day pass especially in December to see the lights of the season.
Has good narration in many languages. Drivers are friendly and helpful. Be aware that the evening tour does have an assigned date and we were unable to change the date to better serve us. Unless we had asked at the main office at the beginning of the Red/Blue line, we would not have know.
We were fortunate that there was a stop right outside our hotel in the Republique district. Buses ran about every 1/2 hour."

Great tour
Was approached by a staff named Gerard outside the Eiffel Tower. He explained everything very well, showed us how to do everything, and was clear and thorough. I took the tour with my family and it was great. Hop on and off anywhere there's a stop in Paris. Much cheaper and more effecient than taking the metro or taxis. It stopped at all major sites and if you do the 1 day pass plus the boat tour you won't be disappointed!
