Great day tour. Fit a lot of the top Paris sites into one day and Anna was amazing. She had a wealth of knowledge about the history of Paris and was able to navigate the group so well that everyone felt like she was their own personal guide.

This is a great way get a one-day snapshot of Paris. It was very helpful being met by guides at the Eurostar and being driven around the city. The bus tour was informative and interesting and between that and the river cruise, you see the highlights. We did optional lunch at the Eiffel Tower - going up into the tower is always worth it. Lunch was good, although overpriced (Madame B) and that's not the tour company's fault. If you have kids, save money and don't buy them food at the Eiffel Tower restaurants if you can avoid it! The tour just takes you to the first level for lunch, so if you want to spend more time on the Tower this tour won't work (again, not their fault, it's just how they do it). If you don't the lunch, there's a few hours to do what you want. The hour river cruise was a nice, chill way to see Paris and you can do it anytime during the tour's open time block. We made a quick stop at the Louvre -- no time to actually see the museum but that's not possible without a lot of time. It was fun being there when it was lit up towards the end of the day. We looked at a few shops in the underground mall and went to the Christmas market nearby. Paris was chilly and crowded but it was a great time of year to visit and this tour was a good way to get a quick look. Anna the guide was great -- hopefully she's your guide if you book!

Pros: (1)Anna was a great tour guide handling a large group of all ages and navigating unpredictable circumstances with grace. She was quite witty and humorous despite the group being a bit lackluster with their responses at times. (2) I had a great time seeing popular sites especially from the river cruise and then walking around the gardens of The Louvre. (3) Transport was provided to and from the train stations. Anna did a wonderful job making sure people were safe and got through security. Cons: (1) Sadly, I didn’t think dining at the Eiffel Tower was worth it. The experience was nice seeing the tower up close and riding the elevator, however the wait to sit was long despite having a reservation. Additionally the food was underwhelming and slightly cold. I didn’t have a problem with the contents of my dishes, but others in my group expected to have meat and more. I suggest that tour guides be clearer about which menu the group is getting since there was confusion. At the start of the trip I was only asked about food allergies. I think people would have felt more at ease if they had a better understanding of what to expect during the dining experience. (2) The instructions I received for the morning were confusing. The company had people meet in front of the cafe as described. However La Vacanza Travel had instructions that one must use the voucher provided to redeem tickets. That was very confusing because it made it seem like I needed to go to a kiosk or see someone at a counter. The company should request La Vacanza Travel to remove that instruction. Tips: (1) Therefore, just go to the cafe to pick up your welcome packet with tickets. I did a Saturday tour with a 06:30 meet up even though we didn’t disembark till 08:00. The person handing them out is there for an allotted time, so please be punctual. You will have time to grab food/ drinks before or after going through security. (2) The trains have USB ports, outlets, Wi-Fi, and bathrooms. (3) If you’re nervous about going alone, don’t be. In the city center, most if not all can speak English. Plus you’ll meet other travelers and can explore together. (4) The train stations and other popular tourist spots have hagglers and some sketchy people like any other big city. Just be smart and keep your valuables close to you or better yet on you like an inside zipper pocket. Don’t let people persuade you to join a street game ; it’s a scam. (5) Be prepared for a long day!
