STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCAM COMPANY. My partner and I arrived to the start location ON TIME to find the group had already left. Contacted the tour operator (city wonders) to only have them respond 2 hours later on how 'sorry' they are but that it's MY FAULT and should have been there 15 minutes earlier! Absolutely ridiculous. I am getting the transaction cancelled through my bank since they are REFUSING to refund me. Absolutely disgusting business practice. DO NOT BOOK AT THIS GARBAGE COMPANY.

Such an amazing experience! Our guide Flor - was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The day started out chaotic with the labour strikes in Paris happening but she kept us well informed and entertained while we waited.

Cool to see but guide was monotone, too much superfluous details made it boring. Should announce when leaving room

Skipping the line was a big benefit of this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable. She spoke quietly so as not to disturb people not in our group. This sometimes created a problem for myself because I am hard of hearing, but not a major issue. The gardens were beautiful.
