We had planned to get advanced tickets to the Eiffel Tour and were late. This tour solved the ticket problem and also covered our usual intro to a new city. We find a bus tour overview makes detailed sightseeing much smoother. This tour covered that also. It was a little more expensive than I would usually pay for the overview plus the tower tickets but I paid it to avoid the lines at the tower. It worked for us.


We loved the Eiffel Tower.

good value. learned a lot about Paris

Elizabeth Hayob

We had a tour booked for a bus tour of Paris, and skip the line for the Eiffel tower. We totally did not look on our tickets as where to meet the bus, and missed it by 5 minutes. The front desk helped us and got us to meet the tour right outside the tower. We were able to still skip the line and had a sunset view of Paris on the second level of the tower. Great memories!
