ParisCityVision Reviews

My friend and I really enjoyed the tour, and found our guide (Pascal) to be very knowledgable and informative. Skipped queues and saved time, taking in the Louvre, Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. It felt as though it saved us time, effort and money, so would definitely recommend to others.

Joel was our guide, and was prompt to pick us up from our hotel. We were with 6 other people in our tour - mostly from US. We had quite a good time with Joel talking about Versailles and the too many Louis kings and their wives, and the history of Versailles - how it came about from a hunting lodge to the magnificent palace it has. We were thankful to have chosen this small tour - as we would be have been exhausted if we had taken up anything more. The little glimpse at the gardens proved we needed to come back just for them again with a plan to conquer and the same has to be said about the palace. We were picked up at 13.30 an dropped back by 17.45 at Pont de Alma bridge (because we requested to be dropped off there) - which was very convenient for us to continue our trip plans
