    Rita our Tour Guide at Opera Garnier was exceptional in providing such an enchanting and engaging not to mention educational experience for us on this tour. What a valued asset she is! I would highly recommend this tour with her particularly to anyone.

    Four star only because of some instruction issue. It said pick up the tickets "across the ticket booth" but it is actually "pick up the tickets at the ticket booth". It costed some time to figure out where to pick up the tickets. Everything else was great about the tour

    Headout has a very easy booking process.

    Walk through the halls of the Opera Garnier with a guide and learn about the rich history of the attraction. At one time the Opera Garnier was described as the most famous opera house in the world. Shroud yourself in a spirit of greatness as you stroll through this memorable place and take in the many paintings and artworks on display.

    You will first visit the ‘Rotonde des Abonnes’ which was formerly used to welcome audiences to the opera. Here you will be able to spot the peculiar design language of Charles Garnier. Take in the arabesque design works as you get spell bound by the beauty of the welcoming hall. Next, you will meet the mysterious prophetess Pythia who will lead you into the auditorium, the loungers and the foyers. Take in the rich architectural works all around you and discover a wide array of paintings and sculptures on display at this theatre-cum-museum.
