Then, enjoy a scenic cruise on the Seine River. Take photos and hear the interesting commentary as you glide by landmarks such as where Notre Dame Cathedral stands, and drink in the riverside sights.

If option selected, head for the world-famous, 19th-century Eiffel Tower, Paris' most iconic monument, for your delectable lunch. Show your priority-access ticket to avoid any long entry lines, and ascend via the elevator to the chic 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant, located on the first floor.

Disappointing and costly experience
Anonymous
, May 2022
We originally booked a Paris day trip in February. This excursion was cancelled in April. I booked a different Paris day trip, and it was cancelled May 5. Our trip to London with the day trip to Paris was May 15 - 22. I had to schedule the excursions myself. We didn’t get our refund until the day we left for our Paris day trip. I emailed Viator 3 times before I got any response. Needless to say, this was very disappointing and costly. I will not be using Viator again.

Trip was cancelled the evening before our travel and the next available trip was weeks away. Would have been the highlight of our vacation but it was a no go. The trip operator should improve their communication efforts.

Disappointing Trip to Paris
Julia_M
, Mar 2020
Elements of the tour were excluded without prior notice, which was disappointing. BEWARE IF YOU HAVE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS OR ALLERGIES!! There was no place to put a dietary request. I have been a vegetarian for over ten years and I ALWAYS add that information when I can. The fact that a severe allergic reaction could have occurred is also a huge issue. If my friend had consumed shellfish, which was on one of the dishes she was supposed to get, we would have had to go to the hospital. Luckily I noticed this and she was ok, but it should not have even been a risk. They also were supposed to be giving me vegetarian items but the first dish was made of gelatin (hooves/animal product) and the second had beef broth in it. There was NO place for us to add this information since were supposed to be able to order what we wanted, but the itinerary was changed that day unannounced to us. We had no time to bring our own food and, because our guide was not staying with us where we ate, were unable to communicate well with the staff to make sure we received what we needed. Viator has TERRIBLE customer support and refuses to give compensation for this issue and will not even entertain it, not will the tour company this trip is booked with. Find a different Paris trip to go on if you can.

Charlotte, our tour guide, was amazing! She was very intelligent with what she was telling us. She was really funny and cool to be with! Charlotte brought us to the Eiffel Tower and told us a bit of there history. She seemed to care about us and the other people. Our group was on the boarder line of being cancelled due to the little amount of people. (7 but 3 cancelled) One negative was the food on the cruise, they didnt give us options and I dont like duck. But overall it was amazing, the trip was a life changing experience for me! I want to come back and live there!

It exceeded our expectation, the lunch that was provided in lieu of the Eiffel Tower lunch was more than enough. There was good food, wine flowing, live entertainment and the boat was clean. Our tour guide Anna was very informative and so protective to the group. Excellent !!!!

Day trip London to Paris
Donald_B
, Oct 2019
Trip was fun and informative. It is NOT a trip to fully participate in the Paris scene. It is a trip that is held together by an experienced and informative tour guide. Ours, Charlotte, was wonderful. A comfortable bus tour around the city center of Paris. Included was a delicious meal.....with as much wine as you wanted....on the River Seine, a stop on two different sides of the Eifel Tower, and time around the Louvre. Plenty of time is allowed for border control, security checks, and train boarding. The guide kept everyone on time and together. It was a long day but a very memorable one.

Hard to do Paris in a day trip
Kathleen_W
, Oct 2019
Anna was a great guide. She was witty and attentive. There were a few glitches in the trip, but Anna was there to see us through. A day trip was just hard for Paris. But gave us a nice taste of it. Also the Eiffel Tower restaurant is closed right now. So we didn’t get a champagne lunch.

Disappointed

This trip was a poor value for us. It might be right for someone who cannot get around well, but it was difficult to find our guide at the London train station. She should have had a sign to hold up as there are many groups collecting at this location and many people asking each other how to find their tour. Bus ride in Paris did a poor job of showing the sites as you only got a glimpse looking down a street between buildings for many of the sites, guide was hard to understand. Boat tour was even worse because our group was seated in the center rows of tables which made sites difficult to see. There was no guide pointing out the sites or providing any information at all. Overall, this tour was a very poor value for us and I would not recommend it. It was a huge disappointment for us as well as other people we spoke with in the group.

Birthday in Paris
DandDH
, Oct 2019
We booked this tour for my birthday and I looked forward to a champagne lunch on the Eiffel Tower to celebrate. The restaurant is undergoing renovations and can not be used from September 1 2019 to Feb 29, 2020. We were going on a Seine River cruise instead. I think we saw many more iconic buildings on the cruise, and we were pleased with the alternative. The lunch was good, and the waiter stuck a candle in my dessert and began singing Happy Birthday and everyone else joined in! Seeing Paris was wonderful. The bullet train was also part of the experience. Our tour guide Charlotte was great. We would recommend this tour.

The one star was only because I actually got to Paris!! From start to finish this tour was nothing I expected... To begin with finding the guide to check in with at 6 am was difficult. Approximately 40 people asking each other where to start, finally finding representatives(not holding signs or wearing tags to identify a company) to find out you were in the wrong line!! Train ride was nice, but upon getting to Paris our bus guide continually yelled at us where to stand... treated like an elementary student on a field trip. Eiffel Tour restaurant was under renovation, so lunch was on the river cruise. The bus drove around for thirty minutes attempting to find boat while the guide jumped on and off to see where we should go. Boat cruise was beautiful, lunch was ok, but it was at this time we found out we would not have time to go into the Eiffel Tower(even though part of the tour was admission to Eiffel Tower). So we ran to get to the base of the tower only to have to turn around to run back to bus. Went to the Louvre and were told our guide would give us a tour, he disappeared. We had about 75 minutes at the Louvre, spent 30 minutes trying to find the Mona Lisa to find out it was moved and the wait was over 45 minutes, so another let down. Get back to our group to find out that a patron who was very vocal was able to get the guide to get him into the Mona Lisa. Over all our group of four spent over $1200 to experience none of the featured tour highlights. I would not recommend this to anyone!!!

The train ride was great with breakfast and then dinner on our return. Wished it would have been longer. The tour guide, Charlotte, was very informative and very pleasant. The lunch on the river was one of the best we have ever taken. Even the food was good. The visit to the Louvre was a bit rushed. We were not able to see the Mona Lisa and did not have the time to peruse the gift shop and buy souvenirs. Over all, it was a wonderful trip.

Need more time at the tower
judybruce2019
, Sep 2019
This tour was supposed to be an all day/evening about spending time in Paris, more time around the Eiffel tour. We found out the meal was cancelled in the tower as we were booking this but assured we could still spend time there. We had a quick stop where we were rushed for not even 10 minutes then told to get back in bus. We later stopped again for pictures only because our tour guide felt bad that we didn't have more time. We were never able to walk around it, up to it or go in as there were many people in the tower and up at the viewing deck. They put us on a lunch cruise that although the water was nice, the service was awful..neither my husband or I drink wine and so we ordered tea..the waiter was very upset, and after several more requests to bring hot water he completely ignored us, refused to bring us anything. The food was not good at all and again when we asked about it they were in such a hurry they kept ignoring us. You could tell we were there at the last minute and they were not happy about it. We were dropped off at the mall and had a little over an hour to walk around and wait for our tour operator. We came to see Paris not a mall, we didn't have enough time to get back to any of the historical places to take pictures or spend more time. I felt bad for our tour operator because she really tried and she was quite nice, however the whole tour was not as it was sold. It was cur short early, and we returned to London very dissappointed. It definately was not worth the money that we spent on this tour.
