I loved this trip. I really felt like I got a great adventure in Paris. Yannik our tour guide made the day as he was super knowledgeable and friendly. It was really wonderful seeing the city from so many different angles, from the bus to the river cruise, from up top the Eiffel Tower to inside the Louvre. I had such an awesome time. I felt in general that time was well spent. It's too bad that that you only get a few hours in the Louvre, but it's the type of place you could spend all day at and still feel as though that's not enough. The only stressful moment of the day was at the start when it felt like we were in a mad rush to catch our train as we had to wait in a long line for passport control and perhaps lucked out when a lovely King's Cross employee moved us to the front of the line to make sure we made our train. I would recommend this trip without a doubt.

I thoroughly appreciated having a guide for our day in Paris. Erlon did a great job explaining all of the sites. We were able to get right through into the Eiffel Tower and the River Cruise was a effective way to view many sites. As mentioned, plan accordingly for meal times as there was lots to see and do. We were able to grab a reasonably priced bite to eat at the Eiffel Tower. This tour was a great way to get a preview of Paris. We'll be back to explore further another time!

I found the tour very fun, educational and exciting. Our tour guide was very friendly as well. My only complaint is that they did not allot time for a meal. We were literally advised to "grab a quick bite" and perhaps eat while on the river cruise. The lines were long for food, thus, discouraging many to even bother. This caused many of us to go hungry and not able to make the most of our tour. I recall my tummy growling while on the river boat! The tour day starts very early, with most of us having to get up by 5am in order to make it on time. Other than that, it was nice to have guidance on where to go, what we're seeing and to be alert of pick-pocketers.

Very tiring, get to see quite a bit but very rushed. Sebastian was very good and patient with everyone. A lot of walking but worth it

A Euro train from London to Paris sounded like a great way to spend the day. And maybe it would be, but not on this Golden tour, perhaps the worst tour I’ve ever taken! The guide ,Erlon was difficult to understand and horribly uniformed. Our panoramic coach tour of Paris started in one of the dirtiest as poorest areas of Paris and he had little of interest to say about any buildings, neighborhoods or history of Paris.Next he took us to a tiny souvenir shop that was obviously owned by a friend or family member, where we had free time to buy these junky items. Then he gave us 10 minutes on the Eiffel Tower staging area, for photo ops. No history or background of this famous structure, he just dropped us off. Then, we went to the Eiffel Tower and again he just dropped us off , and let us wait almost 2 hours to get to the elevator up, I felt like we were a herd of cattle. It was just horrible. Then , hours later we went on a boat ride down the Seine to see the glorious buildings on the river bank, so huge and touristy and was unguided(WiFi tour guidance supposedly available through a provided headset didn’t work) that I felt again like I was part of a herd of cattle and didn’t learn a thing about Paris at all. Similarly, the last stop ,at the louvre he also just drop us off and we were on our own. Plus, there was no time for lunch at all, no experiencing the food and shopping in this glorious city. I can’t tell you how much I hated this trip with this guide, he dropped us off at train terminal 3 hours before it left, so we spent our last hours in a noisy , dirty train station looking for a place to sit! If you want this day in Paris experience, skip this golden tour and pick another company. At the end of the day, I was frustrated, exhausted, angry and starving.

The tour I'd rate 4 stars but the guide I'd rate a -5. I could write a short story as to how bad this guy was. Let's just say he was so bad that the four of us will think twice before booking anything again with Viator.
