Julian was an amazing guide, spoke perfect English and had a wealth of knowledge about Norte-Dames gothic architecture and the history behind it and France in general. Once inside Julian was extremely knowledgeable about the stained glass and all the different chapels within Notre Dame. The tour went be fast and we had a very dood time with Julian. He made the tour fun, informative and a highlight of our trip to Paris. Highly recommend.

This tour was meant to be one hour but our enthusiastic guide gave us ten more minutes. Our guide was entertaining and informative. There were only six of us, which was a bonus. I’d thoroughly recommend this tour which was also very good value for money.

We loved this tour. Our guide, Severine Cortines was amazing. We learned so much more by doing the guided tour then we would have on our own. The lines look really long but move amazingly fast. We highly recommend this to anyone going to visit Notre Dame.

Good - the tour itself was outstanding as the guide was very knowledgeable and enjoyable to spend time with. The cathedral itself is beautiful and filled with history.Bad - the instructions on finding the tour meeting place are awful. Calling the spot a coffee shop is laughable as numerous buildings in the area have the same name. Finding the exact address is very difficult especially if you don’t speak French.

We thought this time around, it might be a good idea to do a guided tour of Notre-Dame. Unfortunately we couldn't really understand our guide and when she tried to speak up, she was told to be quiet. It may have been a better idea to have electronic devices with head phones.

The guide came late. It was hard to find the spot where we were supposed to meet him and she was not that knowledgeable. You are better off reading something on Google or wikipedia ahead of your visit

We’re going to visit my family and I this morning and arrived at the meeting point. There was never a tour guide there. The café meeting point didn’t know anything about the tour. And I was traveling with a child with disabilities. We miss the tour completely and through numerous attempts of trying to contact viator via cell phone overseas I was never able to get through due to extended hold times. This was the third tour on a trip that have problems. I would never recommend using buy either. I was in the hospital something like t this was the third tour on a trip that have problems. I would never recommend using viator. I also sent several emails which they claim to not have any record of our reservations. I am assess of emailing back-and-forth with them now.
