It was easy to redeem this voucher at Orly Airport. We could buy it when we arrived and use it at the end of the trip. It covered our costs, but the advanced entrance was the best part. I also went into the crypt at Notre Dame because it was included and I really enjoyed it. without the pass, I wouldn't have gone.
Totally worth it, even just to skip the long lines at some of the more popular museums. Be sure to check opening and closing days and times. I was able to visit 6 museums in two days using the pass, but it would be worthwhile just to avoid the long lines at the louvre and the Musee de Orsay.
Great way to skip the line!
Paris has so many interesting paces to see, but we definitely wanted to see some of the museums, and of course Versailles. It was good to be in Paris in September - the crowds were much smaller than in the summer. Even so, going to the Louvre one day and Versailles the next were on our list of must sees. The cost of multiple days was better than purchasing the tickets individually and skipping the lines was still a good thing, even though the lines weren't as long as some times of the year. And those two places took a day each - being so immense in their treasurers.
We did end up seeing another few museums on another day, but it wasn't going to be a consecutive day so we didn't buy a larger pass, just paid for those two museums together when we went, and once again, it was good to get a multiple pass because of the rather long lines but that's another story.
Well worth the $!
Do this! This is worth the cost and will help get you past lines
This pass was terrific and allowed us quick entrance to all museums on the list. Getting the pass was not so easy at the airport, upon arrival, but we realized that the pass was available for purchase at the Louvre and would recommend getting it there instead of ordering on line and picking it up at the airport It didn't seem necessary to purchase the pass in advance on-line.
Note, if you go in summer, despite the fact that you have a seperate entrance for pass holders, it can be a long wait
Useful if you are in Paris for a week or at least more than 2 days, there are so many museums it is unlikely you will see it all in one or two days. I was just happy we got Skip the line access to the Louvre and it was absolutely amazing and well worth the cost of the the pass.
Really didn't save us much time nor money. At the Louvre the line for having a pass was longer than the line for buying tickets took us over an hour just to get inside, very frustrating. The only place we really bypassed a line was at the Musee d'Orsay. Wasn't worth the cost considering we barely saw any of the places covered by the pass because we spent so much time waiting in line, the cost of just buying tickets at the places we went would have been less than this pass. Really disappointed since we bought this pass in order to save time.
