We picked up the pass at the meeting point office providing our reservation from Get Your Guide app. We headed straight to the bus and did the full tour first, later we used the hop off/hop on to visit some of the attractions. On the second day we used the museum pass for other attractions. It was good value for money. For the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Versailles we got skip the like tours and I am glad we did as we tried to use this pass for Arc du Triumph and the line was huge. It looked like it moved pretty fast but we just didn’t have the time so I recommend getting skip the line tours for these 4 major attractions.

The pass is very valuable and gives a lot of possibilities and flexibility. Minus: clear guidelines regarding the reservation for a specific time slot for activities for which this is not possible via the pass (but can be done via the website of the activity itself). It turned out that it was not necessary to reserve a time slot for these activities and offering the Paris / museum pass was sufficient. So there was certainly the convenience on site, but I found this more unclear via the website.

Because we had this pass, we could visit three museums. Finding the pickup address was a bit tricky, but it was because we didn't know Paris.

The pass is very worthwhile and covers a number of interesting exhibits. It has a helpful map built-in as well.

The pass was very useful for looking around the city. The staff were very nice and efficient
