Overall rating

I loved walking through the opera house! As someone who was a huge fan of Phantom of the Opera when I was younger, it was like a dream come true to get to be in the actual opera house the novel was based on and where part of the movie was filmed. I did not end up doing the Seine river cruise because unexpected plans came up instead.

The hopon hopoff is a great way to get around Paris and discover the pearls of Paris. It is a pity that the red and yellow lines no longer run and, for example, the Sacre Coeur is not accessible, but otherwise fine. The boat trip with Matteo as guide was also a real gift.

Bought a 2 day pass but I used it only for a day. It was still worth it. I ended up enjoy more walking once I knew where what is. Overall I had a great time, and the ride was worth it.

This was so beautiful. You cannot understand until you are physically there to walk the stair cases and see the artwork.

Beautiful pictures on the iPad. Easy to hear and follow instructions. Could go back and review.
