Informative city tour with slight organizational weaknesses

The city tour with audio guide is well prepared and informative, and the content is also very nicely designed. The tour passes the main sights with the exception of Sacre Coeur. The actual tour is over after almost 90 minutes. However, since the trip is also the feeder for the participants, who then change to the boat, there is a longer waiting time at the end for the return to the starting point, during which nothing else happens and in which you learn nothing more. In addition, the accompaniment on the bus was rather moderate and not very flexible.

Absolutely fine for the price...

absolutely fine for the price. The journey itself took an hour, the return journey took 40 minutes, so there was a traffic jam and the return journey took 1.45 hours. Despite the traffic in Paris, you felt cared for by the driver. All stations as stated were approached. However, if you want to take a lot of photos, you should choose another bus tour to get off. This was enough for us.

Good way to get a first impression of Paris

This city tour is a good way to get a first impression of Paris. The value for money is okay. With the help of small headphones, which are included in the price, the sights are explained in different languages, including German. I did the approx. 11/2 hour city tour for the second time to show friends the city. Slightly different routes were taken. The second time, for example, the Bastille, City Hall or Boulevard Hausmann were not included. But there are many other important places in Paris, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, the Opera Garnier....
