    Excellent experience guide was great

    This is well worth the money the guide made the experience of the visit much better.

    Tour guides were pointless. Learned very little and often info was incorrect. Disorganized.

    Very brief explanation of l’arc de triomphe.

    Very brief explanation of l’arc de triomphe. No explanation of plaques laid inside the arch behind the unknown soldier. Too little tour for too much money. And no explanation of the displays we found at the top of the arch. Ugh. No expert.
