Bit of a problem finding the place, you would think that the main Paris Info office would be signposted better? Also one queue for everything, although a member of staff did call out for people collecting pre-booked tickets (as we were for the Louvre) & taken to her position on the counter; why not have a separate section for pre-booked...

I went to the tourist office to pick up pre-paid museum passes. Despite having stated which day I'd collect them, and this being confirmed by automated email, they initially denied all knowledge. We got things sorted eventually but they really weren't falling over themselves to be helpful. It really doesn't hurt to smile!

We pre-ordered the six day Paris Pass and picked it up at the Tourism Office on rue des Pyramides. The week in Paris flashed by, but one of the things I will recall with pleasure is bypassing the long lines at Louvre, D'Orsay, Versailles. . . This pass was the best money spent for the visit.

We purchased our three-day Paris City Passes and several train and bus tickets online, and then picked them up on our arrival at the Visitor's Bureau. Overall this was a convenience, but unfortunately there were some problems with our order. 1) One was caught in time, thankfully, by the cashier at the Pyramides Visitor Bureau, who noticed the mistake while...

Was going to be late and by the time we were told we couldn't go the following day...the trip had already started and there was no way we could have made it. $200.00 down the drain. Shame on you Paris info.

Information in many languages available outlining various activities and sights in Paris. This is a great stop on day 1 or 2 of your trip. You might just want to wander aimlessly near your hotel in day 1 to soak up the beautiful Paris atmosphere. Enjoy!

Rude Parisians, rude other tourists. Don't bother waiting in line--and if you are there to pick up your Paris Museum Pass, then you made a major mistake. If you are going to Louvre, then just buy it there. Finding this place is a nightmare. When you finally find it, just walk right up to the counter and the madame will... More

We bought tickets here for The Louvre, the Musee D'Orsay and several other places. It was our first stop once we arrived on Paris and it allowed us quick access without lines.

Excellent starting point to pick up a museum pass. Staff are fluent in many languages too. Pleasant and friendly as well. We found our agent to be helpful in recommending getting the metro ticket booklet in the metro to save a euro.
