    Funiculaire de Montmartre is a very convenient way to get to the top of Montmartre. However if you consider yourself fit, then you might like to climb the numerous steps to the top. We took the steps and it was a lot of fun. You can stop on the way if you wish! The views are incredibly beautiful, something you might miss if you take the funicular. In any case you can still enjoy spectacular views once you reach the top of the hill.

    I have to admit; as a solo female traveler new to Europe I was very nervous about using Paris metro. I read lots of horror stories online about pick pocketing on the Metro/RER, & almost cancelled my trip because of it. In retrospect I’m so glad I didn’t.

    I figured out the metro system pretty quick; it’s a very fast, inexpensive, & efficient way to see Paris. I ended up buying a Navago card; 10/10 recommend. It was good for a week; super cheap (I think it was $28). Pass allowed me unlimited use of metro and RER with Paris proper. The pass requires photo ID to be affixed to the card within 48 hours of purchase. I had color photo copies of all my documents, including my US drivers license, so I cut my photo ID, and it fit perfectly on the card.

    I also brought a tiny metro map which I discretely referred to a few times in the beginning to make sure I was going the right way. There are also large maps all over the metro stations as well.

    From a safety standpoint I saw only one attempted pickpocket. I educated myself quite a bit on how to identify them, what tactics they use, and how to protect myself.

    Pickpocketing is a crime of opportunity. I recommend leaving most cash/passports/cards in hotel safe. I brought my ID, one credit card, my phone, and no more than $100 with me each day.

    Avoid backpacks, and carrying luggage on Metro; that screams tourist. Also keep bling at home. Do not take your phone out on Metro while getting on or off in order to avoid it being snatched out of your hand. I used a cross body purse that was slash resistant, with a zipper that locked made by PacSafe. This purse was amazing, & pickpocket proof. It has all these separate compartments to keep your essentials safe, and also protects your credit cards from being hacked remotely.

    Overall I felt safe on metro; no one messed with me because I blended in with locals, and I knew exactly where my belongings were at all times. The only time I was a little nervous was when I took the wrong train and ended up towards St. Denis (north east), which is a sketchy part of town.

    Horrible Experience.. couldn't very worse

    I'll sue them , I waited from 5 am in chamonix while the weather was freezing cause my flight from Geneva was at 9 am and they DIDN'T SHOW UP !

    I took another company bus after waiting for more than 2 hrs and I was running at the airport pleasing everyone to pass me not to miss my flight ..

    Sent them an email and they replied we will refund and compansate you for this experience then they are not even replying to my email ..

    Don't ever try them and if you have a bad experience please contact me as this will help when I sue them.

    I would like to inform you about the "idiotic" behavior I witnessed from the 2 guys in the waiting area which are supposed to help people. They are completely unnecessary, they should get rid of them! I asked them more than once at what time the n.3 would have arrived and they always answered me <<...it's not here yet>> . i checked the screen more than once and I didn't see the 12pm bus arriving , I didn't know I had to step outside and wait on the curb so the bus probably left "behind" the 2 already parked and I didn't see it from the waiting area. The thing that got me furious is that when I asked the 2 guys <> they just laugh each other saying they didn't know. I also asked the n.3 bus driver who arrive at 1230 what happened to the previous bus and he faked he could not speak English exchanging some laughs as well with the 2 idiots standing by on the sidewalk. My compliment! Uber pool cost 30 Euro more, ...it's more comfortable, reliable.....and nobody laugh at you.........

    So I just jumped on at the start of the line and rode to the end to see what was there, the outer edges of the city. Very popular and useful means of public transit but a great way to see where people live.

    We arrived and left Paris at this station. Seems to be going through a major work of refurbishment. We found it chaotic and the signs were only just suitable

    No staff around to help and the info office was closed! A Thursday at 11am and it’s closed

    Saturday morning at CDG and the wait for two open tellers for the navigo pass is 45 minutes, plus. Efficient it is not. Hopefully the rest of the trip improves.

    We went to Paris for a week, we were advised by the RATP to buy a weekly pass, at no point we were advised of the requirements. Later that week, someone controlled our tickets and stated these were not valid because we did not put our picture on the pass( which we did not know).
    The person was aggressive and intimidating raising her tone with my wife and saying stop interrupting her and then telling me on a vey unprofessional tone “do you understand what I am saying!” (I am French, so I do) and said we would need to pay 35 euros per person now or 80 later. So we ended up paying 140 euros on the spot.
    We complained and all we are being told is a picture is required and notice of information are available in the station so it is our fault.
    This is poor customer service and they should provide necessary information when selling the pass, especially for tourists (Oyster card in London does not require a picture). What is more is when complaining I did raise the behaviour of the controller and nothing was mentioned as if it was an acceptable behaviour.
    I followed up with the client service team and now I am simply not receiving any response at all.

    This was a chocking experience as tourist and my children are still talking about the way that lady was talking to us. I will now think twice before considering spending holidays in Paris as that has tarnished our holidays.

    After a long overnight flight from overseas, it is so nice to have someone waiting for you with a sign to take you directly to your car and drive you directly to your Airbnb. You don't even have to think. We were so happy with the car, driver and experience, we used them to take us back to the airport at the end of our trip. The arrived a few minutes before our return pickup time so there was zero wait. Having someone happy to help with your luggage, and a clean spacious car, make life so much easier.

    We used this company for transfers from CDG airport to Disneyland and then for the return journey. The cars are spotless, drivers very professional and reasonably priced.

    Only slight negative I requested my granddaughter’s name was used on the board however it was my name on both journeys. Didn’t detract from great service but a bit disappointing that the request was confirmed via email. Would recommend.

    Great service, from airport straight to our hotel and back again. Very prompt, nice clean Mercedes mpv. Accommodating to group of 5 with 2 year old (baby seat) & 6 year old (booster seat).

    We had to make multiple amendments to dates and times due to Covid and when notified, we had responses within minutes confirming booking had been updated.

    Would highly recommend, and will definitely use next time.

    I did three transfers with Abi Transport in May 2022, and indeed it was perfect (between airports and aiport to hotel). Even with some long delays in my flights, the drivers are there and the communication is top notch, I felt comfortable and without stress or extra cost added to me. I was lucky that two of the transfers were made with Abi, the owner, and it's first class service, not cheap, but nonetheless, it's premium service. The cars are clean, comfortable and drived safe. I recommend without hesitation.

    Elegant Transfers is a great choice for anyone looking for a professional driver in Paris. My friends and I booked two trips with different pickup and drop-off locations for a wedding weekend outside of Paris. The Elegant Transfers team was communicative, and their driver was on-time and friendly. We didn't have to worry at all about transportation during a weekend full of changing logistics. Highly recommend!

    I used the service twice and both times the driver was on time (30min early) and both drivers very helpful with my bags. Both vehicles were clean and comfortable.
