“Eiffel Tower Tour - skip the line”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Very easy to find the City Wonders office for the start of the tour. Our guide was friendly and very informative. As part of the tour, we got to enter through a separate area away from the HUGE line. That alone was worth the money we spent. Our guide pointed out the major sites and gave us some very interesting background and information about the city. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has never been to Paris and would like an introduction with the best view in the city!

“City Wonders Versailles Tour recommended great time saver”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Went on the palace and gardens tour with City Wonders and glad we did as the guide was great and we saved so much time waiting in lines. The line to buy tickets just to get in was about an hour or more long, then the line for tickets for the gardens was about 30 mins- so including not having to also line up for entrance and security we saved about 2 hours of doing nothing. If you are going to spend the extra and do a any one tour rather than do it yourself I recommend this one.

“Terrific Tour”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

The City Wonders Tour of the Louvre was very well done. The meet-up was easy, the listening devices assured that we got everything we could get from our wonderfully knowledgeable and charming guide, Raphael. We were able to book the tour at the last minute (a real life saver) and went on a Wednesday evening. They say this is the time to go because the crowds are so much thinner -- but, in August at least, even then there were hordes of people. Our guide held the interest of both of our teen grandchildren (13 and 15) who really knew very little about the art before we entered the museum. We had been worried about how they would manage 2 1/2 hours, but it was not a problem at all. They loved it as much as we did.
