Loved our tours! Both guides were friendly and knowledgeable, and very spirited. It was wonderful to wear our personal earphones (fwiw if you don't like earbuds, bring your own headphones for a better experience) and have the ability to wander around without needing to fixate on our guide. It was a great independent feeling and you could contemplate your surroundings in your own way. I really liked that part of CityWonders. I would definitely book through CW again and recommend them highly.

We had a great day on our Loire Castles and wine tasting tour. We had to meet at the Catacombs at 7.30 and we left on time. It was quite a drive to the first chateau which was great and our guide Caroline had everything arranged and gave us lots of information before we had a bit of free time. Then we drove through some lovely French countryside which included some interesting towns and villages. Wine tasting and lunch at the winery was lovely and plentiful. We had bread, salad, potatoes, cooked tomatoes and chicken. Then 2 cheeses and an apple flan. Wine was provided and coffee. It was delicious. We were guided around the winery by the owners and then a little more tasting. You could buy if you wished but there was no pressure to do so. We then went to the next chateau which was fantastic and you could taste wine there if you wished. Needless to say it was a quiet drive back with a bus full of sleepy people. Throughout the day our guide gave us lots of interesting information and Caroline was also very helpful with her cliental making sure everyone knew where they were going after our return. It was a lovely, relaxing day out which is often needed in busy travelling schedules. Obviously you feel you would like to have a lot longer at the chateaus to explore the gardens but they are a long way from Paris so takes a long time to get there. This is an opportunity to experience these places you can't do when you don't have a car. Also, thanks to our driver, he did a great job.

We enjoyed our tour to the Eiffel Tower. It was defiitely worth the price to skip-the-line, avoiding the chaos and long lines! Our tour guide was pleasant, not rushed and provided interesting info about the history of the tower as well as Paris, in general.

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!

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.
