Driver was very considerate and often slowed down so we could get pictures. Only had a short time to eat lunch in an upscale shopping mall food court which took up valuable time. We did have a little time to shop the street vendors right outside the mall. I would recommend going outside and getting a sandwich and then shop. Read Less

We took the bus to Paris to tour on your own Just the transportation was provided to get to Paris and back to the ship. We did not leave on time so it limited our time in Paris. Our whole purpose was to see the Eiffel Tower and that was done. Yahoo The lateness of the bus was not due to the bus company, but us being able to leave the ship to go to the bus. All in all the bus company did extend our time in Paris by 15 more minutes which was precious time. Read Less

We took the tour with the boat ride, and are glad we did, because that was the main sightseeing we were able to do.. We didn't get the 3 hours on land, due to traffic and the wait for the boat. We only got about 1.5 hours, and there was barely time to eat a very late lunch. We also didn't get parked close to Place de la Concord and had to go to the expensive Champs Elysees area to eat; but the meal was really great French food, and so a part of our experience. The guide and driver were both very good and helpful. We had a stop mid-way for a bathroom break, where food and coffee were also available. Since Paris is so far away, I don't regret using an organized excursion for our first foray into the city. Read Less
