Off-the-Beaten Track in Paris: 2-Hour Vintage 2CV Tour
- Private group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 2 hours
The Paris pass is perfect for new tourists who haven't been to Paris before as it kind of organises and structures it for you. The guidebook has everything set up so that you are not having to do much work except picking what of the big list of attractions to do. I see a few people don't think it's worth the money as you can't complete anywhere near all the attractions on the list - we saw it as being money we paid for the organisation, skip the line options and choice. The bus tour is great but make sure you start it early; we were a bit dismayed at the fact that a lot of people get on and stay on for a whole circulation, rather than on and off at different stops, so does make it hard to get a seat up on the open top; if that really matters to you, you will probably have to wait. I would only recommend to those like myself who don't like to waste time and just want to get out there and do things, otherwise people who prefer to wander might feel they haven't got their money's worth.
Easy to book, immediate confirmation. The CityPass counter is easy to find and the lady there was nice and helpful. We took 11 of the mentioned Museums/Galleries/Attractions of the Paris city. No waiting in the lines, no troubles at all and you control your spending for the trips. The wine tasting is super recommended and worth 30e alone, but you should book it in advanced. Around the Louvre area you can take about 4-6 museums in one intensive day. If i knew before that some of tbe attractions (yet, few of them) are available only in a specific day i would make better planning. Best way to explore the city, Great value for money
Our driver Guillame took us to neighbourhoods that we would not have seen on our own. He was very knowledgeble about the history and architecture as well as the culture. He accommodated our desire to be let off in St. Germain and recommended a neighbourhood restaurant for lunch. Riding around in the vintage CV was great fun. I would (and have) definitely recommend this tour to others.
This was a surprise birthday present. We were met at our accommodation by an extremely knowledgeable, English speaking guide called Eric. He proceeded to take us on an "Off The Beaten Track" tour of Paris for two hours, although we started off in pouring rain it was a brilliant experience. The vintage 2CV had a completely perspex roof that gave us a great view of the buildings.
Great savings, fast access, nice attractions. Would be nice to have the opportunity to include transfer from and to the airport; also, the Eiffel Tower is not included. Everything else is great.
