What people are saying about Petit Palais

The man who drove me around was honestly the best person ever. He stopped in all the signature places of Paris and help me take a stunning photos. I really appreciate it. I would definitely booked it again. I recommend everyone who is new to Paris to get this night tour. Worth every money.

The Batobus is a great way to get around some of the majpr sites of Paris. They stop quite early though if you go in the winter - around 4.30pm - but there are lots of seats & it was a very relaxing way to get from A to B.

Yeah, you should really do this. Sarah is a fantastic driver who puts the little car in places you wouldn't believe. Awesome time!!
