This was a good tour to get an overall view of the city being that this was the first time. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was a wonderful experience. Overfall it was a good deal.

This is a very nice tour along the Seine although it was hard to hear some of the narration on the audio unit I didn't have earplugs with me and I found it incredibly awkward to hold the audio unit to my ear - it kept sinking back into its cradle - and take pictures as the boat cruised along. The coach tour of the city was great and the Eiffel Tower lunch was awesome although we didn't really have time to enjoy the views because we had to move on to the next part of the tour. I had enough time to take a very short staircase down to a lower level we originally went up to the first level where the restaurant was and got some great shots but if there had been enough time I would have liked to at least have gotten to the second floor or maybe, dare I say, get to the top. But even at the first floor you are still up there and the views are still great so I felt satisfied. If you buy an additional ticket for one of the other attractions while you are there, you get a discount. I bought one for Madame Tussauds - a huge, very crowded place. Tip: The river cruise is not included in the tour timeline. You get a ticket for it but you go after the tour is over. I had no idea of this so it created a bit of a problem since I had a ticket for an event later that evening. You pick up the cruise right there at the Eiffel Tower so it's convenient but leave open time in your day to do it so you don't need to go back another day!

This tour encompassed a great tour of the French capital, u fortunately our driver/guide had a basic command of English so a lot of what we saw remained a mystery. However we enjoyed the day, the weather was good, the scenery magnificent and we guessed the translations.

The tour was great. We were unlucky that there was a lot of thick fog and so the views from the Eiffel Tower weren't the best. There was flooding in the city and so we could not enjoy our river cruise. Our guide was exceptional.

The driver had some problems with his English but nothing that hurt the tour. We were disappointed by the river cruise because the tour head phones did not work and we hear about what we were seeing. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was good and the driving tour around Paris was good.

This tour was pretty much exactly as described. Pick-up at our hotel was on time and our driver/tour guide did a good job of describing the points of interest and history of the various areas we visited. We especially enjoyed the tasty lunch and views at the Eiffel tower as well as the chance to explore inside Notre Dame cathedral. The Seine River cruise offered an opportunity to see parts of the city from a different perspective. If you're only in Paris for a short visit, this tour provides a good overview of this beautiful city.

This is by far the best choice I made during my visit to Paris. Fred, the driver was so knowledgeable and friendly, he made it a lot of fun. You'd be surprised at how many relatives he has living and working in Paris. By arranging all of the noteworthy places to tour the lunch at the Eiffel Tower the River Cruise, he made it all happen like clockwork and it was totally delightful. Thank you for your delightful and efficient City Tour by Minivan. I loved it. Harriet Wenger Bradenton, FLorida

I was extremely pleased with this tour. I didn't have high expectations but the guide went above and beyond. Manuel was friendly and informative. Highly recommended if you're in Paris for a short period of time and you want to get the most of your stay.

Bad experience became no one came to the hotel to pick us up enthough we have been waiting 45 minutes before the pick up time. We ended up in going hop on hop off sight seeing and see nothing. We spent a lot of money for air ticket and hotel in Paris but saw nothing.
