The good part of the Team’s assistance was to accommodate us when we arrived close to the departure deadline. That was appreciated. However the very disappointing aspect of the tour was that the commentary was effectively inaudible where we were sitting on the top deck of the bus. We noted that this difficulty was shared by other participants and concluded it was simply inadequacy of the transmitter/receiver used to convey the commentary. This conclusion was confirmed when we alighted from the bus during the tour of Notre Dame when there was no problem with hearing the commentary.

Paris was created some 2,000 years ago and began at the City Island (Ile de la Cité). This tour captures the "Soul of Paris." With emphasis on the history and art of the Capital, this tour includes:

  • A tour of the heart of the capital city by bus (Place Vendôme, Bastille, Latin Quarter, Saint-Germain)
  • The Latin Quarter and the Sorbonne
  • The Luxembourg Gardens
  • Saint-Germain des Prés, with its old church and famous cafés
  • A guided visit of the interior of Notre Dame Cathedral
  • A short transfer by boat to approach the Cité Island (unless the river is too high) and Notre-Dame by Batobus (or in a minibus).

In case of Sunday mass at Notre Dame, the guide will describe for you the beautiful facade with its three portails, but the tour will not be allowed to travel inside the Cathedral.
