Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 3,564 reviews

The only thing I didn't pay attention to was booking the times… many tours require a pre-booking. Of course it's my fault But just to leave a tip here And the Tower only gives the right to visit by the stairs. Elevator we had to pay another 17 Euros each to go up by elevator.

Good experience. The guide was fun and knowledgeable. Don't go expecting a deeper understanding of history, because that's not the point. Do to forget the water.

The advance ticket certainly made things a lot quicker and easier, and the flexibility for the musee d’orsay timing was convenient

The pass was very worthwhile AND it allowed us to go to the front of the line for all museum entries.

Skipping line and seeing both museums was a delightful experience
