The tour itself is fine. Spoken text sometimes stutters. Note that it will take you 2 to 3 hours if you make a round. So you can't do a full circle first and then do something else. Decide in advance where you want to go and then get out there and see the rest as a bonus. We wanted to go to the Louvre, but it was never open on Tuesday. They should have recorded that on the tape because they also did that at another museum.

This was the perfect first day in Paris experience. The rest of our week we will be seeing many of the places we didn’t have time to stop and explore. Now we know what we want to see and how to get there. The audio was well done and helpful. Thanks

Weather couldn’t be helped ( torrential rain ) but hadn’t realised until later that we were supposed to collect our earphones on the bus which were in a box X we got them Half an hour into the tour, we were also not provided with a map . We still enjoyed the tour which covered a vast area of Paris even if the commentary was a little strange !
