Nice tour with recorded audio guide. I liked the concept. If you go on the top deck of the bus when the weather is cold, the seats on the front near the windows should be less cold (they were taken when we did the tour). I would plan this in the beginning of your visit, as it gives you a nice overview and an idea of what you would like to see later.

L'expérience en bus était super on passe dans tous les endroits touristiques de la capitale c'est vraiment sympa ! La visite guidée sur smartphone complète bien l'experience, les commentaires des guides sont intéressants et l'application est très simple d'utilisation. Je recommande fortement

The sites are worth seeing, however, the “skip-the-line” ticket does not actually allow you to skip the line. We queued for 25 minutes which is okay, but don’t sell your tickets as such. Just call them entry tickets.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to know about Notre Dame and the places around there. Our guide, Lea, was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Our guide was fascinating Thank you to Bertrand vacher for the quality of his explanations and his availability
