The food at the EIffel tower restaurant was very disappointing and they need to improve especially as it is a landmark . The bus and river cruise were brilliant .
I enjoy the view on the Eiffel Tower and their delicious lunch. As well as, I learn a lot about Paris on the hop on and off bus and the cruise.
The hotel and I both tried to call the supplier the day before to confirm my reservation, which had been made weeks before. The supplier would not answer the phone. Finally, Viator was able to make contact with the supplier, who told me to show up for lunch at 8:30 am. When told that would be crazy, he said to show up at 11 am. We did, but we were told to come back at 12:00 because the supplier had overbooked. One poor customer, who had several guests with him, had his reservation cancelled. My advice is to avoid Viator unless there are absolutely no other options.
The Eiffel Tower/lunch was very nice, but getting there was a nightmare! Not knowing which line to get in, and having no one around to ask made us late for our reservation. Better instructions are badly needed. The River cruise was fine, but the River was too high so we were not able to pass under the last bridges to see Notre Dame, but this was not the tour to blame. The Bus tour was a bust, because it started pouring, so everyone got on the bus and we could not sit, see, or hear anything, so we got off without seeing any of the sights.
This tour was amazing!
