And he loved it! We did the night tour which included Montmartre. We toasted with our champagne to everyone stopped at traffic lights next to us and it was great fun. The night lit monuments were marvelous to see. Our driver Martin was charming and knowledgeable. Only complaint - the car needed a brake job.

After reading many positive reviews, my husband and I were excited to take the Paris Authentic tour. We were only in Paris for three and a half days, so we did a lot of planning to make sure we would see everything that we wanted to. We thought that the Paris Authentic tour would be a great way to orient... More

An authentic old French Citroen, a really knowledgable & engaging driver (Jean) and a perfect night to see all the sights of Paris. The only thing we didn't like was we left it to our last night - should've gone on our first night. Great value, great fun and superb views to be had.

We thoroughly enjoyed this first introduction to Paris. We took a one hour night tour the day we arrived in Paris. The young man who drove the car was very knowledgeable. It is fun traveling around the streets in the glass enclosed car but you do realize that if you get hit by any of the speeding vehicles which seem... More

We enjoyed the 2 hour night tour with champagne. Our guide was friendly but did not offer much in the way of information. Paris at night is beautiful (of course), car was awesome, but the tour was expensive given the little amount of information/lack of tour. This experience is highly dependent on your guide.

The guide was disinterested. When we asked how he liked Paris he said "I don't, I've been here for 13 years." Perhaps then not the best job to have. He was preoccupied with traffic, and as other reviewers said it was more of a (very) expensive taxi. I wouldn't recommend this "tour".

I booked with this tour after seeing Rick Steves talk about it on his travel show. We chose to take the tour our first night in Paris as we were hoping to get a brief introduction to attractions around the city and a taste for Paris at night with a guide. It was one of the best experiences we had!... More

On Thursday 12th December 2013, together with my husband and my 4 year old son, we experienced the 2hr Paris by night tour via the Paris Authentic. Our driver was Carolina Peroni and she was simply amazing. She was waiting for us before the actual time we had to meet. She knows 3 languages...French, English and Italian and the way... More

I'm in Paris to visit my daughter. I thought this would be a fun tour to see the city of lights at night. The car tour was awesome. Carolina was our driver and she was an absolute delight. It didn't hurt that she was basically the same age as my daughter and the two of them hit it off immediately.... More

Took a 3 hour Paris evening tour. Granted it was raining. However, felt that the guide did not offer much history and drove in such a random manner that nothing felt connected. I have been to Paris many times so know the lay of the land fairly well but the tour was such a haphazard route we had no feeling... More
