We are travelling to Paris for the first time in May. We are pretty self sufficient and wanted the freedom to explore and not be tied down to a tour group/time. We do want to take a Seine cruise at night and will go to all the "usual" sites.
I am curious to know how many people took a structured city/boat tour? I was just going to go to Paris and if a tour looked really good then book it there. Are there any advantages of booking a tour before I leave? Also, most people on this board seem to be totally self sufficient as well. If I don't take a tour, would I be missing something?
