My 9 year old daughter and I went on the Monet tour and loved it. With reference to the documentation, it ticks all of the boxes because it is exactly what is advertised. To sit on the Seine, having a picnic lunch, and then biking leisurely down the flat bike track was delightful. As we are avid photographers the garden intrigued us enough that we ended up going back again two days later. There was a nice spread of ages in the tour; my girl being the youngest but also had the most energy! It is a fairly easy ride so it is a great trip all round.

There were a couple of things we would have changed, one that the company has no control over! It does get frustrating waiting for people who don't arrive on time; it certainly wastes time waiting for people to come back to connection points on time. Secondly, it would be a better idea to collect the group in and explain things as as a group. Sometimes instructions were given to the people in the front, but the people in the back couldn't hear and had to guess what we had to do.

Yes, we would love to do more tours with this company as what you read about is what you get. Great work, Fat Tire Bike Tours.

We did two easy pass tours, one was at the Louvre one was at the Eiffel tower. The Louvre tour was really bad. Guide was rushed and when i asked questions just said he did not know. He was totally boring and half the people left early because he was such a drone! At the end of the tour I asked if that was it (i was glad we were done with him, but it had not been two hours) and he told me the tour started late because some other people arrived late and so he had to cut it short. We were there early though so this did not seem like a good answer to me.

Eiffel tour was better because the guide was nice and engaging. She did a great job keeping everyone involved and interested and it was great to skip the line! Info was good and I was glad we did this tour. Unlike the Louvre guide who seemed like a disinterested sub-contractor, the Eiffel guides seems to actually work for easy pass tours.

Wife and I visited the Eiffel Tower recently, at the peak of tourist season. Our motivation for buying "Skip the Line" tickets was entirely to do just that - skip the lines. They really were crazy long and we didn't want to devote the better part of an entire day to waiting in line to get tickets and then again to get on an elevator. This tour eliminated that problem completely. Definitely more expensive than other alternatives but worth every penny. If you want to see the Tower and don't want to make it an all-day event, this is a great way to go.

All that said, we had pretty low expectations about the tour itself. But we were pleasantly surprised. Our tour guide was a young American guy, Paul, who was very knowledgeable about the Eiffel Tower itself and about Paris in general. We actually learned a lot. From the second floor of the tower, he walked us around the entire tower and pointed out and explained all the various landmarks that we were visible from that height (which is pretty much all of Paris). Would've been worth the price just to skip the lines. The fact that it was actually a good tour was just icing on the cake.

My wife, mother-in-law, and I toured the Eiffel Tower with EasyPassTours (we actually booked through Viator) in early July - it was our first visit to Paris, so a trip to the Eiffel Tower was a MUST. We were not interested in standing in line (anywhere) during our relatively short stay in Paris. We were very impressed with the organization, knowledge, and friendliness of the EasyPass guides. Our particular guide, Anya, spoke perfect English and French, and was a wealth of knowledge not only about the Eiffel Tower, but also about Paris in general. Her passion and sense of humor really made for a memorable 2 hour visit to the worlds most visited momument. Highly recommended for first time visitors to Paris or if you have never seen the Eiffel Tower. We would explore other EasyPassTours during our next Parisian voyage! Merci beacoup!!
