Highly recommended. It was raining practically the whole trip, but they put us on a bus with the whole top part covered, for which, great

It was an unforgettable, magnificent experience, for my children it was the best gift of these Christmas and New Year 2023 holidays

I would recommend taking a mask with you, too little air for visitors, otherwise everything was too much.

I absolutely loved it. It was just the best. Probably the best thing I’ve done in Paris.

It was a perfect experience. I totaly recommend it
