Love our self-guided tour at The Opéra Garnier. We were there around 3 pm on a Thursday and the lineup was short and we are able to enter quickly. The experience was amazing!

Was beautiful and historic! I was so excited to go because I love the Phantom of the Opera. We did the self guided tour which I found somewhat confusing. I wish they would have had more signage pointing things out or explaining where to go. I felt as though we kept going in circles! I would suggest a guided tour if you want to see it all and not feel lost!

The self-guided tour with the pad for directions, pictures, and stories was great. We didn’t need to try and hear a personal guide over the noise in the rooms. Great option for this visit.

Jaw-dropping oppulence!

My family and I visited Versailles recently and loved the tour. What a treat to be able to walk where history was made! Every room, story and artifact was described well, but not so much detail that the tour got stiff or boring. The tour was just enough detail to keep us informed without overwhelming us. We loved the stories too!
