I had purchased this visit and all our (my wife and self) other visits to museums, monuments and events during our 5 days stay in Paris on line through this portal. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. No holdups in any form anywhere during any visit. This visit was very fulfilling and completely satisfying, mainly for history and culture lovers like both of us. I certainly recommend to use this portal for the bookings.
