They give their opinion

While our guide was wonderful and made the experience easy and enjoyable, the bus ride situation was a bit unpleasant. First off, the driver arrived and there was no WiFi on the bus and all the USB ports didn't work, so no one had the capability to charge their cameras or cell phones in order to use them for picture taking or communication use as promised when purchasing the tour. We felt that the drivers and PARISCityVision should have made sure these items are always checked every night at the end of the last tours and every morning before the beginning of the days tours to ensure they live up to company standards and promises. Then, we had the unfortunate event of a passenger throwing up all over the aisle during our long ride making several of us feel very nauseous due to the smell on board. We expected it to be cleaned once we arrived back to the bus hours later. Instead the driver never cleaned up the vomit. One of our guides must have asked for a bucket and mop from the castle and cleaned it up last minute as we boarded the bus. While we realize ill passengers aren't the company's fault, there should be standard items on board every bus for these moments and act with a sense of urgency to make the guests feel the monies they've spent are worth spending on PARISCityVision.
