Fabulous! The Paris Pass was great to have on hand during our trip. We only had 5 days, and with 3 children in tow, we wanted to keep things moving as much as possible. We would absolutely recommend utilizing The Paris Pass. In order to get the most out of it, I would encourage you to carefully look through the guidebook so that you can plan out a general guideline to follow for your trip to make sure that you are using all of the opportunities. Enjoy!

Fabulous! The Paris Pass was a great buy. Not just because for many sites there was no need to purchase any more tickets, but getting to the front of the line is essential for seeing everything you want and need to see. From the moment we picked up the pass, we began using the metro pass and that was so easy. Also, I purchased the Paris Pass online from the U.S. I was provided with great information about how and where to pick up the pass. That made the whole process fabulous!
