A Recent Review of this tour

Romain was fantastic and the tour exceeded our expectations. We had our two sons - age 11 and 8 - with us. Romain went out of his way, by request, to cater the experience to them. He kept them engaged and interested for three hours. We highly recommend this tour not only for its content, but also because it truly does allow you to bypass lines and walk right in. Five stars!
