    The English guide was wonderful and punctual. The tour was really informative. It brought us to the first level of the auditorium which only guided tours have access. The public can go to the boxes slightly further from the stage. The instructions on the voucher were very clear.

What To Expect

The Palais Garnier, also known as Paris' Opera Garnier, is France's foremost Opera House and a site of some of the greatest theatrical and operatic performances in the world. Considered as one of Paris' greatest treasures, the building is a marvel of carefully preserved architecture and design, and to this day stands as a breathtaking testament to the artistry of Paris. An extremely well-versed and expert guide will accompany you on this 90 minute tour to learn of the rich history of this opera house and to hear the stories that echo from its walls. You will hear about its most important historic events as well as the most significant personages that have crossed its halls. You will be able to see the Opera House's public areas and admire how it has been constructed and designed, and how this structure has remained timeless throughout the centuries. On the After Hours Tour you'll even get to see some locations not usually shown to the public such as the Stall of the Phantom of the Opera. It's truly an eye opening view into one of Paris' most magnificent buildings.

  • WEITING WENDY 26 Nov 2018
    Love the grand and magnificent building. The tour seems rush and the guide was not able to cover the whole of the Opera? Note: Do clarify the exact timing of the English speaking tour when exchanging tickets. On the day of my booking, they only have the 11AM English Tour, and not the 11.30AM one like Klook claims on the website. We arrived at 11.05AM and waited until 11.40AM before finding out that the only English speaking tour (11AM) for the morning had left! Had to exchange our tickets to the Afternoon tour at 2.30PM instead and thus causing disruption to our Itinerary.

    the tour was informative and lovely. Would have been better to have clearer instructions. Arrive early to have your bags screened before you come to the ticket counter to redeem, all before the time of the tour
  • Elaine Francine 6 Mar 2018
    The waiting place was wrongly stated in voucher. Please enter and ask for the english guide at the ticket booth. Show them the voucher and someone will bring you to the guide. We missed 15mins of the briefing while waiting outside as stated in the voucher...
