Reminded me why I haven’t done a big group bus tour in a long time. It is not my preferred way to travel. In addition, I found staff at center to be rather rude. It’s ridiculous that the center doesn’t have a public restroom. Come on! Also, put a thorough schedule to link to so that tourists have a more complete idea of travel times (3 hours each way), time at sites, etc. One of the tour guides didn’t show up so one guide had to cover his group. She did a fair job under the circumstances. I was impressed by her ability to provide explanations in three languages but the information was rushed and limited. I took a small group tour to Giverny with Blue Fox and wish I’d have booked the Loire one through that agency as well. You can do better, ParisCity!
