Some experiences have no explanation. This tour shares another dimension of Paris history. Your memory and this experience lasts forever. You realize how unimportant a single person is in our sea of humanity.

I am sure they will still have at least SOME openings as late as 2-3 weeks out - but if you want to have your choice of tour time and day of the week - the sooner the better..
