Didn't realise admission was free so purchased this thinking it was an entry ticket + audio. I lost 4g signal so couldn't actually retrieve my ticket therefore we didn't actually use it!

For this tour, visitors are issued samsung phones with a recorded informational program describing each section of the magnificent Pantheon! It is truly an architectural triumph surviving the grim middle ages and then recognized for its monumental importance.

Great trip to Pantheon

Didn’t realize a ticket is required for Pantheon entry on Sundays. Booked this late the night before. Got there about an hour early as viator recommended. Line was long but we got in in about 30 mins. Audio program was excellent. This was by far cheaper than any other online options we found and totally worth it.

Having a ticket to get inside saved the day for us. Anyone without an advanced purchase ticket was denied access as they were sold out for the day by 1pm. We decided not to do the audio tour while inside only because we had 2 exhausted kids. The Pantheon didn't disappoint even without the audio guide.

Audio tour was required on the weekend we visited Pantheon

This is not a guided tour. It's even better you get iphones and single use earphones from the audio desk and listen to the recording narrated by native speakers. It's even better than the tour guide. Takes about 45 min to finish. Here is the catch... this recoding also available through an app and you can use your own phone and download the app using the QR code printed at the audio desk. As a matter of fact while I was waiting inline I mistakenly downloaded the app and paid 1.99 euros thinking this was a prerequisite. Anyways that was my fault. That said, if you are there during the week the entry is free, you can download the app and you are good to go. However we went there during the weekend and they only let people with booking with audio tour in. Everybody else turned away. There is a huge line but don't let this discourage you. It moves pretty fast. We waited about 15 min. Half the people turned away since they didn't book audio tour in advance (weekends- busy season)

I felt the info could just have been emailed to my phone or printed out. Slight waste of money but well organised though.

When booked these tickets a the last minute as the Pantheon was fully booked for the day (you must make a reservation to go inside). Very useful back up plan.

Audio guide - well worth it!

We only bought the audio guide as reservations were full for the day and it was our last day. However, the audio tour was brilliant. Very informative and I’m certain we wouldn’t have got as much out of our visit without it. There is no seating inside & on a hot day can be very warm. Entrance is free but tickets are needed on Saturday & Sunday - I would recommend the audio guide though. Ladies - remember to cover your shoulders/back. We got denied entry on our first day.

This does not let you skip the line, so really you could just purchase the audio guide inside the pantheon. The audio guide was very good great information which I didn't know.

I didn't expect this to be my favourite sight in Paris! It's under rated in my opinion. A beautiful building and impressive works of art inside. Not to be missed.

Couldn't find the pick up point with the operator. We walked the whole square and side streets. Very poor directions and no response when we calked. Could be a scam. A waste of time and money., Very disappointed on our only chance to see the Parthenon.

Informative and easy to use
Derek_S

The audio guided tour was informative and about the right level of detail for me. Probably nothing you couldn't have found online if you tried so maybe a bit expensive considering entry to the Pantheon is free and this doesn't let you jump the queue. The audio tour is delivered via an app on a loaned mobile phone and you have to leave an identity document as security deposit so don't forget your passport or driving licence when you go. The tour is easy to follow at your own pace using the phone.

You won't learn more from a guide than this inexpensive audio tour provides. Just walk in to pick it up.
