Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - London to Paris

On arrival your friendly tour guide will accompany you to our coach for a half day coach sightseeing tour of this amazing city.  Sights you will see include Montmartre, Moulin Rouge, Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elsyees, Louvre Museum, Place de la Concorde, Eiffel Tower and more.  The tour ends with check in at our fantastic 3* city centre hotel. After check in (and some time for food), join the guide and travel by metro to enjoy a Bateaux Parisiens boat cruise by the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

This tour includes commentary on the spectacular river Seine from which you can see many of Paris’s major attractions, and ends with the opportunity to climb the Eiffel Tower (entrance fee is extra) to get a ‘bird’s eye view’ of this wonderful city. The guide will show you where you can buy tickets for the Tower, and for anybody tired after a long day sightseeing the guide will then accompany you back to the hotel.

During the evening, you will have the option to join your guide for dinner in a nearby local restaurant. This is a great opportunity to try the local food, whilst getting to know your fellow travellers (food, drink and any public transport is extra). Our 3* hotel is in a great city centre location, with a large choice of good restaurants within walking distance.  The hotel also has a restaurant.

Day 2 - Paris

After breakfast, meet the guide at 09.00am for a full day of sightseeing by metro. The first stop is Montmartre for the Sacre Coeur, Place du Tertre and Moulin Rouge.  Then on to Ille de la Cite and the world famous Notre Dame Cathedral, with time for lunch and shopping on the banks of the Seine.

The day finishes with some free time for shopping in Opera or on the Champs Elysees. Here you can shop in the department stores Galeries Lafayette or Printemps, see the Opera Garnier (entrance charge), visit the food shops Hediard or Fauchon, or maybe enjoy tea and macaroons at La Duree. Or you can join our half day tour to Versailles.

Half day trip to the Palace and Gardens of Versailles – £45

A fully guided half day tour to the stunning Palace of Versailles.  Price includes coach or train to Versailles, tour guide and entry to the Palace.

Access to the gardens is free of charge, except for Fountain Show and Musical Gardens days (from April to October).

Built in the 17th century during the reign of Louis XIV to project the absolute power of the French monarchy, it served as the political capital and royal court for over 100 years, until in 1789 the revolutionary mobs massacred the Palace Guard and dragged Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette to Paris to cut off their heads!  Undoubtedly the grandest and most famous chateau in France.

Alternatively, you may wish to do your own sightseeing.  The hotel is so central sightseeing on your own is a very simple option.

Evening free to enjoy the Paris nightlife.  From our hotel Bercy metro station is a two minute walk, and all areas of Paris City centre are easily accessible in minutes by metro.

Day 3 - Paris to London

A morning excursion by metro to the Louvre Museum (entry not included, free on the first Sunday of every month) and your chance to see the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, Michelangelo’s Dying Slave or to follow the trail of the Da Vinci Code! Our guided tour of Paris finishes after lunch and some final free time for shopping.

We return to our hotel, collect our luggage and you will be collected by coach and transferred back to Paris Gare du Nord station for the return Eurostar Paris to London St.Pancras International.

Where does the trip depart from?

Can I get picked up from my hotel?

Pick up from hotels is not possible.  You will need to make your own way to the departure point.  However some tours do have a designated hotel departure, which you can stay in prior to the trip.  Please ask at time of booking for departure points and we can direct you to local hotels.

Are entrance fees included?

Entrance fees are included where specified on the itinerary.

Can I pay in dollars?

All tours are quoted and charged in pounds sterling, but you can pay using your local card and currency.  We will debit the card in pounds sterling and your bank will use their exchange rate at that time to deduct the amount in your local currency.

What time does the trip leave and return?

Departure times will vary depending on the itinerary.  European tours departing from London will usually leave between 05.00am and 07.00am.  Multi day UK tours will leave between 06.00am and 07:30am.  Day trips will depart between 07.00am and 09.00am.  European and worldwide tours that start in an overseas city will have a welcome reception on day one of the tour which is usually around 18.00pm.

A definite departure is guaranteed to operate for that given departure date.  A trip that is not yet designated a definite departure is not yet guaranteed to operate based on current booking numbers.  If a trip and departure date you are interested in is not yet definite, do not let this discourage you from booking.  The more paid passengers received, the odds of the trip operating increase.  In the slim case that the operator withdraw a trip you are booked on due to a lack of numbers, you are entitled to a full refund of any funds already paid towards the tour, or if flexible with your time, we can move you onto another departure.
