Full description
Meet your guide at St Pancras Station, then it's all aboard the high-speed train to Paris. Relax and watch the scenery fly by out your window on your short 2-hour-and-15-minute trip. Arrive in Paris and set off with your guide to explore on a panoramic tour of the city that visits major sites including the Opera House, Champs-Elysees, and the Arc de Triomphe. This is followed by a 1-hour river cruise on the Seine that boasts wonderful sights of famous landmarks such as Notre Dame cathedral. Finish the guided part of your tour at the Eiffel Tower, then enjoy free time to visit your favorite sights on your own, or grab a delicious bite to eat at a local café. Your knowledgeable guide is more than happy to give you tips on what to see and do as you venture out solo. In the early evening you re-join with the group, and head back to Gard du Nord for your return journey to London.

I booked the “Welcome to Paris Day Trip From London Via Train” - so the standard package, but it was just enough. Anna is amazing - she gets 10 STARS - I enjoyed our day. Would def book again! I was a solo traveler on this tour, so don’t let that shy you away from joining because you are bound to connect with someone even if you come alone. The only downside, we lost 2 hours for train delay and passenger emergency, but that’s not the tour’s fault. It’s only 4 stars because the meetup spot at the cafe was confusing to where our check-in person was, so they should place in the write up to look for a bright vest with “Premium Tours” on it, so we don’t go up to random groups. Also, there was a small weird time hiccup in Paris, but that’s it! Everything was great!

From the meeting point at St. Pancras which was so easy to find with the directions provide to our guide Carol who was absolutely amazing. From greeting us on the Eurostar train at the start to her wealth of knowledge during the tour she made this tour what it was - amazing! And our driver Gabriel who was extremely professional navigating the streets of Paris which is not an easy task and he did it with ease. Carol and Gabriel were truly amazing! Excellent service!
