2-Day Rail Trip to Paris from London

2-Day Rail Trip to Paris from London

Depending how you prefer to travel, you have the choice of a fully independent or an escorted tour.

Board the Eurostar, sit back and relax, arriving into Paris in just 2 hours and 40 minutes. On arrival into Paris Gare du Nord the rest of the day is free for you to explore Paris. Your accommodation is in a centrally located 3 star hotel.

Whilst in Paris you can use your ticket on the Hop On Hop Off City Tour to see the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, the Champs Elysees etc. at your leisure. The tour gives you the opportunity to have total independence to see what you want, when you want.

Day One (Fully Escorted)
- Travel from London and on arrival enjoy a guided panoramic tour which will show you all the main sights of Paris, and includes a stop at the second level of the Eiffel Tower. The tour finishes at the Louvre where you will have free time for lunch. In the afternoon board a boat for a romantic guided River Seine cruise followed by an optional visit of the Louvre (admission not included). Make your own way to your comfortable, air-conditioned 3-star hotel.

Day Two (Unescorted)
- After breakfast the day is free for you to explore independently. With your one day Hop on Hop off tour ticket you can explore the sights of Paris. This is by far the easiest way to get about in Paris and enables you to concentrate on your main areas of interest.

My sister and I both in our mid 70's took the two day tour to Paris and it was absolutely fantastic. The preparation of bookings and meeting at Railway Station was perfect. Our Tour Leader in Paris was fantastic. We had aa two day pass and really saw much of Paris. Value for our money, and will always recommend your Company. Thank you.

We had a great day with Charlotte. She was a great tour guide. It was a big group and she was very knowledgeable. We had a fun day and loved it. It's a lot to try to do in one day. It was pretty rushed but she did the best that she could with the time that she had to work with. We enjoyed the river cruise and the lunch at the Eiffel Tower. The Louvre just really needs to have a week to itself but she showed us some highlights and I enjoyed what she showed us. Loved Charlotte! She was a lot of fun.

Excellent !!! I'm glad picked the scorted 'cause we got the best tour guide ever: Samy from Evan Evans !!! He took care of us all the time, got us tickets to Eiffel Tour, and wen't to the second level in a few minutes, then lunch, boat tour on the River and Notre Dame. Hotel was excellent as well.

My 2 day rail trip to Paris was really great. Our guide did a phenomenal job getting into places easily and keeping us on the go all day. My only disappointment was not going onto the Eiffel Tower. The line was several hours long and we would have spent too much of our tour in line. My wife and I travelled to Versailles the second day and truly enjoyded the palace. We would not have been able to see all that we did on our own.

An excellent way to see Paris on a short time frame. Our guide "Sammi", was attentive to our needs, providing additional support for directions, accommodations, transportation, etc. The hotel for the overnight was good.

Very good tour. We were happy with how almost everything went. Sami was great as a tour leader. Things we were not happy with were minor and in the big picture, not terribly important. Tour went just as we anticipated when we booked, and made our Paris visit memorable.
