What You Can Expect

Luxury Paris Day Trip with Champagne Lunch on the Eiffel Tower

Travel to Paris on Eurostar

Select Eurostar standard or first class travel when you book. Then, travel independently to London’s St Pancras International station, meet your friendly guide, and settle onto your comfortable, air-conditioned Eurostar train. 

Sit back and relax as you journey to Paris in a little more than two hours. If you’ve traveling first class, savor a delicious breakfast served to your table, and then dinner aboard this evening.

On arrival, hop inside an air-conditioned coach for a panoramic Paris sightseeing tour. Have your camera poised as you pass top Paris attractions such as the Opera House, Arc de Triomphe and elegant Champs-Élysées, and learn about the city's rich and long history from the engaging guided commentary.

Then, head for the world-famous, 19th-century Eiffel Tower, Paris' most iconic monument, for your delectable Champagne lunch. Show your priority-access ticket to avoid any long entry lines, and ascend via the elevator to the chic 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant, located on the first floor. 

Take your seat and sip on a glass of chilled Champagne. Feel the bubbles tickle your nose, and feast on an appetizing 2-course lunch as you absorb the bird’s-eye views over the city spread below. Read the Itinerary below for a sample menu.

Then, enjoy a scenic 1-hour cruise on the Seine River. Take photos and hear the interesting commentary as you glide by landmarks such as Notre Dame Cathedral, and drink in the riverside sights.

Afterward, opt to use a spell of free time as you please. Perhaps enjoy a guided visit to the Louvre (own expense) to admire art treasures such as Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. Or delve down Paris' handsome boulevards and lanes to shop at upscale boutiques, snap up gifts or unwind and people-watch at a sidewalk cafe.

Lastly, head back to the railway station in time for your return Eurostar train. Your day trip then concludes at St Pancras in the evening.


Sample Lunch Menu

Main Course:
  • Roast chicken with fondant potatoes

  • Chocolate cake and chocolate mousse

Great tour. I'd recommend staying in a hotel near the St. Pancras Station which is what we did Hotel Pullman as it was easy to walk to the station in the morning and back at night. And don't forget to take your passport for the trip. It is required!

We had the most incredible time. The whole day was first rate. Charlotte our tour guide was Parisian living in London. She made the tour personal to us. Lunch in the Effel tower was great. The cruise on the Seine perfect. Worth every dollar.

After a lackluster tour in London, this one day Paris tour was a dream come true. It truly delivered from beginning to end. We could not have been more pleased with this tour. It was scheduled out so well, not too rushed, the guide was WONDERFUL, a lovely mix of humour and info. The lunch on the Eiffel tower was quite spectacular for a tour lunch. I did not feel as if they were just tossing food on a table to a tour group, it felt very special and was a highlight of the day. The train trip was exciting as well, we opted to not do the catered meals on the train and we were fine with just bringing some food along from the train stations and buying drinks on the train. The river boat cruise portion of the Paris tour was a highlight as well. I would VERY MUCH recommend this trip. A true value for all that you get to see and do in one day. THANK YOU so much
