I loved every aspect of this tour. I cannot imagine an easier day trip to Paris. The meeting place for the tour at St Pancras station was easy to find. The tour guide greeted me on the train to Paris and answered all my questions about the itinerary. Everything ran on schedule. The boat trip on the Seine was scenic and there was a choice of both inside and outside seating which I appreciated. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower restaurant was great and the view was great. I chose to do the optional Louvre tour as it was much easier having a guide show me the main attractions than navigate this huge museum on my own. It was a long day but this is to be expected when visiting a city in just one day. I feel that the day was "optimised" to allow us to see as many Paris icons as possible and I don't think I would have been able to achieve this had I travelled independently. Overall I rate this tour 10/10. I also recommend people bring/wear warm clothing on this tour as there is some time spent outside and in winter it is very cold!
This is an awesome full day! A great overview of Paris including the main sites. Not only do you see the Eiffel Tower, you have lunch on it, the view is great. This trip is $ costly but you will be glad you did it.
The day was nearly perfect except for one thing. Our guide was darling, Eurostar an experience, eating lunch in the Eiffel Tower (I got the window!) exciting, boat ride just okay - way too many people -, revisiting the Louvre wonderful. Bad - had to almost run last 4 blocks to Gare Nord (?) to make evening train because of traffic - couldn't even go all the way on the bus - I have asthma - not so good. But we made it.
Tour Gide Charlotte was awesome. We saw the highlights we wanted, river cruise, tower, and the louvre. She took great care of us. I highly recommend this tour, especially for first timers like us.
It's more than I could imagine, the train ride was an experience to remember. The lunch at the Eiffel Tower was great and the cruise was interesting. Also our guide did an excellent job.
Brilliant, very full on but it was a glorious day and well planned. Cannot recommend this highly enough. (Very pleased we took the upgraded option).
This was a great way to see a glimpse of Paris while spending the week in London. Tour was well organized and our guide was good. Lunch at Eiffel tower was nice.
The tour guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. Everything was well organized. Lunch at the Eiffel tower is a special experience. Cruising on the river Seine was amazing. I will definetly do this tour again, but will stay an extra day in Paris next time. I went as a single person, and instanly fell like family, meeting interesting friends from all over the world that will last a lifetime.
The tour was great and alot was learnt about Paris. The tour guide was very friendly and it was a very pleasent trip apart from two people being late twice. Don't be late! Well worth the cost. The food on the Eiffel tower was lovely but there was not alot of it and it is served in a pirex dish.
This was an amazing day! Loved every minute! The trip coordinator and driver were great. Our Paris tour guide was passionate about the city, its history, and its culture. She inspired all who participated!
Thank you for a great and memorable experience!
It was a fantastic trip. Pascaline was a wonderful guide. The lunch at the Eiffel Tower was great. I would highly recommend this trip. The free time around the Louvre was about 90 minutes.
We booked this tour from New Zealand and it was everything we had expected. We had a great time, the tour guide was informative and extremely helpful.
We would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Paris but is unsure whether to or not. This tour gave an insight into what Paris has to offer, enough to make a decision as to whether to come back for a longer stay.
In our case we will arrange to do this next year.
a really fun day to see and enjoy paris. we were met by our guide on the train to paris and he advised us of our meeting point when we arrived there. once in paris we also met our tour guide for the day and after a tour of the main sites of paris we took our boat tour that gave magnificent views of the louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral as well as many other interesting sights along the Seine river. once the boat tour is done you are taken to the Eiffel Tower for lunch and it's good because there is a rather long line for the lift but the lunch tickets get you straight to the resturant. the pacing is pretty good on this tour but if you are wanting to walk around Notre Dame or go to the top of the Tower this tour is not for you because you simply won't have time, it was perfect for us because we just wanted to mainly see the sights but a more indepth tour woudl require a few days this is literally just an taste of paris but i would still recommend it to anyone wanting a different experience because the lunch alone was worth it!!
The tour was excellent. Our tour guide Pascaline was very knowledgeable and organized.
Our family took this tour on July 29th and enjoyed every minute! While we did not get to explore Paris on foot, we did see the highlights via bus and on the river cruise. Our tour director was lively and full of interesting information. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was amazing. The food was great, although the presentation was a bit weird - serving the food in Tupperware style containers seemed strange! But the Eiffel Tower was awesome to see in person. We did some great shopping and saw the Louvre. We did not have more time to give to Paris while on vacation, so the day trip was just perfect to check out the city. Having done that, we will definitely return to Paris and stay longer to explore this beautiful city!
Overall this tour was great. I was on a trip to London with my mom and had never been to Paris before so we decided to spend a day there. When we arrived at St. Pancras we weren't sure where to go. We got in line at the group desk and then a helpful woman approached us to ask which group we were with. The tour is operated by Premium Tours, which has a sign there, but we didn't know to look for it. She took us to the front of the line and gave us our train tickets. Boarding the Eurostar was easy and there are cafes inside the terminal to grab breakfast. Our guide found us on the train and explained where to go when we got off. We found him easily and met with another guide who would show us around Paris. The bus tour was okay...it would have been nice to get out at certain points for photos, but we did see a lot. The river cruise was lovely. My highlight was seeing the Notre Dame cathedral, even though we couldn't go in. Next we went to the Eiffel Tower for lunch. Our group got broken up in line for the lift and those of us in the back missed the Paris guide's explanation of where to meet her after lunch. By the time we got to the lift she was nowhere to be found. We made it to the restaurant and found her, but she didn't give us any further instructions. Lunch was very good. After, we went back down but had no idea where to go! A group member said we were supposed to find the red bus at the corner. Which corner? We weren't sure so we checked them all and eventually found the bus. This ordeal was frustrating. On other tours the guide offers a phone number in case of this situation but ours did not. Anyway, we had no problem with Louvre tickets (the guide purchases them for you). We saw the Mona Lisa and other key pieces. The shopping in the area wasn't great so the Louvre was a better option, even though we were exhausted! Great "Intro to Paris" tour. Would probably do it on my own next time to see specific sites. The Premium Tours guide was great!
I arranged this tour for 3 of my fellow traveling companions as part of a larger trip. My 3 friends loved the experience and said all went well from beginning to end. They would recommend it to anyone who only has a short time to allow for a day trip from London!
Overall this tour was fine. It was Paris that we wanted and that is what you get for a day. On the positive side the Eurostar was great. We were met at St. Pancras by one of our guides and led to the train where she introduced her self. Once in Paris is got a little confusing. Another guide met us but didn't seem quite as professional as the woman whom we met in London. Her commentary and organizational skills were not very good. Lunch at Tour Eiffel was good, the Seine cruise interesting and the bus tour hit upon the major landmarks. Be aware that unless you prebook for the Louvre admission you will not be able to get in do to the enormous crowds. That was a mistake we made but we still enjoyed the gardens and a few exhibits just inside. With all this we still enjoyed our day in Paris and would recommend it as in introductiion to he City of Lights.
This was certainly the way to do Paris in a day. All the sights in Paris are crowded so it is good to have someone lead you right in to what you want to see. Tickets are very easily purchased at kiosks at the Louve. It was our goal to see the Mona Lisa because the Louve is massive. We saw it and we're amazed at the huge painting on the wall opposite to the Mona Lisa, brief visit but well worth it.
Loved it We had a great time seeing everything. Our tour guide met us on the train. I think I would have rather had her meet us at the ticket area, because we were a little confused as to which line to wait in. the train was great and throughout the tour our guide was great and very informed. Loved our lunch on the Eiffle Tower. Would have liked a little more time for shopping but all in all we saw a lot and did a lot. It was a great tour.
Our tour guide was enjoyable and helpful. We only had a day for Paris and this was a perfect way to spend that day.
The day trip to Paris was amazing!! We loved the train that was fun, and our guide was the best. We saw and did all you could do in one day. I highly recommend this to anyone. Thanks for the experience!
