Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the London Day Trip from Paris by Eurostar. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The tour was everything we hoped for and more. The buses were clean and timely and the routes allowed us to see and do a lot that otherwise we could not have done. The only glitch was the timing of starting the tour. The escort in the arriving station was not holding the signage high enough, as she was slight in stature and we missed her. After gathering everyone and bathroom breaks, we missed the one thing I really wanted to see...the changing of the guard. All in all in was worth the price.
The whole trip is well planned. A very nice tour at a very good price. They explain step by step all you need to know and to do in order not to get lost and to enjoy the fullest. Everything good in life has a price, and I'm not talking about money ! In order to be on time at the tour company main office ( close to Louvre Museum ) you have to be out of bed at 6:00 am the latest and you may not have time for breakfast at your hotel because you have to be at theoffice before 7:00 am not to miss your registration for the tour. Once at the office there is only bending machine with coffe or cocoa drink, nothing else until you get to the train station.The trip to London is around 2 hours and a half. Since you got up to the time you reach London train station you already spent 4 hours.You will be coming back about midnight. You will enjoy every minute of the tour but be awared to be in good health and plenty of energy to fullfill all the expectacions ! Review by Juan and Wanda from Puerto Rico
Great self guided day trip... Hop on, hop off bus is a great way to see all the highlights in London... Only sketchy experience was having to call Cityrama Tours in Paris to confirm after booking with Viator online... "Sketchy" in the sense that when you try calling them from the number provided on the voucher no one answers and you just get a voice mail of someone who doesn't reply to your messages... I called Viator at the contact us page and explained this to them. Viator personally contacted someone for me and I was able to confirm as per vouchers directions. I use "sketchy" because while on the train I learned from a couple that they also had the same experience when trying to contact Cityrama to confirm. Aside, from the confirming issues, the trip was great! A Hop on, hop off bus agent met us in London at the train station and escorted the group outside the station to the bus pickup point. After, that you are free to roam/enjoy London as you wish!
Very organized tour. The train journey from Paris to London was in itself worth the experience. Tours around London were great value and you could see as much or little as you like. Long day but worth it. Highly recommend it.
Day trip to London was fantastic! First class on the train was excellent! Very organized, friendly and helpful tour guides.Easy to find everything. Would highly recommend this tour!
Just did this tour Nov 2013 and it was perfect! I was apprehensive after reading the negative comments but we had no problems. Cityrama escorted us to the gate in Paris and then Pedro from The Original Tour Co was waiting for us in London. Our train had been delayed, so Pedro had them wait for us!
I was a little hesitant about booking this tour after reading all of the reviews but I am so happy that I did! Everything went perfectly! I think Viator was aware of past complaints and did a very good job of tending to the customer's needs. We found the staff at CityRama very helpful and organized. We got to the train station with plenty of time to spare before boarding the Eurostar to London. Once we got off the train, there was a representative there to meet us and he walked us to the bus stop. It truly was that simple! I had done a lot of research prior and reading customer reviews proved to be very helpful. I knew the bus from St. Pancras was only the 'black line' so it was a connector bus. We rode this line to Marble Arch where we then switched to the yellow line which provided live commentary. The Original Bus Tour was great and the included ticket for the Thames River Tour was also an added bonus. I would highly recommend this tour!
Was a great experience for us. Very straight forward and hassle free!
An unexpected trip with thousand sweet memories for our 2nd honeymoon!
It was truely amazing. Will not travel again without using Viator. Great company to use for my future traveling.
This is a day trip not to be missed. However the early organisation could have been done better. The papers should have been handed to travellers inside the City Rama office and not on a one by one basis as they boarded the transfer bus. This arrangement would have very bad if it was raining. it was also dangerous to have travellers board across a bike path.
