What You Can Expect

Budget Independent Rail Tour to Paris by Eurostar

Eiffel Tower, Paris

Make your own way to London’s St Pancras rail station in the morning, and step aboard the comfortable Eurostar train bound for Paris. Your round-trip Eurostar tickets come with a 1-day Visite Paris Pass that entitles you to unlimited travel on the city’s central metro and bus network, as well as a Paris information pack, metro guide and city map.

Sit back into your your reserved seat, and relax on your approximately 3-hour journey to Paris’ Gare du Nord rail station. Then, on arrival, enjoy the best part of the day and early evening in the beautiful French capital. With no fixed itinerary to tie you down, you’re free to relax and explore as you wish. All activities in Paris are at your own expense.

Perhaps head to the Eiffel Tower to experience the views from this iconic 19th-century monument; stroll along the elegant Champs-Élysées to see the Arc de Triomphe; or marvel at the soaring Gothic masterpiece that is Notre-Dame Cathedral. 

Alternatively, you may want to visit the world-famous Louvre to admire art treasures such as the sublime Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, or delve into the bohemian streets of Montmartre. Or, perhaps miss out on the sightseeing and spend your time relaxing at the sidewalk cafes, shopping at the upscale boutiques and sampling fine French cuisine.

When the time comes, make your way back to the Gare du Nord to catch the mid-evening Eurostar train back to London. Your trip finishes when you arrive back at St Pancras in the late evening.

We chose to see Paris without a tour guide because we wanted to roam around at leisure. It was so easy!!! Firstly, by joining a group to meet at Eurostar London we were guaranteed seats with like-minded travellers. The train was SO comfortable. We arrived at Gare du Nord and jumped on a hop on hop off bus there are 3 different routes immediately outside the station on arrival. Throughout the day we saw all the main sights for 33 euro bus ticket. It was WONDERFUL and stress free and we spent as long as we liked looking at the sights we chose not ones we didn't. Remember to take your passport and be prepared for security checks similar to man airports.

Having these train tickets with an open schedule during the day was very convenient for our trip.We met in the morning to receive our train tickets and also received guidance on where to go, what to do, and how to get more information. Everything was easy and went smoothly, and our contact was kind and informative.

Of much more importance, however... our evening return tickets were stolen while in Paris PANIC!. I was able to get a customer service person on the phone very quickly, and within less then 15 minutes he had reached our morning contact, who had then reached back out to me. When I answered her call, her first question was Are you okay?! She asked if we were alright, and then asked if we still had our passports - before anything else. THAT is what sticks in my mind. She was worried about myself and my traveling companions as PEOPLE and not just as customers, and it was incredibly appreciated during our hectic day. Within another few minutes she had reached the train company, provided me a new confirmation number and details, and we were able to have new tickets printed at the station prior to our departure. In less than a half hour, EVERYTHING was fixed in a calm, kind, and very professional manner. I cannot say enough good things about this service. THANK YOU!

The tube/bus day pass was a godsend! Definitely using Viator again in the future!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Much less expensive to go through Viator than through Eurostar direct. The metro pass ended up being quite helpful as well. Make sure to not be late the gates STRICTLY close 30 minutes prior to travel time. Our fault, but we ended up missing the train and had to pay 30 pounds per ticket to change to the following train. Make sure you're through the gate on time!
