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; if you’re 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 Arc de Triomphe and elegant Champs-Élysées, and learn about the city's rich and long history from the engaging guided commentary.
Then, enjoy a scenic cruise on the Seine River. Take photos and hear the interesting commentary as you glide by landmarks such as where Notre Dame Cathedral stands, and drink in the riverside sights.
Next, head for the world-famous, 19th-century Eiffel Tower, Paris' most iconic monument, for your delectable 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.

Elements of the tour were excluded without prior notice, which was disappointing. BEWARE IF YOU HAVE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS OR ALLERGIES!! There was no place to put a dietary request. I have been a vegetarian for over ten years and I ALWAYS add that information when I can. The fact that a severe allergic reaction could have occurred is also a huge issue. If my friend had consumed shellfish, which was on one of the dishes she was supposed to get, we would have had to go to the hospital. Luckily I noticed this and she was ok, but it should not have even been a risk. They also were supposed to be giving me vegetarian items but the first dish was made of gelatin (hooves/animal product) and the second had beef broth in it. There was NO place for us to add this information since were supposed to be able to order what we wanted, but the itinerary was changed that day unannounced to us. We had no time to bring our own food and, because our guide was not staying with us where we ate, were unable to communicate well with the staff to make sure we received what we needed. Viator has TERRIBLE customer support and refuses to give compensation for this issue and will not even entertain it, not will the tour company this trip is booked with. Find a different Paris trip to go on if you can.
Charlotte, our tour guide, was amazing! She was very intelligent with what she was telling us. She was really funny and cool to be with! Charlotte brought us to the Eiffel Tower and told us a bit of there history. She seemed to care about us and the other people. Our group was on the boarder line of being cancelled due to the little amount of people. (7 but 3 cancelled) One negative was the food on the cruise, they didnt give us options and I dont like duck. But overall it was amazing, the trip was a life changing experience for me! I want to come back and live there!
It exceeded our expectation, the lunch that was provided in lieu of the Eiffel Tower lunch was more than enough. There was good food, wine flowing, live entertainment and the boat was clean.
Our tour guide Anna was very informative and so protective to the group.
Trip was fun and informative. It is NOT a trip to fully participate in the Paris scene. It is a trip that is held together by an experienced and informative tour guide. Ours, Charlotte, was wonderful. A comfortable bus tour around the city center of Paris. Included was a delicious meal.....with as much wine as you wanted....on the River Seine, a stop on two different sides of the Eifel Tower, and time around the Louvre. Plenty of time is allowed for border control, security checks, and train boarding. The guide kept everyone on time and together. It was a long day but a very memorable one.
