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’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 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.
