What You Can Expect

Paris Rail Day Trip from London

See the Louvre Museum on a rail trip to Paris from London!

Take an independent or guided rail trip to Paris by Eurostar, starting and ending at London’s St Pancras International Station. Select your tour option and standard class or first- classtravel when you book, and then settle aboard your comfortable, air-conditioned Eurostar train for your journey to Paris’ Gare du Nord station. 

If you upgrade to first class travel on Eurostar, savor a delicious breakfast served at your seat on the outward journey, and dinner on the way back. Plus, enjoy the comfort of a wider seat and increased leg room.

Independent Day Trip:

On arrival at Paris’ Gare du Nord, spend the day in the French capital any way you want. With no itinerary tying you down, enjoy a relaxed hop-on hop-off bus tour to see top Paris sights including the Arc de Triomphe, Place de la Concorde and more; and visit attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral and Louvre as you wish. Alternatively, perhaps simply relax at the sidewalk cafes, dip in to the stylish restaurants, or shop for goodies at the chic stores.

Guided Day Trip:

On arrival at the Gare du Nord, meet your friendly guide and take an open-top, double-decker hop-on hop-off tour of Paris’ signature sights. View must-sees such as the Place de la Concorde and Champs-Elysées, and then leave your bus for a visit to the second level of the Eiffel Tower.

Soak up the awe-inspiring city views from the observation platform, and listen as your guide talks about the monument’s history and construction. Then, following a break for lunch (own expense), reconvene with your guide for a scenic cruise along the Seine River. Behold the riverside sights, including Notre Dame Cathedral, before stepping ashore to see this breathtaking building independently.

Gaze in awe at the magnificent Gothic interior and 13th-century rose window, and then enjoy free time to delve into the charming Opera neighborhood, perhaps scouting out souvenirs or unwinding at the cafes. Your guided Paris visit then ends with a drop-off at Gare du Nord.

Please note: wait lines at the Eiffel Tower can be very long. If this is the case when you visit, your guide may suggest a substitute visit to the Louvre or Musee D'Orsay.

Sammy our guide is exceptional. He is so knowledgable and patient with our group. I had my elderly parents, and my two year old toddler, so was initially worried that the tour would be too much for them. But Sammy made sure everyone was comfortable.

And.... Everyone in Paris knows Sammy!!! It was fun to see everyone greet him as we walk around : And we got our tickets to the tower, and the boat ready before we arrive, and got ushered in places that we visit : the four of us were the only people in the group, so it felt like a VIP tour. Thank you Sammy!!!!!

Truly enjoyed the trip. Made seeing Paris in a day very easy and enjoyable. Only suggestion, would be to have the contact person at the train station hold a large sign, as we just happened to stumble upon her. And the pick up stop for the return bus to the train station was in the overly crowded shopping area and very hard to find.

What an amazing day my small group of four and I had with tour guide Sammie. He was so personable, offered many tips, showed us short cuts around town, made sure we got it all in, and returned us back to the train station in time. Kudos to Sammie for his outstanding dedication.

Sami was an awesome guide. Our train was delayed but he made sure we still had a comprehensive tour. If you're short on time. I would definitely book this excursion.

This was a wonderful way to see Paris if you are already in London. I can say that I saw Paris but did not truly experience Paris but got a good overview of the City. I would recommend this tour.

Sammy was an amazing tour guide!! Through out the tour, he was very attentive, respectful and entertaining. The group I spent the day with, we didn't have to sit on a crowded bus or wait in any lines. Sammy has incredible insight of Paris. I highly recommend.

Sammy, our tour guide was a charmer and he took care of us from the time we arrived 1 Hr late-train trouble until he put us in line for the train back to London. This is just a taste of a great city and now I want the whole enchilada. Expensive, but if you only have a day this is a good way to spend it. It is my opinion that fully guided tours are the only way to go. ,
