See Paris the way you want with this tour. After your relaxed train trip from London, take a guided tour of the top sights on the hop-on hop-off bus or go independently using your included ticket to go where you choose. It's a stress-free day trip to the City of Lights!
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. ,
Got to see so many things in just one day. Highly recommend this trip if you want a whirlwind tour of the city.
If you do not have a guide like Sammy, you will spend most of your day in line. Sammy got us into the Louvre and Notre Dame without having to wait in line. Great access. Saw so much in 1 day and didn't have to worry about catching buses or missing trains.
Paris is a crazy city to navigate, so the hop-on hop-off bus tour was a good option for us. Our buses did seems to run less frequently than other bus tours, but we were able to get around the entire city and make it back to the station in time to catch the train back to London. By opting for the self-guided tour, we were able to go into Notre Dame and to the summit of the Eiffel Tower, excursions that might not have been possible with the guided tour. For a one-day trip, we saw and did enough to make it worth it for us.
This tour and the guide Samy were GREAT!
The instructions for getting to the tour and where to meet were not clear at all. It said to meet at a group welcome desk however, it does not exist anymore. Please make instructions more clear. The tour itself was great though.
This is a long, long day!! We got the standard tickets and believe me, there is no reason for the first class. Don't waste your money. The Eurostar is incredibly comfortable. Our full day tour ended up being just 7 people total. We had a person guide who took us around Paris to his favorite places. We had time to go to the Louvre and he took us past everyone in line! Notre Dame was definitely one of my favorites as well. We had a wonderful time on this trip! Exhausting, but certainly one of the highlights!
This is an excellent tour for those with limited time to see Paris! We left St Pancras station and were met by our tour guide Sami in Paris. Our first destination was the Louvre where we were given free time to see the things we wanted to see. Next the bus took us to Notre Dame Cathedral and we had plenty of time to view it's beautiful interior as well as its outside structure. Our next destination was the bus trip up the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triumphe. Then finally the magnificent Eiffel Tower. The river cruise along the Seine completed the trip and for me was a highlight.
This tour was so exceptional I felt I should have actually paid more because the value was that outstanding. The tour itself was conducted by a local tour operator and every customer contact, from the 6:15am meeting, was punctual and professional. Our guide in Paris, Sammy, was simply SPECTACULAR! He knew all of the ins and outs, made sure we never waited in line, watched out for our safety he could spot a pick pocket a mile away, knew someone at every sightseeing stop and stayed with us until we were safely inside the train station heading back to London. One of the other people on the tour started calling Sammy The Mayor because he knew so many people and knew so much. My wife and I had previously toured Paris and brought our daughters on this trip. We saw more on this tour than we did previously in three days. The value here was exceptional. By the way, the Eurostar experience was phenomenal. If you are thinking about one day in Paris, spend the extra pennies or pounds for the guided option- you'll be happy you did. And ask for Sammy to be your guide!
Great day! I was able to see everything in Paris. I highly recommend this excursion. Christophe was an amazing tour guide/ photographer!
