Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

We opted to do the self guded tour since we went to the guided tour last year and didnt have enough time to take pics . We took the hop on and off bus as soon as we got off the train in Gare du nord. There was a heavy traffic in Paris . We decided to stay in the bus to see all the sights then got off at the Eiffel tower stop. We took a lot of pictures . Honestly I think we needed at least 2 days to see the main sights as one day wasnt enough with the traffic . Maybe taking the metro would have been better . Over all we had a great experience . Our reprensentative in London explained everything in detail and the tour guide in Paris gave us instructions on how to get back to the train station .

Very organized. You meet the agent in the train station around 6:30 and they tell you in a very detailed way how to get where you need to go. The one thing I would tell people is the hop on buses in Paris are very slow. Paris traffic is horrbile and you'll wait up to an hour on a bus before you first get to a site. Once we actually started on the tour and saw some sites, we really enjoyed it. A great way to get a taste of the city when you don't have several days to spend in the country.

I travel alone and it was my first time to Europe. Find out Viator in the website and tried it out. On the travel day, I was at the station at 5.45am and about 6.15am the rep from Evan company met me in front of the Dune shop at St Pancreas Station. She gave the ticket and other itinerary. Checked in myself and waiting for Eurostar train to Paris. It was a wonderful journey as i met a good people during my 2 hours travel. The tour guide waited for me and has welcomed me at Gare Du Nord Station soon after i arrived. He brought me tour on hop on hop off bus. Even with very tight scheduled, my tour guide Christopher managed to allow me an hour shopping at Champ Elysee. Managed to grab my dream handbag in hour! Yes! After visited all the attraction places we reached station at 7pm. The train to London from Gare Du Nord at 8.30pm and i arrived London about 10.30pm. Thank you Viator to make my first experience trip to Paris are wonderful and memorable.
