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.

Fantastic trip, Samy our guide was amazing, must know everyone in Paris! Collected us from the train and had us seeing everything plus more in the time we had before he dropped us back 9 hours later. Went above and beyond in my opinion.

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

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. ,


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Got to see so many things in just one day. Highly recommend this trip if you want a whirlwind tour of the city.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

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.
