What You Can Expect

Independent Day Trip to London from Paris including Thames River Cruise

London Day Trip from Paris including Thames River Cruise

When you’re short on time but don’t want to miss a trip to the British capital, experience London’s highlights with this packed full-day tour from Paris. Get an early start and make your way to the Gare du Nord train station in Paris, where a host will be waiting with your round-trip Eurostar tickets. Settle into your reserved seat on a London-bound train and enjoy the scenic, 2.5-hour ride through the French countryside and under the English Channel.

When you arrive in London midmorning, a representative will escort you from the St Pancras train station to Victoria station to begin your open-top coach tour. Keep your camera at the ready as you pass iconic sights like Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. Listen to an onboard English-speaking guide (or a multilingual audio guide) to learn about the history and legends of passing attractions.

Next, you can opt to join one of two themed walking tours included with your ticket. Get a case of Beatlemania while walking in the footsteps of the Fab Four, or immerse yourself in royal history on the blue-blooded Diamond Jubilee tour. Alternatively, enjoy leisure time to explore London on your own.

In the afternoon, glide down the River Thames on a leisurely cruise while learning about the modern and medieval sights that line its banks. Enjoy free time in the evening to continue sightseeing, shop, dine or visit a traditional English pub (own expense). 

Head back to St Pancras station to catch the 8:01 pm return train, arriving at least 45 minutes before it departs. Relax on the journey back to Paris, where you’ll arrive at Gare du Nord station in the late evening.

This is THE BEST tour of our selection, all well arranged and we really enjoyed this trip...except one staff in LONDON who gave pass to us in St. Pancras station...all others are very nice. That staff is not at all good and cribbing about his dissatisfaction of job and looking at my wife as if he never seen a lady at all. Did not gave any good impression...however, trip was enjoyable. We just loved london and we will come back to London alone to spend more days. Our Euro Star journey is memorable.

I highly recommend this tour if you're independent and wanted to see London in one day. I really like the arrangements made for us by this trip. Our tour guide showed up on time to greet us in both Paris and London so that was comforting. Overall, we got to see most of London's attractions in one day for a really good value.

I will definitely use Viator again. The trip went very smooth. There was a rep at the train station in Paris to give us our tickets, and a rep that met us immediately in London to give us our map of London and addition tickets for the boat ride etc.

The train ride was nice. Grab some snacks before you get on the train. One you get to London the traffic is terrible don't expect to see everything. You can't get around that fast. Plan what you want to see ahead of time. 3 or 4 major things is all you will get to see. You will not be able to take the bus around the second time.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2013

All in all, a good value and everything worked well, though made for a really really long day. No matter how hard you try, there is just not a way to see everything you want to in London in one day, so just pick a few spots/sights to see and enjoy the time you are there. The train ride was really cool for the kiddos.

Good day train trip was great found the bus tour seemed to go around the same area but on the opposite side of the road perhaps The Red Bus tour may have been better.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2013

I do not recommend.....too costly for what we were given... Long bus tour with very few tourist attractions. Tour did not include free pass to the attractions... On the bus for 3 to 4 hours and still had not made it tot he Thames river cruise. There could have been hidden fees, just did not accept additional offers to additional tourist attractions..........The day was bad due to rain. Do not feel that we got our money worth.....

Plan to use this trip for the Eurostar tickets only. The hop-on/hop-off bus was not very helpful. Getting back to the train station was difficult for us first-timers in London. Lucky, we navigated the Underground to get back. We also JUST missed a nightmare train cancellation due to weather by arriving very early at the station. We managed to take an earlier train and the original train back was cancelled. The other people on our tour were likely stranded in London. Viator should have been in contact by cell for any possible delays with the train. We were very, very close to having to stay the night in London and merely lucked out with being there early.
