Excellent trip, definitely worth it if you don't have time to stay in Paris. Thanks!
It was a great day in Paris. We didn't have much time in our trip and this was a perfect way to see Eiffle Tower while were were visiting London. The day was long, but worth it. I would highly recommend the trip. I checked out the first class upgrade and I don't think it would have been worth the almost 200 more for the train ticket. You can buy food and drinks on the train or even bring them with you.
I loved this tour! And my two kids loved this tour! Charlotte, our tour guide, was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable of the history and culture.
I recommend taking the Louvre guided tour as well, especially if you have never gone to the Louvre before. We saw the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, Madame on the Rocks, and Winged Victory of Samothrace.
The Champagne lunch was delicious! We had chicken and potatoes au gratin with a chocolate praline desert.
The tour guides were super friendly and insightful. Plus, we got to pass the long lines at the Eiffel Tower and got seated right away for lunch. Definitely worth the money!
This tour was the highlight of our vacation. The tour guide, Anna was very sweet and knew her stuff. There was a lot to do and she kept us on track. The river cruise was fantastic, but the champagne lunch at the Eiffel Tower was excellent. Nothing lacking here. The visit to the Louvre was a bit overwhelming. The maps were confusing and by yhe time we found Mona Lisa it was almost time to leave. We had a delay on the train ride back to London, but it all worked out. I look forward to my ne t trip.
I purchased the Luxury Paris Day Trip for my children who live in London I am in New Zealand. I found the online booking and so forth exceedingly easy - and my children accessed their tickets online and rated their trip as ten out of ten full marks....I have wonderful photographs of them on top of the Eiffel tower, sipping champagne and lots of other pictures of them experiencing awesome things on the trip. Thank you VIATOR for making my present to them so easy.....compliments to your website designer, and also to the people who looked after my children on their journey to Paris for the day.....
Meeting spot at St Pancras was difficult find by following directions on the information sheet.
The Louvre is not open on Tuesdays. Not noted in any of the information we received or read.
One needs euro coins to use lavatory at the shopping mall at Louvre only option on Tuesdays
Enjoyed the trip. Had a fabulous lunch on the Eiffel Tower. Quick bus tour of the city was very nice. River cruise was fine. The optional quick Louvre tour cost extra was a treat. Definitely would not have been able to see the highlights so quickly on our own. Glad we did the trip.
A few things could be improved: Finding our check-in point at the train station at the start of the day was confusing. Could be more clear on instructions. We found the Eurostar International departures area, but didn't see the tour company gathering in front of a restaurant across from it. No signs posted or anything. Felt rushed when checking in at the train station on the way back. More stressful than it needed to be. Perhaps passing out the customs cards on the bus would have helped.
This was a decent tour, but we were really rushed and almost didn't make it back to the train to London on time it was extremely stressful waiting through the customs line wondering if we'd make it or not. We also didn't get to have lunch at the Eiffel Tower because it was closed that day and we weren't told until the last minute. They gave us a river cruise lunch instead. It was ok, but no comparison to lunch on the Eiffel Tower.
