Eurostar was great!

Jan 2018

The rep. met us at St. Pancras explained everything. After that we were completely independent.
We had plenty of time to enjoy Paris and the Metro day pass is a great plus.
We made reservations at Les Ombres restaurant, it was marvelous, definitely recommend! We upgraded to first class our way back

so worth it. you do have to get up early cause the train leaves early and you need to be at the meet up spot way before train departure. Once you get to the meet up point i got my ticket, the rep explained what my tour included and didn't. the train was very comfortable and clean and nice. I actually got a open bus tour when i got off in paris that made it easier to see all the major sites. All in all this was a great tour and worth every penny.

We booked this at the last minute, and were so glad we did! The logistics were easy, the tour representative was on top of things, and we had eight exciting hours in Paris! The high speed Eurostar is a blast!

Full day. Train tickets turned out to be cheaper buying it here as a tour than on my own on Eurostar. Tight day if you want to sightsee everything and river cruise was ok but I would have preferred a cheaper tour ticket instead or would have opted for hop on bus ticket instead....

It's definitely worth doing. However, if you don't speak French at all (like me) it might be worth it to do a guided tour. Sometimes I felt like I was just wandering around. The train was nice and the info at the start was good too.

The seats in the standard class are very uncomfortable for the back. On the return train the seats were closer together and the train was exceptionally warm. It is said that you get free wifi on the train...... it does not work.

Independent means unguided which was exactly what we wanted. This left the tour company with one responsibility, provide tickets for our family of 4. I would have expected that our assigned seats would have been together. The Eurostar offers sets of 4 seats where 2 seats face the other seats. I would have understood if the tour company did not have access to this configuration of seating, but 2 of us were given seats opposite a couple that had also purchased there tour through the same company. The couple would not switch seats. This happened in both directions.
