About The Tour
Take all the angst out of travel, just leave it all to us!
We will take you on a wonderful day trip that you will never forget, to the most romantic city of Paris. Your adventure begins as you board the high speed Eurostar train at London St Pancras International.
Your relaxing train journey takes you through the Garden of England under the English Channel and through the north of France – right into the centre of Paris where you will be met by your friendly, enthusiastic expert Paris Tour Guide.
From the moment you arrive in Paris, you will be beguiled by the richness of its history and its architectural beauty. Sit back in a luxury, private car and enjoy as you are guided through this incredible city. From the world-famous Eiffel Tower to the lesser known quarters of Paris every moment is a joy. The beauty of Paris cannot be understated and there is a surprise almost on every corner of this city.
See the stunning Notre Dame cathedral, ravaged by fire, but still standing as an overwhelmingly majestic sight. Close by is the Latin Quarter, a wonderful area of charming narrow streets where tourists mingle with the students from the Sorbonne University.
Stop for a coffee, the Parisian way, in the café which was known as a hotspot for famous philosophers, artists and writers too - sit where Sartre, Picasso, Hemingway and Joyce to name but a few used to sit.
The Louvre Museum built originally as a palace is mesmerising and you can choose to visit inside - it does after all hold the world’s most famous painting, the Mona Lisa.
Drive along one of the world’s most famous avenues, the Champs Elysees, dominated at the top by the incredible Arc Du Triomphe, built to celebrate the victories of Napoleon. Admire the symmetry and beauty of the elegant streets of the most opulent quarter of Paris, with fabulous boutiques, luxury hotels and stunning mansion buildings.
Stop for a delicious lunch in one of the many wonderful brasseries which your guide will recommend depending on your location at lunchtime.
Continue after lunch to the charming 18th Century Place Vendome, with its beautiful mansion houses - one which was home to Coco Chanel - jewelers and the Ritz hotel, still remembered as the place Princess Diana left from on that fateful night.
See the breath-taking 19th Century Opera House possibly the most stunning building of its time in Paris and the inspiration for Leroux’s ‘Phantom of the Opera’, now a world-famous musical.
On to the area of Montmartre, on top of one of Paris’s seven hills. The spectacular Sacre Coeur church looms over the pretty little squares and narrow streets of Paris’s artist quarter. Take a leisurely walk with your guide exploring this wonderful neighbourhood soaking up its bohemian ambience. The main square bustles with artists painting away, charming cafes and restaurants, windmills, and even a vineyard - this area has retained its charm of years gone by.
It is easy to find a peaceful little spot here with an incredible view overlooking all of Paris - the perfect way to end your Parisian adventure before returning to the Eurostar for a relaxing journey back to London.
