From Calais the journey to Paris will take about 4 hours, we will make a breakfast stop on the outskirts of the city where you will also be able to freshen up.
We will begin the day in the city centre and take you on a walking tour to Eiffel Tower. You can have free time to go up Eiffel Tower or we offer an optional tour on a River Seine boat cruise (Euro 10) – the perfect way to see the sights including views of Notre Dame Cathedral. To book the River Seine boat trip please pay the guide on the bus before arrival in Paris (payment Euro 10).
Make sure you visit Louvre Museum, where you can take lunch and visit this historic museum. If you are lucky enough to be under 18 then the entrance is free or about Euro 12 for adults. At the museum there is a large underground restaurant complex with foods from around the world, the cost of the food here is very reasonable compared to the more expensive places in the street.
