Paris is just a train ride away from London, and on this full-day tour, you can hop aboard the Eurostar without a second thought and zip away to the City of Lights. Select standard or first-class travel, sit back, and relax. Upon arrival, enjoy a city tour of Paris’ top landmarks before setting off on a Seine River cruise if you've booked the guided experience, or take a Paris hop-on-hop-off bus tour if you've decided to explore independently. 
What to Expect
Begin your day bright and early at the centrally located St. Pancras International railway station in London. Before boarding the Eurostar, you’ll meet a tour representative who will present you with an in-depth Paris guide and navigation tips. Then, settle in (you have the choice of standard or first-class seating) and enjoy the trip.
Upon arrival at Gare du Nord in central Paris, if you’ve selected the guided tour option, you’ll meet your guide and join a city tour for a whirlwind trip around the city. From the comfort of your seats, admire views and snap photos of the city’s popular landmarks, from the Champs-Élysées to the Arc de Triomphe.
Afterward, embark on a scenic river cruise along the Seine, with more sightseeing opportunities: Notre-Dame Cathedral is a highlight of the journey.
If you’ve selected an independent tour, the day is yours. Embark on an open-top bus tour, visit Paris’ art museums, embark on a shopping spree, or sample the city's delicious culinary offerings.
In the evening, return to Gare du Nord station and board your prebooked train back to London, where the tour ends.

This is an okay option if you don’t get to Europe very often (like me) and you want to get a quick look at the Paris highlights. It is certainly a beautiful city. However, if you want to do anything more than the bus and...More

Great trip - Eurostar ride is smooth and comfortable. We didn't have time to go up the Eiffel Tower because the lines were really long but everything else was great. The guide, Peter, did a good job.

Alexandria was a wonderful tour guide. Very accommodating and knowledgeable. If pressed for time, the one day trip is the way to go.

Riding the Eurostar in and of itself was very interesting. But Paris was incredible. Personally, I found the city to be a bit on the dirty side, which disappointed me. But we hired a tour guide to take us around to various sites in the...More
