Day trip tp Paris

looks like we might have waited to long to book an escorted tour (blame my husband) i tried golden tours and evan evans, both of which are sold out. are there any other companies?

worst case scenario we do it on our own, but would prefer the tour.

bogden, when are you going to Europe again? If in the next couple of months, you may find that Eurostar tickets are $$$$ / ££££, as the cheapest fares will sell out quickly.

Paris isn't a difficult city to wander through on your own - with a Plan de Paris par Arondissement (like the London A to Z) and a Metro map, you'll be set to go.

If you want to book a city tour separately from your transport from London, have a look at city-discovery.com/paris/sightseeing_tours_p…

it is just going to be a day trip and we were planning to go May 7. i would never have waited this long, but my hubby is such a procrastinator. i tried Britain Shrinkers and a waiting to hear back,

looks like at this point eurostar would cost us £268/537 USD, which would be ok as an escorted tour would have been £328/657 USD.

if i go through say golden tours for an unescorted tour that includes eurostar and bus voucher it would cost us £220/440 USD. this may be the best option at this point.

Try Britainshrinkers.

The description of the escorted day trip is at:

www.britainshrinkers.com/index.cfm?page=10

They also have unescorted day trips and the one I opted for, an overnight trip, first day escorted, second day unescorted.

I'd do an unescorted tour. The Paris metro is very easy to navigate and you get to take in the place by foot and at your own pace rather than being bused about.

I am doing a day trip to Paris in May .. I booked my ticket and once i get to Paris, I'll do a guided tour with a local company. I booked my tour @ www.viator.com ... they have lots of options... My two cents :)

Choose a guided tour once you get to Paris - there are adverts for walking tours in the Paris tourist office in the Rue des Pyramides. Otherwise send an email to the LONDON walking tours guides at www.walks.com because they have a small associate company in Paris that do guided tours as well. No need to overplan these things!
