After carefully planning a five day trip to London, my daughter asked if we could squeeze in a day in Paris. Hmmm. I wasn't sure how to accomplish that feat at the last minute, and I wondered if it would be worth it to do a whirlwind day in Paris. I asked Angela at British Tours if this was possible. Not only was it possible, but Angela put the entire tour together, along with roundtrip EuroStar tickets for 2, in just a few hours. We left London's St. Pancras Station on an 8:00 a.m. train on a Saturday in July, and arrived in Paris a few hours later. As we emerged from the train, we saw Richard smiling and holding up a sign with our names on it, just as Angela had promised. Richard welcomed us and took us on an unforgettable tour of Paris. If your goal is to see Paris in one day, I cannot imagine touring Paris any other way. Richard talked as he drove and filled us in on Parisian history. We went to every possible spot that one would dream of seeing. Richard not only drove us to every spot but gave us a personal tour at each location. The weather was above 90 degrees F, and it was a blessing that British Tours supplied us with an beautiful clean air conditioned car and chilled water bottles during the day. We dined in a Parisian bistro, shopped for an hour in the boutiques, and enjoyed the grand tour. We traveled quickly and efficiently through the tour, but definitely lingered and wandered whenever we wanted. When my daughter and I settled into our seats at 9:00 p.m. on the train for our return trip to London, we both spent the next two hours talking about Richard's tour and reliving the emotions and mental pictures from our wonderful day. Thanks to Angela and Richard at British Tours, my daughter and I will always have Paris!
