What To Expect

Travel independently to London’s St. Pancras International station, meet your friendly guide and settle onto your comfortable, air-conditioned Eurostar train. Sit back and relax as you journey to Paris.

On arrival, hop inside an air-conditioned coach for a panoramic Paris sightseeing tour. Have your camera poised as you pass top Paris attractions such as the Arc de Triomphe and elegant Champs-Élysées, and learn about the city's rich and long history from the engaging guided commentary.

Then, enjoy a scenic cruise on the Seine River. Take photos and hear the interesting commentary as you glide by landmarks such as where Notre Dame Cathedral stands, and drink in the riverside sights.

If option selected, head for the world-famous, 19th-century Eiffel Tower, Paris' most iconic monument, for your delectable lunch. Show your priority-access ticket to avoid any long entry lines, and ascend via the elevator to the chic 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant, located on the first floor. 

Take your seat and feast on an appetizing 3-course lunch as you absorb the bird’s-eye views over the city spread below (if option selected) . Read the Itinerary below for a sample menu.

Afterward, perhaps enjoy a guided visit to the Louvre (own expense) to admire art treasures such as Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. Or delve down Paris' handsome boulevards and lanes to shop at upscale boutiques, snap up gifts or unwind and people-watch at a sidewalk cafe.

Lastly, head back to the railway station in time for your return Eurostar train. Your day trip then concludes at St. Pancras in the evening.

Anna was an amazing tour guide. The train ride from London to Paris was very seamless and comfortable. The Eiffel Tower with lunch was an incredible experience, I was able to go up and have lunch with an incredible view. They had gift shops, were I was able to purchase a few souvenirs as well. Anna was very knowledgeable of the history of Paris on the bus ride to and from the tower as well. Overall, I think the adventure had great food, great shops and an exquisite view of Paris from the tower! Would recommend to anyone. Thank you Anna

Paris with Anna!!!
Laura_D, Sept 2023
We had an amazing tour with Anna. She made the trip to Paris very interesting and fun! She is a gifted communicator! She is very thoughtful and kind!! Thank you for an exceptional trip!!
Wish we would have had notice via text or email that the time changed to an hour earlier. Very sad to have missed things
Bryan_T, Sept 2023
Missing the train, the confirmation the day before stated the train was leaving at 8:01, and there was no visible reminder to bring your passport ( helpful for first time travelers), had the train left at 8:01 as we were told, we’d have made the train. But leaving an hour earlier, we missed it and missed the bus tour and many sites that I’d dreamed of seeing in Paris. Then had to pay for two tickets on the 8:01 train, which is the train we showed was the one we would be taking. Our guide was lovely and did her best to help us and find us once we did arrive. She was fabulous!!
Paris - excellent one day tour. Eiffel Tour lunch was super !!
Tom_H, Sept 2023
Lunch in the Eiffel Tour. Boat cruise was good. Would have liked to have had more time in Paris. Guide was very good
From London to Paris for 1 day only C'est fanttastique!
Kathy_C, Sept 2023
Anna was a wonderful tour guide - Although this trip started VERY early at 6AM and we got back at 9:00 PM - it was worth every penny - Obviously you cannot travel from London via the train and see everything Paris has to offer in 1 day and we knew that - since we only had 1 day we needed to see the highlights which is exactly what was done. Anna was organized and offered helpful suggestions along the way including potty breaks (very important!) Lunch at the Eiffel tower was delicious and the boat ride on the Seine was wonderful. Course it helped that it was a beautiful sunny day and 88 degrees :) If you only have 1 day this trip is well worth the money.
Whirlwind but Worth it
Anne_B, Sept 2023
The time at the Eiffel Tower was great. Didn’t get any real time at the Louvre. It was closed. Knew it would be a whirlwind, so not super disappointed. Paris in a day is impossible.
Great Day Trip to Paris
Bindu_K, Sept 2023
The trip went well and Anna was a wonderful tour guide. We were on a large family vacation and this was a great way to see some of Paris altogether. We enjoyed our lunch on the Eiffel Tower.
Would recommend
Leigh_L, Sept 2023
This is my favorite tour yet! Ana was awesome and the food was to die for! If I had to make a complaint, it was how hot it was in the bus!
Memorable Paris Trip
Candace_B, Sept 2023
Our tour guide, Anna, was very personable. She was kind and engaging throughout the experience. She ensure that we were able to see all key highlights and provided great historical insight into the important landmarks.
Great Experience
Robert_H, Sept 2023
Had outstanding time. Correspondence on initial meeting point and what to expect was great. Our guide Carol did a tremendous job of explaining what to expect next made the trip go smoothly. Carol had a great knowledge of Paris and answered all of our questions. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing Paris via boat and having lunch on the Eifel Tower. Would use Viator again.
Paris day trip
Juanita_H, Sept 2023
Anna was a very knowledgeable and fabulous guide for this day trip to Paris. She ensured we hit all the areas in a timely manner. Although it rained, we were lucky to have some clear skies for the river cruise and part of the Eiffel Tower. This is a must do day Paris trip if limited on time.

The Beauty of Paris in a Day
Amanda_G, Sept 2023
Lunch inside the Eiffel Tower! Our guide was fantastic. Because of the horrible Paris traffic, we had to change up the ending of our day. We were supposed to go to the Louvre for a photo op and gift shop visit (going inside was never part of the trip as we didn't have time). Our tour guide rolled with it and took us to a local mall with rooftop access for taking panoramic pics of the City and also had souvenir items. It was a great day!
A very long day but an experience to remember.
Donna_L, Sept 2023
Seeing and being in the Eiffel Tower was definitely the highlight. We also enjoyed the boat ride on the river. Our tour guide was very pleasant and informative.

The panoramic view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower🗼 was breathtaking 🏰🏩🏬🕌🕍🏫🏰🏨 Big up to Anna for giving us the history of the different sites we passed by on our Seine river cruise🛥️. I would recommend this trip to everyone
Nice day trip
Donna_S, Sept 2023
Anna was a knowledgeable tour guide. Appreciated bus tour in air conditioned coach. It was 32 degrees in Paris the day we went. Otherwise a little more time at outside locations would have been nice. Lunch at Eiffel Tower was nice. No line ups as part of the tour. River tour was ok.
Svetlana_S, Sept 2023
Train from London to Paris was great very comfy. Eiffel Tower visit with boat cruise and lunch at the tower was great. City tour was good. Only negative part was extremely hot weather with high humidity.
Crystel_N, Sept 2023
Anna our tour guide was AMAZING!! She not only showed us the city, she taught us all of the deep history, and made it so fun! I highly reccomend this tour.
And a Goodttime was had by All!
Shawn_L, Sept 2023
We enjoyed so many aspects of the trip, including our amazing guide, Anna! She made the whole experience come alive with her enthusiasm, warm personality, professionalism, and her witty sense of humor! We enjoyed the Eiffel Tower portion of the tour the most because we got our and walked around and of course, the munch with wine was great! Also really enjoyed the relaxing river cruise on the Seine!
A Day Trip to the City of Lights or Love via the Eurolink
Michael_M, Sept 2023
Most of the day was spent on the Eurolink Train, traveling from London to Paris, with only about six hours in the 'City of Lights.' Our guide, Anna, was extremely personable, engaging, knowledgable, well-organized, and very helpful. Upon arrival in Paris, we traveled by an air-conditioned bus to the Eiffel Tower. Along the 50-minute drive, Anna pointed out landmarks, shared history and insights about what we were seeing. Unfortunately, there was no time to stop for pictures. On the positive side, the bus windows had been cleaned, making pictures much better being taken through the glass. Upon departure at the E.T., our group had the option of dining in the Tower or continuing on their own. We skipped the expensive lunch, although we heard good reports about the experience, and went exploring back down Champs de Elyse, finding a cafe for lunch and other places for desserts. Following our two-hour lunch journey, we met the group for a scenic river cruise, catching glimpses of the Louvre Museum and Notre Dame Cathedral. Afterwards, it was bus, train, and then back to London.
Barbara_M, Sept 2023
Anna was very informative. Enjoyed the drive through Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Amazing how she kept us all together
