I purchased the budget independent rail tour with metro day pass and it was the perfect way to visit Paris for a day from London. The cost of the Eurostar tickets were less than purchasing directly through Eurostar. The tour company met us the morning of departure and provided an envelope with our train tickets, day pass for the metro, Paris map, and guide to checking in and traveling on the Eurostar. The guide was very informative as she explained the check in, security, immigration processes both ways. This was much more than I had expected from an independent tour. Really good service.

We chose to see Paris without a tour guide because we wanted to roam around at leisure. It was so easy!!! Firstly, by joining a group to meet at Eurostar London we were guaranteed seats with like-minded travellers. The train was SO comfortable. We arrived at Gare du Nord and jumped on a hop on hop off bus there are 3 different routes immediately outside the station on arrival. Throughout the day we saw all the main sights for 33 euro bus ticket. It was WONDERFUL and stress free and we spent as long as we liked looking at the sights we chose not ones we didn't. Remember to take your passport and be prepared for security checks similar to man airports.

Having these train tickets with an open schedule during the day was very convenient for our trip.We met in the morning to receive our train tickets and also received guidance on where to go, what to do, and how to get more information. Everything was easy and went smoothly, and our contact was kind and informative.

Of much more importance, however... our evening return tickets were stolen while in Paris PANIC!. I was able to get a customer service person on the phone very quickly, and within less then 15 minutes he had reached our morning contact, who had then reached back out to me. When I answered her call, her first question was Are you okay?! She asked if we were alright, and then asked if we still had our passports - before anything else. THAT is what sticks in my mind. She was worried about myself and my traveling companions as PEOPLE and not just as customers, and it was incredibly appreciated during our hectic day. Within another few minutes she had reached the train company, provided me a new confirmation number and details, and we were able to have new tickets printed at the station prior to our departure. In less than a half hour, EVERYTHING was fixed in a calm, kind, and very professional manner. I cannot say enough good things about this service. THANK YOU!

crepes in the Marais area of Paris!

While we were already across the pond in Londan, we decided a quick day trip to Paris for crepes would be the icing on the cake!


Budget Independent Rail Tour to Paris by Eurostar

Awesome time!


Deb and Chuck in Paris train station

Here we are, all excited to see Paris. We weren't disappointed. Just to much to see in one day. We took so many pictures, but we forgot to be in them.


Deb at the GlobeTheater

What an awesome place. It gives you an idea of what is might have been like back in the day.


Jim Morrison's Grave

Inside the Pere LaChaise cemetary in Paris. It's best to look up directions to his grave site beforehand so you know where you're going otherwise you'll be wandering around for awhile.


Notre Dame

Here's a back view of Notre Dame as seen from the Ile St. Louis


Louvre Museum

A great museum, if only we had extra time to go in and explore!


Eiffel Tower

A definite must in Paris, even if it is touristy. The 3rd level was closed the day we went so we could only go up to 2nd level, but the views were still pretty cool.


Arc de Triomphe

another must see in Paris. The views from the top are pretty cool, as all the streets around it radiate out like spokes in a bike tire.
