Nigel lead our all American group to Paris in February. He was remarkable well spoken and informed. Handed us our tickets and got us through the queue to get through passport control and onto the train. The train ride was quite fun and exciting for my 10 year old.

Once in Paris we had a wonderful time seeing all of the sites (which are quite close together). Nigel was a perfect mixture of leading and helpful while he also gave us time to disappear and wander off on our own. I was really excited about this trip and it was worth the time. It will be a long day but you will see so much!

We had a wonderful day trip to Paris. It's important that you understand that you are only paying for your transportation with the basic package: train tickets and hop-on-hop-off bus. There is not a guided tour. (My suggestion would be to purchase the basic package one anyway as it doesn't sound like the other options are worth the money.)
I will also say, that the instructions say that the the tour "Departs" at 6 am. This is not the case because the train left at 7 am. You will meet the representative from the travel company at 6 am to check in. You really do not need to be there until 6 am, so don't kill yourself to get there like we did an hour early.
This is a truly fantastic way to visit Paris and see what you can fit into one day. It was absolutely worth it in my opinion!

Family of 9 women aging in range from 19-65 thoroughly enjoyed our day in Paris. Angela was a wonderful guide. The day was extremely long but we felt like we had enough time to see core Paris sites.

This turned out to be a real good deal. Myself and two colleagues were trying to plan a day trip to Paris , but, the expense of the EuroStar tickets was prohibitive. Then we looked into the guided tour through La Vacanza Travel and the price of the tour and all it included was cheaper than the EuroStar tickets we could get on our own.

The guided tour did not have enough sign ups, but, we did the hop on hop off bus and the river cruise and it was a very nice day
