    What to Expect
    This packed, full-day tour allows you to experience some of France’s most iconic attractions in a single day. Make your way to London’s St Pancras International train station in the early morning, where a representative will meet you and help you board a high-speed Eurostar train bound for Paris. After the 2.5-hour journey, a local guide will meet you at the Gare du Nord station in Paris. 

    Board a comfortable coach for a guided tour of Parisian landmarks, including the high-end shops and cafés of the Champs-Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe, the iconic Opera Garnier, and the regal gardens and monuments of the Trocadero. 

    After your city tour, climb to the second-floor observation deck of the Eiffel Tower for unmatched views of Paris. For lunch, you can enjoy a gourmet meal complete with a panoramic backdrop at the tower’s on-site restaurant, or opt for a more casual bite from a street vendor or café (own expense).  

    Next, pass through the outlying villages of Paris on the 1-hour drive to Versailles. Take an audio tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Palace of Versailles, which dazzles with excess at every turn. Walk down the shimmering Hall of Mirrors and learn about famous former residents with a glimpse of Marie Antoinette’s bedroom and other opulent royal apartments. Step outside the palace for a stroll among the immense, Baroque-style Versailles Gardens, where you can wander down geometric hedge-lined paths and admire ornate fountains and flowerbeds.

    After the Versailles tour, your guide will deliver you back to the Gare de Nord station in Paris and assist you with boarding the return high-speed train to London.
