Day 1

London - Calais - Paris (Distance: 460 Kms)

Today morning join up with your coach and depart towards Dover for your crossing to Calais; you will require your passports at hand as we will cross the UK and French immigration, as well as security. The crossing on the ferry will last approx. 90 Minutes; 40 minutes if the crossing is from the Euro Tunnel train.

Once we are in mainland Europe, we make our way directly towards Paris. We will be crossing through Northern France, whilst we make our way towards Paris. On route, we will make a short stop at the service station. The stop will only sell continental food, and there will be no fast food restaurants located within the services so make sure you are prepared.
We will be covering quite a distance today to reach Paris, so ensure you carry your key essentials and devices for your entertainment for the journey.

We expect to arrive in Paris, in the early evening. We then make our way back to the centre of Paris, where we embark on the famous "Bateaux" cruises of Paris for our one-hour cruise along the River Seine, we cover the stunning architecture that Paris has to offer on sights such as the Grand Palais, Petite Palais, Pont Alexandre 3rd bridge, National Assembly, Invalides and of course the spectacular Eiffel Tower. The glass-covered boat is at your disposal, choose to sit inside or outside whilst listening to the commentary of the sights.

We enjoy a delicious Indian meal at the restaurant before boarding our coach and making our way to the hotel for our two night stay. Get a good night’s sleep as more wonders await you tomorrow.

Day 2

Paris City Tour (Distance: 90 Kms)

After your continental breakfast, we board the coach for our full day city tour. We start the day by making our way to the city centre of Paris.

Once in the city centre, we make our way to the renowned, and world recognised the Eiffel Tower. Your journey will take you to the top of the Eiffel Tower. It should be noted that as the Eiffel Tower is the worlds most visited paid monument you should expect long security and ticket queues as reservations are not always available. Additionally, you will be provided tickets for the highest floor possible, should the top floor ticket not be available or closed then the ticket difference will be reimbursed to you on the completion of your tour. On instances we may conduct Montparnasse Tower, where the Eiffel Tower is closed due to national holidays, Bastille day parades etc., or non-operational due to any other reason, an advanced warning will not be given in relation to the change of monument.

We then continue to the famous Louvre Museum here you can buy your own ticket and view some of the famous artefacts and sculptures housed here. Why not take the short time we have here to see the ‘Mona Lisa’ or Marley horses, or simply bide the time shopping for loved ones, and grabbing lunch at the many restaurants inside the Louvre.

We then visit the Fragonard Perfume Museum and get a brief insight into the origins of the different type of fragrances and the history of the Fragonard brand, you then have a chance to purchase some unique French fragrances, soaps, candles and more.

In the evening we will then make our way to the restaurant for Indian dinner, on the allocation of our entry time enjoy your meal and then we board the coach for our "Paris by night" tour.

The Paris Night tour, which lasts 90 Minutes and takes you around the key sights of Paris at Night, see the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Concorde and Invalides from the comfort of your coach, with the magnificent street lights and monumental lights gravitating you towards the wonderful sights and monuments. See the Eiffel Tower sparkle on the hour, for five minutes immersing you in the city of Paris, and truly recognise why it has been nicknamed the "City of Lights".

Whilst travelling around Paris over the last few days we would have covered various other sights including the Vendome, home to the Ritz Hotel; Concorde square made famous during the French revolution and Avenue des Champs Élysées, the largest tree-lined boulevard in Paris.

We then late into the night make our way to the hotel and get ready to check out tomorrow morning.

Day 3

Paris - Calais - London (Distance: 460 Kms)

Today morning we check out of the hotel after breakfast and load the luggage depending on your final drop off point. We start the day by making our way 27 Kms out of Paris and head towards the town of Versailles.

On arrival at Versailles make your way to the Garden of Versailles, a fine example of 17th-century French landscaping covering an area of more than 800 hectares. Use this free time to take mesmerising photos, souvenir shopping or simply relax admiring the Royal Lawns with the Grand Canal in the background. The gardens are landscaped in the classic French Garden style perfected here by André Le Nôtre.

We then depart Versailles and make our way towards Calais. The journey back we say goodbye to friends we have made along the way as we drop off those getting off on the route.

Once we reach Calais, we cross over back into Dover or Folkestone depending on our crossing schedule for the tour on the day. We continue our journey towards Wembley and dropping passengers off at their respective drop-offs.
