We will travel overnight to the wonderful city of Paris by coach and ferry/eurotunnel. We will depart from Dover in the early hours of the morning, on arrival in France please note that you will have to put your watches forward by one hour. From Calais the journey to Paris will take about 4 hours, we will make a breakfast stop on the outskirts of the city where you will also be able to freshen up.
We will begin the day with the option to take a sightseeing tour boat along the River Seine (€10) – the perfect way to begin your day in Paris.
To book the River Seine boat trip please pay the guide on the bus before arrival in Paris (payment €10).
It is a short walk from here to the Louvre Museum, where you can take lunch and visit this historic museum, if you are lucky enough to be under 18 then the entrance is free or about €10 for adults. At the museum there is a large underground restaurant complex with foods from around the world, the cost of the food here is very reasonable compared to the more expensive places in the street close to the museum. During the afternoon you will have time to stroll along the Champs Elysees and visit the Eiffel Tower (up to €15 for ticket to the top) before meeting for hotel check in.
