Make your own way to London’s St. Pancras rail station in the morning, and step aboard the comfortable Eurostar train bound for Paris. Your round-trip Eurostar tickets come with a 1-day Visite Paris Pass that entitles you to unlimited travel on the city’s central metro and bus network, as well as a Paris information pack, metro guide, and city map.

Sit back into your reserved seat, and relax on your journey to Paris’ Gare du Nord rail station. Then, on arrival, enjoy the best part of the day and early evening in the beautiful French capital.

Perhaps head to the Eiffel Tower to experience the views from this iconic 19th-century monument; stroll along the elegant Champs-Élysées to see the Arc de Triomphe; or marvel at the medieval architecture on Ile de la Cité. 

Alternatively, you may want to visit the world-famous Louvre to admire art treasures such as the sublime 'Mona Lisa' by Leonardo da Vinci, or delve into the bohemian streets of Montmartre. Or, perhaps miss out on the sightseeing and spend your time relaxing at the sidewalk cafes, shopping at the upscale boutiques, and sampling fine French cuisine.

When the time comes, make your way back to the Gare du Nord to catch the mid-evening Eurostar train back to London. Your trip finishes when you arrive back at St. Pancras in the late evening.

    Great way to visit Paris
    , Jun 2019
    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.
    1 exit too soon
    , Jul 2018
    good rate overall but with the express train out there were no stops so I/we expected the same on the return and were not told there would be at least 1 (more?) so we rushed to beat everyone off the train to try to get a taxi only to find out we were 40 miles or so outside of London. Luckily there was another train about 30 min later we were able to catch back to London.

    Booked this package as it was cheaper at the time then booking through Eurostar. WIsh we had asked more questions of the person who met us at Kings Cross to give us our tickets. Also it is good to be on time as it took us a while to get through customs and security. We took advantage of the metro pass. However, we did not know that Gare Du Nord was under construction. So finding the correct metro line was a bit a tricky and not too many people spoke English. Also be advised that you have to pay to use the restrooms at Gare Du Nord upon returning and once checked in to our return to train to London the restrooms were free. Once we figured out the metro we had smooth sailing.

    Horrible experience. Had a day tour to Paris with Eurostar from London to Paris. Showed up early at the train station and Viator rep was late. Then Viator rep was missing one of my tickets. Viator rep was completely lost and had no idea what she was doing. With 5 minutes for gate to close, Viator rep simply said, I'm sorry we missed a ticket and there's nothing we can do. VERY unprofessional!! She didn't even try to solve the problem. Needless to say one of Viator's competitors was around and was able to provide us 2 free tickets to board the train. If it wasn't for this tour company, we would have missed the train and lost our money. Will NOT be booking through Viator again!!! Such a horrible experience and needless to say embarrassing to my spouse which was their anniversary gift.

    , Mar 2018
    All in all it was great until we are told that we need to make sure we get on the 9:01 PM train from our guide and then realize that our guide gave us incorrect information and we needed to be on the earlier train. We had to pay 40 euros each of our tickets to make the change and when we tried to call the emergency number multiple times no one answered. The start of the trip was great but really felt like this travel agency did not follow through when we needed them.

    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!
