3 budget orientated tours to Paris

On offer are three weekend breaks deals to Paris.Typically the Paris tours will depart London early on a Friday morning and return Sunday evening.


If there is a national holiday in the UK on the Monday, tours will normally run Saturday to Monday. At Easter a 4 day break is offered.

The accent of these Paris weekend breaks is on value for money. Accommodation in Paris is typically at an Ibis brand hotel in Paris.

The vast majority of Paris weekend tours use fast Eurostar trains taking just over 2 hours from London's St Pancras Station where you join the tour to the heart of Paris. A small number of tours travel to Paris by touring coach.

All tours offer an included sightseeing tour covering the highlights of Paris. A choice of optional tours and activities means you can be as independent as you like.

Paris budget weekend break by rail - tour option 1

This three day Paris tour includes high-speed Eurostar train, hotel & a sightseeing tour.

Paris budget weekend break by rail - tour option 2

A very similar budget orientated weekend tour alternative offering more dates to choose from.

This tour may be more of interest if your preference is for a more guided tour with more options as a tour group.


The fast Eurostar train used on this Paris tour is the same and the hotels used are very similar.

As said before this tour is much more guided, although the last day is very much yours.


On arrival there is a fully guided tour of the city by coach with time for lunch on the Champs Elysees.


After checking in to the hotel the tour relaxes on a river cruise along the River Seine. Glide past many iconic sights like The Louvre and Notre Dame, then end the cruise at the Eiffel Tower with a chance to climb to the very top.

After breakfast the next morning we head to historic Montmartre to learn of the struggles of the artists that lived there, from Renoir to Van Gogh. After a guided walk we head to Notre Dame cathedral and the Latin Quarter with a break for lunch.

In the afternoon there is an optional visit to the majestic Palace of Versailles.

On the last day you have plenty of time to explore independently.

  • Paris coach sightseeing tour & River Seine cruise included on the first day

  • Visits to Louvre Museum (entry extra), Notre Dame Cathedral & Montmartre + Sacre Couer

  • Optional tour: Afternoon visit to Palace of Versailles

  • Plenty of free time on last day for the Louvre, shopping...

  • 2 nights' accommodation in a bed and breakfast Ibis hotel

  • Travel by high speed Eurostar train


Weekend 3 Day Short Break By Eurostar Train To Paris Tour Ticketing

Paris budget weekend break by coach - tour option 3

An occasional tour very similar to the train tour number 2 option above is made available. The fast Eurostar train used on this Paris tour is the same and the hotels used are very similar.

Once you arrive in Paris, the itinerary is very similar to tour 2, though of course the coach you used to travel from the UK is used for travel around Paris.


As a result of the longer journey time travelling to and from Paris by road you arrive slightly later and depart slightly earlier than the Eurostar train tour.
