Eurostar train fares are very volatile. At short notice the whole cost of a Paris day tour can be significantly cheaper than a walk-up Eurostar train fare.

Choosing a Paris day tour depends on your requirements. On this page we give you three options, from very independent through to fully guided. The choice is yours.
The common feature of all day tours to Paris is the Eurostar train service and the services of a tour manager for guidance and information.
In London the railway station is St Pancras International Station, just to the north of the very centre of London.
No hotel transfers are included to or from St Pancras.
It is an early start, you will need to be at St Pancras by 6 am to meet the tour representative. The tour representative will help you with check-in.
Note: you will need a passport and if applicable to your home country, a visa valid for visiting France.
You will have reserved seats on the Eurostar train. The train is scheduled to take around 2 hours 15 minutes to the centre of Paris.
On arrival in Paris, and through customs what happens next depends on the grade of tour purchased, (see detail below).
All tours include a 1-hour river cruise on the Seine but the cheapest tour does not offer the panoramic coach tour of Paris.
The return journey leaving Paris means you will be at check-in around 6 pm. (Note Paris and London are not co-ordinated on time zones and daylight summer saving. Most of the time Paris is 1 hour ahead of London.)
(Note the Louvre is closed every Tuesday and many Paris museums are closed one day a week - so if you have a particular place in mind to check out its opening days before you book.)
The entry level escorted tour takes care of course of all the ticketing involved. One of the advantages of taking a tour is that the tour operators can offer a fixed price tour company rate. Eurostar trains have very volatile dynamic prices. At short notice and at popular times the price of the whole tour can be half the price of the fares being offered.
This tour also includes a 1-hour river cruise on the River Seine.
