Celebration, romance and charm
Join us in Paris as we wish "Bonne Annee" to the glorious 'City of Light'. Every year the Arc de Triomphe is transformed, the champagne flows, and the city is dressed in its festive finery. Enjoy our optional excursions or explore the French capital at your leisure to see Paris at its festive best - a sight you'll treasure forever.
Leaving your local area by coach, early this morning, we'll travel to the port for our Channel crossing and continue to our hotel in the Greater Paris area, stopping en route for the chance to have an early evening meal (payable locally).
After a leisurely breakfast, we'll head into central Paris by coach to enjoy an included introductory tour of the city's world-famous sights, including the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre. After the tour, spend time discovering the incomparable 'City of Light' at your leisure, and perhaps join the optional Seine river boat cruise to see the landmarks of the city's heart from the comfort of a Bateau Mouche.
Day Two (New Year's Eve)
Later, as the atmosphere starts to build, join this evening's optional excursion to the soaring Montparnasse Tower (pre-booking essential). Ride one of the world's fastest lifts to the top floor for a sensational view of the city as it waits to welcome in the New Year, and perhaps treat yourself to a glass of champagne before joining the crowds along the Champs-Elysees. See the spectacular light show and fireworks at the Arc de Triomphe and, shortly after midnight, return to the coach to head back to your hotel.
Spend this morning relaxing in your hotel, before re-boarding the coach to begin your journey home, arriving back in your local area by late evening.
