We were spending a week in London and decided this would be a great opportunity to experience Paris, too. We chose Premium Tours after much shopping around because they offered a completely guided tour to all of the places we wanted to see.
The driver who collected us from our hotel was an excellent tour guide himself. He navigated the streets of London with hardly a thought and pointed out things as we went (Abby Road, Regent's Canal).
We arrived at the train station in a bit of a rush but were whisked through by the helpful tour company employees and the train station staff. The main tour guide introduced herself almost immediately once we boarded the train to tell us about the day ahead. I was very pleased that our tour guide was a native of France who spoke excellent English. Everything was timed very well. The air-conditioned bus was very comfortable, the boat trip awe-inspiring and the lunch on the Eiffel Tower one of our favorite meals on the trip. The Louvre was the exquisite icing on an already decadent cake. We can't wait until we have a week to spend just exploring there! My husband, daughter, and I could not have been more pleased with our first taste of Paris!
