DAY 1 - London to Paris
London

Christmas is always exciting. Paris is always exciting. Combine the two and it's almost too much to fathom. Let's do this! Start the pleasantries on the ground in London - we'll be carrying on like family by the time we hit French turf.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Exclusive 'Paris by Night' sightseeing tour
See the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, the Champs-Élysées, and Notre Dame Cathedral
See the White Cliffs of Dover
Dover

Shortly before we find our ferry for France, we'll be taking in the English coastline beauty of the White Cliffs of Dover. They owe their gorgeousness to their composition of chalk - you're in awe and we haven't even left the UK!

Calais

On arrival in France we'll be in Calais, where we will take in the history of World War I battlefields in the Valley of the Somme and Vimy Ridge. This sobering reminder of the war, and a historical talk will help us remind ourselves of the days gone by. 

Paris

Who needs a Christmas tree when you have the Eiffel Tower looking so spectacular and sparkly! Start your Parisian experience right with a 'Tour of Illuminations' to kick things off, marveling at Paris lit up by night and sparkling with romance. City of love, city of light, city of bridges, Paris is known in many ways, and loved the world over. Cheese, wine, blockbuster sights at every corner, museums, shopping, the list is endless and the good times are only just beginning. Tonight, we'll take to the cute cobbled streets of the Latin Quarter to find some delicious French eats, who knows you might even dine to the sounds of the harmonica to complete the oh-so French scene. 

Stay
Ibis La Villette Cite des Sciences (or similar)
DAY 2 - Paris
Paris

Wake up and start wishing your wolf pack a very Joyeux Noël! Today we'll soak up the city from a new angle by taking an included cruise along the River Seine for some of the best views of the city as you glide past le Eiffel, the Musee D'Orsay, the Grand Palais to name but a few of the world's greatest sights. Keep it moving with good bottle of wine and some cheese, some shopping or maybe even a trip to the top of the Eiffel! Tonight, we'll stuff ourselves full of traditional French delights like duck a l'orange, boeuf bouguihnon to name but a few at our included dinner in the famous Montmartre, but of course. This evening you can treat yourself to your own Christmas gift with a Cabaret show & champagne at the Moulin Rouge. Music, dancing, an an obligatory photo infront of the famous windmill. Life = complete. Because when in Paris...

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Cruise down the River Seine
Traditional French feast
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Cabaret Moulin Rouge
EUR 97.00
Stay
Ibis La Villette Cite des Sciences (or similar)
DAY 3 - Paris
Paris

Throw a croissant in one hand, a coffee in the other, and head out to explore Paris' post-Christmas vibes. We'll hit up the Fragonard Perfumery where you can stock up on perfume, obviously. Especially exciting given the greatly discounted prices and authenticity of buying in France. Still buzzing with life, this is the perfect time to roam museums (some of the best in the world), people watch, or spoil yourself with a French Christmas gift from the fashionable district of le Marais for some vintage threads or unique boutique vibes. Tonight find a restaurant in a local quarter with cobbled streets, dim lighting and possibly a harmonica player to complete the perfect French scene and people watch over some vin rouge, Christmas kick ons, anyone?

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit a French perfumery
Stay
Ibis La Villette Cite des Sciences (or similar)
DAY 4 - Paris to London
Paris

It's time to board the coach and farewell France. The rest of your Christmases sure have a lot to live up to! 

Calais
Dover
London

Back in the big smoke we hug it out one last time before the trip comes to an end. It's time to get prepared for a new year of travel adventures.

Paris for Christmas was a fantastic trip! This was my first Contiki tour and it definitely has set the bar high. It is a fast trip, but with all the free time we were given I still got to see almost everything I wanted to in Paris. Our TM Tai and Driver Mike were both equally fantastic. Notre Dame was beautiful and the Eiffel Tower was amazing. I highly recommend this trip if you want to experience Paris at Christmas! The lights around town were gorgeous, especially down the Champs-Élysées. The Christmas dinner that Tai and Mike arranged for us at Montmarte was nothing less than excellent. I had such a fantastic time and met some fantastic people.

For someone who doesn’t really like travel I had a great time and I felt relaxed knowing I was in great hands.

The tour included all the main tourist hotspots in Paris, and also allowed us to explore the city in our own time. The NRI activities helped us all to bond, and by Christmas it felt like being on tour as a family. For such a short tour there was so much packed in, and the passion for French culture shown by the tour manager really helped to shape the experience into the amazing three days that it was!

There was little time to bond with the group due to the trip being so short. Would have been nice if there was more group activities.

This was my first Contiki experience and will not be my last. The Christmas in Paris trip was extraordinary from the get-go. Our tour manager Tai-Leigh was spectacular and very knowledgeable. Mike our driver was amazing too and made sure to get us safely to each location. My favorite highlights included crossing the English Channel via ferry, Moulin Rouge add-on, Christmas river cruise on the Seine, and Christmas dinner at a French restaurant in Montmartre. Most importantly I made some amazing friends on this trip who all decided to extend their trip and we all got together in London post trip. We have even talked about making it an annual tradition and looking forward to planning our next Contiki trip together.

I am highly disappointed with my experience of the 'Christmas in Paris' tour. I found the itinerary very misleading and the tour to be an overall waste of time and money. The itinerary gave the impression of a much more inclusive tour, whereby we'd be visiting attractions such as the Louvre, the Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower. However, all the tour included was a coach ride to these destinations with a very brief background explaining their significance as we drove past on the coach. A large proportion of the tour was "free time", where we'd then have to make our way back to these very destinations such as the Louvre and Eiffel Tower and pay from our own money to gain access. The very reason why I selected the tour was to obtain exclusive access to public places, such as prebooked tickets to the Louvre and going up the Eiffel Tower. Instead, the tour was mostly going back to the popular places that makes Paris so beautiful in our "free time", paying for our own access and waiting hours in line for each activity. As it was, tickets to the Moulin Rouge show was an additional expense I prepared to pay for. However, the basics of the very reason of wanting to visit Paris was not actually included in the trip. Really, the only things that were included within the tour that was in the sum of $715.00 was the coach hire, a three course Christmas dinner, a boat ride along the Seine River, accommodation (at a very poor quality hotel) and standard daily breakfast at the hotel. Prior to departure, I know the hotel itself is $95.00 per night as advertised via their website on the selected dates of the tour, and river cruises are easily obtained without the need for a tour in Paris for about $35.00. I don't believe the Christmas dinner was at that great in quality to really justify the remainder of the expense relating to the tour and the coach proved to be more hassle than its worth, where we couldn't even be dropped off to our hotel properly because the coach wouldn't fit or the driver was only allowed to drive within particular hours. Other times, arrangements were indicated to the group that the driver would park outside a particular place but then we'd have to walk further as he didn't leave early enough after dinner to make sure the coach was nearby. For a four day trip, this is very disappointing. I stayed at a hotel in Saint Germain for the first day prior to the tour starting in Paris and stayed at an airbnb for a further three nights after the tour ending in Paris.My only regret visiting Paris would be wasting the money purchasing the tour which could have otherwise been spent staying longer at places with more lively accommodation in the heart of Paris. As I found the hotel that formed part of the tour really uninspiring with nothing really surrounding it, that you need a car to get to anywhere significant. I would like to note that our Tour Manager was very friendly and approachable and I had no issues for that aspect of the tour. She made a bad tour, a somewhat bearable one. For those considering purchasing this tour, my overall recommendation would be to save yourself the time AND money, and go through airbnb to have a much more positive and authentic Parisian experience.
