Frequently Asked Questions
This is totally up to you. With Paris so close to the UK, the French capital can be reached in just a few hours by coach, train or plane. To see as much of Paris as possible and enjoy a variety of experiences around the city, we recommend spending at least two nights here.
Yes, Paris is an excellent choice for a cross-curricular trip. We can plan a mixed itinerary that allows students to practise their French skills, learn about the French Revolution, visit famed art and science museums, get a taste for Parisian food, or anything else you require. Please don't hesitate to contact us for further information on how your cross-curricular school trip to Paris might work.
Groups can visit Paris all year round. Summer is the main tourist season, so everything will be busier during this period. The crowds thin out during the shoulder seasons (April to May, September to October), but the weather is still pleasant.
Over the low season (November to February), there's still plenty to enjoy and costs will be lower. Plus, around Christmas time, the city lights up with beautiful festive decorations, market stalls, skate rinks, and more.
Walking is, of course, the best way to see any city and your Itinerary Coordinator will plan your itinerary to maximise your time and minimise the need for transport. Most groups choose to travel to Paris via coach and, therefore, use the coach to move around where possible to save money on Metro tickets.
One of our favourite visits is the Tour Montparnasse which offers a 360 degree view of the city including the iconic Eiffel Tower. Unlike the Eiffel tower, you can book in advance to avoid the long queues on the day. One of the most popular visits with our groups is the Bateaux Mouches - a boat trip along the Seine which offers a relaxing way to see the sights.
There are lots of free things to do in Paris, such as taking a stroll along the Champs-Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe, or taking a walk around the fascinating area of Montmartre. It's also free to go inside the beautiful Sacre Coeur Basilica. And the cemeteries of Montmartre and Pere Lachaise are free to visit too. For any further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
