The instantly recognisable symbol of Paris, The Eiffel Tower can be seen from almost any point in the city and the view from the top is truly awe-inspiring. It dominates Paris to such an extent that it's hard to believe it's only a little over a century old having been built in 1889 to celebrate the centenary of the French revolution. No trip to Paris would be complete without a visit to the Eiffe...

Located at the summit of the hill of Montmartre, and surrounded by the houses of this famous bohemian quarter, the white, Romanesque domes and arches of the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur were built in the late nineteenth century by subscriptions from all over France.

One of the best and most relaxing ways to see the sights of Paris is to take a Seine river boat cruise. Starting at the Pont d'Alma, near the Eiffel tower, your cruise will take you up stream to the Ile de la Cite and Notre Dame Cathedral. Trips last around an hour and depart every 30 minutes during the high season and every 40 minutes during the low season.

What our teachers had to say about this destination
Very happy with Halsbury again; clear, detailed information. The choice of hotel was excellent; the staff were very helpful and the restaurant Aphrodite was equally good and welcoming. We would definitely would like to stay there again on our next trip. Our driver was very friendly and professional; he knew his whereabouts and we felt that we were in good hands with him.
Thank you so, so much for everything that you have done for us over the past year! I've thoroughly enjoyed organising our trip with you, and you have made everything very simple and straightforward, so that the planning was able to run smoothly. Everyone had an incredible time in Paris - all of the concerts were wonderful (particularly Disney!), and the itinerary was perfect and so jam-packed that we returned to England with a very happy but tired coach load of people!
An excellent trip and excellent service from Halsbury!
