The pack is designed to help you make the most of your time and includes Eurostar train tickets with reserved seating and a map of Paris with public transportation information as well as a ticket for 1-hour sightseeing cruise on River Seine.

After an around 2-hour train journey, arrive at Paris Gare du Nord station at 10:17am local time. Once in Paris, your day is yours to spend as you please, so perhaps head to the Eiffel Tower, pay a visit to the Louvre, or admire landmarks such as Notre Dame Cathedral or the Arc de Triomphe.
