Get your cameras ready – you'll be seeing some of the city's most treasured landmarks. Make a note of your favorites, as tomorrow you'll be able to explore the city in far more detail. After checking in to the hotel, we'll travel to the hilltop region of Montmartre for dinner, a refuge for artists and bohemians in Paris' glory days, an area whose cobblestone streets have seen their share of famous faces over the years. Enjoy views of the city from the white stone steps of the Sacre Coeur. After dinner in artistic Montmartre the rest of the evening is yours to do as you wish.

This evening for dinner you can try classic French cuisine like chicken with creamy Dauphinoise potatoes and beef bourguignon (a stew made with red wine). A vegetarian dish is also offered.

Paris

Paris

Hotel: Ibis la Defense / B&B Porte Des Lilas / B&B Paris Malakof / Ibis Paris La Villette Cité des Sciences / B&B Paris Italie Porte de Choisy / B&B Hôtel Orly Chevilly or similar

The wonderful thing about Paris is that it there is so much to experience, regardless of the time of day, or time of the year. The Seine River is the backbone of the capital, and flows through the heart of the city. The banks are peppered with booksellers and market stalls if you wish to walk. But, why not choose a cruise, and float past the grandeur of the gothic Notre Dame cathedral, to the epic Eiffel Tower? The commentary from the river boats will give you invaluable knowledge and information of the city. Famous architecture is scattered through the city, and strolling is the best mode of transport for taking in every ounce of history. Paris Disneyland is perfect for the young at heart, and is only a short distance away. Your tour leader is brimming with ideas and local knowledge, so that you can get the best out of your time here.

This evening, you will enjoy dinner where you can try classic French cuisine like chicken with creamy Dauphinoise potatoes and beef bourguignon (a stew made with red wine). A vegetarian dish is also offered.

Day 03
Interlaken

Paris - Swiss Alps

Hotel: Alpenrose Hotel & Gardens / Hotel Baren Ringgenberg / Hotel Schonbhul / Hotel City Oberland / Das Hotel Sherlock Holmes / Swiss Youth Hostel Interlaken or similar

Au revoir France. Make yourself comfortable; the drive through the mountains of Switzerland is the highlight of Day 3. As you wind your way through the valleys, marvel at the snow-capped peaks, forests, changing colors of the landscape and picturesque mountain lakes. We guarantee that any goose bumps you get will be only partially due to the drop in temperature. Once in the heart of the famous Jungfrau Region, we'll check in to our mountain village accommodation, and enjoy the views. One of the most visited places in the Alps, it is also a World Heritage site, and there are plenty of reasons to charge your cameras in preparation for tomorrow.

While in the Swiss Alps, you will have the option to try a classic dish - cheese fondue. Melted cheese is served in a communal pot (caquelon or fondue pot) over a candle, and eaten by dipping bread into the cheese. And eating among scenery like the Swiss Alps makes for a truly incredible experience!

    Fabulous trip.

    Even in November , this was a fantastic experience. The tour guide and driver were both exceptional. It was amazing how much we saw in a short time. We were always told about the places we were visiting, including how to avoid scams. A few ...times we had local guides which were exceptional, especially in Rome. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour. Read full review

Hi,

I'm asking you again.

The price excludes "optional tips".
Can you explain what it is? You said "Tips are for the tour guide on the tour."
Is it "Optional" or mandatory?

If it is "Optional", I don't need to pay. If it is "Mandatory", how much is it for "12 Days"?

Thanks.

Dear Min,

Thanks for your interest at Tours4fun.

The tips for the tour guide are not mandatory.

However, Tour guides and drivers rely upon the service fees charged on the tour to supplement their income. The wages of tour guides and drivers are determined factoring in that they will receive service fees to augment their earnings. Please pay at least the recommended service fee because the tour guides and drivers work hard to accommodate many people on the tour.

If you prefer not to join an attraction, the tour guide will arrange a place for you to stay and a set of time in which you can be picked up again.

For any further assistance, you may also contact our customer service team at
