Why Travellers Choose This Tour

A great way to see London independently! Once you have boarded the Eurostar in the morning, you are completely free to explore London however you wish. Just make sure you check the timings of the buses in London to catch the train home on time!
Begin your Paris to London day trip in the center of the French capital, where you'll meet your host and get your round-trip Eurostar ticket. Board the 8:13am train, which deposits you in London at about 9:30am after a 2 hour 15 minute trip.

Arrive at London's St Pancras station to meet your London host and receive your ticket for the hop-on hop-off bus tour of the city. Your host escorts you to the St Pancras station bus stop and leaves you to see the English capital independently. To get right to your hop-on hop-off tour, take the Station Connector black line to whichever sightseeing bus stop you wish (you can change to the red line at Baker Street if needed). Climb aboard the next double-decker bus to start your introduction to the city. Click on 'View additional info' below to see a map of the bus routes.

The sightseeing bus tour offers an ideal overview of London's centuries of history, with an informative audio commentary available in multiple languages to explain the sights around you. Hop off the bus at any point that you want to explore on foot, including sights such as Big Ben, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament.

Your hop-on hop-off sightseeing ticket includes a cruise on the River Thames, too. To take advantage of this, disembark from the bus tour at the Westminster stop and board the nearby boat to see the city from a different vantage point.

The day is yours to construct as you like, and in London your options are plentiful. Visit a world-famous museum. Stroll through a picturesque park. Enjoy lunch and a pint in a traditional English pub.

After roughly eight hours in London, make your way back to St Pancras station (be sure to leave enough time after sightseeing to return to the station on time) to climb back on the London-to-Paris Eurostar for the return trip to the French capital. You'll arrive at Gare du Nord station in the evening.

This can be planned on your own at over 1/2 the cost. The guide met us at the Eurostar station, gave us our tickets, and left. We did everything else on our own. There was a guide that met us in London, but all he did was show us where the hop on hop off bus was. It was a great experience, but not worth the money for this tour guide.

I very rarely spend this much time on a negative review but felt other travelers needed to be warned about this trip and what you really can expect. My wife and I booked the tour in March 2018 and were really looking forward to our first trip to London. First of all up front you need to know the tour is conducted by two operators Paris City Vision Paris and Golden Tours London. Be prepared, the Gare du Nord station is very confusing and cold! The Eurostar train was late as employees there acknowledged happens quite often. If you have already booked this trip, be sure and check your tickets as there is assigned seats on the train. Train ride went well and arrived in London about twenty minutes late. This is where the real issue with the tour started. Every representative of Golden Tours when asked for a time expectation would quote you a time that was at least 20-25 minutes over what it actually was. When we boarded the Hop on Hop Off Bus at the train station in London we were told it was a 40 minute ride to the first stop at the Tower of London. We arrived an hour and 10 minutes later! We toured the Tower of London after lunch and decided to re-board the bus at the same spot at around 1:45. We were told the buses returned to each stop every 25-30 minutes. An hour and 20 minutes later, the bus finally arrived! We made the decision at that time that it was better to get back to the train station than try and do anything else including the free Thames River Cruise as Golden Tours advised we needed to get by no later than 5:30. We spent the next 2 hours on the bus in traffic not arriving back at the St Pancreas Station till well after 6pm just in time to catch our train back to Paris. There were many stops in that two hours that were unexplained by the drivers as one would disappear and be gone for up to 10 minutes? When again asked about time expectations we were always told only 25- 30 minutes to the train Station! We could have walked back faster! For a very expensive tour we were able to have lunch and see one London attraction. My advice is to pre-purchase your own Eurostar tickets and take Taxis to where ever you want to go, it will be cheaper and less stress! As a Level 6 Trip Advisor I take pride in writing accurate reviews and stand by this one!

It was difficult to locate the person with the tickets for the train to begin with then the train was delayed so less time in London. Further, once we got to London, the rep we met sold us tickets to West Minister Abbey without telling us that it closed early and when we got there, it had just closed. If we would had known it closed early, we would had gone to that event first.

The Eurostar ride was comfortable and without any hiccups. Customs was easy and fast. However we could have done fine without the rudeness and scolding of the Paris city vision customer service staff. It was only our 2nd day in Paris so we did arrive a little late to the meeting spot. I called and profusely apologize for being late but the customer service staff just kept scolding me which I did not appreciate as this was not a free service they were providing. I paid almost 600 US dollars for this excursion. Also the directions to the meeting spot is not as clear as Paris city vision think they are. We walked past the guide at least 3 times and couldn't spot him because he did not have anything to identify him. Finally we walked up to a man standing in a corner and saw that he had a FOLDED sign in his hand with the company's name. Once we got done with the awful experience of the customer service staff and got out boarding info from the guidehe was nice and understanding to us being late, we went through customs very easily and quickly. The guide waiting in London was very nice and helpful. The city of London is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring it. We enjoyed the Thames River Cruise.
