Multi-Day Tours over Christmas
Staying for maybe a couple of weeks in London over Christmas means being away from home and the traditional Christmas Day with family and we are often asked for suggestions of alternative ways to spend the days over Christmas itself.
The most popular choice we see is to take 4 days away from London to visit Paris, particularly with the option to go to festive Disneyland.
The most popular tour people book is by Eurostar and please find details below.
Here is some more information from the Official Paris Tourist site
