Loire Valley ToursThere will always be a Paris—but seldom an opportunity like this one to spend two days at leisure here with your international airfare already included. Experience the splendor of the Eiffel Tower glowing against a night sky … embark on a romantic cruise on the Seine … stand in awe under the giant arches of Notre Dame … admire the “Mona Lisa” at the Louvre … and so much more. And nowhere is there more sophisticated dining, shopping and entertainment than here. Located just a block from the Champs-Elysée, your elegant, 4-star hotel puts you in the perfect position to explore as you please.

Available only with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single supplement: $345

Day 1 - Depart U.S. / Fly overnight to Paris

Depart the U.S. for France. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed with your flight itinerary.

Day 2 - Arrive in Paris / Begin your Pre-Trip Extension

Upon arrival at Paris Charles-de-Gaulle (CDG) Airport, claim your luggage and clear customs. If your luggage is lost, fill in a PIR form before leaving the customs area—VBT representatives are not allowed into the customs area. Please note: Make sure that your VBT luggage tags are attached to your bags. This helps the representative identify you.

After exiting customs, enter the arrival hall and look for your VBT representative or driver, who will be holding a VBT sign. Your representative will welcome you to France and arrange for your transfer via taxi or van to your Paris hotel (approximately 60 minutes, depending upon traffic). At this time, please verify with your airport representative the time of your private motorcoach transfer to Hotel La Tonnellerie, Tavers, where you will begin your main trip. Important: If you are delayed in meeting your VBT representative at the CDG Airport, please call 06 72 07 59 24 or 06 15 15 15 25 from within France. Outside of France, call +33 672 07 59 24 or +33 615 15 15 25.

VBT provides you with City Information in your Final Travel Booklet that includes information and recommendations on what to see and do in Paris. Use the rest of the day to relax or to begin exploring the City of Light.

Day 3 - Independent exploration of Paris

Today, see for yourself why this City of Light has inspired poets, lovers, emperors and artists for centuries. Visit Montmartre and its charming cafés and artists' colony, along with the Moulin Rouge, made famous by Toulouse-Lautrec in his vivid and colorful artworks. Or venture to the top of Notre Dame for a gargoyle's view of the city. Make a stop at the Eiffel Tower or one of the magnificent museums such as the Musée Picasso or the Musée d'Orsay. Take a stroll through the Tuileries Gardens on your way to the Louvre. You can walk to many of the major sights from your centrally located hotel.

Day 4 - Independent exploration of Paris / Join VBT Air Package guests
