The rep. met us at St. Pancras explained everything. After that we were completely independent.
We had plenty of time to enjoy Paris and the Metro day pass is a great plus.
We made reservations at Les Ombres restaurant, it was marvelous, definitely recommend! We upgraded to first class our way back
so worth it. you do have to get up early cause the train leaves early and you need to be at the meet up spot way before train departure. Once you get to the meet up point i got my ticket, the rep explained what my tour included and didn't. the train was very comfortable and clean and nice. I actually got a open bus tour when i got off in paris that made it easier to see all the major sites. All in all this was a great tour and worth every penny.
It's definitely worth doing. However, if you don't speak French at all (like me) it might be worth it to do a guided tour. Sometimes I felt like I was just wandering around. The train was nice and the info at the start was good too.
We loved the Eurostar train ride it was fantastic.. so smooth and quick. Being on the independent tour it was quite confusing once we got out of the station in Paris, a metro map might be a great idea to include with the passes so people would have the time to figure out the system before they got off the train. It was kind of scary for 2 female travellers who dont speak french leaving the station with no clue how to get anywhere so we just started walking to a less busy section so we could take some time to sort it out. Once we did though we had a great time. The cruise was awesome. We saw the eiffel tower up close and enjoyed sitting in a cafe watching the people go by while we drank tea and ate way too much bread : Overall it was a great day!
