Paris bike tourCap off your adventure with a sojourn in Paris and see for yourself why this City of Lights has inspired poets, lovers, emperors, and artists for centuries. Visit Montmartre and its charming cafes and artist's colony. Here too is the Moulin Rouge, made famous by Toulouse-Lautrec in his candid impressions. Or venture to the top of Notre Dame for a gargoyle's view of the city. You'll have plenty of time to make a stop at the Eiffel Tower or one of the magnificent museums like Musee Picasso or the Musee 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.

Available only with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single supplement: $295

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 transfer in 2 days' time to the Paris Montparnasse train station for your train to Libourne, 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.

Day 3 - Independent exploration of Paris

Today, see for yourself why the 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 Musee 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

Continue exploring the City of Light for another day. Exchange bureaus may not be open on Saturday afternoons or Sundays in Paris. You may want to exchange some money prior to joining the tour since ATM availability can be intermittent once you leave Paris.

VBT Air Package guests will arrive throughout the day.

Day 5 - Begin Main Tour

This morning we transfer to the railway station to catch our train to Libourne.
