It is possible to extend your stay in Paris beyond the dates of the Tour, see below, and you could also go wherever you'd like on your own and come back to Paris to fly back.
* I can book for you additional nights in the hotel where we stay in Paris for $315 in double, $270 in single, including breakfast.
* You can choose the option of Room and Meet for Dinner, in which you follow your own desires all day and meet us for dinner: add $125 per person to the price of the room above.
* You may want to participate in my Paris Itinerary which I guide, see below. Cost is $635 per day and per person, if group is of at least 4. These prices are all inclusive like the rest of the tour, in double accommodation, and therefore include, hotel, meals, drinks , bus, entrance fees etc.
Please note that this itinerary entails a fair amount of walking. We will take buses mostly when people are tired or if we need to speed up of for long distances. This itinerary may evolve in function of the dynamic of the group, the weather and opportunities.
DAY 12 Thursday October 3rd Walk to and visite of Sainte Chapelle with cut through line reservation. Notre Dame Visite of Towers of Notre Dame with cut through line reservation. Palais Royal Lunch Le Louvre (outside) Petit Carrousel Jardin des Tuileries Place Vendôme Grands Magasin Apéritif on the Grands Boulevards Dinner Chartier (a grand restaurant from the Belle Epoque for all Parisians. The food is ok, nothing more, but the style and atmosphere are unique, you will find yourself back in 1920 in no time)
DAY 13 Friday October 4 Today we have lunch in a rare gem of a small restaurant, very convivial, as Parisian as it gets. It is best to go there for lunch on a weekday. Disclosure: this restaurant is so authentic that its only toilet is a turk mode one. When I was growing up these were still the norm, although now they are kind of an oddity, a place of wonder worth preserving! There will be more modern bathrooms everywhere else, but you should know what to expect. Turkish toilets BTW, are supposed to be more hygienic, and other than that the restaurant meets all proper standards, in a very authentic package. Their food and wine have won them the respect of most Parisians in the know.
Walk to Pont des Arts Saint Germain des Près Saint Sulpice Bus to restaurant Lunch Jardin du Luxembourg Quartier Vavin Montparnasse
Special Dinner at my friend's Philippe Lambert in his Montparnasse's apartment. Philippe was born in Durham, although I did not know that until I moved here, he was first a customer, then became a friend. He grew up in Montréal, and is perfectly bilingual. The dinner will be catered by a top notch south west restaurant (Basque), we will have the wines of the tour, and Philippe will treat us with some accordion, as he is a rather accomplished modern style accordion player.
DAY 14 Saturday October 5
Ile Saint Louis Place des Vosges Lunch by the Canal Saint Martin Père Lachaise Cemetery Apéritif with game of pétanque Dinner Place Dauphine (a lovely square that is quintessentially Parisian on one of the islands)
