Soak in incredible views of the City of Love from the second level of the Eiffel Tower and while touring its famed landmarks on a panoramic city tour. After getting your footing in French culture, board a train for a trip to the country's eastern shores, to Bayeux in Normandy.

The tour guides were very professional and informative. Accommodations were very nice. Whenever we arrived somewhere a driver or taxi was waiting for us. The choice of sites was great.
