FAQ

What does Paris du Jour mean exactly?

The term “du jour” implies the special offering of the day. Paris du Jour features a unique travel experience each day for your Paris visit. We offer private tours of Paris museums, a city walking tour to include the history, architecture and character in a special quarter, a delightful day trip to the Normandy region to enjoy Monet’s garden and village, a dinner in a private country estate, dinner in a Paris home, and day trips to other regions outside of Paris.

How many persons can reserve a place for a Paris du Jour trip?

Paris du Jour is not a bus tour or large package tour. Instead, our select activities and personal attention require small groups. A minimum of 6 persons is required for all tours. 8-10 persons are the maximum number of travelers in a tour group. Solo travelers are welcome. Single rooms as well as twin rooms are available for those traveling together and wishing to share a room.

How much walking is involved in the tour program?

The best way to see Paris is on foot. The tour involves a great deal of walking each day. We use the Paris Métro system to travel to our daily planned activities. The Paris Métro is the city’s underground public transportation system. Please review the tour itinerary and scheduled planned activities to see if the tour is a good fit for you.

Do the hotel rooms include private baths?

All rooms include private baths.

Why are some Paris du Jour trips designed for women only?

We love our men, but let’s admit it – there’s nothing like a girl trip to rejuvenate the soul of a “Venus.” Reserve your place and  invite your best friend or your sister or daughter or mom to escape to Paris with you!

How will I get to the hotel once I arrive in Paris?

The tour price includes private car service from the airport to the hotel. Transportation will be arranged for you. A driver will be waiting for you when you arrive at the airport. He will have your name and assist you with your luggage to the car. He will identify himself to you as the driver for Paris du Jour tour members. At the conclusion of the tour, transportation is included for your return to the Paris airport.

Is it possible to arrive before the tour begins or stay longer after the tour ends?

Rooms are reserved for two extra nights before the scheduled arrival day and two nights following the scheduled departure date. This allows tour members the option to arrive early and adjust to Paris time before the tour begins and/or spend a few extra days following the tour enjoying the city and checking off items on your own Paris list.

What does the tour price include?

The tour price includes 6 nights at Paris hotel, 6 continental breakfasts, round trip transportation from the airport to the Paris hotel, all activities/admissions and services of private guides listed in the planned tour itinerary, planned train travel, 12 Métro tickets per person, Welcome lunch and Welcome dinner, and some other meals listed in the tour programs.

Suppose I have to cancel my travel plans?
