Paris Tips for Additional Days
Many clients plan to add an extra day or two to their Paris stay. After your Paris du
Jour tour, you will feel right at home in Paris. Two additional nights are available for
booking before the planned arrival date of June 12 and following the scheduled
departure date of June 18. You might want to spend some extra time shopping or
visiting other special highlights on your own personal Paris agenda. This extra hotel
booking must be requested at the time of your tour reservation. Your costs for the
extra nights, breakfasts or any other services you incur must be paid directly to the
hotel at the time of your checkout.

Walking Required!
Please remember to bring comfortable walking shoes. The best way to see Paris is on
foot. The tour involves a great deal of walking each day. We use the Paris Métro for
our transportation to and from many planned activities. The Paris Métro is the city’s
underground public transportation system. Therefore, there are lots of steps/stairs
involved. We ask that you carefully review the itinerary to decide if the planned daily
activities are a good fit for you. Please refer to our website for comments from
previous Paris du Jour participants. Paris du Jour looks forward to welcoming you to
Paris. Join us!
