We include a guided tour of the Château followed by some free time. Later, we enjoy a panoramic tour of Paris by coach, where we will pass some of the city’s iconic sites; including the Eiffel Tower and the Champs Elysees. Don’t forget your camera as there will be photo stops along the way! We also include entrance and a trip to the top of the Montparnasse Tower. In just over 38 seconds you will be 200 metres above Paris and from the observation deck, you can take in the very best view of this beautiful city. We return to the hotel for a delicious Christmas Day evening meal with drinks included.
