An excursion in the capital? A cruise with commentary? Answers to your questions on walks and outings in Paris

Our web site gives you a selection of companies that you can book with directly online.

You can make bookings in a variety of ways, either directly with the excursion organizers themselves, in their offices, by telephone, fax or internet, or through an intermediary: welcome centres of the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau or your hotel reception…

For excursions outside of Paris or abroad, or those involving guided tours, lunch, dinner, or shows, it is advisable to book several days beforehand.

Lastly, if you have been given a voucher by the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau or your hotel, make sure you keep it safe: you will need to hand it in before departure, either at the agency before a coach trip, or to the minibus driver for an excursion leaving from your hotel.

You can pay for your excursions directly at the agency; by credit card on the company’s web site (using links from our web site); at the welcome offices of the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau (payment in full in exchange for a voucher); at your hotel or apartment reception (payment in full or a deposit in exchange for a voucher).
