Some excursions include a meal, either lunch or dinner or sometimes both. It all depends on the type of excursion, and how long it is. Full-day trips to other regions or further afield often include a meal or suggest it as an optional extra. If this is not the case, passengers are given some free time to make their own eating arrangements.
Quite a few Paris excursions also incorporate lunch or dinner, according to their themes. Menus can be consulted in the agencies and are chosen in order to suit the majority of people. However, it is possible to order replacement dishes. Kosher or vegetarian options are available on certain tours, remember to make your request-at the time of booking.
Excursion companies generally offer a wider choice of tours and more frequent departures during high season (between 1 April and 31 October). Cruises on the Seine river also operate more regularly and offer an extended timetable during this period.
Low season is between 1 November and 31 March.
