Looking for a different way to spend the holidays this year? It's hard to beat a colorful week in the City of Light with a merveilleux guide. And it turns out we still have a few seats available for a special holiday version of this already magical tour!
Recent tour members rave about this tour's hotel in the heart of Paris:
"Our hotel was wonderful. The breakfasts were sunny, even when the weather wasn't. The coffee was some of the best I'd had anywhere. When your front desk attendant and breakfast lady come out and wave goodbye as your airport shuttle leaves...that's real warmth!"
— Stacee in Sugar Land, TX
...and here's an excerpt from Rick's Christmas TV Special:
"Paris is nicknamed Europe's City of Light for its incandescent energy and effervescent culture. In the dark of winter, the city's best-loved icon, the Eiffel Tower, brilliantly heralds this happy season...
And neighborhood brasseries are full of friends slurping fresh oysters rushed in from the Brittany coast. Oysters are favorites at Christmas — which makes perfect sense as they're plump and delicious this time of year.
'Tis also the season of elegant edibles. Foie gras is especially popular during holidays. And chocolate shops and patisseries — wonderful any time of the year — get even better at Christmas.
The Eiffel Tower becomes the highest ice skating rink in Paris, kids ride ponies at Luxembourg Gardens, and the city's magical Maneges de Noels — the carousels of Christmas — spin memories.
Whether you're young — or just young at heart — Christmas in Paris is the stuff of dreams."
