France Tour Vacation Packages 2016
From the expensive rural regions and fashionable beach resorts, to the culture soaked cities, stylish France has so much to offer even the most discerning travelers. History, the latest fashions, amazing architecture, delicious cuisine and tasty wines, are just a few of the things that you will experience on France tours.
There's so much to see and do while you're in France that you'll want to make the most of your time here and learn all about the cities that you can visit. One of the best ways to do that is by taking an escorted tour, conducted by an expert. All of your hotels, transportation and basic sightseeing are taken care of with a balance of free time as well. Whether you prefer to see France at a slow pace, relax on a river cruise, hop aboard a high speed train, travel in a small group or on your own, there are many France tour packages to choose from. We suggest at least 3 to 4 nights in Paris combined with either a trip to Normandy, the wine region or the French Riviera for your first trip to France. One of our best selling trips is a 12 day vacation that starts in Paris and visits Nice, Venice, and Florence. A great way to get a taste of 2 amazing European countries.
Best Time to Travel to France
: France's weather varies depending on what part of the country you are visiting. We always recommend Paris in the Spring or the fall. The temperatures are more mild and there are less crowds.
France Quick Facts
: Unlike London, the Metro system in Paris can be confusing. If you plan on taking public transportation we recommend studying some of the signs before you travel. Of course if you are on an escorted tour transportation is all taken care of for you. While on the subject of the Metro, be careful with pick pockets, particularly around Metro and bus stations. Menus are not always available in English. It's a good idea to learn some basic French words. Traffic laws in Paris are often broken. Be careful crossing streets. Although most places do accept credit cards, they have a minimum of 15 to 20 Euro so for smaller purchase you will want some cash on hand. Discover is a popular option for travelers since they don't charge conversion fees, but not every place accepts it so have a Visa or Mastercard just in case.
