The Go Ahead Tour Agency

The Go Ahead Tour agency offers two different types of tour: a basic one, and another one for those who want to spend New Year’s Eve in our capital.

 

1) Paris: The City Experience

6 days / 5 nights (9 days / 8 nights with extension) trip

paris streets montmartre

This tour would be perfect for people who want to make the most of their time in Paris by staying for a whole week, and not only spend just a few days there.

After a shared meal with the rest of your group and your guide on the previous night during a welcome dinner to get to know the people you will share your trip with, you will start your excursions the next day with the discovery of the City of Light’s most iconic monuments.

The following days can either be free days for you to visit whatever pleases you the most or, if you would rather follow real planning, there are some excursions you can add to your trip, like a lunch at the Eiffel Tower or a visit to Versailles and its gardens on Day 6, for example.

If you did not have enough of Paris already and want to discover more of our capital, you can extend your stay for 2 days and enjoy some other free time there, as well as a farewell drink with the rest of your group on the last night before you go back home.

We like: the mix between tour group activities and being able to visit Paris on your own.

Cost: from $1,699 a person (prices vary depending on the period of your trip).

Included in the price: a 5-night accommodation in a well-located hotel (breakfast and 2 dinners with beer or wine included), the signature farewell experience in Montparnasse, a sightseeing tour with a local guide, an Expert Tour Director, and a 4-day Metro pass.

Not included in the price: the optional excursions that are offered during the free days.

6 days / 5 nights (9 days / 8 nights with extension) trip

Who never dreamed of ending the year and starting a new one in the City of Light? With this package tour, it is now possible, and the best thing is … you do not have to take care of anything, since everything you may need is included in this tour!

For the most part, this tour is very similar to the previous one that the Go Ahead Tour agency offers, except that some of the optional excursions differ – with this package, you will be able to visit Notre-Dame and the Marais if you want to, for example, an offer not available in the other one – but the main difference is obviously the night they have planned for you on New Year’s Eve.

Go up to Montmartre, where you will get one of the most beautiful overviews of Paris, and enjoy a night of festivities to end your last day of the year in the most magical manner with your group and Parisian people – around a celebratory dinner with a champagne toast.

This is the perfect trip to start a new year in the most perfect way!

We like: how magical Paris becomes during that time of the year, and being able to discover it without having to plan too much.

Cost: from $1,909 a person (prices can vary depending on the year).

Included in the price: a 5-night accommodation in a well-located hotel (breakfast and 3 dinners with beer or wine included – including the celebratory dinner and champagne for New Year’s Eve), the signature farewell experience in Montparnasse, a sightseeing tour with a local guide, an Expert Tour Director, and a 4-day Metro pass.

Not included in the price: the optional excursions that are offered during the free days.
