We opted for an excursion that included lunch in a riverboat on the Seine. It was a rather brief tour of the main Paris landmarks--all from the bus. The lunch was a nice leisurely meal with lots of wine. It was very enjoyable, but as a sight-seeing expedition not so much. After lunch we had a little time to walk up and down the Champs-Elsees, and then back on the bus for the two-hour ride back to Le Havre. At least we can say we've been there. Read Less

It was a 3 hour drive each way but had never been to Paris. The bus ride was very comfortable w/one stop on the way. We saw the best of Paris Napoleon’s Arc de Triomphe, Opera House, Concorde Square, and Louvre Museum, & of course the Eiffel Tower. Then, board a boat for a relaxing cruise down River Seine past the Notre Dame Cathedral. This cruise surprised me, lots to see from the river. It was a great 10.5 hour day and worth every minute of it. We had free time to get a bite and shop before boarding the bus to return to the ship. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend/ Read Less

We used the Princess Best of Paris excursion because it is two and a half hours away from the Le Havre port. Our guide was lovely but we had a problem on the bus with air conditioning not working and the hottest day of the year. It was a wonderful overview with many highlights, including the Arch de Triumph, the Champs Elysee, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dam. Read Less

Very rushed and would have preferred a bit more time at each location. Too bad this couldn't have been an overnight stay or at least leave much later. Three hour drive to and from--six hours is a lot of time on the bus.

Glad we weren't driving through Paris!! The tour guide was very informative. We were told we would have 3.5 hrs on our own but we had just under 3 hrs. We took a river cruise on the Seine which enabled us to see more of the buildings but not experience anything else. The river cruise is 1 hr. but expect to take longer by the time one walks to the location to get on the boat and the wait time. We got off the bus at approx. 1:40 and had to be back on the bus at 4:30. We purchased the river cruise tickets from the tour guide. The other option was tickets to the Louvre. As much as I would have loved to visit the Louvre, there just wasn't time to see much. It was 4 p.m. by the time we got off the boat from the river cruise and we still had not eaten. We managed to get to a corner tavern to purchase our lunch to take back to the bus. If I were to do it again, I would just walk around the area or hire a pedestrian pedal cab. Read Less

Cruising up the Seine drinking wine, eating lunch and listening to live music. And they were accommodating to me being a vegetarian and gluten free. Was a great afternoon and well worth the bus ride to Paris from the Port. Only negative was returning to the ship the line to get back on was crazy So not sure if it was the French authority side or ship side. But it wasn't raining or too hot and didn't have to use the bathroom so worked out OK Read Less

LeHavre- we took the Paris city drive and Seine River cruise tour. Tour did provided as offered but you really needed to walk the city more to appreciate. Bus seating was very tight. A boring 3 hour ride to and from Paris, a drive by the attractions and the river cruise was not worth our time. Although the lunch cruise was a lovely boat I would have wanted more time wandering the city. Would not recommend to see Paris this way. Read Less
