Travel by foot or public transport and take in a number of the major historic sites of Paris including: Place de la Concorde, the Tuileries Gardens and the site of the Tuileries Palace, The Louvre Palace, the exterior of the Conciergerie and Place de la Bastille.

Take a walk through The Marais - one of the few areas of the city to escape Haussmann’s remodelling and which thus remains as it was at the time of the revolution.

We recommend taking a morning tour of the Palace of Versailles where the emphasis will be on the early months of the Revolution, covering events such as The Tennis Court Oath. 

Take your students behind-the-scenes of France’s premier stadium. Take a tour, in French or English, of the players’ tunnel, changing rooms, security facilities, pitch and photo museum. 

Paris’ best-known monument has outstanding city views, which on a clear day can stretch for 42 miles, giving the chance to pinpoint many landmarks. 

An enjoyable river cruise is a relaxing way to see the sights of Paris. Students also learn from the French (or English) commentary on their headsets.

Montmartre provides an opportunity for students to practise their language skills with its many street stalls and street artists, shops and cafés. Once a meeting place for artists in the late 19th and early 20th century, your group can also view artists painting portraits and caricatures for the tourists and enjoy a spectacular view of Paris from the steps of the Sacré Coeur.

Take a free guided tour in your choice of French or English and visit the museum and shop where you’ll find a wide range of fragrant products.

Probably the most famous museum in the world and home to some of the finest collections of antiquities, sculpture and art. It is the ideal place for students to see the prominent role that art plays in French culture. The museum is also home to cafés and shops where students can practise language skills too. 

A must for students, the dramatic architecture of the museum holds a unique collection of 20th century art covering the principal movements. Study services include gallery tours and audio guided tours.

A tailor-made coach tour of Paris that includes a dedicated French or English-speaking guide, who will help with pronunciation and knowledge of the many sights of Paris. One of our groups’ favourites is the evening tour of the Paris Illuminations. We can arrange walking tours too. 

Discover chocolate’s 4,000 years of history, and modern methods of making it too, then try some of the delicious products.

VOX headsets are ideal for groups in city environments - they enable the group leader or guide to speak comfortably without shouting, giving the group a better experience—no straining to hear!  The headsets are an ideal way to make yourself heard with your group and pass on information and instructions easily in busy areas.

This 196m tower has shorter queues than the Eiffel Tower and a fabulous view of Paris. The viewpoint tables clearly mark the city’s many famous monuments. There are also a number of audio-visual and interactive facilities to help build language skills and enhance their knowledge of Paris, as well as downloadable quizzes in English and French. 

Both Disneyland® Park and Walt Disney Studios® Park provide a great environment for your students to work together, bond as a group and challenge their personal boundaries on their school trip to Disneyland Paris.

Disneyland® Park 
Explore five themed lands filled with Disney classic stories: adrenalin packed thrill rides such as Big Thunder Mountain, Disney classics like Pirates of the Caribbean and Dumbo the Flying Elephant and many opportunities to meet your favourite Disney characters. 

Walt Disney Studios® Park
Step through the Studio gates and immerse yourself in the fascinating world of movies, animation and television. Find out how Disney creates the magic and feel what it’s like to be star of stage and screen.

 

Take a step inside a traditional Parisian theatre and spend an evening amongst the locals, at a French play with English subtitles. In the heart of Paris, see a play from one of a variety of genres; enjoy a classic love story, a modern French comedy or some musical theatre, all without missing a single word! From September 2018 - June 2019 groups can see Chicago Le Musical at Theatre Mogador.

This typically French theme park is home to over 30 outside attractions, all based around the famous Astérix comic-strips. Parc Astérix is especially well known for its large variety of roller coasters, and incorporates rides and themes from historic ancient cultures such as the Romans and the Gauls. 

Parc Astérix also offers live shows and entertainment, animated figures, arts and crafts, reconstructions, a dolphin show, special effects, restaurants and shops. This is a great opportunity for students to interact at this French theme park.
