Paris, the city of love and considered to be one of the romantic city in the world. This was my favorite choice of city to visit in our tour. On 30th September we drove from our hotel in London to Faulkstone, we had got our tickets to Le Shuttle, which would cross the English Channel through an underwater tunnel called Eurotunnel. That was a 35mins journey in train to cross the border of UK and enter France. We had to pass all types of checks and immigration as well before we board the train. This shuttle takes 4-wheelers, 2-wheelers, buses inside it and help them to cross the country. Its also a good way to import/export goods between UK & France. As soon as we left the station, the train enters the tunnel and we cannot see anything outside. But we could get down from our bus, roam inside train and we clicked few pictures too. Take a look of Le Shuttle below.
We had entered France and got down in a station called Calais. We changed our bus here, which was a long distance coach and drove towards Paris. It was around 290km of drive through country side which was so nice with so much of greenary to see in the surroundings. Highways were broad, roads were smooth and plain without any speed brakers and we reached Paris by 6pm in the evening.
The same evening we had to do our City tour as well. We met our local English speaking guide there and started our city tour with Arc de Triomphe. So far, we were 18 people and other 25 people joined us as part of Thomas Cook group who were there till the end of the tour.
