5 Days in Paris - Help!

Jump to last reply

My 13 year old and myself are travelling to Paris for the first time in mid July. We have 6 nights and 5 days to see it all! We are staying at a B&B in the 5th District. We need help in planning our stay - we would really appreciate your advice. The only thing for sure I know we will do is attend church at Notre Dame on Sunday morning (we arrive late Saturday night)
My daughter wants to do either Parc Asterix or Disney (which is going to be less crowded? - Mom here doesn't tolerate the sun or long lines too well !), I want to do an escorted day bus tour to outside of Paris, that leaves us only 3 days inside Paris - what do you think?
I'd also like to do an evening river or canal cruise - recommendations?
For the day trip outside of Paris - while I love Castles I'd really like to have part of the day roaming around a village but I don't see many tour companies offering that sort of a tour - do you have any recommendations?
Our B&B hostess is willing to do some walking tours of the other districts with us which I think will be very helpful.
Eifel Tour - book a tour to avoid the lines or ??
Your help on this would be SO MUCH appreciated! Merci!
