help with 1st trip to Paris/London please

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 5 (kids ages 18,17,12) flying in and out of Paris and I am a little overwhelmed. We purchased discounted airline tickets through the Kayak website (Vayama) from JFK to CDG on XL Airways (has anyone heard of this airline?) and I have since read some very bad reviews about Vayama and mediocre reviews of XL Airways. Hopefully, the plane will get us there. Our trip is 13 nights total and we are planning to split the time between London and Paris. Is it reasonable to try to squeeze in a third destination, and if so, where? Our interests are food, history, hiking, good weather...and preferably something away from the mobs of tourists we will probably encounter in the cities. We plan to travel by train. Also, if we are coming from London on our last day, do we take the eurostar directly to CDG (our return flight is at night)? This is obviously our first trip. Thanks for any advice.
